Insert Ozymandias joke here.  Look upon his works, ye mighty, and despair indeed.

One is tempted to make a comparison to the Tower of Babel………….

Certainly there’s a surfeit of pride and lack of hubris on the part of Teh One………..

So any support he had from the right has eroded?

When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain.

Looks as attractive as the new statue of Chairman Mao on the Capitol Mall.

His face looks a little like that of Batman’s “the Joker.”

“A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention.”

The Dems just cannot see what this cult of personality for the Southside Messiah looks like to normal people.

If Obama is accepting and allowing this sort of thing to be done in his name than his megalomania is a lot more serious than I originally had given him credit for. This does not bode well for the country, the election and our form of government.

Where is his sense of humility?

[…] Hattip to Christopher Johnson at Midwest Conservative Journal, both for the story and the Ozymandias… […]

“Where is his sense of humility?”

He has none, and he’s never learned to at least *pretend* to have it (the way most politicians do). That’s because he’s the ultimate affirmative action hire – he’s spent all his adult life being petted and praised just for showing up.

BTW that is one ugly sand sculpture. A commenter on another thread (can’t remember which, or I would credit him) said it makes Barry look like Al Jolson.

And Chris’ header prompts another question: What kind of name is “Bysshe?”

I think this must appeal to some sub-culture of America, but to me it looks ridiculous.

President Obama’s presidency has been one disastrous decision after another. This seems just another part of that narrative.

OK, call me crazy, but when I read the article, this came to mind.

I understand Cecilia Gimenez is available for any restoration work that may need to be done:

They spent campaign cash on a large ugly sand sculpture of Obama? This typifies the entire first term: wasteful and of fleeting value, if any.

Anne b. Asked “What kind of name is “Bysshe?” Maybe it’s a derivative of Reince Priebus?

Knock off the Reince Priebus smack, John. My first car was a Reince Priebus and I loved that thing.

This is not official merchandise, to be fair, but Dave Weigel from Slate spotted this for sale in Charlotte: John 3:16 superimposed on the photocopy of Obama’s birth certificate.

No joke about the Book of Daniel, the statue & 3 young men in the furnace??? Get with it.

“My first car was a Reince Priebus”

Nice to know I’m not the only one who thinks his name sounds more like a hybrid vehicle model… undoubtedly much more reliable than the Chevy Volt.

Ha ha, I had to dig a bit but now I see the absurdity of the Reince Priebus comments.

Look upon his works, ye mighty, and try not to giggle

mene, mene, tekel, parsin, also comes to mind.
