That is a fair description of most of the White House staffers, including Robert Gibb, the president's press secretary.

To say that this is the most thin-skinned administration in my lifetime is understatement. I well remember Harry Truman's fury at General McArthur or the N.Y. Times critic who was unkind to Margaret Truman's singing voice. But that was a manly kind of "seeing red" that one would more or less expect from a president. Not the bloodless whining of "It's not fair" we seem to be hearing more and more from the crowd at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Here's a radical thought for a bunch of cretins who seem to adore radical thoughts: Give up the endless campaign and actually start to govern! It might be fun; it certainly might be risky but it's what the American people are paying you for, President Obama. We aren't paying you to take the First Lady out for dinner to celebrate 17 years of marriage. We aren't paying you to undertake a trip to Copenhagen to try to secure the 2016 Summer Olympics for Chicago, Illinois. That trip should have been taken by the Governor of Illinois and Mayor Richard Daley, not you, and certainly not your wife who treated the IOC members as though they were her servants! What an unpleasant woman you are married to, Sir! Demeaning and demanding and altogether unsuitable to be First Lady. But then, you are unsuitable for the Presidency, incompetent and unprepared. Unable to govern and it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with race! You are still voting present!
