It should come as a surprise to no one that Obama (okay, President Barack Hussein Obama) is totally mesmerized by the sound of his own voice. He is his own Pied Piper.
He would far rather listen to himself pontificate in front of a hand-selected audience of psicko-fants than do almost anything else. Running a very close second to listening to his own voice, would be – mincing down the stairs of Air Force One as he arrives at an exotic destination, saluting the Marine guards like a girly-man and racing off toward his caravan of SUVs, accompanied by a widely-smiling, highly-animated Air Force officer chosen for the job because of his (or her) ability to make sucking sounds while on the run.
Don’t get me wrong, I have the highest respect for the Office of the President. But, I do genuinely long for the good ‘ol days when I felt the same degree of respect for the person holding that office. When the gawky Charmer-in-Chief bounds onto a stage in front of one of the aforementioned, hand-picked audiences that have been pre-qualified and indoctrinated under threat of ‘consequences’ for not emoting according to the ‘Code of Prescribed Response to the Utterings of The One’ – he is a sight to behold. His affected, ‘Hard-working-Everyman’ appearance as evidenced by his rolled-up shirtsleeves and missing necktie, is calculated in his mind at least, to give the impression that he is, ‘one of us’. Just a regular Joe Biden, kinda guy.
Well, we all know the truth, don’t we? Obama is the top-of-the-line prime example of Narcissism Gone Wild, on steroids. He is nonpareil. He has no equal in the self-love department. He lives and breathes to hear the sound of his own voice. It is food and drink to him. The subject matter of his spewing forth, the content of the message – - none of that matters a whit. He exists only to pontificate. Ergo, masturbation by pontification.
Hey, everybody is entitled to enjoy a hobby. But in November, let’s hire a guy with a work ethic whose hobby is creation, not destruction. Someone who understands the bottom line as opposed to someone who only understands how to flap his gums while working a ‘rope line’.
