The arrogance of Obama on display.
I had a little time today to actually watch Obama's sham known as his "Health Care Summit". The Greek columns weren't present nor was the echo chamber. What was also noticeably missing was Obama's trusty Hope & Change 5000 teleprompter deluxe. Maybe it was in the shop being cleaned. Barack has always come off sounding and appearing arrogant and smug. The exchange between Obama and McCain today clearly demonstrates what I've been saying for a long time. Barack Obama is a clear cut megalomaniac. He believes that everything should and does revolve around him.
The true believers of "the one" will never accept the premise that their beloved narcissist is indeed stuck on himself. When Obama said "let me just make this point John, because we are not campaigning anymore, the election is over", two words popped into my head. Those words were "arrogant smuck". McCain for once actually made some valid points and stood up to Obama, but he backed down in his typical sniveling McCain fashion when Obama basically embarrassed him in his response. If I were McCain, I would have handled Obama's response in a completely different "non" John McCain way. I would have told Obama the following
Me as John McCain "We all know that the campaign is over except for you Mr. President. Everyday you campaign against a candidate that you never faced in 2008, that being George W Bush. It has been a little over one year since the election and you are the one who is still stuck in campaign mode. If you know that the campaign is over Mr. President, start governing and stop blaming and smearing others. This is you and your party's 2,000 page bill in front of us that most Americans don't want. Me and my Republican colleagues had nothing to do with the creation of that bill." You are the one who said that the health care negotiations would be on CSPAN". That is your broken promise not ours Mr. President. So don't make this about me, because I didn't put the words in your mouth when you made your promises".
This is why I could never be elected to office. The political class freaked out when Joe Wilson said Obama lied, I can imagine the massive fire storm that would have erupted if I was John McCain and said what I would have if I was him. Barack wouldn't have known how to respond to such a statement, because he is so use to getting his way. Most Americans want the whole health care process started over. Obama frankly doesn't care about what the masses think. Barack thought he was going to simply upstage the Republicans and make them out to be the bad guys in all this. That plan backfired miserably on him and his Democratic colleagues. Note to Obama. The blame Bush cow has been milked beyond dry, and Bush is back in Texas and is a distant memory except to the fringe left. Obama said it himself. The campaign is over, it looks like Obama still isn't ready for the responsibility for the job he campaigned for.
