Brilliant Prophecy from 93 Years Ago
#1
Quote:H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat.

He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.

"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."

---H.L. Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920


So it was written and so it has come to pass.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Anyone who thinks Obama is a fool, is himself a fool. He is not a fool. He may or may not be narcissistic.

This is not to say that I admire the guy or think highly of him, but he is by no means a fool. He certainly knows what he is doing, although I would reason some of the reactions to his actions were not expected by him. Particularly concerning Russia.
