"I think he has pounded his chest a little too much. He can take pride in it, but he does not need to show it so much."And after the interviewer pointed out that Obama has refrained from acting too triumphant Card replies:
"I thought his statement was subdued, but I think his schedule is not subdued. Personally, I think it is premature to go to Ground Zero, in New York. I think my role model in this would be George H. W. Bush, when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. It was a day to celebrate, but we did not dance on the Wall."Rather than going on with a long explanation calling bullshit on Card's assessment I will just let two pictures taken at public events do the talking. The first one is of George W. Bush following the end of major combat operations in Iraq and the second is of Obama after Osama bin Laden was killed.
President George W. Bush, May 1, 2003
