Obama relegates Republicans "to the back of the bus."
Beaufort Observer ^ | 10-26-10

Posted on 10/26/2010 5:40:17 AM PDT by SJackson

We'll make a prediction here and now: If Republicans win like most polls are projecting they will do so next Tuesday they will spend the next two years being attacked by Barack Obama. He's already started.

While he claims he wants to work together for the good of the country, he has spent the last two weeks demeaning and castigating Republicans at every chance he's gotten. But today (10-25-10) it reached a new low. He used a racially charged pejorative that no other national leaders would ever be able to get by with as far as the Elite Media is concerned. 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."

And this is how he plans to get cooperation from the victors?

Well, with due respect, he didn’t throw them UNDER the bus, that’s good at least he told them to go to the back. I wonder if this was on his teleprompter.

“but they gotta sit in back”

Yeah, isnt’ our illegal alien White House resident funny. That will get the races back together, won’t it. What an ass!

Don’t forget, it’s “pay back whitey” time in the White House and at the AG office. Negro thugs with clubs in their hands, car trunks stuffed with ballots waiting for release where needed, and dead people and illegal aliens voting are what we deserve for our slave holding past . . . not that 660,000 dead Civil War soldiers didn’t quite pay enough, but we have a filthy racist in our White House and his minions all over Washington, D.C.

We’ve come a long way!

He really has gotten nasty with his rhetoric over the past couple weeks. Telling Latinos to vote against their “enemies.” Telling Republicans that their place is to simply ride along in the back with him and the Dems. It really is a revelation into how he thinks. We all know that he is a hardcore Socialist but he always kept the mask up of moderation and bipartisanship for the general public. Now the mask is slipping.

The problem is that he is indicating that he is not going to move to the center. He is not going to change at all—and this will leave us in dangerous shape moving forward.

Between this and his pronouncement yesterday that revealed his own view of power - to be used to reward friends and punish enemies.

Saw the clip, no this was not on his prompter—he stammerd himself right into this one on his own.

He ALWAYS exposes himself and his limited ability to articulate and think when he wanders off his prompter.

Even if the image was a car and not a bus (giving Barry any benefit possible here), it was still a divisive and belligerent thing to say toward those whose cooperation he supposedly wants and needs. Even without the racist “back of the bus” ingredient, it was a startling putdown of the most punkish kind.

This is extremely inflammatory.....”back of the bus” was not funny - we were told....now Obama uses it in jest?

When is a journalist going to call him out on this? If a white person said this, they would get fired, castigated, and all the rest.

What a vile pos OWeBama is. And he isn’t “demeaning Replublicans”, he’s slandering them. He has done NOTHING BUT demean the office of the presidency since the day after being elected (remember, according to the media he started governing/ruling the day after the November 2008 election).

Telling Republicans to “sit at the back of the bus” is his way of being bipartisan and reaching across the isle. What a fraud OWEBamaa is. OWeBama will go down as the worst president in our country’s long history.

I expect massive fraud. By any rational accounting, Republicans are far, far ahead. But the media is working overtime to tell us that the races have tightened and that the Democrats are making a comeback.

I expect 150% turnouts in some locations.

Yep, and here’s an article about him campaigning at a Democratic Socialists of America in 1996:

"They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

Hmmm .....???? Okay. Thought about it and I don't have a problem with that remark.

Because when I was a teen and lived in Chicago I always sat at the back of the bus if I could. First of all you can see whose comin' at ya (Priority #1). Secondly, it was easier getting out the back door at your stop. And lastly, you can be 'mischievous' if so desired. Not that I ever was (honest injun).

Even today, if I have to take the Metra Train to Downtown Chicago I always get in a Car near the end of the train. And I sit near the back of that car. Old habits die hard I guess.

Move to the center? This guy never had any idea of moving to the center, he is a marxist...there is no compromise with them as there is none with the devil.

This guy and his ilk must be driven from office and burned at the stake of public opinion. I go back to that comment raised by that CNBC commentator over a year ago: who here wants to pay for your neighbor’s house (or insurance, car, credit card bills, student loans, illicit drugs etc). I DO NOT. I recall a call Limbaugh got one time about some guy whining about health care and how good it will be to have national paid health care. Limbaugh said, why don’t you just go over to your neighbor’s house and ask them to pay for your health care? Guy said, he did not think they would do that; Limbaugh said and neither do I want to pay for it and hung up.

(o)bama wants to put the government gun to the head of anyone who has been remotely successful and take their legally obtained assets to pass along to someone else knowing the recipients will probably be in the majority and they will keep his type in power through the vote. The only compromise in him is the size of gun he intends to use.

Imagine the outrage if it had been a white Republican President who said the Dems would have to sit in the back. But this will go largely unnoticed by the MSM.

This is a very telling remark - along with others he has made in recent weeks. He’s trying to light a fire. But once it is lit he might not be able to control it. The President is the President of the entire nation, not just the president of his party. I hope the republican leadership, should they take the House (and Senate?!) remember these quotes and understand the esteem in which they are held by the President. Let’s not ‘reach across the aisle’ for racists and half-presidents.

What a stupid and racist comment for a President to make. What an idiot if he thinks elected officials should be told to shut up and not be allowed to represent the people.

What until that black man has to sit in the back of the bus once the Rpeublicans take control of the House and maybe even the Senate.
