rodomontade \ˌrä-də-mən-ˈtād, ˌrō-, -ˈtäd\ noun
1. bragging speech
2. vain boasting or bluster : rant

Example sentence:
For all of its jingoistic rodomontade, the government had no thought-out plan for the war and its aftermath.

Etymology:
from Italian rodomonte a boaster, from Rodomonte the name of a braggart king of Algiers in epic poems by Boiardo and Ariosto.

did you happen to see the thread yesterday on FR about the Rev David Manning video talking to a fellow HS student of the obams? she said he has always been a pathological liar and engaged in rodomontade. she also had a rather disconcerting pic of our CIC. i will look for the link.

There once was a president so vain
He gave a major law his name
The people cried “O’Lawd”
At his rodomontade
Which is just jactitation by another name.

So, the video of Obama saying “you can keep your plan” over and over is a rodomontage?

No, but I remember reading quotes from his HS basketball coach who said zero was always wanting to play and how he wasn't very good but insisted he was better than anyone out there. A for you, F- for the complete incompetent at anything he has ever tried, except for campaigning.
