Attention all Bitter Clingies! A Message from the 4th Best President Ever!==> He is also the Most Interesting Person in the Room!

Yes, the Dumb Bastard noted at a fundraiser with basketball superstars Wednesday night, “It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person…”.

President Obama joined a group of former NBA stars at a fundraiser at New York’s Lincoln Center Wednesday night. With Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier, Bill Bradley and other basketball legends sitting nearby — “It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person,” Obama said — the president made a few obligatory remarks about opponent Mitt Romney’s tax and economic plans. And then he addressed the presidential horse race — or basketball game.

“I can’t resist a basketball analogy,” Obama told the crowd, according to a White House pool report. “We are in the fourth quarter. We’re up by a few points but the other side is coming on strong and they play a little dirty.”

“We’ve got a few folks on our team in foul trouble. We’ve got a couple of injuries, and I believe that they’ve got one last run in them.”

“I’d say there’s about seven minutes to go in the game. And [Michael Jordan’s] competitiveness is legendary, and nobody knows better than Michael that if you’ve got a little bit of a lead and there’s about seven minutes to go — that’s when you put them away.”

He never lets us down, does he? It really must be an amazing life where you are #1 Most Interesting Person in the Room all the freaking time! I mean, really, it must be exhausting! And it really must be sad for Mrs. Dumb Bastard–forever relegated to 2nd Most Interesting Person in the Room.

He is…the Most Arrogant Man in the World.

    Obama may not be hated so much if he would stay off the TV for a day, but no, he must keep up his celebrity status.

    “It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person.”

    Try to imagine words like that coming out of Ronald Reagan’s mouth. You can’t, and here’s the reason. These are the words of a child, a narcissist. Me, me, me, I, I, I. Reagan was an adult. He knew it wasn’t about him. He focused on ideas, issues, policies. It was on those things that we supported or opposed him. Reagan never did anything to build a cult of personality.

    I just looked up “narcissism” in the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) to see how many symptoms the DB actually has; the entire list has now been replaced with two words: “See: Obama” … 🙂

    But later in the same game (as I imagine it) “Big Mitt” Romney rejects the arrogant hot-dog Carmelo Obama’s drive to the hoop, recovers the ball and rockets it out to teammate Ryan streaking downcourt for the slam dunk! Team GOP wins at the buzzer, and the nation is saved!

    OT – Re: DTB and WD40 , be careful using WD40 in the house, any overspray on the carpet can get on your shoe bottoms making them dangerously slick when you walk on to a hard surface like tile or wood. Even if you don’t slip right away you’ll be smearing this invisible lubricant all over the floors for future accidents. Critters won’t like it on their paws either. (It does make the house smell nice though).

    Let me guess, he drinks “Dos Equis” when Mooseshell lets him.

    “But that’s enough of me talking about myself. Tell me, what do you have to say about me?”

    Just occurred to me, to be the most interesting person in a room, any room, every room, you have to have tremendous accomplishments or be a blank slate. You can’t have college grades public that show that you were a mundane student. You can’t have medical records public that show that you are afflicted with X. You can’t be Superman or Einstein or the most decorated soldier in WWII, but you can be a blank slate. No wonder he doesn’t release anything, he would cease to be the most interesting person in the room, and he would know it.

    I had no idea that Obama spent so much time alone.

  11. ancientwrrior says:

    Tammy, the DB is the Kim Jong Il of the U.S., he’s just Kim’s brother of another color.

  12. NeverSurrender says:

    In 1962, JFK held a dinner in the White House for Nobel Prize winners and remarked, “..this is probably the greatest concentration of talent and genius in this house except for perhaps those times when Thomas Jefferson ate alone.”

    Obama seems to believe his Nobel Peace Prize puts him on the same level as Thomas Jefferson.

    Funny, I always think of O’DB as “number 2.”
