Obama: Itís Republicansí fault I havenít changed Washington
Washington Examiner ^ | SEPTEMBER 11, 2010 | DAVID FREDDOSO

Posted on 09/11/2010 4:59:55 PM PDT by RobinMasters

From President Obama’s press conference, a bit of self-righteous straw-man creation followed by blaming others:

Q: How have you changed Washington?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’ll tell you how we’ve changed Washington. Prior to us getting here, as I indicated before, you had a set of policies that were skewed toward special interests, skewed towards the most powerful, and ordinary families out there were being left behind. And since we’ve gotten here, whether it’s making sure that folks who can’t get health insurance because of preexisting condition can now get health insurance, or children who didn’t have coverage now have coverage; whether it’s making sure that credit card companies have to actually post in understandable ways what your credit card rates are and they can’t jack up existing balances in arbitrary ways; whether it’s making sure that we’ve got clean water and clean air for future generations; whether it’s making sure that tax cuts go to families that need it as opposed to folks who don’t — on a whole range of issues over the last 18 months, we’ve put in place policies that are going to help grow a middle class and lay the foundation for long-term economic growth.

Obama stepped up a number of years ago and said, "I can lead. I can persuade. I can manage people and events. Put me in charge, and I can make things happen."

He got what he wanted, but he has not been able to achieve these goals.

And like any good leader, his excuse is: "It's the other guy's fault." [/s]

Having a socialist president is bad enough...having a WHINY socialist president is totally over the top.

He should go back and run for Daley’s job, though I don’t know if he could handle it...

Sit on the sidelines?

Rather, sit outside the locked doors.

...and I think that some of the Republican leaders made a decision, we’re going to sit on the sidelines and let the Democrats try to solve it.

Well...Zero...you, and Pelosi, and Reid said you could. You promised you could. You said the Dems would turn things around. So we sat, and waited, and watched. You lied.

This Obama clown is a real piece of work. He's got absolute veto proof majorities in both Houses and it's all the fault of those nasty Republicans.

What a twerp.

I hate to say it, he may come unglued in the next 50 something days...

He knows he is going to take a drubbing and his agenda is done.

His speech in OH, his comments on 9-11 and now this, he is a rambling fool. Not good, our enemies are taking note..

Hey, little girl. You wanted the job so bad that there wasn’t a lie too big to tell, a vote that wasn’t too expensive to buy, and a law too sever to ignore.....so quit your belly-aching and do the job that you were fortunate enough to win. If you can’t do that, then shut the hell up, quit and get the hell out of our White House! A$$hole!

I can tell you what has changed. Black now get afree ride.

No investigation of ACORN
Black Pnthers who had weapons at a polling place set free.

Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters and the scholarship girl still in Congress.

Muslims now held in higher regard than Christians.
