Throughout his time in office, President Obama has been named among the world’s most influential and powerful people, but his name has surfaced on a new list that is antithesis of power and influence. This year’s edition of GQ’s annual ’25 Least Influential People’ includes names like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. Number 17 on the list is none other than the President himself.
“I find this amazing,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “GQ magazine: The 25 Least Influential People of 2013. The president of the United States – he's number 17.”
GQ had this to say about President Obama’s time in office:
He can blame Republicans in Congress all he likes and get away with it because congressional Republicans are the worst. But the fact remains that I have spent the majority of this man's presidency watching bad things happen, then hearing a thoughtful speech about how we gotta make sure the bad things never happen again, and then watching as nothing gets done. Next time there's an election, I want Nate Silver to analyze the data and tell me who to vote for so that I don't end up casting my ballot for a very eloquent hat stand.
“About time,” Pat asked. “I mean what does it take?”
“It takes a $2 trillion program that does nothing,” Stu responded. “That's what it takes.”
“And a $600 million website that doesn't work,” Pat added.
Glenn, however, wasn’t so sure people have even realized the true extent of the problem with the Obama Administration yet.
“No, it is none of that. It is honestly none of that,” Glenn concluded. “It is: They have to lose their health insurance. That's what it's going to take. And we haven't even started.”
