Quote of the day – Charles Krauthammer

Notice, too, how Obama habitually refers to Cabinet members and other high government officials as “my” — “my secretary of homeland security,” “my national security team,” “my ambassador.” The more normal — and respectful — usage is to say “the,” as in “the secretary of state.” These are, after all, public officials sworn to serve the nation and the Constitution — not just the man who appointed them.

It’s a stylistic detail, but quite revealing of Obama’s exalted view of himself. Not surprising, perhaps, in a man whose major achievement before acceding to the presidency was writing two biographies — both about himself.

Read the whole column here. It’s exceptional.

    I’m amazed Ben didn’t call you a “liar” Roxy.
    That’s his most notable argument.

      You know this guy, do ya? You know what I find funny about these guys? They show up and argue some irrelevant point like the definition of an autobiography as opposed to a biography, but they are never around to debate the socialist agenda of this president. They never want to discuss how ObamaCare will ration health care or how much more our taxes will be after this year.

      They just show up with stupid irrelevant comments.

    [Ben, two auto-bios within such a short space of time is excessive, don’t you think? ]

    Dreams From My Father was released in 1995. The Audacity of Hope was released in 2006. That’s a show space of time? You ought to be glad we have a president who not only reads but also can write.

      Is there a reason you’ve come here to post? I’d be interested in knowing it because #1 you like none of the opinions here, #2 you aren’t going to change anyone’s mind and #3 no one is going to change yours.

      I suggest you go back to where you feel more welcome. This ain’t the place, doll. 😉

    Ben, two auto-bios within such a short space of time is excessive, don’t you think? Sort of like receiving the Nobel Prize before you have gone the distance.

    Think of all the American Presidents who did not write books or pubish memoirs. Obama put out two books as advertisements to win the Presidency.

    Motive, method and the man make all the difference. Respectfully, SH

    I think it’s obvious to my other readers, why I’ve approved Bens post.

    LOL

    Autobiographies are usually about the person who wrote them. 🙂
