Maybe he is just displaying ignorance about complex matters. A Harvard education does not endue a mind with wisdom, only knowledge. How can one so young lead a world power with such an intricate set of relationships among nations? Does he not have his own biases? Does he even know what they all are?
Someone said it earlier. Obama is a POST TURTLE. What is a post turtle you ask? If you were to come around a corner and spot a turtle sitting there on top of a post, what would you think it is doing there?
It's simple. The turtle is up there not only unable to do much of anything, but also not knowing what to do. Instead,the question should be, who put the turtle on the post in the first place?
