Killing him softly with their song?

Politico finds all the really rich remarks.

Like Republicans, in the wake of "You lie!" and lynch-mob "town halls," faulting President Obama and the Dems for being "overly combative."

I MEAN, really.

Republicans — some of whom expressed open contempt for Obama by scanning their BlackBerrys or holding up copies of GOP bills during the speech — saw the president’s remarks as a Democratic call to arms that belied the president’s oft-repeated calls for bipartisanship.

"I was incredibly disappointed in the tone of his speech,” said Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).”At times, I found his tone to be overly combative and believe he behaved in a manner beneath the dignity of the office. I fear his speech tonight has made it more difficult — not less — to find common ground.

"He appeared to be angry at his critics and disappointed the American people were not buying the proposals he has been selling... If the Obama administration and congressional Democrats go down this path and push a bill on the American people they do not want, it could be the beginning of the end of the Obama presidency."

YES, IT'S A SHAME Barack Obama couldn't be high-minded and civilized like Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina, Glenn Beck and all the wingnuts conjuring up visions of swastikas and hammers and sickles.
