The ignorant omniscience of President Obama
« on: November 15, 2013, 06:45:04 AM »
He knows everything. And yet he seems to know nothing. He’s passionate about the details of domestic policy but wasn’t privy to the details of his own legacy law. He’s an academic with a command of every issue at once but seemingly only finds out what his administration is doing in news reports. He’s so brilliant every normal endeavor he’s tried has bored him, but he couldn’t bother to entertain himself with more than one monthly meeting on the make-or-break program of his presidency. He’s the captain of the Culture of Competency who has overseen the most incompetent rollout of an entitlement program in history.

I was struck by a moment in President Obama’s press conference today where this paradox was on full display. The president floated, throughout the press conference, from profession of utter ignorance to confident declaration and directive. Allahpundit noted that Obama distanced himself from the website’s problems by saying he was never informed of its problems. He knew nothing.

He knows everything. And yet he knows nothing.

It's his one and only talent / skill.

Sowing confusion,  misdirection, inconsistency, sleight of hand.  Supplemented with steady, uninterrupted lies, lies about the lies, positions that change hourly, and so on.

He just keeps a huge system / tapestry / mosaic of this garbage going at all times, and with the help of the media, gets everything he can out of the confusion, and the ignorance of people who don't even want to think about.

Literally his only method to being president......a smokescreen of lies and confusion.

Limbaugh is right.  Obama always pretends that he isn't part of his own administration and everything is such a surprise to him.  What's worse is the low info voters buy it.

Exactly. That point cannot be overemphasized. Without the media's help, this little cub scout would have been sent packing back to the Chicago 'hood long ago. What a douchebag. He'll go down in the history of the lexicon for adding new dimensions to the word "loser."
