Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They want to hear more Obama, and they can afford his policies.
Obama does not understand the nature of the challenge that oppresses us. He is obstinate in his view of the world. He is not about to learn anything. We have never confronted a world crisis with an ideological numbnuts at the helm.
Hope! We can hope for a “strategy,” or we can hope that things will start looking up in about two-and-a-half years.
From, Obama explains to the very rich, by Scott Johnson.
A group of the very rich paid $15,000 a couple to hear Obama spew monotonous nonsense at them, and they ate it up as if it were the most erudite wisdom. I guess your head would explode if you admitted to yourself that you’ve just paid $15,000 for a load of baloney.

President Obama on Friday said social media and the nightly news are partly to blame for the sense that “the world is falling apart.”
“I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” Obama told a group of donors gathered at a Democratic National Committee barbecue in Purchase, N.Y.
But the president said that current foreign policy crises across the world are not comparable to the challenges the U.S. faced during the Cold War.
Acknowledging “the barbarity” of Islamist militants and Russia “reasserting the notion that might means right,” Obama, though, dismissed the notion that he was facing unprecedented challenges.
“The world’s always been messy … we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” he said, according to a White House pool report.
“If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart,” said Obama.
