Obama fires back at AIDS protesters, tells them to hassle GOP – The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room

October 30, 2010

This is what happens when a politician promises the world to voters, but fails to follow through.

Not following through with promises is a problem many politicians have. We all remember GHWB and his “read my lips, no new taxes” and how he eventually did raise taxes. That pretty much cooked his goose for a second term. President Obama is now facing the same criticism and he’s dealing with it as he normally deals with issues of accountability: he’s blaming someone else.

As narcissistic as he is, one would think that Obama would be concerned with how he appears before crowds. As I watch him, I’m embarrassed for him as he tries to dodge responsibility for his actions. Rather than projecting the image of professionalism and genuineness, he becomes infantile, almost as though he were a child stomping its feet having a temper tantrum. Other than Jimmy Carter, who likewise tended to shift blame for his problems onto others, I can’t remember a president who has acted so childishly as The One.
