President Obama Says What We’ve All Been Thinking

President Obama mocked the Republican presidential field at a fundraiser last night because they "can't handle a bunch of CNBC moderators."

"Let me tell you, if you can’t handle those guys then I don’t think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about it," Obama said during an Democratic fundraiser at the Richard Rodgers Theater in Manhattan, drawing laughter and applause from a crowd of more than 1,300 supporters.

I can see how asking a Republican to do the math on their economic policy would be frightening, but he's right.

The president also hit Republicans on climate change and their "different reality."

"They occupy a different reality it seems. According to them, everything was really good in 2008. When we were going through the worst economic crisis in our lifetimes. Unemployment and uninsured rates were up and we were hopelessly addicted to foreign oil and Bin Laden was still on the loose. This, apparently, was the golden age that I messed up."

I wish I could vote for him again.

    But, but according to Emos Obama is really a Republican! And so is Hillary!

    ….but we know the truth. They are Democrats, period. And Obama has been the most progressive President in the last half-century.

    Absolutely love Zero Fucks Obama. He’s had to hold this in for 7 years. Time to let them rip.

    President Obama is so many different kinds of cool…

    Something tells me he’s going to be even better after he leaves office.

      As he gets closer to leaving office I would expect that he’ll ramp up the snark in order to help boost the next Democratic candidate. Now let’s hope that any Democrat running for office embraces President Obama and his administrations achievements over the last 8 years instead of distancing themselves from them as they did in 2010.

        And let’s hope that those who usually bleat about how “both parties are the same” shut the f#@! up and understand that the GOP are truly bats**t insane and cannot be allowed to control the White House and the Congress at the same time. Too much is at stake.

        Yeah…that was a huge mistake. Came, I think, from believing the Far Right&#8482 when they say that the “vast majority of Americans” agree with them.

    Yes! About time Democrats were that blunt about Republican shit.

    With all sincerity: Thanks, Obama!

    • Draxiar

      Now if they can only keep on with that same bluntness.

      • Christopher Foxx

        Yes.

        But you know they won’t.

    Cue every Righty, to claim Donald Trump or Ben Carson would be a billion times tougher on Vova, Manly Authoritarian Man Of Action, than Obummer.

    Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin is looking at the Wikipedia entries for Trump and Carson and laughing like a drain, while Xi Jinping wonders if America has collectively gone mad.
