It has become quite obvious why Barack Obama has never released his college transcripts. Obama is dumber than a hod of bricks, Steven Thomma, McClatchy Newspapers :
WASHINGTON – The deepening recession is taking a slight toll on President Barack Obama’s standing, but he’s still twice as popular as archnemesis Rush Limbaugh, according to a new McClatchy-Ipsos poll.
Archnemesis? Obama has the wrong target. Limbaugh is not the one trying to develop nuclear weapons and threating to wipe out Israel. That would be one Mahmoud Ahmadinejad . Limbaugh isn’t the one attacking our Navy on the high seas. That would be China . Lastly, Limbaugh is not the one that tanking the United States economy. That would be the one himself. Karl Rove in the Wall Street Journal :
Presidents throughout history have kept lists of political foes. But the Obama White House is the first I am aware of to pick targets based on polls. Even Richard Nixon didn’t focus-group his enemies list.
Team Obama — aided by Clintonistas Paul Begala, James Carville and Stanley Greenberg — decided to attack Rush Limbaugh after poring over opinion research. White House senior adviser David Axelrod explicitly authorized the assault. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel assigned a White House official to coordinate the push. And Press Secretary Robert Gibbs gleefully punched the launch button at his podium, suckering the White House press corps into dropping what they were doing to get Mr. Limbaugh
Call Obama what you will. Smart he isn’t. BO can no more salvage the wreck that is his economy by savaging Rush Limbaugh, than Adolf Hitler could salvage the German economy by attacking the Jews. They both are the politics of distractions. Smart people don’t fall for distractions.
