Obama: I will continue to fight for you by trying to pass a bill you despise

posted at 3:41 pm on January 22, 2010 by Allahpundit

Tragicomedy from today’s “permanent campaign” stop in Ohio: “This is not about me!” saith The One, before launching into the salute to his own political fortitude that you’re about to see. Which, in fairness, is all he has left. No one likes the bill, it’s killing him with independents, but he’s invested too much political capital in it to end up with absolutely nothing. So he’ll end up with a hugely pared-down bill, a.k.a. almost absolutely nothing, and then tout it as some grand accomplishment that he’ll build on later even though everyone knows that he won’t. Remember, the goal, practically from day one, was simply to pass something, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get. “Something.”

Opposition to O-Care is back up to 58 percent in today’s Rasmussen tracker, incidentally, which ties the mark for the highest disapproval rating yet. Stay tuned for the numbers next week after the Dems launch their bold new plan to nuke Scott Brown’s vote by going with reconciliation. Click the image to watch.

Memo to Obama: You are the change we were not hoping for.

How is 0bama “fighting for jobs” when everything he’s done to date has destroyed jobs? And….just who is he fighting? Wall Street? Banks? The Chinese? Did the Republicans steal all the jobs?

0bama is a fool. His act is stale and obvious and this 1 year audition is sooooo over.

This FOOL just doesn’t get it; man, what a one note tune! Time to REALLY reassess your priorities, bama and behave as if millions of people actually voted for you. I know it’s tough for you but try acting presidential instead of vindictive, petty and selfish.

Obama advisors: “Hey, let’s go back to what works……uh….why don’t you run for President again?”

PATHETIC!

You got the job, Jug Ears! Now PERFORM!

Let’s put some ficus plants over here…the marigolds over in that section, and the hydrangea bushes up front for some color. Turn on the applause sign.
OK, Mr. President, you’re on.

The one thing I found missing from Obama’s tirade was any sense that how they approached this may have been wrong. The polls that I saw stated that people we as upset with the process and they were with the product. The backroom deals, closing out the Republicans from the process, playing partisan politics with an issue so important. So, did I mess something? Did he address that and I just didn’t see it? Perhaps we just had this edited clip and he said it somewhere else? I think not, judging the tone he used here.

I have little faith in the party that can’t blame themselves and always feels it’s because they didn’t get their message out. Someone tell the Democrats, they got their message out and people think it sucks.

And to think: everyone believes Pelosi to be the insane one..

Next thing you know he will be hosting White House Tea Parties…

And this is the crux of the problem. Soetoro doesn’t get it. He will continue to fight AGAINST US!

Genius. The man has a political death wish.

Ricohoc on January 23, 2010 at 9:46 PM

The only man in the photo without a tie is the president of the United States of America??? Hawwahaahaahaahaahaa. Is this supposed to be the new suave look? This fool is NO president, merely a poseur. I guess his head swells so fast a tie tends to garrotte him? Take some tax dollars and buy yourself a GD tie fool!

Reminds me of Queeg in “The caine Mutiny.”

Always with the code. Newspeak in 2010. Sheeet Bambi, that novel was written fifty years ago! Sure there are teh gullible but they are only 30% ever. It’s part of human evolution; the sucker part.

You suckered another 23% to get elected with lies. And, Dumbo, expect it to continue. No mas

Thank you for being the prime example of political liar. With luck, your fascist pretense will energize conservatives for two generations.

O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

I’m waiting for Baracky Boy to reiterate Usama’s words:
“Peace be upon those who follow guidance”.

“In Christianity, tie is a remembrance of their false belief of crucifixion of Hazrat Syedna Masih Alhe Salam and forgiveness for Christians. (Fatwa Mustafvia, on “Therefore it is not allowed for Muslims to wear a tie neither during a wedding ceremony nor on any occasion. Do not send your children to schools where tie is a part of uniform code. Because wearing a tie is Haram and it is a must for Muslims to refrain him/herself from Haram and also protect his/her family from Haram.”

Is it allowed for Muslims to Wear a Tie? http://www.islamicacademy.org/html/Fatwa/English/Tie.htm
