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.
