Half of my letters brand me an idiot - President Obama

* From correspondents in Washington * From: AFP * March 11, 2010 10:24AM

US President Barack Obama has joked that half of the 40,000 letters that pour into the White House each day brand him an "idiot''.

Tongue-in-cheek, the President remarked that his staff did not spare him the wrath of his correspondents - selecting a representative portion of 10 letters for him to read when he returns to the White House residence at night.

"I will tell you, that my staff is very even-handed, because about half of these letters call me an idiot!'' Mr Obama said overnight, chuckling at his own joke during a rally in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Note the three self-centered references. I, my, me. He’s a narcissistic idiot.

So he’s only basing that on five of ten letters out of 40,000? I guess ‘idiot’ is the least derogatory term his staff could find.

Since he admits half, it must be more like 6:4 or 7:3.

said those selected for him to read help him to puncture the presidential "bubble'' and connect with average Americans.

it ain't working - cause he has such disdain for "average Americans" versus his elite company.

To him, we are the great unwashed, not worthy of a second thought from his HighNASS.

In a couple of years the percentage will be about 80% who call him an idiot and he’ll still have the same cavalier attitude about it unless he’s impeached or arrested before then.

Sometimes, it becomes desirable to keep an idiot busy. The question becomes how does one accomplish such a feat? Please scroll down.

Yet another 0bama lie. People smart enough to know he is an idiot are also smart enought to know that writing it down and sending it to the White House would be inviting a Secret Service rectal examination.

“Half of my letters brand me an idiot”

Well, Barack, if half the mail I got said I was an idiot, I would be doing some serious introspection.

But then, that is how a reasonable person would react.

That is why he gets only ten letters...they can only fivnd five positive ones, so to make it seem even-handed, they limit the bad ones to 5 as well.

Out of his first thousand letters, I bet 995 called him unflattering names or made allusions to what he could not sell on the side of the road, even if the troopers were directing traffice to his stand.

The man's narcissism & arrogance astonishes me ... more and more each time he "campaigns".

and he probably thinks he's coming across as "charming" and "down to earth" with these sort of "stories".
