Callin’ Em Out

More of this please.

“There are some folks who want to go back – who think we should return to the policies that helped to lead to this recession,” Obama said later in his comments honoring a new advanced battery factory being built by the company LG Chem. “Some made the political calculation that it’s better to obstruct than lend a hand. They said no to the tax cuts, they said no to small business loans, they said no to clean energy projects. It doesn’t stop them from coming to ribbon cuttings — but that’s OK. “

The funniest part is that Rep. Pete Hoekstra who opposed the stimulus funds was sitting in the front row of the ribbon cutting for a stimulus-funded project at the time. But, OH NOES, some one got their fee fee’s hurt.

“It demeans the office of the president. It’s disappointing. It is unpresidential,” Hoekstra said.

For a bunch of manly-men who have been running a scorched Earth campaign against Democrats and liberals for generations, they sure are sensitive.
