President Obama doesn't have to appear on the television program Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader for us to determine the answer. His actions and decisions on matters that effect the future of the country speak for themselves. Just about everything he has done has been wrong and had the opposite effect on our economy, our position as a world leader and now the security of the nation.
In typical Obama fashion he has again decided to get out of Washington D C when tough questions need to be answered or unpopular decisions from his Administration are about to be released to the media. He has again delayed his decision on whether to send reinforcements to Afghanistan while he spends 9 days running around the world. In Japan he came very close to apologizing again for the U S using the Atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII to end the war. It came out during a televised news conference and if the Japanese Deputy Prime Minister's eyes could speak they might have said, This is not the time or place to reopen old wounds.
At the same news conference Obama answered a question about the decision to try the mastermind of 9/11 and 4 other terrorist in New York instead of Guantanamo Bay by a Military Tribunal. The news was released only after President Obama landed in Japan. Every Constitutional lawyer and scholar agree this is good for the defense but bad for the prosecution of these terrorist. Most of the evidence that could be used to lead to a successful prosecution in a Military Court will not be allowed in Federal Court. The trials will last for months if not years and too much information of methods and procedures involving National Security and the way we gather information will be given to the very terrorist we are trying to stop.
I may be wrong but I think a fifth grader would be smarter than this President. Think about it, if a thief told you I'm going to break into your home while you're gone but I don't know the best way to get in without getting caught. Would you give him a diagram of your home and all of the security measures and techniques you have installed to prevent his breaking in, of course not. So why has the President decided to take a chance of letting these terrorist escape justice or give Al Qaeda and other terrorist some of our most sensitive information on measures and techniques for fighting terrorism, a 5th grader would be smarter.
President Obama is having a hard time understanding why some of his supporters and most Independents that voted for him are experiencing buyer's remorse. This is being reflected in his job approval rating and his popular rating. People are beginning to see the mistake they made by not taking in the fact that this President had no experience in leadership and had never made a decision that had a significant effect on a large number of people. He had zero experience with the military, National Security matters, or foreign diplomacy. Other than reading books he had never been responsible for budgetary matters involving large sums of taxpayer dollars. Most important he had never been put into a situation that could have life changing consequences for the people that trusted him. Most significant for Independents, President Obama has shown himself to be too far left and possibly leading us into a Socialist style government. All of these facts were brought out during the campaigns but they were all overlooked or dismissed due to his gift for charming a crowd and his Hollywood showmanship.
These are only a few reasons why voters are experiencing buyers remorse and shows without a doubt this President is not smarter than a 5th grader. It doesn't take a smart child to manipulate his parents and it doesn't take a smart con to manipulate a crowd. I am certain while he is running around the world the next few days he will supply more evidence to support our findings.
