What Happened to ‘No Drama Obama’?

Posted on | July 22, 2011 | 37 Comments

Turned the TV on this afternoon to try to get some news about the Oslo terrorism attacks and instead, I get a hectoring and angry President Obama.

It appears that House Speaker John Boehner has found his spine and isn’t going to be bullied into raising taxes, and this has driven the president into paroxyms of inchoate rage.

To quote Don Surber: “Washington has more Drama Queens than a Barney Frank luau on Fire Island.” And Obama’s the biggest queen of them all.

No more interrupting the actual news with your selfish hissy fits, Mr. President. There is nothing in the Constitution that requires Congress to ask “how high” when you say “jump.”

Get off my TV!

UPDATE: Linked by That Mr. G Guy — thanks! — and at The American Spectator, Quin Hillyer summarizes it in six words:

Obama’s Goal — a Crisis — Comes Nearer

It’s irresponsible as hell and, I agree with the commenter who said that was the “least presidential presidential press conference I’ve ever seen.”

Linked by Don Surber — thanks! — and by Aleister at American Glob, who has video of both Obama’s temper tantrum and Boehner’s response.
