Obama Compares Himself to Ghandhi, Nelson Mandela

Narcissists think very highly of themselves, but President Barack Obama is not your average run-of-the-mill narcissist. Speaking at a fundraiser in NYC today, President Obama extolled his own virtues (since no one else will do it). He praised himself for doing more for his country than any other president in the past decade.

Stopping just short of comparing himself to Jesus (as John Lennon once famously did), Obama likened his humanitarian efforts to those of Ghandi and Nelson Mandela.

“The civil rights movement was hard. Winning the vote for women was hard. Making sure that workers had some basic protections was hard,” said President Obama, explaining what happened to that change he promised Americans.

“Around the world, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, what they did was hard. It takes time. It takes more than a single term. It takes more than a single president. It takes more than a single individual,” Obama said.

That’s funny. That’s exactly what I said: that a single individual — namely, Barack Obama, couldn’t do all the things he was promising that he would do if he was elected. But you voted him into office anyway.

“What it takes is ordinary citizens who keep believe, who are committed to fighting and pushing and inching this country closer and closer to our highest ideals. And I said in 2008, ‘that I am not a perfect man and I will not be a perfect president.’ But I promised you, but I promised you, I promised you back then that I would always tell you what I believe. I would always tell you where I stood,” he also said at a fundraiser in NYC.

    Aww Aunty Sandy you be reaching real high into the sky with that one.
    To be honest I am more fearful of Presidents who aim low. I am glad he aimed high because when you aim for the stars you may not hit the stars but you will surely pass the cloud. Any leader that doesnt aim high is not a leader they belong with the followers

    BUT he saying that “he’s not racist, he just hates Obama” or something along those lines :coffee: #damnshame

    I’ve got a feeling this election is gonna be uglier than the last one :no: smh

  • LiberianJewels7

    @ spongebobfan I’m not feeling them either. Well u know what they say… If u don’t vote, don’t complain. I may just keep my mouth shut for another 4 years. Enjoy your weekend:-)

  • BayMami_de4

    Voted for President Obama in ’08 and will vote for him again!

  • screwball69

    Sandra,

    Tell us why you really mad.

    And then I’m going to ask you why you have an opinion on OUR president when you’re not even registered to vote. You’re not willing to try and change whose in the White House but you stay reaching for something to say about him. You’re not even American, nor do you have any interest in applying for citizenship.

    So again, you’re not trying to change the situation, but you’re steady talking about it.

    I just want to know why? :lol:

    Don’t be trying to get funny and ban me either :nono:

    You know I like you. I’m just confused by your antics.

  • Jessie

    First of all Sandra Rose, you need to show some respect and STOP referring to him as “Obama”, it’s PRESIDENT OBAMA!! Second, when it comes to President Obama you have zero credibility. Your HATE of him is getting old. I think your “midnight” ass has a problem with light-skinned black people (i.e., President Obama, Beyonce, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Alicia Keys, etc.). Go buy yourself some self-esteem and leave those very beautiful people alone. Jealousy is so not sexy!

  • Jessie

    One more thing:

    Obama 2012! Yes We Can….Again!!!!

  • GottaBigOne

    @Jessie

    OOH!!!

    You DONE DID IT NOW. son!

    Ms. Rose is gonna GET YOU for those Scathing remarks you just made!!!

    Night All.
