Obama in a paragraph

Linda Chavez is a writer I often read but seldom (if ever) quote.  Today, though, I thought the opening paragraph in an article she wrote perfectly summarized everything one needs to know (and fear) about Obama:

Hubris is the word that comes to mind as I listen to President Obama lay out his plan to rescue the economy, create 4 million jobs, halve the deficit in four years, and give quality health care to every American. The man has big ambitions and an even bigger ego. It has been one of the most troubling aspects of his character as it has emerged on the national scene in the last two years. He seems, almost literally, to believe he walks on water. No one — no matter how talented — could accomplish a fraction of what Obama has planned in a good economy, much less the weakened one we have right now. Worse, he thinks he can do this simply by taxing the rich, a fantasy only someone who knows nothing about human behavior, much less the U.S. tax system, could possibly believe.

I’ve mentioned hubris too in connection with Obama, but Chavez does a better job.

    Earlier this evening, I watched Jim Lehrer interviewing President Obama on PBS’ “News Hour” program. It reminded me of my summer Sundays in the country. Genuflections in the morning and softballs in the afternoon.

    What most galls and annoys me is that even arithmetic seems to be expected to bow to his will.
