The Politico brings us:
Politics of personal perfection
Let’s be honest: Barack Obama is better than you are.
He’s a better father — taking breaks from running the world to cheer on his daughters at soccer and basketball games.
He’s a better husband — zipping his wife off for dinner in New York and Paris.
And he’s got a terrific jump shot.
You? Not so much.
Call it the politics of personal perfection.
If you’re looking for a punchline, you’ll look in vain. The writer really believes that Obama is all that. And he cites other people who think so, too:
“He’s so g-ddamned smart and such a good representative for the country,” said Alan Siegel, a corporate branding expert and CEO of the marketing firm Siegel & Gale. “I admire him.”
“They’ve just done so many things so well,” said Susan Hodgkinson, principal of The Personal Brand Co. “You have to tip your hat to them and say, ‘Brilliant.’”
Wowowowow! Just looking at the news, today, you could say he did a “brilliant” job picking his Supreme Court nominee.
His support for the Honduran lefty despot as opposed to the Honduran Constitution was certainly “brilliant”….
Inviting Iranian Dips from a brutal, tyrannical regime to a hot dog party was uber “brilliant…
And I guess it’s true that he’s destroying the American economy and way of life in a “brilliant” manner…
Yay! I can’t wait until I have to be on the public dole for everything. I’ll lose weight and be as skinny as the Obamas!
Former President Bush, the author is careful to note, couldn’t even pronounce “nuclear”.
