Stop whining, Mr. President.
And stop whiffing.
Dont whinge off the record with columnists and definitely dont do it at a press conference with another world leader. It is disorienting to everybody, here at home and around the world.
I empathize with you about being thin-skinned. When you hate being criticized, its hard to take a giant steaming plate of you stink every day, coming from all sides. But you convey the sense that any difference on substance is lèse-majesté.
You simply proclaim what you believe as though you know it to be absolutely true, hoping we recognize the truth of it, and, if we dont, then weve disappointed you again.
Even some of the chatterers who used to be in your corner now make derogatory remarks about your manhood. And that, I know, really gets under your skin because you think they just dont get your style of coolly keeping your cards to yourself while you play the long game. Besides, how short memories are. You were the Ice Man who ordered up the operation that killed Osama bin Laden.
I also appreciate the fact that its harder for you than it was for J.F.K., W. and all those other pols who had their rich daddies and their rich daddies rich friends to buy anything they needed and connect them up and smooth the way for them. That gives them a certain nonchalance in the face of opprobrium and difficulty, a luxury that those who propel themselves to the top on their own dont have.

What's she talking about here? Dingy Harry and his ability to detect the smell of American Citizens who invade his private castle?
Woman you must be kidding...Barry hasn't done a damned thing on his own in his entire life.
If they told the truth about this adminstration,he would never have won a second term. Mo,have another bottle of vodka and go F yourself!
While the witch Maureen has a few things right here, this one shows she still has her blinders on:

The love affair and complicit cover-ups by the media are ten times more effective for O than all the rich daddies in the world combined!
And he STILL whines and whimpers like a baby........
Can anyone imagine where his numbers would be with a media that was even half-way objective? He’d probably lose half the African-American vote!
I don’t know what “whiffing” is.
Is this important?
What the heck????
Is she off her meds? Lunacy doesn’t make a column. Maybe it’s meant for the comics section?
P.S. He’s really thin-skinned about his Dumbo ears.
When you’ve lost MoDo...
Obama was the Ice Man on killing Ben Laden?
BS Dowd...He dithered as usual when confronted with the culmination of so many other peoples hard work.
Ultimately he had no choice but to pull the trigger ....
Had word leaked out that he didn’t do that, Obama would have been burnt toast in 2minutes.
Once he shook his head yes he spent the next 4 years trying to live on this “SUCCESS” and ramming it down our throats
No problemo: David Brooks still admires the crease in his mompants.
Hmmm. And to think she believed this once upon a time.
I think Barry has lost a lot of his educated liberal base, simply because stupidity will out and he's a stupid man who obviously made it to where he did simply on the base of personal ruthlessness in service of leftwing/anti-Western ideology. While they may like that in principle, his general ineptitude is showing and they realize he wasn't the liberal savior they dreamed of. Unless you're gay or black, of course, in which case, he's your guy.
Whiffing comes out of the baseball world, I believe, and means a failure to connect with the ball. Not a strike exactly, but they’ve simply glanced it, so it doesn’t really go anywhere. Or at any rate, that’s always been my understanding.
Babe Ruth has been deeply insulted.
