Skip to comments.Obama: Only I'm the president of the U.S.
Posted on 06/23/2009 4:37:07 PM PDT by pissant
David Axelrod, making the rounds of news shows tonight to polish the administration's messages coming out of President Barack Obama's news conference today, talked about the talk the administration is having about Iran and North Korea.
The problem, Republicans are complaining, is that it's all talk, and no walk.
But the president himself addressed that question today, when asked about Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham calling his response to Iran timid and weak, and then asked if the words that he used today for Iran's treatment of protestors -- "deplored, appalled'' and "outraged'' - were "influenced at all by McCain's and Graham's accusations.''
"What do you think?'' Obama abruptly asked the reporter, with a bit of "duh'' in the air, followed by nervous laughter in the press room.
"I think John McCain has genuine passion about many of these international issues and, you know, I think that all of us share a belief that we want justice to prevail,'' Obama said. "But only I'm the president of the United States. And I've got responsibilities in making certain that we are continually advancing our national security interests, and that we are not used as a tool to be exploited by other countries.''

He should resign, then jump off a bridge.
Apparently he hadn’t yet reached that philosophy when he was over in Iraq a year ago negotiating our troop draw downs behind closed doors...
He could chose which one to do first I could care less
Either order is fine by me
The rules don’t apply to boy quisling.
As he keeps reminding us. What's he afraid of? I wonder . . . .
“that we are not used as a tool to be exploited by other countries.’’
Oh, we’re WAY passed that.
Birth certificate, please.
You just made me think of a new name: PINO (President In Name Only).
How many times does the malignant narcissist use the word I when supposedly representing We? We are so screwed, bottled water and canned goods...
Whats amazing about this whole thing, the American voter will probably put this idiot in office for a second term. ;-)
bozo should have never won the Dem election let alone the national election and the only reason he won twice is because the while thing was a fraud , with illegals voting.
intimidation, fraud, hundreds of thousands , maybe millions voting twice or more, just in my state there was over a 100,000 votes which came from just two states and that does not include those snow birds form the north who use their vacation addresses to vote down here while voting up there, add the ACORN and the pre paid credit cards which had millions coming thought that way which he blasted the airwaves.
then it is a fraud and could put Iran’s election to shame and maybe that is why bozo is not saying much about their election
He’s an arrogant pus, isn’t he?
We NEVER had such a small man in such a big job.
sscc, birth certificate and a fraudulent election
Oh for heaven's sake. This blue lipped mini-czar is absolutely FULL OF HIMSELF! My guess-they have put a lot more mirrors up in the WH so this imperial half black man gets plenty of face time with himself.
He needs to be taken to the woodshed and spoken to directly. Problem is...he has a bunch of dirty dealing, filthy thinking creepy advising him along the lines of the stupid Rev Wright---ie Rahm boy.
Uhbama is dangerous fantasyland child playing in the real world and leading the most giving, generous, gracious and powerful nation on earth into a deep dark pit of total government control.
Perfect! Use that as a tagline. ;-)
“But only I’m the president of the United States.”
He sounds like a whiny baby...”it’s mine!”
The Messiah shouldn't belittle himself with such speak in front of us mere humans.
Yet another version of "I won." It's as if he feels he has to keep reminding himself. ...and everyone else.
What do I think? I think you are an arrogant asshole.
He’s a frikkin hologram, and a testy one today. Dear Leader does not tolerate a media that does not adore him.
“But only I’m the president of the United States.....”

If you have to continually tell people that you are important, it proves that your not convinced either.
I wish he had expressed this instead of attacking pres Bush for all those many years.
Democrats can be always remindful of what ails a Republican President, but put them in charge and everyone just needs to back off, see?
well not if I can help it,.
I now question every bozo voter I see with a bozo sticker and ask them how they think he is doing and then question it.
Mention millions losing jobs, the debt, mention you’re not a fan of bailouts under Bush either, mention how the foreign policy is not going good or how our allies scorn on their messiah and they quickly melt away with shame.
Also mention little comments while in a waiting room, a line etc and the word is getting out.
My wife was in a waiting room and as soon as she saw him she said out loud not this idiot again , can he ruin us any more.
She nearly dropped when everyone agreed including a woman who has just left school and cannot get a job and voted for him
So, he’s more concerned about the mullas telling him to stay out of their business then he is about the people fighting and dying to be free? Apparently!
Good thing Reagan wasn’t worried about the Russians slapping his wrist.
Here ya go Dave
I liked how the author, Mark Silva, didn’t capitalize the word “President” for Zer0’s quote.
“But only I’m the president of the United States.”
I watched his address or the 65th Anniversary of the Nomandy invasion just so I could time it on how long before he said the word "I".
It was the FIRST damn word out of his mouth.
Even Sarozy didn't say "I" until the very end of his speech.
Did you also notice him refer to he tobacco law today as "MY LAW"?
He is a frikkin megalomaniac.
He has three and a half years and the MSM to make America forget all that is going on know. :-(
Speaking of Czars, is anybody on The Hill trying to do anything about all the extra-legal czars he's appointed?
The media doesn’t enjoy unprotected sex with this president as much as they thought they would.
sissy girly boy
I saw how he became annoyed at the press today and thought just how much can this media take by looking like idiots by him.
One ABC reporter asked a question and bozo made him look stupid and some other reporters were laughing at him.
I saw Major Garrett not laughing and some others but if I was that ABC reporter I would make every report look bad for him.
Saying that I am not in the cult though.
When he bows and he says not I still say bow as they just go along with it as the sheep they are
How nice of Axelrod to take time off from the hard work of being a leader of the Jews destroying Israel and talk to Wolf.
Yes Obama, you are the only president of the USA.
Now put on your big boy pants, and remember that it is YOUR job to defend this nation when NUTJOBS threaten to launch a missile at Hawaii.
WHAT THE HECK?! Is that like ghetto talk...How embarrassing...he needs to go back to school and learn the correct grammar...a college grad?..PFFFTT give me a break!!
Along the lines of Boxer's "Call me Senator." They really ARE full of themselves aren't they?
Beside that he is a left wing liberal, a socialist, and a defeatist, this man is totally arrogant but at the same time totally insecure.
hey obama...you’re nothing but an arrogant, narcissist, fuppet puck
Harvard's Affirmative Action PhD program in action.
There is no king, but Barama!
Yep, he won the constellation prize...which means he needs to stop whining that he inherited it.
Where do you live?
Around here, all I can find are morons who are still blaming Bush for everything that is bad.
