    Funny I don't remember you chiming in and complaining when Cheney told someone to go **** themselves. Your partisan hackery and hypocrisy is showing.

    Perhaps he should start with his EPA who are by law required to have funding and containment procedures.

    Hey, lay off or I'll tell Obama to kick your ass. LOL

    I never said politicians don't cuss, but not a formal interview for gawd's sake.

    Where's this "intellect" and "sophistication" we heard so much about from him.

    Believe the difference here is venue. Obama's remark was on camera in a live television interview. Cheney's incident was a reported personal conversation. Not similar.

    Suspect Obama made the remark to try and convey toughness, which really hasn't ever been a characteristic associated to him. Wasn't too professional or presidential, but guess we will see how it works out for him.

    Re: Obama Seeking "Ass To Kick" Over Oil Spill

    I think this column sums it up nicely.....

    Obama brings Nixonian twist to oil spill
    Examiner Editorial
    June 7, 2010



    Nothing more fully reveals the essential character of a person or group than a crisis. Thus, the ecological and political catastrophe of the Gulf oil spill has exposed a breathtaking level of incompetence, political opportunism and mendacity at the heart of the Obama administration. Documents obtained by the Center for Public Integrity make clear that the White House was told by the Coast Guard within 24 hours of the April 20 explosion on BP's Deepwater Horizon platform that the equivalent of 8,000 barrels a day could escape into the ocean. Within three days, Obama and his senior aides were warned that the spill could exceed the in environmental damage caused by the Exxon Valdez wreck in 1989.

    Despite these warnings, over the next two months Obama attended Democratic fundraisers, played golf, hosted basketball and football teams at the White House and delivered commencement speeches. Two weeks passed before he could be bothered to go to Louisiana. On April 29, Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindahl declared a state of emergency as the oil spill covered 600 square miles and was only 16 miles from the coast. Jindahl begged federal officials for permission to build a massive network of sand berms to contain damage to beaches. Washington responded a month later but permission was only granted to build 2 percent of the berms requested.

    I don't consider Obama's comment remotely worth getting one's panties in a bunch (as we're seeing here), but the partisan hypocrisy is pretty thick...

    Cheney dropped the f-bomb on the floor of the Senate.

    You seem to be of the mind that cursing in generalities is ZOMG!, yet a direct personal cursing out is perfectly acceptable, especially if it's not on video. Very interesting. But regardless of your excuses concerning where Cheney's "Eff you!" was uttered, it still came out of his mouth as a personal attack. Obama's talk of kicking asses cannot be described as a personal attack on an individual in any way.

    Aw, you don't really want to go there, do you? Let's talk about "not too professional or presidential..."

    YouTube - Bush's One-Fingered Victory Salute

    Of course, the above wasn't done in anger or directed at an individual, but I'd be interested to hear your excuses for Bush's "professional/presidential" use of the middle finger while on camera. And, you know, I don't recall any righties having palpitations when Bush issued his own personal curse attacks...

    "There's Adam Clymer, major-league asshole from The New York Times."
    - George W. Bush, before a speech during a Naperville, Ill., campaign rally

    "You ****ing son of a bitch. I saw what you wrote. We’re not going to forget this."
    - Bush to then Wall Street Journal Washington bureau chief Al Hunt in a Dallas restaurant in front of other diners, including Hunt’s wife, Judy Woodruff, and 4-year-old son

    That wasn't talking like a human being - that was a bad attempt at method acting. But look - we can't blame Obama for this - the guy's way over his head and has no idea what to do or how to do it. He listens to what people say on television like Spike Lee and then a few days later it's acted out in front of the camera's.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
