President Barack Obama is a military genius. Simply ask him and he'll affirm my statement.
I am not going to fact-check Obama's ramblings during the third presidential debate because he embarrassed himself as the Commander-in-Chief and everyone who has ever served in uniform.
Obama claimed to a group inner city of youths back in the 2007-08 cycle that he once considered a career in the military. Politicians make those sorts of claims in an attempt to connect with voter groups. But, of course, what Obama was also saying to them standing there in civvies, is that he clearly rejected the idea of doing the kind of patriotic service that our troops choose. However he was a community activist, and he has equated that with military service in the twisted narcissistic world where he resides.
When President Obama was of military age, he was a woozy, Choom Gang member who smoked a bit more bamabalacha (marijuana) than is 'optimal' and did more than a few lines of cocaine (Sinclair). His Communist Party affiliations and personal friendship with convicted terrorist - Weatherman, Bill Ayres (who ghost-wrote his autobiography) would have denied him any sort of security clearance. Which would have condemned him to a service of cleaning toilets and sweeping floors in common areas BUT not where sensitive information was discussed.
However as elected president, he has access to every bit of classified information available. Riddle me that?
Obama stated flatly for the national television audience that sequestration would not happen as scheduled on Jan. 2. Within minutes, however, Obama political aide David Plouffe was scurrying around the Florida debate site telling reporters that what the (Nobel Peace Prize laureate) Chicagoan really meant was sequestration "should not" happen.
Obama also told the debate audience that the idea of debilitating mandated defense budget cuts was Congress' idea. However, Bob Woodward documented in his recent book, "The Price of Politics," that the toxic sequestration idea was actually delivered to Congress by Obama chief of staff Jack Lew in a meeting with Democrat Majority Leader, Sen. Harry Reid. (IBD)
Everyone knows that a trillion dollar cut will have an impact on military readiness. But if you're a super genius, you can spin it so that a trillion dollar cut isn't noticed at all. Isn't that right Mr. President?
