In which the left and right can agree

Dana Milbank:

I’m not troubled by President Obama’s slow jam with Jimmy Fallon, who dubbed the commander in chief “preezy” during Obama’s appearance on late-night TV. No, preezy is making me queasy because his nonstop campaigning is looking, well, sleazy — and his ad suggesting that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have killed Osama bin Laden is just the beginning of it…

Obama has managed to take things to a whole new level. According to statistics compiled for a book to be published this summer, the president has already set a record for total first-term fundraisers -— 191 -— and that’s only through March 6. Measured in terms of events that benefit his reelection bid, Obama’s total (inflated in part by relaxed fundraising rules) exceeds the combined total of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter…

an “official” speech to the AFL-CIO…The audience members shouted out Obama’s “Yes, we can” slogan and chanted, “Four more years.” “I’ll take it,” offered the president, who unloaded on congressional Republicans for not spending money on infrastructure projects. “Time after time, the Republicans have gotten together and they’ve said no,” he said. “Boo!” the audience responded. “I sent them a jobs bill that would have put hundreds of thousands of construction workers back to work,” he continued. “Boo!” the audience repeated.

No doubt Mr. Milbank will be voting Democratic in November, but its nice to see that he is offended by the administration’s lack of decorum. As we said, vulgar, self-absorbed, shameless.
