    I read on the site, “Crooks and Liars” a little while ago that one GOP/TPer has gone on Fox News to say that Pres. Obama showed “no class” in his Iran presser. I find that to be a highly ironic comment since the GOP/TPers are collectively totally devoid of class. I’m happy that PBO used his presser to publicly demean Garrett for his stupid question. He was trying to imply that PBO isn’t concerned about the American citizens Iran is holding hostage. He, like so many of the president’s other detractors, don’t know sh*t about what the president thinks. They’re not party to what he does out of public view. They think they’re slick, but we know that they don’t care what he thinks and are trying to shame and belittle him. He knows he’s smarter than they are, we know he’s smarter, but most importantly, they know he’s smarter than they are, and they can’t deal with it. My only regret is that he didn’t tell them off earlier in his administration. He was just biding his time until the end of his second term to unload on their sorry asses. Good job, PBO, good job!

    Here’s the Maddow segment:

    Obama eager to engage conservative critics on Iran deal
    Rachel Maddow reviews past conservative freak-outs over U.S. diplomatic outreach to international rivals and notes that President Obama, at his press conference today, was so insistent on addressing critics that he brought up the questions himself

    Obama plays devil’s advocate … to himself

    President Obama hosted a White House press conference this afternoon, the bulk of which dealt with the details of the international nuclear agreement with Iran. Reporters pressed Obama on several angles, and the president, to his credit, didn’t dodge anything – he offered detailed responses and defenses to every inquiry.

    And then Obama did something I’ve never seen him – or really, any president – do. From the transcript:
    “All right. Have we exhausted Iran questions here? I think there’s a helicopter that’s coming. But I really am enjoying this Iran debate.

    “Topics that may not have been touched upon, criticisms that you’ve heard that I did not answer…. I just want to make sure that we’re not leaving any stones un-turned here.”
    It’s really worth watching the video of this portion, because I’ve never seen anything like it at a White House press conference. In effect, Obama wanted to hear every possible criticism – from Republicans, from Israeli officials, from the media, anyone – of the Iran deal so that he could explain, in detail, why those criticisms are wrong.

    Ordinarily, in response to a breakthrough diplomatic achievement like this one, you might expect to see a president sidestep criticisms and focus on praise and international support, all in the hopes of building public and congressional support. It’s typical, and arguably natural, for a president to downplay the role of naysayers.

    Why didn’t you all tell me that the President straight up clowned the WHPC yesterday?

    Taking out his OWN LIST of questions he THOUGHT that they would ask….knowing damn well that they aren’t smart enough to even think of the questions.

    That only added to the butt hurt….

    He had NFTG and could care less…
