Dwight_Yeast: I would bet money that Obama's kids are smarter than most reporters these days.


I would bet money that Obama's dog is smarter than most reporters these days.

My favorite part of the article:

Q:Have you ever read Ayn Rand?
A: Sure.

Q: What do you think Paul Ryan's obsession with her work would mean if he were vice president?
A: Well, you'd have to ask Paul Ryan what that means to him. Ayn Rand is one of those things that a lot of us, when we were 17 or 18 and feeling misunderstood, we'd pick up.

Pimp slap!

If that's your biggest takeaway from this article, subby, perhaps you should take a class on reading comprehension.

The salesman at the Jaguar dealership who swears that this year's cars are different, and all of those reliability problems are a thing of the past: he's not stupid. He's just betting that you are.

The fact that he makes a living proves that, at least some of the time, he's right.

FTA:

"How old are you?" he asked.

"Eleven."

He gladly obliged.

The older girl had the same request. Obama, however, eyed her with warm parental disapproval. "How old are you?" he asked.

"Fourteen," she replied. The same age as Malia Obama.

"Oh, no," the president said with a broad smile, crouching down to make eye contact. "You're too old to have someone writing on your clothes. Do you understand? That's a nice shirt you have. Take care of it. I'll give you a fist-bump instead."

It was a wonderful moment to witness. This wasn't a president who merely kissed babies for votes. Even though the commotion all around him was louder than a Sousa band, Obama was able to differentiate the ages of the two girls, and then offer the older one a lesson about being a young woman and having self respect."


Are most presidents incapable of differentiating between the ages of two people who just told them what their ages are?

If they are of less than voting age, most politicians see no difference whatsoever. They are simply unimportant.

I really should not have laughed at this.

Sad when Rolling Stone does better research and harder-hitting journalism than the vast majority of magazines and newspapers in the US. But it's been that way for a while.

"This is not an issue of who's team is right, it's about America, it's not about race, but Obama has the soul of a Muslim person, this is about America, and Romney loves America"
