"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?
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.
Naïf Noun: Naïfnaif
1. A naive or inexperienced person

Dealing with Obama's keen razor-sharp wit, here's Mark Steyn:
"Even the president mocked Romney for 'finally getting tough on Big Bird' — not in the debate, of course, where such dazzling twinkle-toed repartee might have helped, but a mere 24 hours later, once the rapid-response team had directed his speechwriters to craft a line, fly it out to a campaign rally, and load it into the prompter, he did deliver it without mishap."
"The choice in this campaign is clear. On the major issues of the day — jobs and the economy, the size of government and man’s relation to it, America’s future energy course, and political philosophy — George Allen wins."
The choice couldn't be any clearer. The failed policies of the past or a vibrant future full of possibilities.
I'm for dumping the horrid past and heading into that great beyond.
