Now It Can Be Told: Obama Supporters ‘Fear the Potential for Hubris’

Posted by on Feb 12, 2013 at 1:33 pm

The potential for hubris? The potential?!?! You mean until now he’s been demure and unassuming?

Inside the White House and out, advisers and associates have noted subtle but palpable changes in Mr. Obama since his re-election. “He even carries himself a little bit differently,” said one confidant who, like others, asked not to be identified discussing the president. He is relaxed, more voluble and even more confident than usual, these people say, freer to drop profanities or dismiss others’ ideas — enough that even some supporters fear the potential for hubris.

Goodness know it wasn’t his re-election that led to hubris. Anyone recall when he remembered Neil Armstrong by posting an image of himself?


Or when he tweeted about the Rosa Parks’ birthday with a photo of himself?


Nobody considered such egregious acts of megalomania as hubris?

A guy who’d preen like this isn’t already consumed with hubris?

    This just in: Their god bleeds!

    He wrote two autobiographies, complete with composite girlfriends, and they are concerned about the “potential for hubris”? Golly, that’s impressive.

    If you haven’t watched the Dr. Ben Carson speech on YouTube by now, go do it. Here’s a dude who’s risen from far lower station than Zero ever had to far higher achievement than Zero will ever attain and you can tell Zero knows it. Arrogant fuck keeps his nose in the air for almost all the good doctor’s speech. Even if you don’t care for Carson’s overt Christianity, there’s no question he carries himself with more dignity and humility than Barry. Off course the long knives are already out for Carson from the oh-so-tolerant-inclusive left.
