On "Hostage Takers"

So President Barry has compared "compared negotiating with Republicans to negotiating with hostage takers and said he only did so because of the danger that the hostage -- aka the American public -- would be harmed," according to the WaPo?

OK.  So never mind that President Barry can't bring himself to call Islamofascist terrorists "terrorists."  But now, he's calling the people elected by a goodly portion of the American electorate "hostage takers"?!?!  This guy's arrogance knows no bounds!

And I was under the impression that most Republicans want to stop the Obama tax increase for everyone, and it was President Barry who was holding the American economy and the middle class and poor he claims to represent hostage to his desire to increase taxes on the successful.

Frankly, President Barry's attitude on maintaining tax increases for the rich at the cost of the middle class and the poor reminds me a lot of the old National Lampoon cover, the one with the dog, the gun, and the legend "If You Don't Buy This Magazine, We'll Kill This Dog."

I wish I could reproduce it here, but I have only this link.

Perhaps the reason for his "compromise" is that he feared that the American people had figured this out, too.
