Max Hastings: 'Obama Is a Pygmy When Compared to Wartime Leaders Like Roosevelt'
Breitbart ^ | 5 Jun 2014 | Breitbart News

Of course it is a challenge for any modern national leader, to stand tomorrow on the beaches of Normandy and recall the greatest days and martial triumphs of World War II.

The comparison is obvious and embarrassing, between the giants and the pygmies: Churchill and Cameron, Hollande and de Gaulle, above all Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama.

In 2014, at least Britain’s prime minister and France’s president must bear responsibility only for their own countries.

But the President of the United States is the standard-bearer for the global cause of freedom, commander-in-chief of the principal might of the forces of democracy.

Uh oh, this dude is going to be pilloried by the politically correct crowd.

Pygmies are of African ethnicity. Obama is partly African descent.

People like Chris Mathews will say this is racist to say the president is a pygmy. If our MSM picks up this story, it will be branded as a racist attack on the president.

And the MSM will miss the point the writer is trying to make about Obama’s leadership.

I hope they do. Because if they do, they will reveal their own racism against pygmies.

Think about it.

At the risk of sounding trite, this is a certain insult to Pigmies.

Substitute munchkin for pygmy then. The way he strains to lift 5 lb dumb bells, really makes him more of a munchkin anyway.

Not any mere garden-variety pygmy, either. No, sir.

B. Hussein Obama is an intellectually stunted pygmy who makes just his immediate predecessor look like a towering giant in comparison...forget any comparison to Roosevelt, Lincoln, etc.

Heck, he's a pygmy when compared to your average department manager of a J.C. Penny store..

Most everybody else learns how to be a leader even when they don't have much talent for it.

Pygmy although I think the description is sound, if your going to step out on the limb...

Spear Chucking Pygmy would be more descriptive.

Just Saying...
