Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.
- Franklin, American Statesman, Printer, Scientist, and Writer (1706-1790)

Back in 2000 and 2004, it was a good thing we had the media to tell us it was Bush who was the dumb guy and Gore and Kerry who were the smarter candidates, especially when you consider the fact that Bush had better grades in college than Gore, and Bush had a higher IQ than Kerry.

Thankfully, we don’t have to worry our pretty heads trying to compare Obama’s college career to Bush’s because Obama has refused to release his college transcript, preferring to keep them sealed for whatever reasons.

So try to keep in mind who the dumb president is and who’s the smart guy as we pull up this classic Obamanism in honor of Cinco de Mayo.

Now it’s a little bit unfair to compare the Spanish-speaking Bush to our current one-language president, but I can’t imagine the “dumb” president ever botching a three word attempt at another language as badly as this:

Imagine the scene just before the press conference . . .

Speech writer: “Hey, we’re a day early? Okay, how about you say, ‘Welcome to Quatro de Mayo,’ can you handle that Mr. President?”

Obama: “Sure.”

At the press conference: “Welcome, uh . . . de Cinco de Quatro?”

Seriously? Welcome “of fifth of fourth?”

It really is a good thing we have the media to tell us who the dumb president is and who’s the smart guy.

More importantly, thank goodness that the very same media that would have played up this gaffe a thousand times if Bush had made it, quietly buries the blunder when Obama makes it, otherwise, we might get really confused as to who the smart guy was and who the stupid guy really is.

  • You can dislike Obama all you like, but he isn’t stupid.

  • Stupid is what stupid does! OBAMA is what he does….

  • Powerful insight. Thanks Forrest.

  • “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.” – Barack Obama, “The Audacity of Hope.”

    Voting for a blank screen is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get until he starts the job.

    Whoops, that’s not the CHANGE we were HOPING for!

  • We’re told how smart he is, but we have to accept that based on what? That he went to some prestigious universities? OK, how well did he do at those universities? We don’t know do we? Why? Because the President is hiding something. Either he was a doltish affirmative action darling, a full blown no holds barred Stalinist, or he got funding for his education as a foreign national. Maybe there’s some other reason why he would hide his college work and records, but I can’t think of one.

    • Seriously, what is Mr. Obama trying to hide from America by keeping his college transcript sealed? You name the only three scenarios that could possibly make sense, embarrassingly poor grades, proof that Obama was a straight Commie or proof he received financial aid as a foreign student.
