Hubris

My brother in law, BG, sent me this this e-mail. Says quite a bit about the Narcissist Cooncracker in Charge.



WHAT A DIFFERENCE








 George W. Bush speech after capture of Saddam Hussein:The success of yesterday's mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq .
The operation was based on the superb work 
of intelligence analysts who found the
Dictator's' footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by
A brave fighting force. Our 
servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many
Dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and
Freedom to the Iraqi people. 
Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of theNation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate 'them.





Barack Hussein Obama speech, Sunday, May 1, 2011: And so shortly after taking office,Idirected Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the Killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against Al Qaeda, even as continued Our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network.
Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by myintelligence community, was briefed on A possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread To ground. met repeatedly with mynational security team as we developed more information About the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, Idetermined thathad enough intelligence to take action, and Authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at mydirection, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Hubris ( /ˈhjuːbrɪs/), also hybris, means extreme haughtiness, pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.

If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to catch the National Geographic channel's 9/11 interview with Bush. No matter your politics, what is shown is a man of integrity, class, honor and decency - the likes of which is what is so desperately missing in the White House today.

"integrity, class, honor and decency"

It's not just missing in the White House, it's missing in congress as well.
