In September 2008, two months before the presidential election, I began telling friends and associates that candidate Barack Obama was a liar, a fraud and a demagogue
These opinions were formed by thoughtful consideration of his many campaign speeches to that point.
In the intervening four years, nothing has happened to change that assessment, other than to add that hes disassociated (as borne out by his avoidance of a majority of scheduled daily briefings), incapable of responsible governing and extremely dangerous.
These charges and those expressed four years ago have been confirmed by his recent actions and inaction regarding the Benghazi embassy carnage, his rash expansion of entitlements and the welfare state and, among others, his inaccurate assessment of his own failure to create jobs.
The president and his administration are somewhat analogous to a group of nervy 10-year-olds who decided to play government, and agreed to let Obama be president.
Think about it the next time you see or hear him performing without a prepared speech.
