Last night, on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” The Narcissist defiantly proclaimed “it doesn’t really matter” who the Republicans nominate against him.
The Narcissist told interviewer Steve Kroft he’s ready to take on either Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney and asked voters to contrast his vision with that offered by the GOP nominee.
The Narcissist predicted a clear choice for the voters: “The core philosophy that they’re expressing is the same. And the contrast in visions between where I want to take the country and… where they say they want to take the country is going to be stark.”

For the first time, I agree with The Narcissist.
If there’ll even be an election next year, it will be a clear choice for the voters. It’s either four more years for The Narcissist to complete his total destruction of America, or voters can choose to turn this country away from the road of ruinage.
I have a message for liberals and Democrats:
More than two years ago, Obama said he wants “a new legal basis” for the preventive indefinite detention of Americans. And the ever-obliging Senate has done exactly that on December 1, by passing S. 1867. Is this what you want for yourself and your children?
Watching the six GOP candidates in last Saturday’s Iowa debate (Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann), I was impressed with the humanity of them all — what decent people they are, and how much they clearly love America.
All, excepting Newt, who impressed me as articulate but arrogant and someone who can turn nasty very quickly. That worries me because, if he becomes the GOP nominee, he will lose as American voters generally pick, for President, the “nicer” guy who has a better smile. It also doesn’t help that Newt is pudgy and paunchy. What can I say? — American voters are shallow.
Citing research by UCLA Professor Albert Mehrabian indicating that non-verbal communication — including a speaker’s smile — can be even more important than what is actually said, communications consultant Jon Kraushar maintains that the history of U.S. presidential elections shows that the winners are those whose smiles convey a positive message that inspires rather than irritates voters. Think Ronald Reagan’s “aw shucks” sunny disposition….
Having said that about Newt, my conclusion about last Saturday’s Iowa debate is that, hands down, any one of the six is light years better than the narcissistic squatter in the White House.
