Oh my stars, this is just delusional narcissism on steroids.
“When I think about what we’ve done well and what we haven’t done well,” the president said, “the mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”
Tell a story? Tell a story? Holy geez, this guy’s entire goddamn existence is one big story (composite, of course), and he wants to lament that his biggest failure is not making up some grandiose vision of what’s really going on? Hey, while you were fuck*ng golfing and making basketball picks the last four years our economy has been in the crapper. Your entire presidency is one huge, tragic joke. And America is suffering because of it.
How about telling that story?
This cat is beyond hopeless.
And just look at that lemon-sucking death glare from the Tower of Glower. Now that’s the look of a woman deprived of her annual Martha’s Vineyard binge, and she doesn’t look too pleased.
Update: Romney responds to this idiocy.
President Obama believes that millions of Americans have lost their homes, their jobs and their livelihood because he failed to tell a good story. Being president is not about telling stories. Being president is about leading, and President Obama has failed to lead. No wonder Americans are losing faith in his presidency.
