Obama: 'I Beat Myself Up' Worse Than Anyone

 by Breitbart News 20 Dec 2013

On Friday at the White House, President Obama lashed out at ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl and Fox News’ Ed Henry, explaining that he was self-critical enough that he did not need to hear critical questions from the two of them. “It’s not that I don’t engage in a lot of self-reflection here,” he said in response to a question from Karl. “I promise I beat myself up even worse than you or Ed Henry does, on any given day, but I’ve also got to wake up in the morning and make sure that I do better the next day.”

Obama’s relationships with the press corps have been on the downslope for months. White House press secretary Jay Carney has engaged repeatedly in battles with Karl over issues ranging from failures of the Obamacare rollout to Benghazi; he has ignored Ed Henry to the point where Henry walked out of a White House press briefing.

President Obama has also repeatedly attempted to portray himself as self-critical, stating repeatedly that he wanted to get outside the Washington, D.C. bubble and that the White House had made him a humbler person.

Contrary to press reports, Obammy isn't vacationing in Hawaii. He's taken a detour to Fantasy Island.

As usual, it's all about him and his personal emotional state as opposed to what his policies are doing to the country.

Yep! We should worry about one person's emotionally well-being compared to an entire nation's. He's the definition of narcissism.

Anyone president who thinks he beats himself up more than other people do needs some psychological help. :woohoo:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

We've known Obastard needs serious psychological help from day 1.
