Nine Most Arrogant Quotes from the Obama's

Nine Most Arrogant Quotes from the Obama's, from the Independent Journal Review

1. Really Nice Prison First Lady Michelle Obama recently likened living in the White House to being in a “really nice prison.” While she may suffer from a lack of privacy, her comment was made in Tanzania, where being imprisoned is nothing like taking $100 million jaunts around the globe.

2. Behave Yourselves! “Americans, behave yourselves,” President Obama said during a joint press conference with South African President Jacob Zuma on Saturday. Obama complained – as he has in the past – that “my press” tries to squeeze “three or four or five questions in there,” while complimenting Zuma on his more obedient media.

3. Free Flow of Information “I can tell you that in the United States, the fact that we have free Internet — or unrestricted Internet access is a source of strength, and I think should be encouraged. Now, I should tell you, I should be honest, as President of the United States, there are times where I wish information didn't flow so freely because then I wouldn't have to listen to people criticizing me all the time.” The comments to the Chinese delegation take on new light due to the AP & Fox scandals.

4. Bitter Clingers "You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." – President Obama speaks to wealthy San Francisco fundraisers in April of 2008.

5. Proud of My Country "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country,” Michelle Obama said on February 18, 2008, “because it feels like hope is making a comeback.” Michelle Obama is a Harvard-trained lawyer and was making a deliberate statement to a large Milwaukee crowd.

6. Better Than Everyone "I think that I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I'll tell you right now that I'm gonna think I'm a better political director than my political director." Maybe so, but you aren't that hot at speaking off teleprompter.

7. Sunday Segregation “At times… anger is exploited by politicians, to gin up votes along racial lines, or to make up for a politician's own failing. And occasionally it finds voice in the church on Sunday morning, in the pulpit and in the pews. The fact that so many people are surprised to hear that anger in some of Reverend Wright's sermons simply reminds us of the old truism that the most segregated hour of American life occurs on Sunday morning.” President Obama speech on race relations, March 2008

8. Messy Democracy "When I said 'change we can believe in' I didn't say 'change we can believe in tomorrow.' Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we've got this big, messy, tough democracy." President Obama's 50th birthday fundraiser, August 4, 2011.

9. The Great Uniter? "I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as 'us' and 'them' - he doesn't care whether you're a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above... he knows that we all love our country... and he's always ready to listen to good ideas... he's always looking for the very best in everyone he meets." President Obama is above partisan politics? The guy who told his constituents 'voting is the best revenge,' 'take a gun to a knife fight,' 'get in their faces,' and 'punish your enemies'?
