He Doesn't Know His Own Strength

The Obama administration is like the huge bodybuilder who is nonetheless convinced that he is small.

The other day, Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s closest advisors, told CNN’s Campbell Brown, “It is our job to speak truth to power.”

No, Ms. Jarrett, it is the little people’s job to “speak truth to power.” Truth is all the little people have. It is your job, as occupants of the White House, to project power. You have had close to a year in the White House, and apparently you haven’t figured this out.

(If) and when you do “figure it out,” you might want to tell your boss. He is the one standing in the mirror wondering why his arms are so skinny.

I don't think it strange that truth (generally) is muddled at the level of those mortal 'powers that be', let alone a strongman's thoughts of himself looking in the mirror, lacking proper self-esteem and/or "...after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like." The people suffer unnecessarily. Thanks again! Tico
