    "South Park" is coming up soon. Watch it 5 times, and you'll understand. Maybe. They also poke fun at the idiots on the Left, so you might actually like it.

    President Obama might be under some illusion he's the 4th best President but the foundational core which took him into office is literally eroding right out from under his 4th rate feet.

    And Cenk is right about Gingrich but even worse the republican idiots will vote in a replacement just as bad. Just as Obama is Bush term 3, if the republicans carry the day, their voting track record is they'll vote in Obama term 2 under the label republican.

    Oh, don't like what I said about stupid republicans? Then on election day proven me wrong and for :censored2:ING once vote in somebody who actually reins in gov't. Otherwise stop pretending to be WHAT YOU AIN'T!

    I'll give you that Obama is probably arrogant, but why the double standard? As Wk points out, there is not a single republican candidate that lacks this, uh, quality/attribute. But for them, the right seems to cheer loudest for the brashest display of hubris. Why?

    Simple, to try to win.
    There is a fine line between arrogance and confidence. Would you support someone that is not confident that they can do better than the others wanting to take on the task? Don't kid yourself, all people are drawn to confidence.

    Confidence is very enticing.

    And the difference between confidence and arrogance is...?

    ...strictly a matter of personal preference?

    delivery

    Which of itself is subject to the preference of each member of the audience.

    Wouldn't that be interpretation ?

    Ok. So the difference between arrogance and confidence is interpretation, not delivery and interpretation is a function of the listener not the speaker. Therefore, when someone sees Obama as arrogant and Gingrich/Cain/Bachman/Perry/Paul as confident we are told more about the listener than we are about the speaker.

    I think exaggerating your improtance in an overbearing manner fits Obama. He has displayed the action of "do it my way or I'll take my toys home" many times. He's like a bully. Maybe in his youth, someone instilled the self pride (which is good) a little too much and gave him an attitude......JMO.
