    Progressives like himself? "Let me be clear: nobody is angrier about this than I am!"

    "Progressives" make a crudely obvious Orwellian usage of that term; "progress" consists of returning to the absolute state and licking boots.

    Fuck you, Obozo and the leftoids.

    Dismisses it?

    Didn't say he was angry and was going to get to the bottom of it?

    Perhaps the most cynical and aloof leader around?

    How dare you compare what Obama says today to what he previously said about this (or any) subject!

    The great one is simply above being held to that kind of (or any) standard!
