Morning Joe: Obama Sees Our Democracy As 'Stumbling Block To His Greatness' (video)

Morning Joe remains the home of the overwhelming ratio of liberal to conservative guests. Even so, in recent weeks a narrative unflattering to Barack Obama has emerged around the table: Obama doesn't like his job. He doesn't particularly like people and is in the wrong line of work.

An even more damning appraisal was offered today: Obama doesn't think he has failed America. He thinks America has failed him. Or as Joe Scarborough encapsulated the concept, Obama believes our version of democracy is a "stumbling block to his greatness."

JON MEACHAM: I think it's, if you think about it from a biographical point of view, it's his thinking the system, and really the country, is not commensurate with his gifts.

Scary.

Good thing it’s hard to stage a military coup when the military hates your guts.

Well, the UN Charter states that the job of Secretary General cannot go to any of the Permanent Members of the Security Council (US, UK, France, Russia, and China), so Barry the Boob can’t be that. Plus, if you look at it, the job of UN Ambassador to the UN is just a ‘prestige position’. It really is of no importance anymore.

Joe Scarborough gives me whip lash. He comes up with these comments that “sound” like barbs, but amount to nothing but air ball postulations that he can easily undo or rearrange to calm his Lefty pals and Marxist Mika. The REAL damaging stuff is always aimed squarely, definitively and unalterably at the Republicans, so that there is never any misunderstanding as to who is paying his bills. He has the O’Reilly syndrome—very high on himself.

His trump card, however, is his Kenyan birth certificate. LOL

Actually, I can very well believe it.

It fits completely with the "diagnosis" many have given, informally but believably, of his being narcissistic. If it's several million to one, then the several million must be wrong.

I think he may have actually thought that the fainting and crying and nonsense that happened during his campaign appearances were going to continue on, and multiply, during his presidency. Just his being in office was going to heal the earth and cause the waters to rise (or recede, whatever), remember?

He bought his own hype. The fact that so many of us didn't, and don't, and don't fall down at his feet in worship, and agree to everything he says and does and ask for more, is just proof that we are not worthy of him, we limit him, we stand between him and true greatness, and all that sort of balderdash.

If zero is re-elected, we need a coup to get him out.

The description of Obama, a legend in his own mind, is apt.

It is a combination of Mussolini’s haughty pose, Stalin’s iron-fist, Alinsky’s marxist community street organizer, and the whole Communist Party USA influence on him, as well as the arrogant, unrepentant attitude of communist terrorist Bill Ayers and his movement slut wife/terrorist, Bernadine Dohrn, a so-called “law professor” at Northwestern Univ.

More specifically, roll all these influences (the CPers were Frank Marshall Davis, David Canter, possibly Don Rose (a CP sympathizer), and Quentin Young (Obama healthcare)); the New Left marxist hate and arrogance of Ayers/Dohrn); the marxist organizational skills and “con” tactics of Saul Alinsky; the slickness of Green/Red czar Van Jones; the Mao-was-a good guy communications skills of Anita Dunn and the flamboyant hate America mentality of Rev. Wright (the original hate whitey, hate America marxist/friend of Farrakhan, Castro and Qaddafi), as well as the Soviet marxism of his father and the hippy-leftist Kumbaya of his mother, which, when put together, created a “new marxist man”, Barack Hussein Obama.

Rolled together, Obama, along with his skilled team of Democrats/Marxists disinformation, misinformation and no-information PR specialists, was able to perpetrate the greatest con-job on America in our political history (and duped enough liberals/leftists and undereducated Americans) to fall for his covert racism and marxism and get him elected president.

He is the total narcissist, the most arrogant leader America ever had, and a closet racist, besides generally hating his country to the point that he has betrayed and weakened it whenever he could.

He will fall, along with his sycophants, toadies, asskissers and in-house communists, on Nov. 6, 2012. Then we will have our revenge, a political “night of the long knives” that will fill our jails with traitors, crooks, and commies (i.e. the Obama team).

Transparency will prevail and America will be shocked at what they will see. The emperor will be exposed as “having no clothes” , as having no loyalty to America, and as having purposely planned for the downfall of our country.

The documents are there, often in plain sight, but one must “see” (Carlos Casteneda) before they can “understand.”

Yup.

He is text book N to the nth degree.

My guess is that because he is being scrutinized for the first time in his little coddled life...he is going to blow. Soon.

“Barry the Boob” isn’t a US citizen. He was born in Kenya.

If he really, really wants to head up the UN, watch him leave the US and declare his return to the beloved homeland of Kenya. From there, surrounded by adoring Kenyans, he’ll make his move.

Yuk, yuk...he really pulled a fast one on those stupid whites! (The people in Kenya do no like America.)

I know I repeat this here ad nauseum, but this ironic attempt of liberals to assert themselves as important individuals, by pushing a political ideology that suppresses the ability of the the rest of us to distinguish ourselves as individuals, is absolutely the norm for politically active liberals. It's the height of hypocrisy. The chance to ‘be the one’ who politically restructures society is an incredible aphrodisiac to those who need to be ‘really special’. Karl Marx fits this description. This pathetic, arrogant, narcissistic, drive to ‘be special’ is at the core of so many leftist politicians. When debating them one needs to remember this, because ultimately if you question their ‘specialness’ they will lose composure. This is why you will rarely, if ever, hear Obama admit to mistakes.

Being constitutionally ineligible for the job didn't stop him from becoming president of the US. Why should the job of UN Secretary General be any different?

Mussolini felt stifled by the status quo in Italy too so he changed it. He left industry under private ownership but took charge of it.

No it doesn't. Read Chapter III Article 8.

We looked at this after Clinton left office.

Folks, we all need to be more sensitive to Obama’s inner torment, anguish and pain, because he was unjustifiably denied the honor of receiving the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.

Doesn’t America understand the level of sacrifice that he has endured on our behalf? How ungrateful of us not to notice.

Scary thought. However, we need a lot of proof, not just these kind of photos. No one has put momma Obama with Malcolm X. She’s one of the questions in Obama’s life that has not been answered, and Barry, by keeping her from talking to the press, is hiding something, but what?

That is why we keep looking.

The way to get to him is with infantile (Democrat) type antics ... calling him “Barry the Boob” is good ... “Narcissist/communist/socialist/teleprompter reader in chief” is good ... just don’t bother engaging him in any way that appears to make his response relevant. He is going to blow ... and self destruct with drugs...

I read it, and you have a point...the language is fairly ambiguous.

However, in practice, no one from any of the ‘big 5’ has ever served as Sec-General. We shall see.
