An anecdote from Newsweek’s Jonathan Alter about President Obama:
When the President learned that Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley was mocking Republican opponent – and eventual victor – Scott Brown for shaking voters’ hands in the cold outside Fenway Park, he knew his presidency would soon be in trouble.
“No! No! You’re making that up!” he shouted at aide David Axelrod, grabbing him by the shirt. “That can’t be right.”
Alter, the senior editor of Newsweek, says Obama has had a series of private blow-ups since he’s been in office, and isn’t always as calm and collected as advertised. Not shocking, but interesting to read about the various blow-ups nonetheless.
