    on the local DC news station, WTOP.  They had a guy who apparently is the editor of something called "West Wing Report", some blog that I've only recently heard of.  He said, "This is the first time I've heard him being nasty" (that's just about verbatim, by the way).  They thought THAT was nasty?  I'd have reamed the Republicans a new orifice somewhere inconvenient it it had been me doing this news conference.

    I thought Mr. Obama was telling the truth about the Republicans here, even though in other parts of the news conference I thought he was using right wing framing.  And this is why, perhaps, he feels the need to not seem belligerent.

    "Without viable unions to serve as a counterweight to corporate power, America's working people and their families are at the mercy of the largest and most powerful economic organizations on the planet."

    •  One wonders how today's MSM would react (0+ / 0-)

      to LBJ's tactics back in the day.

      Love him or hate him, he knew how to play hard ball, and he could throw high, inside fastballs in his sleep.

      The most violent element in society is ignorance.
