Obama Claim: Done More in 30 Days Than Other Presidents Economy Will Dominate Obama Speech Tonight By JAKE TAPPER and MARK MOONEY

Feb. 24, 2009 —

The Obama administration is going into tonight's pivotal speech to Congress with the belief that President Obama has accomplished more in the first 30 days in office than any modern president.

The president will give the nation a "sober assessment" about the status of the country's economy tonight as he assures Americans that there are "better days ahead," according to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

Obama will address a joint meeting of Congress tonight in a speech that will be shown live on national television, giving the president a chance to sketch out his agenda for the country after having authorized a massive $787 billion stimulus package as well as a $75 billionhomeowner bailout.

It will also allow the administration to brag a bit.

"President Obama has accomplished more in 30 days than any president in modern history," a senior White House official said today in a background briefing.

Right ... no other President had the market drop by more than 20% in the 30 days since their inauguration.

The hubris is amazing.

Whatever you want to say about George W., he didn't regularly compare himself to great Presidents or constantly claim such glories.

This guy has an incredibly swollen ego. Nauseating.

It is irrefutable that he's spent more of the next generation's money than any man in US history. The bailout alone exceeded the ENTIRE federal budget of 1982 - that should put some perspective on it.

It may be decades before we truly realize the damage he's done in 30 days.

Three Executive Orders and a bill he didn’t even read before signing. Half his appointees didn’t pay income taxes and he took off for Valetine’s Day weekend less than a month on the job because his wife says so.

I can’t decided whether to send him a tea bag or a bag of dirt.

Right ... no other President had the market drop by more than 20% in the 30 days since their inauguration.

That is the perfect objective measure of what Obama has done to our economy. It understates the damage, because it only includes economic damages, but it's sufficient to prove the point: Obama has already done exceptionally grave damage to the economy and to the entire United States of America.

Every president we’ve had in the past would have known not to do what 0 has done in the past 30 days. Bad decisions don’t take long to make, but they can take forever to correct.

I’m sure he’s on his effin’ KNEES praying the stock market doesn’t go below 7000 before close. I don’t care how much the MSM tries to put this phoney over, America, more and more, is seeing him as an socialist, marxist ideologue who is giving away their money to others who don’t deserve it. They didn’t support the bailout, and they aren’t supporting the stimulus bill. This whole Mortgage bailout is actually making my “progressive” fans upset now.

His only base will be inner city welfare queens before this is over.

Today’s new Gallup poll puts him at 59%. Compare him to previous presidents one month in, such as G W Bush (62%), Jimmy Carter (71%), Bill Clinton (59%), George H. W. Bush (63%), and Richard Nixon (60%), and you’ll discover that all we’re seeing is the public withhold judgment.

Now compare his disapproval ratings (people who’ve already made up their minds they don’t like him), 25% to George W Bush (21%), George Bush (13%), Ronald Reagan (18%), Jimmy Carter (9%), and Richard Nixon (6%). The only one with a higher disapproval rating was President Clinton, on his way to losing both houses of Congress.

Obama has a particularly unattractive case of Mine’s Bigger Syndrome, constantly comparing his whanger to all the other boyz.

His advisers have given him the distinct impression that it’s an important presidential quality, and he believed them.

The other boyz are laughing him to scorn behind his back.

But if they’re not, I am.

The kiddies are certainly in charge. It’s not how much you have “done”, it’s about results.

Probably in the community organizing world, doing a lot is enough to get paid and a pat on the back. In the real world, doing a lot and demonstrating poor results gets you fired.

Come back and brag when you have some decent results.

I disagree. I think that Obama is trying to compare himself to other presidents because he has such low self esteem and self confidence that he must compare himself to giants such as the Republican Party founder and now Ronald Reagan.Has he not heard that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

Excerpt from: Pathological Narcissism, Psychosis, and Delusions

One of the most important symptoms of pathological narcissism (the Narcissistic Personality Disorder) is grandiosity. Grandiose fantasies (megalomaniac delusions of grandeur) permeate every aspect of the narcissist's personality. They are the reason that the narcissist feels entitled to special treatment which is typically incommensurate with his real accomplishments. The grandiosity gap is the abyss between the narcissist's self-image (as reified by his False Self) and reality.

Narcissistic delusions rarely persist in the face of blanket opposition and reams of evidence to the contrary. The narcissist usually tries to convert his social milieu to his point of view. He attempts to condition his nearest and dearest to positively reinforce his delusional False Self. But, if he fails, he modifies his profile on the fly. He "plays it by ear". His False Self is extemporaneous - a perpetual work of art, permanently reconstructed in a reiterative process designed around intricate and complex feedback loops.

Though the narcissistic personality is rigid - its content is always in flux. Narcissists forever re-invent themselves, adapt their consumption of narcissistic supply to the "marketplace", attuned to the needs of their "suppliers". Like the performers that they are, they resonate with their "audience", giving it what it expects and wants. They are efficient instruments for the extraction and consumption of human reactions.

As a result of this interminable process of fine tuning, narcissists have no loyalties, no values, no doctrines, no beliefs, no affiliations, and no convictions. Their only constraint is their addiction to human attention, positive or negative. Narcissistic Personality Disorder is insufficient grounds for claiming a "diminished capacity" (insanity) defense. Narcissists are never divorced from reality - they crave it, and need it, and consume it in order to maintain the precarious balance of their disorganized, borderline-psychotic personality. All narcissists, even the freakiest ones, can tell right from wrong, act with intent, and are in full control of their faculties and actions.

If there was ever a statement by a politician that did not pass the SMELL TEST this is it. What a totally absurd comment. He is obviously a narcissist not to mention an idiot.

I heard this on the radio and bust into laughter. I guess they are using the same approach of telling a BIG lie often enough that people begin to believe it!

What total BS!

Name ONE THING he has accomplished???
