She’s nearly as smart as Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi combined.

Harvard-educated First Lady.

Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a Naturalization Ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America . The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington , D.C.
She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence, “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.”

Excuse me? Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America ?

-Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania .
-Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James
Madison were born in Virginia .
-John Adams was born in Massachusetts .
-Only eight of the 56 were not born in America. Surely she
knew this.

But, then again, maybe not. After all, she is a Harvard graduate. Isn’t she???

As John Wayne said …. “Life’s tough.
It’s tougher when you’re stupid!!”

 

Ps. This is like Obama saying while campaigning in Beaverton, Oregon on May 29, 2008, that he has visited 57 States

Robert Spencer in PJ Media: Obama’s Freudian Slip was true

Jihad Watch

In PJ Media today I discuss a strange case of Barack Obama accidentally telling the truth.

Barack Obama, lauded for his allegedly spellbinding eloquence, sure makes a lot of verbal miscues: “57 states,” “my Muslim faith,” etc. If he were a conservative Republican, he would have long since been banished to the Dan Quayle Rest Home for Tongue-Tied Politicians.

Now he adds yet another to his Biden-worthy list: in his Pentagon address on the Islamic State (ISIS, or ISIL, as the president insists on calling the group) Obama boasted:

With the additional steps I ordered last month, we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces.

In a clumsy attempt to repair Obama’s slip, the transcript at White House.gov added the word “Iraqi” in brackets after “ISIL,” rendering the statement incoherent. And that was that, except for the lingering impression that Obama’s words had left. This particular presidential slip, judging by his policies, was more Freudian than most.

Because Obama was correct: his policies have resulted in the strengthening of ISIL forces by supplying them with much-needed weaponry.

Birds of a Feather

American Thinker

Is  Barack Hussein Obama a Muslim?  Even if he were, it would hardly matter.   For his policies are apparently animated by an ideology that, even though  a polar opposite of militant Islam, is little different from it in terms of  objectives and results.

One  can understand why so many people believe that Obama might be a Muslim.

What Is Barack Obama?

Pajamas Media

Roger L. Simon thinks Obama’s deranged, and Roger’s the son of a good psychiatrist, so he knows what he’s talking about.  I don’t doubt that our president has his issues–just look at his nutty mother, consider the impact of being abandoned by dad–but I don’t think that just putting Obama on the couch is the best way to understand him.

Put him in the classroom instead.  Because he’s the stereotypical American undergrad at a stereotypical Ivy League college in the age of political correctness.

He doesn’t much like America or Americans, or the “former colonial powers” like Britain.  Like so many would-be intellectuals, he admires lefty writers and screenwriters and actors and actresses.  He likes the downtrodden, like the Palestinians, but he’s overcome with awe for the occasional cool (non-Western) monarch or emperor (whether Arab or Chinese).  He probably has a Che tee shirt tucked away in a drawer, don’t you think?

He doesn’t know much history (he thinks Muslims invented printing), geography (his America has 57 states), or economics (he believes you can reduce health care costs by adding millions to the public rolls).

The most important thing to this president is how you feel and what you say, not all those annoying facts (50 states, the Chinese invented printing, and you increase deficits when you spend more).  And, like most students, when the debate goes badly for him, the president makes fun of his critics–when he actually lets them talk a little bit.  Remember when he hosted a few Republicans in the White House so he could listen to what they might say about health care…and then talked twice as much as they did?

As a typical undergrad, Obama loves to talk, and loves to talk about peace and justice.  You know, the really important things.  His new nuclear policy is right out of a college bull session:  “Why don’t we just promise not to use them?”  Nukes are bad, ugly things. Doesn’t everyone agree that the world would be better off without them?

Well,  grownups don’t necessarily agree.  It all depends how you get there, and what the others do along the way.  We do have real enemies, but our undergrad-president understands their ire and shares their pain.  It’s up to us to make things right.  And so he apologizes, worrying more about our nukes (about which he has done something) than Iran’s (we haven’t done a thing).

Finally, he doesn’t seem to realize what a mess he’s making.  And when he gets his grades, he blames the professors (we the people, in this case) for being unfair.

That’s the sort we’ve been graduating for a generation or more, isn’t it?  Did you really think we’d never get one as president?
