Obama Narcissus

In an article at the Weekly Standard, “American Narcissus“, Jonathan V. Last has compiled a very comprehensive list of anecdotal evidence of Obama’s narcissism.  He even mentions the story of a beloved classmate of Obama at Harvard Law school that they had a Obamameter:

“One of our classmates once famously noted that you could judge just how pretentious someone’s remarks in class were by how high they ranked on the ‘Obamanometer,’ a term that lasted far longer than our time at law school. Obama didn’t just share in class—he pontificated. He knew better than everyone else in the room, including the teachers. ”

Obama’s career before becoming a senator suggests that affirmative action played a large role.  Last outlines how the University of Chicago wanted him as a faculty member because he was the editor of the Harvard Law Review and an African American.  With the effects of affirmative action policy in full bloom, Obama is the first affirmative action president, and has become an utter failure of incompetence.  This demonstrates why we must fully reject affirmative action and diversity hiring.
