FBN's Charles Payne Wonders: Is Obama Smart? - Yahoo! NewsPayne criticized what he termed another Obama "campaign speech" Monday, calling it "the worst speech of his presidency." He found particularly galling the president's implication that unlimited unemployment checks were another civil right."
The criticism followed a Payne interview today with Wall Street Journal editorial writer Brett Stephens who is the focus of much attention for an article titled "Is Obama Smart?"
The gist of the article was not that the president was unintelligent, but that Obama is a mediocre man surrounded by media flatterers who habitually elevated Obama's prosaic pronouncements to the level of the divine.
