Barack Obama Starts To Believe – In His Own Hype

OBAMANIA Watch РAnorak’s look at Barack Obama in the news.


“In his closed door meeting with House Democrats Tuesday night, presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama delivered a real zinger, according to a witness, suggesting that he was beginning to believe his own hype.”


As he marches toward Inauguration Day (Election Day is but a milestone on that path), Obama’s biggest challenger may not be Republican John McCain but rather his own hubris. . . . On his presidential-style visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem last week, Obama left a written prayer, intercepted by an Israeli newspaper, asking God to ‘help me guard against pride and despair.’ He seems to have the despair part under control, but the pride could be a problem.


Obama, who acknowledged that he needed a nap, stood up to say farewell to the audience of journalists, many of whom gave him another standing ovation.

Do believe the hype…
