So Hagel was confirmed for Secretary of Defense, which just confirms that there is no such thing as too dumb to be in Obama’s cabinet. In fact, it almost seems like Obama is purposely surrounding with really stupid people — such as, of course, his vice president. Maybe Obama is really insecure about his intelligence — which makes sense considering he’s never accomplished anything useful his entire life — and thus can’t stand to be around anyone smarter than himself. Hence his inner circle of dimwits.
Then again, maybe Obama is just so stupid he doesn’t know what smart is. That’s certainly true of all the people who think Obama is really intelligent, but maybe it applies to Obama himself.
Anyway, this is why you don’t give the federal government lots of power because inevitably it’s going to end up in the hands of really stupid people. Now we have to ride this out for four more years. Maybe one day we’ll have a government that isn’t an obstacle to prosperity, but I’d never count on it.
