Outstanding post from another message board. Obama has to be full of himself. What other sitting president had schools named after him before he even finished his term? The City of Pittsburgh renamed one of their public schools, "Obama Academy" shortly after the One got elected president.
Barack Obama has never had to actually accomplish anything in his life. Mitt Romney clobbered him in last night's debate because he called Obama out on his total lack of accomplishment in his four years as president of the United States. Obama was stymied, stumped, and pissed off because no one had ever done that to him before in his whole life.
All his life guilty white liberals have carried Obama around like an egg on a pillow. At Harvard Law he was chosen editor of the Law Review without ever having written a single article. As a senator in the Illinois legislator, his main accomplishment was voting "present." Yet he became a candidate for the presidency as the darling of white elites-- in academia, in the media, in Hollywood and in the business world. His appearances with Greek columns, proclaiming that he would lower the sea levels and heal the planet, while members of the audience fainted, will be seen as the most bizarre manifestation of racism in modern times: the black man as an idol for worship to expunge guilt.
Almost immediately upon entering office he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. For what, exactly? For...well, nothing. For being what Joe Biden had called a "clean, articulate black man." Obama never had to actually do anything. He just had to be and all doors opened for him, all rewards were heaped upon him.
When Brian Williams bowed to him in a well known video clip, he was not saying, "You are a great man, therefore I bow to you." He was saying "I am a great man, therefore I bow to you."
For more than 50 years, the word "white" has been stigmatized. It is now almost an insult. "White" and "racist" are almost equivalent in the vocabulary of liberals. Obama has been their way of distancing themselves from the shame of whiteness. And so it was for the millions of whites who voted for Obama simply because he was black.
Last night we saw the result of all this. Mitt Romney treated Obama as a true equal. He held him responsible for what he has done and failed to do. He looked him in the eye-- or would have if Obama dared to look up-- and said, "What have you done, Mr. President? Look at all the damage you have done by misguided action and failure to act. How can you defend yourself?" Obama never heard that in his life. He expected something like McCain's puling "I'm sure Mr. Obama would make an excellent president." Instead he faced a man who took him seriously, took him on as a equal, and held him to account. And Obama folded.
For Obama, it's pathetic. For America, it is tragic that this completely unqualified buffoon is in the Oval Office, having been carefully and delicately placed there upon a velvet pillow by white liberal racists.
