Last night, President Obama’s campaign Twitter feed posted the following tweet:
In other words, there are no red or blue states … just the Obama States. You have to love the narcissism of a president who posts a picture of himself at the center of America, presenting himself as greater than the country, all of which is united under his hopey-changey administration.
This is 1984-type stuff. This is the most polarizing president in American history, and he's busy telling us that we're all united under his auspices. War is peace. Poverty is wealth. Polarization is unity. United States is Barack States.
Sometimes I think we are moving towards our own version of Argentina and the adulation of Eva Peron. I've been to Buenos Aires and seen her tomb. Amazing how it is constantly adorned with fresh flowers from those clinging to that mythical persona. Our own version is The One.
