Doug Casey on Obama and the 2012 Election
Interviewed by Louis James, Editor, International Speculator

L: So, should we define Obama?
Doug: That’s hard to do. You know, it’s funny. When Trump was running, I criticized him. It’s hard for me to say anything good about Trump under any circumstances – but he at least had the brass to ask questions about Obama that other public figures wouldn’t touch, questions about who Obama really is and how he seemed to appear from nowhere. To my knowledge, no one has stepped forward to identify themselves as a school friend, or even a college friend of his. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I have to say that as far as I know, none of these questions have been satisfactorily answered.
L: You don’t need to believe any conspiracy theories to notice that there’s something odd about the man. He seems like a big zero to me, not a big O. Even when he’s reading the speeches people write for him to pull on the population’s heartstrings, he comes across almost completely wooden. Sometimes I’m sure he’s pausing not where there are commas or periods, but where the lines wrap on his teleprompter. He has the personality of a frozen mackerel.
Doug: It’s interesting that you point that out – I’ve often wondered if the special interests behind him couldn’t come up with anyone better. I’m not saying he has to be another George Carlin or Dave Chappel, but it would be nice to see that someone is home. Obama is so flat, I can’t even be sure whether he’s intelligent or not, although I initially assumed he was very smart. With Baby Bush, it was clear that he actually lacked intelligence. With Obama carefully plodding through his teleprompted speeches, I actually can’t tell if he’s smart or not. He was president of the Harvard Law Review, which would seem to argue for intelligence, but that could have been finessed as well. And exactly who paid for all his schooling and related expenses? I honestly don’t know who we’re dealing with.
