    It's true, the bigger the ego the more of a damned fool.

    Best example lately would be the self adoring Kenyan presently ensconced in our White House. Problem is, he really is no fool...he knows exactly what he is doing...to us!.

    If there is someone in this world that's a bigger egotist than Obama I'm not aware of it. His ratings are in the toilet and he still thinks he can walk on water.

    The bigger the Ego the more angry you get - don't let others offload their rubbish onto you.

    That's funny I can not think of a less eotistical politician than Barack Hussein Obama, if you have ever listened to his Philadelphia speech about race or his Nobel Prize acceptance speech I cannot see how you would ever describe his as egotistical. That he has had a way about him ever since Harvard Law School and that, President of the Harvard Law Review thing, and that he is aware of his ability to be liked and thus advance his political stature I believe is true. As far as his poll numbers they are ephemeral. The stock market is taking off, health care reform is upon us, and he courageously said the other day, and I paraphrase, "let us do the right thing and worry about the election later". That is not the words of an egotist.

    Waffler, so what your saying is the damned fool needs no anesthetic? Hmm, his continually saying one thing and doing another seems sufficiently sophisticated that its done with a calculated malice of forethought (does that eliminate the fool part? - hmm, dunno); and, his other sophistries, such as worrying about the election later, might just imply an ego of an obvious intelligent individual.

    I find it funny, too. Wise people will seek the truth, admit errors and still gain other people's respect instead.

    "I'm the one we've been waiting for...I'll stop the oceans from rising...I'll heal the sick...I'll feed the poor....I'll pay your bills..." Barack Hussein Obama....Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm.

    You Libertarians make me laugh - you just spew your ignorance by the barrel - the sad part is that theirs a market for it!

    That's right RBE...there's a market for Liberty. Our country was founded on that idea by people who actually had spines.

    It would be funny if it weren't so true. Obama is the only president I can recall who uses the word 'I' repeatedly in his speeches. Narcissism ain't too great either as the narcissist believes in his infallibility and super-powers. A greater hypocrite has not been in office since FDR.
