"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

Barack Obama is becoming a man alone with his self aggrandized vision of greatness that people around him have nurtured since he was a child.
ObamaCare is a daily reminder of the old adage that "Pride goeth before the fall".   In a column this week George Will referenced David Remick's worshipful biography entitled“The Bridge:The Life and Rise of  Barack Obama.”  On  page 274, Remick quotes Obama's gate keeper Valarie Jarrett about Obama and then Will opines as to her description of Obama.  Jarrett said: 
"I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is...He knows how perceptive hs 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 he has never been really challenged intellectually. I mean, he's the kind of guy you'd hate in law school, who would pick up the book the night before the final, read it, and ace the test. So what I sensed in him was not just a  restless spirit but someone with extraordinary talents that they had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy."
Will then added: "Leave aside the question of whether someone so smitten can be in any meaningful sense an adviser. About what can such a paragon as Obama need advice?"

In point of fact Barack Obama has rarely if ever been challenged about his ideas, policies or programs.  His life while at times strange, has largely been one of accommodation and not conflict.  He has glided through his career  because of his "amazingness".   He has eluded criticism because of his "uniqueness".  He has been hyped and won election twice as a new kind of leader for the new millennium. 
And then there's this from EAG News;
"A Common Core kid’s book teaches 3rd graders that Barack Obama is honest, kind, fair and godlike...On the heels of a controversial children’s book about Barack Obama – which stated “white voters would never vote for a black president” and that “Barack’s former pastor” said “God would damn the United States for mistreating its black citizens” – comes a new lesson that casts America’s 44th president in a messianic light. Literally...And – surprise – it’s Common Core-aligned. 
The lesson plan and accompanying visual presentation were authored by Sherece Bennett, and is for sale onTeachersPayTeachers.com.

 It’s all based on a book titled, “Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope,” by Nikki Grimes.  In one passage, a young Obama sees beggars and wonders, “Will I ever be able to help people like these?”  “Hope hung deep inside of him,” the book adds. Another excerpt from the book reads: “Before dawn each morning, Barry rose – his mother’s voice driving him from dream land. ‘Time for learning English grammar and the Golden Rule. Be honest, be kind, be fair,’ she taught him.” ".

This adulation of Obama  is unprecedented in American history and incredibly creepy to boot.  It supplies part of the answer as to why his policies have been so disengenuous, misguided, un-American and destructive to the nation.

Obama and his acolytes believe that the act of thinking about a problem privately followed by the act of articulating those thoughts publicly and being applauded for doing so by either a backdrop of grinning drones or an adoring media is the same as solving the problem.  When reality steps in and the the problem grows worse, the default reaction for this President is to deny knowledge and responsibility while blaming the growing debacle on others and in particular his political enemies.
At a private Democratic fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Calif., Obama again lauded himself  and Democratic leaders for surpassing the likes of Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt,

in a text of these remarks, released by the White House he said “We have accomplished as much, if not more, than any time in our history."

 Take a moment and think about the myriad domestic and foreign crises and scandals of this Presidency and ask your self which of these were truly ever solved or resolved  and  which were self inflicted to begin with?  Who got blamed for them, who got fired for them and who absolved himself or any one close to him of any responsibility?  And finally who lied about them to the American people at every opportunity?

Overwhelmingly you will find if you look at facts and not feelings that the American public has been harmed over and over for naked ideological and political reasons.  And this brings us to the other side of the Obama analysis.  This President is and has been since a child, a creature of the hard left which has a world view that denies human reality and human history and seeks to replace it with a mythical counter history supposedly based on "the real truth".

The new progressive left like it's Marxist and National Socialist predecessors, believes in a utopia governed by an elite who will exercise total control over all those who are ill informed or outright inferior because of their beliefs.   Privately they hide their true feelings about gender, race and religion because that would compromise their political agenda which seeks to use minorities, women and non-believers as victims for their "Brave New World". 

Barack Obama promised in 2008 that he would bring "Hope and Change".  He failed in the first instance and succeeded in the second. The country is like a punch drunk fighter as they absorb one political blow after another.  Slowly some are realizing that he is a man who preaches the golden rule but practices class, gender and race warfare.  His is the politics of  unmaking the American experience and the American dream.
He is a man who doesn't know what he doesn't know.  But he does know what he believes and he does knows what and who he hates.  His belief in his own greatness and his inability to even understand that there is another point of view that is legitimate which may be contrary to his own, will prove ultimately to be his undoing. 

His is the "Audacity of Narcissism" coupled to  an ideology that believes in the 21st Century version of the creation of the "new Soviet man and woman".  But as we discover who he is and what makes him tick, we stumble upon a bigger story.  It is the story about us...about we the people who were gullible or desperate enough to elect him twice as our President.  It is a story about who we may have become as we surrender our independence for the false safety of the all embracing but ultimately carnivorous  nanny state.
