« Hussein Obama walks out on The Jew in the room... again. | Main | Defiance Quote of the Day »

It seems Obama can't open his mouth these days without disclosing more than he wants to disclose about himself. The reference to Reagan -- "Would Ronald Reagan be sitting here?" -- is especially revealing. The subtext seems to be: "My mere presence in this room -- haggling with you puny Republican twerps -- is demeaning to a man of my stature. My exemplar -- Ronald Reagan -- of whom I am the reincarnation -- would never sit here and take this stuff from a bunch of losers -- and I'm not going to take it either. I'm outta here!" Apparently, at this point in the proceeding, Obama was feeling the heat and decided to get the hell out of the room before it got any hotter. But, being the narcissist that he is, he couldn't just split and run; he could only make his escape after providing a rationale for splitting and running. And what better rationale than to say, in effect, "I'm only doing what one of the strongest presidents in history would have done." Then, having provided exculpation for himself, he was on his merry way. The old adage, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going," has always lent itself to two different interpretations. Most people interpret "get going" as "get busy and solve the problem." But Obama interprets "get going" as "go someplace else and save your hide." Some tough guy, huh?
