The Madness of King Barack

The more I read the columns of Charles Krauthammer, the more he cements his place on my must-read list. This week, he writes of the fact that Barack Obama's arrogance is beginning to show. You should do yourself a favor and click here to read the entire column, but here is an excerpt to wet your whistle:
Americans are beginning to notice Obama's elevated opinion of himself. There's nothing new about narcissism in politics. Every senator looks in the mirror and sees a president. Nonetheless, has there ever been a presidential nominee with a wider gap between his estimation of himself and the sum total of his lifetime achievements?

Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted "present" nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself.

It is a subject upon which he can dilate effortlessly. In his victory speech upon winning the nomination, Obama declared it a great turning point in history -- "generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment" -- when, among other wonders, "the rise of the oceans began to slow." As Hudson Institute economist Irwin Stelzer noted in his London Daily Telegraph column, "Moses made the waters recede, but he had help." Obama apparently works alone.
Good Day to You, Sir

The "messiah" is an empty suit who thinks he will be in charge for "eight to ten years."

Thanks for the head's up on this great article. It sickens me how so many people are taken in by this fool. And Don, American, your empty suit comment is right on target.

If he was a king...he would be like the king in the movie "The Great Race. What a mook he is.
