Barack : A jack of all trades

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | People who can do a lot of things effectively at the same time are rare and far between. Bo Jackson, Federal Judge Duane Benton and Deon Sanders come to mind. We all know about the multi sports and talents Jackson and Sanders had.

Judge Benton comes to mind as an adequate comparison to our amazingly talented President.

Man with many hats has no time to hang head

I was assigned to introduce Duane at a political conference about fifteen years ago along with now deceased Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan. Upon receiving their resumes, I realized that I would have to cut out 75% of Duane's and add that same 75% to the Governor's.

Duane was a lawyer, CPA, Phi Beta Kappa, Vietnam Vet, Yale Law Review, Naval Reservist. He was campaign manager for Mel Blunt's House campaign, an MBA and Summa Cum Laude. Duane earned degrees from Northwestern, Yale, Memphis State and the University of Virginia, college law professor, Navy Judge Advocate, Director of the MO Department of Revenue, MO circuit judge, MO Supreme Court Judge, Chief Judge of the MO Supreme Court, Federal Appellate Judge, appointed by President George W. Bush.

As I rattled off his accomplishments parodying a Bo Jackson commercial: "Duane knows law, Duane knows, politics, Duane knows military…," I pointed out the longest job Duane had ever held was the six years he had been when he served as my attorney. Benton rudely interrupting, yelled, "Weinbaum, I would still be your lawyer if you'd only paid me." Shocked by his impertinence, I replied, "And I WOULD have paid you if you'd ever won a case…"

Unlike Benton, our president seems to be practicing in a lot of areas he has no or little experience at.

Positive before the negative, here are President Overreach's main self-attributes:

  • He's persistent.

  • He's a charismatic speaker to those who believe in him.

  • He's an excellent fundraiser.

  • He's good looking.

  • He can sing-at least imitate---

  • He likes sports.

  • He can community organize with the best of the Marxists.

  • Seems to be a good husband and father.

Here are his negatives:

  • He lies beyond what any politician I've known of — even Bubba-not the Masters Champ.

  • He believes this country was based on false premises and sees it as his mission to overthrow it.

  • He's a race baiter, looking for any way to get his black base energized. Cue Reverend Wright!

  • He encourages people NOT to get jobs by extending welfare beyond a safety net and into entitlement.

  • He's not interested in bringing people up. He wants everyone down—and dependent on him for handouts.

  • He's an outright enemy of Israel for betraying their plans to their and the USA's enemy, Iran.

  • He's helped overthrow Islamic countries and today is meeting with the replacement governments, our and Israel's dire enemy, the Muslim Brotherhood -- in the White House.

  • He knows more than the 555 members of Congress - combined!

  • He knows more than the Supreme Court.

  • He's not only an abortionist—he favors and has stood up for infanticide.

  • He's a self-proclaimed expert on green energy.

  • He thinks Joe Biden is smart.

  • He can't govern and has no desire to.

  • He knows more about health care than the collective knowledge of all the MDs in America.

In a cluster of faults, (racist and abortionist), Obama pointed out that if he had a son, he would have looked like Trayvon Martin, The 17-year old black killed by George Zimmerman.

That depends on how many children Barack and Michelle planned. The same would hold true for a pregnancy from his daughters. Obama as quoted: "I wouldn't want Sasha or Malia punished with a baby." The likelihood of Treyvon surviving til birth would be unlikely in these scenarios. In my opinion, that should be a hate crime: profiling of a minority, a baby. It could have its own acronym: KLU (as in without one) — Killed While Laying in the Uterus.

Further, one wonders what will happen if Obamacare is derailed by the Supremes. Will El Presidente, Obama start a power battle to overthrow the Supremes, in effect making him the tenth and Chief Justice?

You better believe, if he thought he could get away with it, Barack Hussein Obama would assume Congressional and judicial power as fast as you can say, "unconstitutional!"

President Obama, I know Judge Duane Benton. Judge Benton is a friend of mine. You are no Judge Benton!
