Obama says he Ignored Beck rally
MSNBC ^ | August 29, 2010 | Brian Williams

Posted on 08/29/2010 3:55:59 PM PDT by jern

Obama says he ignored Beck rally

He seemed intent on casting himself as above the political fray, saying he had more important work to do than to engage in the back and forth of the political “silly season.”

For example, Obama said he did not watch any of Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally Saturday on the National Mall.

“It’s not surprising that somebody like a Mr. Beck is able to stir up a certain portion of the country. That's been true throughout our history,” he said. But “I’m making decisions that are not necessarily good for the nightly news and not good for the next election, but for the next generations.”

What if a President said THIS: It’s not surprising that somebody like a Dr. King is able to stir up a certain portion of the country. That’s been true throughout our history,” he said.

Of course he won’t watch Beck!

He’ll order one of his lackies to do the ‘grisly’ deed./sarc

That will be in November when you are made to look more than just silly. Silly? Yeah, in a kind of wispy, little Urkelish way, “silly” is how you will look.

I certainly hope The Won continues to ignore “certain portions of the country, history and the “silly season.”

His arrogance will bite him in the behind.

I think not! I doubt the next few generations are going to appreciate paying for Obama's failed policy decisions and enjoying a poorer standard of living than their parents or grandparents.

” Obama says he Ignored Beck rally “

Makes perfect sense - Obama has ignored virtually every important event during his presidency...

So, therefore, by ignoring it, Mr O has just confirmed that the Beck Rally was an important event....

Ummm...by mandating that future generations will have to pay for your crazy-ass healthcare plan, on top of the deficit of trillions. Yeah, great foresight there, champ.

A third of a million American people rally, and he "ignores" them. He doesn't, of course, he marginalizes them. And then he yaps about characters who "stir up a portion of the country" -- which was how he manged to get his scrawney, useless ass elected.

And then goes on to ascend the throne of the potentate of humanity and shaper of destinies.

How long, O Lord, must we suffer this idiot?

Yes, he is making decisions for "the next generation" alright.

And yes, he knows all about stirring up a certain portion of the country.

By the way, it's him who now seems to be bugged about his birth certificate. No one brought it up - he did.

This is a great quote - very telling. I actually think he wants everyone to spend all their time with his "birth certificate" plastered on their forehead.

Well of course he did. He ignores Americans and does whatever the heck he wants! We witnessed it first hand over the healthcare bill, to name one isnstance. Why did this reporter even feel the need to ask something we all know the answer to.

He ignores at his and his party’s peril.

After Zeroman appeared on The View, Neil Cavuto observed that Obama first claimed to never listen to any of the criticism but then proceeded to enumerate every critical thing that anybody ever said about him.

Funny thing about “ignoring” something. It means that a lot of emotional energy was expended pretending the “ignored” object does not exist.

he’s not going to run again.

what President would say that he doesn’t care about the nightly
news or the next election but “generations” from now?
Perhaps they are principled but they would never say it aloud.

Um, we can repeal all your crap sir, it’s in the rules!

“It’s not surprising that somebody like a Mr. Beck is able to stir up a certain portion of the country. That's been true throughout our history,”

The really outrageous thing about this comment is that the Beck rally was not political in nature. It was a simple, non-political, non-partisan celebration of patriotism, our American military, and Christianity. And the President of the United States refers to such a rally as "stirring" up people? This bastard is sick, sick, sick. I hope this sound bite comes back to haunt him in 2012.
