Triple Whammy: Obama Makes Straw Man Argument, Rips Fox News And Jokes About His Coolness in One Breath

President Obama is fond of taking potshots at Fox News for its sin of criticizing his White House. He's very fond of constructing straw man arguments that cannot withstand the winds of his lofty rhetoric. Tuesday, at a panel about poverty at Georgetown University, he pulled off the rare feat of doing them simultaneously.

"I think the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges, leeches, don't want to work, are lazy, are undeserving, got traction," he said. "And look, it's still being propagated. I mean, I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant menu. They will find, like folks who make me mad. I don't know where they find them."

Notice Obama also managed to work in a self-aggrandizing joke about how cool and collected he is all the time. It was a veritable all-you-can-eat buffet of Obama's most non-charming speech habits.
