The President Thinks We're Stupid...

President Obama attended a...  wait for it... fundraiser in Los Angeles the other day. Obama addressed Democrat donors at the LA home of Shonda Rhimes, famed creator of TV's "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal."

As usual, President Obama detoured from his own failures the Republican Party, intimating that its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what's true."

Really, Mr. President? As the old saying goes - "It takes one to know one."

Given that Mr. Obama won the award for "Lie of the Year" in 2013, I guess he knows a thing or two about not telling the truth. I guess that's why he is so quick to point out that others are lying - to take some heat off himself.

The President went on, explaining why Americans just don't understand, and maybe don't want to understand, what's going on in the country and the world. Apparently we don't have the adequate thought process to fully understand the intricacies of it all.

“Over time, they start thinking, ‘you know what, all politicians are the same.’ And most folks don’t have the time to sort out all the intricacies of Obamacare or Benghazi, or this or that. They don’t have time for that,” he said. “All they know is it’s not working for them. And so people then pull out and they drop out, and they don’t work. And that further entrenches those who are protecting an unjust status quo.”

It's not that his policies are failing and at least 61% of Americans believe Obama is a liar. It's that they just don't understand, don't want to understand, and that they simply stop caring about it. And we're not intelligent enough (like him) to understand what really happened in Benghazi. After all - we didn't believe the video story - that the eventually had to admit wasn't true in the first place. Stupid us.

Sadly, in the case of low information voters, the President has it right. If the problems in the country and the world don't effect them directly they don't much care about them. They believe whatever they're told by President Obama and will vote to keep him and their other political benefactors in office. And that's a major part of what's wrong with the country today.
