We first heard this amusing bit of presidential deception during the campaign, when Obama attacked his critics for criticizing his planned policies. "They want to make this about me," he said. "This isn't about me. It's about you."
Bama, please! His crafty disingenuousness knows no bounds.
He used the same turn of phrase over the last week when discussing the need to pass his nationalization plan for health care: "This isn't about me."
And yet. The National Journal reports that Senator Charles Grassley had a conversation with a Democratic Congressman who had been in health care meetings with Obama. That Congressman was the target of this plaintive appeal from the president: If you don't pass my plan, "you're going to destroy my presidency."
Not about him, huh?
It's always about him.
Caesar needs more power. The Emperor is hungry. He must be fed.
I'll be a guest with Bill tonight---one hour later than usual because of The Bama's 8pm ET press conference (his fourth in just six months. Bama, please!) Tune in to "The O'Reilly Factor" tonight at 9PM ET.
TOMORROW night, I'll be sitting in for O'Reilly, so please make a date with me for that. All on the Fox News Channel.
To all of my devoted and wonderful radio listeners:
You may have been wondering where I've been on the radio over the past few days. While doing the weekday broadcast has been an absolute labor of love, I've recently been overwhelmed by some very special opportunities which I'll be pursuing. But rest assured that you will still be able to get your "Monica Mania Fix:" I'll be continuing the weekend radio program. You can hear it streamed live every Saturday from noon to 3pm ET right here at www.MonicaMemo.com--- or you can listen on my flagship station, 77 WABC in New York (www.WABCRadio.com) from 1pm to 4pm ET. The show is also heard on over 120 stations nationwide. I'll still be on the radio; I just had to change my schedule a bit. Thank you so much for listening during the week and making the show into such a success. I deeply appreciate all of your incredibly loyal support and knowing that you're out there, cheering me on. I'll see you every Wednesday on "The O'Reilly Factor," every weekend on "The McLaughlin Group," every Wednesday in "The Washington Times," and every weekend on the radio---and perhaps elsewhere too. Stay tuned to the website for further announcements. Keep the faith.
