Obama: Pride before the fall?

It’s no secret that President Obama has an inflated view of himself.  This becomes crystal clear when the President, as he routinely does, blames everybody but himself for the nation’s problems.  A leader who does not acknowledge his or her own mistakes is clearly suffering from an overdose of hubris.  Because President Obama apparently can’t help but display his arrogance, it came as no surprise to many when he declared himself to be the fourth greatest president in the history of the United States in a recent CBS interview (an interview that many will understandably confuse with a game of slow-pitch softball).

For a fleeting moment, I thought Obama may have finally come around to reality and was trying to say that he should be considered the fourth worst president.  But instead — and in typical Obama arrogance — the President put his administration at the top stating, “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president.”  And then, after a brief pause, he begrudgingly permitted “the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln.”  See the video clip by clicking HERE.
