Good Grief. Barack Obama played the victim card and compared himself to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at a fundraiser in Manhattan last night.
The Politicker reported, via Poor Richards News:
Standing in Weinsteins basement, Obama said his troubles are like the ones facing Cuomo.
When I ran in 2008, I think that a lot of folks believed we elect Obama and suddenly were going to fix politics in Washington, Obama said. And Andrew is familiar with this, because everybody figures, well, were going to fix politics in Albany.
And then it turns out that there are a lot of bad habits that have been built up over time, and were also a big, diverse country and not everybody agrees with me; not everybody agrees with the folks who live in Manhattan, he said, drawing laughter from the rich celebrities that filled the room. West of here, he said. You guys may not be familiar with it.
Before leaving, Obama likened himself to one more figure. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I think that we forget when he was alive there was nobody who was more vilified, nobody who was more controversial, nobody who was more despairing at times, he said.
Vilified? Really? Weve never seen a president get such an obvious pass from the leftwing media in the history of this country. Thats just nuts.
This is just more proof that the Narcissist in Chief takes no responsibility for his failed policies that have caused the American economy to tank.
All the pain and misery in the world heaped onto his shoulders by Bush and Co. It just brreaks the heart.
But does he have a dream?
Obama? a privileged white boy!
But does he have a dream?
Yes he does. But one man’s dream is anther man’s nightmare.
The white president, FDR, JFK, Lincoln, Reagan, etc, gig wasn’t working for him, had to go back to the skin tone gig.
It’s going to get worse. As he loses support, he’ll foment racial discord even more.
When his bid Rahm ran in Chicago, Rahm said in a debate that he would be open to the idea of reparations.
I’m just waiting for Obama to play the “make whitey pay” card.
“ Before leaving, Obama likened himself to one more figure”
As usual, it’s always all about him. He’s pathologically self-centered and self-referential. The country is merely a stage for his play. He is indeed the Narcissist-in-Chief.
In one way he might be better than King. I have not heard of any reports than Obama is an adulterer.
When he comes out and says he “feels like he’s been nailed to a cross” we’ll know he has lost his mind.
No suffering more like Mohamed the savage!
From a commenter at the site:
First off, Dr. King is a REPUBLICAN.
Second, Dr. King is ANTI-ABORTION.
Third, Dr. King is a CHRISTIAN.
Fourth, DR. King has more honesty, integrity, and courage than Obama ever will!
Next thing you know, he will complain about having to pick cotton in the South. OK, cultivating pot in the basement, but, what is one lie among weeds.
Not Christ on the cross? He's slipping.
he should be careful what he wishes for.

Tryin to keep it real. Even though he ain’t.
Was he comparing himself to King or The King of kings?
