Obama: “It’s Jesus Christ, Gandhi, Mandela and me” [Reader Post]

                                       

Not long ago Barack Obama revealed to Steve Kroft that he saw himself as a President of historic proportions- behind only Lyndon Johnson, FDR and Abraham Lincoln.

“The issue here is not going be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history.

The malignant narcissism that infects Obama is metastasizing and growing. He now sees himself as part of the pantheon of worldly historical personalities:

“The civil rights movement was hard. Winning the vote for women was hard. Making sure that workers had some basic protections was hard,” President Obama said at a fundraiser while talking about how difficult it is to bring about “change” in politics.

“Around the world, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, what they did was hard. It takes time. It takes more than a single term. It takes more than a single president. It takes more than a single individual,” Obama said.

“What it takes is ordinary citizens who keep believe, who are committed to fighting and pushing and inching this country closer and closer to our highest ideals. And I said in 2008, ‘that I am not a perfect man and I will not be a perfect president.’ But I promised you, but I promised you, I promised you back then that I would always tell you what I believe. I would always tell you where I stood,” he also said at a fundraiser in NYC.

I am not certain about the order listed above. I mean, Jesus never got a Nobel Prize, did he?

    Dr J,

    This post makes no sense and is beyond dishonest. First off (this is just basic integrity) you shouldn’t use quotes around a sentence that you made up and attributed to someone. That’s lying. Secondly, nothing that Obama said is even remotely close to the credit grad you imply. Did you even read the quotes you posted? He said ” It takes time. It takes more than a single term. It takes more than a single president. It takes more than a single individual,”. Be honest, did you do this in five minutes? FA must really be desperate for copy.

    One thing Brietbart and Obama have in common is that neither one will rise again after three days.

    “A haughty spirit comes before the fall”! He’s becoming quite cocky these days and overreaching. All his promises have expiration dates.
    By the way, english is my 2nd language, but man-o-man, does he stutter, or did his telepromptor break down. Reading what he said is that of a 3rd grader.

    It’s paraphrasing. And it’s saying nothing more than what’s in Obama’s head. I have never in my life seen anyone as overtly narcissistic as Obama. He puts himself before Washington and Jefferson.

    Good God, man.

    Let’s give credit for what Obama has accomplished. Unfortunately, all of the accomplishments are hurting the USA, and even causing the USA major problems. So, Obama has accomplished a lot. Most of it destructive.

    Remember how he received the Nobel Peace prize? The nominations closed 10-11 days after he was president, so he must have done a lot in those few days. I guess if he can get a Nobel Peace prize in a few days, he can end the world’s problem in just a few years.

    You won’t find very many conservatives saying ANYTHING bad about a liberal a few days after they die or are in the hospital. I can’t remember any conservative wishing any liberal would die. Not so with your group. Over the years I have heard many liberals wish a conservative dead or were glad when they died.

    How would you feel if one of your loved ones dies and others started telling you haw glad they are they died and all the things they didn’t like about them.

    Maybe there should be an agreed time of morning allowed after someone dies before anyone starts rejoicing in their death or hospitalization. Would you go along with such a mourning time? If so, how long?

    Please people, let’s give credit where credit is due. Obama promised us energy prices would skyrocket, and they have. Thank you Mr Obama, you should remind Americans of your foremost accomplishment, for without ring energy prices we wouldn’t have the cost of living prices continuing to rise. Americans can be so ungrateful and short sighted. Without you redistributing America’s wealth around the world and to Mr. Soros’ bank accounts the world would never achieve parity. How warn and wonderful it is to know that you have the best interests of the world’s peasants and particularly the world’s despots in mind while you continually destroy the wealth of America to enrich others. You are indeed a very special man who deserves recognition, for without your direction, incompetence, and hatred of America, where would we be; certainly we wouldn’t be hovering over economic collapse. You are right, it takes longer than four years to completely break down a country as strong as America, but with a second term, you should be able to complete your mission, with your faux-Socialism that is nothing more than a method to destroy America to enrich others. You have engendered more discord and hatred than anyone in their century other than the man you shot with pocket pistol and now, you are in receivership of the most hated man in America, and that is an accomplishment in itself. Yes, look in the mirror and be proud, you have accomplished things that few other men would have tried or wanted to try.

    Notice how he never espouses what those “highest ideals” actually are, in his mind? This is just more platitudes from Obama, empty rhetoric with nothing that folks can hang their hat on as far as ideas and leadership are concerned. It is easy to talk of change when you never say what kind of change you are striving for.

    I didn’t know very much about Breitbart. I went to one or two of his blogs once-in-a-while. Anyone who puts down anyone right after their death loses a lot of my respect. Kennedy was a drain on society, but the family deserves a grieving time when they are left alone. The conservatives do a much better job of this than the liberals.

    @riseyoufools: Before you climb down off your high horse and break your arm patting yourself on the back for your wildly inaccurate, inflammatory statements, try to learn to spell.

    live·li·hood
       [lahyv-lee-hood]
    noun
    a means of supporting one’s existence, especially financially or vocationally; living: to earn a livelihood as a tenant farmer.

    I don’t think he has figured out what the dotted red line under a word means. I can’t fault anyone on their spelleng. I see more of those “underlined” words than I want to. What’s really frustratin is when I can’t spell the word close enough in the dictonary for it to display the right word in the list of words it displays.

    See what I did there? That is called “attribution.” The mix up is what happens when you use other folks’ words without giving said attribution. Notice that I correctly attributed your comments so that others who read this will know it came from your confused brain.

    But beyond that, you’re admitting that you have to rely on others’ comments to make your points?

    Interesting.

    You visit here, barely read the content, drop a few insults and then wrap it up with an ass-kissing comment to your obvious hero, Obama.

    No, I won’t call Ms. Beezy a dumbass, in fact I didn’t call you one. Others did and I will admit I agree with their assessment.

    When I was a truck driver, I joined an organization called Trucker Buddy. It matched drivers up with grade school teachers. The kids and I wrote each other. I mostly used my laptop. I upgraded one time and my word processor had the first spell checker I ever had. I couldn’t believe how many four and five letter words I was misspelling.

    I was typing in a letter, and a message appeared that said, “You don’t normally start a sentence with the word And.” I didn’t know that. I thought it over for a short time, and figured I wanted a longer pause than a comma would give, so I Wrote it my way anyway.

    When I got my next batch of letters from the kids, the first sentence from one of them was, “You don’t normally start a sentence with the word And.” The exact words the the Lotus spell checker had. My first thought was that here is a 5th grader telling me how to write. GREAT!!!

    I didn’t learn what adjectives or adverbs were until Mad Libs came out. The public school I went to let me just slide through with my ambition to get out of school. That was my goal, and I made it.

    I’m not referring to you, but I have a problem with people who put others down because of their looks. The liberals love to do this, but I have heard or read conservatives that do it too if they don’t like the person. Why condemn someone because they didn’t get to choose to look as good as the other person wants them to.

    Cut-and-paste means you have deleted the text, then pasted it. Copy-and-paste is what you meant. The hyphens between the letters are optional. I’ve been calling it that for many years and still do some times. The only reason I mentioned it is if you tell someone to cut-and-paste something, they will delete that item from where it was if they don’t know what you meant.

    @Smorgasbord: Great story! My WWII Veteran Father drove a truck for Ashland Oil for over 25 years because it had excellent health insurance which paid for nearly all of my many, many health care expenses related to my heart condition. He always said that when he retired he was going to take his pension in the form of one of Ashland’s trucks, park it in his backyard and throw rocks at it all day! (I’ve always loved that joke!)

    My Uncle on my Father’s side was a Greyhound bus driver before they busted the unions there and my older brother was also a truck driver, so truckers are near and dear to my heart.

    When I reply to folks online, here at FA and at the Conservative site I am an administrator on, I try to have a modicum of restraint. However there are times when my patience runs thin and I use my wit and sarcasm to get my point across.

    Hey, it’s fun sometimes, too. =D

    I have to watch my temper too. That’s why a lot of times I don’t wrestle with a pig in the mud and I end the conversation with the liberals that like to argue. If I comment to or about a liberal, it is much more fun just to play around with them like a cat does a mouse. It is even more relaxing.
