The smell of hubris and desperation

Can you imagine the outrage, yada, yada, yada...?

[Obama] said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

    Is that some sort of racist "back of the bus" hidden meaning there, barry?

    His real colors are coming out in the wash, aren't they?

    What a repulsive creature, this guy.

  • Same thing I was thinking, Drill.

    The Marxist, Muslim, anti-American bullshit artist is a very arrogant individual that shows his true colors under pressure.

    He’s sensing the heat coming to him next Tuesday; he doesn’t like it, and is snapping accordingly.

    You must understand that he had it very easy throughout the 2008 Presidential campaign because the MSM was in the tank with him and did not challenge his obvious flaws that would have prevented him from being President.

    Now the American people are getting tired of his Marxist, Socialist, anti-American act and what he's doing to America and will teach him a lesson next Tuesday.

    Either Obama changes his attitude and policies or his political career will self-destruct very much like Charlie Crists’s has.

    It is that simple.

    Obama's comment speaks for itself, and only too well. He's not much of a politician in and of himself, but more like a talking mannequin that thinks it's the genuine article and has been massively enabled by the MSM, not to mention tapping into the white guilt thing and the liberal compulsion to always look "progressive' and "daring" at any cost. In other words, the same triumph of image or fantasy over substance that was JFK. But really, I can imagine Bill Clinton's response to such a clumsy, graceless, boneheaded comment: "How stupid can this guy be?" Basically, Obama is like Narcissus, who's been looking in the mirror too long and too hard, and doesn't realize that everybody is not as foolish as poor, besotted Echo. Many if not most people are not willing to pine and waste away to nothing while Obama continues to admire himself.

    Ditto asombra,

    Obama is a complete bullshit act.

    As you said, even Bill Clinton (who I despise with passion) is a smarter politician and would not make such a bonehead comment.

    Unfortunately the MSM keeps praising Obama's intellect while events like this one that show the opposite take place.

    So at the end both Obama and the MSM loose more credibility with the American people and I couldn't be happier about it.

    At this rate Obama will self-destruct his political career because the more of these types of comments he makes the more the people will come to realize how unfit for the office he's.
