So Mr. President Man went on the teevee yesterday (above) in some sad attempt to paint himself as a victim — a victim of liberal leftists upset over his giant compromise on the Bush tax cuts. Oh, speaking of liberal leftists: Below, Rachel Maddow fists the president.
Calling liberals “sanctimonious,” Obama is going after the wrong party, claims Maddow. She might be — oh hell, she is — right! See, the GOP is holding “hostage” (the president’s words) the American government, and Obama’s plan is to negotiate with hostage takers for the good of the people. I guess? And this will change Republican strategy, and mute their leverage, how?
