President "Me"

Iaian Martin of the Daily Telegraph has noticed that Obama "really does go on a bit".

And about himself a bit, as well. But it's mostly the going on. And on.

Even Europe is starting to figure him out.

Is there a computer which churns this stuff out for him? (ed. heh! probably!)

"For over a thousand years, Prague has set itself apart from any other city in any other place. You have known war and peace. You have seen empires rise and fall. You have led revolutions in the arts and science, in politics and poetry. Through it all, the people of Prague have insisted on pursuing their own path, and defining their own destiny. And this city - this Golden City which is both ancient and youthful - stands as a living monument to your unconquerable spirit."

Empires rising and falling, destinies being defined and a Golden City standing as a monument to unconquerable spirit... goodness, what a ham. When he really gets going he's worse than Tony Blair.

But Obama was only warming up. "When I was born," (Everything usually leads back to him, you'll notice)... "the world was divided, and our nations were faced with very different circumstances. Few people would have predicted that someone like me would one day become an American President." (Him again)...

And again... words do mean something ... don't they? Only what excactly did he say in that first paragraph above? I mean, that meant anything of substance? That Prague has been around a long time? Woah! Earth shaking! That it's old and young? Is it Silver as well as Gold? The man is so .... deep.

Update: Oh my. This ties in with the last two posts rather well. (HT: Morgan) - "What if Obama Directed 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'?"
