HIS fans in the media, which is to say the majority, touted Barack Obama as the most intelligent man to run for president. If he is, when is President Obama going to start showing his brain power?
Four years after the recession officially ended, unemployment remains far higher than it did going in.
This comes despite — maybe because of — a nearly trillion-dollar stimulus in 2009 and 2010, followed by smaller stipends in 2011 and 2012.
Foreign policy is a disaster.
The "smart diplomacy" has been one dumb move after another as apparently none of the Ivy Leaguers in the White House ever heard of David Halberstam whose 1972 book, "The Best and the Brightest," chronicled how the Ivy Leaguers in the Kennedy administration created the Vietnam War.
For decades, the United States dominated the Middle East despite its support of Israel.
Under President Obama, the Muslim Brotherhood and Vlad Putin run the show.
Obama has even turned off Saudi Arabia, who has been a trusted if despotic ally since Herbert Hoover was president.
To be sure, Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden, but in the process, they had to blow up a stealth helicopter, whose parts are now the property of China.
The doctor who fingered bin Laden did not get the $50 million reward that President Bush promised. Instead, the doctor sits in prison in Pakistan for his deed.
Congress is now investigating how 22 members of Team 6 died in a helicopter crash three months after the raid.
Then there is spying.
Under President Bush, America's spies gathered secrets post-9/11 to better protect the nation.
Under Obama, computer techs are exposing that secret spying to the world.
Of course we spied on German Chancellor Angela Merkel. We spied on Winston Churchill in World War II and our allies spy on us, too.
