No Bragging, Please

From: BHObama@whitehouse.gov

Joe,

 

No one is happier than me that the Affordable Care Act has been upheld by the Supreme court. However, I am telling everyone on the staff not to brag about our victory or trash talk our political opponents. We have to demonstrate to the American people that we are better than that.

 

That being the case, I believe I must tell you that your victory celebration was in poor form. No one wants to see the Vice President of the United States waving his shirt over his head on the steps of the Capitol yelling, “Eat it, Suckers.”

 

I’m sure you understand.

 

Regards,
BHO
