Mirror Mirror On The Wall, Who’s The Dumbest Of Them All?

The Smartest Man In The Room

Remember? That’s what Obama’s acolytes used to call him right before they swooned at his feet. That was, of course, before the Sire embarked on his campaign tour of the “57 states”, and prior to his National Prayer Breakfast lauding of a hero of the Navy as a “corpse-man.”  Now we find he can’t spell the name of a country with but five letters in it, botching two of ’em.  That’s a 40% failure–but it’s still better than his current public approval rating. To be fair, the blame for this particular faux pas might be laid at the feet of a negligent proof-tweeter.  Still.  The preponderance of the available evidence indicates that Obama really is the smartest man in the room.  But only if he’s in there by himself.

Obama Misspells Libya on Twitter Feed (Publius Forum)

[…] Is this all a big deal? No, not really. But it sure is fun to tweak the big world traveler, isn’t it? Of course, maybe we shouldn’t get all crazy here. Maybe they spell it “Lybia” in Kenya so Obama came by it naturally? We should check on that. Or maybe a corpse-man can help him with this spellin’ and cypherin’? Or, or maybe Obama can hire a spelling tutor for his staff in that 57th State he visited during the campaign? We should all try to help the Prez as much as we can, here. Heck, maybe the USA should apologize for forcing the world to spell it “Libya”? Maybe we are at fault after all? I am sure this will factor into the next great world Apology Tour.

The Smartest Man In The Room II

Here we have a real contender for the ‘Smartest Man’ title.  Allen West is an impressive guy.  And he doesn’t need a teleprompter to feed him his facts.  In this episode, Col. West wipes the floor with an Islamic interlocutor.

The Dumbest Person In The Courtroom…

Judge Gladys Kessler, appointed to the federal bench by Slick Willie Clinton, has issued a ruling that is either breathtakingly stupid or appallingly totalitarian, opening the judicial floodgates to the regulation of private thoughts as they pertain to decision making which runs contrary to that of which Big Brother approves:

Fed Judge: Now the Commerce Clause Covers ‘Mental Activity’ (American Thinker)

According to federal Judge Gladys Kessler of the DC US District Court, the powers granted to the federal government on the Commerce Clause extend to regulating “mental activity.” Ruling on an ObamaCare challenge brought by 2 individuals, the good Judge made the leap from “physical activity” to “mental activity” in extending the reach of the federal government. This is not a joke. According to Judge Kessler:

“As previous Commerce Clause cases have all involved physical activity, as opposed to mental activity, i.e. decision-making, there is little judicial guidance on whether the latter falls within Congress’s power…However, this Court finds the distinction, which Plaintiffs rely on heavily, to be of little significance. It is pure semantics to argue that an individual who makes a choice to forgo health insurance is not “acting,” especially given the serious economic and health-related consequences to every individual of that choice. Making a choice is an affirmative action, whether one decides to do something or not do something. They are two sides of the same coin. To pretend otherwise is to ignore reality.”

…And The Smartest

    As always, sci-fi writers see things coming long before most of us:

    Minority Report (2002)
    “In the future, criminals are caught before the crimes they will commit, but one of the officers in the special unit is accused of one such crime and sets out to prove his innocence.”

      Morning, GA. Phil Dick was pretty prescient for a moonbat from Berkeley. And when he was in a jam, it wasn’t any of his left-wing San Francisco pals that bailed him out. It was the ‘right-wing libertarian’ sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein. From Wikipedia:

      “Several years ago, when I was ill, Heinlein offered his help, anything he could do, and we had never met; he would phone me to cheer me up and see how I was doing. He wanted to buy me an electric typewriter, God bless him—one of the few true gentlemen in this world. I don’t agree with any ideas he puts forth in his writing, but that is neither here nor there. One time when I owed the IRS a lot of money and couldn’t raise it, Heinlein loaned the money to me. I think a great deal of him and his wife; I dedicated a book to them in appreciation. Robert Heinlein is a fine-looking man, very impressive and very military in stance; you can tell he has a military background, even to the haircut. He knows I’m a flipped-out freak and still he helped me and my wife when we were in trouble. That is the best in humanity, there; that is who and what I love.”

    luv it Bob..o yea ..I wonder if can spell Ameri(k)a?..lol keep up the fight my friend. (hugs!)

    • Bob Mack says:

      Afternoon, ANGEL. You keep punching too. Great post on Capt. Fields:

      A Tulsa police captain who refused to require that some of his subordinates attend a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at a Tulsa mosque filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday, claiming that his First Amendment rights have been violated.

      Via Fox News:

      However, according to a promotional flyer, the Islamic event included not just food and entertainment, but “presentations” on “beliefs, human rights, and women.” They would also be able to watch a Muslim prayer service and take a tour of the mosque.

      “It’s up to you,” the flyer stated.

    Herman Cain is another candidate that hasn’t really had any exposure.
    Cain would destroy Obama in a debate, and for that matter, so would West.
    I contend that we will never see a debate between Obama and Cain, or West.
    Obama would be clearly outclassed.

    Obama couldn’t hold a candle to Col. Allen West, no matter how hard he tried. Barry Sotero is George Soros’useful idiot and an embarrassment. There is just no way to explain the man to other countries.

    Btw, I totally love grandma, lol.

    Great post Bob, made my day. Thanks.

    Well Bob, looks like the Blogs are lining up and punishing the Chosen One and his Motley Crew. These demonstrations are getting a lot of attention and these knuckleheads have no clue how adversely this will affect America’s opinion of them. I would like to take the time to thank President Obama and the Unions for all the material they provide me at my post. Without them, what would I write about? Oh, I know, American Prosperity and Hope! Duh, what was I thinking?

    • Bob Mack says:

      You’re right about that, SAMI. The NY Post has a good piece on the “Flee-baggers”: Dems Hiding In Plain ‘Spite’

      Wisconsin state Sen. Dave Hansen, the assistant minority leader, thought he was staying at a secret location in Harvard, Ill., just south of the Wisconsin border.

      That was until a group of picture-taking party activists from the Northern Illinois Tea Party showed up at the Heritage Inn and Suites off of Route 14.

      Hansen, officially outed, looked like a deer caught in the headlights of a speeding tractor trailer.

      The lawmakers fled the state to avoid voting on a Republican-sponsored bill that would curb collective bargaining by public workers.

      Their run for the border galvanized local Tea Party activists, who, along with the national media, have been in hot pursuit ever since.

      As long as the Democrats stay away, the 19 Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate can’t muster the crucial 20th vote they need to pass the controversial legislation.

      You can’t make this stuff up. I can’t post fast enough to keep up with all these Democratic buffoons.

      • bydesign001 says:

        Lol. Bob, this is indeed priceless.

        Last night as I watched Fox News update us on the runaway senators, my 5 year old sitting next to me and dozing (or so I thought) mumbled, “You can run but you sure can’t hide.”

        These cowards/weasels/runaways’s salaries should be docked for everyday that they were out of Wisconsin and Indiana.

    • bydesign001 says:

      Samiam, Obama and the unions are the gift that keeps on giving. They are all such a nasty lot. Oh yes and God bless the internet.
