Wow — David Brooks Absolutely Smokes Obama Today In His NYT Column Over The Campaign Finance Decision

This has probably been read by most here already. But it pretty much lays on the table what critics of Obama’s politics of fakery have been saying about him for a while now. Most of this was obvious to those who cared to look a year ago.
The only thing new the campaign has revealed thus far in my view is that Obama is not nearly as smart as was thought to be the case, and his world view has been stunted by his failure to look far beyond the borders of South Side Chicago politics for the last 15 years.
Harvard Law Review Editor?? Big deal — he never published an article.
Constitutional Law Professor?? False — adjunct faculty lecturer who never published a single piece of scholarship on the subject and whose public pronouncements on the topic are laughable to those of us who have spent time studying the issues.
The closing sentences are the best:
He’s the most effectively political creature we’ve seen in decades. Even Bill Clinton wasn’t smart enough to succeed in politics by pretending to renounce politics.
There you have it. The Dems have settled on a nominee with less character and dedication to principle than the King of Triangulation Bill Clinton.
What a party.
