    want the same thing.  Your comment would have been fine if you hadn't succumbed to hyperbole and gone that extra emotional mile.

      I'm not sure that word means what you think it means. The teabaggers want to see him get angry at the podium and certain people here have explicitly stated they want to see him get angry at the pulpit.

        People here would see him getting angry as a positive thing.

    •  No Kidding! "Many people here want the same" (!!!) (2+ / 0-)

      Utter nonsense. Horrible thing to say. I have been angry with Pres Obama, but to suggest that I or anyone else here hopes that he loses it and physically handles someone! That is a sick comment.
