On March 1, National Journal Washington bureau chief Ron Fournier tweeted a question: Why is that President Obama “can handle Bin laden, not Boehner? He may be POTUS, but Obama incapable of ‘a Jedi mind meld.’” He then continued, “Bin Laden didn’t compromise. Handled him pretty well.”
Last week, Fournier reported that he had “received several e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Politico characterized as a veiled threat … This can’t be what Obama wants. He must not know how thin-skinned and close-minded his staff can be to criticism.”
Perhaps Fournier is willing to let Obama off the hook because he’s all to happy to use violent rhetoric on Obama’s behalf.
