Obama is astonishingly arrogant, even for a President of the United States. FoxNews.com:
In a seeming twist on the post-1994 midterm calculation made by President Bill Clinton — when Republicans pummeled Democrats in the congressional election — Obama said he thinks Republicans will have to move in his direction no matter the outcome of the Nov. 2 vote.
“It may be that regardless of what happens after this election, they feel more responsible,” he is quoted saying in the Sunday edition of The New York Times Magazine, “either because they didn’t do as well as they anticipated, and so the strategy of just saying no to everything and sitting on the sidelines and throwing bombs didn’t work for them, or they did reasonably well, in which case the American people are going to be looking to them to offer serious proposals and work with me in a serious way.”
You really need to read the whole thing. Guess who’s responsible for all his problems? You! And you, and you, and you. Also you over there. This is exactly the message that the leader of the Democrats needs to be sending, three weeks before an election that has even Massholes chomping at the bit to vote Republican.
Obama keeps going with his gut, but his gut is always wrong. If he had any sense, which is a big “if,” he’d start using the George Costanza Method:
Not that Obama is unfamiliar with opposites. He likes to say the opposite of what actually exists in consensus reality:
Another regret expressed by the president was his failure to communicate effectively. Obama said he and his team took “perverse pride” in focusing only on policy while ignoring the sales pitch to the public.
He said he realizes now that “you can’t be neglecting of marketing and PR and public opinion.”
This will be very persuasive to any American who hasn’t lived through the past 22 months, and didn’t see Obama make 54 speeches on Obamacare alone. Yet he still feels like he can say anything he wants, no matter how ridiculous, and people will believe it because he’s the one saying it.
