This is What Angry Looks Like?

Does he really act pissed off to you here?  I mean, really?

Full POTUS quote: “I was down there a month ago, before most of these talkin’ heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there, standin’ in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. and I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.”

He doesn't look angry to me.  I've seen angry and that's not it.  There's a smirk tugging at the sides of his mouth.  He's got none of that Bush-with-a-bullhorn indignation.  Bobby Jindal is righteously pissed off when he talks about the BP oil spill.  He's furious.  He's frustrated.  He's oozing indignation from every pore.

But this sap?  Naw.

He wants to know "whose ass to kick."  Very presidential.  You get high leadership marks for that one, you asshat.

What a clod.

Going by what he said he seems to have some low level smoldering resentment at the press corps. I feel that he truly feel that reporters are way out of bounds when they report what they see. He thinks they are low down rats if they do not dutifully repeat what he tells them is happening. The man is not tolerant of oppositional behavior.

What is so sad is how the right criticized G. W. Bush for not getting angry over the treatment he was getting from the liberal media and the left. He chose to rise above the criticism in order to not drag the office of the presidency down and to keep from dividing the nation any further.

This Bozo on the other hand has done nothing to rise above the fray. He more or less provokes division, has done nothing but point fingers at everyone else for his shortcomings, and like a child blames everyone else and defends himself for his incompetence.

I think he's smirking because none of the impacted states voted for him in large numbers - and it's his payback.

Let's see. Obama talks about bringing a gun to a knife fight. He talks about what he will not "tolerate." And he openly says he thinks his job is to decide whose ass to kick.

And here we thought his job was to execute federal law.

I guess he's trying to catch up with his appointee, Ken Salazar, who says his job is to put his boot on somebody's neck.

American freedoms and dignity as seen through the eyes of socialist progressives.

This guy...

GR is right. Barry is rather ... off. All his platitudes about needing people to rise above party politics rings false. The guy put the middle finger in finger pointing.
