Obama's Lack of Ordinary Modesty

Obama's Lack of Ordinary Modesty
By James Lewis


In his victory speech over Hillary, Barack Obama soared rhetorically about his feelings of humility. And yet he hardly
sounded humble:

"Generations from now...
we will be able to look back and tell our children (with mounting excitement)


that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick, and good jobs for the jobless.

This was the moment...
when the riiiiise of the oceans began to slow,
and our planet began to heal."
[bolding added]

Now politicians are allowed some rhetorical overkill, but this is straight into Star Wars territory. There are no real precedents for this in traditional American speechifying, and that is saying something. Obama tells his hypnotized followers that we have not been caring for the sick (false); that we have no good jobs for the jobless (false); that the rise of the oceans (which doesn't exist) will begin to slow (false); and that our planet (which is feeling just fine, thanks) will finally begin to heal. (Also false).

So this is pure drivel from the deep regions of fantasyland. But Obama's brain dead followers are marching right in lockstep. They are a million Weekend at Bernie's, with millions of flatlining Obamanites being propped up to look as if they were alive and conscious. It's the Million Man March of the brain dead.

This election will pit the mind-numbed robots against sensible voters. Who is the majority? That's not clear at all at this point.

Obama deliberately plays to the lowbrow crowd; after all, half the population has an IQ of less than 100. This hardly shows Obama's modesty and humility of which he boasts in his first sentence. It is wild-eyed I Can Save the Planet grandiosity. This appears to be the real Obama; a Napoleonic Man of Destiny, with the zeal and certainty of a True Believer.

This rookie is definitely full of himself. I don't think he has a chance.

Whoa, there, Wilbur. I thought that he was playing to the latte-sipping elitists of the "creative class." Since when is that "the lowbrow crowd?"
