Obama's Narcissism

Comentator Charles Krauthammer asks the question, "Who does Obama think he is?" in this biting column which pinpoints the incredible ego of Barack Obama. Only he would have the nerve to address Europe with the backdrop of the Brandenburg Gate without having earned it. Unbelieveable.

"Americans are beginning to notice Obama’s elevated opinion of himself. There’s nothing new about narcissism in politics. Every senator looks in the mirror and sees a president. Nonetheless, has there ever been a presidential nominee with a wider gap between his estimation of himself and the sum total of his lifetime achievements?
Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted “present” nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself."
