Update 2: ‘He (Obama) needs to take a valium…

Update 2: Oh no you didn’t!

…”He needs to take a Valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans,” Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., told reporters. “He’s pretty thin-skinned….

…The president walked into a remarkably contentious 80-minute session Tuesday in which GOP senators accused him of duplicity, audacity and unbending partisanship. Lawmakers said the testy exchange left legislative logjams intact, and one GOP leader said nothing is likely to change before the November elections….

More from FOX:

…bipartisanship was not what Sen. Bob Corker, R-TN, had on his mind. For months, he has railed against what he called White House interference in bipartisan financial regulatory reform negotiations, in which the senator was deeply involved. And Tuesday, he said he let Obama have it.

“I told him I thought there was a degree of audacity in him even showing up today after what happened with financial regulation,” Corker recounted to reporters after the meeting. “I asked him how he was able to reconcile that duplicity, coming in today to see us.”…

Awww poor Obama says he feels ‘pressure from his left’, cry me a river! Americans feel pressure from the EVER-EXPANDING DEBT HE IS PILING ONTO US…

…Sen. Sam Brownback, R-KS, said Republicans conveyed to Obama that they feel that everything, especially health care and financial reform, has been “as far left as it can be,” to which the President noted that he was experiencing an inordinate amount of “pressure from my left.” Brownback said the President repeated this sentiment “several times.”…

Thin skin:

…One senator even took notes, showing them to reporters afterward. “I just kept writing ‘thin skin, thin skin, thin skin’,” Sen. Pat Roberts, R-KS, noted to reporters, saying Obama got “a warm reception at first.”

Roberts said Obama was not able to take constructive criticism, adding that when Obama gets upset he “tends to lecture.”…

BWAAAAHAAAAA!!!!!!! Could he possibly be more out of touch with the American people?! BWAAAAHAAA!!

Politico:

…Republicans came away believing Obama wants to do too much, too fast. And Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) said Obama was rather thin-skinned about criticism. “The more he talked the more he got upset,” Roberts said.

“He wants do immigration, climate change – all before we go home – he’s a very ambitious guy,” said Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.). “I think he needs to step back and see where the country is at.”…
