Obama: Danny Glover's a Dick

Well, that's basically what he said. And if he'd said just that, I guess I'd agree. But he didn't.

He told us how damnably popular he is, yet again.

President Barack Obama deflected criticism Monday that he has not been attentive enough to the African-American community, telling American Urban Radio Networks that he was unconcerned to see that kind of message coming from former supporters such as actor Danny Glover.

"If you want me to line up all the black actors, for example, who support me and put them on one side of the room and a couple who are grumbling on the other, I'm happy to have that," Obama said, adding that polls show African-Americans express "overwhelming support for what we've tried to do."

In an interview with reporter April Ryan, Obama argued that the fact of his sitting with Ryan for an interview with the Oval Office was significant on its own.

"Is there grumbling?" he asked rhetorically. "Of course, there's grumbling, because we just went through the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression."

As Kanye West said, Obama hates black people. Or at least his grumbling black critics.

I think we can establish a general rule that Obama doesn't like anyone who doesn't polish his ass to a high sheen.

A bit more:

Obama repeatedly used the pronoun "we" in discussing America's black community, but insisted that he shouldn't be expected to target policies exclusively to African-Americans.

"The only thing I cannot do is, by law I can't pass laws that say I'm just helping black folks," Obama said. "I'm the president of the entire United States. What I can do is make sure that I am passing laws that help all people, particularly those who are most vulnerable and most in need. That, in turn, is going to help lift up the African-American community."

This is a bit telling. Much of what he's doing is a wealth-transfer from one demographic (older, whiter) to another (younger, blacker). One needn't need to be a racist to object to such take-from-me-to-give-to-thee scheming.

As he says, he can't pass laws that "say" he's doing this, even if he's kind of doing it.

This guy has just never gotten serious criticism in his life. He's been overindulged and promoted far beyond his abilities his whole damn life. Until now, when he's promoted to a position he's plainly unqualified for, and he's shocked at this new human invention called "criticism."

Psychologically, this guy is the high school Alpha Jock who was King Shit of Fuck Mountain for the whole of his life... until he fails to make the team in college, and his status as a superstar is suddenly taken away from him.

And he reacts with anger, of course, swirled with a bit of existential panic -- What is he if not that?

So that's what we have in this "first-class temperament" guy. A coddled, petulant boy-man who stewing in resentment that the the rest of his life wasn't just as easy as grades K-12.
