The (Arrogant) One: "I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions"
“I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.”
B. H. Obama
Meeting With House Democrats
July 29, 2008
Obama was waxing lyrical about last week’s trip to Europe, when he concluded, according to the meeting attendee, “this is the moment, as Nancy [Pelosi] noted, that the world is waiting for.”
The 200,000 souls who thronged to his speech in Berlin came not just for him, he told the enthralled audience of congressional representatives. “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions,” he said, according to the source.
Warner Todd Huston adds:
This is the sort of thing if said by a Republican would be hung around that candidate’s neck like a mill stone. The epithet of “arrogant” would be the tail pinned forever to him and would appear in every single news story. Should a Republican bespeak of himself in such terms, he’d be branded the next Hitler leading us all to ruin.
In response, the GOP released “Audacity Watch” today.
