Skip to comments.Meacham: Obama 'In The Wrong Business, Doesn't Particularly Like People'
Posted on 11/22/2011 5:28:10 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
When it comes to the MSM, it's hard to get more mainstream than Jon Meacham. Former Newsweek editor. Current Random House editor. Picked for a Pulitzer Prize.
So when someone of Meacham's genteelly liberal ilk unloads on Barack Obama in such stark terms, it's newsworthy. On today's Morning Joe, Meacham flatly stated his belief that President Obama "doesn't particularly like people and politicians who don't like people are kind of in the wrong business."

Doesn’t particularly like people, and HATES Americans.
I buy into Dinesh D’Souza’s anti-colonialism psyche of Obama.
He resents the British (and the Western World ) for torturing his Kenyan grandfather in the 1950’s.
The man simply carries a life long grudge. He seethes within. D’Souza calls him the “last anti-colonialist.” He hates living in the White House which to him is the center of Western Imperialism. Try to imagine Rush Limbaugh being elected president of the Soviet Union and having to live in the Kremlin. Kind of like that - lol.
Explains why he returned Churchill’s bust that was in the White House and approving the release of the Lockerbie bomber.
Here is a link to D’Souza’s book. The Amazon reviews are very enlightening as well.
Both, with a slight adjustment. The former is the feelings he recognizes. The latter if you remove the "and assumes..." part. The superiority pose is compensating for how worthless he believes himself to be. Barry is one sick puppy. To him, we are all just toys to manipulate in order to make him feel better. That includes his family, too.
They are prepping themselves for Shrillary
Does that make Zero the democrat Richard Nixon?
Mark, the pressure on Obama to get out and cede to Hillary or Biden is, once again, yet another Carter Paradigm (re: the Swimmer’s 1980 primary insurgency) lining up to be validated next November. Incredible how history repeats itself.
Read it, too.
Great little book.
Amongst the many fascinating things about his observations, he notes that most ‘intellectuals’ tend to be only children, and narcissistic.
I;ll have to check out the book
I betcha Obama will be caught doing drugs before his 1st term is out.

JON MEACHAM: It's a little worse than normal. Because even though he was there, my sense is he doesn't particularly like people and politicians who don't like people are kinda in the wrong business.
HAROLD FORD, JR.:Kinda.
MEACHAM: Kinda. I really believe this. So, Reagan wanted to perform for people. So you could bring him in, and he, it would be a small audience. George H.W. Bush: all of his life was one long reunion mixer. Bill Clinton, uh, loved people. So I think this is a personality distinction.
Great find. Mort Zuckerman made the same point last month:
'It's as if he doesn't like people," says real-estate mogul and New York Daily News owner Mortimer Zuckerman of the president of the United States. Barack Obama doesn't seem to care for individuals, elaborates Mr. Zuckerman, though the president enjoys addressing millions of them on television.
I don't know if the "depth psychology" really ads much beyond what they've said.
