Proving His Point

Aside from Mark Halperin calling President Obama a dick, how did the rest of the GOP respond to the president’s news conference? By throwing a tantrum.

The Republicans were stung by Obama’s Wednesday press conference, when he unfavorably compared GOP lawmakers to his school-age daughters, who he said get their homework done on time.

In response, Republicans blocked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) request to bring legislation authorizing U.S. military action against Libya to the floor, and walked out of a planned markup of legislation implementing a free-trade agreement with South Korea.

They also mocked and scolded the president for his leadership record and his call for them to get to work.

So the entire legislative process was brought to a halt by the Republicans because the mean old president hurt their fe-fe’s?

This brings a whole new meaning to the term “No Child Left Behind.”
