Tommy Christopher: That Kerfuffle Over the Debate and Speech Being Scheduled at the Same Time Is a Huge Insult . . . to Obama
[Warning: this post accurately quotes Tommy Christopher of Mediaite. As a result, there is profanity, and lots of it. Reader beware.]
Tommy Christopher is mad. Why is Tommy Christopher mad? Because, he says, Speaker Boehner’s rejection of Obama’s preferred time for his jobs speech — which just so happened to coincide with the first GOP debate featuring Rick Perry — is an unprecedented insult:
Just as I thought. @Lawrence confirms with House historian that @speakerboehner ‘s insult is unprecedented. Disgusting, and a bad move.
POTUS got sandbagged by @speakerboehner , pure & simple. He’s gotta stop making gentleman’s agreements with these people. They aren’t. #p2
Christopher has not responded to my tweets asking whether stomping on the other party’s presidential debate with a speech is “unprecedented” or ungentlemanly. One gets the sense that, if Obama punched Boehner in the nose, and Boehner hit him back, Tommy Christopher would report that it is “unprecedented” for a Speaker to punch a President in the nose.
Meanwhile, Christopher spent part of his day yesterday lobbing profane insults at Adam Baldwin, and challenging him to meet in person:
@adamsbaldwin Really? You really want to go down this road? Bring your weak shit on in person, or Twitter, you’ll get pwned either way.
@adamsbaldwin Yeah, I’ll say it to your face, if you’ll show it. You know where and when the fuck to find me.
Above: Adam Baldwin asks a pointed question of Tommy Christopher.
Christopher and Baldwin met last night on the Stage Right show, where Christopher spent the evening as a wholly pwn3d subsidiary of Baldwin Enterprises.
Amid calling Baldwin a “fucking asshole” and similar epithets, Christopher criticized Baldwin for supposedly providing a one-sided view of the topic they were discussing. Which, he claimed, is characteristic of Republicans.
Meanwhile, as Christopher fills his timeline with complaints about Boehner’s discourtesy, I search in vain for a reference to the fact that Obama tried to pre-empt the GOP debate.
Who’s being one-sided again?
