Sen Obama has, to be both blunt and precise, no experience doing anything other than accepting cash from interested parties to do their bidding in the corrupt Chicago polity.
In the event you have been wondering, that is the “job” of a “Community Organizer” in Chicago.
Justice Clarence Thomas has reached the pinnacle of his profession simply by being the best through position after position after position. From the MO Atty General’s Office to Asst Sec of Education to running the EEOC, to sitting on the second-highest court in the land, the DC Circuit. Thomas further has written opinions very highly regarded within the legal community for the acumen and grasp of issues he has displayed.
When asked who he would NOT have named to the Court, Sen Obama arrogantly and condescendingly (does he know ANY other way to talk?) declared that Thomas was not “a strong enough.. legal thinker.”
With all of his purported education (of course given that the average grade at Harvard is an A- , actually it is past evident that nearly no actual education is taking place) it actually seems he is unfamiliar with the term “Hubris.”
Where on earth does a man with NO experience at ANYTHING, with NO demonstrated competence at working, hiring, firing, decision-making – or even holding hearings in his own US Senate subcommittee, with no disciplined thinking or writing to his credit at all, get off slamming the experience of an extremely experienced and successful man such as Justice Thomas?
Obama may not like Thomas’ worldview, but for an inexperienced naif like Obama to challenge Thomas’ experience? Please.
His hubris in thinking he is ready to be president, that he is intellecutally prepared – to say nothing of experientially prepared – is fantastical.
Obama is not ready to answer intelligently an ad-hoc question or participate in an ad-hoc debate. How is he going to respond to an ad-hoc attack on an ally – or by an ally – on another country – or our own?
His refusal to meet McCain in informal Q&A sessions is tacit admission of Obama’s absolute inability to think on his feet.
Does Obama have any original thoughts? Perhaps that is why he is unable to react on his feet? He votes down-the-line-liberal, regardless of the issue; the most liberal voter in the Senate. Maybe he just can’t think on his own?
Guess what? The world is an ad-hoc place.
There is no teleprompter in the Oval Office telling the President how to respond when Russia invades a neighboring country.
(One wonders if Obama even recognizes the parallels of the past several years with the 1930s – and of the Russian invasion of nearby states “to protect” Russians with Hitler’s invasion of the Sudentenland “to protect” Germans. And we know what happened then — but does Obama?)
And people are going to VOTE for this guy?
What are they thinking?
Thanks, once again, to unionized teachers and the generations of non-thinkers they have given America.
