Enemies List: Gibbsy Dismisses Cops' Gatesgate Complaints By Stating Fraternal Order of Police Endorsed McCain

A habit of liberalism which has reached his apotheosis under Obama: Only count as legitimate the criticisms of your political correlegionists; dismiss all other criticisms as "partisan." (And never admit, of course, that liberals' support of Obama is just as partisan as conservatives' opposition; no, in LiberalLand, only the other side can be partisan and have agenda-driven opinions.)

Cops? Screw them. They voted for McCain.

I was thinking this wasn't such a big story, or a particularly harmful story, for Obama, but Team Messiah is doing its level best to prove me wrong.

Earlier in the day, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed a suggestion that the backlash from police groups could be distressing to the White House, given that Obama has enjoyed a positive relationship with the law enforcement community.

"I think the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed McCain," Gibbs fired back, referring to Obama's Republican opponent in the 2008 election. "If I'm not mistaken."

When a reporter pointed out that Obama had won the support of the Policemen's Benevolent Association, Gibbs conceded: "We got some."

In Cambridge, however, even the more measured speakers were sharply critical of the president's comments this week.

Alan J. McDonald, an attorney for the police unions, stopped short of calling for an apology, but said he was hopeful both the president and Patrick would issue one.

"We're not demanding an apology from anyone…hopeful that upon reflection, they will realize that their statements were misguided and will take the appropriate action in the form of an apology," McDonald said.

"In our view there was nothing stupid about what happened," he continued. "The president suggested that somehow there was a link between problems between people of color and law enforcement…it wasn't true in this case. There is no evidence that the arrest was race-based."

The Messiah and his Mewling Minions really don't react well to criticism, do they?

As I said repeatedly during the campaign: Obama only appears "cool" and "even-tempered" because he's never challenged. His "vetting" by the media consisted chiefly of juicy-mouthed nether-kissing.

It's not difficult to appear "cool" under those circumstances. Anyone who freaks out and goes to pieces because he's being praised too much is a lunatic.

The MSM's "hard questions," mostly along the lines of 'What makes you so awesome?," were not likely to produce a bad reaction.

The few occasions Obama was challenged during the campaign -- his testy taking-ball-going-home end to that press conference in Chicago after a few pointed questions, for example -- demonstrated that he in fact wasn't cool or even-tempered at all, but thin-skinned, self-pitying, entitled, and hot-headed.

But here's the real Obama, possessed not of Chris Buckley's imagined "first-class temperament" but rather a first-class egotism and first-class sense of entitlement. All criticism of The One is, by definition, illegitimate and motivated by bad intent.

"Shut up," he explained.
