The Dumbest People In The Room

Yes, it has come to that- those are the people we elect nowadays- the dumbest people in the room, the ones who sat in the back of the class, and slept through the classes on math, and history, because they were boring. These are the ones who either had rich daddies, or made a living selling drugs and scamming the other students.

There is a set of people who have a native slyness, one that allows them to sidestep the ordinary rigors of actually doing the work that needs to be done, finding instead ways for others to do the work, and for themselves to grab the credit. These are the people who have, by and large, been elected to office, with their main accomplishments being able to read from a teleprompter, or having been married to another slacker who had been elected president.

Biden’s main accomplishment seems to be that he rode a train without getting lost or falling off. Some of the others are even less clear on their positive benefits to society. Geithner? Sorry, he’s Secretary of the Treasury, and can’t even count- Janet Napolitano? She was a Governor of a border state, and was apparently blind to illegal immigration. What? Yea, you heard me- I said she wouldn’t know a Mexican if she was to see one, and she probably had an army of them sprucing up the Governor’s mansion.

Charlie Rangel? He is the one responsible for writing the tax code that you and I have to follow, but he apparently does not, with rental properties in the Dominican Republic, and leased cars going untaxed- why? His response was that he did not understand the tax code. What?

And all the “Czars”? The guy in charge of the cars has no knowledge of the auto industry, and all the rest do not know what they are doing- all they DO know is that they are to be loyal to the death for Hussein- okay, maybe not death- but then again, how do we know?

Hussein has been busy re-making America (at least the financial sector, so far) in the socialist image, where if you have spare money, well you might as well give it to someone poor, because the government surely will.

Barney Frank, the architect of the home mortgage meltdown, now wants to do the same thing for condominiums, asking Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac to loosen regulations so poor people can buy condos- this is how things got so bad in the first place- Franks forced the banks to loosen the regulations on home loans, which were guaranteed by Fannie Mae, because Barney Franks forced them to do so, and the whole house of cards came tumbling down.

If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result, Barney Franks and anyone else on the Banking Committee who agrees with him are insane. They should be wearing a special helmet and kept away from sharp objects.

And now Hussein “isn’t ruling out a second stimulus?” I’m sorry, but I feel the country has been over- stimulated as it is- the last thing we need is some know- nothing saying, “Spend mo’ money!” “Show me the Benjamins!” It is obvious that he is and has been over his head on virtually every issue except possibly planting Michelle’s garden- wait, that was her decision? Scratch that last comment.

Just how stupid do these people have to be before we say, “No, nope, they are too brain dead to elect them.” I mean, it is not like elective office is a playtime where they can eat glue and play with rounded scissors- if it was, it surely wouldn’t affect all phases of our lives as it does. 

We need the smartest people in the room, not the dumbest.

Yet look at who we elected.

    Considering how dumb Biden is, that’s actually fairly impressive.

    “And now Hussein “isn’t ruling out a second stimulus?””

    I say do it, Barry. We all know what’ll happen if you do. I’ve seen the polls and know that the vast majority oppose a second ‘stimulus.’

    Yeah, why not have strings pulled so that you can join a branch of the military and not only you have zero chance of actually doing anything productive but also that you hardly have to show up?

        I didn’t assume a thing, Blake. I simply applied your statements to the previous Republican president, using the current Democratic president as a reference when necessary. Kinda puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?

          There is (was) a lot about Bush I would have changed, but at least he had the stones to try and do some things that needed doing, but was blocked by the libbies on everything from Social Security to this financial crisis which the dems began in the banking and finance committees. Di

          I wrote about the CURRENT administration, as the previous one is not in power, except in your mind.
          So these NEW people are supposed to get us out of what you claim the previous one got us INTO?
          \Doesn’t look to good for your team- in fact, they have spent four times what Bush has done- and the crisis is all the Dems, as they were the ones who caused it.
          You all say it happened on “Bush’s Watch”, as if he alone is supposed to solve this debacle of the Dems own making- but it is the Legislature that makes the laws, not the President, or do you not know about “checks and balances”?

      • Randy says:

        Blake, it would be really neat to hear you actually respond to what Savonarola is saying. It really is ironic that you would post what you did, criticizing current leaders when your criticisms clearly, and more appropriately apply to George W. Bush. What do you have to say about GW Bush’s college record?

        • Big Dog says:

          George Bush had a higher GPA than Kerry and he flew fighter jets so it is not like he was stupid. And at least Bush went into a branch of the military while Obama was writing anti military columns for the paper.

          The same military he is now in command of loved Bush. He is a genuine leader unlike the guy in there now.

          I want to know when the MSM will start the body count of troops that are dying in Afghanistan because of Hussein.

          Yet the above statements that Blake directs at people he dubs “stupid” apply very, very well to GWB. If GWB isn’t stupid, then Blake’s statements must not be sufficient conditions for indicating stupidity.

          I’d argue that speaking out against improper military action is more honorable than “entering the military” in a way that ensures you never see combat, but that’s admittedly an opinion.

          DOG
          … the body count of troops that are dying in Afghanistan because of Hussein.

          SAV
          This is where you gut your respectability, Dog. Afghanistan was a quagmire that only dropped off of U.S. citizens’ radar because of an overhyped, bullheaded invasion of Iraq. Afghanistan was still a mess before Obama took over. It’s unbelievable that the party of warmongering now wants to point fingers at Obama for inheriting a mess.

          • Big Dog says:

            How would you classify it as improper. All of them were done Constitutionally. Soldiers do not get to decide, they follow the orders. Your claim might make sense if Obama was against a particular war, he is anti military.

              SAV
              For one recently unpopular example, justified by fabricated “evidence” is a qualifier. But I wasn’t actually talking about any specific example.

              Non-sequitur. My claim makes sense regarding any military impropriety, plus it referenced voluntarily joining the military, so the “soldiers do not get to decide” defense is irrelevant.

          BIGD: “George Bush had a higher GPA than Kerry…”>>

          DAR
          Let’s see if this amounts to anything:

          Bush’s four-year average grade was 77; Kerry’s was 76.

          There is a phrase for this, it’s called “statistically, insignificant.”

          BIGD: “…and he flew fighter jets so it is not like he was stupid.>>

          DAR
          And why was he joy riding in those soon to be discontinued fighter jets? Let’s ask him:

          “I was not prepared to shoot my eardrum out with a shotgun in order to get a deferment. Nor was I willing to go to Canada. So I chose to better myself by learning how to fly airplanes.” –GW Bush

          Fogerty’s “Fortunate Son” (“I Ain’t No Senator’s Son”) should have been written for Chicken Hawk Bush.

          Bush hid out (when he bothered to show up) in a place he new would keep him safe from doing what the military does.

          BIGD: The same military he is now in command of loved Bush.>>

          DAR
          Time to update that one. Bush was so bad he changed that. The military, which used to be a republican stronghold is shifting strongly against them. You can thank your warmonger in chief for that.

          “Three years ago, 60 percent of military voters polled by the Military Times identified themselves as Republican. Today, that number has dropped to 46 percent.” –Dallas Morning News, Monday, July 30, 2007

          As to why, see GOP to Vets: Drop Dead!

          This carried over to the defense industry too. Bush got a lot more money than Kerry, and then this happened:

          “Hillary Clinton receives largest number of military donations… from the defense industry

          The defense industry this year abandoned its decade-long commitment to the Republican Party, funneling the lion share of its contributions to Democratic presidential candidates, especially to Hillary Clinton who far out-paced all her competitors.”
          Link.

          But this is the clincher:

          ***
          War Critics Obama, Ron Paul Get Most Military Donations

          “Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Ron Paul have little in common politically, except their opposition to the Iraq war.

          Both top a new list of presidential candidates receiving campaign contributions from people who work for the **four branches of the military** and National Guard, according to a study released Thursday by the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics.

          Obama, an Illinois senator, brought in more donations from this group than any White House contender from either party. The Democrat announced Wednesday his plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of 2008.” Link.

          The military luvs them some ‘Bama. Please make a note of it.

          I am not so impressed with “Degrees” and don’t recommend anyone else be impressed either. Bush had a “Bachelor’s degree in history” and an “MBA.” I’m not educated enough to know if that adds up to “two Master’s Degrees” but I don’t think it does.
