Clarence, Barack, Clarence, Barack…. Clarence! part two

Continuing to point out the surpassing silliness of Obama criticizing Thomas’ preparation to be on the Supreme Court, the commentary swells.

Obama is such a rookie. Does he think about the responses that people are likely to make to his assertions? His ability to “look ahead” and consider possible objections, and employ some foresight in how he makes his points, seems severely restricted.

The Clarence Thomas comment is classic Obama. How could it not occur to him in advance that whatever accusations he makes of inexperience on Thomas’ part would also apply to Obama?

Answer: messiahs are always young, so normal standards don’t apply. I think he genuinely believes himself to be in a different category. He is captive to his own press releases and self-image, and it blinds him to the obvious until the words have already left his mouth.
