Recently a lovely young woman asked President Obama as simple question while he was visiting the St. Xaviers College in Mumbai. The question was simply, “What is your opinion of jihad.”
What dribbled, haltingly and painfully to listen to, out of Obama’s mouth in response bore little or nothing in common with an answer to her question and left all the listeners scratching their heads and wondering what it was that he actually said.
A Simple Question Gets A “WTF Did He Say?” Obama Answer
There were a host of simple ways that the young lady’s question could have been answered, many of which would have even showcased Obama’s understanding of Islam and would have been supportive of “Moderate” Muslims. Instead, Obama went off into some world that only he can see – again.
This isn’t really Obama’s fault; he can’t help himself. The fault was his handlers’ who, this time, failed to plant enough shills in the audience to get Obama through a teleprompter-free engagement.
Liberals used to crow and swoon over finally having an “articulate” POTUS after eight years of President’s Bush’s simple and blunt phrasings but, while nobody would deny that President Obama is a gifted orator, he has consistently failed to be able to function without a prepared script and to clearly and effectively answer even the simplest of questions.
Obama holds a juris doctorate from Harvard University! How in the Gods’ names did he ever manage to defend his thesis or dissertation? Affirmative Action would only take him so far.
That’s not something that could be honestly said against Bush. Leftists and America’s foreign enemies and detractors might not have liked his answers but he could and did clearly give answers to questions posed him.
