Why was he called this? I can't load any of the video footage right now from work. I heard it was on "Morning Joe" this morning.

Well yeah, I'm sure he is. He's a politician, right?

He had a very arrogant cocky attitude a couple time and really did come across as a total asswipe

It was on MSNBC "Morning Joe" this morning. Time magazine's Mark Halperin that said it. They spent the rest of the show apologizing.

I wish I would have seen it. I bet it was hilarious. President "Dick" Obama must have been very cocky in that presser he had yesterday.

Obama going into the 4th of July is in trouble.

What happened to the 7 second delay?

The clip i saw made it look like he gave fair warning what he was going to say and that the 7-second delay button should be ready.

MSDNC didn't get to its place in the media world by allowing those kinds of factual statements to be aired. Derr.

False. Beck just jumps right to calling him a Nazi.

Historically, socialism tends to be fronted by a popular black leade-.......wait...

I, for one, miss his totally non-dickish predecessor.

I'd think that having 3 $#itty presidents in a row would make one less tolerable of blatant stupidity...

3+ years into it and obots are still using Bush as the best justification of the failure of obama. Really sad for our country.

This comment is a sure indicator of someone who has never listened to Glenn Beck.

It doesn't even round to 3 years, but when are facts important. That guy is saying things I don't like, so he's a dick.

Andrew Sullivan, per usual, hits the nail on the head.

Forget the suspension. What's interesting to me is how this non-pareil in empty conventional wisdom hacks viewed yesterday's presser. In the negotiations with the Republicans, Obama and the Dems have offered a couple of trillion in cuts. The Republicans have refused even to discuss increasing tax revenues in return. For the president to react with understated anger strikes me as perfectly natural and overdue.

I despair of ever figuring Sully out. He has an amazing knack for stating a series of premises I agree with and coming to the complete opposite conclusion that I took from the flow of argument.

Like, "I'm a small government conservative who believes that we should constantly be reassessing the efficacy of even the most well intentioned programs, . . . and that's why I'm so chuffed by Obama's cool reserve."

Grover Norquist, dick to hypothetical grandmothers everywhere.

http://blogs.kqed.org/newsfix/2011/06/28/video-grover-norquist-fresh-off-california-victory-on-stephen-colbert/

At the end of the interview, Colbert poses this hypothetical situation:

Terrorists have kidnapped all of our grandmothers. They've got them in a subterraneean borough, and they've all been slathered with honey, and the terrorists are going to release fire ants who will bite our grandmothers to death. Their only demand is that we increase the marginal tax rate on the top 2% of Americans. Do we increase the tax rate or do we let our grandmothers die by ant bite?

Norquist's response:

I think we console ourselves with the fact that we have pictures and memories.
