“…you are living among a rebellious people. They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people.” -Ezekiel 12:2
Many of us have known this about the POS since 2008, but some loyal Democrats are only now seeing him as the grandiose narcissist he is.
The New York Times‘ Jodi Kantor airs complaints from “loyal” Obama associates — not as a buried lede but explicitly in her introduction:
He has mentioned more than once in recent weeks that he cooks “a really mean chili.” He has impressive musical pitch, he told an Iowa audience. He is “a surprisingly good pool player,” he informed an interviewer — not to mention (though he does) a doodler of unusual skill.
The article reports Obama’s associates characterize this bluster and political zeal as “cockiness.” Further, Washington Democrats say he is all too eager to offer unsolicited advice — on handshakes, writing, and parenting, among other topics.
For those activities at which he feels inadequate, Obama reportedly dedicates considerable time to practice, no matter how trivial the pastime:
He has played golf 104 times since becoming president, according to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who monitors his outings, and he asks superior players for tips that have helped lower his scores. He decompresses with card games on Air Force One, but players who do not concentrate risk a reprimand (“You’re not playing, you’re just gambling,” he once told Arun Chaudhary, his former videographer).
His idea of birthday relaxation is competing in an Olympic-style athletic tournament with friends, keeping close score. The 2009 version ended with a bowling event. Guess who won, despite his history of embarrassingly low scores? The president, it turned out, had been practicing in the White House alley.
Kantor’s piece carries a long-running theme that Obama easily — perhaps even uncontrollably – rates and ranks others around him. A 2008 debate gaffe found him flippantly calling Hillary Clinton “likable enough.” Of Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign, he asserted, “We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin.” Even his own staff are subject to criticism:
“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Mr. Obama told Patrick Gaspard, his political director, at the start of the 2008 campaign, according to The New Yorker. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.”
So now that these Dems finally see the POS to be the pathological malignant narcissist that he really is, what are they gonna do about it?
A man goes to his psychiatrist and says, “My brother’s crazy. He thinks he’s a duck!” The psychiatrist asks the man why he doesn’t turn his brother in. The man shrugs his shoulders and says, ” I would, but I need the eggs.”
And that, boys and girls, is why the Dems will do NOTHING about the POS.
