Oh my: House Dem drops F-bomb on Obama at caucus meeting on tax cuts

posted at 5:57 pm on December 9, 2010 by Allahpundit

I join with Ace in condemning this shocking example of extremist hatemongering incivility.

Seriously, though, look at it this way: If we had a parliamentary system, The One would be packing his bags by now.

The frustration with President Barack Obama over his tax cut compromise was palpable and even profane at Thursday’s House Democratic Caucus meeting.

One unidentified lawmaker went so far as to mutter “f— the president” while Rep. Shelley Berkley was defending the package the president negotiated with Republicans. Berkley confirmed the incident, although she declined to name the specific lawmaker…

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) was also overheard saying that “we can’t trust him” not to cave to Republicans and extend the tax cuts again in two years, according to a Democratic source.

Note to GOP oppo researchers: Kindly flag that last paragraph for use later on, because we all know that once Campaign 2012 starts rolling and the left decides that the GOP nominee is The New Hitler, they’ll clamor to insist that Obama really, truly, absolutely can be trusted to fight for tax hikes on the rich come 2013. In the meantime, since Drudge is fronting this story, we can expect another hundred dopey stories tomorrow about whether the left might conceivably muster a primary challenge to him after all. Answer: Nope, which was the same answer the last thousand times that question was posed, but let’s not let that deter a good news cycle. Don’t believe me? Well, check out who’s just thrown his hat in the ring for the Democratic nomination, replete with calls for a new 9/11 investigation. That’s how serious the “primary” movement is.

Here’s Rep. Jay Inslee, caught by CNN in the midst of a daydream about how the left’s caucus tantrum is somehow going to derail this deal. Hey, Jay? Even Barney Frank wants Pelosi to bring it to the floor. Presidential prestige is on the line here, and like it or not, much of the Democrats’ remaining prestige depends on Obama’s. Especially since they’re not going to do better than this deal with Boehner about to take over and they all know it. Exit question: How stressed is Obama right now? Dude, you don’t know the half of it.

Obama made a deal with the devil to get elected and now he’s suffering the consequences. Whoever said the radical, rabid left was either fair or sane?

*Obligatory Disclaimer: Not literally sniped at, of course. Sigh.

I fully expect Hollywood, the Press, other political figures, etc to back up whoever this is’s right to free speech. H*ll, they should be applauding it, inviting the person to dinner, and treating him/her like a folk hero. Like they did anytime President Bush was disrespected.

Lot of anger out there on the left, maybe it’s time to start worrying about their violent tendencies and prepare accordingly. I’d suggest shutting down all left-wing media outlets so they can’t fan the flames of liberal anger.
