Perhaps President Obama has spent more time with one of his biggest fans than we have been led to believe. It may go a long way in explaining the strange betrayal of his alleged academic acumen to even his harshest critics who - at least until recently - begrudgingly acknowledged his advertised brilliance, albeit on faith alone, since no actual credentials were ever offered to confirm the belief. He spoke well when prompted, but many learned as early as the campaign trail that he was a dismal orator when circumstances dictated extemporaneous performances.
Since his election Obama has demonstrated even less intellect in policy making and many more people are now - thankfully - wondering what they have wrought. The recent revelation that Obama's mission for his new National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Chief Charles Bolden involves less about space exploration and more on appeasing radical Islam makes one wonder if the President has visited Louis Farrakhan's "Mother Wheel in the Sky" a time or two.
Of course, since Obama has slashed the NASA budget and scrapped much of the space exploration that was planned, it stands to reason that one, he has found a mission for Bolden that is far less expensive and two, he'll no longer have a ride to Farrakhan's fantasy land.
Speaking in June at the American University in Cairo, in an interview with Al Jazeera, Bolden said that Obama wanted him to "help [Muslims] feel good about their historic contribution to science...". The quote in its entirety:
"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering."Out of forty-four presidents in America's history, only a handful have been elected President of the United States directly from the Senate. None of those even come close to the way Obama - with the thinnest of resumes and least time in politics - was whisked into office. And certainly, not even Jimmy Carter could compete with Obama for level of ineptitude.
For a man who was sold to the American electorate as a scholar, it has become painfully obvious - to most, at least - that they have been the victims of false advertising. Perhaps the rest will come around when Obama puts the Treasury Secretary in charge of restoring the self esteem of oil-soaked egrets in the Gulf region. In the meantime, someone needs to be charged with seeking out intelligence in the vacuous expanse of Obama's brain. Sphere: Related Content
