Margaret Carlson: Is the President's Intellect Finally Engaged By the Catastrophe of Obamacare?

She begins with that Valerie Jarrett quote about Obama that I keep referencing, and then asks (rather sarcastically) if the "intellectually restless" Obama has finally found something that interests him.

Two statements explain the huge failure of Obamacare. One is by President Barack Obama, the other is about him.

The first was made in St. Paul, Minnesota, at the end of the 2008 primary campaign, when candidate Obama predicted that generations would look back and see his nomination as “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Couple this with the assessment of his closest aide, Valerie Jarrett, about his exceptionalism. “He knows exactly how smart he is,” she told Obama biographer David Remnick. “And he knows that he has the ability -- the extraordinary, uncanny ability -- to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them.”

Obama “has never really been challenged intellectually,” she went on. “He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Or what an ordinary president does, for that matter. A chief executive less bored than Obama would have stayed on top of his signature legislation.

Sometimes commenters get on me about why I'm not defending this or that Republican's dumb statement. Well, because I have an ego. I do not wish to think of myself as some reflexive Talking Points Robot who is ready, willing, and eager to engage in any spin, no matter how preposterous, to protect the all-important team.

Well, other people are like that too. And the Liberal Chattering Classes are facing a question now: "Will my reputation and sense of pride survive Obama's incompetence?"

And: "How absurd am I willing to make myself in order to cover up for this arrogant buffoon's incompetence?"

Some people may begin to peel off -- not because they're not in-the-tank partisan shills, mind you, but because they're in-the-tank partisan shills who still have some functioning sense of self-respect left in them.

They are beginning to realize that loving Obama means, in the end, hating yourself. You have to sacrifice everything for him -- your honesty, your integrity, your autonomy. Your reputation, your legacy, your pride.

His incompetence and deceit are at such a level that he will not permit you to support him and retain a shred of self-respect for yourself.

Devotion to Obama requires destruction of the self. Obama is a jealous Messiah, and will not permit you to love anything else -- even yourself.

That may be too much for some worshippers to bear. Some worshippers may only be willing to worship casually -- Cafeteria Cultists, if you will -- and will not be able to muster the full commitment to the Obama Cult that the more senior acolytes demand.

And such people will then become apostates.

And the other cultists will shun them, declaring: "Obama asked nothing of you, except for one thing: that you love him and nothing else, and that you obey his every command as if it were the Voice of God Himself commanding you."

9 Speaking of Valerie Jarrett -- I waved at her as she whizzed right by me the other day in SF.

Here's what I wrote about the encounter:

http://pjmedia.com/zombie/2013/11/26/obama-be-a-dictator/?singlepage=true

"And then once again, here came Obama in the same motorcade. This time, however, there was no one else around, so I got a better video of the passing vehicles: [video]

I didn’t glimpse Obama himself, but I did clearly see the “shadow president” Valerie Jarrett in the back of the second “Presidential Limousine” (there are always at least one, and sometimes as many as three, “official”-seeming dummy limousines in any presidential motorcade). Obama must therefore have been in that same limousine with her; a figure can be seen dimly in the seat next to her, which must have been him. She’s visible at 0:32 in the video. (I later confirmed it was her after seeing news reports showing her deplaning from Air Force One earlier in the day with the same hairdo and same collar.)

If you aren’t able to freeze the video at the exact moment, here are a couple freeze-frames of the shadow president and the shadowy president next to her.

The presidents then turned the corner into the billionaire’s home, and were gone."

11 Some people are only interested in building, and others in wrecking. I think the question isn't what could hold Obama's interest to get him engaged in building something or fixing something. His only purpse is to come across a fence, and without pondering its usefulness, to become the champion of its demise.

21 I will admit, after quickly reading the article, that Carlson might have been taking a slap at Barky: one paragraph from Carlson:

" None of this was enough to rouse the intellectually restless president’s attention. After the Oct. 1 rollout, he seemed as surprised as your average citizen that the exchanges weren’t working. He keeps suggesting the failure should be mitigated by the fact that his opponents were wishing for it. It took him six weeks to apologize, he still hasn’t held anyone responsible, and not one head has rolled. One reason he could say that the fiasco was “on him” is that his head can’t roll. "

22 Obama ate in my restaurant the other day and left me this note instead of a tip:

"Your cracka ass is mine, running dog lackey of the capitalist pigs! Now bring me some Hunan chitlin's a'fore I bring down the drones on this shitbox!"

25 Obama “has never really been challenged intellectually,” she went on. “He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Usually, people like this have left a wake of accomplishment behind them, as they move from thing to thing looking for something to challenge them.

It's people with an inflated impression of themselves that don't, since they really aren't the geniuses they believe themselves to be and don't do great things, because they can't.

27 I seem to recall Margaret Carlson, like a lot of her journalists, also turned on Bill Clinton during the last few weeks of his presidency when the whole pardon-gate hit the fan. It was the last straw after Monica, furniture stealing, etc. She got over it.

She'll get over this, too. In fact, I bet Carney is "helping" her see the error of her ways with a screamy phone call.

Every single time I read that drivel, I want to expel my internal organs like a sea cucumber and run away while the Iranian Rat is distracted.


And this is how you know TFG is a world-class narcissist. He doesn't say to himself "This is a brown-noser of the highest order. She wants something from me. What is it?" He thinks to himself "Exactly. Valerie's the only one who really GETS me. Man, she's so intelligent, being able to see the real me like that. I'll give her a high ranking position and let her do my job for me."

Dumbass.

95 Problem is that the liberal "self", their entire identity, is based on feeling smarter and cooler than the rest of us.
And much of that "I'm smarter/cooler than you" stems from obama's WH victories.
It was substantiation for all they've been fed in school, through the media, through hollywood..."rich white patriarchy is bad; people of color social justice will triumph"
It was sweet vindication.
They can't even see that it's fucked up so as to have second thoughts...they're not that intellectually free.
Those that are, STILL can't abandon Teh Won, since they've invested all that they are in him.
They would have to have the courage to admit that they really don't know who they are, and to start life (via their belief systems) over again.

202 Obama “has never really been challenged intellectually,” she went on.
“He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do
what ordinary people do.”

No, I know that one. He's talented, or at least he thinks he is. But it's not that he's too talented to do what ordinary people do, it's that he thinks he's so talented innately that the effort of becoming an expert at anything is too troublesome. He's the sort of expert that comes of reading a single book by a single author on a subject. He knows his issues, sure, but in a superficial, partisan way. It is an article of faith that his beliefs are true, such faith, in fact, that there was never any need to investigate them any more deeply. And, certainly, ordinary things, the mundane, drab, ordinary things, once he sees the surface of it the that is enough. Looking more deeply, asking why, spending time reading arguments, looking at numbers and graphs, why would you do any of this when you know the TRUTH? It's all so troublesome, time consuming, when there are certainly more enjoyable things to be had.

Obama is talented, but he is also the worst sort of faith healer, who's subordinates find people in the crowd they placed there, who lay hands upon a man who rises from a wheel chair he never needed to sit in, and when it's all over, when people being to investigate, to question, it all starts unraveling and his minions proclaim the investigators lack FAITH! That what happened was true, and for those whom the end was not so good, it was because their faith was lacking.

As though faith in a man, even a man among men, would change the laws of physics, and the dynamics of the human animal, it's relation to itself, its kind, and its world.

The harm that will befall us from this presidency, will in no small part be because the man that was elected thinks himself too good to become good at anything, except selling himself. Because what does someone become good at? Only the sorts of things they're interested enough to love. And boy, does he love himself.

You: Obama's a dumb rube who only is where he is because of some nefarious 100 year old plot hatched up by so and so and executed by such and such. Jarret is the real power in the White House.

Kos: Bush is a dumb rube who only is where he is because of rich oil barons from TX and his dad got the CIA to make sure he became. He is just a figurehead and nothing more. Cheney is the real power.

I guess failed predictions and losing your ass in the House when you've promised victory is all a part of genius.

263 Mr. Moo Moo, thanks for the ad hominem attack when I was merely asking questions. So here. Are you so dumb that you don't see that with Obama setting precedent by changing law by decree also means that the next Republican president can defund Obamacare by decree?

That shit will hurt, won't it?

265 Oh, so that's the new spin then? Obama (the man who has paid lawyers to hide his college transcripts) is so brilliant that he cannot be bothered with the trivialities of completely transforming our healthcare system? $650 million website are beneath his soaring intellect.

A quick round of 18 suits him far better.

Let me give this another spin. Barack Obama is a slick empty suit whose entire resume prior to becoming POTUS could have been written on the back of a cocktail napkin. He ran no business, managed no government and drafted no significant legislation. He did not even author his own best-selling books nor does he write his own speeches.

Barack Obama is a marionette. He is a talking puppet in a suit. He is the face of this presidency but he is not the President. I do not know who is truly in charge, but it is not Barack Obama. He is just a man of average intelligence with a tremendous knack for making complete bullshit sound reasonable.

He doesn't manipulate them. They love him. They will do anything for him. They are willing servants to their master. They will destroy anyone who challenges him. No effort or brains are required by Barry for that

277 Kaleidoscope, they (R's) lose because they lack two things:
The capacity to lie like the democrats, and a media willing to aid and abet the lying.
Gramsci, Alinsky.
There are obvious examples of individual R liars, but the entire Dem platform relies on being able to sell lies.
Obamacare is the poster child for this, but is only the most recent and most visible.
And it's a complete fucking lie, yes?

Posted by: Uncle Jefe at November 27, 2013 08:08 PM (vsjJ0)

278 Further arguing the troll's point, if Obama is "winning" these confrontations, it's not due to any skill on his part. The GOP does have a maddening habit of looking the other way at Obama's offenses, no matter how egregious.

But what can the GOP really do about it? When they tried the shutdown they were fried just as bad by their own side as by the
Dems/media.

Issa's hearings have led to exactly squat. The IRS just announced that they are going to crack down on the 501 4 c groups again, this time to try to prevent another 2010-style wave. We're supposed to be patient and "win elections". What can be done?

Wow. So clever.

Cuz if you think a 15 year old rape victim should have the right to an abortion, it means you also think every fetus should be aborted, including your own.

Very prescient timing that we're talking about who is stupid. Well timed.
Posted by: Mr. Moo Moo at November 27, 2013 07:31 PM (0LHZx)



You left out the 15 year old victim of incest.

Those 15 year old rape or incest victim is the oldest BS argument in the book, it reeks of cut and paste from DailyKos or Crooks and Liars. If a girl is raped, there are alternatives like the morning after pill, she doesn't need to wait for 5-6 months to get an abortion.

Also, I would think most conservatives would allow for the rape/incest exemption, but there better be a police investigation into that rape or incest since both are felonies. Incest will get you 5+ to life in every state.

280 Dear Ace,

I've been respectful of you tea baggers for far too long. Calling me a scorpion! And a socialist scorpion at that. Are you implying I couldn't make it across the river without stealing your money and stinging you to death? Why, you tea bagger, I could do that with my eyes closed. I challenge you to keep an open mind, and I will ride your back all the way across the river.

Sincerely,

President For Life Barack Obama

I suppose Obama could be a super-genius, and he's just so, so bored with all this presidentin' stuff, because it's just so easy, and it's super frustrating that all the lame-assed conservative types in flyover country are just too dumb to understand and submit to his wonderful plans, and it's just too annoying and frustrating to try and convince these people, so he disengages and leaves the boring stuff to surrogates.
Or, Valerie and Margaret,he could just simply be a dumb-ass. I know that thought would seem shocking to you two, but it is a possibility.
I’m sure there are probably some real examples of highly-intelligent people (even some true geniuses perhaps) underachieving, underperforming and blowing things off simply because they are bored with the tasks at hand, but I’ve often thought that people make claims like this to excuse someone’s poor performance way, way, way too often. Sometimes, people are just incompetent. Sometimes, a dumb-ass is not a bored genius. Sometimes, a dumb-ass is just a dumb-ass.

282 Disagree with this post, as much as it makes sense to the sensible.

Carlson has been a pom pom girl for decades, a Leftist propagandist who is unaware of her role because of the social/psychological/cultural awards she has received, as so often explicated by Ace. She is not very bright, but she has a feral cunning about what is required to be accepted by the governing class. Her body language reeks of high school entitlement, look at her.

The statements you (Ace) cite were there a long time ago, for any person with a minimal ability to analyze to analyze.

You are wrong, Ace, when inferring that some trans-formative thinking has occurred. No one of the Carlson stature will become an apostate. There is no aspect of self-respect involved. These folks are both not very bright and long since given over to totalitarian thinking.

And their reputation will not suffer a mite, as they well "know," by "know" meaning the feral cunning acceptance and obeisance into the governing (Leftist) class.

Even the invincible ignorant are not absolutely ignorant, usually. Sometimes life presents them with the undeniable, as slow as they might be in making an explicit recognition of it.

We are talking about psychology here. And the first thing to understand about psychology is the stubborn inflexibility of it.

To echo Oprah, except to be realistic, only the dying off of Leftists will make any difference.

And the dying off will also require a dying off of the cultural phenomenon so aptly described by Ace many times, the psychological basis of Leftist thought - - epistemic closure and narcissism combined with assorted other character defects.

It was understandable why Americans, low key and good-natured as they are, voted for BO.

But any nod toward reality by a Carlson is a fluke and nothing more.

286 I think this one calls for the application of Occam's Razor - which is more likely, that this guy is so intelligent, wise, perceptive, and experienced that it yields horrible results, or he's not as smart as advertized, has no experience, and little motivation yielding horrible results? Think about it from any perspective - if you had an employee that kept fucking up, would you assume that he's just to smart to be doing the job and promote him?

And when do we actually get to derive our esteem of this man's intelligence (which we've been told about ad nauseum) from his ability to utilize intelligence to achieve desirable (at least to him) ends?

Posted by: Alec Leamas at November 27, 2013 09:58 PM (lh89W)

287 It's called self-preservation not self-respect, if they had self-respect they wouldn't be shills.

Actually in Ms Carlson's case it probably is self respect, she has is the unusual case of a Hillary Clinton backer who dislikes Bill.

295 If we only had a press that would ask, in regard to statements about how the obamanation of desolation is just so intellectual, why he doesn't allow anyone to see his college transcripts...But I suppose the response would be that he had such stellar grades that he doesn't want to make all the bitter clingers look as stupid as they really are. He's kind and caring that way.

Posted by: Havedash at November 28, 2013 07:06 AM (ToMJU)

296 I find the author of this piece to be at best dull. Does he truly believe that Obamacare isn't functioning as designed? That by its failure and raising prices so high that the next solution will be socialized medicine?

Does anyone believe that such an outrage is the result of incompetence? Like foodstamps, obamaphones, the stimulus? Or the economy?


Get real and understand the nature of the threat. It may all ready be too late.
