GOP takeover of Congress would mean 'hand-to-hand combat,' Obama warns

Reporting from Washington — A Republican majority in Congress would mean "hand-to-hand combat" on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy, President Obama warned Thursday.

Speaking on Michael Baisden's syndicated radio show, Obama also made a direct appeal to African Americans about the importance of the November vote, even though he's not on the ballot himself.

"The reason we won [in 2008] is because young people, African Americans, Latinos -- people who traditionally don't vote in high numbers -- voted in record numbers. We've got to have that same kind of turnout in this election," he said. "If we think that we can just vote one time, then we have a nice party at Obama's inauguration, and then we can kind of sit back and suddenly everything's going to change – that's just not how it works."

The Democrats have stabilized the economy alright - the same way that somebody in a coma is stable.

Almost time to vote from the rooftops!

It saddens me that I cannot even see the person who counters my vote, because that person either never existed or is dead.

This is unheard of. An American President advocating actual war between Parties. Ad you KNOW his evil minions will take this literally.

He needs to be Impeached ASAP. Hope the IRS thing pans out.
That was one of the issues the Dums used against NIXON.

Nope we seem to be pretty well stablized at 9-10 % unemployment and 1.5 trillion dollars of additional debt per year. A cadaver is pretty stable over the short term too.

The girly boy is getting desperate.

Did he have the ghetto LILT to his voice too?

Obama is really telling people to GET VIOLENT so the GOP voters are intimidated. THAT is his real message. He's setting the tone for it.

Every day I’m asking if this empty suit in the Oval office is just that. This idiot believes what everyone on his staff tells him, so he’s just regurgitating what he hears. I honestly don’t think he believes anything he says, esp. when it’s anything pro-American.

Will have to be “hand to hand”, as I can’t see any scenario where the GOP gets enough votes to override the Fuhrer’s VETO!

The men who wrote the constitution forsaw the possibility of this...when the poor, ignorant became the majority. The Senate was suppose to control these blocks...in the same way as the electoral college was to do the same.

And so, when I hear Obama calling for these particular blocks and excluding a call to us white folks...you know..."It's all about race".

No way are “his” voters gonna turn out - Fox (I think) did “man on the street” interviews this week, and they don’t give a crap, b/c the Magic Kenyan is not on the ballot, and they don’t even know who is...plus there is nothing cool about rolling out of bed to vote for a Dim whitie whose name you’ve never heard of.

Please watch this part of a video from 1:29 on to about 3:44. It’s from Perry Stone. “We’re Christians before we’re color.”

The idea of Mr. Obama in hand to hand combat with anyone about anything is a joke. He is a light weight who has probably never been in a real fight in his entire life. Classic: all hat, no horse.

Huh. Guess you should've had a different strategy in 2008, then, cuz that's pretty much what you told them to believe. That's the trouble when you rely on idiots. They end up acting like.... well, idiots.
