[QUOTE]What evidence do you have that Bush was humble? The man said that God chose him, that's pretty high yourself if you ask me... Everything he said and did completely refuted that he was a humble man... And further what evidence do you have Obama is not humble? What has he said or done to prove he is not?

Though Obama's Nobel speech was laudably humble, there are many examples of vanity: Two examples, of many...
George Will on Olympics speech:
"In the Niagara of words spoken and written about the Obamas' trip to Copenhagen, too few have been devoted to the words they spoke there. Their separate speeches to the International Olympic Committee were so dreadful, and in such a characteristic way, that they might be symptomatic of something that has serious implications for American governance.
"Both Obamas gave heartfelt speeches about themselves. ....Obama quickly returned to speaking about . . . himself:
"Nearly one year ago, on a clear November night, people from every corner of the world gathered in the city of Chicago or in front of their televisions to watch the results of the U.S. presidential election. Their interest wasn't about me as an individual. Rather . . ."
It was gallant of the president to say to the Olympic committee that Michelle is "a pretty big selling point for the city." Gallant, but obviously untrue....
Obama video speech on aniversary of fall of berlin wall:
"Even in a two-and-a-half minute speech about an event as epochal as the fall of the Wall, somehow he finds a way to make it about him:
“Few would have foreseen … that a united Germany would be led by a woman from Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent. But human destiny is what human beings make of it,” Obama said.
Skip ahead to 4:30 or so of the Russia Today clip to watch Hillary introduce him as “someone who represents the fall of different kinds of walls.” Even here, history is a handmaiden to The One’s grandeur."
