Hate speech coming from the presidential lectern? That's what it sounded like to me.
In his called news conference president, Barry Hussein Soetoro explained to angry Progressive Liberals the compromise he made which extended the already record 99 weeks of unemployment benefits to jobless Americans in return for keeping taxes at the present level for all Americans. Unemployment had to be extended because millions of Americans remain unemployed in spite of the One trillion dollars spent in the presidents failed economy stimulus package, which did not provide jobs as he promised.
The president used the most bi-partisan language he knew to give an analogy to reporters describing why he was forced to work with Republicans rather than discriminate against Americans.

Perfectly logical when the POTUS is aligned with radical Muslims against the United States.
I've come to the conclusion that the only, reason he hasn't cut and run from Afghanistan (yet) is because continuing a war of containment there means more American wealth transferred to his Muslim friends under the cloak of national security.
Now we know why O was obsessed w/ reforming h/care and gaining control of Medicare/Aid and college loans.
REFERENCE When she left to join the Obama admin in 2009, the University of Chicago Medical Center gave Susan Sher $511,000 $49,000 in unused holiday and vacation pay, $149,000 in salary and bonus pay and $313,000 in a payout of a supplemental executive retirement plan.
Michele Obama was getting $317,000-a-year as VP of the hospital's community and external relations when she left to work for Obama's campaign. Valerie Jarrett, and David Axelrod's company got huge hospital contracts from MO........the two also went to work for Obama......
How does a hospital generate that much green? The Ovomitons were obviously helping themselves to federal monies.......and when they stole the WH, they went to work to help themselves to billions.
REFERENCE University of Chicago receives $42 million in stimulus funds for biological and medical research October 5, 2009 Researchers at the University of Chicago have been awarded more than $42 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health, part of a $5 billion boost for medical research from the federal economic stimulus package.

Ohaha earmarked $11 billion in his healthcare (gag) reform for community health centers.
ABC NEWS, Nov 18, 2009----Stimulus grants: Why Was The White House Website Riddled With Errors?
Officials tell ABC News so far, they found 700 mistaken Congressional districts out of more than 130,000 stimulus grants. On Monday night, ABC reported on errors found on the website set up by the White House to track the number of jobs created or saved by the economic stimulus program. The website was riddled with reports of jobs in places that didn't even exist. That report prompted anger on Capitol Hill, and defensiveness at the White House. On Tuesday night's broadcast, ABC's Chief Congressional Correspondent Jon Karl took another look at the stimulus confusion (link)
LINK---Jon Karl: White House Vows to Correct Stimulus Reports Officials Tell ABC News So Far, They Found 700 Mistaken Congressional Districts Out of More Than 130,000 Stimulus Grants
ABC NEWS' JONATHAN KARL, Chief Congressional Correspondent, REPORTS, Nov. 17, 2009
When it comes to stimulus spending, could the wheels of government bureaucracy be grinding too quickly for once? Responding to more inaccuracies discovered in the reporting of spending and job creation from the administration's economic stimulus plan, the top White House official charged with overseeing the program vowed today to go through the reports with a fine-toothed comb and to correct the mistakes.
The promise came after ABC News found that Recovery.gov, the government Web site created to track the expenditures, had many job creation and stimulus spending figures that were attributed to congressional districts that do not exist, or that were incorrectly identified.
"The first time out, we knew there were going to be problems," said Edward DeSeve, special advisor to the president on the stimulus bill. "We don't think there are a lot of them. There are less than 1 percent in terms of the recent concern about congressional districts of the overall reports. And we've got a good commitment from the recovery board to work with us to fix them."
Officials tell ABC News, so far, they have found 700 mistakenly credited congressional districts out of more than 130,000 stimulus grants. The White House's Web site claims that more than 640,000 jobs have already been saved and created by the " $787 billion stimulus program. The reports used to come up with that number are riddled with errors.
In addition to the jobs in non-existent congressional districts reported Monday by ABC News, in real congressional districts, there are also problems, lots of them.
Moore's Shoes in Campbellsville, Ky., claims nine jobs were created from an $890 grant for nine pairs of work boots for the Army Corps of Engineers. Head Start of Augusta, Ga., claimed 317 jobs with a $790,000 grant, but it was really just a one-time raise to its 317 employees.
Chris Whitley is a fiscal officer for Central Savannah River Area Economic Opportunity Authority, which administers the Head Start program in Augusta. He says it was the administration's stimulus help line that advised them to claim 317 jobs. "It wasn't illegal, immoral or unethical. And they told me to do it, so I did it," said Whitley.
The mistakes have prompted anger on Capitol Hill. Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., the powerful chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, was outraged that one sewer project in his district was listed as creating 100 jobs. The real number is five. When asked what he thought when he saw the mistakes in his district, Obey said, "I wanted to strangle somebody."
Obey is demanding the administration fix the mistakes. "Fix the problem, the blessed problem, so that we're getting accurate information. I don't care what people's bureaucratic niceties are, or how hard it is to do it. I mean, they've got to fix the problem, so the American people can understand what the realities are.

FR Posted August 09, 2010 by bronxville
...Just how big is the stimulus package? Well for one, it has doubled the size of the House of Representatives, according to recovery.gov, which says that funds were distributed to 440 congressional districts that do not exist.
According to data retrieved from recovery.gov, nearly $6.4 billion was used to create or save just under 30,000 jobs in these phantom congressional districtsalmost $225,000 per job. The web site operates on an $84 million budget and is tasked with monitoring the distribution of the $787 billion stimulus package passed by Congresswhich, for the record, counts 435 membersin early 2009...
DID GANGSTER GOVERNMENT SCAM TRILLIONS USING THE MADOFF MO? Ponzi Madoff created a supersecret labyrinth of interrelated international funds, institutions and financial entities of almost unparalleled complexity and breadth......with assets and businesses in multiple places overseas that hid thievery, money launderering and tax evasion. "Professor" Obama surrounded himself with Wall Street shrewdies---like Chief Shrewdie Rahmn Emanuel. Wall Street knows how to make money disappear faster than a cream puff at a Weight Watcher weigh-in. They are helping themselves to billions as we type....... tick tock, tick tock.....
===================================================== Novelist Dean Koontz stated in a public forum that at least $70 BILLION has been stolen by the Obama administration.
The part that is really terrible about 0bama’s statement is that he told all the Terrorists in the world that all they have to do to get us to negotiate with them is to harm a hostage!
All ZerO needs to know he learned at Rev. Wright’s church.
