You probably know by now that President Obama told Steve Kroft in an unaired portion of his 60 Minutes interview earlier this month that he had accomplished more in his first two years in office than any other President “”with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln.”
John Hinderaker of Powerline (who drew everyone’s attention to this display of immodesty) does a nice job of comparing Obama’s first two years in office with that of Ronald Reagan.
Well, it’s good to know that President Obama believes that signing the Stimulus Bill into law is a greater accomplishment than George Washington presiding over the passage of the Bill of Rights.
It’s good to know that President Obama believes that caving into Russia on ballistic missile defense is a greater foreign policy achievement than the Louisiana Purchase under President Thomas Jefferson.
It’s good to know that President Obama believes that apologizing for America’s sins, real or imagined, did more good than President John F. Kennedy establishing the Peace Corps.
If Reagan were still around to hear Obama’s bragging I suspect he would say, “There he goes again.”
