Obama’s nickname for typical Fox News viewer: Uncle Jim
I’ve got a hunch that THIS is going to take hold among us snarky liberals:
At a campaign stop in Virginia on Friday, President Barack Obama took a shot at Fox News in his speech to supporters.
When talking about his plan to extend the Bush tax cuts for people making less than $250,000 a year, Obama blamed the network for contributing to misperceptions of his tax policy as president. He chose “Uncle Jim” as a random example of the average Fox News viewer.
“Uncle Jim, who’s a little stubborn and been watching Fox News, he thinks somehow I raised taxes,” Obama said. “Let’s just be clear — I’ve lowered taxes since I came into office.”
