To quote the Big Dog himself. You know the Republican Party has a lot of Brass when it accuses Barack Obama of saying nasty things when they themselves have done it. Most of the latest Faux Outrage from the GOP deals with Obama using salty language.

Douglas Brinkley, who wrote the Rolling Stone article, recalled an exchange with Obama and Rolling Stone executive editor Eric Bates, who said that his daughter told him to tell the president, "You can do it."

Obama reportedly grinned. "You know, kids have good instincts," he said. "They look at the other guy and say, 'Well, that's a bulls****er, I can tell.'"

So when I saw the Unbridled GOP bleating, moaning, whining, etc. today. I just flat out laughed. This is a party who has called the President of the United States just short of everything but the n-word. So as Bill Clinton said, you have to have a lot of brass to accuse somebody of something like that when you have been saying things many times worse then what Obama said.

Oh and if the GOP wants to say it diminishes the office of the Presidency, maybe I'll just put this reminder up.

It's not the first time that the president has used unvarnished language. He has called Kanye West a "jackass" but added the rapper is "talented." Neither is he the first candidate to curse: then-candidate George W. Bush called New York Times reporter Adam Clymer a "major league asshole" over a hot mic, to which vice-presidential nominee Dick Cheney agreed.
Granted, Bush was just a candidate and not President, but let me ask you something GOP, does what President Bush say diminish the office of the presidency if your going to play this game?

This is what we are dealing with. We're dealing with a bunch of cranky people on the otherside who honestly it seems just have no joy at all, when I'm watching Mitt Romney talk the atmosphere seems very gloom and doom and not happy at all, when I watch Barack Obama, I like how he's very light, very happy, having fun not being too nasty and it shows. I see confidence in Obama, Romney knows he is losing this and just telling from his body language he knows he's only got a few more days till he goes back to his Mansion in Massachusetts.

So let me just put it to you simply. Our Team has the momentum, they just ran out of it and Richard Mourdock just helped drop an Anvil on The Good Ship GOP yesterday, it's going to take them a while to repair that spot.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
