Skip to comments.Stephanopoulos Paves Way For Obama To Use ‘Clenched Fist’ On Congress
Posted on 02/06/2009 6:12:48 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Those Republicans are so mean-spirited, the Messiah might just be forced to use the clenched fist on them. Wont be his fault, of course. The GOP will have brought this on itself. That was George Stephanopoulos not-so-subtle warning on GMA this morning, as he discussed with Chris Cuomo the fate of the pork stimulus bill, which in a withering column Charles Krauthammer has called a legislative abomination.
CHRIS CUOMO: Can President Obama go to the people? Can he use that as his trump card here?
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: I think it might be what he has to do, Chris. And were starting to see elements of that just in the last couple days. The presidents gotten much tougher in his speeches. Now the presidents package has actually been losing public support, but the president remains very popular. And to borrow a metaphor from the presidents inaugural address, he might have to replace his open hand with a clenched fist if this bi-partisan agreement doesnt come today.

Stephanopoulos’ “clenched fist” threat ping to Today show list.
Is this for real???
So instead of begging for money he’s going to mug us for it. Clinched fist indeed.
Hilarious. It is becoming obvious. He may be the most incompetent President in history.
If Obama tries his clenched fist, we should all call for a nationwide general strike to shut down commerce in this country until some sanity prevails.
"Ms. Peter Jenning and I will stake the entire credibility of ABC
on the matter that Obama is not, and never was, Moslem."
Metrosexualopoulos needs a clenched fist upside his quaffed forehead.
Did Stephie preface (sp?) his interview by letting the audience know he had spoken to Bama this morning in a secret phone call?
Georgie got his marching orders from Rahm Emanuel. God, I am sick of these Clinton flunkies monopolizing the airwaves.
We need a “Fairness Doctrine” for TV news shows. Every time a Democrat flunkie politico comes on and spouts nonsense, we need a Republican following who laughs out loud.
Dictators always bring out the “clenched fist”. Littleshit Georgie is just a punk who is playing his role.
This Clymer forgets even though ZERO won it wasn’t a mandate and a lot of people that voted for ZERO are having second thoughts.
Time to tell ABC this CLYMER needs to go — probably won’t do any good but you will feel better venting.
Take it to the American people with the details and the support for the package will drop in the 20% range. So now the Chicago thug comes out — that is not going to sell anything and his rhetoric is going to make people like Lindsey Graham get even more stubborn on the package. Knew something had happened when Graham took to the floor and went after the CA Senator.
Republicans need to VOTE NO! Tell Reid it is all yours!
Tadslos and Liblieslayer: Your names for Snuffalupagas are just too funny. LOL
I am really looking forward to Monday’s news conference. Since he won’t have his teleprompter am waiting to see if he has the questions before hand, who he calls on, who he doesn’t call on.
And the People of America need to greet his 'clenched fist' with a single, upright finger.
He wants to throw a fit and declare "I won!"?...fine.
Let's see him play by himself.
It looks like Hussein my be done being “Mr. Guy Nice”!!
What has continually intrigued me about the Left is their psychological pathology which transfers existential foreign threats on to their internal domestic rivals.
Put simply, American Christian Conservatives are threat constructed as True Intrinsic Evil while Islamist radicals are reduced to disagreeable colleagues.
Stephie is quoting the portion of Obama’s inaugural directed to foreign enemies. Not surprising is Obama’s move of total capitulation on the international scene and desperate attack mode in the domestic scene.
For the Left, Conservatives are the only true enemy.
And does he truly think Americans are too stupid to figure that out?
That means he's either a) a common sociopathic politician, or b) a moronic Mr. Magoo. Neither image is flattering for "The One We Have Been Waiting For."
It’s a black thing....
The skinny little kid from Kenya hasn’t made a fist in his entire life.
Let’s see....last I read, over 50% of the American people are against this bill. Between tax cheats in the cabinet, closing Gitmo, stopping trials, terror pardoners in the Attorney General’s office, if I were Zero, I’d think twice before trying to sell us a pig in a porkulus. We’re not stupid, although this clown probably thinks we are, since he managed to bluff and fool 52% of the voters.
Good luck there, Zero. You can pass this without the Republicans. Own it. You Dems had no trouble being partisan with Bush. We’re just returning the favor. FINALLY.
Clear something up for me: is this the same George Stepalloverus who hosts an ABC News program every Sunday who also has regular strategery chats with Rahm The Gun Grabber Emmanuel?
Every time I hear this jerks name I am reminded that former Republican Congresswoman Susan Molinari was run out of the media when she tried to do a show after she quit congress. The news media said she could not be objective. I hate those SOBs.
I actually speculated at the end of the FinkelBlog column that Carville might have come up with George’s line this morning.
Obama's man at ABC "News".
“And does he truly think Americans are too stupid to figure that out?”
Strptococcus and Rahm prolly are banking on the sheeple still thinkin’ the Republicans are still in control of Congress!
Whoops! left out an “e.”
So Obama tells the Muslim world “we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist....but gives more than half the people of America and duly elected members of congress only his clenched fist.
Thanks, Steffie. By invoking your messiah’s inaugural metaphor, you’re unwittingly useful in the cause of truth. Keep it coming, ya little twink.
Another guy who did not get his @$$ beat enough when he was a kid.
Maybe to his boy friend.
No it is like he is giving America the FINGER!
Yeah... the very same little slime-ball fag.
“The skinny little kid from Kenya hasnt made a fist in his entire life.”
...you’re right, but I bet his fat-ass wife has and if he continues to screw up this gig up she is going to kick his ass!
Yeah. Go to the people. 47% of them don’t want this spending mess, 42% do, and the other 11% surveyed answered “Barack who? Stimulus what? Edith, get me a beer huh!”
Of course he’s giving America the finger. That’s my point. It’s out in the open, plain as day, where even the dreamy eyed hope-and-change kumbaya crowd can begin to see this administration for what it is. And that’s a good thing. This country cannot be saved until the scales fall from the eyes of the willfully blind. Steffie is unwittingly helping that along. The more Obama and his minions honestly reveal themeslves, the better.
LMAO. Look at Stephy’s face! The Demonrat myth is about to die and they will be forever remembered for having presided over the fall of the United States of America. These people are going to get their justice with the reality setting in on what they actually are as to the stereotype how they are for the poor. They’ll own it no matter what and all Republicans would be smart to stay away from adding their names to this catastrophe. But I love Georgie’s panicked face!
You are so right. Even the Hope-A-Dopes will finally see that he is all hat and no cattle. You can only listen to the SOS so many times to see he is NOT a leader. Course we saw it along time ago but maybe just maybe, even the democrats will see that he is just a bafoon. I think Nancy will push him around too. That part will be fun to watch.
