I have no doubt that is exactly how he sees himself.

He was definitely cut from the same cloth as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Mao Tse Tung.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

~ C.S. Lewis ~

Obama is arrogant, but not from a sense of moral superiority. He thinks that he’s trickier, more clever, than us hick Marks. We are just people to be robbed. I could even grudgingly respect him if he was a true communist. He’s just a con man, a thief, a pickpocket. He’s a shill to distract people while The Grifter takes their money.

They want that power to rid themselves of us so badly.

They are salivating over it.

There is nothing morally superior about a dope chooming adolescent who spent his formative years growing up in America-Hostile environments (Hawaii and Indonesia).

There is nothing morally superior about hiding virtually every damned transcript and application to institutions of higher learning.

There is nothing morally superior about voting “present” more times than ‘yea’ or ‘nay’ on any legislation, in any venue.

There is nothing morally superior about getting your wife a $300K/year job to shuffle poor sick people off to county hospitals.

There is nothing morally superior at supposedly having penned two ‘self written’ auto biographies/pompous blather sagas before age 50. It is narcissistic.

There is nothing morally superior claiming in those books he knew how to fool white people, and that if things got ugly he’d stand with his Muslim Brothers.

Nothing morally superior about this man at all. Clouded background, poison filled mind, and pompous arrogance that would piss off the Pope. His goal is revenge on white people, and enslavement of them and the rest of America, enslaved to Islamic Domination.

“Sometimes he governs like a visitor from a morally superior civilization”>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes and that civilization is the Fascist Utopia that Obama means to create. Where every freedom is predefined by political correctness which fluctuates by the size of King Obamas foot on any given day. America is being nmade to submit. Congress is being made t submit. Next the people will be made to submit.

Obama is what can be called a vengeful president.His activities from Kenya, to Libya and Syria have done nothing but create tens of thousands of corpses, and soon the American Spring will begin here in the United States.

The only question now is will we fight? Or will we go down with the slightest of whimpers?

Keep a very close eye on Israel. Obama has released thousands of weapons into the hands of the mujahadeen through Benghazi ( why Hillery will not testify), including between 10 and 20 thousand shoulder launched missiles from the Libyan Arsenal. They are now making their way to the perimeters of every major civilian airport around the world.And thats just a VERY minor aspect of the total picture.Israel is about to fight a war for her very survival with the USA keeping a mere observer status.Once jordon has its Arab Spring, the die will be cast and it will not be long.

It is only a matter of time before the Obama fascist destruction manifests here at home, and Obama wants to take as many of our guns as he can, before his federal DHS street soldiers begin their work here in our own communities.

Also imagine Muslim radicals seizing our schools and shooting a student every hour until their demands are met? They are here in America merely awaiting the GO word.

Every teacher in the country should be training to bear arms in the schools where they work.

Yes Obama’s civilization is about as superior as was the Third Reich of 1930s Europe.The historical similarites are beyond amazing.

Good Read:

I’d say you have covered it thoroughly in a nut shell.

The history is here in this article from 2008:

More like he governs like a visitor, because he sure as heck doesn’t govern like an American.

Yeah, where is this “moral superiority”? Stoking up a rabid mob to demand more “gimme” concessions from the cowed and defensive producers does not seem to be a good long-term strategy, and quickly shall become unsustainable. The discouraged producers, seeing no tangible return on their investments and time, join the “gimme” crowd, before it all disappears for good.

As for the “prankster” aspect of what Bronco Bama does, it is only a pale comparison with the legendary (in his own mind, at least) Dick Tuck and the “dirty tricks” he pulled on Richard Nixon.
