In a recent rambling interview with New York Times’ Peter Baker, the Narcissist-in-Chief was in full delusional mode when he imperiously said he “expected” Republicans to “cooperate” with him in advancing his agenda even if the GOP wins the November 2 elections. Then Baker wrote this:
While Clinton made late-night phone calls around Washington to vent or seek advice, Obama rarely reaches outside the tight group of advisers like Emanuel, Axelrod, Rouse, Messina, Plouffe, Gibbs and Jarrett, as well as a handful of personal friends. “He’s opaque even to us,” an aide told me. “Except maybe for a few people in the inner circle, he’s a closed book.” In part because of security, just 15 people have his BlackBerry e-mail address. On long Air Force One flights, he retreats to the conference room and plays spades for hours, maintaining a trash-talking contest all the while, with the same three aides: Reggie Love, his personal assistant; Marvin Nicholson, his trip director; and Pete Souza, his White House photographer. (When I asked if he had an iPad, Obama said, “I have an iReggie, who has my books, my newspapers, my music all in one place.”)
Doesn’t it inspire your confidence and pride-of-country to know that your president spends HOURS playing spades and trash-talking? I had to look up what the latter means.
Wikipedia says trash-talk is “a form of boast or insult commonly heard in competitive situations (such as sports events). It is often used to intimidate the opposition, but can also be used in a humorous spirit. Trash-talk is often characterized by use of hyperbole, or figurative language.” An example is “Yo momma’s so fat, it took me a train and two busses to get on her good side!”
As for the depersonalizing objectifying “iReggie” remark, can you imagine the uproar in the MSM-liberal community if a white President were to say that about his black “personal assistant,” referring to him as a nonhuman gadget?
But then, we hear Reggie does provide the Teabagger-in-Chief with complete personal service [cough, cough], satisfaction guaranteed. 😉
