Skip to comments.Obama: Republicans Must Be Embarrassed For Having Done So Little
Posted on 12/06/2013 10:03:16 AM PST by RC one
Republican lawmakers have to be embarrassed with how little they've accomplished in Congress, President Barack Obama said in an interview with MSNBC Hardball's Chris Matthews.
In the interview which aired Thursday night, Obama said the only thing that's stopping Congress from passing a major immigration reform bill are House Republicans. He went on to say that Republicans are probably ashamed that they've accomplished so little over the past few years in Congress.

We have done plenty and we're proud of it. Resisting the tyranny of Barack Obama is hard work.
Put that in your bongs and smoke it rats.
Millions of Americans would be much happier if the wimps in the GOP had brought charges of impeachment against this dictator, who makes up the laws he wants and ignores those passed by Congress that he doesn’t like. Where in the Constitution does it give him that authority?
I know I’M embarrassed that the GOP hasn’t closed down EPA, DOE, HHS and HUD.
What the pfft are they waiting for?
The productivity of Congress should not be measured by how many laws which liberals were in favor of passed.
Republicans can’t pass any bills on tneir own anyway, because anything they pass in the House has to get through the Senate and pass muster withObama too.
If the GOP has been an obstacle to passing some bad bills, then that’s all good in my opinion.
Congress and the GOP in particular, should not be judged on the liberal criteria of how many good liberal bills were passed.
“Based on all the damage he has done and his singular refusal to own up to it or change course to correct it, it’s no longer reasonable to deny that this infliction of damage is intentional ... “ — David Limbaugh
That the writer had the audacity to write this title is enough reason to discard any trust in it. They love to peddle ignorance as though it were some deep intellectual process that theyre walking you through when in reality it is them lying to frame those they politicall and socially despise.
The Audacity of a Dope.
Well damn, 0bama is right, and not lying for a change.
The Republicans, without a majority in the senate (lower case on purpose), should still impeach his Kenyan muslim marxist's ass. Then the Pubbies would have accomplished SOMETHING.
He is right. But the Repubs are beyond embarrassment except for a very few.
Nice try but we’re aware of the game. Obama and the Senate act as shields against each other (a plan no doubt cooked up by Chuck Schumer). Obama says “nothing got to me so I couldn’t sign anything so I’m not responsible.” And Harry Reid says “the president said he’ll veto X so we’re not even going to go through the motions of passing X, so we’re not responsible,” “You know who’s responsible, those evil republicans who have been passing bills that will never become law.”
To help me destroy the country. THE FOREIGNER and CHRISSY are not even americans in my book
In many respects republicans have done little to really stop this tyrant; instead cowering in fear that they cannot possibly oppose the first black president. A large part of them are gutless wonders who like governor Le Petomaine in Blazing Saddles famously took the stance: “We have to protect our phoney baloney jobs here, gentlemen! Harrumph! Harrumph! I didn’t get a ‘harrumph’ out of that guy!”
That guy being a Tea Party guy and the rest of us who are not GOPe.
Since when is Harry Reid a Republican?
Not even close. A move to impeach Obama would result in millions of Americans are going to make his approval ratings sore. That is simply the truth of it.
You and me Brother. Republicans should be ashamed for not backing Ted Cruz to the hilt when he tried to stop Obamacare. They should be ashamed for not bringing charges on fast and Furious, Benghazi, the Order not to uphold the law in DOMA and Immigration and for not stopping Obama illegal executive Orders.
Obama is right the republicans should be ashamed for not doing enough to stop this hybrid turd from destroying America.
And now we read that Boehner is trying to sneak in the back door with Amnesty. Republicans should be ashamed for having this crying fool as Speaker of the House.
Not even close. A move to impeach Obama would result in millions of Americans making his approval ratings soar. That is simply the truth of it.
Huh, they helped to increase the budget, increased the national debt, passed the gay protection bill, failed to protect the border, etc. They do enough damage already.
Who cares what he says in that interview? The only people who are interested are the other TV talking heads who never tire of talking about each other and calling it news.
This week the leftwing abc news radio called the GOP majority congress “do nothing congress” for its amount of legislation passed.
Only leftists would think there’s something bad about that.
Last time I checked the Republicans had a majority in the House and there was no filibuster so they can pass any bill they want on their own. The fact that it might die in the Senate or that Obama might veto it is an absolute cop-out.
This sort of thing drives me crazy, no matter who says it. Too many people judge how “productive” a Congress is by how many laws they pass.
When it comes to laws, more is not necessarily better. In fact, the opposite is probably true.
They have a couple of decades worth of work to do.
Ubama thinks that getting ready to ship people off to the camps is “doing something.”
The Republicans have not passed gun control.
Those are accomplishments. In my mind they are better accomplishments than the Democrat's ObamaCare. What other accomplishments can the Democrats point to after having a super majority?
To get a runaway train back to the station the first thing you have to do is stop it. Republicans need to continue that process.
Ideally, the government woud spend the next ten or twenty years repealing laws. I don’t want these saps doing anything else. Free us from the tyranny of laws
Conservative Repulicans, at least, do not look to Congress for solutions. We generally see it as part of the problem.
If congressional Republicans have reason to be embarrassed, it’s because of what they have let Pinnochiobama do. To the degree they’ve managed to thwart his destruction of our country, I salute them.
I am embarrassed for this country that people actually elected this dumb ass not once but TWICE
Keep an eye peeled for petulance henceforth.
On the other hand, the Dems really have accomplished a lot to maim and defile America....
...so they got that going for them....
I am embarrassed and ashamed that Obama is president.
What did Obama accomplish when he was in Congress?
He must be smoking crack.
You took away our votes and made us ride in the back of the bus and STFU so we are not embarrassed... we are going to shove your liberal agenda up Reggies favorite spot... kenyan.
Well then, I guess let O just do whatever he wants for the next 3+ years, eh?
I agree with Obama - The House should have impeached Holder by now and be considering articles of impeachment for Obama.
Get to work, boys.
He is a delusional turd.
I’m embarrassed that they’ve done so little.
So little to thwart your Marxist agenda.
i think his one meeting with sebelius in 3 1/2 years since bammycare passed, given how ‘well’ it’s turned out, is far more embarrasing than what pubs have or haven’t done.
I’m embarrassed that the republicans allowed a no talent, anti-American putz like Obama to BECOME president.
The Republicans that we managed to get elected are doing exactly what we sent them to DC to do, zero, stop you whenever possible.
“We must act immediately regarding the 10 million people that have to live in the shadows of society!”
“So what if 5% of Americans are losing their health care, that number is to small to be significant.”
So, the significantly smaller number of people living in the shadows is somehow a bigger number that calls for immediate action!
I’m embarrassed that this idiot is our president.
Barack Hussein Obama II is the shame of our nation...
My point is the best way to get people who are uninformed to flock back to support the guy would be to impeach him. The people here at this site understand what it is he’s been up to, but those arguments are politically technical and the average citizen isn’t going to get it. What they do get are the big things, like what is currently happening to their health insurance.
Also, as we learned with Bill Clinton, there is no point in impeaching a President unless there is the will in the Senate to convict. Do you really think a conviction is possible here? I do not.
Believe me, I get it when it comes to Obama trashing the constitution and not doing his sworn duty as President. But removing him through impeachment would have consequences that cannot be predicted. Even if he were to resign, which I would prefer, you cannot measure how the masses would react to that. I would expect riots in most of the major cities, etc.
There is the word we live in and the world we wish we lived in. Unfortunately, we are stuck and there is nothing that can be done immediately to put an end to Obama’s regime. And the clean-up is going to take years, if not decades.
There’s little left to do but impeach this clown.
The Dems will delay Obamacare until after the 2014 elections. The GOPe will screw up the elections in enough places to allow the lie to continue. When it matures, even many libs will be calling for his impeachment.
Of course, the Dem Senate is going to protect him. That might actually help bring them down.
Not that the damage already done isn’t going to create severe problems; we are way beyond that point.
So it’s a Pyrrhic victory.
The GOP (well some of them) did their best to stop Obamacare from rolling out on Oct 1st. If they wouldn’t have stopped by President Obama, that would have been a major acomplishment.
No matter, when the deficits up to 20 trillion dollars when Obama leaves office, it’s most likely us fiscal conservatives will be left to pay the tab, endure all of the responsibility, and basically make all the hard decisions Obama didn’t have the guts to make.
Obama can write a book about his vacations with his Famoly and dogs, and how it is to spend millions of taxpayer monies on Himself while he screws the older citizens over in Medical misuse. I have never seen a more dense and stupid
bunch than the current Democrats.
Shame on Him. He will continue to destroy this wonderful Country.
