The Left is not happy with their messiah.
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 “fuck 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.”
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) was also overheard saying that “we can’t trust him” not to cave to Republicans and extend the tax cuts again in two years, according to a Democratic source.
The anger aimed at the bill was widespread. As Democrats moved to block the bill from coming up on the floor, chants of “Just say no!” could be heard by reporters outside the room.
Bernie Sanders vented his spleen in an 8 hour marathon.
The muzzie Senator from Minnessota, Kieth Ellison, appeared on Minnesota public radio and suggested that Democrats should create a ‘crisis’ around the holidays so the GOP will extend the benefits and allow taxes to increase next year.
Ellison’s referrence to the Christmas holiday is ironic.
What has the Dems’ panties in a wad is that the bill simply extends the tax rates (cuts) that GW put in place, thereby preventing an increase.
Jesse’s spawn weighs in:
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) criticized Obama’s plan to extend all tax rates for two years as following in the vein of “Reaganomics,” the free market-oriented policies sought by the GOP president when he was in office in the 1980s.
“If we recklessly cut taxes for the wealthiest 2 percent, then Obamanomics will look an awful lot like Reaganomics,” Jackson said in a statement.
Democrats on Capitol Hill have been up in arms over the deal Obama struck with Republicans to extend expiring tax rates in exchange for an extension of unemployment benefits and other middle-class tax breaks.
Hell, if only Obama actually practiced Reaganomics instead of socialist Obamanomics.
The “wealthiest 2%”….you mean the ones that already pay the most taxes? The business owners who create jobs and hire people? The Dems sure have a hard on for capitalism and success.
My advice to those who don’t think they pay enough taxes: By all means, send a blank check to the IRS.
Back in September, when the Obama regime took pot shots at their leftwing pals, David (“astoturf) Axlerod was accused of “hippie punching”:
Top Obama adviser David Axelrod got an earful of the liberal blogosphere’s anger at the White House moments ago, when a blogger on a conference call directly called out Axelrod over White House criticism of the left, accusing the administration of “hippie punching.”
“We’re the girl you’ll take under the bleachers but you won’t be seen with in the light of day,” the blogger, Susan Madrak of Crooks and Liars, pointedly told Axelrod on the call, which was organzied for liberal bloggers and progressive media.
The call seemed to perfectly capture the tense dynamic that exists between the White House and the online and organized left: Though White House advisers in the past have dumped on the left, anonymously and even on the record, Axelrod repeatedly pleaded with the bloggers on the call for help in pumping up the flagging enthusiasm of rank and file Dems.
The lover’s spat has developed into nasty divorce proceedings.
You know it’s bad when Queef Olberdouche lashes out at Obama:
He ranted on everything THE ANNOINTED ONE has failed to accomplish; GITMO, government-run ObamaCare, and “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, with the requisite “Bush is a criminal” shit thrown in for good measure.
More from the NY Post:
When gods Bleed:
Ever since the election, the meme has been building on the left that the once-glorious emperor isn’t tough enough, that he has squandered his steamroller majorities in both houses of Congress and all he has to show for it is the electoral albatross of ObamaCare.
Anger has been growing — anger over what might have been (in the Democrats’ telling), had Obama ruthlessly hunted down those he frankly characterized as “enemies” and destroyed the legacy of the hated George W. Bush, rather than continuing it in such matters as Guantanamo, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and, now, the prolongation of the Bush tax structure.
The right saw him differently. To them, Obama was every inch the ruthless Chicago machine pol, a credentialed matchstick of modest personal accomplishment manipulated with ease by the unholy spawn of ’30s gangsters and ’60s Marxists that control the Democratic Party: a kind of latter-day Warren G. Harding.
……This leaves “progressive” Democrats like Olbermann and Katrina van den Heuvel in a state of rage unseen since . . . well, since Bush was president. Only this time, they’re not enjoying it.
So which is the real Obama? Conquering avenger or hapless stooge?
A man who has never been tested, who’s never had a door slammed in his face, who’s never been told to take a hike, who’s won every fixed fight he’s been in, is getting his first taste of adversity.
What really frustrates Queef, Obama, and the rest of the leftwing contingency, is that the oppressive, unconsitutional, socialist autocracy ran right smack into the outrage of the American people. The blacks, Hispanics, and white liberals who voted pigment over substance, aren’t getting that utopia they counted on, and the rest of us who saw right through his bullshit from the beginning, are fighting him tooth and nail. That’s why he won’t get away with the “fundamemtal change” he wants. Not that he, Pelosi, and Reid haven’t tried. The destruction they’ve done so far has been checked by the American public, and you can bet your ass we will demand that the Republican House majority get busy repairing the damage.
