Stupid Is As Stupid Does

This article from CBS News probably wasn’t meant to be funny.

In what he thought was a private chat with campaign donors Thursday evening, President Obama offered the most revealing behind-the-scenes account to date of his budget negotiations with GOP leaders last week.

CBS Radio News White House correspondent Mark Knoller listened in to an audio feed of Mr. Obama’s conversation with donors after other reporters traveling with the president had left the room.

In the candid remarks, Mr. Obama complains of Republican attempts to attach measures to the budget bill which would have effectively killed parts of his hard-won health care reform program.

“I said, ‘You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We’ll have that debate. You’re not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we’re stupid?'” recalled the president of his closed-door negotiations on the bill to fund the federal government until September.

Let’s think about this for a second. You aren’t smart enough to hire people who know how to shut off the microphone. Now that by itself isn’t a reliable indicator of intelligence, but added to the heap of other really stupid things you have said and done, it serves nicely as additional corroboration.

So, Mr. President, do I think you’re stupid? Yeah, I do. Sorry to be so blunt, but you asked.
