The fact that you can use C++ with so many different paradigms (OOP, generic programming, procedural, even functional programming these days) leads to a lot of misuse, but its power in that regard is amazing. You can use it to do domain-specific-language style coding. In terms of this flexibility, it's unmatched.

The problem is, C++ isn't taught well, so it often isn't used well. It's not OO primarily. It's power comes primarily from templates so generic programming is the order of the day. A $20 book called Accelerated C++ is better at teaching C++ than all the courses one took to get that shiny lil CS degree.

I've seen so much OO C++ code in my time it's just silly. MFC comes to mind.
