Obama says political differences end at the water's edge … from the water's edge

During President Obama’s remarks tonight following the G20 international summit in Los Cabos, Mexico, he addressed an op-ed by Romney Campaign adviser Glenn Hubbard that was placed in a German newspaper. Obama did not take too kindly to having his policies criticized overseas, saying, “I would point out that we have one president at a time and one administration at a time. And I think traditionally, the notion has been that America’s political differences end at the water’s edge.”

Former George W. Bush White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer and former Bill Clinton adviser Paul Begala, both current CNN contributors, immediately reacted to the quote on Twitter, invoking President George W. Bush, albeit in very different ways:

Of course, some astute Twitter observers noted that President Obama was talking politics while in Mexico:

And who could forget that infamous campaign stop in Germany:

More reaction from the Twitterverse:


And, of course, raaacist!!!

    Liberals are racist, black liberals have stated they voted for this socialist moron based entirely on race, and then have the ignorance and hypocrisy to call everyone else a racist.

    Here’s what is racist, the idea that a black president can’t have his policies and choices, in a Representative Republic, criticized like every white president..ie, Bush.

    Its okay though.

    Their running scared because they are beginning to realize their usual race baiting tactic, a liberal WMD, is obselete and powerless. They’ve never had to actually work to justify any liberal talking point or argument.

    The people reject liberalism and their history of racism. Your done racist lefties.
