President Obama compared the “gloomy” Republican Party to grumpy cat, the dour-faced feline Internet celebrity, on Friday.

Pouting in his best imitation of the cat that spawned a thousand memes, Obama was met with raucous laughter from attendees at the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum.

“Overall, we’re making enormous progress,” Obama said. “And it does make you wonder, why is it that Republican politicians are so down on America? Have you noticed that? I mean, they are gloomy. They’re like grumpy cat.”

“Everything is terrible, according to them,” the President continued. “We’re doomed. I mean, I know it’s political season, but you listen to them and they’ve constructed this entire separate reality, like the twilight zone. And according to their story, their narrative, everything was terrific back in 2008.”

  1. I just love this guy when he does stuff like this. I’m gonna miss him.

  2. Best laugh I’ve had in days. Thank you, Mr. President!

  3. I love that every GOP asshole who saw that, probably made the grumpy cat face in anger. I love this man! As I’ve said before, I am a heterosexual man, but I would cuddle with President Obama and watch the Notebook.

    Great stuff! And now the GOPers like Fox will probably take a screen capture of Obama’s grump face and use it as a backdrop. Just as a local GOP-friendly TV station (same station invited George Allen to the retirement of one of their news anchors) used a horrible one of Clinton for their news story about the Benghazi hearings, just to make her look bad.
