Obama: “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking”

posted at 1:33 pm on August 7, 2009 by Allahpundit

Can you blame him? You’re racists, you’re Nazis, and you’re political terrorists. Why should he listen?

Memo to The One from Peggy Noonan: “You are terrifying us.”

What the town-hall meetings represent is a feeling of rebellion, an uprising against change they do not believe in. And the Democratic response has been stunningly crude and aggressive. It has been to attack. Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the United States House of Representatives, accused the people at the meetings of “carrying swastikas and symbols like that.” (Apparently one protester held a hand-lettered sign with a “no” slash over a swastika.) But they are not Nazis, they’re Americans. Some of them looked like they’d actually spent some time fighting Nazis…

All of this is unnecessarily and unhelpfully divisive and provocative. They are mocking and menacing concerned citizens. This only makes a hot situation hotter. Is this what the president wants? It couldn’t be. But then in an odd way he sometimes seems not to have fully absorbed the awesome stature of his office. You really, if you’re president, can’t call an individual American stupid, if for no other reason than that you’re too big. You cannot allow your allies to call people protesting a health-care plan “extremists” and “right wing,” or bought, or Nazi-like, either. They’re citizens. They’re concerned. They deserve respect.

Like Ace says: It is breathtaking.

Update (Ed): Maybe Obama should listen to his Secretary of State’s words from 2003:

Obama accused his GOP critics of having “selective memory” about the economy and said, “When I walked in we had a $1.3 trillion deficit. That was gift-wrapped and waiting for me when I walked into the Oval Office.”

Barry’s the one with the selective memory. He conveniently forgets that it was he and his Democratic cronies who held the majority in the legislature for the past 2-1/2 years, and they are the ones who voted for the bloated budgets, the TARP fiasco, and all the other BS that was responsible for ballooning the deficit over the trillion dollar mark. Barry didn’t inherit this mess — he helped to create it, and now he’s making it exponentially worse. Friggin’ liar and fraud.

His ‘meetings’ are carefully controlled, by invitation only, so I wouldn’t read too much into the actual attendance. The crowd is chosen for the best Photo Ops and camera angles, so it would be difficult to know how many were actually there.

Janos Hunyadi on August 7, 2009 at 2:22 PM

Why not read into it?

If he had so many supporters, they would make sure the photo ops and the camera angles showed them all in their vast abundance.

I have always had great respect for the office of the president…even when Clinton defiled it, I felt the office was special.
And when Reagan would never step into the oval office, unless dressed appropriatly, and others did the same, it showed to America, how respectful that office is. Even Carter, or LBJ, one a passive mouse, the other a crude barbarian, the office held a aurora of dignity.
However, Obama is destroying that, it is becoming an office of “thuggery”, an office where they hold American values with disdain…life, liberty, freedom, if not defined by this president, then you are to be ignored, sit on the sidelines, you don’t count….and it is okay to attack you both verbally, and physically.

Have heart. They won’t get much further into the chapters before the backlash takes their heads off. You see, to make it all work Obama’s cult has to be FULLY committed. They are not. Most of the far left zealots are playing radical.

Do the numbers. Sales of powered-projectiles and powered-projectile-dispensers has been at unbelieveable levels since last November. They continue that way.

Most of the right who wanted to be armed already were. They are just adding to inventory. A large portion, rather a significant portion, is likely being purchased by the Independents and Centrists, many of whom are first-time buyers. My guess even some Dems and left-of-center types are buying, but not an important percentage of that group.

Now, why all that buying? Are people preparing for something? What possibly could have people so concerned that they would do something such as this, many for the first time?

Now consider: after nearly 10 months of sustained purchases, who is aroused and prepared to challenge the first four chapters of Alinsky, and who is ill-prepared to push the remaining chapters on an unwilling and aroused public?

Yoop on August 7, 2009 at 2:35 PM

I fully agree, nor was I thrilled with Rush invoking Godwin, but given that the protesters to ObamaCare have been smeared just as much, the fact that the ADL picked only one side is despicable. Either they’re uninformed, or biased. Whatever it is, it’s mind-boggling given the middle finger this administration and the Democratic Congress has been giving to Israel.

When are they going to wake the hell up?

MadisonConservative on August 7, 2009 at 2:35 PM

Does Obama believe the taxpayers at these town hall meetings created “this mess”?

If he wants those who created the mess to be quiet and get out of the way, he should send a memo to Frank, Dodd, and Waters.

jazz_piano on August 7, 2009 at 2:36 PM

Is it too much to ask to want the President to treat law abiding, taxpaying citizens, at least as well as he does lunatic foreign leaders who have vowed to kill us all?

I mean, this is the same guy who expresses a desire to fellate ol’ Dinner Jacket in Iran, while at the same time he demonizes American citizens (e.g. doctors, cops, Republicans, those against his idiotic “reform” plan).

Post-partisan? This clown is the most visciously partisan president ever, by a longshot. He makes Nixon look mild in comparison.

battleoflepanto1571 on August 7, 2009

I understand “white guilt” and I accept it’s importance in 2008, although I was not so afflicted myself. I think you may well be right that it only works once and won’t be nearly as effective in 2012. It’s an interesting theory.

As for his approval among black Americans…numerically it doesn’t matter. The simple truth is that it’s the white vote that elects presidents. No racism; just fact borne out by the percentages. That may change in coming years but it’s still true today.

lorien1973 on August 7, 2009 at 2:31 PM

That’s just it. Except for one ad to counter the DNC campaign and Steele having the phone system routed to the DNC switchboard, the GOP as a party has been out of this while the DNC is very much involved with selling the takeover of the healthcare system.

And that’s how it should be. IMO, this transcends political parties to something more important. A battle for the soul of America. How many posts on this site have been from individuals who have never been activists before but are doing so now? This isn’t a partisan fight it is a principled one. What the GOP needs to do is find the new leaders and voices (and Palin or Romney are probably not it) who can fix the mess left behind by this filthy liar and his corrupt party.

Obama just told the American taxpayer to STFU. Stupid move.

See, in HIS world, he jumps, people say “How high?” He doesn’t understand real people, because he’s never known any. I don’t think he’s capable of learning, either.

He just incensed every single one of us that has ever paid taxes…incensed us even more that is.

Don’t tell ME to STFU, Obama, I have a right to speak and to assemble, and I will. I may not have time, but I guarantee you, I will FIND the time, every opportunity, and you send your thugs after me, they will suffer when I defend myself, physically and legally. I’m not taking anymore crap from this man or his followers. Over my cold, dead body. Sincerely.

You’re probably right, although in a country of 300 million people you can always dig up a few thousand True Believers at any time and place. Interestingly, when people like that feel that they’re losing–and losing Big Time–they tend to get even more fanatically loyal and aggressive.

In the video I’ve seen, there are only a few tight shots of Obam with maybe one quick shot of a crowd cheering. My point was that he only needs relatively few people to craft a video propaganda message to disseminate.

The Precedent is also horning in on old Soviet political territory, trying to be the best friend to every Communist thug he can find. He figures that you are too busy trying to recollect your immediate satellites, so he’s out scooping up the commies farther away. The only problem is that they don’t like him and look at him like a wimp and a fool. But, he might still do the old USSR proud in Honduras. He’s working hard at it. And he is still trying to drive Eastern Europe back into Russia’s arms by dangling unilateral US defense giveaways.

Federico Fasano Mertens, editor of La Republica del Uruguay
Replying in March 2003 to a letter from Martin Silverstein, the US ambassador to Uruguay, accusing his newspaper of “totally lacking any sense of journalistic integrity” by comparing George Bush to Adolf Hitler:

The matter at hand is the comparison between Adolf Hitler and George Bush.

There are obvious differences. The first being that the war criminal, the murderer of the Jewish and Soviet peoples, won a resounding victory in the German elections, while the war criminal and murderer of the Iraqi people reached power fraudulently, in the biggest electoral scandal in US history.

From the theoretical point of view, the comparison between Bush and Hitler is correct. The scientists have described Nazism as a terrorist dictatorship of corporate expansionism. Bush, by putting himself beyond the law and invading a defenceless nation which it had not attacked in order to take over its oil wealth, the second largest on the planet, and then stating that other oil-producing nations will follow, comes close to the definition of a corporate terrorist dictatorship. Even though he may not like to admit it.

George Bush is a Nazi in his genes.

The American Burning of the Reichstag of September 11 gave George Bush the chance of a lifetime. The worst electoral victory of a US president since 1876 had turned into the best historical opportunity for a warmonger to impose a new US order on the world.

As in Hitler’s case, the first thing he did was to surround himself with a clique of con artists such as himself, men obsessed with the intimidating power of force.

Your speeches, your words show us the kind of immature, thoughtless “leader” you really are. I’ll take back leader because you never lead any business or anything in your life except a legal rag and a bunch of non-profit boards.

katy–you’re funny

The Precedent is making Benedict Arnold look like a Patriot by comparison.

Hey, now. Benedict did some good before he, uh, did some bad.

tuffy on August 7, 2009 at 2:59 PM

Benedict Arnold was a Colonel I believe.

ted c on August 7, 2009 at 2:59 PM

The one speech I am really excited to hear him deliver is the farewell speech, the one that precedes either his massive electoral defeat, his impeachment, or his jail term.

ted c on August 7, 2009 at 3:01 PM

Prayers are ascending for your family, and all of us.

OmahaConservative on August 7, 2009 at 2:38 PM

This is the key. I read a story once from a woman who had been seriously injured in a car crash. She said she could see the prayers of those around near the site ascending like golden glowing threads. Prayer is real, and we need it now. Nature’s God is still on our side; we need to be sure we are on His. You have my prayers, too!

Obama is trying to pull a Chavez on the USA and he has no clue that he can’t do it.

This is the start of a new American Civil War.

It is pitting the Statists vs. Americans.

As the economy implodes, Obama is attempting to take control of healthcare and other industries.

He has called out union thugs to take over townhalls, and possibly his people are behind some of the internet attacks on certain conservative websites.

He is mobilizing his side now.

We need to mobilize our side.

Be prepared to walk in on foot into DC on 9/12 because there is a chance the Metro will be shut down and other obstacles put up to prevent the Tea Party.

Sapwolf on August 7, 2009 at 3:03 PM

Will there be a hot air meet up at 9/12

ted c on August 7, 2009 at 3:01 PM

I don’t even want to hear a farewell speech, as it would place blame with everyone but him.

ICBM on August 7, 2009 at 3:04 PM

That was depressing to see how badly the donkeys control the story on the public air waves.

Fighton03 on August 7, 2009 at 2:42 PM

The “public air waves” just think they still control the story.

The growing crowds at the THs, the growing anger in the general population, and Obama’s tanking poll numbers give evidence that the news has gotten beyond their control. People are finding the real news other ways, and they are responding to facts, not the endless spin and propaganda.

The game has changed on the Dems and they were not ready for a failure in their supply line of BS. They ARE beginning to lose that war, and they are nearing panic mode. They could ill afford an informed public, but apparently the public has found a way to get informed. Whoops!

Yoop on August 7, 2009 at 3:05 PM

If Obama doesn’t want the creators of the mess talking, then he should sit down and be quiet, along with the unions and most of the incumbent legislators.

hawksruleva on August 7, 2009 at 3:05 PM

Hey, now. Benedict did some good before he, uh, did some bad.

tuffy on August 7, 2009 at 2:59 PM

That’s my point. At least Arnold was a great general before he sold out and became a traitor. The Precedent has never done anything of value. He’s been a treasonous, destructive leech all along.

progressoverpeace on August 7, 2009 at 3:06 PM

I am 52 years old and am just finding out how it feels when your blood starts boiling….

libertylady on August 7, 2009 at 2:26 PM

Turning 59 next week. Lived the 60′s. Never been so angry and, ashamed to say, full of hatred in my life. Calling angry, scared, and concerned fellow Americans political terrorists and paid shills for the insurance industry was the last straw. What hypocritical bullsh…

The mask is fully off Obama. He is the worst God-forsaken thing that has ever happened to this country.

It’s ironic that Lincoln gave his all to stitch this country back together only to have Obama through his idiotic holier-than-thou self-righteousness tear it apart again.

May God help us all. There is no going back and it’s not going to get any better – only worse. Much worse.

Rod on August 7, 2009 at 3:06 PM

Noonan is just one more Republican dupe who couldn’t quite make out the true character of The One until it was too late.

Cicero43 on August 7, 2009 at 1:39 PM

She still has NOT figured out Obama yet.

This the gal who knows all about Sarah Palin though.

F**k her.

I’ve always liked Ace on general principles but have never been more impressed with his insight. (chuckle!)

Last I remember, there were 70 million armed Americans and some 300 million privately owned firearms…

Pelayo on August 7, 2009 at 2:56 PM

Dat be my point!!!

Now, how many of the 70 million are likely:

Conservative ______

Independents ______

Centrists ________

Liberals ________

Radicals _______

Yoop on August 7, 2009 at 3:09 PM

Can we design a hotair flag? Great way to meet some of my fellow conspirators!

libertylady on August 7, 2009 at 3:10 PM

I’ll see you there. A lot of us are bringing our TX flags with us so we can protest together!

libertylady on August 7, 2009 at 2:54 PM

My husband is not real excited about going, but he did say he wanted to bring the Texas flag. We will all have to get together.

I consider myself an Independent Radical Conservative.

On second thought, maybe Beck was right. I think Barry does hate white people…nah, that would be racist.

Here in NH, Hodes and Sheehan are having ‘telephone town halls’–such brave souls.
