President Obama may cultivate an image as the unflappable Mr. Cool, but he can get hot under the collar too, according to a new book.
In "The Promise: President Obama, Year One," by Newsweek senior editor Jonathan Alter, the author recounts a series of private blow-ups - including a particularly fiery one involving the nation's top military brass.
"A presidential dressing down unlike any in the United States in more than half a century," is how Alter describes the October 2009 eruption.
But it's often the flashes of anger, not amour, that shine through Alter's tome, including:
"No! No! You're making that up!" he shouted at aide David Axelrod, grabbing him by the shirt. "That can't be right."

The idiot at Newsweak is making this up ... an unflappable narcissist Wee Wee like me doesn't have a temper ... that can't be right!
Anyone remotely paying attention to this man can see he has a temper and becomes unglued easily.
Alter is just trying to be credited with ‘revealing’ this trait.

Can’t ya see?
Zero is a low life from Kenya, indonesia, and at the end Frank Davis and his bisexual marijuana and cocaine fueled Communist recruitment parties for 8 long years which he joined and liked.
Mr. President “are you high?”
Seemed giggly high to me
That’s just before he screams at OUR generals.
Alter is an Obama butt-boy. You can bet this book will be flattering and adoring.
Even the mention of “tea party” sends him into a tizzy. Unflappable my eye.
Democrats will defend him by citing the loss of temper by Jesus at the temple.
He’s a god to his people.
This is a very bitter and dangerous man. He is driven by inner demons that he has no desire to exorcise. And he will not be satisfied until he has brutally punished those he thinks are responsible for his own deep-seated self-loathing: white people. You can’t grow hating your white blood — in his case, half of his very being — without becoming seriously demented.
More commonly refered to as a hissy fit.
So who is doing the Hitler rant parody using zer0’s public words?
“becomes unglued easily.
This is something I too have inferred from his demeanor and often very cutting language: there is an ANGRY man beneath the surface. What astonishes me is that it’s take this long for the MSM to acknowledge and report on this.
Alter’s book may unleash a flood of leaks by aggrieved individuals who recognize the bloom is off the rose: “many of the White House reporters who cover Obama greatly resent the way they are treated by the Obama administration.” http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/tobyharnden/100034349/white-house-press-corps-turns-on-barack-obama/
Hell hath no fury like a media scorned...(and just in time for the upcoming elections: yee haaaaaaah!).

Obama = snippy. An insecure guy his entire life, battling the world around him.
The left will be orgasmic at the thought of O dressing down one of our military heroes.
Color me surprised....
Some of us have been point to this as his acheles heal...you just got to keep getting to him and eventually he will unravel in one not to be missed super nova. Of course, just like with any other nuke, the fallout will be dangerous but in his case it will be for the better good. Anything that gets this asshat out of the Oval office will be for the best regardless of the short term harm he will cause as he becomes the incredible shrinking man. Rush is in his head but he is not a sufficent force to unglue him. The Tea Party more so especially if they are able to remove his strangle hold on the political process of this country.
Of course, the absent media could really do it...they managed to devolve the Nixon Presidency in about two years of constant lying an probing. It has to be played on TV or the iron heads in this country will be in the dark just like today.
