Losing His Cool
While at a Democrat fundraiser in Los Angeles Monday Night, President Barack Obama was shouted down several times by gay audience member’s chants for repeal of the Military’s “Don’t ask, Don’t Tell” policy. As you can see in the video below, the President, once known as the king of cool, was genuinely pissed off.
There is an old adage, “you cannot please all of the people all of the time”, but this President just does not get that. Obama just cannot conceive of anyone in America disagreeing with him.
“I just don’t know why you’re hollerin’.”
The most interesting aspect of the matter is that these are the President’s people. Barack Obama supports the repeal and has been working with the military to eliminate the policy.
A savvy politician would have seized the opportunity to fire up his own base base, but instead the President showed genuine disdain for his own supporters. Where a political opportunist like Bill Clinton would have shown compassion and a connection with those shouting out for what they believed in, which is what Clinton and Obama believe in as well, Barack Obama displayed arrogance and disdain that anyone could question his motives any aspect of his policy.
Attacked by the left and protested by the right; how long will it be before this thin-skinned President attempts to ban all forms of dissent in our country?
