Not only would it be out-of-character for Barack Obama to do this, it would be out-of-character for an American to do this. Unlike British people, Americans as a general rule do not speak ill of third parties in their absence. The only exceptions in my experience are when the speaker knows the hearer (the second-party) extremely well, and even then, any negative commment about another is often prefaced with one or more positive comments, to ensure balance.
