This Forum has commented frequently on how Republicans are highly offended because they are being criticized by President Obama. They claim he is not being nice to them, and so they will not do their jobs, pass legislation that is for the good of the country, or even pass legislation that they support.
But to any impartial observer the problem here has been the years of uncivil commentary by Conservatives about Mr. Obama. And just to drive home that point, here is what noted Media Grabber Ann Coulter said recently. From Dylan Byers at Politico.
The with Fox News host Sean Hannity depicted her saying "screw you" to the media, but Coulter now that it was intended for both President Obama and "and anyone else who says that those of us who don’t support ridiculous gun laws ‘aren’t serious about saving children’ (or whatever Obama said to that effect)."
And yes, we are all grateful that Ms. Coulter did not use the phrase she probably wanted to use. So as thanks we will not use that phrase against Ms. Coulter.
