Breakfast Scramble: Dumbo Dumb, Binny Not So

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
How dumb is Dumbo I:

Washington (CNN [1]) – President Barack Obama used an immigration speech Tuesday to take a jab at News Corporation CEO, Rupert Murdoch, who owns Fox News Channel.

Obama quoted the CEO, an Australian native, who said “Immigrants have made America great as the world leader in business, science, higher education and innovation.”

“That’s Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News, and an immigrant himself,” Obama said. “I don’t know if you’re familiar with his views, but let’s just say he doesn’t have an Obama bumper sticker on his car.”

Evidently President Fifty Seven State is too stupid to discern the difference between legal and illegal immigration.  Then that is what you would expect from the most uneducated President in US history.

How dumb is Dumbo II, from Jim Geraghty, National Review [2]:

CBS’s Mark Knoller, covering a town hall on the economy with the president this morning, reports: “President Obama blames high unemployment rate on ‘huge layoffs of government workers’ at federal, state and local levels.”

This is completely wrong. Extremely and mind-bogglingly wrong. Epically wrong.

Unlike Obama, Jim backs up his claims with actual numbers.

Binny not so dumb, the late Usama bin Laden:  “I know Dick Chenney, and Joe Biden you are no Dick Chenney” , from Tony Harden, Telegraph [3] (UK):

US officials have revealed that Osama bin Laden’s diaries contain the rather startling conclusion that he didn’t think Vice President Joe Biden was worth bumping off (hat tip: a tweet from my New York colleague Jon Swaine).

According to ProPublica, the Obama administration is briefing that Barack Obama was bin Laden’s the “top target” (no surprise there) while “military chiefs like the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the defense secretary” were also major scalps.

But Joe Biden’s scalp (hair plugs and all)? Apparently, not so much. A counterterrorism official said: “There is a note indicating that the vice president s not an important target because that position has less weight.”

Dumbo will not drill, from Amanda Carey, Daily Caller [4]:

The Obama administration on Wednesday slammed a House bill that would allow oil companies to drill in at least 50 percent of the Outer Continental Shelf and open up areas in the South Atlantic for oil production.

The bill, titled, “Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act,” is expected to pass the House late Wednesday or Thursday. In its “Statement of Administration Policy,” the White House claimed the bill would undermine and circumvent the process by which officials currently deem areas safe to lease for drilling.

I think our moron who is President actually likes the idea of four dollar gasoline.  Do you?
