Jonathan Alder, speaking of Obama, said: "He comes from the neediest profession [i.e., politics] of all, except for acting, but he is not needy and he doesn't fully understand the neediness of others; it's an abstraction to him." I disagree. Obama isn't needy as such; he is arrogant, selfish, and narcissistic.
His mother was...well...whatever she was, and judging from recent revelations, not even he can be sure who his biological father was/is. He doesn't acknowledge people; he doesn't share the platform with politicians in their own towns; he's doesn't send thank you notes (albeit he does send birthday cards intended to intimidate those he fears and their families). He doesn't acknowledge those who break their back for him, nor does he acknowledge those he orders to spend $35,000.00 a plate for his reelection campaign.
People can make excuses for his behavior and his campaign can attempt to spin it--in the final analysis he behaves as he does because he believes himself to be entitled. He is "The One." All are to hail him.
Why would he be expected to acknowledge people for doing what is expected of them? Both he and his arrogant, harridan wife strut about as if they were royalty. As a matter of fact, I'm surprised he hasn't issued executive orders yet, decreeing people must bow whenever they pass by.
I say we send them back to his third world village where people will bow before him and tell of the time he spoke from a burning bush.
