It’s like he’s not even trying, anymore:
Obama couldn’t even get his manners right. Ever the partisan, he took a shot at his host, Holland Congressional representative Pete Hoekstra who was in the audience. Despite opposing the Recovery Act, Hoekstra attended the ground-breaking ceremony, he told The View, “out of respect for the office of president.”
The respect was not returned. “Some made the political calculation that it’s better to obstruct than to lend a hand,” sneered Obama at the end of his remarks. “Now that doesn’t stop them from being at ribbon cuttings, but that’s OK.”
And then the president jumped in his 10 mpg Caddy limo and headed to the next stop on his tour to transform what Americans drive.
Jonah Goldberg wonders: when did the rules change?
Remember the days of Reagan and Tip O’Neill managing to be cordial and social after a day of battle? This president can’t do that. He’s too small.
