“I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. . . . He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. 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, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. . . . So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. . . . He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”
Obama’s Valerie Jarrett: Often Whispered about, But Never Challenged | National Review Online
Yes, most ordinary bitter people who cling to guns and religion don’t wrack up $17 trillion worth of debt, finance dozens of failed green energy companies, lie every time they open their mouth, run the world’s worst and most expensive web site, or destroy a nearly infinite reservoir of goodwill in just five years.
Wow – for a moment there, I thought I was reading a critique of Adolf Hitler by people who knew him:
” He’s been bored to death his whole life. ”
I have been privileged to spend a large amount of time with people who are VERY bright — people with IQs north of 150. One thing I have noticed is that they are seldom if ever bored. The world and its possibilities is just too large for them to be bored.
Yes, but they’re not Muslim. Nor any other kind of brainwashed. It’s the brainwashing that gets old and boring, but a person as terribly smart as Obama can shrug it off, with a small dose of absolute power every day. Bored AND addicted to power, the lady neglected to mention the last part.
Actually, I’ve seen people like Obama before, but mostly in sordid stories of unfulfilled women who married for security, quickly realized their mistake, but could not let go of the security, and so resigned themselves to a kind of universal loathing, a deep depression of the soul, that only constant lying and conniving can satiate, and for only a little while at a time. Yes, that’s it–Obama is an unfulfilled, angry woman (neutered by his parents and the religious fanatics he lived among at too young an age) in a man’s body. And Jarrett is his/her hopeful, worshipful lover, who does not realize she (Jarrett) is a lesbian, in love with the hidden woman screaming (in everything Obama does) to get out of the man.
There was an episode of “Star Trek” (the original series) like this. The woman got hold of a machine that allowed her to change bodies with Captain Kirk (who had “spurned” her, early in his fabulous career)… I recommend everyone find and study that episode, and imagine Obama as the “spurned” woman.
Exactly, and few of them are so bored they regularly get stoned smoking dope.
Lucifer was pretty remarkable too and had a very high opinion of himself. It ended badly.
Not challenged intellectually?
Looking at the mess that he has created and utter nonsense that he tells about it, intellectually challenged comes to mind.
Obungo has average intelligence. But it’s quite remarkable that Jarrett and others actually believe he’s something remarkable. I suspect there’s a reason for that. We don’t know who he is. It only seems certain that he isn’t who he says he is. But he has a following who think of him as a sort of Demi-God.
There are kids from Hawaii who say he used to claim he was a middle eastern Prince. His Pakistani boyfriend used to marvel that he had completed a 2 year tech degree as tho it were a Phd in Nuclear physics. He’s a mutt, but many of his followers seem to think he’s royalty. Gotta wonder why.
Yes, it must be hard to be Barry. To be too stupid for words and those around him think every word is gold. Wow. What an incestuous group of mental midgets. Just imagine someone who thinks this gay, arrogant, sociopath is the new messiah. They shoot horses don’t they?
She must be joking, right?
Has she ever watch Peter Sellers’ last film – Being There, because this administration has much in common with that story.
Give me a fucking break. She must be the dumbest woman on the face of the planet to spew such nonsense.
Given the very simplistic ideas these guys come up with, I’m inclined to believe she’s full of it. Unless she means he just phones it in.
Oh, let’s just spend close to a trillion dollars on random crap and that’ll create jobs. Let’s tell Iran that we’ll extend a hand and then they’ll be nice to us. Let’s give a speech in Cairo to Muslims, and then they’ll stop trying to kill Americans. Let’s throw a lot of money at green technology and that will magically spur technological leaps even though the Germans have been trying for years longer.
Let’s force people to buy health insurance and even though we’ll mandate all kinds of crap like maternity coverage for men, it’ll magically cost families $2,500 less.
Can you intellectually challenge a turnip?
It must be very boring not to be able to decide who can live and who must die. Absolute power must be thrilling experience for a restless spirit .
Bracky boy is sooo smart, he cannot comprehend basic math saying it’s just too hard. He has closed the I.Q. circle and returned to idiot savant status without the savant.
He probably weighed the three options that required his talents. He doesn’t have the consistency to strike it rich as a televangelist, he knew what they’d do in prison to him if he tried a career as a con man so he opted for the third line of work which combines both, career politician.
This evaluation of Barry is not surprising of the self assessments of intellect from Marxists. Remember the left consistently claims superior intelligence and sees brilliance in Das Capital by Karl Marx that is a 800 page diatribe of mindless prattle with one coherent thought about the value of labor presented over and over again with 3rd grade arithmetic boasted upon as if it is calculus. Their whole level of discussion is limited to areas of subjective topics in which every conclusion is based upon their agreement about what is good or bad with massive derision upon anyone who disagrees and declares that “the emperor has no clothes”.
More of his sons…. and a daughter….busy
Bored? A constant sense of boredom is a sure sign of a sociopath.
