Obama’s Been Waiting for Himself

In a recent article, the indomitably clever Mark Steyn wrote that he believes that Obama probably looks at the USA as merely an “interesting sociological experiment” amongst the broader international scene.  Steyn also describes the way Obama’s internationalist pose doesn’t seem comfortable to many Americans.  There are plenty of people around the world who are “post-modern” or “post-national” like our Dear Leader, who all sound a bit weird giving speeches to the people who they want to lead.  This type of leadership tends to disappoint local nationals who thought their leaders were actually interested in, well, leading, rather than giving soaring speeches and shifting blame!

There’s something terribly narcissistic about this crowd.  As Steyn notes:

As someone once said, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” When you’ve spent that long waiting in line for yourself, it’s bound to be a disappointment.

That really encapsulates the Left’s increasing view of the Obama Nation — so much promise, but where’s the beef?
