Letterman Airs "Top 10 Signs Obama Is Overconfident"
It must be OK to make jokes about Obama now…
The Top 10 Reasons Snobama Is Getting Overconfident:
“The (snobby) One” was the topic of Letterman’s Top 10 list on Tuesday.
Here’s the video:
The Politico is reporting that Obama’s arrogant attitude is starting to wear on people. Obama is even finding himself the butt of jokes after his 8 day global photo-op:
Barack Obama’s critics laid down the foundations of the strategy months ago: The Republican National Committee started the “Audacity Watch” back in April, and Karl Rove later fueled the attack by describing the first-term Illinois senator as “coolly arrogant.”
It wasn’t until the last week, however, that the narrative of Obama as a president-in-waiting – and perhaps getting impatient in that waiting – began reverberating beyond the e-mail inboxes of Washington operatives and journalists.
Perhaps one of the clearest indications emerged Tuesday from the world of late-night comedy, when David Letterman offered his “Top Ten Signs Barack Obama is Overconfident.” The examples included Obama proposing to change the name of Oklahoma to “Oklobama,” and measuring his head for Mount Rushmore.
“When Letterman is doing ‘Top Ten’ lists about something, it has officially entered the public consciousness,” said Dan Schnur, a political analyst with the University of Southern California and the communications director in John McCain’s 2000 campaign. “And it usually stays there for a long, long time.”
Following a nine-day, eight-country tour that carried the ambition and stagecraft of a presidential state visit, Obama has found himself in an unusual position: the butt of jokes.
The Republicans didn’t have to try hard to paint Obama as an elitist snob.
He’s actually done pretty well all by himself.
