More Obama: Unlike Democrats, Republicans “do what they’re told”

posted at 4:45 pm on October 22, 2009 by Allahpundit

Deep thoughts from a guy who insists that Rush Limbaugh is the pied piper of the GOP despite the fact that primary voters nominated his least favorite candidate last year, and who offers this at a moment when the biggest story raging on the right is a civil war among Republicans over Hoffman and Scozzafava. Jay Nordlinger’s already written two posts at the Corner about how insulting this is, with more, perhaps, on the way:

Barack Obama is pretty interesting when he gets in front of his money-givers — his biggest fans, I guess. In New York, he said, “Democrats are an opinionated bunch. You know, the other side, they just kinda sometimes do what they’re told. Democrats, y’all thinkin’ for yourselves.” Last year, in San Francisco, he said of Middle Americans, “It’s not surprising . . . they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them . . .”

He speaks a lot differently — a lot more respectfully — when he has one of his big national addresses: Then, we’re not red states or blue states but the United States, blah, blah, blah. Well, which is the real O? The nice, inclusive guy or the sneering, contemptuous partisan? I vote the latter: I think it’s the real O, unfortunately: the one who speaks to Democrats in New York and San Francisco.

And the Oval Office too, don’t forget. If you’re looking for a silver lining, here it is: This is as close as we’re ever likely to get to him admitting that his big problem on ObamaCare isn’t the nefarious — and powerless — GOP but those hardheaded, free-thinkin’ Blue Dogs who aren’t as eager as he is to toss another $900 billion in entitlements down the federal sinkhole. Thank heaven for small mercies. Click the image to watch.

Lefties are the best ostriches, sheep, small fish in the world. Period.

They are the looters and the moochers.

That this escapes Obama proves that he’s as dumb as a rock, or that he’s got his base fooled like no other ever could.

It’s quaint how you guys all get in line at the end of the day. Lots of bluster and flag-waving, but when it comes down to it, you’re good little

Bahhh!

Perhaps this phenomenon happens at the end of the day, because everyone is home from work. You know…those places people go to, to earn a living, and hope they have enough to live on, after paying for your sorry arse to sustain itself.

The president and his cronies don’t understand conservatives. That’s why their tactics don’t work and that is a good thing.

You are very obsessed with that action.

Johan Klaus on October 22, 2009 at 6:14 PM

That’s just simplesimon showing off some of his “independent thinking”, since, as we all know, no Leftist has ever derided non-Leftists as NASCAR fans.

venividivici on October 22, 2009 at 6:03 PM

so we’re all supposed to be NASCAR fans? That’s it? That’s his attempt at wit?

better luck next time champ.

That’s an unfortunate declaration in a thread where one may want to defend the merits of the thread title itself.

Yeah, that 9/12 teabagger-fest looked like a blast! You teabaggers might want to get on the treadmill before the next gathering – many of you didn’t look too good. You could hear the chafing of thighs as the crowd waddled around.

simplesimon on October 22, 2009 at 5:27 PM

Hey Numbnuts, many of the people in the crowds you take such delight in demeaning are the very people whose taxes has been supporting your sorry worthless ass. Some were also veterans who served to insure that you have every right under the constitution to spout the drivel you have been writing in your posts. And I would bet that even after meeting you and seeing what a sorry sack of shit you surely are, they would still step up to defend your right to continue to do so. Why would they risk their lives to defend a piece of worthless protoplasm like you? Because they are Americans and patriots, unlike you, you socialist turd. and whereas I have no problem pointing the mistake nature made by allowing your father’s sperm to survive the swim upriver, these folks would probably still treat you with some respect. So…. go back to your basement, take your meds, play with yourself or your action figures some more, and leave this thread to the adults.

yobobbyb on October 22, 2009 at 6:53 PM

I would respond to this statement by President Obama but I have not received my marching orders yet today. I am only signing in to let the collective know I am ready to hate but I am waiting for a direction.

Mormon Doc on October 22, 2009 at 6:56 PM

If they are so opinionated where are the libs who say obongo and hishandlers are attempting to pirate the US economy and diminish our positions globally?

Should be at least one right?

Sonosam on October 22, 2009 at 6:57 PM

The man is such a jackass…. I’m sorry I really want to come up with a reasoned, rational, retort to his latest comment but I can’t. For his entire presidency and campaign (same thing) he’s let his true nasty side show when he let’s his guard down. I am no longer surprised and I really am not that upset. He’s just a pure jackass, plain and simple… And he’s our president for at least 3.25 more year. God help us… ( and I’m an athiest).

Seriously, has this guys IQ gone down since he took office?

FOLKS IT’S COMING……

Political and possibly Economic Armageddon here in the U.S.

First they came for Town hall attendees, and I did not speak out—because I was not a “teabagger”;

Then they came for the Conservatives, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Conservative;

Then they came for Talk radio, and I did not speak out—because I was not a talk radio host;

Then they came for Fox News, and I did not speak out—because I was not a reporter;

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.

CEO’s, Chamber of Commerce, Hospitals, doctors, Palin, Beck, ……and on this list very shortly?

But don’t they all sound alike?

I mean how can you tell the difference b/w capitulus (I barely remeber her) and getalife? The bleating one-liners are all the same. At least some of our trolls (crr6) have interesting things to say -sometimes.

Firefly_76 on October 22, 2009 at 7:52 PM

If it sounds like Karl Marx, acts like Benito Mussolini, lies like Joe Isuzu, attracts followers eerily reminiscent of those Jim Jones attracted and stumbles like Bozo the Clown, it’s probably Barack Obama!!!!!

Jay Nordlinger is soooo right. How well put, in such short articles.

“Democrats are an opinionated bunch. You know, the other side, they just kinda sometimes do what they’re told. Democrats, y’all thinkin’ for yourselves.”

He talks down to these ‘erudite’ clowns, and they sit there like sheep, paying 15,000/plate to be insulted. It’s pure platinum. Then he calls us “sheep”, they buy it, nodding, while he uses acorn-like “thninkin” and “talkin”.

Fools, he’s got you in his pants, and he’s hitting your heads with a sledgehammer, concurrently.

Were it not so tragic it w/b comedy gold, no platinum.

That’s right, the President listens to a lot of opinionated people whose opinion is actually a WIM (What’s In it for Me).

While the rights beliefs is based on principals and beliefs based in truth and fact and guided by a higher being.
