Obama’s rudeness hits new heights with Scalia, Schumer
By Kyle Smith February 20, 2016 | 3:00pm


Gratuitous. Nasty. Petty. Spiteful. Insulting. Just plain rude. When the rhetoric of a major party’s leading presidential candidate falls to this level, we should be scornful.

So, how is it OK when it isn’t just a presidential candidate but a president who does it?

Donald Trump’s policy of demeaning and snarking his political opponents has been a favorite habit of President Obama for the last eight years. Obama is perhaps the first president who believes that leading the country and playing to the beliefs of the extremists in his own party amount to the same thing, and like Trump fans, Obama fans are motivated in large degree by sheer hatred.

They love to hear their idol channel their rage by bashing people they don’t like.

Obama’s latest, silent insult — leaving a spokesman to explain he had better things to do on a Saturday than attend the funeral of a 30-year justice of the Supreme Court — isn’t surprising when you consider the mean-spirited things he says virtually every time he steps in front of a microphone.

This week, Obama spokesman Josh Earnest bashed Sen. Chuck Schumer, who objected to cuts in counterterrorism funding for New York. Earnest said, in essence, why listen to this fool on anything if he opposed the Iran deal, especially since “most Democrats” were in favor?

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton noted, accurately, that this was pure politics — the president was punishing New York to get back at Schumer.

Obama was doing exactly what he accuses Republican members of Congress of doing, calling them “hostage takers . . . [of] the American people.” Except that his rhetoric was about a debate over tax cuts, not Obama’s actual cutting of money needed to keep the nation’s largest city safe.

Meanwhile, when it comes to actual hostage takers, Obama can’t muster much outrage. At last year’s national prayer breakfast, he barely paused to obliquely refer to the Islamists who had just burned alive a Jordanian pilot so he could single out Christianity for bashing: “Lest we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

If you recall Christian principles, as embodied by a minister named Martin Luther King Jr., being a crucial component of civil rights victories, Obama thinks you’re a dope. If you can’t see how 11th-century atrocities more or less cancel out the ones committed the day before yesterday, you’re not the broad historical thinker Obama thinks he is.

Comparing Islamist fanatics to conservative Americans, and implying that he is more comfortable with the former, is a favorite Obama tactic. Dismissing extremists in Iran, Obama said last August, “In fact, it’s those hard-liners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It’s those hard-liners chanting ‘death to America’ who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus.”

Just two days after promising to scale back his attacks on Republicans at the 2013 Jefferson Dinner, Obama told George Stephanopoulos his opponents wanted to “gut Medicare or gut Social Security or gut Medicaid.” At the end of 2012, at a moment when Republicans thought they were on the verge of closing a budget deal with Obama, he instead staged a press conference and said the Republican policy was “we’re just going to try to . . . shove spending cuts at us, that will hurt seniors, or hurt students, or hurt middle-class families.” In 2012, he advised Latino voters to think, “We’re gonna punish our enemies.” In a 2012 chat with Douglas Brinkley for Rolling Stone, he called Mitt Romney a “bulls—-er.”

All of this has come from a president who is forever bewailing the partisan rancor of a country that, he keeps sadly informing us, has let him down by proving unable to discuss its differences in a civil way.

Obama fanboys often claim that their superhero has been subjected to an unprecedented level of attack and can only take so much. Couldn’t Trump justify his insult-based campaign on that basis? George W. Bush certainly took more than his share of abuse, but to fire back would have struck him as ungentlemanly. He ducked the insults as blithely as he ducked that flying shoe in Iraq.

Besides, usually Obama fans are so desperate to come up with an example of “vitriol” directed against their superhero that they wind up quoting the last four words of a 2009 remark by Rush Limbaugh: “Look, what [Obama] is talking about is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care. I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. I don’t want this to work . . . I hope he fails.”


If you recall Christian principles, as embodied by a minister named Martin Luther King Jr., being a crucial component of civil rights victories, Obama thinks you’re a dope. If you can’t see how 11th-century atrocities more or less cancel out the ones committed the day before yesterday, you’re not the broad historical thinker Obama thinks he is.

It’s those hard-liners chanting ‘death to America’ who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus.”

^^^^^^^ Only took them 7 years to find and truly see what we saw all along.Proving yet again the massive depth of their blindness.
At least now they are getting some of it dead on!! -Tyr

Tyr, Obama is the worst President of my lifetime, IMO, and I've come to expect no better from him.

I know this is not in your meet-things-head-on nature, but may I as a friend suggest you do yourself a favor and try to forget he exists? Yes, forget he exists!

Since there is absolutely nothing I can do to change the fact that he sits in the Oval Office, here's what I do to keep my blood pressure down:

1. I never listen to him speak. Haven't since day 1, btw, and
2. I remind myself that he's a short-timer.

:dance:

When he was first elected, I said to a forum (and myself) "Let him prove himself", even though
I knew full well he had no business being even nominated.

It did not take long for him to prove himself - as biggest Presidential Disaster in my lifetime.

Racist to the bone (having chosen 'black' over 2 other bloodlines) ...diplomatically ignorant...
Militarily inept, ignorant, and cowardly...disregard the Rights of All to favor the minority...
fully ignorant of the Bill of Rights...

The list is endless.

Putting H.Clinton in that seat will just lead to further division and social disaster in this Nation.

Not suggesting/condoning anything, but I am surprised he hasn't been assassinated. Presidents/candidates have been assassinated for less.

Do you mind if I distance myself from your last post? I know you clarified you don't condone it, but that topic makes me nervous nonetheless.

Don't be so PC, Abbey. The only thing that has kept me quiet on the topic is that all you folks get your panties in a bunch over it. Tailfins is right about one thing ... PC controls our lives. To the point that we can't even speak the truth anymore.

If Obama dropped dead this second, don't think I'd miss or mourn the most un-American President we've ever had. He's a cancer, and what do we do with cancer?

You can distance yourself all you want. What's anyone going to do to me? Pull up my internet comments over the past 7 years? I went from giving him a chance, to ambivalence, resignation to his un-American BS, and finally to I hope he dies.

I served this nation, actually from birth, and the ideals that made us great. I'll say what I want. If the internet dork Fed snoops want to come after me they're probably not focusing on the real enemies of this nation. And I consider Obama an enemy of the Constitution and its ideals.

I didn't mean to offend you, Gunny. I'm Sorry.

You have not offended me. I've always been different; especially from civilians. But I'm more than happy with that. I don't think like a civilian and I'm never going to.

Gunny, assassinations in the US have historically been by liberals, commies, etc. THEY support the current CIC-POS. So if you want the POS to die, you're probably going to have to go do it yourself.

I for one think that would be the dumbest thing that anyone who reveres the Constitution could do. The POS would be immortalized as JFK has been. ANYTHING said in opposition to his crappy policies would instantly be met with accusations that you are in support of his killer.

Now if we let said POS live out his full two term stint, giving him every opportunity to fuck up the economy and relations with our allies, we have the opportunity to blast away at his failed policies, and support new policies that will eventually erase all the crap that he has created.

Not to mention that the pendulum effect, as demonstrated by the Carter-to-Reagan phenomenon, which has already eliminated Democrat majorities in most state legislatures, has the potential to destroy the Democrat nominee in this next general election and set us up with sweeping reforms.
