Krauthammer Skewers The Arrogance Of Obama

The omniscient, omnipotent Obama One has built a massive cultlike movement of swooning masses where he is able to heal all that ails this world just by electing him. Charles Krauthammer has a must read column on the arrogance of a man that essentially has accomplished nothing in his life and thinks he can makes the oceans recede. Yeah he graduated from Harvard and was president of its esteemed Law Review but he did not author one article for it and has not published one scholarly paper ever. Obama did write two books all about the one topic he cares or knows anything about, himself, as Charles points out.

It is a subject upon which he can dilate effortlessly. In his victory speech upon winning the nomination, Obama declared it a great turning point in history -- "generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment" -- when, among other wonders, "the rise of the oceans began to slow." As economist Irwin Stelzer noted in his London Daily Telegraph column, "Moses made the waters recede, but he had help." Obama apparently works alone.

Obama may think he's King Canute, but the good king ordered the tides to halt precisely to refute sycophantic aides who suggested that he had such power. Obama has no such modesty.

Do read the whole thing as it gets better and better.

Plus on a related note Obama's latest gaffe is another doozy showing how little grasp of history he has. This one is from a recent speech in Indiana.

Throughout our history, America’s confronted constantly evolving danger, from the oppression of an empire, to the lawlessness of the frontier, from the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor, to the threat of nuclear annihilation. Americans have adapted to the threats posed by an ever-changing world.

Now if I recall my history correctly it wasn't a single bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor but two massive waves of fighters and bombers dropping hundreds of bombs and torpedos. Can you imagine the brougha the MSM would be making if John McCain or George Bush said something so stupid but Obama is going to free the world of nuclear weapons and stop the oceans from rising while curing all the sick so the press will ignore it. The gaffe is in the opening remarks of this speech, courtesy of Cap'n Ed.

Yet he wants to cripple our defense abilities. The man is not fit to be Commander in Chief.

"Oppression of an empire". Which empire is Mr. Obama talking about, England?

He does not seem to know very much on the Second World War. Maybe he should have spent more time with his alleged uncle.

What would surprise me is if this man didn't say something stupid!

People who vote for him deserve him, but where does that leave those of us who don't deserve him?
