Obama: They talk about me like a dog

(CNN) – Those following President Obama’s prepared remarks during a speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin Monday were thrown a bit of a curveball when it came to a description of his critics:

“Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true,” he told a crowd largely consisting of union members.

The line was a rare departure from a president who normally sticks close to the text of his speech and may forecast a more aggressive tone on the part of Obama as the midterms approach.

The address is the first of two speeches this week in which Obama will try and frame his administration’s response to the recession, less than two months ahead of midterm elections where Democratic majorities in the House and Senate are on the ropes.

CAJ note: We were discussing how Obama and the Left talk about GWB, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, the Tea Parties…or virtually anyone who disagrees with their agenda. Self-pity is so unbecoming…adolescent…unpresidential…especially when the ‘Titanic’ is sinking…Just sayin’.

Update from Althouse:

…And Meade is saying to me — out loud, in the flesh:

I’d like Obama to say exactly who said what and when. Be more specific!

Also I said: Poor Obama, he got so used to people treating him like he was so wonderful, and Meade said: “They treated him like a god, then they treated him like a dog.” The old god/dog flip!

Her readers’ comments are worthwhile reading, too.

Update 2: Legal Insurrection, Demonizer-in-Chief Upset People Demonize Him:

…This truly is another of those windows into his divisive soul.  The Demonizer-in-Chief and the class warfare expert doesn’t like being treated the way he treats others.

Too bad.

Update 3: neo-neocon has thoughts about dogs (“Do we talk about Obama like we talk about dogs”) and offered this video, H/T Armand’s Rancho Del Cielo, “…Obama a Hendrix Fan?”

neo-neocon writes, “…I think the original source has actually been located, and it’s Jimi Hendrix. And if you don’t believe me, listen up at 0:27…”
