Have you ever seen a President with such thin-skin and such blatant open control of the MSM??

Ozero cannot afford to have anyone from inside the tent calling it as it is.

I sense this guy is getting closer to blow. He looked a bit unsteady yesterday, almost drunk in fact. In responding to his canned questions, he was not dynamic, seemed to be grasping for lines as if they were not right there on the teleprompter. He had a minion call because the last thing he wants is to be actually confronted by anyone from the MSM. I was waiting for this question: If you are serious about reducing the deficit, why have you dismissed your own commission and adopted none of their recommendations? I think had someone asked that in a confrontational manner, he would have gone Mt. St. Helens.

Thin-skinned whiners.

When he was a kid, Obama never heard, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

Thin-skinned is right. Barry is a real piece of work, as are his media friends at MSNBC.

Seems like someone felt a prick over Halperin’s boner, to go dinging MS-DNC’s dong before the cock could even crow once and demanding they be hard on him.

Yep. Halperin said he thought Obama was a dick in his speech the day before.

He followed up with a drooling series of apologies.

You said "skin" and "Obama" in the same sentence therefore you must be a racist. But to answer your question... no.

If Halperin had called Bush a “Dick”, instead of Obama, he’d be getting his own MSNBC TV Show, a fat contract, and the Journalist of the Year award, instead of a suspension....

Here’s a funny limerick on the subject of dicks and weiners:

There once was a pervert named Weiner
Who had a perverted demeanor
Forced from the Hill
For acting like Bill
Now Congress is one weiner leaner.

I believe that all of us who have been Dicks all of our lives (my name is Richard) and proudly lived with our nicknames should sue der Fuehrer and the MSNBC flack for giving all Dicks a bad name. Hell, BO doesn’t even deserve the comparison to a male organ; he serves no useful purpose although he does make a regular habit of pissing on the country and the Constitution. All of us real Dicks don’t appreciate the comparison that ties him to our name or to our favorite body part. Refer to him as a wiener if you’d like.
