Obama on Presidency: One Needs ‘Pretty Thick Skin’


obama5President Barack Obama says he finds harsh rhetoric from political opponents “troublesome” and says such talk isn’t surprising in times of economic distress and sweeping societal changes.

He tells CBS a president has to have “pretty thick skin” and said he worries about a climate in which “the other side is demonized” by political opponents.

Obama said in “The Early Show” interview today that there is a “tone and tenor” that needs to be improved and said people in both the public and private walks of life must be able to “disagree without being disagreeable or making wild accusations about the other side.”

He was asked about verbal attacks by political opponents who have questioned his patriotism and his religion and accused him of being a socialist.

  1. Why do we continue to qouote this rasha as if he is a logical sane human being? He is as big a baal gaava as homon and his hatred for yiden and Eretz Yisrael equals Nevuchadnezzar’s.

  2. Obama is the opitimy of sheker! I think Matzav should stop reporting about him completely. He can’t even hide his condisending phoniness. Ugch!
