No one could have predicted:
Not everybody was pleased with President Obama’s uncharacteristic line on the Today Show, spoken in the pre-school hours Tuesday morning, that he wants some “ass to kick” in the Gulf oil crisis.
Becky Quick, who co-hosts Squawk Box with lead anchor Joe Kernen and co-host Carl Quintanilla, slapped Obama for using unpresidential language in an interview he knew would be aired as children prepared for school.
“If you’re the president of the United States and you go on the Today Show which is a morning show, where you’re going to have a lot of kids sitting around watching this, I think you choose your words more carefully,” said Quick. “Using the A word when you are on the Today Show talking with Matt Lauer, yeah, that disturbs me. But I also think that this is a way of trying to prove that I’m mad, to do exactly what everybody’s been pushing me to do, and it doesn’t ring true.”
Obama has been under pressure in the media and even among his friends, notably film director Spike Lee, to air more passion when addressing the oil crisis. But Quick, who said she likes the president, said he sullied the office on the Today Show.
Oh, shut up. OMG- He’s not mad enough! OMG- he said “ass.”
It just never stops.
And I can’t be the only one wondering why everyone at CNBC has not hanged themselves after what Jon Stewart did to them recently.

Steely eyed warrior and decorated member of the 101st Chairborne, Peter Wehner, last seen upbraiding George Will for not having enough resolve to keep fighting the war in Afghanistan from a keyboard, also has a sad. “We don’t need no Clint Eastwood,” he whines.
Joe Klein says STFU, Wehner, and thanks for Hamas, you jackass.
