Do All Tyrants Have Huge Egos? Obama Pitches His Own Book

Original post made by Tea Party Proud on Feb 14, 2013

At today's Google+ "fireside hangout" with President Obama, the president was asked to recommend a book that would help opponents understand his politics. Obama immediately responded, "Other than my own, I assume? I don't want to be pitching my own book!"

Some lamestream media outlets were happy to bury that little exchange. The liberal Washington Post simply skipped over the mention of Obama's book completely, even though it reported about Obama's other book choices. ABC News didn't see fit to write up the exchange. didn't cover it either.

If nobody covers Obama's ego problem, does it make a sound?

On another front, Joe Biden, Obama's little chained puppy, celebrated Valentine's day by saying L-O-V-E is my favorite three-letter word.

E-G-O = a three letter word that equals tyranny.

TPP...if you dont like what your listening to/watching just stop. Nobody is forcing you to listen/watch google+, whom ever is featured. Nobody is forcing you to read the books they suggest either. Thats the nice thing about our american democratic society, you have a choice. Those that truly live under tyranny do not.

What?! A leader with a big ego?! Unbelievable! All the famous leaders throughout history I can think of all had very tiny egos like FDR, Truman, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Winston Churchill, General George Patton, Queen Elizabeth I, etc, etc..

Wow, a national leader with a big ego...

Oh Sam you can be such a pill. Don't you GET it? Its like the picture of the king with all the people living in his stomach. We are Obamba's body politic and he's the big brainy egotist maniac monarch whose trying to take every bodies guns away. He wants all our neighborhoods to turn into little Bengazis, and then the tyrants forces will swoop down and estalish a full dictatorship. I don't understand how anyone can deny this is happening right under our noses.

Sorry, logic keeps surfacing here for me rather than paranoia

If someone asks you for a book rec that helps explain YOUR politics, wouldnt first person resource be just that?

It seems like you are putting yourself in the pit of the stomach. What an interesting route you choose to live by.

Nancy, I hope you recall your words the next time you and your left wing buddies start bashing Fox News and websites like Drudge and Breitbart. To do anything else would give give the appearance of a hypocritical double standard and I'm sure you tolerant leftists don't want that label, even if it is deserved most of the time.

Sooooo....when you hear the awful truth,
Just put your hands over your ears and
yell 'blah blah blah' so you don't have to
hear it. If you don't hear it, it doesn't exist!
Is that how libs get through the day?
Unbelievably naive.

I was at the supermarket today, and several newspapers said that Hillary was coming out with a book and it tells about all the secret meetings Obama and his wife are having all the time with communist leaders from Moslem countries.

I've also seen the headlines. Hillary has never forgiven Obama for the way he unseated her royal highness back in 2004. Now it appears to be payback time. It's kind of funny. Obama is siting his books in order to make himself rich, but Hillary is coming out with a book that will lead to him being impeached before the year is out. The presidensy may end up in Boehner's hands. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
