Obama Mocks Thin Skinned Republicans For Throwing A Tantrum Over CNBC Debate


While speaking at a DNC fundraiser, President Obama went to town and mocked the Republican candidates for throwing a fit over the questions that were asked at the CNBC debate.

The Hill reported on President Obama mocking the Republican candidates:

“They say, ‘when I talk to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, he’s going to straighten out,'” he said at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York City. “And then it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators.”

“If you can’t handle those guys, I don’t think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you,” Obama added.

President Obama was correct. The Republican candidates all talk tough on the debate stage, but they have been whining non-stop over a few difficult and silly questions from some CNBC debate moderators. If Republicans can’t handle John Harwood, how can the country trust them to deal with world leaders and daily crisis?

The secret is out. The Republican candidates are weak. They can’t take any heat at all. When Marco Rubio was asked about the fact that he is ripping off taxpayers by getting paid for a job that he isn’t showing up for, he attacked the media. When Ted Cruz was asked if the budget deal represented a rejection of his leadership style, he attacked the media. When a Republican presidential candidate gets asked a serious question that they don’t want to answer, their go-to move is to attack the “liberal media.”

Republicans love to talk tough, but their presidential candidates aren’t tough people. If the Republican Party were fit to lead, their candidate would spend less time complaining about debates, and more time coming up with concrete policies for the future of the country. The problem is that the set of policies that the GOP continues to run on have been rejected by voters for decades.

Stuck with ideas that most voters hate, and candidates who mostly unfit to be president, the Republican Party has to dream up fake enemies like the media to make themselves look tough.

President Obama knows that Republicans are weak. It is why he has been able to beat them on every issue since he became president. Nobody understands the empty bluster of the Republican Party quite like Obama. The President is calling out the empty suits on the Republican side, and he is having a field day while working hard to set the stage for another Democratic victory.
