Barack Obama is a thin-skinned, over-sensitive man. He bristles under even mild criticism, and he can get petty and nasty very easily.
Until now, his often unprovoked attacks on Fox News and Conservatives have been the major evidence of this, and Liberals have laughed with him. Now, because of their strong opposition to the Pacific Trade Treaty (PTT) Obama desperately wants passed, Liberals are finally beginning to experience just how petty their Dear Leader can be. And they don't like it.
Not. One. Bit.
For the President to suggest that he knows more about trade then all of them do, and that they are all ignorant about the trade bill and trade policy, is staggeringly false and contemptuous of many who have been working on trade policy far longer than he has and know far more about trade, in truth, than he does.
Welcome to reality, Libs. Better late than never.
