Obama Has Proven Himself To Be A Naif

Over and over again.

Naïf
Noun: Naïf nah-EEF
1. A naive or inexperienced person

Does that fully describe Barack Obama?

Not according to the Roanoke Times editorial staff.

From "Platitudes and broken promises":

"Obama has proven to be anything but the naif that Republicans like to conjure, but his pragmatism has at times morphed into more troubling behavior. He has willingly used assassination drones against terrorists overseas, for example. He put aside his 2008 campaign promise to shut down Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp."

One could easily argue that Obama's promise to close Guantanamo - only to be startled when the real world smacked him upside the head and he changed his mind (the essence of naïveté) - is the best example one could come up with to prove that he was a naïf going in, with no proof that anything's changed all these years later.

But better yet, how about a one-word argument that supports the notion that he's a Naïf Extraordinaire?

Benghazi.

Or, if pictures speak a thousand words ...


Obscured by his ass stuck in the air is a suppliant President of the United States bowing before a Muslim potentate.
