He’s trying to compensate for his shortcomings.
Check it out:

Did you happen to see the size of those flags behind Obama at the National Security Agency speech? Those flags are getting bigger and bigger and bigger every speech he makes. And, you know, that’s what dictators do. As our liberties and our freedoms shrink, the symbols get bigger and bigger and bigger. It happens all over the Third World. You can see it.

The NSA speech that Obama gave today, I don’t know if it’s a favorite BS line, but it has to rank at the top. Obama, in addressing whatever he was saying — by the way, it was the Limbaugh Theorem on display. He showed up today (paraphrasing), “I don’t know what they’re doing over there, but I’m gonna get to the bottom of it, and I’m gonna make sure that we don’t spy on you as much. I’m not sure what they’ve been doing, but I’m going to get to the bottom of it.” It was the Limbaugh Theorem on display, and he said, “Throughout this evolution,” in surveillance technology, “we benefited from both our Constitution and traditions of limited government.”

Now, the reason there are jokefests about Obama being a dictator is because he’s ignoring the Constitution, but yet here he is talking about his reverence for it. And then, after speaking of his reverence for the Constitution, then he lauds our traditions of limited government, which he’s also blowing to smithereens. It’s the same thing that I mentioned yesterday. Obama showing up and talking about the tradition in America, that, “if you work hard, you can make it in America. That’s always been the case and that’s what we continue to fight for today,” which is absolute bunk. It’s becoming getting harder and harder and harder to work hard in America and have it pay off, precisely because of what he’s doing to the location of that hard work, i.e., the private sector.

In fact, I have to tell you, ladies and gentlemen, I, El Rushbo, in the top 10 most influential Americans in Forbes magazine, I’m losing track. I’m trying to keep track, but I think I’m losing ground here. Which scandal is Obama trying to distract us from now with this speech today on the NSA? ‘Cause you know he doesn’t think this is any big deal. This is just an opportunity. You know, a lot of young Millennials are really worried about this and in the high-tech world this is what really irritates them about Obama. The rest of the stuff they don’t care. But this… These young tech bloggers that I read, they just can’t believe that their guy would do this. Bush, yeah. And Republicans, yeah. But they just can’t believe that Obama would be doing this and they’re really agitated by it.

Now, for me, it is clear that Obama is trying to use this as a means of changing the news narrative and distract us from all of the scandals, and it’s keeping track of the scandals that’s becoming a bit of a challenge. For example, is it the latest Benghazi information he wants us to forget? Is it the abysmal Obamacare numbers? And, man, is that continuing to worsen. They do not know how many people have actually paid. They haven’t slightest idea. They don’t even know the number of people that have enrolled. They can’t tell you that. The only thing that we apparently know with any kind of certainty is that four out of every five enrollees are getting subsidies.
