Obama’s Hubris

“The god-king has betrayed a fatal flaw: Hubris.”

This is a quote from the fantastic movie 300 when Xerxes under-estimates the Spartans and sends his best warriors to their death.  But what does this have to do with Obama?

If you recall, everyone pretty much agrees that Obama didn’t do so well in the first debate with Mitt Romney.  In fact, there’s people who I never thought I hear criticism of Obama come out of their mouth that had plenty to say.  But, what did Obama think?  Well, the British paper The Daily Mail has found that Obama actually thought he won.

“When President Barack Obama stepped off the stage in Denver last week the 60 million Americans watching the debate against Mitt Romney already knew it had been a disaster for him.

But what nobody knew, until now, was that Obama believed he had actually won.”

He really, honestly believed he won.  Not only is he out of touch with what the economy, and international concerns, he’s out of touch with what the American Public thinks how he’s doing.

The reason that’s given to us for Obama not doing well is very revealing:

“The Democrat said that Obama’s inner circle was dismayed at the ‘disaster’ and that he believed the central problem was that the President was so disdainful of Romney that he didn’t believe he needed to engage with him.”

Disdainful.  As in consider as beneath oneself.

dis·dain (dis-deyn)

tr.v. 

1. To regard or treat with haughty contempt; despise.
2. To consider or reject as beneath oneself.
n.

A feeling or show of contempt and aloofness; scorn.

In deed, what is a President of the United States doing considering someone who has served as a successful governor to a very liberal state as beneath him?  The very man who thinks he can (and I believe he will) do better than Obama at restoring America to it’s former strength and Obama thinks that he doesn’t need even consider his criticisms.   This is just one example of how Obama treats those who do not follow him lock-step.  Even moderate Democrats have felt his disdain.  And people believe that the partisan politics in DC are all the result of Republicans?

People need to wake up.  Obama isn’t on their side, he’s a Politician and a King.  And to some people, he’s a god-king.  He needs to be voted out of office!
