Conservatives push back against thin-skinned POTUS: #ThingsThatOffendObama

In a pre-taped interview with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, the touchy-touchy commander-in-chief took “offense” at criticism of his administration’s ever-evolving statements on the Benghazi terror attack. Via Red Alert Politics:

President Barack Obama said this morning that he’s ‘offended’ by “suggestions” that the White House purposely kept Americans in the dark about the true nature of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya and the events leading up to it.

The President made the comment as part of a pre-taped interview for hit MSNBC show “Morning Joe” with the show’s namesake former Congressman Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.) and co-host Mika Brzezinski.

The President declined to name names with regards to who he was specifically upset with. However, he presumably meant Republicans and the Republican presidential ticket based on his campaign’s continued efforts to portray the GOP as unnecessarily politicizing the issue and his reference to the second presidential debate, in which he and Romney got a memorably heated discussion about the attack.

“But I do take offense, as I’ve said during one of the debates, that there’s some suggestion, you know, that we, in any way haven’t tried to make sure that the American people knew as information was coming in what we believed happened.”

Conservatives on Twitter took offense at Obama’s offense at being called out for the teetering Jenga tower of lies and deceptions regarding the bloody Benghazi siege. The hashtag #ThingsThatOffendObama caught fire Monday night — causing more White House offense, no doubt.

      Guys, don’t give this one a “thumbs down.” If I’m not is taken, it’s a reference to Obama playing armchair police chief with the Boston police department after that one guy arrested a black guy breaking in to his own house. Remember the “beer summit”?

  • Chase C.

    Insults to Obama’s wife are just classless. I love the jokes about his pathetic record but when you make it about a mans family and then get offended when liberals do to the same to Romney and Ryan’s wife you are just as low as them.

    • Jennifer JaboHaskins

      No way. Be a man. People’s football teams, their politics, and their ugly wives are fair game. Turnabout is fair play. Too bad Romeny and Ryan have good looking wives who aren’t disappointed in America.

    • Hiraghm

      Nonsense. Insults to Michelle Obama are *not* simply to “Obama’s wife” but to the “First Lady”. She has an official, royal office, she’s trying to use it to mess up the country, she’s a public figure in her own right, and therefore fair game.

      She’s not staying home baking cookies in the kitchen, after all. She’s flying around the world at taxpayer expense pushing both his and her own agendas.

      Obama’s children I would agree should be off-limits… until they start using their position to become celebrities and attempting to affect public opinion.

    • Rachel Henry

      If someone is ugly they are just ugly… Nothing wrong with pointing it out when people have tried to lie and say how beautiful this woman is.

    • Rachel Henry

      If the media would have never raised the judgement of her looks I gaurantee there would be no counter comments… But hey teu raised it
