Former Obama Aide: “He Really Doesn’t Like People”

That’s because he’s smarter than them and better at everything. Just ask him.

Clinton, being Clinton, had plenty of advice in mind and was desperate to impart it. But for the first two years of Obama’s term, the phone calls Clinton kept expecting rarely came. “People say the reason Obama wouldn’t call Clinton is because he doesn’t like him,” observes Tanden. “The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people. My analogy is that it’s like becoming Bill Gates without liking computers.”

It’s not as if he respects people.

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Mr. Obama told Patrick Gaspard, his political director, at the start of the 2008 campaign, according to The New Yorker. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

So I guess he’ll blame himself when he gets crushed in three weeks.

    Obama will NEVER blame himself for anything unless it’s to make himself look better.

    Well it is pretty clear he does not like or respect people. He is cold, calculating, and unfeeling. But, he should be happy to note that more and more people are taking to not liking or respecting him either. Works for me.

    He’s a machination. This shouldn’t be surprising. Sad and disturbing yes, but not surprising.

    He’s a user. That’s what he was in his stupid books, too. The guy’s got 2 memoirs – 2 of ’em – and both of them were put out before he got into the White House. Who the hell thinks they’re so special that they write 2 memoirs at his age?

    Devil’s advocate here for a second. Maybe he’s a sexual assault victim. Look at what he’s married too. That can’t be a pleasant thing to do your business with. Ugh.

    Personally, I’m not all that crazy about most politicians, especially Democrats, and Obama is the worst of a really bad bunch.
