Has there ever been a President as condescending as Obama?

March 6th, 2012

Just a few examples:

“I won.”

Let me be clear

bitter clingers

Do a search for “Obama condescension” and you’ll find 1, sildenafil generic 660,000 results.

More than anything else, it’s the condescension that annoys me.

We’re adult citizens of the United States of America and you work for us Mr. President. Show some respect.

    Surely, you’re not serious. Him? C’mon.. Really? Never happen.

    At least for the most part he uses real words that are already found in an English dictionary.

    I’d rather use the word “narcissism”, which is also a mental illness.
    While most poiticians need a big ego, Obama’s ego and narcissism dwarfs just about everybody. Everything has to be Obama, in Obama’s eyes. He has to take credit for everything, except bad things, he invites himself to places where he is not wanted.
    I think the movie “The Dictator” was written with Obama in mind.

    Bringing in Google search results count? Really? Okay, I’ll bite.

    “Obama condescension” – 1.66 million results

    Let’s try some other Presidents.

    “Reagan condescension” – 8.65 million results
    “Clinton condescension” – 10.4 million results
    “Bush condescension” – 13.2 million results

    And just to be thorough.
    “Bush Sr. condescension” – 80.6 million results
    “Bush Jr. condescension” – 18.2 million results

    Oh, and let’s look at some of the GOP forerunners who aren’t even President yet.

    “Romney condescension” – 5.12 million results
    “Santorum condescension” – 2.24 million results

    Your ball.

    Damn, turns out Google thinks he’s the LEAST condescending.

    Even Lincoln condescension nets: 10,700,000

    You’re right… There’s nothing worse than an “Uppity [Black person]”. Don’t these people know their place?

    [This is intended as sarcasm, just so you understand. From what you write, it would not be unreasonable to assume you have comprehension “issues.”]

    Hmmmm, now you’re being condescending.

    One moment Obama is weak and ineffectual, the next he’s overbearing and condescending.

    Have you ever heard Walker speak, Fitzgerald speak? Ever attended a Republican-led public hearing?

    Google results for two words unlikely to appear next to each other? Useless. “Obama isn’t condescending like Bush” would produce a hit, right?

    “Obama condescension” with quotes gives “about 2,580 results”, all from righty blogs. You’re parroting something you heard last year.

    Me? I found a new way to be condescending. You know – that’s when you talk down to people.
