Obama Still Finds It Hard to Be Humble

When you're the greatest at everything, why be humble?  From Morning Jolt:
Place this one in the category of, "Oh, he's just so farshtunken perfect, isn't he?"

In the meeting, Obama reportedly boasted about his knowledge of Judaism, telling the leaders that he thinks he knows more "about Judaism" than all past presidents. He said he gained this knowledge of Judaism from reading.

We've heard the jokes about how often Obama likes to tout his actions as unprecedented. (Politico noticed way back in November 2009 that "Obama has relied on 'unprecedented' in more than 90 instances, using the word at least 129 times in everything from major addresses to small speeches, statements, memorandums and proclamations.)"

He says he's among the top four presidents. Biden says the bin Laden mission was the most audacious military plan in 500 years. Everything is the biggest, the best, the grandest, the newest, the smartest . . . why does this guy not get along with Donald Trump again?

It must be nice -- or blinding -- to walk through life constantly telling yourself and others -- and hearing others say -- that you're the best at everything. All the time.

As I mentioned yesterday, he assures us that even his humility is "profound."
Because I'd hate for him to have to just make do with mere garden-variety humility. 
I think the voters should help him with his humility. Let's let him go back to Chicago and work on it.

If this election were a game of chess, Obama sees his pieces being knocked off the board one-by-one.

He moves his bishop to check, and that Bishop gets captured. He moves his rook to check, and that Rook gets captured.

When his defeat appears inevitable, someone with Obama's thin-skin (big ears), massive ego and disregard for both unwritten convention (won't defend DOMA) and written rules (illegally declares Senate in recess) won't tip over his King in resignation.

He will throw the table upside down and declare himself the undefeated champion.
