Via Breitbart, I would actually agree with the First Lady on this one President Obama has demonstrated a rather disquieting level of comfort with circumventing a Congress that doesnt agree on wholesaling his liberal agenda. But, as to why thats supposed to be a positive thing Im not sure Im getting it.
(VIDEO AT LINK)
MICHELLE OBAMA ON The TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW: "Well, were understanding that, you know, you can have a president you love, but if you dont have a congress thats willing to work, you know, you wind up stalled in so many ways. And I think that Barack has done a phenomenal job working around a congress that has never been willing to help move the country forward on so many different issues. But I think hes done everything humanly possible to get things passed around the margins. But, you know, just imagine where this country will be when we have Barack Obama as President and we have a congress thats ready to work hand-in-hand, and willing to compromise to make sure that this country moves forward for everyone."
I wonder how many days and in how many ways Ill find myself making this same point before were finally out of the woods of this particular presidency: In the first two no-holds-barred years of his term, Obama passed stimuli, Dodd-Frank, and of course the major PPACA overhaul sans bipartisan support. Ergo, Americans showed up to vote in November 2010 en masse for conservative candidates, specifically electing a new Congress to thwart his unpopular agenda. This is not rocket science its called checks and balances, and it is a highly useful feature of our democratic institutions. I suppose Team Obama is relying on us having short political memories and is trying to get us to focus on the gridlock of the last two years, so we can all forget about how we overwhelmingly rejected having Barack Obama as president paired with a Congress thats ready to work hand-in-hand.
This is what you get from Moochelle Robinson, affirmative action student at Princeton.
I pray that the Heritage Foundation or other conservative groups are documenting everyone and everything that has to be fired and undone when this dictator is voted out of office!
Phenomenal = Impeachment-worthy.
That he could possibly remain in office perfectly illustrates the depravity of our once civil society.
And around the Constitution. Right Evita?
“.....working around Congress...”
Aye, moochie...and that is the problem....
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Ska-rew "We The People". What do us idiots know about progressivism anyway?
Conservatives are well aware of how Obama subverts the constitution to get his way..what is maybe more troubling is the FLOTUS boasting about it
Men and women have died and are dying daily to protect and defend our constitution which they boast about ignoring.
Michelle and Barack see themselves as king and queen. We have freed ourselves from a monarchy before let’s hope we can do it again.
The Obamas are shameful people who hate America and its foundation. They are grifters who back the grifters of AMERICA.
They need to be brought up on charges of treason after they boast about circumventing the Constitution.
Your husband took an oath, Michelle, and he never meant it. Is that because he took his real oath on the Koran. You know, the one he did out of the public eye?
Wow! I hope most Americans remember we are a Constitutional Republic and this kind of bragging is actually a really, really, bad thing!
Is THAT why he had to take the oath TWICE with his "PAL" Roberts?
SO that means Barack can no longer blame Congress or Bush since he has done what he wanted, right??
They seem to always forget that for the first 2 yrs he had a congress he could work with. Where did that get us?
It got us Obamacare.
“They seem to always forget that for the first 2 yrs he had a congress he could work with. Where did that get us?”
I’m not sure but I do know there isn’t enough Vaseline in the world for a second term with this jackass.
Hard to do when the serfs get free stuff.
That is what I think. I wonder what they have on John Roberts?
BOEHNER - AWOL
McCONNELL - AWOL
WHERE THE HELL IS THE LEADERSHIP???
... and Barak has also done a pretty good job of working around you, Michelle. I notice he keeps Reggie Love close-by while you & the little Obama’s go off on your numerous ‘vacations’.
WHY AREN’T MOOCHELLE AND BARRY IN JAIL?
It worked for quite awhile in Germany.
She's right. America doesn't have a working Congress. If we did, she wouldn't never have become FLOTUS.
