So much for bipartisanship: Obama calls GOP “hostage-takers,” Boehner a “bomb-thrower;” attacks lib critics, too

President Obama looks haggard and peeved and petulant at his White House press briefing on the tax deal, still underway as I type.

Exuding his typical gracelessness, he pouted about being forced into negotiations, whined about “tax cuts for the wealthy” as the “Holy Grail” of the Republican Party, and yes, referred to the GOP as “hostage-takers.”

“It’s tempting not to negotiate with hostage takers, unless the hostage gets harmed…the hostage was the American people.”

So much self-pitying stuff and nonsense packed into one plaintive wail.

Have at it!


More: Next up, Obama calls John Boehner a “bomb thrower” and preens that he’s “itching for a fight” with the incoming House GOP majority.

And then: Obama spanks liberal critics of the tax deal for whining about his compromise. He cites their complaints over the “public option” in the Obamacare bill.

Someone had Crabby-os for breakfast this morning…


Here’s the hostage-taker video via The Right Scoop.

And here’s a reminder that he’s used the same rhetoric before. Flashback July 2010:


Save this video via Ian Schwartz: Obama vows the “unemployment rate is going to be going down.”
