I have been saying for quite some time that Obama is not THE smartest president. Indeed, he is not even a "smart" president. It seems my analysis is starting to gain traction among the journalistic punditry. For anyone even with a semi-unbiased eye, it has been evident as soon as Obama started acquiring a track record, that he was not the brightest bulb in the sockets. But with the latest "crises' that have befallen his regime, it has become apparent to all but 2 groups. Those more stupid than he, and those so immersed in partisan rhetoric, they cannot see truth for talking points.
It is refreshing to see others now echoing what I have been saying for 18 months. I was not impressed with his supposed intelligence from the get go, but then very few people can come across as geniuses at every turn. Some will joke about their foibles, acknowledging they goofed. Obama never has. Some even go so far as to say "I was wrong". Obama never has. He has lied and then tried to spin the lies, but the truth is, he is too narcissistic to admit error, and too stupid to realize how bad that makes him look.
Obama is not a smart president. He may not be the dumbest, but one will never know because of his narcissism. So to the rest of the nation, he just appears to be stupid. We are almost 3 full years into his regime, and his only comeback is that it is "Bush's" fault. That worked for the first few months (even longer for the IQ challenged), but it is apparent the latest debacles are all his. He attacks the messengers of bad news. His enemy list now exceeds Nixon's and Nixon had twice as long to compile his.
His errors exceed Carter's and Carter had 4 full years to accomplish them. In short, if he is not the stupidest president in history, he is trying his damnedest to be seen as such.
