      Yeah. He always seems right on the edge of losing it.

      (Idiot.)

      So, you're admitting he's not an Arab?
      ...
      After you said he was?
      ...
      Making you... incorrect at least once?

      Based on what evidence? Is this a Stephen Colbert sketch?

      From this liberal's point of view, it seems to me that Rush is the one who is angry all the time, and the same goes for his teabagging listeners. The liberals I know are too happy or too mellow to take to the streets in protest. I have been to Hawaii, and know a few Hawaiians, they are more laid back and accepting, than angry. In many, the President is still very much the kid of Hawaii.

      I remember Larry King interviewing Bill Maher right after the election, and Maher said that Obama has the same temperament as Colin Powell (King agreed and said it was a good point). Honestly, is it possible to be more wrong than Limbaugh here? Even those who legitimately dislike Obama can't find any example of outstanding anger on his part. Same with Michelle.

        The just don't know how to see black people in any other light.

        It's the same with women. Don't forget, they though Sarah Palin would capture some signifciant number of former Hillary voters! The MEN just grunted and figured that 'those women were dumb enough to vote for anyone in a skirt.'

        And you'd be hard-pressed even now to convince themotherwise. And these same people look at President Obama and see Malcolm X. Because that's all they know.

      If Obama is "angry", he certainly hides it well.

        With all those smiles and light-hearted banter coming from the Prez methinks Rush is full of it... full of anger, that is.

      I, like many others on here, find it highly amusing that Obama is painted as angry at all. He's a pretty cool cat, even the most partisan republican can see that. He doesn't get ruffled easily, or at all, and even though they've made an all out assault on his presidency already, he seems pretty calm, cool, and collected.

      I especially love it when they talk about how angry he is, and then play a clip that purports to show his anger, and then which clip, then portrays the opposite of what they're saying. They will then go on to shout on the radio how ANGRY Obama sounds, and do people fall for this? Apparently so.

      It wasn't so long ago they were calling Michelle the angry militant wife. Is angry the new code word for "powerful" black person? And why are these white guys so scared of Obama?

      "I do believe that about the President. I do believe he is angry."

      -Rush Limbaugh

      Heard later that same day by a liberal commentator (me in my living room)

      "I do believe that about Rush Limbaugh, that he is an angry closeted gay man."

      Note: Both are opinions, and as such both are equally worthless since there are no supporting facts. The difference? One spouts his bullspit at his computer, and one has a microphone that will reach millions of people with no intellectual or critical abilities to actively -think- about what they've heard.

        The second opinion has more credibility, given Rush's terrible relationship history with women and his obsession over such things as 'bending over and taking it' and 'anal poisoning'.

        As a straight guy, I do not give things such as those any thought... unless Rush brings them up for the zillionth time and they are being discussed on a blog.

          Not to mention frequent trips to the DR which is a known haven for folks who like to diddle little boys.

      If I had the choice, I'd rather be an angry black guy than a fat, ill-informed, ignorant blowhard.
