Remember when he got a Nobel Peace Prize for doing…nothing?
And now this:
Last night, Obama was honored in Boston with another award, this time from Caroline Kennedy and her family and friends.
….It’s been more than half a century since John F. Kennedy asked us to cast aside our narrow self-interest and take up the chase of a greater ambition: our collective capacity to do big things, especially when it’s hard, It was a call to citizenship as true as the words of our founding and a conviction that helped guide me to public service as a younger man – a belief in the possibilities of our democracy and the power of what we, the people, can do together….
In other words: All you bumbling losers spend your time selfishly pursuing your “own narrow self-interests,” while I, your not-so-humble awardee, heeded JFK’s call to devote my life to “the greater good.”
I’m wondering, though, if “the greater good” includes a $60M book deal and $400,000 per speech fee.
Anyway, if anyone should get an award, it should be me, because I watched the entire Obama speech, so that you wouldn’t have to.
And yes, to borrow a phrase, it made me more than ‘mildly nauseous,’ watching him bask in the glow of the gushing group of Liberal elites.
He did not mention “He Who Must Not Be named,” er, President Trump. But poor Barry is peeved that his “legacy” is being undone.
Former president Barack Obama has vigorously defended Obamacare as he called on members of Congress to show courage in the debate over the future of health care in America.
Obama was careful not to mention Donald Trump by name in Boston on Sunday night as he referenced the current administration’s efforts to dismantle much of his signature health care law.
‘I hope that current members of Congress recognize it takes little courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential – but it takes great courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm,’ Obama said as he accepted the JFK Profile in Courage Award.
‘I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right.’
