LA Times Compares Obama IQ To Characters Portayed In Woody Allen Films


Lord Byron, Erotic Image For The Hopeless Romantic

The word sycophant (A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people.) has, for the first time in history, become part of everyday conversation since the election of President Obama. You might legitimately ask why or how did this fairly obscure word become so prominent in our language. The answer lies in the blatant and continuous servile fawning over Obama by our Main Stream Media and their reliance on the Joseph Goebbels school of propaganda:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Joseph Goebbels

Fortunately, lucid Americans see the parody of the lies concerning Obama and his 'hard to define or locate intellect'; consequently, Americans are no longer clamoring for the appeal of the Twenty Second Amendment, those days are over. The truth about the inability of this president to correlate two different thoughts in a coherent sentence or paragraph is painfully obvious.

Our president with his ever present tele-prompters and his verbal stumbling when speaking extemporaneously has led the average person to become skeptical. After all, the teleprompter speeches are nothing more than repeating someone else's writing: while his spontaneity in ad lib speaking comes off more like the fart, stumble, fall, school of communication. Thus Americans have come to accept the fact that our Commander in Chief as “bumblingly inarticulate”; especially, when he is without his closest friend, the teleprompter. It's a deficit we can live with, but the question lingers, is this man as smart as the press portrayed him during the campaign? It wouldn't be an issue, except the state directed media made such a major deal of his intelligence; a man who holds his college transcripts so tight to his chest.

For two and a half years, we have waited for some sign of this brilliance to help in our economy, in our unemployment, in our energy policy, in our foreign policy, and in our wars, we are still waiting; actually, the American people have given up on this superior intellect so highly praised by our media, after waiting two and a half years for just a faint glimmer only the sycophants and some hopeless Useful Idiots are still carrying this less than dubious brilliancy banner.

MEGHAN DAUM, a reporter for the LA Times, has once again tried to promote this lost and forgotten cause or at least has decided to give the dead jackass another sound thrashing, by creative use of weak metaphors. In the true wide eyed form of the typical Useful Idiot that caused Stalin the only laughter in his life that we know of, she explains Obama's apparent speech impediment without a teleprompter as a true sign of genius. Have patience, the Times actually gives her column space for this lunacy.

Admittedly, the president is given to a lot of pauses, “uhs” and sputtering starts to his sentences. As polished as he often is before large crowds (where the adjective “soaring” is often applied to his speeches), his impromptu speaking frequently calls to mind a doctoral candidate delivering a wobbly dissertation defense.

But consider this: It's not that Obama can't speak clearly. It's that he employs the intellectual stammer. Not to be confused with a stutter, which the president decidedly does not have, the intellectual stammer signals a brain that is moving so fast that the mouth can't keep up. The stammer is commonly found among university professors, characters in Woody Allen movies and public thinkers of the sort that might appear on C-SPAN but not CNN. If you're a member or a fan of that subset, chances are the president's stammer doesn't bother you; in fact, you might even love him for it (he sounds just like your grad school roommate, especially when he drank too much Scotch and attempted to expound on the Hegelian dialectic!).

So the president's inability to speak fluently without a tele-prompter and sounding like a drunk, according to Ms Daum, is a direct result of intellectual stammering, not to be confused with the more common stuttering that afflicts many mere mortals. Woody Allen, the man who married his daughter, portrays this genius in comedic form and that should help those of us that aren't sycophants believe the lie. Well done, Ms Daum, your lies are so preposterous that people may be hesitant to laugh at them.

Still fawning over her messiah, she mentions William F Buckley in comparison and figures Obama would be considered brilliant beside Buckley, but there are many of us who would have loved to see the wit and intellect of Buckley in debate with the great stammerer. She mentions Buckley's unsuccessful run for mayor and being asked what he would have done if he had won and he replied, “Demand a recount.” We are left to compare that to the moat with alligators wit of Obama.

Still Ms Daum meanders on without a point of view, besides shameless fawning, in a pointless unknown forest of confusion that is unashamedly promoted as journalism.

Obama's problem is not that he's an intellectual (for the sake of argument let's define it as someone who is scholarly, broadly informed and distinguished as a thinker). It's that he sounds like an intellectual. Unlike other presumed political brainiacs — Bill Clinton or Newt Gingrich, for example — he isn't able to bury his ideas behind a folksy regional accent or good-old-boy affectations when he wants to. Nor is he effective at “keeping it real” when he falls into traditionally African American cadences that he clearly never used when he was growing up.

By speaking as though he hails from everywhere, he ends up being from nowhere. The result is that people look at him and see not a Hawaiian or a Chicagoan or even a black man, but a university man.

Towards the end of this utterly useless diatribe, we realize that Ms Daum probably suffered from a lack of attention from the dream boats on campus and she is still lost in the romantic dreaming of the perpetually frustrated or love starved adolescent. It was worth a few laughs, but on a more serious note it is good to remind ourselves of the depths that the Progressive press is willing to resort to in order to keep their failing messiah and his fart stumble fall oratory from being dismissed as a dim bulb.

Here is an example of one of Lord Byron's adulterous affairs that still has hopeless romantic women panting in frustration

But such passion never lasts. Byron was a victim of his own contradictory personality – he loved to pursue women but, once captured, he longed to leave them. Paradoxically, he could not rest easy without their complete adoration. He could not be simply Caroline's lover, a participant in a scandalous (but tolerated) affair; he must be her grand passion, her true love – she must belong to him alone. But once she capitulated, he grew bored and irritated with her.

Though Caroline was instantly infatuated, she at first refused Byron's most heated demands. She would not admit she loved him more than her husband William; Byron told her, 'My God, you shall pay for this, I'll wring that obstinate little heart.' But soon she loved him enough to contemplate leaving her husband, at Byron's suggestion in May 1812. He was probably testing her commitment for it is unlikely he meant to flee England with her. But he needed to know she loved him more than anything, even her very comfortable life, and so he hinted at 'elopement.' His friends, particularly the sensible John Hobhouse, were already shocked by the affair; it had grown increasingly open and hysterical. Byron was eventually persuaded to leave London.

His poem of the type that titillates the frustrated romantic female.

To his mistress, one of many, Lady Caroline Lamb

Remember thee! remember thee!
Till Lethe quench life's burning stream
Remorse and shame shall cling to thee,
And haunt thee like a feverish dream!

Remember thee! Aye, doubt it not.
Thy husband too shall think of thee:
By neither shalt thou be forgot,
Thou false to him, thou fiend to me!

For the hopeless romantic or the fawning Obama sycophant these lines are the stuff of legend: the rest of us can appreciate them in context as endearing verse.

A tip of my Western hat to Nan G for pointing out the LA Times article.

The stammer is commonly found among university professors, characters in Woody Allen movies and public thinkers of the sort that might appear on C-SPAN but not CNN.

I have never found any Woody Allen movie to be all that brilliant, nor the characters contained therein. And university professors? Really? I’ve found many of them to be boring, slobbish idiots, who cannot comprehend what it would mean to hold a job that actually produces anything of substance.

In effect, this person has compared Obama to people I would choose NOT to associate with, if given a choice.

A new word should be coined for Obama’s non-teleprompter speaking style. I suggest “ex-stammer-raneous.”

Oh, but this story has just inspired me to write a Sonnet for all those Romantic Obotski!!! I guess I will have to write a Internet Article to go along with it later:

I Am Thy Fool
by Squeeky Fromm

How do I worship thy One-derfulness?
Shall I measure slobber by the barrel,
Or celebrate thy Blessed Birth in carol
Circulated free by the Main Stream Press?

Or shall I be discreet, and not confess
Nor speak of this great love and never tell?
Hiding away Love’s risque apparel
As if it were but some stain-ed blue dress.

Yet, when every momentary stutter
Or pregnant pause is cause for happiness,
Must I draw the shades and close the shutter?

There, in Dark, lest thrill’d legs and lips a-drool
Proclaim, in involuntary mutter
For all the world to know. . . I am thy Fool.

Ms. Daum, “his brilliance is blinding, his oratating is intellectually superior, his diplomatic skills are beyond question, his social skills and grace rival the most elite, he has fulfilled our wildest expectations and I am, sad to say, a complete prog tool”.

@Skookum: Oh, thank you!!! This is a great website. I am going to put it on my blogroll thingy and start checking it out daily. That was a wonderfully hilarious and witty Internet Article you wrote!!!

Imagine my surprise when I found out I was just dead wrong in thinking Obama was an inarticulate fraud and intellectual poseur. A big thanks to Ms. Daum for setting us all straight. /sarc

So because he knows soooo much, he comes across as if he knows nothing.

Compare to Reagan, he came across as if he were down home, good ol’ boy material, but had a razor wit, and was very intellectual.

Is Obama the negative photo of Reagan?

Using this stammer approach is a common method to overcome a defect. If one were trying to overcome saying “you know” every third word, they might use the stammer technique. So you can try this would be substituting this phrase wherever obama stammers to see what he would have sounded like naturally. And of course this would also tie into the use of a teleprompter whenever he is supposed to be making statements of grand importance to the waiting peons. If one has ever listened to interviews of the winning team after sporting events, you will get the idea of how “you know” kind of sounds idiotic after a very short time.

The second option is that this technique is also used by those who have their head up their backside. Often when people are speaking with their head in that location, when they become confused, they might suck in a great deal of air. With their head in this location, they might get something other than air. Teaching those unfortunates with this head in the backside problem, stammering keeps the crap they are shoving out from seriously overcoming them.

With Barry, either one or two works, probably a combo of both.

I think Obumbles has to keep the truth down tight. His brain MUST think fast to cover up or re-spin all the B/S he’s been dishing out….He’s got to cover his lies, his obvious contradictions…you know the Joe Goebbels theory on propaganda… I think he stumbles because he’s trying to figure [in his head] out which way the b/s and spin is suppose to go… Believe you me, it has nothing to do with the professor intellect, intellectual stammering, or what ever ‘theory’ Ms Daum is trying to shape for our Stammerer in Chief… Please don’t insult OUR intelligence Ms Meghan Daum!

Here’s a video of our ”genius” president chewing gum at the Joplin Memorial Service.
(See it at 37 seconds to the end)

What genius does that?
It is blatant disrespect.
If it is a ”nicotine-replacement gum,” it is not as bad, but supposedly he had quit smoking over a year ago, so it makes no sense.

But consider this: It’s not that Obama can’t speak clearly. It’s that he employs the intellectual stammer.


If that fawning twit is correct, then by that logic she must by extension think Mortimer Snerd was a flipping genius.
