That’s going to be the question of the day, Friday, and perhaps for the weekend. But I think we’ll know by the end of the weekend:
The frustration with President Barack Obama over his tax cut compromise was palpable and even profane at Thursday’s House Democratic Caucus meeting.
One unidentified lawmaker went so far as to mutter “f— the president” while Rep. Shelley Berkley was defending the package the president negotiated with Republicans. Berkley confirmed the incident, although she declined to name the specific lawmaker.
“It wasn’t loud,” the Nevada Democrat said. “It was just expressing frustration from a very frustrated Member.”
Remember how Joe Wilson was castigated for shouting something everyone knew was true at an Obama health care speech in September, 2009? And how Judge Samual Alito was castigated for simply shaking his head and mouthing the words, “not true”….during Obama’s horrendous 2010 State of the Union speech?
Pretty tame stuff compared to what Democrats are saying behind Obama’s back. Yes, more than one Dem were throwing F bombs at the meeting. According to Howard Fineman, appearing on a subdued Keith Olbermann’s show, there was liberal use of the F word in that closed door meeting, including “No f’n way”, “he effed it up”…
A fun thought experiment: Imagine it had been a closed door Republican meeting where Reps had hurled F-bombs at the young, historic, black President. Would Olby’s reaction had been a timid, (ahhhhmmm, kinda strong, huh?)…or perhaps something a bit more severe ?
At any rate, via The Blaze, FBN contributor Charles Payne says someone owes Joe Wilson an apology:
Why didn’t the judge point out to Occidental College Professor Carolyn Hellman, that poor people don’t pay taxes, so how can you give them a “tax cut”?
I wonder if she had the same Marxist Professors Obama did?
