Obama has to know that such arrogance isn’t exactly attractive. So at the same time that he obsesses on his world-historical importance, he also tries to let everyone know how humble he is. The same day Jeff posted his emotional outpouring at the Obama website, for instance, the campaign put out a fundraising email quoting the President as saying, “This isn’t about me or the outcome of one election.”
What is it about? The fate of democracy, naturally. (The grandiosity goes nicely with the egomania.) In the fateful upcoming election “we’ll learn whether it’s still true that a grassroots campaign can elect a president — whether ordinary Americans are in control of our democracy in the face of massive spending.”
It’s simply laughable when the President of the United States poses as a champion of the little guy “in the face of massive spending” when he himself has spent more than any leader in the history of humanity.
Thus far, the American people have been willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt on his little ego problem. He’s still more popular than Mitt Romney personally. The American public seems inclined to give him a break and regard his awkward self obsession as a foible that can be overlooked. But as the economy continues to struggle, and as Obama continues to blame others and target Mitt Romney’s offshore bank accounts, his unshakeable faith in himself is going to start to wear thin.
