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.

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?
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.
I know a few boyz in the hood that are wondering
how the hell he made it this far for sure.
They of course are not lefties.
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???
Very interesting; where did you get these numbers?
What a nOOb, forever bragging to look good for the ‘hood.
It has been the longest 30 days ever.
Hey, the Dude has won the Spending trophy hands down along with the stock mkt crash record.
We have yet to see any positive results. Talk is cheap.
“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.”
Yes, he’s done more damage to this country than most politicians can manage in an entire career.
It’s hard for anyone to compete with Reagan getting the hostages released from Iran...the day he was sworn in!
The audacity of tooting your own horn.
Stop, look, listen... pure propaganda.
“Todays 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 youll discover that all were seeing is the public withhold judgment.”
Which makes sense.
The libs will approve and half the rest will be in wait-and-see. But ...
“Now compare his disapproval ratings (people whove already made up their minds they dont 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.”
29% according to latest Ras ... The stimulus is a hoax, the econ policies are all wrong and Obama is the wrong man to lead us through these tough times.
[This jerks over-reaching hubris is going to spell the end of his disastrous administration, Im convinced of it.]
I agree and sure hope so.
I think Obama is the Britney Spears of politics. At first she was pretty cute, until the novelty wore off and you found out she was just a chubby insane crazy whore.
I can’t wait for the “Leave Obama Alone” on Youtube.
They look like radio telescopes to me. It would explain a lot wouldn’t? LOL
Looks like the 'NewSpeak' propaganda arm of the Federal-Media complex is functioning in high gear.
Has ABDNC said this is the best speech ever given in the history of mankind yet?
Pray for America and Our Troops
Nope. A comment here would be just too easy.

Yes, well, I guess it depends on who is counting the days...

Good post...really...the numbers are not lying and they are the numbers that matter...the negatives are startling...you should post (with a link) to the forum...
