    Obama = Ghandi, Mandela?

    Do you see Obama on the same level as Ghandi and Mandela?

    "What it takes is ordinary citizens who keep believe, who are committed to fighting and pushing and inching this country closer and closer to our highest ideals. And I said in 2008, 'that I am not a perfect man and I will not be a perfect president.' But I promised you, but I promised you, I promised you back then that I would always tell you what I believe. I would always tell you where I stood," he also said at a fundraiser in NYC.

    Obama is a narcissistic buffoon.
    "It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - D. Webster

    Come on now Obama, you are nowhere near a Gandhi, especially since you perpetrate acts that Gandhi would find sickening.

    Just the idea and the comparison. No offense intended to you.

    I thought to myself the other day...

    Between Barack Obama and Ron Paul, who really deserved the Nobel Peace Prize?

    Well that is a painfully misleading headline. Nowhere in that clip did he compare himself to either Gandhi or Madela.

    Niether, though Obama's proposed policies would do more for peace than Paul's.
