President Obama is at it again. His recent comments at a recent fundraiser mocking GOP Presidential hopefuls trying to depict them as weak and whiners are a hoot to the Democrats. If you are so inclined, you can watch it here:
But here is the lesson Obama constantly forgets: people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Oh, and they shouldn’t forget there is video, either. Let’s just begin with Obama’s choice of a Russian leader as an example of “talking tough.” Really? Clearly Obama has forgotten this little tidbit caught on video:
Uh huh. Way to show Russia who’s boss there, Obama! Never mind ALL that has transpired with Putin over the last few years – taking over part of Ukraine, going into Syria, and more. Yep – Obama was REAL strong there – not.
Specifically regarding debates, though, since Obama sought to make a mockery of Republicans after a debate by CNBC that was widely decried by Republicans and Democrats alike, comes a reminder from Ben Carson. Breitbart has the story:
[…] “That wouldn’t happen to be the same President Obama who was afraid to go on Fox, would it?” Carson said with a laugh, during an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily.
“Must be a different guy,” said Carson, who recently topped a NBC News/WSJ poll. “That’s just ridiculous,” he added.
Late Monday, Obama taunted the GOP candidates for withdrawing from the planned NBC debate. “They say, ‘When I talk to [Russian president Vladimir] Putin, he’s going to straighten out’ … and then it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators,” Obama scoffed.
Carson dismissed Obama’s heckle. “I think [there’s] universal accord on the idea that CNBC was way off base with that [October] debate.” Carson said.
“Do you face the problem head-on? I believe in facing problems head-on,” he added, referring to the collective decision by GOP candidates to withdraw from NBC’s planned debate. NBC is the parent company of CNBC. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
Clearly it must have been a “different guy” who downright REFUSED to show up at a debate by Fox. The GOP routinely show up for debates hosted by networks with a known bias against them. And Obama chooses to make fun of THEM??
Take a look in the mirror, Mr. President. Your mockery of Republicans says way more about you than it does them. Like how hypocritical you are, how thin-skinned, how duplicitous, and how arrogant. And Carson highlights how cowardly you are by not showing up on Fox when you had the opportunity to do so.
And Branco from Legal Insurrection sums up the “glass house” problem for Obama with this cartoon perfectly:
And there you have it.
There is more going on, and you can feel free to talk about the above or whatever else is on your minds. But since I am dealing with a major arthritic flare-up in my right hand/wrist, this is it for me So have at it – this is an Open Thread.
