Posted on 12/07/2010 5:08:43 PM PST by ColdOne
Weve learned today that what really gets under his skin and makes him boil is criticism, and especially criticism from progressives. Only a man of the left could care so much about attacks from the left wing. Only a president who is extremely thin-skinned would let criticism bother him so much that hed relative to his usual affect erupt in anger in public about it. Only someone who desperately hates the position hes in now, having to try to accommodate political realities in a center-right country and kiss his former messiahship goodbye, would show such peevishness. We got a good look behind the curtain for a moment this afternoon, and it wasnt pretty.

There’s no info at the link that I see that explains what it is he did. Maybe I missed it or maybe it’s just crappy reporting. Can you summarize?
'The best part of the whole rant was when he essentially called his own base "sanctimonious." Pretty sure avoiding that is in Chapter One of "The Compleat Idiot's Guide to Electoral Politics." '
It’s all about the holy grail.
Typical liberal, he still does not get us. Like all liberals, they have no conservative friends and cannot understand or care what we think.
Rich Lowry is commenting on Obama’s press conference today.
This peevish weakling is what you get when you coddle someone because he is “disadvantaged”. All the special favors done for him caused this lack of strength of character. Too bad the lapdogs in the Democrat-run media didn’t check this man out before the clueless voters stuck the USA with The Worst President Ever.
I missed it, what did he do?
I’ve been in the emergency room of the veterinary hospital for about 6 hours today.
the quote in my tagline is still accurate
Hope all is ok.
I turned him to mute, I’m sorry. I cannot listen to him.
He had a press conference and got upset. He tried to explain why he made the tax deal with the Republicans. I hope all is well now for you.
>> Ive been in the emergency room of the veterinary hospital for about 6 hours today.
Trust me, you can get better insurance if you shop around a little. Ours not all THAT gold plated, but as far as I know they still allow us to use the *people* ER.
But seriously, I hope your sick pet is better.
"Erupt into anger?"
I didn't see it. What did he say or do?
Yeah but what specifically did Obama say? I didn’t see anything there about his comments other than to say he was snippy.
Medical care for pets has become a dicey business in LA in recent years.
Little chihuahua, Fidel, has a collapsed trachea. $1,100 today, $2,125.60 over two days. I’ve spent more on his healthcare over his 8 years than in my whole life for me!
They are keeping him in an oxygen chamber tonight ... and sedated.
The best I can tell he called Republicans hostage takers, and is obviously upset that they don't appreciate his brilliance and infallibility.
Awww poor pup.
He also called the Republicans hostage takers.
Thank you so much.
And I have to keep Obama muted as well. :)
Oh, thank you.
A little chihuahua yelp for you. :)
He started talking, sounded like a third grader who was a poor reader (and petulant to boot) and I hit mute. I just cannot listen to him. The whistling “s” sound really bugs me too.
Give Fidel a hug. Hate when they are sick. At the moment all of my doggies are young, but it cycles, and then we go thru that again. Wish they all lived longer. Maybe I should get parrots.
>> Little chihuahua, Fidel, has a collapsed trachea. $1,100 today, $2,125.60 over two days.
Ouch. In every way.
Paws up to you!
IMHO it was the most jaw-dropping Presidential press conference I can ever remember.
Yeah, I thought it would be about $500 a day. But, no, $1,000 a day with the oxygen chamber. He is a little white chihuahua. They brought him out with an arm band and tubes running from him.
I said, “Keep him”.
It is only money.
WOW, I’ll look for it on You Tube!
I didn’t see him attacking his base in that video as suggested but he’s right. He wasn’t going to win in the Senate so rolling over now is the smart thing to do but probably not the reason you’re thinking. Some Republican Senators had put any discussion of any other legislation on hold until this was passed. Now that the Bush tax cuts are off the table the Dems will be able to move forward with their lameduck agenda.
Obama is simply not the master of the English language that they claim.
So he could not pronounce “superfluous”. He blamed it on his lip. But he could still speak ... just not that word that he did not know how to pronounce.
He is a total fake!
Well, and his reading is not fluid. He reads like my students who could read words but didn’t really understand what they were reading.
I wonder if history will record that this man is a fake. Clearly some of us see it.
Is that a different video than the one at your link? I didn’t hear that.
Hoping everything is okay with your pet.
Thank you. A chihuahua paws up for you!
I don’t know. It will be interesting, and we may not live long enough to see. I will be curious how our grandchildren see all of this.
cspan may play it. Clearly our POTUS has “issues”
It’s not reporting, it was a brief bit of “as it happened” commentary at the time Obama gave a press conference today, in which he variously referred to Republicans as “hostage takers,” “bomb throwers,” and I forget what else. He also excoriated those on the left who dared criticize him. It was, as Lowry notes, a rather ugly performance.
Chihuahua! Our kind of dog (usually mixed with terrier, though). : )
I miss him.
It’s very hard to leave a pet at an animal hospital. It will probably be less stressful for the patient to not have to deal with car rides though, and you will hopefully get some sleep.
Prayers will be sent.
Was this an injury or something mechanical, so to speak?
It is genetic.
A collapsed trachea is common in little dogs, chihuahuas, yorkies, pomeranians, etc.
But, if it cannot be stabilized, then they suggest putting the dog down. However, there is a new operation wherein a mesh framework is installed around the trachea to keep it open. It’s pricey and the results are middling.
I just hope we do not get to that point.
Thanks for your support. :)
Wow, I had never heard of that - good luck, from somebody who’s had to get back surgery for the G Shep this year!
Sorry to hear about your puppy. If you want to hear what was said, turn Rush on now. He will be replaying that shortly.
Thank you for your thoughts.
One downside of working during the day, is that I have never heard Rush Limbaugh. No reception.
