We’re certainly aware the president isn’t sitting in front of a copy of Photoshop putting these tweets together personally, but are we the only ones noticing a peculiar trend?

The Obama campaign recently honored the late astronaut Neil Armstrong by posting a photo of … Obama. So what better way to mark the anniversary of the end of combat operations in Iraq than by posting another photo of Obama?

The empty chair ought to haunt every campaign stop he makes. The streets he travels ought to be lined with empty chairs. This thin-skinned minnie just can’t take being ridiculed, although he richly deserves it. And the Secret Service will look extremely foolish frantically searching for offending empty chairs. This could be such fun!

It actually is deeper than that; while I’m sure the token president has delusions of grandeur, he is desperately trying to portray himself as part of the American story he shares so little of with the American voters. This is similar to how he was “writing himself into” different segments of the American story a few months back with editing.

Many people today think of Reagan as the epitome of an “American” president, due to his unabashed patriotism, his obvious belief in American exceptionalism, etc.; Obama portrayed none of that once he won the office (he briefly “played patriot” during his campaign to successfully seduce weak-minded voters), and now he has to compensate for it because the country is doing so poorly.

My wife says that he is following the pattern of Mao, Il, Castro and Chavez. He is saturating the world with himself and, if things follow, he’ll refuse to give up the presidency.

This is a good point and one that applies across a spectrum of issues. As a similar example, I hear it with his jarring use of "folks" to describe middle America in his speeches - he sounds like an anthropologist reporting on some exotic tribe he discovered.

“he sounds like an anthropologist reporting on some exotic tribe he discovered.”

Well put, and probably closer to the mark than you think. Do you think in his Chicago days he ever had to deal with private-sector taxpayers and/or their issues/concerns?
