I mean - just look at him:
I mean seriously - can you?
Why President Obama? Completely uncalled for and undeserved graciousness:
WASHINGTON — Dallas Republican Rep. Pete Sessions has been identified by several senators and aides of senators as the GOP leader who told President Barack Obama, “I cannot even stand to look at you,” during negotiations on the government shutdown, according to the Huffington Post.
But Sessions might be a victim of miscommunication, according to a statement the White House released this morning.
Sessions, the chairman of the House Rules Committee, was part of a group of House Republicans to meet with Obama during the shutdown. This week, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate, said he had been told that a House Republican leader uttered the line to the president during the meeting.
The allegation drew intense attention: It would be an unusually confrontational and personal thing for a lawmakers to say directly to a president, even amid heated disagreement over an issue like the shutdown.
