In his June 29 Newsmax column, John L. Perry declares that President Obama has no class. His proof: Just look at the guy!
No, really -- that's it. Perry offers no specific examples but instead speaks in generalities, insisting that "It’s a bit like Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s celebrated dictum non-defining hard-core pornography: 'I know it when I see it.'" What Perry purports to be his evidence also lacks specifics. Among them:
- The way he walks, the way he talks, the way he looks down his nose.
- The way he hasn’t learned to tie a four-in-hand necktie like the men do.
- The haughty way he fakes erudition off his teleprompter screens and proffers profundities on subjects in which he lacks credentials.
- The way he behaves not only as if it’s all about him but also as if he’s all about all that is.
Yes, Perry really did say that the fact Obama occasionally doesn't wear a tie is incontrovertible evidence not only that he has no class, but that he also can't tie a tie. Nice fit of Obama Derangement Syndrome there, John.
