Got two items in the mail today from Barack Obama’s Ministry of Truth, shortly after learning that He had decided, on a whim, to change an explicitly articulated (and politically damaging) proviso of the healthcare law until after the upcoming elections.

Make sure you read the letter from ‘Cathi’, which I’ve pasted in below the ‘Selfie With The President’ email.

Does any of this bother you? The personality cult? The pathological, unceasing narcissism? The utter contempt for the law, and for us?

Well, get over it. As He reminded Himself earlier today, on camera: “That’s the good thing about being president: I can do whatever I want.”

“This could be you”? A tattooed Eloi female, in thrall to a malevolent megalomaniac? I think not.

Anyway, next there’s this:

Malcolm —

If you think you’re never going to win a chance to go backstage to meet President Obama, I need to tell you something:

That’s what I thought, too.

When I got the phone call to tell me my name had been selected, I was floored. It wasn’t long before my husband and I were getting on a free flight to D.C. to meet the President face to face.

I’m here to tell you — if you’re still on the fence, you should go for it right now.

Anyone who adds their name to help with the final push on health care enrollment is automatically eligible to win. Chances are, you were probably planning to help out anyway. This is a pretty amazing bonus.

When you get home, all your friends will want to know: What is it like to meet President Obama?

Here’s the truth — it felt like meeting an old friend.

The President is so warm and genuine — he wanted to know all about me and my husband. Talking with him completely reaffirmed my commitment to keep fighting for what is important. And the photo of the three of us is one of my favorite things to show off.

If I could go again, I’d do it in a heartbeat — heck, I’m going to throw my name in too, just in case.

Add your name to help spread the word on health care enrollment, and you’ll be automatically entered to meet President Obama himself:

Thanks — I’ll be pulling for you!

    Hows come neither Cathi or Barack mails me?

    Oh yeah right.

    I got myself on the Obama campaign’s mailing list back in ’08. I never unsubscribed.

    Apologies to all who think I have fallen into what’s sometimes referred to as Obama Derangement Syndrome. I know I have devoted an unseemly amount of ink to the man.

    That deserves a post of its own, I think. (No irony intended.)

  3. I still feel disgust over his “clinging to their guns and religion” comment during his first campaign for President, when referring to those backwoods Pennsylvanians and I haven’t lived in PA since I was 18 years old. Not sure what that says about me, but in my mind I’ll always be a simple country girl from the Poconos. Everything about this President runs counter to my value system. The humility gene seems to be completely absent. He knows he can do anything he wants, after all, he defeated the most powerful political machine to become President and who will gainsay him now, the Little Johns (John Boehner or a court run by John Roberts)??? Co-equal branches of government in our tripartite system sounds rather old-fashioned and quaint these days

  4. “Not sure what that says about me, …”

    It says you are a decent human being, unlike the repulsive subject of this post.
