I've yet to come across anyone, even in the left-leaning press, who is backing the President and Gates and their ludicrous assertions. The comments sections across the board demonstrate the President has made a catastrophic error.
Left-leaning Atlantic is reporting that the Republicans have sent a press release to the eleven Massachusetts Democrats asking if they're willing to stand by the President's comments and conduct.
Does [Rep. X] believe President Obama's comments were becoming of someone who holds the highest office in the land?" said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. "The president was slow to point out any wrongdoing in the wake of the Iranian election and his administration was quick to force through a failed stimulus plan even though they 'misread' the economy. This is certainly a questionable rush to judgment coming from a president who hasn't exactly been quick to call out unconscionable behavior by a merciless foreign dictator or gotten his facts straight before advocating a trillion-dollar mistake to address our ailing economy. Is it really presidential for him to cast harsh judgment of a law enforcement official without all the facts? These questions warrant an answer from Michael Capuano."
[Rep. X] has acted quickly and without foresight as he pushes President Obama's job-killing agenda. Now that the President has started hurling insults from the White House at local law enforcement officers, will his loyal follower continue to play along?
When you can't get Margery Egan on board your "I'm a victim" shtick, you're toast.
I have no idea what really happened to Gates last week. But his scorched-earth reaction yesterday made this heavy-hitter Harvard superstar - he of PBS, The New Yorker and the heights of power academia - seem hysterical and ridiculous, too..
Plus, exploitative, insufferable, self-absorbed and small
