Arrogance is a common vice in presidential politics. A person must be more than a little self-important to wake up one day and say, “I belong in the Oval Office.”
But there’s a line smart politicians don’t cross — somewhere between “I’m qualified to be president” and “I’m born to be president.” Wherever it lies, Barack Obama better watch his step.
He’s bordering on arrogance.
Again, I am not sure if it is the narcotics that are clouding my memory, or if Fournier is simply talking out his ass, but the last damned thing I think of when I think of Obama is arrogant. The man comes off to me as exceedingly humble, thoughtful to a fault, and his speech is considered, reasoned, and deliberate. At times he appears too cautious to me. But arrogant?
That isn’t a word I would use to describe Obama.
The portrait of arrogance.
