Standing in Weinstein’s basement, Obama said his troubles are like the ones facing Cuomo.
“When I ran in 2008, I think that a lot of folks believed we elect Obama and suddenly we’re going to fix politics in Washington,” Obama said. “And Andrew is familiar with this, because everybody figures, well, we’re going to fix politics in Albany.”
“And then it turns out that there are a lot of bad habits that have been built up over time, and we’re also a big, diverse country and not everybody agrees with me; not everybody agrees with the folks who live in Manhattan,” he said, drawing laughter from the rich celebrities that filled the room. “West of here,” he said. “You guys may not be familiar with it.”
…Before leaving, Obama likened himself to one more figure. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I think that we forget when he was alive there was nobody who was more vilified, nobody who was more controversial, nobody who was more despairing at times,” he said.
Vilified? Really? We’ve never seen a president get such an obvious pass from the leftwing media in the history of this country.
That’s just nuts.
This is just more proof that the Narcissist in Chief takes no responsibility for his failed policies that have caused the American economy to tank.
UPDATE: Media Matters says Obama never compared himself to
Lincoln, Reagan, FDR, MLK.
