Obama assails GOP on clouded final campaign push (Republicans "gotta sit in back")
Yahoo News ^ | 10/25/10 | DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent

Posted on 10/25/2010 6:59:19 PM PDT by Chi-townChief

WOONSOCKET, R.I. – President Barack Obama attacked Republicans with gusto Monday as he plunged into a final week of midterm election campaigning, but his party's prognosis remained darkened by the feeble economy and his itinerary was designed largely to minimize losses. Nor was his greeting totally friendly in a state where Obama has pointedly declined to endorse his party's candidate for governor. Obama can "take his endorsement and shove it," declared Democrat Frank Caprio, battling Republican-turned-independent Lincoln Chafee in a Rhode Island gubernatorial race rated tight in the polls. Chafee endorsed Obama during the 2008 campaign for the White House.

In a little more than five hours in the state, Obama was booked for a factory tour and for a pair of fundraisers that party officials said would bring in $500,000. He said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

“...they can come for the ride, but they have to sit in back.” I don’t think so. Middle class families make up the Republicans.

Wow! In the Oval Office, isn’t there a playbook explaining “How To ACT Presidential”????

All newbies should have a crash course on any new job.

Guess this guy missed all that while he was playing golf and making vacation plans.
He makes me want to PUKE!

Nya-AH! Rosa Parks says I can sit anywhere I choose! And Martin agrees with her, too.

Yeah, he’s a real class act.

Imagine if Bush, McCain, Palin, or Reagan had said a thing like that. Even if race was not involved they would have screamed it was a racist statement.

Anyone of any persuasion who actually bought into the 2008 nonsense about 0 leading us to a higher plane and bringing us all together has now been proven to be a total sap.

Just think what a despicable piece of filth you would have to be for Obama to decline to endorse a member of his own party who’s running against you.

I think it needs to be remembered (accurately) so it is not repeated. This current batch of idiots who voted him into office sadly won't be the last batch of idiots.

While I would gladly give up my seat for a lady or a child, I will not ride in the back of any vehicle piloted by such a crass and classless leader.

The presidency has been degraded beyond anything I’ve seen in my 5 decades.

Major disconnect. The Obama Legacy.

Obama is typical of his class. Remember, in an era when almost all Africans were still half naked and lived in homes made from branches and cowdung his father killed himself in an automobile accident.

Then, there's his American grandmother ~ she was a banker.

Political discourse has devolved to this shameful stage. "Sit in the back cracker. Because Obama is in the White House now and its paypack time for all you white folk." That's what he means.

Is this what African Americans struggled for hundreds of years to accomplish? To still be poor and marginalized but stick it to the white population. What a betrayal of everything we've fought for.

He sounds more and more like Robert Mugabe every day. Any day now he will start confiscating all the farms in the country to give to his supporters Oh wait..that's pretty much what he already did with General Motors.

I have said from the time he was elected that we are all on the same bus, and those who disagree with his ideology are on the back of the bus. I am surprised, however, that Obama was stupid enough to admit it. I wonder if America is listening because they sure as heck weren’t during the election.

“Racial contentiousness is what he wants.”
This is just crazy. It's not that I disagree with you, but he is mixed race. He is as white as he is black. Why does he reject the part of himself, his white grandparents, who raised him in a seemingly privileged way.

He’s coming unhinged and the real Barry is finally coming out of hiding. Barry hates everyone except his most sycophantic supporters. I don’t recall any President calling for citizens that don’t vote for them to be treated as second class citizens. He’s a disgrace domestically and an embarrassment internationally.

Gee, Obama, what kind of mental imagery are you trying to use?

Who else had to sit in the back of the bus?

Are you saying Republicans should be treated like southern blacks when the Jim Crow laws were in place? You want conservatives to be treated like 2nd class citizens?

I think Obama’s really starting to unravel, mentally. He cannot separate rejection of policy with rejection of himself.

“Gotta,” “Haftuh,” “Gunnah.” Did he learn to speak like that at Columbia or Harvard? Another secret from of his mysterious past, I suppose. I wonder if the guy ever thinks about what it takes to be worthy of the office he holds. Or the sacrifices made by so many for that office even to exist. I doubt it.

You think anyone in the RNC has the guts to produce a “we won” commercial?

“America has spoken. We the people don’t want socialism. We the people don’t want national healthcare. We the people don’t want to bail out private industry. We the people don’t want cap and tax. We the people don’t want to have trillion dollar deficits. Mr. President, We won.”

I am not surprised Obama acts like this. Presidents usually know how to act, build coalitions, and conduct themselves publically. This comes from experience they required to hold the highest office in the land.... until Obama.

Obama has little experience politically. He won his state senate seat and senate seat by means of the Chicago machine. He won the Presidency with the help of the media and glitter. He has little life experience and by any measure failed to change anything as a community agitator. He is a typical Chicago machine politician and that does not translate to national politics.

I bet most democrats cringe when Obama approaches a podium. He really has no clue about the mood of the nation and this statement today is another “the police acted stupidly” moment. It should never happen to an experienced politician of either party.

Most Americans think both parties “broke the system” and we don’t want jive talk partisanship. The same shrill partisanship that he promised to transcend. Does anyone think he can successfully work with the opposition to do anything? I don’t. He never has before.

Gridlock here we come.

Obama always tries to fan the flame of racial tension without seeming to directly do so. He always seeks to get a rise out of whitey to make the GOP look bad and back off.

Evidently the car thing wasn’t big enough. He’s now onto the bus - you know, the bus he’s been busy throwing everyone under? I guess people that consider themselves Republicans are now supposed to sit in the back of the bus and also drink out of the R water fountains.....

Okay, he didn’t say the water fountain thing but can that be far behind? Maybe he wants a separate dining room for people in the Congress that have the R.

Yeah buddy he’s really united everyone ~ and the seas are receding too, global warming is stopping, people love us all over the world - peace has broken out everywhere ...*faint*
