Hubris and narcissism defined
Berry recounted meetings with White House officials, reminiscent of some during the Clinton days, where he and others urged them not to force Blue Dogs “off into that swamp” of supporting bills that would be unpopular with voters back home.
“I’ve been doing that with this White House, and they just don’t seem to give it any credibility at all,” Berry said. “They just kept telling us how good it was going to be. The president himself, when that was brought up in one group, said, ‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’ We’re going to see how much difference that makes now.”
Oh. My. God. We've got him now, and we're supposed to trip over ourselves because the Narcissist-in-Chief is in DC, and he's going to work hard to get this crap sandwich passed? Are you frelling kidding me?
Someone want to point out his approval numbers aren't exactly spectacular? This is the man who said he'd rather be a good one-term president rather than a mediocre two-term president, so the mirror on the wall is telling him the truth that he's being far too narcissistic on this issue (and a whole host of others.)
If Bill Clinton, who didn't have his first-term poll numbers drop through the floor like Barry's have, couldn't get this passed then where in the Hell does Barry see he can pass this on his persona alone? Self-important people like Barry think that their charisma alone can get the job done. Too bad the American people don't share his idealism. We've seen what the Congress wants to hand us in this health insurance "reform" and we're not happy with it. We're downright ticked about it. We don't believe that this will reform anything that will affect us, and it's more likely it'll be a severe detriment to our lives.
But Barry, and Nancy, and Harry are dead set on feeding us this crap sandwich. Just like our moms used to feed us that revolting, nasty cough syrup before bed when we were sick, all on the auspice that we'd get better. Well, we didn't know then that something so disgusting could make us better. And now he wants us to believe what he wants to ram down our throats is going to make our health care better. He's lying, of course, but that's not stopping him. He's dead-set on an agenda that will do this nation more harm than good, and he thinks he can make us take this on charisma alone.
Newsflash, Barry: You aren't our moms. The cough syrup you're trying to feed us not only tastes like crap, but we know bloody well that it's not going to help us. It's going to hurt us; Hell, it's going to screw us. That's why we don't want it. A smart politician would recognize that. So now we know that not only are you narcissistic, but you're a dumb @$$ to boot.
