    I watched his press conference live, and it sure seemed to me that the lights have gone out in that once bright speaker. I mean, six years ago, he could talk up a store about everything and anything, even though he never said much in relation to what he addressed.

    Bt yesterday, he appeared tired, worn out and just clueless!

    Is this an act on his behalf, or is he really burned out as the POTUS???

    He was clueless before meeting with Perry.

    Clueless....no not that, but insensitive to the plight of others, political to its extreme....that's more evident. The man really needs Christ and that is what is glaringly evident.

    Rick Perry is as clueless as the President. Rick Perry is the guy who singned into law the perks that draw the illegals to Texas. They get 100,000 dollars of free tax dollars for college, free medical, free schooling for their children, and a free run of the state with little to no concern about being arrested. Then Rick Perry blasmes the president for them coming here, hypocrit.

    Courts decided long before Perry was anywhere around that Local Schools had to provide free education for the children of illegal aliens.

    Illegals have been able to walk into into hospital emergency rooms and get free care for decades, long before Perry was anywhere around.

    You did make one allegation that has some teeth to it. He did recently make some of those kids eligible for state resident rates at colleges. I didn't like it then and don't now.

    If you're going to rant, at least get your facts straight. Most of your rant is bunk.

    Obama was probably just nervous being in front of the cameras. He is not interested in photo ops. :laugh:

    if he were clueless, he wouldn't be as dangerous as we all think he is or running the opposition around in circles.
    He's not very smart, yes, but I would hardly think of him as clueless.
    Now if we talk about people like Pelosi, that's something else.

    Hitler was clueless.

    He was also dangerous.

    One doesn't necessarily negate the other.

    Clueless about military matters... Many believe(d) so.

    Clueless about politics... The argument can be made that he was a genius.

    Dangerous... Yep.

    .
    Clueless in general. No one with a clue chooses a people to blame for the ills of the world. That's not "genius." That's ignorant. Even when it works.
    Most psychopaths are.

    Disagree. I do not know what definition of genius that you think that I am using; but he did have a natural ability, strong inclination, talent, knack, flair, etc. for politics.

    Politics doesn't require genius. It requires deviousness and at least a slight case of Borderline Personality Disorder.

    Statesmanship. That is what requires genius. Hitler wasn't a statesman. We don't have any today, either, except perhaps for Ben Carson. Hopefully he won't get swept up into the hype and nonsense of how Washington works.

    The German people thought so in that nation's heady prewar days.

    Perception isn't always synonymous with reality. The people's "thoughts" had nothing to do with whether he actually was or not. And he was not. Dictators seldom are.
