    Obama is already branded an angry socialist who hates white people.  He can't afford to lose his temper.  His maturity for the last two and half years is what makes the Republicans look like the absurd asshats they are.
    And by the way, Obama won this deal:  http://www.editedforclarity.com/...

      ...Obama shouldn't care excessively about racists who are going to dis him at every turn. He's still there president but listening to them is pointless.

      OTOH - getting really angry is not useful, politically. Getting a bit heated and pointing out the reckless Tea Party nature or the Repubs would be. Solidify your dwindling base and make points with independents. Win-win.

      A lot of people on this board are really pissed and expressing it, hoping their president will do the same: well, certainly not to the extent of their anger.
