So, as was said before our current president can't be more obviously narcissistic. However, from just reading the original article I had no idea how much so. I learned two things from the biography section at the White House website. #1, I'm a bit of a history nut and that section is a time vampire for you history nerds out there and #2 Obama is probably the most self-absorbed person imaginable. Here is the link and some examples:
I will start your tour with Calvin Coolidge. At the bottom of this biography is the first of the self-absorption. It continues for every president going forward to current. My favorite one has to be here:
President John F. Kennedy famously suggested the American people: "Ask what you can do for your country." In 1961, the Peace Corps was created, facilitating service among citizens working toward peace in developing countries. In 2011, President Obama celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps with a Presidential Proclamation.Seriously. Look at me. I did... nothing.
As you read through these you should begin to notice a pattern. Obama didn't actually do anything to warrant any kind of "look at me" credit. These are all other presidents' accomplishments to which he is hooking his cart. Way to define your presidency. Actually, I think that does a darn good job of doing just that.
