The Messiah complex

What is wrong with this guy?
President Barack Obama said that he "would rather be a really good one-term president" than have two mediocre terms. In an interview to air Monday, the president stated his preference as negotiations have stalled over the health care reform package he championed.
This "sacrifice for the greater good" act is wearing thin, especially since the man's arrogance is well-known. His unbounded obsession with getting health care reform passed has spawned a 2,000 page piece of legislation that must be propped up every month with a new special interest outrage: the Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, the union exemption on "Cadillac" plans, etc. But even though the public is against both the process and the product, he's going to keep plowing ahead, even if it means he must give up all he's gained.

Because that's the kind of guy Obama is.

Extra - From Peter Wehner: "Obama's wax wings."

More - Mark Steyn: "According to Barack Obama, the problem is he overestimated you dumb rubes' ability to appreciate what he's been doing for you." (H/T Maggie's Farm)
