Is it me or is he stooping to the level of the paid sheeple in the audience by talking like he's some kind of jive *ss?
He’s trying to do a “charismatic preacher” routine.
He is just communicating in his native tongue.
He makes me sick. I wish someone would throw a rotten tomato right in his ugly face. What a panderer!
I wasn’t watching or listening.
Sounds pathetic, like Hillary’s fake Southern accent.
Hussein never gets my audience.
Ewww, no. What is it rambling on about in its halting, dictatorial tones now?
There he goes - blaming everyone else. Oh, I hate this man.
He just blamed Bush!
Geez, I’m stunned! *sarc*
“I’m going to keep fighting every single day” - except when I am on vacation.
Watching a ball game.
I trying to force myself to listen to this A-wipe, but I can’t do it for more than about 10 seconds at a time (followed by 30 seconds of ‘mute’.
He IS some kind of jive *ss !
“My grandparents taught me...”
“A job is about more than a paycheck...”
“I learned that lesson when the steel plant closed...”
(Somewhere out there stoners are listening in the basement and thinking, ‘Right on. A job’s about more than a paycheck...that’s why I don’t have one...”
It is his rabble rousing speach - lies and all of them loud - Obambi needs the crowd adulation to feed his ego. He tells them what they want to hear just to get the crowd cheering!
Obama had to rush through the speech so he wouldn’t be late for his tee time. “Watch this drive”
>> by talking like he’s some kind of jive *ss?
Is the President of the US speaking jive again?
Here’s what he’s rambling about;
But there are some folks in Washington who see things differently. When it comes to just about everything we’ve done to strengthen the middle class and rebuild our economy, almost every Republican in Congress said no. Even where we usually agree, they say no. They think it’s better to score political points before an election than actually solve problems. So they said no to help for small businesses. No to middle-class tax cuts. No to unemployment insurance. No to clean energy jobs. No to making college affordable. No to reforming Wall Street. Even as we speak, these guys are saying no to cutting more taxes for small business owners. I mean, come on! Remember when our campaign slogan was Yes We Can? These guys are running on No, We Can’t, and proud of it. Really inspiring, huh?
To steal a line from our old friend, Ted Kennedy: what is it about working men and women that they find so offensive?
When we passed a bill earlier this summer to help states save the jobs of hundreds of thousands of teachers, nurses, police officers and firefighters that were about to be laid off, they said no to that, too. In fact, the Republican who’s already planning to take over as Speaker of the House dismissed them as government jobs that weren’t worth saving. Not worth saving? These are the people who teach our kids. Who keep our streets safe. Who put their lives on the line for our own. I don’t know about you, but I think those jobs are worth saving.
We made sure that bill wouldn’t add to the deficit, either. We paid for it by finally closing a ridiculous tax loophole that actually rewarded corporations for shipping jobs and profits overseas. It let them write off the taxes they pay foreign governments even when they don’t pay taxes here. How do you like that middle class families footing tax breaks for corporations that create jobs somewhere else! Even a lot of America’s biggest corporations agreed the loophole should be closed, that it wasn’t fair but the man with the plan to be Speaker is already aiming to open it up again.
Bottom line is, these guys refuse to give up on the economic philosophy they peddled for most of the last decade. You know that philosophy: you cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires; you cut rules for special interests; you cut working folks like you loose to fend for yourselves. They called it the ownership society. What it really boiled down to was: if you couldn’t find a job, or afford college, or got dropped by your insurance company you’re on your own.
Well, that philosophy didn’t work out so well for working folks. It didn’t work out so well for our country. All it did was rack up record deficits and result in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
I’m not bringing this up to re-litigate the past; I’m bringing it up because I don’t want to re-live the past. It would be one thing if Republicans in Washington had new ideas or policies to offer; if they said, you know, we’ve learned from our mistakes. We’ll do things differently this time. But that’s not what they’re doing. When the leader of their campaign committee was asked on national television what Republicans would do if they took over Congress, he actually said they’d follow the exact same agenda as they did before I took office. The exact same agenda.
So basically, they’re betting that between now and November, you’ll come down with a case of amnesia. They think you’ll forget what their agenda did to this country. They think you’ll just believe that they’ve changed. These are the folks whose policies helped devastate our middle class and drive our economy into a ditch. And now they’re asking you for the keys back.
Do you want to give them the keys back? Me neither. And do you know why? Because they don’t know how to drive! At a time when we’re just getting out of the ditch, they’d pop it in reverse, let the special interests ride shotgun, and hit the gas, careening right back into that ditch.
Well, I refuse to go backwards, Milwaukee. And that’s the choice America faces this fall. Do we go back to the policies of the past? Or do we move forward? I say we move forward. America always moves forward. And we are going to keep moving forward today.”
Is he employing what Harry Reid would call his “Negro Dialect”?
