Broder: Obama's w-a-a-a-a-y smarter than I am

The gentle art of teabagging is not dead.

And thank the God(ess)(e)(s) Of Your Choice, If Any, that Broder isn't being forced to sniff that woman's panties anymore. That was getting embarrassing.

A cool, pragmatic, and beautiful mind. Sounds like a good guy! But, more seriously, one of the few things I do like about Obama is that he seems to be genuinely curious about the world, and that is a refreshing sign of intelligence. The lack of global curiosity before he got into the presidency was something that always bugged my about Bush, and more recently, Governor Palin.

That said, Broder ranks very high up for the job of Secretary of Ass Kissing. Him in Joe Klein. If there is nothing I can't stand, these day, it's these conservatives who are temporarily in love with the Democratic Party and president-elect, and who feel that it's appropriate for them to tell us (Democrats/Democratic sympathizers) how to run the party. They are to be trusted with nothing.

Jimmy Carter was a whiz at policy analysis and Bill Clinton grasped the connections among issues almost intuitively. Yet neither of them left the White House with a record of great achievements.

Broder is a rare bozo. The dean of bozos, in fact. Also known as a total putz.

I’ll let Jimmy speak for himself, and admittedly his greatest achievements came post his presidency. But Bill? The longest period of peace-time economic expansion in American history, a balanced budget, and a federal surplus of $559 billion. As we all now so poignantly appreciate, that was a phenomenal achievement. But I guess bozo missed that, being in Washington and all.

Do you think bozo Broder noticed the 24 million new jobs created under the Clinton-Gore Administration? An average of 240,000 jobs per month, 92% in the private sector –the highest of any President on record. Broder’s bozo buddy GW’s administration (oh, Bozo never really liked him much ... once his job approval fell below 23%) has the worst overall job creation record since Herbert Hoover. Bozo’s god, Reagan, only created 167K per month.

African American and Hispanic unemployment rates the lowest on record; the most rapid growth in construction jobs in 50 years, inflation the lowest since the 1960s, the fastest and longest real wage growth in over three decades. Nope, move along, nothing to see here.

His 65% Gallup Poll approval rating was the highest Gallup approval rating ever, of any President leaving office. The Dow rose from under 3,000 to almost 12,000 during his administration (8 years later it is now fallen below 9,000). But I guess not enough American soldiers died and not enough was spent on military equipment, munitions, and private armies to satisfy bozo Broder's criteria of greatness.

Peace and prosperity (for all) is so over-rated. But not nearly as much as is eminent gasbag bozo Broder.

Bill Genius IQ Rhodes Scholar Clinton "came in here and he trashed the place"?

Yet the Master of Mediocrity rates this kind of fulsome B.S. from Broder??
