If Bush had said this the Right would clap and applaud him for being tough.

When Obama says it, he's given bad black stereotypes.

Keep it classy tea baggers

Yep, because no child ever heard the word "ass" before and will never ever hear it in their lifetime. Other people made good points on this aspect, too .

at the media criticism. For christ's sake, can this country make up its damn mind already? First he's not angry enough. Then he's too angry. Then he's got to have the right "kind" of anger, whatever that means. Then he's got to be careful how angry he is so he doesn't step on any race's toes. Then it's this, then it's that, then it's enough to make any sane person's head explode. I want to kick BP's ass, too, what does that say about me?

Here's a thought: how about we let Obama do...what Obama wants to do? How about we let Obama handle this crisis the best way he knows how? Hey, there's a novel idea!

This sort of pointless discussion the media and various political groups and whatnot bring up is precisely why we can't get crap done. Our entire focus should be on how to fix the problem in the Gulf.

Six months ago I would have honestly given the president a 90% chance of being re-elected.

Today? 60%. And less than that if Democrats hold the House and Senate in November.

He then said Obama was "going a little gangsta for us to feign authoritative behavior." [Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show, 6/8/10]

Davis: Obama's comment is "like Urkel channeling Jay-Z." Later in the Limbaugh show, Davis complained that Obama's comments were "galvanizingly off-putting" because they were "so contrived and so orchestrated." He added that the comments were "like Urkel channeling Jay-Z." [The Rush Limbaugh Show, 6/8/10]

Crowley: Obama "is Carlton Banks, not Suge Knight." In a blog post headlined "Gulf Oil Leak: Carlton Banks to the Rescue!" Fox News political analyst and radio host Monica Crowley likened Obama to fictional character Carlton Banks, writing that "Obama trying to show he's an angry avenger when he's essentially an automaton isn't going to work either. He is Carlton Banks, not Suge Knight. He's a navel-gazing, community organizing law professor, not a put-a-cap-in-your-ass gangbanger."
Nothing racist in these comments.

Nope.

No way.

I don't think I've ever had your level of confidence in Obama's chances of being re-elected. It was too soon to make a judgement like that six monhts ago and it's too soon now.

that sounds about right, honestly. i still like obama, and he's had a hell of a time since becoming president. things like the recession and the oil spill would've happened regardless, but this could've been handled better for sure.

haven't you been listening? the tea baggers are totally NOT racist, okay? they've said so.

in fact, the only racism going on is the accusation of racism, which is far worse than actual racism.

I don't see one in 2012. That's why I give the president a 60% shot.

which has been his remarkably steady approval rating over the past year or so.

in 2006, we thought it was a lock: Giuliani vs. Hillary.

given the wild unpredictability of the world -- oil spills! -- and the volatility of the electorate and the fact that we're in very much uncharted waters, i can't even begin to guess how 2012 is going to shape up.
