I usually try to avoid criticizing politician’s character flaws as I prefer ripping apart their policies and political beliefs. Once in a while I’m willing to set aside this preference because the character flaw is either humorous or stupid enough that it’s worth noting; this is one of those times. It seem President Obama can’t take the heat as he was complaining about all the flak he’s received since getting seated in the Oval Office, even going so far as to say he’s received more criticism than Lincoln did:
“Democracy is always a messy business in a big country like this,” Obama responded. “When you listen to what the federalists said about the anti-federalists … those guys were tough. Lincoln, they used to talk about him almost as bad as they talk about me.”
People in Lincoln’s time only almost talked about Lincoln as bad as people of today talk about Obama? I guess that’s true… so long as you remove the fact that Lincoln was assassinated. Getting a bullet in the back of your head is probably one of the harshest forms of criticism that exists. Using this comparison makes Obama look like a whiny, sniveling, bitch (which he is).
Stop being a bitch Obama, you’re the president of an entire country. Thanks to your ability to issue executive orders you’re practically a dictator. Your life isn’t that bad and the criticisms you’ve been receiving are downright civil compared to the criticisms most members of Parliament in the United Kingdom receive from their fellow members. Suck it up and take it like everybody else does.
