“Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true,” he told a crowd largely consisting of union members.
That is absolutely false.
Not a soul tells him to “roll over” to foreign leaders. He does that all on his own.
Perhaps if someone talked to him like a dog, they would say “Sit!” and make him stop playing golf and vacationing and actually do his job.
The wise would have told him “Stay!” in Iraq. Now the enemy has begun a surge of their own.
And while the term “bad dog” comes to mind with Obamacare and the wasteful spending, it seems Obama has not bee very obedient.
Dogs are both faithful and loyal. These are character traits Obama does not exhibit.
And perhaps if Obama would stop marking his territory people would stop treating him like a dog.
And perhaps he might ask President Bush about the rhetoric aimed at the President. I am sure “W” would say it comes with the territory.
But it is hard to gain respect for someone that still blames his predecessor after nearly two years. I imagine most of us would find our boss showing us the door if we blamed the person we replaced for our failures after this long. The voters got rid of the last administration because they were tired of excuses.
Looks like round two is on it’s way.
