Skip to comments.Obama the Unseemly: A more aggressive press corps might have motivated him to preserve his dignity

There's been a lot of talk of late about how "cool" Barack Obama supposedly is. But people are starting to notice the man has no class.
"Blue collar Democratic voters, stuck taking depressing 'staycations' because they can't afford gas and hotels, are resentful of the first family's 17 lavish vacations around the world and don't want their tax dollars paying for the Obamas' holidays, according to a new analysis of swing voters," reports the Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard.
A group of Republican pollsters conducted focus groups of swing-state swing voters, mostly Democrats and independents, and John McLaughlin "handled blue collar and Catholic voters" in Pittsburgh and Cleveland. He found that they tend to think Mitt Romney is "too rich," but "there is a start of resentment of the government." In Bedard's words, "voters were also lumping in the president's vacation spending in with the General Services Administration's Las Vegas scandal and federal spending for those who aren't looking for work."
Obama is also notorious for his golf outings. Blogress Ann Althouse, another swing voter (she has admitted supporting Obama in 2008), notes that George W. Bush was "savaged" for going golfing "when Americans were fighting and dying." Michael Moore made hay of it in his 2004 agitprop film "Fahrenheit 9/11," notwithstanding that Bush had given up golf in 2003 on the ground that it was unseemly: "I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong message." Althouse opens her post with a story about the latest casualties in Afghanistan...

Starting to notice?
He never had class.
Class is not something you can buy.
You get class from your parents, the way they trained you taught you etiquette, taught you how gentlemen and ladies acted and insisted you act in this manner.
It doesn’t take rich’s to have class, it is a part of your life your speech, your actions
How could Obama have class, coming fom a broken family of drunks, communists, whoand hanging around with others of the same ilk.Much of it is attitude and respect for others.
Obama has a bad attitude and no respect for anything./
How about Flushing toilet jokes at dinner?
"President Obamas presentation started with a little sketch that poked fun at his recent hot mic episode with Russias Dmitry Medvedev by having the audience believe that we were listening to the leader of the free world complaining about having to be at this dinner, while sitting on a toilet. That portion ended with a flush and Obama craving a cigarette." http://www.theblaze.com/stories/president-obama-opened-correspondents-dinner-with-a-toilet-flush-really/
Or how about Dog Poop Jokes:
"Answering questions Friday from youngsters at an elementary school, Obama described going for nighttime walks with first dog Bo on the White House South Lawn. He says thats fun. But, Obama says, Sometimes I have to scoop up his poop, because I dont want to just leave it in the lawn!
The response from the kids: Eeeewww! http://wonkette.com/432850/children-disgusted-by-president-obamas-poop-jokes

Our Marxist President with his radical agenda foreign to our heritage has his finger on the nuclear trigger. His paternity and citizenship are suspect. He takes great pains to hide his background from us. He was educated by Muslims, Communists, and at Harvard. He emerged into the public eye from the cesspool of Chicago politics. As a community organizer, he got folks on the dole and squandered taxpayer money in a failed attempt to subvert public schools to an ideological agenda. He attended a Chicago church whose hate-America Pastor is a foul-mouthed servant of Satan. He is close friends with known terrorists. He admires and bows before oil potentates and tin-pot dictators. (We have pictures.) He treats Americas traditional allies with contempt. He hates Jews, Israel, America, and Whitey. He lies so easily and so often it is troubling. Based on his past & current associations, Barack
Obama would never even qualify for a DOD Security Clearance; now he is Commander in Chief and fecklessly taking steps to disarm us in the sight of our enemies. Does that make you feel safe at night? Fellow Patriots, Barack Obama is a danger to your Life, Liberty, and Property and a disgrace to American ideals! Barack Obama deserves only our scorn and contempt, certainly not our vote. We can’t be rid of this dork fast enough.
You spelled dork wrong, see now you’ve got me doing it.
Wow! Did he really say that? What an idiot.
Not only is he crude and dumb, however, but he is without a doubt the most egocentric individual ever to wind up in the WH.
All politicians have major egos, or they wouldn’t be politicians, but Obama thinks everything in the universe, no matter how great or how trivial, is about him.
I hope he finds out the hard way that it’s not.
But people are starting to notice the man has no class.
I suppose that is coming from a culture that demonstrates less and LESS class...
Moochelle - bad choice of dress. Behind the flowers, she looks naked.
Stupid headline; stupid story.
To "preserve" dignity, it must first exist.
I visualize the "Jeffersons," of TV fame as suddenly finding themselves in the White House, and looting the treasury at will.
Trailer trash comes in all colors.
How incredibly undignified for the president to be telling this to school children!
Can anyone remember when there was respect for office and something called decorum??
The parallels between President Comancho and 0baMao are more obvious every day.
Gross! As if I needed more evidence of his boorishness....
Well, I wish that the pubbies would lay off the Pres during this one event. It can be pretty funny (we really need a break from the bad news), and it will be our guy up at the podium soon. And, there is more than enough material to criticize already.
A demon has no dignity..
Boy, I sure do!
