Evidence of Obama’s narcissism cited by Fox News pundit is something Bush also said

With each passing day, the leading voices of the  right-wing noise machine become increasingly silly in indulging their  pathological hatred of Barack Obama. Consider, for example, non-practicing psychiatrist and notorious Fox News crackpot Charles Krauthammer’s recent claim that Obama is “clearly a narcissist.” Krauthammer’s evidence of Obama’s narcissism consists of two elements: 1) Something Obama didn’t actually say, and 2) something George Bush also said when he was president.

Hawkish Republicans can’t help but squirm when Obama becomes hawkish, too

President Obama outlined a strategy last night to bomb the hell out of ISIS forces wherever they might be found — in Iraq or Syria or anywhere else.

How dare this Democrat with the foreign-sounding  name assume the mantle of military toughness. That kind of thing is supposed to the exclusive province of the GOP, America’s self-styled Daddy Party. But what can Republican hawks say about Obama’s strategy without...
