The reaction of several top Democrats, including the Obama re-election campaign, reminded me more of frat house than the individuals responsible for leading our country. The tweets, comments, and for sale items the Democrats offered in the wake of the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision on ObamaCare on Thursday, June 28.
Patrick Gaspard, the Executive Director of the Democratic National Committee,tweeted, "Its constitutional b-----s." Mr. Gaspard was not alone at the DNC showing a absolutely no class nor professionalism. Greg Greene, the Director of New Media for the Democratic National Committee also tweeted double expletives "Take that Mother F-----s"and "I am going to hug the s--t out of broccoli." These are alleged professionals and media savvy operatives.
Perhaps Gaspard and Greene were follwing the example of their party's leaders. Former House Speaker and current Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) stated, "politics be damned, this is what we came here to do."
The Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, famously or infamously, was caught on microphone stating to President Obama, "this is a big f-----g deal." President Obama himself, the leader of the Free World, tweeted, "Still a BFD". Immediately, in an attempt to profit from this lack of decorum, the Obama campaign began selling t-shirts that state, "Health Care Still a BFD." Nice. Again classy Mr. President.
I understand that President Obama is very popular with the 20 somethings and the teenagers. Does this mean he has to tweet like one? President Obama should use his media exposure and enormous popularity to set an example. Social behavior can make or break a young person getting their first job. Wearing a Obama shirt with profane acronyms does not instill confidence in an employer to invest in that person. Emails, texts, tweets, and Facebook messages containing profane acronyms draw a wince at minimum from most.
The coarsening of our society, the "anything goes" attitude has contributed greatly to this decline of common civility snd decorum. President Obama is accelerating this decline with his use of profanity and tolerating it from his subordinates.
President Obama and his allies in the liberal press have been pushing the mythical "War on Women". How should women feel when Obama's hand picked Executive Director calls his political opponents one of the most offensive words you can call a woman?
