Obama's ego has disconnected him from everyday Americans. He seems bewildered as to why less and less Americans are interested when he slow jams the news on Jimmy Fallon; he seems confused when Americans laugh at his campaign trotting out a "composite woman" to tout his record. He's getting desperate; and he's getting angry.
Worse, he's getting more and more insulated. He has already fundraised with George Clooney and Ricky Martin; in June, he'll fundraise at the house of Ryan Murphy, despicable creator of indoctrination entertainment show "Glee." He's charging $15,000 for photos with him, even as he complains about the disconnect between the 1 percent and the 99 percent. He's somehow finding a way to turn Mitt Romney into a populist.
Obama's arrogance would be amusing were it not so insanely dangerous. When it comes to the world stage, it is Obama's perverse self-assurance that he can right all wrongs merely by talking at them that has doomed much of the Middle East to generations of darkness. When it comes to domestic policy, it is Obama's egotistic belief that he knows best and that Americans are simply ignorant, which has led him to embrace radical causes ranging from nationalization of health care to drilling moratoria.
The American people are an open-minded and tolerant people. But we don't take kindly to being ordered about by a man with a monarchic mind. If Obama doesn't check his ego at the door, he's going to find the door hitting him on the way out.
