Obama is the 4th Best President?


CBS's 60 Minutes edited the part of Steve Kroft's interview with Obama where Obama alludes pretty strongly to being the fourth best president in American history........the part they cut is in the above link.


He flatters himself, of course......His exact words are  "I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president -- with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln -- just in terms of what we've gotten done in modern history."

Wait...JOHNSON is one of the TOP THREE presidents?  ANDREW JOHNSON?  Surely he can't mean LYNDON JOHNSON!  (but he does)  And FDR?  YIKES! 

Well, I'm glad Obama has such a high opinion of himself !  I guess I'm really less troubled about that (and less surprised about it), than I am that Sixty Minutes edited it out...(not that I'm surprised about that, either, of course.)  Oh, I know..my liberal commenters will remind us that TV shows only have so much time per segment so they can't show everything (though we all know that) .....but wouldn't anybody think it's pretty big NEWS that a president rates himself so highly, particularly when he's so low in the opinion of the public?


But the media's not biased, right? :-)

Well, I hate to be the "Bob Beckel" of the Golly-Geeeeez blog.

I will first admit that I haven't seen the clip yet. Nevertheless, I read the quote a few times, and I just don't detect this egregious level of arrogance. His quote sounds like a president campaigning for his second term. I'll give you that. But I think that's understandable considering the timetable.

To be blunt, I've never heard of a politician who doesn't sound braggadocios at least some of the time. If Obama's particularly arrogant, what is Newt Gingrich? And what on Earth is Herman Cain?

(and I like Newt, btw)

Obama is a megalomaniac.

BTW, both Mr. AOW and I posted this video -- each of with our own commentary. I posted it over at IBA, where Epa commented as follows:

He is not an amateur
He is not incompetent


HE

IS

ON

SOMETHING


About a year ago, I came to the same conclusion and so stated HERE. I haven't changed my mind

My retort:

*gag* Whut a maroon!

Biased?

Perish the thought!

P.S.
Sometimes even the MSM/DEM realize that Obaka's in way over his head.

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Or perhaps he's too far up his own nose?

Why do leftists give a break to FDR regarding the Japanese internment camps? That blows my mind.

Joe said...

FB: The way MSM see it, it was AMERICANS, not FDR who put those Japanese in those internment camps.

See, FDR did no wrong. The American people are the real enemy.

As for President BO (the child president), he is a clinical narcicist and truely thinks of himself as THE ONE.

Notice he said "...with the POSSIBLE..." (as opposed to actual or probable)"... exception of..."

Silverfiddle said...

Obummer makes a typical DC Pol mistake: Equating passing bloated, horror-filled laws with "success."

It's a bi-partisan malady...

Brilliant comment! Pithy and accurate.

Z said...

net, as I said, it's that 60 Minutes axed it more than he said it.
Gingrich is an arrogant ass, as are most of them, but I think he's the most of the Republican bunch.

Also, net....LYNDON JOHNSON? REALLY? :-)

"GOTTEN" Since when did that become a WORD? AOW, could you weigh in on that :-)?

sickening truly Z! Happy Monday my friend~!:)

I imagine in the not too distant future we will see one more face added to Rushmore.
Obama's fans reminds me of Kim Jong Ill's population all trained to clap in unison like trained seals

Z said...

Lisa...good point!

Angel...same to YOU.
Your Christmas message by Netanyahu is a blessing, thanks for posting that.

Brooke said...

Obama is unreal. He is a god unto himself, in his own mind.

And no, he did not forget Washington... He holds the first president in scorn.

liberaldude said...

The clip is edited out of context bullshit. And those of you who parrot Rush's 'egomaniac' or 'megalomanic' crap are loons.

liberaldude said...

Maybe you should turn off Fox to see his actual accomplishments:

Brooke said...

Rush? Fox News? This is from 60 Minutes.

And out of context? The words coming out of Obama's mouth seem pretty darn clear.

Z said...

Brooke, it's all the left's got when they don't take the time to read or watch a post's video and then have to protect Obama!
The tape goes on, unedited, and it's "out of context" :-)
poor libdude; the biggest Koolaid drinker since Jim Jones' poor sycophants.
