Apparently, Barry’s formative education overlooked some basic tenets of American representative government.
The posh Punohou academy in Honolulu missed it, the Muslim madrassa in Indonesia missed it, and especially his special tutor Frank Marshall Davis (Communist Party USA member #47544) missed it. His covert trip to Pakistan in the 1980s did not provide illumination, as far as we know. And, of course, Occidental College, Columbia, and Harvard Law would never think to teach this simple truth in the 1980s.
That is, winning an election in America does not grant license to RULE over objections of the opposition. Rather, victory confers the OBLIGATION to GOVERN by proposing policies, seeking concurrence from your party AND the opposition, and finding ways to accomplish things of worth for the entire electorate, not just your cronies.
Obama, driven by coddled self-esteem and raging narcissism, simply cannot see that it is HE WHO MUST COMPROMISE in order to accomplish anything. But of course, that only applies if he shares the goal of improving the lives of all Americans.
I have grave doubts about such a motivation.
“For anyone late to the “weird things Barack Obama said in his autobiography” party, Obama described:
‘There standing astride the road was a towering giant at least ten stories tall with the body of a man and the face of an ape. That’s Hanuman, Lolo said as we circled the statue, the monkey god. I turned around in my seat, mesmerized by the solitary figure, so dark against the sun, poised to leap into the sky as puny traffic swirled around its feet. He’s a great warrior, Lolo said firmly, strong as a hundred men. When he fights the demons, he’s never defeated.’
“Okay. So no Fourth of July parades, no Memorial Day picnics, hot dogs, apple pie, fireworks, no John Philip Souza. But he had Hanuman. And he thinks if you’re different, you can’t make it in America. He should check his business card because I think his business card has a pretty cool address and a pretty significant title under his name,”
Obama is not like us, and he does not have the background to understand us.
