The Uniter Expands His Enemies List

Remember all the hokey talk about how the Moonbat Messiah would unite us? Chairman Zero doesn’t:

“When you’re on their side, it’s all OK, but if you’re not, they rain hell down on you,” said R. Bruce Josten, executive vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, bemoaning the administration’s bellicose response to differing opinions on health care and financial regulatory reform proposals. …

The chamber, which was an early supporter of Mr. Obama’s health care reform plans, views Mr. Obama as having betrayed his promise to reach out to those who think differently, in an honest attempt to reach compromises.

“The administration ‘invites’ folks to sit at their table, and then eviscerates them if they simply disagree with the conclusion at the end of the dialogue,” Mr. Josten said.

The Anointed One’s brittle hostility to anyone not drinking his Kool-Aid gives some a sense of déjà vu:

A senior Republican lawmaker on Wednesday raised concern that the White House was creating an “enemies list” in much the same way that the Nixon White House did.

“If the president and his top aides treat people with different views as enemies instead of listening to what they have to say, they’re likely to end up with a narrow view and a feeling that the whole world is out to get them,” said Sen. Lamar Alexander, Tennessee Republican.

That can happen with narcissistic megalomaniacs who are confronted by the reality that not everyone regards them as the cat’s meow.

Obamao’s petulant bullying is a factor delaying economic recovery.

“The administration is playing hardball,” a former Wall Street lobbyist said. “No one wants to be the one that puts their head up to get it knocked off by the White House. Just ask the Chamber of Commerce or the health insurance industry how well that strategy worked for them.”

But privately, banks, credit card companies and other financial-sector entities have expressed mounting frustration at what they say are unfair shots by the White House – accusing the president of exaggerating Wall Street’s failings for political gain. …

The lobbyist argued that discrediting Wall Street is “self-defeating” because it is “delaying the repair of trust in an industry essential to economic recovery, growth and job creation.”

On the brighter side, Dear Reader’s attempts to demonize Fox News are sending ratings through the stratosphere. The public is well aware that having skeevy Administration goons like David Axelrod single out FNC as “not a news organization” means that it is the one news organization whose legitimacy is beyond question.
