Thanks to PJ Media, you can watch President Obama refer to himself (me, myself and I) 118 times in three minutes while speaking to an audience of mostly young people celebrating India’s Republic Day in New Delhi on Tuesday.
Astonishing, but that’s the American President.
Obama told the crowd, “I realize that the sight of an American president as your chief guest on Republic Day would have once seemed unimaginable. But my visit reflects the possibilities of a new moment.” He pointed out that he was the first American president to participate in the country’s Republic Day and boasted, “And I’m the first American president to come to your country twice!”
Obama also told the enthusiastic crowd that he and Michelle have been strengthened by their Christian faith. “But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” Obama said.
Wait. Stop on that thought for a moment. So it is a good thing, in Obama’s opinion, to hide his true faith?
PJ Media continues writing:
[Obama] added that “too often religion has been used to tap into those darker impulses as opposed to the light of God.” He cited as an example the attack three years ago on a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. The American president, who is suing Catholic nuns to force them to comply with Obamacare’s birth control mandate, told the crowd of Indian young people that “every person has the right to practice their faith how they choose, or to practice no faith at all, and to do so free of persecution and fear and discrimination.”
Obama also talked about inequality in both India and America, as if the two countries are indistinguishable — as if poverty in the U.S. is in any way comparable to poverty in India.
Bloomburg notes “India accounts for about 60 percent of the world’s residents without toilets, according to a report released in May by the World Health Organization and Unicef. The country’s 50 percent open-defecation rate compares with 23 percent in Pakistan, 3 percent in Bangladesh and 1 percent in China, the report said.” Click here for more from Bloomberg.
The video on PJ Media may be found here. It is worth the three minutes and all about Obama according to Obama living on Obama’s world that knows no other. Happy Obama day as some may say worldwide laughing.
Meanwhile millions ask, “Is it 2016 yet?“
