Obama Biographer: 'The World Seems to Disappoint Him'
Daniel Halper
May 6, 2014 8:11 AM

David Remnick, an Obama biographer and the editor of the New Yorker, said this morning on national TV that President Obama is disappointed in the world:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mj8zQdXz-l0" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mj8zQdXz-l0</a>


"The profile [of President Obama] that I published in the New Yorker was somebody that eerily, eerily seemed to be claiming himself--it was a sense of not giving up, but of deep frustration--that was the profile that I published in the New Yorker. Somebody frustrated and disappointed," said Remnick, who has proven to be deeply sympathetic to this president.

"And that's what's frustrating to me sometimes about Obama is that the world seems to disappoint him," he continued to laughter from others on the TV set. "Republicans disappoint him, Bashar al-Assad disappoints him, Putin as well. And the fighting spirit sometimes is lacking in the performative aspects of the presidency."

But that hasn't kept Remnick from souring on Obama. "Do I think that at the end of eight years this will go down as a terrible presidency? I don't. You do. I don't. I think an enormous amount has been achieved."

He is too self-absorbed to focus on other people and understand the nature of the people he is dealing with.  And so, he is easily rolled by charlatans and petty thieves.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

He will be overrated by history, since he is black. Like affirmative action.

For the next 20 years or so, but eventually history will have its revenge on him.

Yes, and mean as I am, I'm glad that he's young enough to see the day when history tells his true story.  :smokin:

History is written by the victor. This is true. But history did not have video, twitter, facebook, gigabytes of data.
 
In this case, history will tell the story of Obama. It is my belief that he will become to be known as the 'traitor President'.
 
See? He is once again the first of a kind to be President. We have never had a person who hates America as President before, either.
