During an interview with longtime ally, CBS News anchor Charlie Rose, Barack Obama (and Michelle) lamented having failed to adequately relate the true extent of the Presidents genius to the American public. The nature of this office is to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, not just to [think] about getting the policy right said Obama to the reliably sympathetic Rose.
In Obamas mind, this means that though he has worked to add trillions to the debt, keep unemployment high and destroy any chance of economic recovery, if only he had done a better job packaging and presenting these willful disasters as triumphs, his campaign wouldnt be in trouble and the American people would properly appreciate his tireless efforts on their behalf.

Of course Obama and the rest of the far left believe most Americans simply cant grasp how fortunate they are that people like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and...

He’s getting as delusional as Ceaucescu!
Someday nobama will write an entirely fictitious book about his years in office and his accomplishments. He’ll title it, “My Magnificence.”
Once upon a time...
More like Idi Amin.
I wonder if Ubama is ravaged by syphilis ?
The Truth Fairy knows all.
According to Democrats, it’s all about controlling the narrative. Obama admits to losing control.
This is an example of what Shakespeare called the insolence of office. Thanks to the flawed epistemology, his title and the illusion of power cause a delusional exaggerated mania of self-esteem. He becomes a legend in his own mind.
Let's get a list started...
Recently, at a rally, when a woman fainted, he suggested someone ought to get help from the "paralegals."
There are hundreds more, these are just the most recent or most comical.
My all time favorite :
I have known Islam on three continents
That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isnt.
Only an ignorant, delusional schizophrenic would interpret that to mean what he intended it to mean. Yet he remains oblivious to the obvious gaffe.
please contrast this silly statement from the current President with a truly meaningful one from one of your nation's former Presidents whose intelligence, accomplishments, and renown as Author of our Declaration of Independence qualify him to concisely describe the role of an American President:
In his own words:
1801 Inaugural Address of Thomas Jefferson
(Excerpt) "Let us, then, with courage and confidence pursue our own Federal and Republican principles, our attachment to union and representative government. . . possessing a chosen country, with room enough for our descendants to the thousandth and thousandth generation; entertaining a due sense of our equal right to the use of our own faculties, to the acquisitions of our own industry, to honor and confidence from our fellow-citizens, resulting not from birth, but from our actions and their sense of them; enlightened by a benign religion, professed, indeed, and practiced in various forms, yet all of them inculcating honesty, truth, temperance, gratitude, and the love of man; acknowledging and adoring an overruling Providence, which by all its dispensations proves that it delights in the happiness of man here and his greater happiness hereafterwith all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people?
"Still one thing more, fellow-citizensa wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.
"About to enter, fellow-citizens, on the exercise of duties which comprehend everything dear and valuable to you, it is proper you should understand what I deem the essential principles of our Government, and consequently those which ought to shape its Administration. I will compress them within the narrowest compass they will bear, stating the general principle, but not all its limitations.
= Equal and exact justice to all men, of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political;
- peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none;
- the support of the State governments in all their rights, as the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns and the surest bulwarks against antirepublican tendencies;
- the preservation of the General Government in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home and safety abroad;
- a jealous care of the right of election by the peoplea mild and safe corrective of abuses which are lopped by the sword of revolution where peaceable remedies are unprovided;
- absolute acquiescence in the decisions of the majority, the vital principle of republics, from which is no appeal but to force, the vital principle and immediate parent of despotism;
- a well disciplined militia, our best reliance in peace and for the first moments of war, till regulars may relieve them;
- the supremacy of the civil over the military authority;
- economy in the public expense, that labor may be lightly burthened;
- the honest payment of our debts and sacred preservation of the public faith;
- encouragement of agriculture, and of commerce as its handmaid;
- the diffusion of information and arraignment of all abuses at the bar of the public reason;
- freedom of religion;
- freedom of the press, and freedom of person under the protection of the habeas corpus, and
- trial by juries impartially selected.
These principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation. The wisdom of our sages and blood of our heroes have been devoted to their attainment. They should be the creed of our political faith, the text of civic instruction, the touchstone by which to try the services of those we trust; and should we wander from them in moments of error or of alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty, and safety." - Thomas Jefferson
You can't fit that into a tweet or a fu*kbook post so you're wasting your time with the slovenly uneducated 'electorate' we now have in this country.
Hey, is the 'game' or American Idol on now? Sorry gotta to TTFN. /s
