Obama modestly calls himself “the most successful President over the last 50 years”
His supporters have called Barack Obama the most intelligent president ever, the most handsome president ever, the most athletic president ever, the most charming president ever, the greatest orator ever, and now to that list of distinguished achievements we can add most modest president ever.
Politico has the unassuming, unpretentious untruth:
On a conference call with hundreds of organizers, volunteers and campaign operatives, Obama played up the threats posed by Republicans to his agenda while boasting of “hav[ing] had the most successful legislative initiative of any president over the last 50 years.”
The call was the culmination of a day-long roll-out of his re-election campaign, which began with the 5 a.m. release of a video entitled “It Begins With Us.” That was followed by an email to supporters, the filing of re-election paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and a more exclusive rally-the-troops conference call with top donors conducted by campaign manager Jim Messina.
“I’m fired up, I don’t know about everybody else,” Obama said after being patched through by the White House switchboard to a core group of campaign workers that pulled off an upset victory over Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic primaries nearly three years ago and went on to defeat Republican John McCain.
We think he misread the teleprompter again. We’re pretty sure he meant to say, “I should be fired.”
can we just replace him with Paul Ryan, now? Please……………
