Jim Geraghty left out John Glenn: Obama criticizes John McCain as a member of the “Keating five”, while having Glenn introduce him in rallies.
Are these contradictions inherent in a narcissistic personality?
Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objective. They are focused on one thing alone and that is power. All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is beneath them and does not deserve their attention. If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it. The “present” vote is a safe vote. No one can criticize him if things go wrong. Why should he implicate himself in issues that may become controversial when they don’t help him personally? Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him.
We may be about to find out.
Hat tips to Sister Toldjah and Larwyn.
That said, my condolences to the Obama family on the loss of his grandmother Madelyn Dunham.
No. Obamassiah is the One we just do not understand him. /sarcasm
Well, he is consistent in his lies and flip flopping.
I am encouraged by so many of the flips he’s flopped on, but still insulted that a may of John McCain’s background (military, strength of character, voting against pork barrel/special interests, etc., etc.) was pushed aside for this empty suit with a bossy, witchy wife.
To change opinion when presented with new data is pretty common, and normally desirable. That’s pretty much how science works. Unfortunately, in politics it seems that the normal behavior is to ignore the facts, and work from belief.
McCain, while apparently not the best choice, at least came across as reasonably competent. Palin, on the other hand came across as a flake. Surely there were much better choices.
