There’s a Rumor Going ‘Round That Someone Had Themselves

…a royal hissy fit a couple days back. Oh, GOD, I hope it’s true.

…Shortly after the photo-op meeting and “working lunch” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the one that saw President Obama openly chastised by the Prime Minister for Obama’s earlier public comments regarding wanting to see Israel return to its 1967 borders, the president verbally “went off” on Richard Daley in the private study area that adjoins the Oval Office. President Obama’s verbal attack was clearly heard by numerous staff up and down the West Wing hallways.

The essence of the president’s rage and embarrassment can best be summed up with him yelling out very loudly,

What the f-ck was that!?

That phrase was apparently repeated a number of times in the span of about five minutes, a time period in which Obama’s voice became “louder and louder” and culminating in Obama exclaiming, “Never again! Do you understand me? Never again!” Any response by Bill Daley back to the president, if given, was not overheard.

    This is why we need a “grown-up” to run for the GOP nomination this coming year. (Personally, I sort of like Pawlenty at this point, but I’m reserving judgment for now).

    I’m SO tired of the “universe revolves around ME ME ME” mentality I get coming out of Washington.

    Payback’s a bitch, ain’t it?

    Certainly fits with how you’d assume he’d react.

    I’m waiting for his public meltdown. I’m pretty sure that will happen before the 2012 elections are held.

    Is it wrong that I’m giggling like an idiot over this?

    You should have seen my face posting this.

    I have no shame in admitting I found it the height of schaedenfreude. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving asshole.

    I finally was able to see Netanyahu’s lecture, and I found it very reasonable and I think that if B. Hussein thought it insulting, then perhaps he should have thought a bit more before he first opened his mouth.

  7. Skyler says:

    My second thought is to wonder what sort of revenge is being planned.

  8. JeffS says:

    Alas, Skyler, your second thought is all too likely.

    You do realise that this is probably the only situation that would have him use the phrase ‘Never again!’ when referring to Israel and/or Hebrews.

    Well, the only situation where he actually means it.

    Funny, from what I hear, a lot of US voters are saying the same thing.

    BWAHAhaha!! You’re RIGHT, Clive.

    They are. Oh, yes.
