Skip to comments.O rips the American way
Posted on 12/25/2009 2:06:12 AM PST by Cincinatus
Increasingly unloved and ridiculed from both sides, a new and embittered President Obama is emerging this Christmas season as he begins a badly needed vacation in Hawaii.
In an interview on the eve of yesterday's health-care ram-through, Obama expressed his deep frustration over the legislative process.
The president accused Republicans of abuse for employing the very rules that make the Senate the "world's greatest deliberative body."
"If this pattern continues, you're going to see an inability on the part of America to deal with big problems in a very competitive world, and other countries are going to start running circles around us," Obama warned.
What he is saying is that other governments around the world -- those tyrannical states that do not share our respect for the minority -- are better forms of government, better equipped to compete in this modern world.

is this guy for real? as soon as he breaks a sweat he beeches like a 5 yr old... then he takes off to a big sand lot called hawaii.
One thing in our favor is this guys political incompetence.
He has done it right from the beginning.....some people are just waking up.
Starting to? He spooked me since he ran for the Senate. The GOP bless their hearts threw Alan Keyes under the bus to get this Dictator wannabe elected and now see what we have.
Gotta admit, I imagined many awful scenarios when he won. Not only are things worse, this is one thing I didn't forsee--how thin-skinned and LAZY this guy actually is.
We pelt Bush for some of his reactions on 9-11--this guy would have been under the desk, weeping.
“This guy is starting to creep me out....”
Just think, 18 months ago I was thinking that the absolute worst thing that America could face was Hillary as president. Be careful what you wish for
“This is a frightening new side of Barack Obama. “ (from the article)
The author apparently knows little of Obama.
It took Hitler almost 12 years to start blaming his own people for his failings. Adolph would probably tell Maobama, “man up sonny”.
The only two positive traits that Obama has are that he's thin-skinned and LAZY. Imagine the damage that an initially popular tyrant could have done if he had possessed the energy to destroy our country quickly. His lack of energy has given the country time to realize just how much we despise everything the druggie stands for. Meanwhile, every time he retreats from the emotional trauma of his delicate hurt feelings, it leaves his followers without a leader. I wish Hitler and Stalin had possessed the same fatal flaws as our socialist dictator-wannabe.
You can’t blame this spoiled little affirmative action pantywaist brat for being upset. He didn’t realize that the Constitution would apply to HIM too.
Constitutional law professor is another of the lies we were told about him.
Imagine if something really bad happens. What kind of childish hissy fit will he throw then?
I fear for our country and the world with this punk as “commander-in-chief”.
You took the words right out of my mouth, Pollster1. If Obama wasn’t as lazy and stupid as he is, things would be much, much worse. That’s the problem the left has. They have the media in their pocket and the media is absolutely blind to any faults of any on the left, which allows them to put a lazy stupid Obama in office... and to a certain extent, they are now stuck with him. In that sense, Hillary might have been worse. Which one of Obama’s initiatives would Hillary have not pushed for? And I bet she would have pushed harder, and more competently.
After the election I said he has the potential to become the worst president in American history. His comments/actions have nearly cemented that legacy in his first year. The rest of the sleeper socialists/statists in the Senate have floated to the top like pond scum and each of them deserve the same ridicule/disrespect. Many were in our midst long before Barry. They are just as...if not more evil.
"Greatest deliberative body" my a_ _. Like many other organizations in America it has been turned into a stomping ground for socialists. Watch how they work. Listen to what they say.
Excellent point. He’s the most listless communist revolutionary ever, thank God.
Early on many thought we were maniac nuts, but what we said turns out to be true.We did our research. JUST LOOK AT OBAMA"S conduct in Kenya in 2006/2007. His election strategy for his ORANGE PARTY cousin Odinga resulted in intertribal genocide. Obama is a BAD PIECE OF SH*T! And now people see it. What to do? This could get really ugly.Just like Kenya. Creep you out? I been creeped out since May of 2007.
The reason that Obama is so lazy is because he never had to work hard or struggle in his life.
He came from a upper middle class background and had his way paved through college by way of affirmation action. Early in his career as a politician, he had most of his opponents thrown off the ballot for technicalities. There is ample evidence that he didn’t even write his autobiography.
Obama has had it easy all of his life and now he’s reached the point where not everybody is going to bow down to him and kiss his butt. And he is acting like the spoiled child that he is.
Obama won last year's historic election by rising above that nonsense.
What a confusing piece.
The guy contradicts his main point at the end of the article.
Hussein is out to destroy America from the inside. His actions have proven it, and the accusation is hardly "nonsense."
I made a FR comment here several days ago about the sumbitch being LAZY. Never produced jack anywhere he’s been - all hot air whilst ‘organizing communities’. Hot air ain’t a product, IMHO. The turd couldn’t even write his OWN autobiography!
I suspect that’s why he and the Wookie wouldn’t be too disappointed if there is no second term. Being a good Chief Executive IS hard work, and they aren’t into HARD. The soft, cushy perks are pretty nice, tho.
Remember the Wookie’s comment to Barack on election night: “All our worries are over.” By which she meant an ex prez is set up for life with speaking fees (more hot air) and office/scurity subsidies.
The Obama fascination has obviously worn off to the majority of America.
And the only reason his caravan is still moving after its run out of gas is because its running downhill, when it runs out of momentum it will surely stop.
Right this minute he is sleeping in Hawaii, he has distanced himself from the Whitehouse and has distanced himself from America.
There is no way he can build up poll numbers unless he were to give every American in the US a $1,000 check. He thinks he can buy anything he wants and so far he has done just that.
A pattern of inability and confusion creeps everyone out.
Case in point:
"Carol Platt Liebau was first female managing editor of the Harvard Law Review;
It reminds me a little bit of my experience with him when he was president of the Harvard Law Review. You know, I hesitated to say a lot about this during the campaign because I really thought maybe it wasn't fair. That maybe, finally, when he got to be President, this would be a job big enough to engage and hold Barack Obama's sustained interest, because really, is there a bigger job out here?
[W]hen he was at the HLR you did get a very distinct sense that he was the kind of guy who much more interested in being the president of the Review, than he was in doing anything as president of the Review.
A lot of the time he quote/unquote "worked from home", which was sort of a shorthand - and people would say it sort of wryly - shorthand for not really doing much. He just wasn't around. Most of the day to day work was carried out by the managing editor of the Review, my predecessor, a great guy called Tom Pirelli whose actually going to be one of the assistant attorney generals now.
He's the one who did most of the day to day work. Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen. Occasionally he would drop in he would talk to people, and then he'd leave again as though his very arrival had been a benediction in and of itself, but not very much got done.
So, you know, you see that and you think, gosh, maybe that's the way the guy operates, hut then you figure ok, obviously he always had his eye on bigger and better things.
But now he's President...there really isn't a bigger or better thing."
I was, of course, being facetious.
If the kenyan is a Constitutional law professor then I’m Miss America.
And symptomatic of the problem are the surroundings Obama has chosen for his vacation. This is a vacation that most Americans could only dream of, and much of the cost is being borne by the taxpayer. I can understand his preference for Hawaii (over a place like Camp David), and I don't begrudge him some time off (as Democrats did with Bush), but while many Americans are in dire straights financially, Obama should not be imagining himself as royalty, and acting as if he were king.
An inability too deal with imaginary problems, Y2K, global cooling, global warming, climate change etc.???
Are you ready for a visit from 0bama’s Army? The 0ne will be mobilizing his drones in the new year. Be nice but BE READY. Meet them at the door with a camera - video is better. I personally will have my pistol on my hip.
Obama and his cronies made the huge mistake of assuming that simply because millions voted for him, they all share his socialist world view. The fact is most Dems love money and material possessions just as much as we so-called “greedy” Republicans. Unfortunately the semi-sane Democrats are not in control of their party.
A speech here and there, and he's all set to sit on his ass in Hawaii.
I never thought I’d wish Hilary was president.
Rape is not an act of sex, it is an act of power and control and we are being raped.
Doesn't anyone SEE this ?
zero's a n bastard rapist and it wouldn't surprize me if he was a switch hitter, neither.
With all this mental derangement in power positions ...
The claim helped innoculate him early on, from issues his candidacy had, and his Presidency still has despite the wall of denial and derision, with Constitutionality.
It also added a degree of substance to a very thin resumé and a nonexistent personal history, outside of that ghostwritten work of fiction, Dreams Of My Father.
There was more to his rise than mere affirmative action. He was singled out and groomed. His past is being guarded to this day due to the influence of those who elevated him.
He's the very epitome of a Manchurian Candidate. It's not just partisan hyperbole to point that out. He's also not the most emotionally mature, nor the most emotionally stable individual, but is one with powerful delusions of grandeur, and one who has attained what is inarguably the most powerful position in the world today.
There actually is much to fear, not from the man himself, who will collapse like the house of cards that he is, but from the consequences of his actions, flailing on the way down, and the from the actions of those who put him in a position to be where he is in the first place.
Bookmark good post
bless their hearts = bunch of idiots.
This author -- like so many -- has good insight but completely chokes on his political correctness: He wants to be darn sure that nobody confuses him with those yahoos who talk about Manchurian candidates and such. What difference really does it make if Obama was deliberately programed to embed himself and then destroy the American system or if he just absorbed a relentless anti-Americanism and is now just doing what comes naturally. The author is right, his word were frightening. Damn frightening. (I am referring to Wednesday's PBS News Hour interview, which is available online. It was stunning. He may have said pretty much the same thing in his Washington Post interview and elsewhere.)
He’s been groomed and programed since he hit high school.
I, too, am more afraid of the machine that put there than he himself.
His entire life(and michelle’s) have been about “movin’ on up”. He was willing to do anything to get there.
Those who put him there played him like a fiddle. They are accomplishing their agenda without having to reveal themselves.
If you thought Bill Clinton was a popular ex-pres, wait until this guy hits the campus circuit. He’ll not demand huge appearance fees, he’s gonna’ charge admission, and want a piece of the gate.
I just hope this country survives him.
Translation: Hugo has a better idea.
Whether or not Obama is a natural born citizen, he is exactly what the founding fathers had in mind when they inserted that requirement. Obama views the US like an envious and resentful Third Worlder. He is not a product of traditional America and traditional values. The founders knew that requirement was needed, as Obama proves most every day.
This is his third vacation in a year. Must be nice to be King and Messiah.
I'll be thrilled to get a paid vacation next year, which will be my first in three years. For the record, I don't count the six months I spent unemployed during 2009.
I have a lot to celebrate today. Besides my family, I'm extremely thankful to have started a two-year contract job this week. I'll be praying for similar good fortune to those that are hurting during these difficult times.
The first time I saw him in the senate I knew he was a goon. (I thought Farrakhan) Had no idea at the time he would run for president.
Never ignore your gut instinct.
The one thing that the “O” truly hates, is the Constitution. It is the one thing that stands between him & becoming another Castro. He is a hate filled human being. And it is becoming more obvious by the day.Look for him to try & circumvent the Constitution anyway he can in the coming months.
Barack the Jerk blames everyone but himself. Less than admirable. In fact, I don’t see what any voters ever saw in him, ever.
