Obama the Bully

I'd feel sorrier for the press in the end if their love affair with Barack Obama had they not spent the last two years licking his boots and calling all critics "racists."

But it is good to see the MSM finally coming to the conclusion the rest of us came to a long time ago: Barack Obama is a bully who can't govern and is a thin-skinned (that's not racist), pouty-faced egoist who can't act statesmanlike to save his life.

Can you remember any other modern President, wagging a finger from on high, so directly and bitterly criticizing a new law passed by any state?

This is hubris at best and ignorance of the Constitution at worst. The U.S. was founded in part on the precept of states’ rights as an important counterweight to a rapacious federal government. Thus a President must step softly here, questioning gently but avoiding rancor and browbeating.

The law in question is Arizona's new immigration law, designed to deal with a state issue that the feds refuse to. God knows, expecting everybody to carry ID with them--like a driver's license--is clearly racist, right? Especially when you have to show it to check into a hotel, buy Sudafed, use your credit card, get money from your bank account, etc., etc.

President Obama is a big whiny baby and his immature attitude towards the presidency is rankling more than just Republicans these days.
Hmm, now that I think about it, nor can I recall any other modern President who has spent so much effort lambasting his immediate predecessor. Reagan didn’t do it to Carter. Clinton didn’t do it to the first George Bush.

And the worst part is, we’re barely calling out Obama the Bully on this behavior at all. We are becoming entirely too accustomed to it, failing to see it for what it really is: a striking lack of civility, and an overflow of divisiveness, from a President who had promised to give us precisely the opposite.

I'm waiting for Democrats to call the press racists.
