President Barack Obama is acknowledging in the wake of this week's election rout that he hasn't been able to successfully promote his economic-rescue message to anxious Americans.
Obama says in an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" that he "stopped paying attention" to the leadership style he displayed during his run for the presidency.
Obama also said he recognizes now that "leadership is not just legislation," and that "it's a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone. And making an argument that people can understand."
Catch the arrogance? "And making an argument that people can understand." Obama and his apparatchiks think you're just too stupid to understand that why, he's only helping you as he helps himself to your wallet. Why wouldn't you understand that?
What is it with these people? This is what they say after every defeat, that somehow "our message did not get out." Do they honestly believe that? Do they honestly believe that with control of a servile, compliant and fawning media complex that their "message didn't get out"?
ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, "Public" Television, NPR, Hollywood, the newspapers, news magazines, internet home pages with their carefully selected editorials posing as news stories, but somehow their message is not getting through...
So just who is stopping the American people from hearing this message?
What they fell to realize or at least acknowledge publicly is that their message is indeed getting out loud and clear, but the American people do not want it.
I intend to live forever, or die trying. It Could Be that the Purpose of Your Life is Only to Serve as a Warning to Others. Join the Army, meet interesting people, kill them. All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.
