Proposed DNC bumper sicker: Barack Obama 'like a boss'

Forget about banning the word "bossy." A bumper sticker proposed by the Democratic Party says Barack Obama is "like a boss," Twitchy reported Friday.

"We'll only print this if enough people vote for it - add your name," Democrats said in a tweet accompanied by a photo of the proposed bumper sticker. A link in the tweet takes users to a page where they can then vote for their favorite bumper sticker.

A number of Twitter users slammed Democrats for the photo, Twitchy said. More than one person referred to Democrats as a "cult of personality" and a number of people said Democrats ought to be ashamed of themselves.

One person said bosses "are accountable" for what happens on their watch, and several Twitter users mocked Democrats using the hashtag "#LikeABoss."

"Ate a dog," one person submitted, referring to a story where Obama admitted eating dog meat as a young man in Indonesia. The story created a flurry of activity on Twitter during the 2012 general election.

"Breaks campaign promises #LikeABoss," another person said.

"Still blames Bush after 6 years #LikeABoss," added Twitter user "Lauren Luxenburg."

Mediaite said the picture was "just begging to be Photoshopped." And it was, with one person replacing the word "boss" with "dictator." Another person replaced the picture of Obama with the cartoon boss from "Dilbert." A third Photoshopped picture tweeted by the NRCC showed the word "boss" scratched out with "bystander" scrawled next to it.

The DNC doubled down, responding to the NRCC with a tweet that said, "Hey @NRCC, #dealwithit."

Democrats were also hammered by some conservative media outlets. A post at BizPac Review, for example, called the tweet "a weak attempt to present an image of a competent executive in the wake of the Veterans Affair scandal, the latest in a long line of problems for this administration."

The conservative blog Hot Air asked: "Which Democrat, at this point, wants a bumper sticker touting this guy’s administrative skills? Hello?"

It's not the first time liberals have portrayed Obama as a "boss." In February 2013, Chris Rock called the president America's "boss" and said that he and First Lady Michelle Obama are the country's parents while appearing on Capitol hill to express support for gun control.

"I am just here to support the President of the United States," Rock said. "President of the United States is our boss, but he is also... you know, the president and the first lady are kinda like the mom and the dad of the country. And when your dad says something you listen, and when you don't it will usually bite you on the a** later on. So, I’m here to support the President."
