Likelihood of Success

Ron Coleman’s pretty good blog

OK, so he’s a weensy bit impressed with himself

Posted by Ron Coleman on November 28, 2008

K. Ryan James (who is in fact a bit of a big deal):  So for Barry, when did it all become about Barry?

Now note that I somehow missed the moment when Barack became “Barry.” I picked this up on right wing blogs all too late to get in on the fun and, as regulars here know, I am a tad soft on the President Elect, being rather taken with his First Minus 60 Days, frankly. (It’s the First 100 — when Congress is in session — that scares me.) But I have to admit I loved this little nugget from Ryan, and the accompanying graphic:

On Wednesday, The One pushed back against the unbelieving left who were wondering about “change” being implemented by Clinton retreads. He offered this nugget:

Understand where the vision for change comes from, first and foremost,” he told reporters at his third press conference in as many days. ”It comes from me. That’s my job, is to provide a vision in terms of where we are going, and to make sure, then, that my team is implementing.

To put it simply, from The One comes the Change.

Did I mention my wife was Ron Colemans classmate at Princeton?

Did I mention my wife was Ron Coleman's classmate at Princeton?

This is good work. I don’t happen to think it’s productive in any way besides the inducing of mirth, but that’s a kind of productive, and for sure calling out Mr. Obama on his soaring ego is entirely called for.

Now frankly if I had accomplished what the man has accomplished in the time he’s accomplished it, I’d probably be mightily impressed with my own bad self, too. I know this because I haven’t done that but I still pretty much am.  (Mightily impressed with me, that is.)

The main difference between me and President-Elect Obama in fact is that Ryan hasn’t done any cool graphics about me. So we have the ones about Mr. Obama to enjoy — and I did. And that’s the main thing because, well, you know, it’s my blog and … right. It’s pretty much all about me, too.  But, hey, I’m not the President-Elect.

    “OK, enough about me….Now YOU tell ME what you think of me.” Heh.

    P.S. I’ve always been baffled by the the whole “Barry” vs. “Barack” thing. Obama’s own grandmother called him Barry. So I’m not sure how it is somehow mirth-enducing or belittling when Obama’s detractors call him that. On a similar note, does anyone want to make a bet that he is (or is not) sworn in as “Barack Hussein Obama?” I got a nickel says he is.
