Not calling our President "Boy"

John Boehner is on TV now- saying that it is time for adult leadership from the White House. What exactly is he saying? Maybe I hear too many dog whistles. He didn't say the "B" word, but what the hell did he mean?

3. You're Right

I do get riled up from time to time. I think that on the heels of Stuart Stevens, Romney campaign strategist, saying this:

"There was a time not so long ago when the problems of the Democratic Party revolved around being too liberal and too dependent on minorities. Obama turned those problems into advantages and rode that strategy to victory. But he was a charismatic African American president with a billion dollars, no primary and a media that often felt morally conflicted about being critical. How easy is that to replicate?", I'm tired of what I see as a bigoted back beat in the banter.

I'll settle down.

11. No searching. It's a damned dogwhistle.

Boehner is saying that a 51-year-old man is NOT providing "adult" leadership.

If you're not an "adult", what are you? It's the same bullshit the Romneys peddled during the campaign to reduce POTUS' stature as a man.

More despicable crap from the GOP. They've done everything short of using the n-word to dogwhistle to people who think that this black man is beneath the office he holds.

4. Its NOT a stretch at all. Is Boehner implying that Obama is TOO young (boy) to lead

and needs to be taken by the hand and shown the ways of doing business by the surrounding adults?

5. The people had the choice, as Queen Ann told us

to chose an adult for the WH. The voters said no. I guess we prefer what - teenaged leadership? LOL. As for Orange man, he has no idea what he is saying.

8. He's trying to neutralize the "adult in the room" meme

The republicans in the house gained a reputation for acting like screaming children. He's trying to flip it.

15. The old drunk at the end of the bar always talks like that.

Shaking his fist in impotent rage, "You damn smart-ass kids, why, back in the day, I'd a whupped all yer asses!"

Then falls off the stool onto the floor.
