Obama: "Republican voters often agree with me"
Pundit & Pundette ^ | September 1, 2012

Posted on 09/01/2012 3:26:25 PM PDT by NYer

Huh? It's just another whopper from President Obama. From the Daily Caller:

Obama was asked, “So how are you going to talk to Republicans differently if you are reelected?”

“Republican voters, if you ask them about my particular policy positions, often agree with me. So there’s a difference between Republicans in Washington and Republican and Republican-leaning voters around the country,” Obama said in a Parade Magazine reader question-and-answer session published on Friday.

“I think that after this election, we’ll be in a position to once again reach out to Republicans and say that the American people have rendered a judgment, and the positions we’re taking are well within what used to be considered bipartisan centrist approaches.”

“When you look at the policies I’ve promoted, they used to be considered bipartisan, mainstream ideas. What’s changed is not me. What’s changed is where the Republican Party’s gone,” he said.
"Once again reach out to Republicans"? As in "I won, I will trump you on that"? Or as in Obamacare, which was shoved down our throats without any GOP support?

But no, if you're thinking Obama and company are radical lefties, well, you're just confused. Obama's a centrist. Got that, independents? (Pay no attention to his passion for big government, his executive overreach, his takeover of the health care system, his contempt for religious liberty and freedom of conscience, his attacks on business, his radical views on abortion and the sanctity of life, etc. Nothing to see there.)

If Obama wins, brace yourselves for the new flexibility.

Maybe on the type of beer he drinks.
That’s about it.

He is absolutely right, which is why the RINOs must go as well.

The sky is blue (some days)
The sun rises in the east
Water is wet
Obama said of his plan to fix the financial crisis that “if I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

Yep! Lots of things on which to agree with Obama

I agree that it’s better to go play golf on Sundays than to go with a Wookie to listen to Rev Wright.

But then the roofies wear off, and they come to their senses.

Someone told Obama to borrow Mitt's etch-a-sketch and make like a severe conservative?

There is more BS going on in this election than at a fold up traveling carnival.

Sure we do. For example, Al Greene is a great vocalist.

I’ll think of something else, give me a few minutes.

And in what parallel universe does THAT happen?

Delusion is such a lovely treat for the senses.

But only if the real world never intrudes.

Since he's the Republican nominee now I can unequivocally, and with complete certitude, say that you are totally accurate with that statement and I agree with what you said 100%.

BTW, have you ever heard the words "Constitutional Republic", or even just Republic, pass from his lips? I've asked others to no gain and my own search to date has been futile.

Like the Republicans who keep sending Lindsey Graham back to the Senate.

Linda is done come 2014. We've got some real tigers in the House right now. Hopefully, one will step up and we'll primary Linda

Who the HELL do you want????

Well, my vote has been up for the taking for a number of years.

The person I want is simply somebody who recognizes our form of government. That's why I asked you since you seem to be such an ardent supporter. Otherwise I can't, in good conscious, vote for anybody.

My vote is available for the right price and it's pretty cheap, IMO...now earn it!

So I'll once again give you a chance...have you ever heard the words "Constitutional Republic", or even just Republic, pass from his lips?

Obama: "Republican voters often agree with me"

He's absolutely right... Republican voters do agree with Obama at least 7 days a week: "Today is Sunday," "Today is Monday," "Today is Tuesday," etc...

“So there’s a difference between Republicans in Washington and Republican and Republican-leaning voters around the country,”

he is right. washington corrupt, elitist, power-hungry , self-centered rino pukes don’t care about the country and are not patriots. conservatives are.

Like Obamacare? Yeah, Obama sure sought bipartisan consensus on health care, didn't he?
