Really, Obama? The arrogance, it scorches. Last night at an event with some basketball stars, President Obama actually said that it’s “very rare I come to an event where I’m like the 5th or 6th most interesting person.”
The Weekly Standard also reports that his “new tone,” like his modesty, is an utter fail.
He wound up by saying: “I can’t resist a basketball analogy. We are in the fourth quarter. We’re up by a few points but the other side is coming strong and they, they, they play a little dirty. (Laughter) We’ve got a few folks on our team in foul trouble. We’ve got a couple of injuries and I believe that they’ve got one last run in them.”
“I’d say there’s about seven minutes to go in the game. And Michael’s competitiveness is legendary and nobody knows better than Michael that if you’ve got a little bit of a lead and there’s about seven minutes ago, that’s when you put them away.”
Put them away! Maybe “get in their faces”? Plus, wow. Delusional much? If you want to talk about playing dirty, Obama, look in the mirror. Hint: Accusing someone of being a felon (even if you try to lie about doing so) and of killing a woman is beyond dirty and entering into pure gutter sludge.
Citizens cannot believe his utter arrogance. It seems like we should be used to his unmitigated hubris by now, yet he always manages to one-up the ego and surprise us all.
I just checked my list of 10,000 adjectives for Obama, and "interesting" wasn't on it.—

“It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person,” Obama said. Can he be more arrogant?—

Mr. Obama, every time you've been in the presence of our military you're the least interesting person in the room.—

I think that Obama statement tonight sums up what I dislike most about him. He really does believe he is intensely interesting.—

This Twitter user sums it up.

From your lips … may his fall be a resounding defeat in November!
Obama says he's not used to being "the 5th or 6th most interesting person" at an event. Or the 3rd person in a human spelling of "Ohio."—

Of course, the sycophants at The Washington Post would disagree. If they have recovered from their total embarrassment yet.
