    Obama is among the most thin-skinned presidents we have had, and we see evidence of it in every possible venue imaginable, from one-on-one interviews to press conferences, from extemporaneous remarks to set speeches.

    The president is constantly complaining about what others are saying about him. He is upset at Fox News, and conservative talk radio, and Republicans, and people carrying unflattering posters of him. He gets upset when his avalanche of faulty facts are challenged, like on health care. He gets upset when he is called on his hypocrisy, on everything from breaking his promise not to hire lobbyists in the White House to broadcasting health care meetings on C-SPAN to not curtailing earmarks to failing in his promises of transparency and bipartisanship.

    In Obama's eyes, he is always the aggrieved, always the violated, always the victim of some injustice. He is America's virtuous and valorous hero, a man of unusually pure motives and uncommon wisdom, under assault by the forces of darkness.

    It is all so darn unfair.

    In a real business, it is consistent performance & measured results that matter ..... in both categories Barry fails. And he wonders why people criticize him. Don't cry Barry, I'm sure God likes you.

    Well, Clinton always had language that was consisten with an "approval-seeker" as David Gergen has observed. So did Nixon. But I hear you. a paper President is not what we need right now.

    But I have to correct you: he's my thin-skinned president, as well as yours. He's ours, unless he's voted out.

    Yeah, he needs to go talk to former President Bush (W). You can say lots of good or bad about President Bush, but he never whined like a little crybaby when people criticized him, which was continuous. Obama is an amateur.

    Well, Bush did a bit. But I don't recall Bush taking time out of lobbying for a pro basketball player and dithering on an oil catastrophe to fire a guy who hurt his feelings (which, btw, I support. You can't have a man in uniform publicly criticizing the Commander in Chief).
