Obama and Name-Calling


As Seth Liebsohn notes below, Obama calls those who have pointed out his false explanations regarding his Born-Alive vote liars. Obama has a penchant for pejoratives unique among modern presidential candidates. Last week he called Republicans “ignorant.” Several times during the campaign he’s implied that his opponents are racist.  Earlier he derided rural, blue collar Americans as bitter, bible-clinging, gun-toting racist xenophobes. Meanwhile, he yelps at imaginary slights directed at him: yesterday, he once again complained about Republicans questioning his patriotism.
 At this rate, if Obama’s inaugurated on January 20 his administration officially will be declared insufferable by January 21.
