According to The New York Times, on Saturday evening the President of the United States used a thoroughly disgusting gay-baiting slur to refer to people that previous presidents might have called "My Fellow Americans". Speaking with congressional Democrats, our situationally unaware, amateur-night chief executive asked,
"Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care?"
Call me an old-timer, but I can remember when U.S. Presidents had class. They might have called their political opponents any number of things in private, but you would not hear of them demeaning American citizens.
It is a measure of how low-rent Professional Democrats have become that The New York Times reports this as though sexual slurs were not a new low in presidential discourse... merely another term that 'progessives' use every day to refer to their subhuman opponents.
Did President Obama intend to be disgusting in using that term? I hope so, because I sure am disgusted.
