Posted on 02/04/2013 8:12:19 AM PST by jehardy
President Barack Obama may have to reach out more to Democrats on Capitol Hill if he expects to win their support for his aggressive second-term agenda, reports Politico.
In interviews with dozens of Democratic members of Congress and senior aides, Politico found many are frustrated and angered by what they perceive as the presidents disregard for cultivating relationships with his party colleagues.
This comes at a time when the president is preparing to take on everything from taxes and immigration reform to gun control and climate change, and needs Democratic backing to get legislation through Congress.

They don’t ‘get’ it ~ their aloof Dear Leader doesn’t care about them or anyone.
Ain’t feelin’ the love anymore, eh useful idiots?
They still haven’t figured out that King Barry has decided that he doesn’t need Congress when he can get his way through unchallenged executive orders.
They were useful, now they’re just IDIOTS.
Hey, let’s give the dork some space.
He only has two operational brain cells, and one of them is 100% devoted to find the nearest mirror.
Glad to hear that even the dim-bulbs are finally realizing that the bat-eared-b*stard is indeed as stupid as he looks.
The Mugabes (or Castros or Chavezes) of the world don’t reach out to underlings.
They give orders, steal wealth and destroy nations.
Obama “Hey Carney - Have someone send the CBC some doughnuts”
Great, and we have four more years of this crap. Hope America survives...
Congress doesn’t realize that its sole purpose now is to rubber stamp everything the dictator wants. Eventually, the tyrant will decide he doesn’t need any of them.
Didn’t they complain about this during his last term? Lazy and not interested. Would rather goof off and golf.
Why would they think it would be better this term?
I seriously think that Obama did not want to win the election and found himself stuck in an administration that he does not want to direct.
Are these geniuses just now figuring out that Obama is a narcissistic loner?
I would have to agree with you. I think he was ready to fly off to Hawaii and spend the rest of his sorry ass life in a mansion eating poi and playing golf, but then he got re-elected.
Obama's entire 2nd term will be focused on global governance issues which satisfy the UN. Gun prohibition, water and pipeline issues, raising taxes(or revenues enhancement), mineral riches in Africa, wealth confiscation, and putting patsies into top posts in order to paralyze America.
S U C K E R S !!!!!!!!!!!!...........
Surviving Benghazi, only to become a prisoner of your own government...................
They confuse aloofness and disenagement with stupidity and incompetence.
Dictators don’t need to build relationships.
How long until Sean Penn wants to hang out with our dictator?
Obama is King, Congressmen are mere members of his Court. Pity these fools haven’t figured it out.
He’s never been interested in the work of the Presidency. But he wants the adulation and the perks. He’s compensating.
Needs Democratic backing.LOL the Emperor doesn’t require backing.
The congressional black caucus has added (OSSTM),obama supplemental sky travel miles to their demands for their people. If Egypt gets free F-16's at $80 million a copy, surely the folk in poor urban districts should be getting free planes too. Food, education, housing, healthcare, gas vouchers, transit passes, healthcare, cell phones, and EITC, should be the bare minimum. A Brother's gotta git around a longer ways than some Colt Malt down at the corner with an EBT card.
The steady influx of 1.2 million LEGAL immigrants a year will change the electorate of this country. In 1970 one in 21 was foreign born; today it is one in 8--the highest in 90 years; and by 2050 one in five will be foreign born, the highest in our history.
The 2012 election showed we have already reached the tipping point in terms of the WH. The Dems are now the permanent majority and will elect anyone with a D after his/her name, including a failed President. Hillary will be the next President in 2016 except for some physical reason why she couldn't run. It won't matter because any Dem nominated will win.
The news media’s lack of scrutiny (or even casual curiosity) about what really happened at Benghazi and their unwillingness to pursue obvious leads are danger signs for anyone who cares about freedom.
> ...Aloof, Disengaged Obama
That is how cult leaders behave.
I concur. Bughroch was prepared for Oahu, and then, he discovered the voters actually approved of the enslavement agenda. Obviously, he is free, and even obliged now, to try for the gold in his second term.
Is overreach even possible today, for Obama? It will be up to Americans to determine, define, and defeat.
Our king and potentate does not want to direct....that would mean having to actually do some work...
Obama simply wants to rule...and he definitely wanted to continue to reign and lord over us..by winning the last election
