Obama: Scott Brown and I kinda sorta got elected for the same reason

posted at 5:20 pm on January 20, 2010 by Allahpundit

Why, one might even call Scotty B a candidate of hope and change, no? Here’s The One’s surreal attempt to coopt Brown’s victory as being not a repudiation of his agenda but as some sort of oblique affirmation of it. Ed says he’s gotten the message now about ObamaCare after spending six months trying to beg, bribe, and bully the bill through Congress, but has he? If he’s telling himself that this election was about nothing more than free-floating “anger” at D.C. business as usual?

Let’s see if the new senator from Massachusetts can help us zero in on the causes of the “anger.”

To think that a majority party would use the ability to have the super-majority to kind of push things through is leaving a bad taste in people’s mouths, especially as you noted the fact that President Obama made [changing the way business gets done in Washington] one of his campaign themes. You know he was going to be transparent, he would post all these bills on the Internet, and you’d have three days to comment on them. None of that’s happened. So people are disappointed in that regard…

[Question:] But ultimately you say that the primary objection people have here is not so much the substance of the bill; it’s the process as much as anything else.

No. The primary [concern] for the average voter — and I’ve met hundreds of thousands of people since I’ve been running — the biggest problem that I have heard is that, number one, we can’t afford it, and, number two, they don’t like how its been done behind closed doors. They don’t like the political maneuvering now.

It’s not even a conference committee. They are bouncing it back and forth pursuant to a special maneuver. That just says to people, it’s automatically “ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.” It’s raising red flags and people don’t trust it. We can bring it back to the drawing board and do it again.

A Republican pollster found last night that fully 48 percent of Massachusetts voters said health care was the single biggest factor in their vote, with 39 percent claiming they voted for Brown specifically because of his opposition to it. Axelrod lied his ass off on one of the morning shows today when he alleged that Brown never ran an ad against ObamaCare; go watch the clip at Ben Smith’s site for proof to the contrary. In fact, see if you can guess which pundit laid out this useful thought experiment on how crucial health care was to the vote:

Let’s say we had a year-long debate in the run-up to the Iraq war. Let’s say at the end of that debate, 33 percent of Americans thought it was a good idea to invade Iraq, 46 percent thought it was a bad idea and the rest weren’t sure. Then let’s say that there were a bunch of elections in places like New Jersey and Virginia in the middle of this debate and George Bush’s party lost them all badly. Let’s say at the end of this debate there was a senate race in Wyoming in which a Democratic candidate made preventing the war a central plank in his campaign. Let’s say Bush went out to Wyoming and told voters they had to support the Republican to save the Iraq invasion. And let’s say the Democrat still went on to win that Wyoming Senate seat by more than 5 percentage points.

Would you have advised George Bush under these circumstances to go ahead and invade Iraq? Would you have advised him to call a special lame duck session of Congress to push through a war resolution before the new senator could be seated? Would you have advised him to invent some legislative trick so he could still have his invasion? Or would you have said, George, I know you really want to invade Iraq. I know you think an invasion will do a lot of good for the world. But the American people are pretty clear about this issue. Maybe you should show a little doubt. Maybe you ought to listen and give this whole thing a second look.

Surprising answer here. If the big lesson gleaned by The One yesterday was that voters are just unhappy in general, then I guess he’ll need more than one lesson. And he’ll get one. Click the image to watch.

This really isn’t surprising. In his world view, he does nothing wrong – ever – so of course it has to be a continuation of Booooosh’s mishaps. He’s oblivious because the voice in his head cooing over and over, “I love you Barack! You’re the best!” The guy graded himself for the first year with a “solid B-plus”! Would any of us have had the nerve to do that if we had led the country for one year and things were this screwed up?

Fail!

Scott Brown got elected because you are the worst President in history, and your elitist candidate that ran against him was an icon of horrible politics.

Now you on the other hand were elected because you ran against a candidate that that was also an icon but of a horrible campaign. And…….because you a Black.

Hey Barry – I didn’t even need to change one word of one of my favorite songs of all time. I think your Massachusetts independents were singing this all the way to the ballot box:

I’m looking through you, where did you go
I thought I knew you, what did I know
You don’t look different, but you have changed
I’m looking through you, you’re not the same

Your lips are moving, I cannot hear
Your voice is soothing, but the words aren’t clear
You don’t sound different, I’ve learned the game.
I’m looking through you, you’re not the same

Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight

You’re thinking of me, the same old way
You were above me, but not today
The only difference is you’re down there
I’m looking through you, and you’re nowhere

Why, tell me why, did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight

I’m looking through you, where did you go
I thought I knew you, what did I know
You don’t look different, but you have changed
I’m looking through you, you’re not the same

Yeah! Oh baby you changed!
Aah! I’m looking through you!
Yeah! I’m looking through you!
You changed, you changed, you changed!

As a Wyoming native, I have to say that our Dems are more conservative than most others’ Republicans. And being a red state hasn’t kept us from electing Dem governors. We believe in the men and women of principle.

And don’t be talking about my home, Barry.

This one actually goes in the “facepalm” file!

He believes that Scott Brown’s election is all about him too…. well, okay, it is, but not for the reason his deluded little mind has settled on!

Seriously, I’ve got to meet this puppet master one of these days…. just think of the things I could have talked my husband into!

Okay, I watched. When someone tries to coopt someone elses victory, its pretty pathetic. This is like a buddy saying, “You only hooked up with that girl cuz I was there, otherwise you wouldn’t have had a chance.” This such counterfactual bullshite by the top cheeze makes me declare

Based on this interview, it looks like Obama still doesn’t get it. I’m guessing he won’t until he’s shown out the door. No, I take that back. Jimmy Carter was shown the door after 1 term and 30 years later he still doesn’t get it, either.

ProfessorMiao on January 20, 2010 at 6:02 PM

DO NOT be fooled.This is Obama laying the groundwork for a potential “Snowe-ing” of Senator 41.

Sans a filibuster-proof majority, the Dems have always spent serious effort wooing the Maine twins and more recently Voinovich. This is nothing less than Obama seeing how much closer Brown is to Nelson than he his to Snowe and putting his beer-summit face on for the newest RINO.

Luckily Brown will be too flush with his win to sign on Obamacare so soon. But we can probably expect Obama to try to hustle Brown ASAP.

I’d like to think that’s true. I think a chapped butt would do the man some good. But I suspect that it merely feeds his preconceived notions about how contemptible (mainly white) middle class Americans are. I’m beginning to think that nothing can penetrate his superiority complex.

and I’ve met hundreds of thousands of people since I’ve been running — the biggest problem that I have heard is that

You lie. Assuming 30 seconds per “meeting”, to have met with the 200,000 (minimum since you used the plural) people you claim would require 208 solid eight-hour days. No golfing, no cigarettes, no lunch breaks. Just 30 seconds of handshaking, introductions, and asking them what’s most important. No hugs, no photos, and no moving. All of those would increase the time spent. And, FWIW, 208 days would be almost an entire government-employee’s year of “meeting” people, and a few hours more than a senator’s. Again, you lie.

Ordinary American on January 20, 2010 at 6:10 PM

I think Obama is right, I was opining the same thing to coworkers today. Americans loathe their Federal Government. A candidate who appears to be from the outside is very appealing. McCain and Coakley were machine. Obama and Brown were fresh.

SlimyBill on January 20, 2010 at 6:12 PM

Obama’s words here, they give us the signs of a pathological tyrant. Tyrants never believe that their mistakes are theirs. It’s always someone else’s fault.

Any bad news that comes their way, well, it only appears to be bad. It’s really good news. The rest of just can’t see that yet.

For the last year, I thought Obama to be just another arrogant, elite socialist type lib, with a deep hatred for this country.

Today I see him as much worse. He is not just a threat to liberty, but a clear and present danger to it.

I just hope we can slow all this down. Through the ballot box. Failing that, we are in for some scary, dark days.

[Obama:] No. The primary [concern] for the average voter … blah blah blah

And then ends up saying:

they don’t like how its been done behind closed doors. They don’t like the political maneuvering now.

Didn’t he just say that it’s not the process that people are hating, but the process?

The Narcissist in Chief has made every issue and non issue all about him, that makes the unprecedented rebuke in the bluest of the blue states about him too.

Massachusetts is the new Obama state of denial.

He really does not get it. The dude is either obtuse or such a narcissist he is incapable of grasping his (epic) failure so far as POTUS.

I imagine for a guy that has never heard the word NO this is too big a repudiation to comprehend, let alone accept.

He is a lame duck, a scary caretaker of the office until 2012.

His major policy plays are over and the sooner he accepts this the better for him and us.

I suggest he spend more time working with inner city youth, visit Arlington National Cemetery weekly, attend the opening of buildings and bridges. He should stick to ceremonies until his time is over.

If he is lucky and plays it smart he might escape in 12 with a 40% approval.

Barack Obama is to Health Care, and a number of other things, what Joe Isuzu was to cars.

Joe Isuzu
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Joe Isuzu was a fictional spokesman used in a series of television advertisements for Isuzu. Created by the Madison Avenue ad agency Della Femina, Travisano, and Partners, the segments aired on American television in 1986-90, reaching their zenith in 1987 after the character was featured during Super Bowl XXI. Played by actor David Leisure, Joe Isuzu was a pathological liar who made outrageous and overinflated claims about Isuzu’s cars. (One commercial even cast him as the Boy who Cried Wolf.) The campaign was resurrected briefly in 1999 and continued until 2001 to promote several cars such as the Isuzu Axiom. Famous quotes:

* “You have my word on it.”
* “If I’m lying, may lightning hit my mother.” (“Good luck, Mom!” appears on screen.)
* “It has more seats than the Astrodome!”
* “Hi, I’m Joe Isuzu and I used my new Isuzu pickup truck to carry a 2,000 pound cheeseburger.”
* “The Isuzu Impulse: faster than a speeding—[catches a bullet in his teeth]—well, you know.”

The character became a fixture in American popular culture.

Here’s The One’s surreal attempt to coopt Brown’s victory as being not a repudiation of his agenda but as some sort of oblique affirmation of it.

Only somebody as out-of-touch with reality as the filthy lying coward in the White House could possibly take the leap that Scott Brown winning he seat held as a birthright by the Kennedy family was all about him- a street thug from Chicago.

Face it folks, some of you voted for a lemon last year. I’ll try not to hold it against you in the future.

Wow!! Stepalottapuss sure has a great poker face. Just sat there and nodded.

I would have rolled on the floor, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I’m guessing he was wearing an I-Pod at the time and didn’t hear the answer. :-0

This is the beginning of Obama’s populist make over. As if changing or trying to change his image is going to work. It’s like having Madonna for president.

The fact that they made it public is pathetic in itself.

BigWyo on January 20, 2010 at 6:29 PM

It’s what you do when people aren’t looking that counts. This speaks volumes about his character. I never liked the guy, but this is truly lacking in honor.

Sorry, no. Basic math with common knowledge. Isn’t it? Anyway, we can discuss the impossible physics of his statement or his compulsion to continually make those types of exaggerated claims, but ad hominems against one party in a discussion don’t further a conversation. Which of the two valid topics would you rather address?

Sorry, no. Basic math with common knowledge. Isn’t it?

I would assume he meant crowds at rallies and not specific introductions.

WitchDoctor on January 20, 2010 at 6:56 PM

Y’all realize that he was blaming Bush for Coakley’s defeat, don’t you?

Is that pitiful or what?

29Victor on January 20, 2010 at 6:57 PM

Me thinks he can afford to be a little more generous and a lot more discreet.

anniekc on January 20, 2010 at 6:24 PM

If he were discreet, he would deprive us the opportunity to stand in awe of his magnificence. He’s much too considerate for that.

Cybergeezer on January 20, 2010 at 7:02 PM

Funny… He addresses this issue immediately and in depth, because he feels it deep down in his undies. But on the real important to get on top of stuff, like the Fort Hood murders, and the panty bomber… he waits and hopes it will just go away, because it means so little to him.

Disgusting piece of crap is no leader, and is not my President by any means.

It stands to reason that The Unprecedented would try to buddy up with Scott Brown: he’s the last surviving Kennedy brother, remember? Gotta keep tabs on what the interloper is doing with the “Kennedy Seat”!

The bumper sticker on my pickup says this for all to see.
I have shatter proof windows too. If they try to key it, they get shocked; Break in, and get greeted by my pet rattle snakes.

BigWyo on January 20, 2010 at 7:16 PM

The guy is a pathetic, uninspiring slug. How did he charm or “charismatize” anybody? He looks and sounds like a constipated mortician.

And if people can’t or don’t see though the breathtaking sham of his so-called realization that people are angry or his claim that he and Scott Brown are both symbols of the same kind of voter anger — then we deserve what we get.
