obama the narcissistic

Now this is funny:

A struggling President Obama is calling for help from members of his first-term A-Team, who have left the White House for other jobs.

With his poll numbers falling and his second-term floundering so far, Obama has sought help from the former aides who helped catapult him to the presidency.

…One former aide described Obama’s trusted inner circle from the first term as “the originals,” and speculated that if they were still at the White House they could have helped prevent some of Obama’s second-term blunders, such as the decision Monday to give a fiery speech criticizing Republicans just hours after 12 people were gunned down a few miles away at the Navy Yard.

Sought help? But according to The One he doesn’t need any help. In fact, he’s better than anyone he could hire:

Obama had always had a high estimation of his ability to cast and run his operation. When David Plouffe, his campaign manager, first interviewed for a job with him in 2006, the senator gave him a warning: “I think I could probably do every job on the campaign better than the people I’ll hire to do it,” he said. “It’s hard to give up control when that’s all I’ve known.” Obama said nearly the same thing to Patrick Gaspard, whom he hired to be the campaign’s political director. “I think I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Obama told him. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

So what’s the problem now? It’s been obvious ever since he came on the scene. He surrounds himself with people who actually believe he is “The One” who can do no wrong. Whatever he wants, he gets.

He wants to put out his usual partisan attack right after a mass shooting at a military facility…sure, go right ahead o’greatone. People now see this man as the fake leader he has always been and shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic won’t fix anything.

Ace:

But after a painstaking period of self-criticism and self-examination, Team Obama thinks they’ve figured out what’s been going wrong with them lately.

Surprise! It’s the same thing they always say is going wrong with them.

…Former Obama aides, however, maintain that there has been a messaging problem at the White House ever since Obama won reelection.

Fortunately, there is a cure: They can begin putting out a Message that Obama almost never puts out lately.

And they say that aides need to do a better job reasserting the narrative that Obama is, as one put it, the “aggressive champion of the middle class.”

And the Middle Class. No, he never mentions And The Middle Class (ATMC). I mean, sure, he mentioned it for no reason at all in his Syria speech, but he practically never mentions And The Middle Class, apart from Always.

The problem isn’t that he doesn’t mention it. It’s that he doesn’t believe it and we all know it. And that’s not a Messaging Problem. It’s a Priority Problem, or, as we usually call it, just a straight-up Problem.

This man has had people blowing smoke up his butt telling him how great he is his whole life. Now that people can see through his fake facade he’s calling for help.

Just too funny, and sad.
