The Bottomless Ignorance of Barack Obama

THE BOTTOMLESS IGNORANCE OF BARACK OBAMA

by Steven Hayward   at  PowerLine:

“Liberals have gushed from the beginning on how brilliant Barack Obama is, and point from time to time to the fact that he was a professor of constitutional law (!) at the University of Chicago, one of the nation’s premier law schools. Of course, if you actually check on what he taught there, it was trendy lefty stuff like a course entitled “Race and the Law” (I have a friend who took this course from Obama) which was devoted exclusively to the creative uses of the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, which to many liberal is the entire constitution. There is no evidence that Obama ever taught, or studied, the structural aspects of the Constitution, as it is obvious that he (following Woodrow Wilson) has no respect for the separation of powers.

He has displayed his ignorance of our constitutional order before, such as this comment to Matt Lauer in 2012:

Well, it turns out our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change that I would like sometimes.

It turns out? It took him nearly four years in office to figure this out? Apparently, because he returned this this theme in his interview just out with GQ magazine:

But what I didn’t fully appreciate, and nobody can appreciate until they’re in the position, is how decentralized power is in this system. . . A lot of the work is not just identifying the right policy but now constantly building these ever shifting coalitions to be able to actually implement and execute and get it done.

Of course, that last sentence is the main point of Richard Neustadt’s legendary work on the persuasive requirements of the presidency, which much of the time Obama seems to think beneath him. I’m guessing Obama never read Neustadt. Maybe never heard of him. After all, these days he’s just another dead white male.

By the way, in that 2012 interview with Lauer, Obama said “One of the things about being President is you get better as time goes on.” Insert your own punchline.”

  1. This Occidental College-Columbia-Harvard educated dunce has nothing left in his rhetoric but nonsensical blabber about global warming/climate change. France is in mourning and in a state of high anxiety from the recurring terrorists attacks and this damned fool goes over there to talk rubbish about climate change?!…Our little blue planet periodically heats up and cools off!…There is ice building up in the Arctic and lots of snow coming our way!…On every continent the high and low of society, except our fool-in-chief, knows our little blue planet has been going through violent changes for billions of years; yep, unnerving changes that will continue!…Yet this man who not long ago said he intended to campaign in the 57 states of our Union, and uttered something about the US Marine ‘Corpse’ (not Corps), continues to make stupid pronouncements on the world stage. What gives with the American people? The man is the laughing stock of the world!…And so are we!…Yes, our first affirmative action president has turned out to be the most inept, controversial, idiotic, cowardly, numbskull Islamo-Marxist to date. It’s high time to impeach the man!…

    I just came back from a long trip abroad. I had some heated discussions about ‘the gun problem’ in our country. I reminded a mouthy Peruvian-Brit of his native country’s gun-less indigenous population’s suffering at the hands of the Spanish Conquistadores, and of the American guns that snatched his adopted country, Great Britain, from the jaws of the Nazi Huns. Moreover, I challenged him to discuss our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence. And I iced the cake by reminding him of our nation’s growing consumption of produce from his poverty-stricken Peru and other crappy South-American mud holes. I was on fire, to say the least. The temerity of this anti-American Marxist fool got to me.

    Unlike Obama, I am a proud American with no need to apologize and ready to put my life on the line for my homeland. What say you?…
