Peggy Noonan, always interesting had this to say about the narcissism of Barack Obama. Considering that his programs are not working, Peggy said,
It is one thing to think you’re Lebron. It’s another thing to keep missing the basket and losing games and still think you’re Lebron.
That’s our President. The Democratic Party has gone far astray from the days when the Party’s President kept a sign right on his desk that read “The Buck Stops Here” and he took that very seriously. In case you are too young to remember who that was, here’s a clue or two. His adult daughter played the piano and the President lived with his wife in a very modest home smack in the middle of that now disdainful fly-over country. Mr. Barack H. Obama is the very antithesis of Harry S. Truman.
From Caroline Glick, denouncing the Dunham sex ad designed to appeal to young voters with the message that voting is like a woman giving up her virginity; it should be done with the right man and that man should be Barack Obama, Glick’s response is:
It is demeaning and contemptuous of women. It reduces us to sexual objects. When called on to vote, as far as Obama is concerned, as slaves to our passions, we make our decisions not based on our capacity for rational choice. Rather we choose our leaders solely on the basis of our sexual desires.
Beyond the ad’s bald attempt to impersonalize, generalize and cheapen the most personal act human beings engage in, the ad is repulsive because it takes for granted that what happens in our private lives is the government’s business.
That’s our President. Here is one more snippet from elsewhere.
“Did you see what President Obama said today? He asked his supporters to vote for revenge — for revenge,” Romney said. “Instead I ask the American people to vote for love of country.”
That’s our next President. How refreshing. It is a breath of fresh air coming out of a world of pollution.
