Since January 20, I have thought occasionally of that famous JFK putdown of Nixon: “No class.” I thought of it when President Obama knocked George W. Bush on foreign soil — to a group of Turkish students. I thought of it when he laughed his head off at a death-to-Rush joke. I thought of it when he told those New York donors that Republicans can’t think for themselves. And I’ve thought of it now that he has slimed conservative protesters as “teabaggers.”
Remember when we were told that the best thing about Barack Obama would be his temperament? I’m not sure it’s better than his policies.
