And presidents don’t take special credit for doing what presidents do – make hard decisions. But then I guess a small and petty man has to jump up and down, saying “look at me, look at me,” not only because he actually made a right decision, but just because he is so Barney Fife.
Obama reminds me of a very funny episode of Andy Griffith where Barney was singing in a choir. He could not carry a tune and sounded awful. So Andy said to him that his microphone was so sensitive, he should sing a real soft. He kept encouraging him to sing softer and softer until he was not making a sound. As planned, they had somebody off stage do the singing and Barney was just mouthing. When Barney heard the beautiful singing coming from his mouth (he thought), he was noticably shocked at how good he sounded, but almost immediately he got all puffed up with pride and took full credit. Here’s a clip from that Andy Griffith show. Pretty funny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nKlI5D89xE
The video below illustrating obama spiking the footbasll is Wow! I don’t know who put it together but it’s perfect.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsrSAqRrCc0&feature=youtu.be
P. S.: More “me.” Talks to the troops, gives shout-out to himself.
