Presidential personality -I can't imagine President Obama yelling
Of all the journalists, both friendly and hostile, who have written about President Obama, have any of them stated he ever yelled at somebody or something? (Michelle I can see yelling, but not Obama.)
I'm a yeller and I descend from a long line of yellers, so his temperament fascinates me.
You'd be wrong.
I can definitely see him yelling, in a fairly controlled way.
I wouldn't want to cross him, that's for sure. Yelling or not, he'd slice and dice you for a fool before you had a chance to catch your breath.
He was a college instructor and community activist; it would take willful ignorance to send him over the edge. He surrounds himself with his team; you won't see him lose his shit.
Yelling like an out of control Rosie O'donnell? no. Sternly raising his voice to get his point across, yes.

You're old, too, aren't you, OP? Because there is something rather rabid about your post.
You must be 14 OP
R6, I have had the worst day in a long time. You have made it ever so much better. Thank you.
I envision exactly what R4 says. In public he seems unflappable.
There's something rather rancid about your pussy, R6.
Trust me, he WILL cut a bitch!
R10, while it is not surprising you lack the knowledge to get the joke, it is understandable that a rabid Old Yeller such as you would respond with a frothy snarl.
And to think I withheld commenting on your general illiteracy and inability to follow basic English usage. Tsk.
Such a mongrel.

I thought this comment was going to end differently.
I'd put college instructors and community activists high on the list of people who yell.
As a child were you beaten often or daily r5?
he's an introvert, they more often than not break rules out of bitterness or simply withdraw.
The yellers like OP (and myself) act otherwise.
You got me, R12. Good one.
I can't imagine Obama yelling, either. But I'd take his thoughtful, slow but emphatic argument over GW Bush's insolent put-downs or Jimmy Carter's moralizing superiority any day.
