Laser-like self-focus! Did Obama make Nelson Mandela, South Africa speech all about him?

That Twitter user didn’t have long to wait to receive an answer to his question.

President Obama spoke in Cape Town, South Africa Sunday afternoon. Lo and behold, guess who he managed to make the speech all about:

Laser-like focus … on himself. As always!

Twitter users couldn’t help but notice the obvious narcissism and they have had quite enough of it.

Yep. Also not believable?

Heh.

But … he’s you! And Nelson Mandela, evidently.

President Obama also shockingly admitted that he wasn’t quite focused during college (hello, Choom Boom!):

Zing!

And an excellent exit point:

Slam!

    Does he honestly think anyone in S. Africa gives a rat’s azz about any of that, but particularly that he wasn’t always focused on his studies in college? Even the diminishing number here who still love him. couldn’t care less.

    “Let us pause for a moment to pay tribute to a great man – – me”, Obama gushed.

    I’m Obama’s age, and SA apartheid was THE issue of the day on college campuses. I bet he participated in ZERO anti-apartheid activities (too busy w/the choom boyz).

    • http://www.amazon.com/Devon-Dibley-His-Golden-Key/dp/1484181557/ M F Scotto

      I’m of that age, but I was protesting (on the Capitol lawn) the repression in Eastern Europe and in Nicaragua in college. Comparatively, SA was a notch below. But even so, as I protested communism, I never lauded or defended apartheid. The Leftists on campus protested apartheid, as they defended and praised the gulags.

      • mickeyco

        Those were the days, hunh? All I had to protest was ‘Nam, and since I believed in it & my brother was fighting there, I didn’t even get to protest that. I was too young for the racial wars here. I was deprived.

          Exactly. I remember coming home from college and trying to tell my dad, a lifelong Democrat, that the college Democrats were radical communists. They loved Castro, Ortega and the Soviet Union. He wouldn’t believe me. I tell my kids I know Obama because I know his kind from my college days. I remember the debates. I know how they think and it’s scary.

    “See, like many of you, I didn’t grow up in a family with a lot of money… they wanted me to graduate from secondary school and attend a university… blah.blah,blah… So over the course of my life, I’ve worked as a lawyer, as the director of a youth organization, and as vice president of a hospital. Because I had a good education, I was able to provide for my family, give back to my community, and now serve my country as First Lady.”

    Say what you want about Bush’s policies, but at least the guy didn’t make all his speeches about him. I remember when he cane to speak at Aquinas College here in Grand Rapids his speech was about… *gasp* Aquinas College.

    • 1CatEye

      Those on the left are so stupid and inept that they cheer someone more stupid and inept than themselves because it makes their lesser stupidity and ineptness look good by contrast.

      • Shootist

  • OLLPOH ~ America

    Obama dissed and trashed America many, many years ago…He is a Communist/Marxist.

    I actually took my first step in the political life because of South Africa, Obama began. He said that growing up with an American mother and an African father left him with a sense of appreciation for diversity, but he was never particularly interested in politics. Like many young people I thought that cynicism, a certain ironic detachment, was a sign of wisdom and sophistication, he added. But then I learned what was happening here in South Africa. I knew that while brave people were imprisoned just off these shores, on Robben Island, my own government in the United States was not standing on their side, Obama said. And that is why I got involved in what was known as the divestment movement in the United States. It was the first time I ever attached myself to a cause.

He is a useless, disgusting bas tard that should be horsewhipped to within an inch of his life and drummed out of the White House and shipped back to the sewers of Chicago from which he slithered. Clear things up any for you?

  • alanstorm

    The problem, slow child, is that he rarely leaves room for any words EXCEPT that. If you would remove your lips from his posterior, you might notice that the man’s ego is so large as to invite use of the term “infinite”, yet there is absolutely no supporting evidence for it.

    IOW, he’s a typical liberal.

  • ObamaFail

    Fake IRS scandal? You sure are a moron, aren’t you? The IRS has admitted multiple times to have targeted groups just for their beliefs. It’s pathetic of you to bury your head in the sand and pretend it never happened. And Obama’s fingerprints are all over it. Nixon did it, Roosevelt did it. Obama did it. THe only reason why he hasn’t been impeached for it yet is because the Democrats are protecting him and hindering the investigation. And Issa is being damaged? That’s nonsense. Once the investigation is complete, we will start seeing more and more liberal scum being arrested and fired.

  • 1CatEye

    If it’s a fake scandal, why would there be fingerprints at all? Yes, we all know the IRS just decides for itself what to do, with no input from the WH at all (not). After all, all those visits from the head of the IRS were just about Easter egg rolls, right? How stupid are you?

  • ObamaFail

    Except Michelle Obama is doing nothing but vacationing on our dime. Making her the most classless and trashy of all of the first ladies.

  • 1CatEye

    Yeah, she grew up as disadvantaged as a girl in Senegal. Really? The mind, it boggles.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    I wonder what sets Michelle apart from the others so that what was once considered doing the duties of a First Lady is now considered mooching. Hmmmm, what could that difference be?

    The trips where she “flew ahead” and *didn’t* go with her husband on AF1? The solo vacations, at taxpayer expense?

  • 1CatEye

    She doesn’t travel with him, dolt. Remember Spain? How about all her little junkets to ski resorts? How about the daughters’ vacationing on our dime as well (apart from Dad).

  • brianjconway

    The others did not drag half of black Chicago with them on our dime. At the conclusion of this trip, Obogus and family’s vacations will have cost taxpayers over 140 million dollars. They are a disgusting pair of bas tards.

  • Judy Reinhardt

    Would a 1000 person entourage stand out to you? That may be just 1 big difference.

    All other First Ladies were allowed to vacation with taxpayer funded security without criticism.

    They wanna haul the family all around the world, they should do it with their OWN damn money. They can afford it.

  • 1CatEye

    The IRS examined less than 30% of groups with “progressive” in their names. They examined nearly 100% with “tea party”. Yup, nothing to see here, move along. Wait till Lois “I’ll plead the Fifth after I’ve made self-serving comments” Lerner is forced to testify. That will be fun! Sorry, not so much for you dims.

  • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

    Umm, last time I looked, “President of the United States” was still the most powerful and influential man in the world. I would think it be incumbent on those coming to his defense to demonstrate that he was NOT reponsible for the actions of the government which he is the head of. Remember Truman and “The Buck Stops Here”? Sock Puppet was proud enough to take responsibility for what SEAL Team 6 did, but if you believe the headlines and Jay Carney, he hasn’t had his head out of his ass regarding one other thing that has transpired in government otherwise.

  • brianjconway

    Right Fitz there is no proof present so don’t investigate it. Where did you study criminal justice? Chicago no doubt. F’in moron.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    So in other words, we’re supposed to just take your word for it? Good luck with that.

    Oh, and by the way? The “irrational belief that none have ever traveled without their husbands” is a strawman. Try again.

    And yes, we *know* you brought race into it – the last desperate refuge of a #LowInfoLib that can’t figure out any other point to argue from.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Yes I do remember Spain and the Obama’s paid for the trip. When the daughters vacation the Obamas pay for it.

    Really? So they repaid the flight costs for AF1, the security details, etc etc? Got a link to that?

  • mike_in_kosovo

    If you refuse to believe something so obvious – that all first ladies have traveled without their husbands

    Nice strawman, since I never said that. Makes a good excuse to not provide any evidence to back your claim, too.

    And don’t you try to appropriate the term “low information”

    You and yours are the very definition of “Low Info”. Yet another attempt to distract when you have no argument – what’s next, pointing and yelling “Squirrel!”?

    Oh, wait…you’re *already* doing that.

    It *couldn’t* have anything to with the Obamas throwing lavish parties while complaining about the sequester.

    Where are you getting the number of vacations, destinations and costs incurred by prior vacationing first ladies to compare to Obama’s? Can

    You first.

    Want to bet it was less than Zero’s vacation costs, skippy? Of course, the Crawford ranch had a full communications suite as well as (if I recall correctly) lodging facilities for security. Maybe you can remind us just *WHY* the Obamas feel like they *need* to vacation in Hawaii rather than at home in Chicago?

    All you know is you heard Sean Hannity or some such gas bag and his guest “expert” on presidential expenditures Michelle Bachmann or Ann Coulter agree that uppity Michelle Antoinette is breaking the bank and
    voila!

    I have no knowledge of or interest in what it costs to send a first lady to the beach for a week.

    Yet, you’re able to go on and on about how they paid it back – certainly wherever you read that had numbers, no? Or did you just take their word for it?

    You however, who have made the same unsubstantiated argument as Limbaugh et al that Michelle’s costs exceed those of her predecessors, expect to be provided with numbers to refute your argument rather than provide numbers to support it?

    Says the person with no numbers to support *HIS* argument. Maybe you can explain how it’s cheaper to travel now than it was between 2001-2008 to support your claim? Reduction in price for Jet-A, maybe?

    And yes, the only difference I can find between the indifference exhibited by wingnuts towards previous presidential wifely travel costs and the foaming at the mouth outrage over Michelle going skiing is race.

    That’s because you’re the typical #LowInfoLib. You’re so in love with Zero that any dissatisfaction with him *MUST* be due to racism.

    In other words – you’re an idiot and a tool.
