by Lone SharkA new e-book just published yesterday by POLITICO and Random House entitled “Obama’s Last Stand” is disclosing major trouble and discord within President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign team. POLITICO White House Correspondent Glenn Thrush, the e-book’s author interviewed numerous current and former Obama advisers who gave him the inside scoop about the numerous conflicts between his high-level surrogates as well as Obama’s deep-seated personal contempt for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
But then there’s this little tidbit about the President that is yet another example of the trademark disdain and disrespect that Obama can’t help but exhibit towards his political opponents which shows just how little this “man” is-
Obama is sometimes portrayed as a reluctant warrior, sorry to see 2012 marked by so much partisan warfare but forced by circumstance to go along. But this perception is by most evidence untrue. In the interviews with current and former Obama aides, not one said he expressed any reservations about the negativity. He views it as a necessary part of campaigning, as a natural — if unpleasant — rotation of the cyclical political wheel.
Obama’s trash-talking competitiveness, a trait that has defined him since his days on the court as a basketball-obsessed teenager in Hawaii, was on display one night last February, when the president spotted a woman he knew was close to Sen. Marco Rubio in a Florida hotel lobby. “Is your boy going to go for [vice president]?” the president asked her. Maybe, she replied.“Well,” he said, chuckling, according to a person who witnessed the encounter. “Tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked.”
“Get his ass kicked?” How magnanimous of our grandstanding Blamer-In-Chief, the man who is ear-deep in hypocrisy, distortions, lies, power grabs, cronyism, corruption, and economic failure. I’m sure that condescendingly snide remark made his “boy” Mayor Rahm Emmanuel chuckle. As the saying goes, you can take the boy out of the Chicago thug-style political scene…
