Obama Arrogant?



Not sure where one would get that idea.

The 200,000 souls who thronged to his speech in Berlin came not just for him, he told the enthralled audience of congressional representatives.

"I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions," he said.

Yea, we have long waited for an inexperienced legislator with no significant accomplishments and former community organizer to lead us out of the wilderness.


Misquoted? - Not sure how this makes him look less full of himself. He's still claiming his candidacy means more than it actually does and that the key to "America being all it can be" is to elect him president. Speaking for the world, if anything, is even more presumptuous than the original quote. (H/t: Hot Air)

MORE [DrewM.] Slu and I were exchanging emails about a comment I left below and thought it was a point worth considering...

Is it just me or is Obama everything the left thought Bush was and hated but now they love in their Messiah?

Remember how Bush didn't have enough 'gravitas' in 2000? Or how he spent too much time working out? How long did the press hound Bush trying to get him to admit he was wrong about Iraq and WMD and then try to get him to apologize. They hated Bush because he wasn't very curious about the world and would never change his mind, no matter what the 'facts' were.

You could substitute Obama in each of those cases...he's arrogant, lacks gravitas, works out a lot, never admits a mistake and boasts that his trip didn't teach him a thing he didn't already know. Yet the left loves him for it.

If it weren't so pathetic and dangerous, it would be funny.

Funny how times change.
