Obama on Campaign: I’ve Tried to be Bipartisan

At an Ohio campaign stop on Thursday, President Obama spoke to local media and did what he does best- shifted the blame. He told a WLTW reporter that he thinks most people would agree he’s tried to be bipartisan, it’s the Republicans who won’t play along.

Really Mr. President? Is it bipartison to allow your party leaders to name call? Joe Biden calling the Tea Partiers terrorists, Maxine Waters saying the Tea Party could go straight to Hell, and she’d help them get there- that’s being bipartisan?

After three years without a budget, isit bipartisan to fear-monger about the most serious Republican proposal and say it would cause inaccurate weather predictions?

Mr. President, the bipartisanship is two parties working together and compromising to meet an end where both can find something to be happy with.

Bipartisanship is not proposing radical ideas and calling anyone who disagrees with you a terrorist or an ideologue. Bipartisanship is not refusing to even consider the ideas put forth by leaders across the political aisle. Bipartisanship is not using executive privilege to mandate a policy you can’t pass through legislation. And most of all, bipartisanship is not using the office of the presidency to try to shame or heckle opponents into voting in your favor. None of these are the actions of a bipartisan president. These, your actions, are the actions of a petulant child, who can’t countenance not getting his way.

And as for common sense ideas, Mr. President-

Common sense ideas like health care ‘reform’ that results in the largest tax increase in American history, inordinately affecting the middle class? Common sense ideas like spending at a rate  a trillion dollars above  federal income and nearly tripling the inherited deficit? Common sense ideas like multi-billion dollar stimulus packages, that years later still leave the unemployment rate hovering around 8%?

Do you really think these sound like common sense ideas to the American citizen trying to live within a budget? To the citizen who has been struggling to find work? To the citizen who has had to make cuts in their spending in order to feed their family?

The American people are not stupid, Mr. President. They know the difference between common sense and power-mad. And they are tired of the same old excuses. It’s the Republicans fault is it? You’ve been using that excuse since the day you stepped into office, and your party has been in control that entire time. Maybe it’s time for you to stop blaming others, and put some of those common sense ideas into action.

  1. Is that almost like “I’ve fallen down and I can’t get up”.

    Man is this guy pathetic. The United States of America brought fools gold. What a shame. He could have be a contender.

  2. The man is a Communist. Okay? He’s a liar. He will not ever tell the truth about what he’s doing, and what he has, and will be doing to us. Remember waht he said in that interview when he was asked about the Constitution? He said the Warren Court (the Supreme Court during the early 60’s when Erle Warren was the Chief Justice who was allowing all the leftist things to be begun to our society), Obama said he didn’t go far enough (when Warren began the destruction of our Constitutional Republic), and didn’t allow enough Constitutional amendments from the Johnson administration to give the government more power to do more for the American people so that it could do more TO the American people.

    So Obama is going to finish the jobs that were begun by Roosevelt in the Socialist programs he wanted that were stopped by the Court, and the things that were stopped during the Johnson administration, Carter, and Clinton administrations. He’s the One, remember? He’s the One everybody has been waiting for. Yeah, he’s the One alright, the one who is going to bring about everything that could ever be destructive to this nation.

    Like David Limbaugh’s new book, please buy it, it will open your eyes even more than ever before about who Obama is, but like David Limbaugh’s new book is titled “Obama, The Destroyer!”

    Just keep in mind that Obama is not in office to help anyone but Communist and their plans to destroy what America used to be and turn it into a grave yard!

  3. Everytime I hear some guy on the radio who says that Obama is going to win in November, I want to throw up!

    The only thing I can say is please vote for Romney. No, I don’t like him. But compared to another four years under a Communist, knowing what I know he is going to do to this nation in preparing it for the New World Order, I want to throw up every time I think about Romney loosing because America has got to many people who have no idea what this nation is supposed to be. We have proof of what the liberals had planned to do to our public education system in the making of dumb, ignorant, and brain washed individuals who won’t know what the liberals are doing to their country, and could care less so long as they have their water bottle stuck in their mouth, their latte’s, and their worthless college degree taught by Communist. The liberals wanted to produce a populance that would be easy to control, and boy did they do a good job. They got us shoved off into the corner with guilt trips about how we have mistreated the poor Blacks, and while we were cowering in the corner they were busy dismantling our society. When we knew that Blacks had a much better life before the liberals claimed they were entitled to much, much more than they were getting, but we did nothing to tell the Blacks the truth about who the liberals really were and what their plans would do to all races in this nation. The only thing that needed to be done for Blacks was to remove the restrictions on them about their place in our society. That was it. Give them the same rights to employment, education, without destroying the education system that they were so mad about not having access to was the very system liberals destroyed. Do you know why? Because it would have produced a smart, informed, and intellegent Black race that would not have been easy to trick into following leftist programs and plans. It would have produced Blacks who could not be fooled and would have known what the left was up to. Liberals didn’t want that to happen, so they turned Blacks against Whites and convinced a already mad race into a really mad race that would do whatever liberals told them to do so long as Blacks got what they believed the lie of what the White man had kept them from.

    And liberals have been on that same thing for the past 50 years. Even though many Blacks have discovered the truth about what liberals have done to their race, there are still to many who are still mad about the same thing liberals told them about a long time ago. And our society was changed in the way it needed to have been way back in the 60’s, but the liberals didn’t stop there. If they had let up for a second they feared that White would come back and take back control of the society and try to undo what the liberals had done. No we wouldn’t have. We would have gone on like it was and made every opportunity for Blacks to learn how to make a better future for all of them instead of the future liberals gave them….Welfare, and the New Black Panthers who want to kill Whites for the same reasons they were killing Whites for back in the 60’s.

    Obama is just letting these things continue because it is going the way he wants it to go, and it’s doing the work so he doesn’t have to do, they are doing it for him. He’s the One, don’t you know.

  4. Obama’s idea of being bipartisan is for everyone to vote for what he wants.

    He wants the vote to be bipartisan, but the policy being voted on will be totally liberal left!
