    If he doesn't see this for what it is, even the jaws of life can't pry his head from, er, that one place.

    Can you provide a source for the Obama comments so that we can see them in full context?

    The New York Times reported no such thing. Obama did not say he was irritated.

    When are you going to stop posting misinformation, disinformation, and outright lies? You post these stories from RNC talking point websites and they are not accurate or real.

    Here is your link to the search results for Obama + irritated
    http://query.nytimes.com/search/sit...SearchSubmit&pgtype=article#/irritated/7days/

    The irritation Obama felt about the election was a word used by a reporter to describe Obama's reaction to the distance Democratic candidates are putting between themselves and Obama in the run up to the election. Here is the quote:

    Mr. Obama understood in some cases but privately resented others. “We think that was a mistake,” one aide said. Mr. Obama’s irritation became clear when he said publicly that even if he was not on the ballot, his policies were, a comment that Republicans gleefully wrapped around the necks of their Democratic opponents. So Mr. Obama held his tongue, but privately kept quizzing his political director, David Simas, about the latest information on early voting.

    Any irritation described by the New York Times was a word they used to describe a feeling Obama had several weeks ago, not "BREAKING NEWS--Obama says he's irritated" as if it were his reaction to the midterm elections.

    Hopefully you are describing Obama. Yes, he is obstinate.

    But he did not speak with the New York Times yesterday and he did not say he was "irritated" with the midterm election results.

    The entire OP is a sham. A made up piece of fiction.

    I go back to my original question:

    Can you provide a source for the Obama comments so that we can see them in full context?

    Fox News reported it and sourced the New York Times, as well.

    Yeah, well Fox News is not exactly the most sterling news organization. A search of their site for "irritated" or "irritation" or "New York Times" over the past four days does not yield any results. Can you find it for me?

    I put the link to the NY Times advanced search tool earlier in this thread and you can see there were no results. The New York Times did not report that Obama was irritated with the election results.

    If Fox News is not a credible news source, there aren't any.

    A lot of other organizations are reporting the same thing and sourcing the Times.

    It was a tweet from a Times reporter, I'm thinking.

    Yes, they are all repeating an error.

    Here is the results of searching Twitter for "Obama irritated"

    https://twitter.com/search?q=obama irritated&src=typd

    The results reference the NY Times article I posted earlier about Obama's irritation a few weeks ago with Democrats distancing themselves from him while they campaign.

    The Twitter morons just keep repeating the same error as everyone else.

    So now we want to attack people and call them morons over the use of the word "irritated"?


    How simple does one's life have to be to make such a mountain out of a molehill.

    Seriously, the extreme overreaction to this whether it is true or not is way beyond what is needed.


    It appears people are just looking to be indignant and right more so than desiring the truth.

    Indignation has become the new vogue on Baptist Board. Maybe it is a self esteem thing.
