Actual modest and patriotic Obama quote:
"It has become increasingly clear in my travel, the campaign -- that the crowds, the enthusiasm, 200,000 people in Berlin, is not about me at all. It's about America. I have just become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions"
How Karl Rove and the GOP machine made it spin-ready before spoon feeding it to Sean Hannity and pals, as they seek to portray a young black man brought up by a mother on food stamps as "elitist" and "arrogant", a possible Antichrist:
"I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions"

Ah, the brilliance of the GOP smear machine. Don't let truth get in the way of scoring points. Taking Americans for suckers, again and again
