That’s what President Obama evidently said to Representative Pete DeFazio based on his voting against Obama’s legislation, including the stimulus bill, the climate change bill, and one of only two democrats to vote against the bank bailout. According to The Hill:
“DeFazio has emerged in recent months as one of the most vocal liberal critics of the Obama administration, blasting the president’s team for not getting tough enough with Wall Street. He’s also taken on his own party for failing to move left-leaning legislation through the Congress.”
According to reports, it appears this president and administration is just as, if not more, sensitive than the previous president and administration.
“Obama himself has taken notice. “Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” Obama told DeFazio during a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus, according to members afterward.”
To President Obama:
Ya brother, go ahead and keep score. You and your sidekick Emanuel. It appears Emanuel may exhibit symptoms of a classic Napolean bully, only picking on those who he knows he can beat up. A little chickenshit who only spouts off his mouth when his big brother is standing behind him.
“But Emanuel, known for his blunt manner and ability to bend members of his party to his will, did not raise his voice with the Oregon Democrat. “Rahm does not yell at me,” DeFazio said, “because he knows that I yell back.”
Well, brother, I can call you brother can’t I? You can call me brother just as you called Representative DeFazio brother. I’ve always thought all men were created equal, which means to me that I only have to call you Mr. President out of respect, if I choose. Sometimes I do, but you brought the brother thing up. You and your sidekick want to keep score do ya. Kind of like Nixon’s “Enemies List”? Did you get some kind of presidential playbook? We know what that means, you don’t say it for nothing. It means you will get your revenge. It was, pardon my french, a fucking threat. You will do something about that DeFazio dude for having the audacity to vote against your bills. Of course I don’t believe you have the guts, pardon my french again, to do shit. To that I say, go back to high school, brother, if you want to play those games. Eleven dimensional chess my ass. That’s pure bullshit.
Obama, the brother dude, is on the verge of becoming one of the tragic figures in history. Every dig of the shovel is creating a bigger hole with which he will not be able to climb out of. It appears his overall maturity level is not in keeping with the important responsibilities he has been assigned. He has proven to be a caretaker of the system, one whose only goals are to retain power and feed the corporate, MIC and Wall Street cash cow for himself, his cronies, and his interests, and lie his ass off to do it. And if anyone gets in the way, he is keeping score.
Back to the President:
Well, brother, we’re keeping score as well. So far, you’re behind. It’s only the first quarter of the game though. But you’re far behind now. You have your Obamabots, but they’re dropping like flies. You will retain a low 20 percentile just as Bush did. And the real left, and I’m talking about the real left, not those that think they are left, forget it brother. They’re gone. You aint getting them back without some kind of Hail Mary pass now. I don’t think you have it in you for a comeback. I think you’re outta there in four years man. And deservedly so.
