Here’s what happened. Mark Halperin offered an opinion he probably shouldn’t have:
Now, we can’t have people on TV calling the President a “dick.” Respect for the office makes that unacceptable. However there are plenty of other things he could have said in the wake of Obama’s presser yesterday.
10) A ridiculous class-warrior whose focus-tested politics of envy (corporate jets!) was passed in his own stimulus bill.
9 ) A narcissistic exaggerator for claiming to be the first President to focus on reducing unnecessary regulations.
8) A knee-jerk socialist who assumes low taxes are a problem that needs solving.
7) A serial straw-man arsonist who routinely frames serious choices as being between something everyone wants and something no one has ever wanted.
6) A hypocrite for attacking hedge funds even as his bundlers are busy rounding up wealthy donors for him to schmooze with around the country.
5) A union-controlled wimp for failing to call out his own NRLB by name instead of vaguely alluding to them.
4) An utterly shameless flip-flopper who has seemingly adopted the same rationale for the war in Libya that he roundly dismissed as insufficient with regard to Iraq a few years ago.
3) A green daydreamer who attacks oil and gas companies so often that you might think Exxon was a founding member of the axis of evil.
2) A weak, unfocused leader who thinks Congress should thank him for dispatching Joe Biden to the negotiations while he’s busy golfing.
1) A condescending paternalist for comparing members of Congress to his pre-teen children.
So, yeah, if I had to sum up Obama’s performance and tone yesterday, Halperin’s choice word would probably come to mind…
But you have to lay it out for people.
