    Could We Have Done Any Worse Than We Did?

    Could We Have Done Any Worse Than We Did?

    For some reason the words in the title to this post came to me in reading Charles Krauthammer’s column, The selective modesty of Barack Obama.

    Obama is not the first president with a large streak of narcissism. But the others had equally expansive feelings about their country. Obama’s modesty about America would be more understandable if he treated himself with the same reserve. What is odd is to have a president so convinced of his own magnificence — yet not of his own country’s.

    I seem to have heard something similar before.  If only I could remember where:

    Barack Obama also is the deep thinker who ponders great things. And the thing that Barack Obama seems to ponder most is his own greatness. He doesn’t write biographies, he writes only autobiographies. He gives speeches which he declares to be historic. He recognizes his place in history long before he has created history. This nation is but a stage upon which Barack Obama creates his life story, and it’s all about him.

    The answer to the question is:  No.

    You've gotten to the primary reason I kept telling people not to vote for Obama. I said that running for ever higher office, voting present, publishing books about himself, in short the focus of his entire life was on self aggrandizement. I said a man like that has neither the experience or the interest to be a good president.

    This is one of those times when I would rather have been wrong.

    If ONLY there had been a better choice for president! If ONLY there had been someone with tons of experience, who had done tons of networking, who was dedicated to this country, who had a list of accomplishments as long as your arm, who …

    Oh yeah. Right. There were. TWO OF THEM.

    That was a wonderful article when I read it two years ago, and it clearly stands the test of time.

    @Andy: Our country's Constitution is only as strong as those willing to defend it.

    "He doesn't write biographies, he writes only autobiographies. He gives speeches which he declares to be historic. He recognizes his place in history long before he has created history. This nation is but a stage upon which Barack Obama creates his life story, and it's all about him."

    Maybe he really wanted to be the star of one of those Dos Equis commercials… "The Most Interesting Man In The World", and all that…
