From Peggy Noonan, and you have to go through the whole 800 words before you come to this:
Commentators like to decry low-information voters—the stupid are picking our leaders. I think the real problem is low-information leaders. They have so little experience of life and have so much faith in magic — in media, in words — that they don’t understand people will get angry at you when you mislead them, and never see you the same way again.
From Instapundit whose entire post reads, “PEGGY NOONAN BEGINNING TO WONDER if Obama’s as smart as he was cracked up to be.” For myself, I don’t think being smart is all that it’s cracked to be either but that’s something else again.
In the meantime, for some further sense of the extent to which the President is a fraud, you should also read Jack Cashill’s latest on How Author Obama Foreshadowed President Obama. If you don’t know this story already, it’s really time you did.
