After almost two years of calmly apologizing for American exceptionalism, quietly extending rights to those who have killed thousands of American citizens (and those who want to do the same) and steadily pressing a socialist agenda that defies both American majority opinion and American precedent; President Barack Obama is losing his cool.
Foreign attackers didn't phase him and dissent over domestic issues didn't seem to register with him Not even the traditional opponent of a sitting president, the White House Press Corps, has been able to get under his skin. Granted he won't give them the opportunity, reducing their access to shouting out questions he refuses to answer as he strolls by like the emperor in his new clothes. But now, his obvious frustration in the face of his own incompetence has revealed that "No Drama Obama" is prone to immature outbursts when faced with difficult situations.

He relied on the “dumbed down” sector of America. Free iPods and DMB concert tickets (I will never forgive Dave). He knew “young” America could be bought.
And what did the skinny little bast.. uh, Kenyan think he was going/able to do?
“That stance he take just freaks me out every time I see it.”
With very good reason...the man is demented.
In State Legislature Altercation, Obama Had To Be Physically Restrained.

Finally, a new and intriguing anecdote from David Mendells biography of the Illinois senator, Obama: From Promise To Power, on page 125-126:
Obama, to be sure, had allies in the black caucus, but he had his share of critics as well. His chief antagonists were Rickey Hendon, who represented a district on the citys West Side, and Donne Trotter, ho would run against Obama for Congress.
Hendon and other African-American lawmakers from the West Side often found themselves at odds with their South Side brethren, but the rift between Hendon and Obama was particularly acute. Hendon and Trotter would just give Barack hell, said Senator Kimberly Lightford, an Obama ally in the black caucus. Hendon, nicknamed Hollywood, because he once aspired to produce films, was a flamboyant personality in Springfield, known for his smart-aleck humor and occasionally inappropriate public manner. In one legislative session, the two nemses nearly came to physical blows when Obama, apparently inadvertently, voted against a bill that included funding for a project that assisted Hendons district.
Years later, details of the incident remain in the eye of the beholder. Obama supporters say that Obama had stepped away from his seat and asked someone else to vote for him, not an uncommon practice considering the thousands of votes each session. His proxy, however, accidentally voted against his wishes. When Obama asked that the record reflect that he voted the wrong way, Hendon publicly accused Obama of duplicity. Hendon has never been shy about holding back his feelings, and he had a special way of penetrating Obamas usually smooth exterior. Soon, the two men were shouting at each other on the senate floor. They took their disagreement into a nearby room, and a witness said that Obama had to be physically restrained. Neither man cares to discuss the incident today, but Hendon remains unconvinced of Obamas explanation that his vote was accidental. Individuals close to the situation say Hendon still believes Obama voted against his project to pacify North Side fiscal conservatives who were leery of some West Side projects. For his part, the rarely reticent Hendon wont discuss the altercation, except to confirm that it occurred. I have been advised to leave Barack alone and that is what I am going to do, Hendon said. I am going to let things stay in the past. It happened. Thats all I can say. It happened.
The Narcissist Rageth
Oh yes...his wonderful attitude during the big health care discussions. He never had any intention of accomplishing anything that day. He humored the Republicans. It’s like he’s disgusted just being in the same room with them.
That’s it. Herndon. Thank you. And then Herndon was curiously silent after that, as I recall. Faded from sight.
Wait till Obama really goes postal. Up till now his girlfriend Rosy Scenario has been at his side. but what happens when unemployment is stuck at 10+ permanently, when the wheels start coming off Obamacare, when another war starts, when his conies get booted from office? I don’t think it will be pretty.
If the media ever starts to question him he will explode because he can’t take criticism.
“Il Duce! Dat’s me!”
“Its like hes disgusted just being in the same room with them.”
He is. Wonder how he would do in this room?
Think Hitler in the bunker.
“During one of those sessions in the Oval Office the first week after the spill, a president who rarely vents his frustration cut his aides short, according to one who was there. “Plug the damn hole,” Obama told them.”
He forgot who he was talking to...daydreaming about Larry Sinclair...
With the mustache cropped JUST A LITTLE it is eerie...
Ha! He’d better take some blood pressure medicine before he pays us a visit here!
