"Obama's the one who never worked a day in his life," Ailes said in Zev Chafets' book "Roger Ailes: Off Camera." "He never earned a penny that wasn't public money. How many fundraisers does he attend every week? How often does he play basketball and golf? I wish I had that kind of time. He's lazy, but the media won't report that."

so lets take a moment here and follow this thought.  For the sake of argument, lets assume this is a true statement - Obama is lazy, stupid and easily distracted.  But we know he got re-elected to office and beat Romney.  stop and consider what the Republicans are saying here: a lazy, unfocused stupid black man managed to beat Mitt Romney in a landslide election.  that means the GOP is saying Romney is WORSE than Obama.  I mean that's the only conclusion you can come too - if Obama is lazy and stupid but wins, then the guy he beat MUST be even more lazy and stupid.  If Romney was any good at all, he'd have won.

"When I see another former governor after the president's first debate where he didn't do very well, says that the president was lazy. He didn't say he was slow. He was tired. He didn't do well. He said he was lazy. Now, it may not mean anything to most Americans, but to those of us who are African Americans, the second word is shiftless and then there's a third word that goes along with that."

oh I think he's pissed.  not just him either - a lot of the GOP insiders/elites are extremely angry that Obama got re-elected.  the icing on the cake is that they can't bring themselves to admit that Obama won because the GOP was so f*cking stupid about the entire election.  Obama isn't the greatest guy to ever run for office.  sure, he's smart.  he's organized.  he knows what he wants to accomplish and can figure out a way to get there.  But he's not a super genius or anything.  And he's got several weaknesses, some of which are quite glaringly obvious.  But stack Obama up against the likes of Mitt Romney and suddenly Obama looks godlike.  that's what the voters saw, and that's why Obama won in a landslide.


There's also the fact that Obama is clearly a master-level troll. That has a lot of appeal in the Internet age. There's something to be said for a man who can bring the lulz at the expense of his political opponents and look Presidential the whole time. I wish we had someone with a comparable sense of biting humor on the political scene up here in Canada.

Mistymtnhop: Philip Francis Queeg: Mistymtnhop: Have we ever had a "Super-genuis"president?

Jefferson, maybe? Of course his genius didn't stop him from being a truly lousy President.

Okay, Jefferson. I can agree with that one. Although, I'm not too bright apparently, I was trying to remember if he was second or third president. So I decided to Google him, but I can't think of his first name, so I say to my husband and 14 year old daughter, "President Jefferson, what was his first name, George, right?" My daughter just looks at me and sighs "Thomas." That JUST happened after I read your comment.

/still having my coffee, my only excuse.


Well in your defense, both George Jefferson and Thomas Jefferson did love them some black ladies.

Super-genuis? Have we ever had a "Super-genuis"president? Obama is extremely smart, organized and super-likable. All of those things. But Super-genuis isn't a thing when it comes to American Politics. Organization is the primary key to conducting government. That's what matters. The genius is in the organization. Obama has it. The GOP does not.

And by "credibility" you mean "dog whistle racist."

"Black people only voted for Obama because he was black and they're all on welfare and he'd increase welfare payments."
"White people only voted for Obama because they were scared someone might think they were racist."

Community organized and a lawyer are also all public money.


So are soldiers and police and firefighters. Guess those are just sucking off the government teat...

Again: NEVER had a job in the private sector, yet quietly ignoring the public sector jobs that he held, while doing work in the public sector as well.

So he's singlehandedly the most dastardly Supervillain that the nation has ever faced, while being lazy and shiftless. Though, I guess if you have access to a time machine, even the lazy can get some stuff done.

But the GOP has already decided that Mitt Romney was the wrong candidate - not conservative enough. Just like he was the wrong guy during the primaries. It was only between Mitt's clinching the nomination and the election that he was the Ultimate Champion of Reagan's Legacy and Conservative Values. The minute after that: under-the-bus time.
