The following are not my words:
From MSN NOW:
What photograph could best convey the importance of civil rights figure Rosa Parks? An image of her with Martin Luther King, Jr.? Her black-and-white booking photo? How about a picture of Barack Obama sitting on a bus? The latter was the (perhaps poor) choice the president made yesterday when he honored the 55th anniversary of Parks’ bus protest by tweeting an image of himself taken in April at the Henry Ford Museum. Conservative websites were quick to call the commander in chief a “narcissist” and Twitter users have blasted him as egotistical and grandiose. Come on, prez, didn’t you learn anything after the Neil Armstrong fiasco?
Just when you think President Obama’s impossibly large ego can’t grow further, he makes it happen!
President Obama loves to insert himself in other people’s biographies. He also loves to honor people, most recently Neil Armstrong and Vice President Biden, with pictures of himself. All. About. Him. His laser-like focus never wavers from his own image.
And the narcissism continues: To honor the 57th anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, President Obama paid homage with a picture of himself.
A personal moment, giving him to time to reflect, as always, on himself.
Rosa Parks’ history? She didn’t build that without Obama’s help. Criminy! Even honoring Rosa Parks is simply yet another reason for President Obama to stroke his own ego.
