#1 Obama Mocks House Dem -- But Ends Up Looking Like Jerk03-14-2013, 11:39 PM
A Kildee Comeuppance? Or More Obama Aloofness?

Michigan Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee has been in Congress for a little more than two months, and today the leader of the free world gave him a gentle ribbing about just how new he is to Capitol Hill.
At a closed-door meeting between President Barack Obama and House Democrats, Kildee introduced himself as a freshman, to which Obama said, “Wow, you’re really classing up the place then.”
Kildee then proceeded to ask what one person described as a somewhat “long-winded” question about the importance of creating jobs for his economically distraught district.
“I can tell you’re a freshman because you didn’t pay much attention to the State of the Union,” Obama joked. “I talked about that.”
Amid the resulting laughter, House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra of California then offered to provide Kildee a printout of the speech.
Obama was referring to his $1 billion proposal for 15 manufacturing “innovation centers,” the details of which are still somewhat hazy.
Actually, though, the joke was on Obama: On Wednesday, Kildee had met with the White House legislative affairs team about the innovation centers proposal, so he was quite familiar with it.
And his question was broader, about what types of reforms are necessary to reform decaying urban centers like Flint, Mich., which Kildee represents.
“Dan wasn’t specifically talking about innovation centers in his question,” a spokesman said.
I stole Drudges headline but saying Obama looks like a jerk is like saying a frog looks like a reptile.

What a arrogant POS, even to people in his own party.
How this ChiTown thug conned this country into electing him...May the FORCE be with you!

No man is above the Great Obama .. The peace of pond scum.
I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

He should mock his own party members more often ...
Just might open their eyes as to what he, their beloved leader, really is!
Loyalty to none but himself and those big-buck doners and cronies of his.This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
~ William Shakespeare
