– The Bottom Line –
'Give the devil its due' You can say a lot about Barack Hussein Obama but in the end you have to concede that he's doing an excellent job in the White House. Of course it's not the job you want him to do but it is the job he set out to do. And for those who refuse to consider the facts and believe that Obama loves America and is doing a great job than I have a very iconic bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
To a narcissist like Obama , the wants, needs and well being of others is, except for lip service, not on their radar screen. Every consideration and every decision he makes is based on what benefits he will get from them and how it will advance his personal and political agenda.
