Starting to Believe His Own Hype?

This comment, by itself, is reason enough not to vote for Sen. Obama:
"I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."
Got Humility?

The other side of the story?

Peter Kirsanow writes at The Corner:
Simple assignment for the press corps: ask the senator to name three specific traditions to which America will return upon his election and why his election will prompt their return. No teleprompters allowed.
And follows up with:
Pop quiz for the press corps. Which of the following phrases is not attributable to Sen. Obama?:

—"People of the world — this is our moment."

—"We are the change we've been waiting for."

—"I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."

—"I am the way and the truth and the life."

—"I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment... when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."

—"I am a ..Citizen of the World."

—"Vero Possemus."

And yet the late night jokesters still can't find anything funny to say about this guy.
Imagine for one second that a Republican had said that.

Does he simply not know that other people might be listening in? Not only does this comment display an utter lack of humility, it also demonstrates that the guy is kind of stupid.

I thought he was a candidate of change?

He's a megalomaniac.

Sort of the anti-Reagan. Reagan had a keen mind as shown by the letters and speeches he penned himself long before he became President. However, he deliberately helped foster the idea that he was, in the immortal phrase of the clueless Clark Clifford, an "amiable dunce". Truly smart people realize the advantage to having opponents constantly underestimate them, and do not mind giving the impression that they are far less intelligent than they actually are. People who are far less intelligent than they think they are bask blithely in unwarranted adulation until they prove by their actions that the adulation was mistaken and harmful to them in the long run.

I want him to tell us what traditions our country has strayed from and what he as president can/would do to restore those traditions.
