Victor Davis Hanson:
"Obama in just twenty months has developed a reputation for being petulant, unusually sensitive to the normal run-of-the-mill criticism. His latest pushback was his strangest so far: 'And they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, it’s just — but it’s true.'
Given that Obama has previously called out talk radio critics by name — Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh — attacked everything from limb-lopping surgeons to vacationing at Las Vegas, and in condescending fashion tsk-tsked those who attend Glen Beck rallies, rural Pennsylvanians, and his own 'typical white person' grandmother who raised him, his thin-skin touchiness seems inexplicable.
...But enough speculation over motives for the origins of Obama’s strange and growing petulance. All that matters for the country is that the current president of the United States seems surprised that as our chief executive he is earning scrutiny not previously accorded him — and that he finds that demand for accountability both exasperating and abjectly unfair. Thus this week’s latest “like a dog” whine.
For some reason, Obama believed that those who expected after his campaign promises a real upturn in the economy, or fiscal responsibility, or inspired foreign policy would be satisfied, as they had in the past, merely with soaring rhetoric and superficial reassurance. When they were not, and voiced such displeasure, as ingrates they had supposedly reduced Obama to canine-like status."
Barack Obama is the perpetual campaigner, constantly seeking the ego reinforcement that feeds his undeserved arrogance.
Despite the constant effort, his immense failure, gross malfeasance, and utter incompetency as the President of the United States of America becomes more evident by the minute. the coninuing judgment of the american people is obvious, as is the coming slaughter to be inflicted November 2 on his partisan minions in Congress.
