"L'hubris, c'est moi"

In this post, I link to an article that discusses some of the numerous recent examples of King Obama's narcissistic personality.  Although it's nice to see a liberal journalist point this out, I do think the tone of the article suggests that this is a new phenomena with Obama.  On that, I strongly disagree: I suggest that his hubris and narcissism have been on display at least since he was a senator.   In any event, here's a representative slice from the article (HT: Instapundit):
Hubris in a leader is an obnoxious thing, leading to imperiousness in governing. And it’s also a dangerous thing for a second-term president, often spelling trouble.  Unfortunately, this president’s acts of high handedness and self-absorption have been accumulating in the past several months at a blistering pace.
It's an interesting article and worth the time.
