I found this to be astounding.
In an interview with George Stephanopolous, President Obama explains that, during the last year, he and his administration “lost touch” with the American people.
If there’s one thing that I regret this year is that we were so busy just getting stuff done and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us that I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values,” Obama told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview at the White House.
The arrogance of this man…
Yes, President Obama, please help us to understand what our core values are. And, please, prod us into our places, like the human cattle we are.
The president said he made a mistake in assuming that if he focused on policy decisions, the American people would understand the reasoning behind them.
“That I do think is a mistake of mine,” Obama said. “I think the assumption was if I just focus on policy, if I just focus on this provision or that law or if we’re making a good rational decision here, then people will get it.”
This guy just believes we are idiots, who need someone as enlightened as him, to make all the right moves for us, while we just sit around, drooling and drawing cartoons, placing our futures in his all-capable hands.
Instead, the president said the American people ended up with a “feeling of remoteness and detachment” from the policymakers in Washington who are making big decisions.
“I think, you know, what they ended up seeing is this feeling of remoteness and detachment where there’s these technocrats up here making decisions. Maybe some of them are good, maybe some of them aren’t, but do they really get us and what we’re going through?” he said.
WE are remote and detached? You are the prime mover behind an agenda that Americans are roundly rejecting. The detachment is YOURS. You are so busy attempting to twist our institutions into behemoths of control which will permanently affect the most personal facets of out lives, that you have placed yourself and your desires above those which you are supposed to serve.
Obama said he felt he could do a better job connecting to the American people in his second year in office.
President Obama said today that he believes he lost a direct connection to the American people in his first year in office because he focused too heavily on policymaking.
“I think that I can do a better job of that, and partly because I do believe that we’re in a stronger position now than we were a year ago,” he said.
Yes, Barack. America is in a far better position to deal with issues both foreign and domestic than we were a year ago. And it is our misunderstanding, and our lack of indebtedness to your tireless efforts on behalf of us, that has led us to just not appreciate everything you have sacrificed for us.
As per his election a year ago, you’d assume that he would have to have been “in touch” with the American people. In the course of a year, a year in which “hope and change” was to go hand-in-hand with American progress, he’s managed to squander the supposed boundless faith which the citizens of this country invested in him.
Obama is an exceptional narcissist, but, with statements like these, he may be clinically delusional, as well.
