Former Alaska governor and VP candidate Sarah Pailn asks a basic question on her Facebook page today: "Who is running our country?"
Palin writes, "We've got a CIA Director sharing security info with his mistress using an unsecure gmail account. We've got the delusional Susan Rice blaming the death of an ambassador on a Youtube video. We've got Iran firing on one of our drones a week before the election. We've got the White House either ignorant of or covering up all of this."
All of this raises a question: "Who is minding the store?"
Palin continues: "Everywhere we look we see the rank incompetence or corruption of the people who are supposedly running our country and our major institutions. Let's hope that responsible reporters at Obama's press conference today ask the right questions Americans deserve answers to."
Palin concludes with a question to Obama: "As our nation's chief executive you claim to be unaware of the most important and tragic situations we're facing; so, as a former chief executive, I'd like to know how long it takes for your staff to tell you things like: 'Sir, your CIA Director is under investigation'?"
And at what income point -- with His being incomparably rich, transcendentally successful, and the very quintessence of excellence -- should we begin hating Him?
I mean, He does rake in a bit more than $200,000 per year. And it's all tax free.
But is it really only about money?
What about "fairness"? Is that not your real idol and ground of agony?
After all, Mr. Obama and all you true believers in class warfare (RINOs included), is there anything less "fair" than that He is the Creator and we are the creatures?
O, how the idol despises its maker.
A longtime friend of mine asked me the other day, "What's it like to be married to a famous person?"
"You'll have to ask Nancy," I replied.
True believers in Barack Hussein Obama do not question whether the evidence supports certain basic articles of faith, including, let us suggest, the doctrine that the current occupant of the Oval Office possesses an IQ "that is off the charts," as historian Michael Beschloss once infamously, confidently, and blindly proclaimed to Don Imus of radio fame.
When Imus on Nov. 10, 2008, in the context of an interview of effusive praise for Obama, asked Beschloss a followup question, "What is his IQ?," Beschloss at first tried to talk through Imus's question. But Imus persisted and the historian eventually admitted, "I don't know."
Free-thinkers take a more noble path.
Having been endowed by our Creator with "certain unalienable rights" and responsibilities, among them the right and responsibility to question authority, including political authority, regular people are thereby liberated as holistic human beings to ask questions and discover amazing truths.
This kind of critical distance and discovery, despised in certain circles, especially among secularized people of secularized faith, is a key element of representative, Constitutional government. Liberated minds precede free societies.
Victor Volsky at American Thinker maintains such a distance, and he asks a question ("Just how smart is Obama?") that may trouble those who are comforted by, and who place their trust in, Obama. Yes, Barackian sychophants on campus, in Hollywood, in politics, and in the formerly mainstream media may not be pleased with the answer suggested by the evidence.
But those who understand that resistance to foolishness goes to the heart of our calling as Americans and as human beings rejoice.
Here is audio of the Imus-Beschloss interview. The historian's blind, nonsupported but gushing praise of Obama's supposedly high IQ occurs near the end of the interview.
