Has Any President Ever Been as Antagonistic and Condescending as Obama?


Listening to Obama's speech (read: pep rally) today, I thought to myself, "Why would any Republican ever want to work with this jerk?" It's no secret that in order to pass any legislation, Republican votes will be needed. But with the way Obama bad-mouths and disrespects them publicly, I can't blame them for trying to obstruct O's agenda.

I'm only 29, but I don't remember Clinton or Bush ever behaving this way. Sure, they had disagreements with the other party, but I never remember either one being as condescending to their dissenters as Obama has been. . . Maybe there's never been a more "obstructionist" Congress? I don't know. . . But Obama's leadership is lacking. I think most reasonable people will acknowledge that.

He has done nothing to bridge the divide between the parties and bring bipartisan government to our country (as he promised in his 2008 Hope & Change campaign). Quite the contrary, he's made things much worse IMO. America has never been more divided (in my lifetime) than it is now. He can continue to blame Congress, he can continue to blame Republicans, he can continue to have weekly political pep rallies with his supporters clapping and cheering on TV. . . but the buck ultimately stops with the President. And, as far as actually getting things done, he has been a failure IMO.

No, he's the most partisan politician I have ever seen.

Has any opposition party ever been as antagonistic to a president? Chicken. Egg. I suspect one's opinion of which came first depends entirely on party affiliation.

I figured that would be the answer from the other side. It's impossible to say which came first. But, like I said, the buck ultimately stops with Obama. He should lead, in spite of whatever opposition he faces.

You are obviously too young to remember the last couple of years of the Bush administration?

You guys have no sense of history.

Woodrow Wilson and FDR were enormously more socialist and condescending. Obama is practically conservative compared with them.

He's the guy who keeps poking you in the chest.
His temperament is incompatible with leadership in a Democracy.
He'd be a great dictator in some two-bit Carribean Island.
He is fundamentally a bully and he is motivated by resentment.
I suspect things end messily for him.
Karma will catch up to him.
You can't outrun karma.

No and there is no doubt that the power of the office has gone straight to his swollen head.

Right. It's not like he's dealing with choir boys. This is what it's going to be like for the foreseeable future.

Yes. And, in fact, much moreso.

Specific examples, please.

Johnson, Nixon and Reagan were every bit as antagonistic and condescending at times. Bush II was passive aggressive but pretty much the same.

Tip Oneill would disagree with you, arguing ones point during the course of work needn't be caustic. He often spoke of going toe to toe during the day with Reagan's people then having brandy and cigars on the veranda of the White House.
