Obama misquotes …who knows what? He has again fallen prey to his own arrogance as liberal/socialist/commie punks often do. He assumes that because he is really smart in one area…”community organizing,” I suppose…that he naturally believes he is smart in other areas. Come on…. (I’m not going to mention the socialists we see comparing the Holy Family to the illegal aliens invading our country at Obama’s behest. The statements and analogies are too idiotic! But, maybe another time. It would be fun.)
I run into this sort of thinking frequently in my business. My clients will sometimes tell me how to run their litigation. I try to be polite and usually let them tell me how we should be doing things. To a point. But, I only allow that sort of stuff in cases where they are paying an hourly rate. If they want me to waste my time and money doing the wrong thing, they’ve come to the wrong shop. I learned early during the practice that if a client wants to have some laughs during litigation, it will be on their own dime.
One of the reasons clients can get “sideways” in such a manner is because they know how smart they are (usually). And after a few hours around me…they can easily tell how smart I am. (I suspect it’s real easy.) Then they sometimes conflate I.Q. with knowledge about the Law Biz. This is as dangerous as keeping out-of-date law books around. You can hear the gears inside their heads grinding and burning. It’s in their eyes. They might as well say, “I’m as smart as you so here’s what we’re gonna’ do.” Such logic is as wrongheaded as being a great stockbroker and assuming that your expertise will carry over to some mystical portion of the brain and facilitate you performing your own lobotomy. You might be as smart as your brain surgeon, but you haven’t been to med school and you probably don’t know what he/she knows. Even if you’ve read lots of books, DON’T try it at home.
Obama’s brain has similarly tricked him into believing he can perform his own lobotomy…or that he hasn’t already gotten one. Just because you’re good at getting un-wed welfare moms to the polls on time in Chicago doesn’t necessarily translate to having an innate ability to go “off teleprompter.” Particularly if you’re gonna’ engage in another area of expertise…like quoting the Bible to support your poorly disguised and failing socialist agenda(s). Perverting and distorting Bible passages can be risky. Liberals and commies should remember that just because they were clever enough to fool the voters doesn’t mean they are clever about anything else. Voters fall asleep frequently. The depth of their deep R.E.M. sleep does not equate to gray matter in your cranium.
This phenomenon first became noticeable (in my recent memory) when Howard Dean said his favorite New Testament book was Ecclesiastes. He was met with laughter only in homes where his faux pas was on the family TV. I don’t remember any of the reporters in his entourage laughing…which made me wonder how much they paid attention in Sunday School…or anywhere. (A tip to help out any liberals accidentally reading this…Ecclesiastes was penned by a guy(s) named Solomon and Lemuel…who may have been Solomon’s nom-de-plum…or his son. Decidedly not a New Testament writer. I hope that’s helpful for you (few) liberal/commie readers.)
Obama and Dean differ from Biden who gets the rap of being the Democratic Party’s Dummy. Biden is smart enough to utilize a big quote by writing it down…wholesale with no attribution…instead of verbalizing it in front of reporters. Of course, Biden has changed since his youthful days in law school. The arrogance that comes naturally from jerking indiscriminately on the levers of power has infected him, too. When he goes sans-teleprompter anything can happen…and usually does.
In fairness, even he hasn’t sunk to the levels of “WHAT DOES IT MATTER?” Or, “We have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.”
I still can’t forget a free throw I missed in a big game about forty years ago. I can’t shake that scene. there were some bone-head moves in the courtroom, too. What must it feel like to have uttered one of these stupid statements for Pelosi or Mrs. Clinton?
My guess is they moved on pretty easily.
