I recently came across this most interesting article by Ben Shapiro I am posting below. He’s a smart young kid who works for Breitbart .com. Also check out the most interesting responses. 😉
According to President Obama, he’s a historic figure. That’s no figure of speech. This week, journalist Seth Mandel discovered that President Obama had authorized his staff to add his name to the biographies of former presidents from Calvin Coolidge to George W. Bush on the White House website.
For example, Calvin Coolidge, it now states at WhiteHouse.gov, created the Federal Radio Commission; President Obama “became the first president to hold virtual gatherings and town halls using Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, etc.” Franklin D. Roosevelt created Social Security; President Obama says FDR’s biography “continues to protect seniors and ensure Social Security will be there for future generations.” Lincoln ended the Civil War; Obama once thought about growing a beard. All other presidents, apparently, were just placeholders until The Big Fella arrived.
This massive sense of ego has led Obama to the inevitable conclusion that his is the only opinion that matters. If he is the culmination of Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy and Dwight D. Eisenhower, then he is also the culmination of all moral thought for the last several thousand years. He can singlehandedly declare same-sex marriage moral — and what’s more, he can fundraise off of it like nobody’s business. If religious institutions had thought to back same-sex relationships millennia ago, just think how full their coffers would be now.
The swooning media has feted Obama for his bravery. Newsweek placed a rainbow halo around his head and christened him “The First Gay President,” which should surely come as a shock to Michelle. Members of “The View” oohed and aahed at him, with Joy Behar leering so sycophantically that it was a wonder she didn’t lose a layer of her pancake makeup on his posterior. Obama, we’ve been told, has evolved; those who haven’t evolved alongside him are now a stage of evolution behind. Thus, the awkward spectacle of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews lecturing a black pastor that he hoped would “evolve” — a statement that would certainly get any non-liberal kicked off the air forthwith and with good reason.
And, of course, nobody was prouder of Obama than Obama himself. His campaign website now features baby clothing emblazoned with the slogan “My Two Dads Support Barack Obama.” His campaign team has sent out emails asking for cash that make it sound as if Obama just achieved world peace. Never mind that children need a mother and a father — Obama spoke, and the world was changed.
Obama’s ego has disconnected him from everyday Americans. He seems bewildered as to why less and less Americans are interested when he slow jams the news on Jimmy Fallon; he seems confused when Americans laugh at his campaign trotting out a “composite woman” to tout his record. He’s getting desperate; and he’s getting angry.
Worse, he’s getting more and more insulated. He has already fundraised with George Clooney and Ricky Martin; in June, he’ll fundraise at the house of Ryan Murphy, despicable creator of indoctrination entertainment show “Glee.” He’s charging $15,000 for photos with him, even as he complains about the disconnect between the 1 percent and the 99 percent. He’s somehow finding a way to turn Mitt Romney into a populist.
Obama’s arrogance would be amusing were it not so insanely dangerous. When it comes to the world stage, it is Obama’s perverse self-assurance that he can right all wrongs merely by talking at them that has doomed much of the Middle East to generations of darkness. When it comes to domestic policy, it is Obama’s egotistic belief that he knows best and that Americans are simply ignorant, which has led him to embrace radical causes ranging from nationalization of health care to drilling moratoria.
The American people are an open-minded and tolerant people. But we don’t take kindly to being ordered about by a man with a monarchic mind. If Obama doesn’t check his ego at the door, he’s going to find the door hitting him on the way out.

Our Democrat Messiah President can not only walk on water, but must believe when he dies he, like Michael Jackson, will be able to moon walk on the lake of fire. It will be the only kind of moon walking Americans will ever do again until this President gets defeated and American Exceptionalism again reigns supreme over American entitlement and imaginary unearned self worth. for which our President is the new Poster Child of entitlement to that illusionary success that is always promised but never happens in the real world of Democrat Party leadership.
Perhaps if Obama had just one dad that supported him, we would not be stuck with two dads that support Obama and a government that constantly wants to support us with other people’s redistributed honest money.. The sins of the father are indeed visited upon the children to the 3rd and 4th generation, who grow up to visit them upon US the people when they become Democrat leaders.
If “It’s not over till the Fat Lady Sings” This Presidential Diva’s never ending campaign song should have ended it for him years ago. Let leadership finally replace showmanship in November, and let productive men who work for their supper become our leaders instead of entitlement Diva’s who can only sing for their supper.
There is no honor in the White House. Just an egomaniac. He’s not even half the president that Jimmy was. He is the worst choice ever made by free people in history.
IMPEACH OBAMA NOW! ! ! !
Hail, Obama. The King has arrived.
“All you peasants bow to me now or there will huge consequences after I am elected” must be going through BO’s mind every day which is why he sometimes “forget” that the country is in a recession.
I must make sure that I have gallons of Frankincense and Myrrh ready to annoit his feet.
What an arrogrant in competent egomaniac

In my wildest dreams I couldn’t have imagined a more pompous, rude, and arrogant guy could occupy the Oval Office. This guy tops every megalomaniac I’ve ever seen in my half century on Earth!

When a person who has been chosen and groomed for years to move into politics by the socialist/communist activist groups that have been plotting for years to undermine our capitalistic country, there is a certain mindset that can develop. It is like a child who’s parents continually tell them how smart and talented they are and that they have exceptional skills that exceed everyone else, and therefore, the child actually believes they are better then others and expect to have things their way.
Obama has been brainwashed to believe that he is smarter then his contemporaries and therefore it is his responsibility to make the changes necessary to “fix” this country acting in the best interests of the country at large. He actually believes he is the “chosen one” that has been empowered by being elected President, to “transform” our country into the socialist state he has been brainwashed to believe is where the future of the country is destined to be.
It is obvious that he is misguided and is attempting to force this country down a path totally contrary to our heritage and a path which is inconsistent with the economic model that has made our country the wealthiest, the most powerful, and the envy of the world.
He is so wrapped up into his egotistical self centered image and role of himself in our country and the world at large that it is impossible for him to even consider that his policies are not working. He will not accept real data that confirms his economic and fiscal policies are not working. He cannot believe that most Americans are against his healthcare legislation. He cannot believe that most Americans are not buying into his incoherent national energy policies or his obsession with draconian cuts to our military. He cannot believe that we expect our government to actually live within the revenue being collected nd to stop this uncontrolled borrowing and spending, etc.
Someone with a built in narcisstic mindset like he has never believes he has made a mistake, and therefore, tends to be unable to accept criticism and learn from mistakes. He has demonstrated his inability to compromise and work with others which is a major character flaw.
He actually believes he is above the law and therefore can do whatever he thinks is right regardless of the contradictions created against existing laws by his actions, thus the numerous policies and regulations being implemented through executive order and backdoor moves bypassing Congress.
President Obama is a loose cannon and an extremely dangerous person to be our President and leader of the free world. He MUST be replaced in November
