UH-OH, SOMEONE'S GONE OFF TELEPROMPTER:

President Obama told me to stop ‘demeaning’ him, says Rep. Conyers (Molly K. Hooper, 12/08/09, The Hill)

According to the lawmaker, the president picked up the phone several weeks ago to find out why Conyers was “demeaning” him.

Obama’s decision to challenge Conyers highlights a sensitivity to criticism the president has taken on the left. Conyers’s critical remarks, many of which have been reported on the liberal-leaning Huffington Post, appear to have irritated the president, known for his calm demeanor.


The final step towards Carterism, thin skin.
