Does Obama review the speeches his writers provide?
Although it’s common knowledge to the traditional media that Barack Obama is our most intelligent president ever, he too often seems to possess a certain panache or savoir faire for looking like an idiot.
It might help if the President would preview his scripts in advance and ask a few questions as opposed to reading them cold off the teleprompter. (Yes, we know that fundraising keeps him hopping, but…)
Consider this howler offered by Barry Oh! with a straight face and plucked from a recent presidential speech:
The last thing we need right now is more top-down economics.
Barry, Barry, Barry. You’ve given us a command and control economy (legislation via regulation, policy directive, and Executive Order; Obamacare; automotive takeovers; bank and Wall Street bail outs; green “jobs”; the EPA; stimulus; crony capitalism; 40-plus months of above 8% unemployment; a massive growth in the federal debt; etc.) that’s proven to be an epic fail for America.
You, Mr. President, are the very face of top-down economics. Don’t you even have a clue?
And by the way, it isn’t the taxes. It’s the spending.
