Another Schoolyard Taunt From The White House For Sen. John McCain
Posted by Michael Scherer Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 4:29 pm


Yesterday, I wrote about the rhetorical flare up between Obama aide David Axelrod and the spokeswoman for John McCain. Today, the taunting continued, this time with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs taking the lead. From today's briefing:

Q McCain said he's going to oppose everything.

MR. GIBBS: Well, yes, I find it curious that not getting your way on one thing means you've decided to take your toys and go home. I don't think -- it doesn't work well for my six-year-old; I doubt it works well in the United States Senate, because we have issues that are important for his constituents and for all of America.

Look, again, when it comes to financial reform people are going to have an opportunity to weigh in on behalf of the banks or on behalf of consumers. And I'll let their vote on that dictate which side of that ledger they feel most comfortable on.

Q Are you comparing McCain to a six-year-old?

MR. GIBBS: I'm saying that I think the notion that if you don't get what you want you're not going to cooperate on anything else is not a whole lot different than I might hear from a six-year-old.


In other words, yes, Gibbs is comparing McCain to a six-year-old. No response yet from McCain.

1. McCain is in his dotage.
Someone should take away the keys, for his own safety and the safety of others.

6. "Another school yard taunt from the WH to mccain"?
Nothing about how fucked up mccain is? "Taunting continued"? WTF.. mcain is the one who was taunting..the WH is calling him on it.

I think Lawrence O'Donnell said it best..

10. My 4 and 5 year olds are more mature then McCain. Sometimes they understand
they need to cooperate with each other in order to play and have fun. Simple concept, huh?

11. Maybe a 6 year old with poor impulse control, a vile temper
and general mean spiritedness.....

20. Gibbs is being too kind
The terrible twos sounds more like it. That's when the child uses one word more than any other: "NO!"
