Was checking the local newspaper and was appalled to see the Virgin Ben on the op-ed pages:
Third, Obama’s childhood shows us that he was always a narcissist concerned with his own power. Not only did he want to be president, he thought the presidency was all about him. Soldiers were there for defending him; businessmen were there for supporting him. Presidents were kings. That’s why he wanted to be president.
The other day, one of the stooges at Tucker Carlon’s vanity project was calling Obama the “Narcissist in Chief,” and now a Weekly Standard flunky is out with the following:
Why has Barack Obama failed so spectacularly? Is he too dogmatically liberal or too pragmatic? Is he a socialist, or an anticolonialist, or a philosopher-president? Or is it possible that Obama’s failures stem from something simpler: vanity. Politicians as a class are particularly susceptible to mirror-gazing. But Obama’s vanity is overwhelming. It defines him, his politics, and his presidency.
The title of the piece is “American Narcissus,” and like the Virgin Ben, it quotes from his books to draw a deeper, more sinster meaning that all the rest of us missed.
Do they coordinate these memes? Or is there just a rotating file of bullshit and sometimes it just seems like they are coordinating.
