Mr. Thin-Skinned Petty-Pants really knows how to hold a grudge!

By Chrissy the Hyphenated

After a Dec 11, 2006, press conference, then-Senator Obama sought out New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd to complain about a comment she had made about him in her October 21, 2006 column (SEVEN WEEKS earlier).

In paragraph TWELVE of the FOURTEEN paragraph column, she wrote:

He’s intriguingly imperfect: His ears stick out, he smokes, and he’s written about wrestling with pot, booze and ”maybe a little blow” as a young man.

He told her he did not like people talking about his ears.

Dowd said, “We’re trying to toughen you up.”

Clearly, it didn’t work.

Chrissy’s Site Bites:

Several pundits, including one at MSNBC called Obama’s remark to Dowd a “rookie mistake.”

Obama apologists whined that he’d been KIDDING, wah wah.

Yeah, right. Pretending to be kidding is how people politely tell other people to go to hell. Nobody is fooled except the fools who support Obama.

What stands out for me is that way back in 2006, Obama was called out for a “rookie” mistake … and here he is, in his third year in the highest office in the land, making the same mistake.

But then … his VP doesn’t seem to know that Loose Lips Sink Ships … and he’s been in high public office for ages.

    Didn’t John Stewart say last night that Sarah Palin was thin-skinned? Although to look at her one would not think it so, but I think her skin must be armor-plated in comparison.

      Stewart isn’t using the term properly.

      “Thin-skinned” means “Oversensitive, especially to criticism or insult.” It is precisely what Obama has demonstrated on numerous occasions, of which I’ve cited only two.

      If Sarah were anywhere close to “oversensitive” about criticism or insults, she’d have completely lost her tunes long ago and been packed away to one of those places where they keep everyone drugged to the gills and make them eat with plastic spoons for their own safety.

      What Stewart and his ilk are referring to are those occasions when Sarah has corrected politicians and reporters who have lied about her policies. That’s not being over sensitive. That’s speaking truth to power.

      Lefties just don’t like it when conservatives do it. It makes them look like the fools they are.

      So they call names. It’s their only defense.


  2. Like “gutsy”, I think “Sarah’s thin-skinned” is this weeks buzz words on the smelly left. Oh, and she’s “stupid” too. It all goes back to the Couric interview….is that all they have? One interview? How about Bam’s interviews, that is, those he handpicks, then gives them the questions, and he rehearses the answers ?

      Have you ever seen Media Malpractice? It does a blistering expose on that Couric interview. It was HEAVILY edited to make Sarah look as bad as possible.

      Netflix recently added the flick to their list, so you can finally see it without having to buy it. Any Sarah fan should definitely see it at least once.


    • I remember watching that interview and thinking that I would have been totally unprepared for a lot of the question, like… “What’s your favorite scene from a movie and why?” Why would we want to know that about VP candidates? Did it help you make your decision? One could argue that they were trying to lighten the mood by asking some fun, light-hearted questions, but why include those particular questions in the final product if it’s edited? Biden, of course, had his answer all worked out in great detail as if he had prepared for that exact question beforehand. I guess his handler’s just knew that was coming.

    Obama is a spoiled,petulant child in a grown up body.He’s always gotten everything easily,using his skin tone as a shield.He craves being the center of attention and anyone who disagrees with him is assaulted by his lackeys since he’s too gutless to do it unless they can’t fight back.In short,he’s a pile of what I used to clean out of our chicken coop.
    Rush was talking today about the 501(C)4’s who put millions into the last election.The Kenyan has sicced the IRS on them the same way Slick Willy did.They play as dirty as they need to to win.They play for blood and our guys are worried about whether the press will say bad things about them.
    Hopefully some people with real guts will stand up and say “that’s wrong” the way Allen West does.We can only hope.

    One of the reasons I really favor Sarah for the White House is that she has the same gift Reagan had for handling her political opponents and the leftist media.

    My all time fave (to date) was when she wrote HI MOM! on her hand. Hee hee.

    The whole thing about her writing notes on her hand is SO STUPID. I think sometimes I’m the only person I know who does NOT do that and it’s only because my skin is so hypersensitive, I can’t even wear 24K gold jewelry.

    I don’t want to think about what ink would do. Probably give me a rash that spelled out somebody’s phone number LOL.
