He is far from being an idiot, he knows that he wants to make this country into a Socialist or even a Comminust country and will do all in his power to acheive it. The media treats him like a Celebrety and he feels he can do no wrong because no one is questioning him.

Just like xfahctor said, Obama is no idiot and he is not making the right decisions for our country. People voted for Obama becuase he, in many ways, gave everyone hope and some promise of a new day in America. But, when that day has fully dawned I don't think many if any Americans are gonna be happy about it. People can sit and debate in great detail about why this Obama policy is wrong and that one is right but the debate often misses the real point. The point is that America was founded on freedom and our founding fathers intended for the people, not the politicians, of America to run the country. But, the policies being pushed by Obama and the Congress fly blatantly in the face of that freedom. They promise that everyone will have health care. But who will pay for it? They emphasize the importance of environmental policies to combat global warming when common sense tells us that we can't control the climate. They claim that the stimulus and budget proposals will result in millions of jobs being created all to the tune of trillions of dollars being spent when what they are doing is bankrupting America and placing the burden of paying off the debt on the future generations of Americans. But, the truth is, it's not the job of the government to solve any of those problems. It's the job of the people. That's what it means to be free and that's what our founding fathers wanted. No, neither Obama, nor any of the other politicians in Washington for that matter are idiots. They know exactly what they are doing. They are making promises they can't and perhaps have no intentions of keeping while telling us that everything is gonna get better for everyone. Maybe we are the idiots.

Neither. the man is far from an idiot.But he certainly isn't making the right decisions. In fact, he and his administrations AND congress are all making decisions that would make our founders roll over in their graves. But you can't sum it up by simply saying he isn't making the right decisions. It is much more complex than that.
