If you need any more proof that President Obama is a narcissist- in-chief rather than a commander-in-chief, here is one of the most revealing statements he uttered during his post-election press conference on November 5.
Obviously, Republicans had a good night. And they deserve credit for running good campaigns. Beyond that, I’ll leave it to all of you and the professional pundits to pick through yesterday’s results.
I dare you to read the complete transcript without cursing aloud the American people for twice-electing this man to be our leader.
Yesterday, after the press conference, PJ Tatler editor Bryan Preston succinctly summed up Obama’s message:
“He’s not going to change, not for you, not for the voters, not for anybody.”
But what if Obama actually had the guts to change?
What if he had reacted like a normal leader who had just suffered a catastrophic defeat? How different would his post-election presser have sounded?
That is your mission (if you dare.) You are tasked to write statements that Obama would have included in his post-election speech had he reacted more like a leader who had just been repudiated by the people and his party.
To start you off, here are my entries:
“I am the general in charge of the War on Women. I have just signed a declaration of surrender that puts an end to this phony war that I concocted to win reelection in 2012.”
“American voters have finally realized that I am nothing but a trumped-up community organizer and my organization has just been decimated.”
“I am now forced to admit that trying to divide the American people using class-warfare and racial/gender-identity politics has totally failed.”
“Please forgive me for immediately playing golf after the beheading of an American by ISIS. It was a boneheaded move because my head was into my game.”
“Now is a good time to admit that it was my children, Sasha and Malia, who first suggested the idea of blaming the Benghazi terror attack on a You Tube video.”
(Holding up a large pen) “Because the American people have spoken, here is the pen that I will use to sign any legislation that lands on my desk from the Republican-controlled Congress.”
“Republicans now have the opportunity to undo all the damage I have done to this nation since taking office.”
“These election results have proven that I am the problem.”
Michelle told me last night, “It not all about me anymore,” and I said, “Yes dear,” and I meant it.
Enough with my fantasy speech writing!
Now it is your turn to rewrite President Obama’s post-election speech.
Have fun, but remember that President Obama still controls the IRS.
