Obama Selects Eight Inauguration "Co-Chairs" to Exemplify American Success Stories Tales of His Own Supposed Success

And thus Narcissus became enchanted by his own reflection.

President Barack Obama is featuring eight Americans as "citizen co-chairs" of his inauguration, a new role created to highlight his first-term accomplishments with examples of lives that have either been improved by his actions or inspired his presidency.

The honorees announced Thursday include a woman with a brain tumor who no longer is denied health care for a pre-existing condition; an autoworker who got her job back after the General Motors bailout; and a gay pilot-in-training kicked out of the Air Force before the president repealed the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Inauguration officials said the president has met most of the eight individuals during his first term and their inclusion in inaugural events is meant to showcase his administration's core values through real-life examples that people across the country can relate to.

One of the co-chairs is a bomb-disposal expert who had all four limbs taken from him by a bomb. Obama's great inspiration for him? Showing up at Walter Reed and giving him a Purple Heart.

I think we're defining "success" way down low for Obama. Obama is now highlighting his unrivaled powers as a messenger.
