President Obama teed off on the Republican presidential candidates, the Washington Times reported. Twas unpresidential, to be sure.
It also was impolitic. Mocking Republicans a year before the election gains him and his party nothing, whilst showing the shortcomings of his own presidency. The quote:
“They say, ‘When I talk to Putin, he’s going to straighten out’ … And then it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators.”Oh yes, way to remind the American people how well you handle Putin, and the rest of foreign policy.
