On Being Presidential

Rhetoric has always been part of politics.  It is the nature of the beast.  But I have never heard the kind of rhetoric (if it even is "rhetorical") that I hear from this President.  These are the kinds of things politicians have always been saying behind closed doors.  "Hostage takers", attacking his own party, "I won".

There has been no President in my lifetime who is so publicly thin-skinned.  This will get worse.
