Say What? Silly Things Liberals Say; July 30th Edition
Flopping Aces ^ | 07-30-12 | Gary Kukis

Michelle Obama, to the Olympic audience: “We love you, but we want you to take care of yourselves, help your family, turn off the TV, eat some vegetables—yeah, that’s part of it.”

President Obama: “I believe that the only way to create an economy built to last is to strengthen the middle class, asking the wealthy to pay a little more so that we can pay down our debt in a balanced way.”  The additional amount of revenue potentially generated by tax increases on the wealthy will pay for somewhere between 3 and 8 days.  If all the money made this past year was taken from the wealthy, Obama could very nearly balance the budget--for one year.

President Obama: "And I confess the progress didn't come quickly, and it did not come easily.  Sometimes it didn't come at all. There were times where I thought about giving up and moving on. But what...has sustained [me] is the belief that in America, change is always possible. That our union may not be perfect, but it is perfectible...yes, we can form that more perfect union.”

President Obama: "Because we're leading around the world, people have a new attitude toward America. There's more confidence in our leadership. We see it everywhere we go,"

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a fund-raising email: “Republicans in Congress would obstruct President Obama from having cereal for breakfast if they could.”  Really, it said that.

Vice President Joe Biden: "I had to ask my wife to marry me five times before she said yes."

White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest, via email: "The embargo will allow journalists to hear the entirety of the Vice President's remarks and get the benefit of having their questions answered -- before trying to condense a 30-minute conference call about a 20-page NEC report into a 140 characters."  What was happening was, Biden would say something goofy, and reporters would quickly tweet that.  So, no more tweeting Biden remarks.

President Obama: “For the first time ever, we've made military families and veterans a top priority not just at DOD, not just at the VA, but across the government.”

President Obama: “So let's stop playing politics with our military. Let's get serious and reduce our deficit and keep our military strong.”

Liberals on the economy:

President Obama: “We tried our plan and it worked!  That’s the difference.”

President Obama: "[A strong economy] was built because we invested in great schools and great universities, and we put rules of the road in place to make sure that everybody was being treated fairly.  Let me just point out that the approach that I'm talking about has also been tested. Just like their [Republican] theories have been tested and didn't work, my theories have been tested. The last time they were tried was by a guy named Bill Clinton. And we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficits to surplus, and we created a lot of millionaires to boot."

Liberals on “You didn’t build that”:

President Obama’s off-teleprompter remarks of two weeks ago: “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.  There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.  Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges.  If you've got a business -- you didn't build that.  Somebody else made that happen.”

Senior campaign adviser David Axelrod: "I was concerned when I saw the initial ad that it might be impactful.  I've concluded that it's not all that impactful. But the ad that we did in response got a very good response in the testing that we did. Because it pushes our message forward."

However, after being pounded away at for nearly two weeks, the President put out an ad:  "Those ads taking my words about small business out of context; they're flat out wrong. Of course Americans build their own business. Everyday hard-working people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs, and make our economy run.  And what I said was that we need to stand behind them as America always has. By investing in education, training, roads and bridges, research and technology. I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message because I believe we're all in this together."

eat some vegetables—yeah, that’s part of it.

Yeah, eat like me and you too will all have a big fat arse and thighs the size of tree trunks. Hey, the media ignores my large posterior and tells everyone how beautiful and "hot" I am.

Don't forget to eat veggies, so when the waiter says the choice of soups is chicken noodle or split pea, you can tell her to hold the chicken and make it pea.

“President Obama: “Because we’re leading around the world, people have a new attitude toward America. There’s more confidence in our leadership. We see it everywhere we go,””

Maybe that LSD he did in college hasn’t worn off yet.
