Obama Praises Grayson After He Calls Female Official a "Whore"

More Hope and Change…
Let’s see… He said the Republican’s health plan was to “die quickly.” When asked about Dick Cheney he said, “I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking.” He said this about the GOP, “They probably wish that there was a Nobel Prize for fear, a Nobel prize for hatred, a Nobel prize for racism.” He compared the GOP health care plan to the Holocaust and 9-11.
And, of course, he’s calling female officials “whores.”

But, that didn’t stop Barack Obama from praising Congressman Grayson last night at a Florida fundraiser.
The Politico reported:

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) is drawing criticism from his congressional colleagues, but President Obama offered him some warm words at a Miami fundraiser for the Democratic congressional campaign committees last night.

Obama, in introducing the members of Congress in attendance, called Grayson – along with Florida Reps. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Kendrick Meek – as “outstanding members of Congress.”

Obama may regret his praise of Grayson, who is now drawing fire from members in both parties for referring to Linda Robertson, the adviser to Obama’s Fed Chief Ben Bernanke as a “K Street whore” in a radio interview last month. And he’s received national attention for equating GOP opposition to the Democrats’ health care plan to wanting sick seniors to “die quickly.”
