Barack Obama, the epitome of modesty and hard work

Via Mediaite explains the defference between himself and Ted Cruz:

President Obama does not see any similarities between himself and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). During an interview with the Associated Press released Saturday morning, Obama rejected the notion that he “set a precedent” for first term senators like Cruz, Rand Paul (R-KY) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) who have sought out the spotlight early in their political careers.

“If you recall, when I came into the Senate my attitude was, I should just keep a pretty low profile in the Senate and just do the work,” Obama told the AP, harkening back to early 2005. He admitted that the media may not have let him keep that low profile, but added, “I didn’t go around courting the media, and I certainly didn’t go around trying to shut down the government.”

“And so I recognize that in today’s media age, being controversial, taking controversial positions, rallying the most extreme parts of your base–whether it’s left or right–is a lot of times the fastest way to get attention or raise money, but it’s not good for government,” Obama continued. “It’s not good for the people we’re supposed to be serving.”

Unlike the brash Ted Cruz, Barack Obama gave his first nationally televised speech before he reached the Senate. At this point in his sole Senate term, Obama was (supposedly) writing his second memoir. In March 2007 (after just slightly more than two years in office) Obama announced he was running for President.

Meanwhile, here is a comprehensive list of all the work Obama was “just doing” during his first two years in Washington D.C.:

    Yah, well, it’s easier to be relatively quiet for a year or so if you only have to meet with donors and banksters and plan the future hagiography for your support. Those are pretty quiet events.

    If your source of support is the People, however, you kinda have to be a little louder.

    any respect I had for park rangers is gone. If they had any self respect they would join the vets not stand there with dogs to keep them from Memorials to their fallen friends, who died for ALL OUR freedom

      A cousin just emailed me that the feds are trying to run off fishermen who are are buzzing them in fast boats off Padre Island National Seashore. Park service closed the roads so he and a buddy rode cross country on horseback and watched from the dunes this afternoon. He said they felt like “desperadoes running from the law”. Their saddlebags were full of snacks. LOL.

  4. Ya know, he REALLY DOES BELIEVE all his bullsh*t.

    • Lulu says:

      Yes he does. I never knew megalomania was this ridiculous. It is cringe-worthy and embarrassing. He is a dumb braggart.

      Have they lost all of their advertisers because Obama has shrunk the economy so much no one can afford a crappy ad on Family Feud? Good! Starve mass media.Thanks to Obamacare no one is going to be able to afford squat after paying the exploding health INSURANCE premiums so the sellers won’t need any ads. Morons.

    Vets Break Through Barricade at Iwo Jima Memorial…

    I am so tempted to take a ride over to Assateague National Park and see what is up … like barricades …

  13. 1539days says:

    I think the House should pass a budget bill to defund the people who put up barricades.

  14. The Klown says:

    Unfortunately, I am.

    • I watched it when it was “Best of Carson” and during the first year or so until Bill Murray came along. His mix of humor and ugly meanness appealed to many but couldn’t pass my smell test. Still don’t watch him.
