Narcissus Unbound

Just when you thought the ego and fawning could get no worse, well, it’s always all about The One

Many of President Obama’s fervent devotees are young enough not to have much memory of the political world before the arrival of The One. Coincidentally, Obama himself feels the same way—and the White House’s official website reflects that.

The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted that Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s official biography on, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick. My first thought was, he must be joking. But he wasn’t—it turns out Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford).

It beggars belief.

As he beggars our nation.

President John F. Kennedy famously suggested the American people: “Ask what you can do for your country.” In 1961, the Peace Corps was created, facilitating service among citizens working toward peace in developing countries. In 2011, President Obama celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps with a Presidential Proclamation.

President Dwight Eisenhower established the President’s Council on Youth Fitness on July 16, 1956 (now known as The President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports) after learning from a study that American youth were less fit than European youth. Today the Council is still going strong—with Olympians and professional athletes on board—working in conjunction with the First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiativeto help promote healthier lifestyles.

Continuing his work as a lifelong public service, Clinton created the Clinton Foundation in 2001 to improve global health, education, economies and environments. Affectionately calling him “Do-Gooder-in-Chief”, President Obama has worked with Clinton to make buildings in our country more efficient—announcing a $4 billion investment in energy efficiency upgrades for commercial buildings.

In a 1946 letter to the National Urban League, President Truman wrote that the government has “an obligation to see that the civil rights of every citizen are fully and equally protected.” He ended racial segregation in civil service and the armed forces in 1948. Today the Obama Administration continues to strive toward upholding the civil rights of its citizens, repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, allowing people of all sexual orientations to serve openly in our armed forces.

    Staggeringly stupid and immature. The worst is that there are people who buy this crap. And they vote.

  2. Dan Collins says:

    He beggars belief, it’s true. He also buggers it, which is worse.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Well that was my first thought but I’m too delicate to put that on the front page.

  4. Syd B. says:

    He forgot to mention his extension of Gerald Ford’s tradition of golf, JFK’s daily support of the tobacco industry and Jimmy Carter’s promotion of men with tiny testicles.

    I wonder if his mirror talks back to him?

    The bride at every wedding, the corpse at every funeral.

    President Zero loves himself so much, that Mount Rushmore would look like this if he had his way.

    In 1922, under the Administration of President Warren G. Harding, Secretary of the Interior Albert B. Fall leased Navy petroleum reserves at Teapot Dome and two other locations to private oil companies at low rates without competitive bidding in exchange for bribes resulting in the Teapot Dome Scandal. President Obama continues this tradition of underhanded back room bribery by bypassing the normal laws of bankruptcy and handing the control of a private corporation, General Motors, to the United Auto Workers as a reward for their support in his election of 2008.
