Sometimes a Snark isn’t a Snark

My snarky post yesterday wasn’t that far off base. After I posted my snark, I did hear Joe Scarborough ranting and raving about President Obama’s demeanor as he met with Chavez and others. I’m not sure what Joe would have liked the President to have done when he came face to face with Chavez. Should he have given him a wedgie, stuck out his tongue, given him the finger, or what?

Pat Buchanan suggested President Obama should have demanded respect for his country. See? That’s one of the problems. We shouldn’t demand respect, we have to re-earn respect in the world. Being the jerk country with the jerk president just doesn’t cut it in the world, as the previous eight years have shown us.

While those on the right criticize the President’s demeanor, the people in other countries are seeing him and watching him. They don’t see him as a continuation of the last President, they see a pleasant, mild mannered and well mannered leader of the free world. I’m just guessing here, but I bet they like what they see. I do.

If those on the right spent as much time trying to come up with ideas that would benefit the country as they do picking nits, someone might actually seriously listen to what they have to say.

those on the right - suck. the arrogance, hubris and condescdending attitude of folks like scarborough and buchanan is nothing but nauseating. you wonder how awful a childhood someone like morning schmoe must have had to grow up with such a unrealistic view of the world - that everything revolves around him

i wonder what kind of arrogance joe would show if they started to investigate the dead girl in his office.

he is EVERYTHING that is wrong with the media

What a socialist chump. You think Nixon would have shook hands with Mao or Brezhnev?

I'd like to know what they think would've happened had Obama walked up to Chavez and "demanded" respect. As if that would've solved all our problems and made Chavez cower in a corner to ponder our "greatness."

I guess these guys don't know the meaning or the wisdom of taking the high road. They're too busy fantasizing about Obama kneeing Chavez in the groin, looking down on his sputtering and groaning form, and saying, "BOO-YAH, beeyotch!" Because THAT would really accomplish something.

They pick nits because that is all they can find. This isn't a guy who's gonna get caught playing naughty cigar games. They're doing everything they can to undermine him - and at least from my chair, they are looking like pathetic schoolyard bullies, not people I want running the country or representing me to the world.

Kind of like during the campaign - "His name rhymes with Osama!", "He didn't wear a flag pin" "Someone he knows said/did something we don't approve of" - and other things that made me just think - Is this the BEST they can find in negatives on the guy? If so, he's got MY vote!!

... spent as much time trying to come up with ideas ...At best, they got nothing. At worst, they're trying to protect their patrons.

the thing that bugs me about Joe is he is so sanctimonious.
watching him go on about the torture memos this week has been excrucitating.
but, as usual, he and the right couch themselves in "we disagreed with Bush on this one thing hence we are pure" and continue to foam at the mouth.
they just don;t get it and if the Dems can work it right they Reps will be not be a factor for a long long time
