    many of the things you are crediting to the President he never said.

    And the things that he did say, when placed in the context in which they were presented, hardly rise to the level of the ascerbic rhetoric that I see here on the daily.

    It just doesn't.

      We are talking about his press secretary, chief of staff, and senior advisor. Many of the comments came in public forums, including pressers and Sunday talkies. There was never any public attempt by the president to distance himself from those comments nor any attempt to mend fences.

      Rahm talking about progressives as "fucking retarded" does not rise to the level of acerbic rhetoric we have here?

      It is fine to question how things are phrased here or on other forums. However, just understand that the tone and acerbic comments coming out of the president's inner circle are politically stupid. And when he comes to hostage taking or pawn using, the invective from the president needs to be directed at the malignant Teapublicans. Playing hardball with the base and paddy-cake with conservatives is not helpful.

      Be radical in your compassion.

        there is a reason for that. Rahm said 'this is fucking retarded', not 'You are a fucking retard', which is quite a difference. You chose to miscite in order to feel more offended. Why the victim pose?

        He who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
