President Thin-Skinned, Barack Hussein Obama, showed just how much of a little man he is today at the White House, in reacting to his cave-in on extending the Bush tax rates (Michelle Malkin).
“It’s tempting not to negotiate with hostage takers, unless the hostage gets harmed…the hostage was the American people.”
It wasn't enough that he called the Republican's "hostage takers," but the Asshole-in-Chief went further; calling tax cuts "for the rich" the GOP's "Holy Grail" and possible Speaker of the House John Boehner a "bomb thrower."
I'm mean really! Obama showed himself today to be anything but a statesman. He's petty, vindictive, thin-skinned and cannot take any criticism. Look at how he treats FOX News or other members of the press who dare to confront him and his regime.
To call the Republicans "hostage takers" was not just callous, it was stupid. By doing so, this jerk told any terrorist or hostile group that wishes the United States harm that he can meet their demands.
Unfortunately, that's the attitude of liberal Democrats, who demonize conservatives as "terrorists" or "hostage takers" while they refuse to acknowledge the Islamofascism that attacked America on 9/11 and still threatens us today.
Still, the vote on approving the tax rate extension hasn't occurred yet. Part of me wonders if Pelosi and Reid may gather enough votes to kill it, playing "good cop, bad cop" for "The Annointed One."
Nice Deb notes that Obama called extending the current tax rates "irresponsible" two months ago. I guess this is his "Read My Lips" moment. Unlike Bush 41 (or Harry Truman for that matter), Obama showed today he cannot take the heat from his liberal base, or being directed in the right direction by conservatives.
So much for being "post-partisan."
