It’s Historic: America’s First Passive Aggressive President

It’s Father’s Day, and I want to wish all the wonderful, wonderful father’s out there a Happy Father’s Day. Red lipsMOTUS loves you all!

Back when I was just a work-a-day mirror one of the wags around the water cooler had a way of putting even the biggest SOB in the office in perspective for us with the observation “butt I’m sure when he goes home he’s a wonderful husband and father.”

Snopes rating - Mostly true, with a few notable exceptions:

No matter what else you say about Big Guy, he is a darned good father to the Wee Wons.

Especially compared to being President.

“Passive aggression is a premeditated and covert way of communicating latent anger.”

I really don’t know where this comes from, butt people have been accusing Big Guy of exhibiting traits of passive aggression for ever now:

angry; superior, haughty, dismissive, dishonest, petulant, cocky, petty, vengeful, mocking, holier-than-thou, and full of faux-insights and dishonesty. In other words, Barack acts like a big kid pretending to be someone he’s not, everyday on the job.

Let me point out for the record that these claims are baseless, according to most of the press corpse.

Gosh, even Politico was a tad critical of the Won this week!

President Barack Obama returned Friday to a trusted tactic — satisfying his political allies by not doing something.

Rather than pushing new laws through a divided Congress to enact his agenda, Obama is relying on federal agencies to ignore, or at least not defend, laws that some of his important supporters — like Hispanic voters and the gay community — don’t like.

“If the president says we’re not going to enforce the law, there’s really nothing anyone can do about it,” University of Pennsylvania constitutional law professor Kermit Roosevelt said. “It’s clearly a political calculation.”

Yikes! Sounds like a good time to get out of town for a wedding. In the Windy City:

For the ceremony, Lady M wore sparkles and pleats, GrannyR chose a post-modern Mickey Mouse motif in summer silk. I hope that’s not some sort of passive aggressive swipe at Big Guy’s ears.

Because frankly we’ve had all the passive aggressive behavior we need around here.

If you know what I mean:

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
