Critics are harping that Barack Obama is running a campaign that in its coarseness, smallness, and pettiness [i] marks a new low in American politics. Why are they so outraged? He has behaved this way ever since he moved into the Oval Office.
Many people have criticized Barack Obama for his failures as president. His economic record is pathetic:
He can also be faulted for making a mockery of the Constitution and our system of checks and balances:

” trillions of dollars in new debt;
anemic growth juiced up only by massive deficit spending, endless printing of money;
zero interest rates that have proven so harmful to senior savers;
regulations that are smothering businesses;
a stimulus bill that reward Democratic special interest groups with taxpayer dollars and money borrowed from the Chinese;
ObamaCare, which is choking off job growth; a shriveling of future opportunities for our youth;
a foreign policy that cravenly shrivels before our adversaries but insults, damages, and bullies our allies and friends “
Americans will vote their pocketbooks.
'Why are they so outraged? He has behaved this way ever since he moved into the Oval Office.'Exactly, why so shocked? What were Barry's first words to the Republicans in Congress again??? Oh yeah: "I Won".
~~~ congressional leaders gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the ~ economic stimulus plan. Obama showed that hes not averse to using a jab. Challenged by one Republican senator over the contents of the package, the new president replied: I won.And then, with the GM Bailout what was the first thing he did. Obama personally FIRED the CEO of GM and appointed his own guy. Who just happened to know nothing about the Auto Industry. To boot Barry decides to give 51% of GM stock to the UAW -- which they had no right or claim to. Annnnnd decide that the UAW would be made whole on money 'owed' and that Bond Holders and others who had a legal claim on GM assets would get ZERO!!
He should have been IMPEACHED just for THAT! But when Congress did nothing Obama knew he could push them anywhere, along with any law or the constitution. Hell, Obama didn't even have to go through any phony legal motions like Hitler did.
Obama declared himself Der Führer on day one.
(and IMHO he ain't gonna go quietly.)
