If you listen to President Obama these days, you are likely to hear him attack and deride people who oppose or raise questions about his policies.
Just today, for example, he blasted critics of his healthcare reform policies:
“I don’t find Canadians particularly scary, but I guess some of the opponents of reform think that they make a good bogeyman.”
Also today, he blasted critics of his policy on Honduras:
“The same critics who say that the United States has not intervened enough in Honduras are the same people who say that we’re always intervening and the Yankees need to get out of Latin America. You can’t have it both ways.”
