Classy: Obama pimps ‘BFD’ t-shirt on Twitter

http://twitter.com/#!/BarackObama/status/183348313444192257

Yep, the president of the United States took to his Twitter account last night to promote $30 Obamacare t-shirts with the initials “BFD.”

Some wondered:

@BarackObama what is a BFD?

It’s a reference, of course, to when Vice President Joe Biden hailed the costly, constitutionally suspect legislation as a “Big F**king Deal.”

Flashback:

Twitter reaction was not altogether positive:

@BarackObama I respect my President, but I don't love that he's using "BFD" on a t-shirt.

Not setting the best example of appropriate social media use, Mr President. MT @BarackObama: Health reform—still a BFD: http://t.co/zPclP9DL

So, @BarackObama the BFD tee doesn't come with my mandated purchase? Some BS. NOBAMA2012
