(CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama repeatedly has called the United States a big, messy Democracy" in his many campaign stops around the country in recent weeks.
I know that a lot of times people wonder, gosh, you know, why did it take -- why did health care take so long [to pass]? Obama said at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) fundraiser in a private home in Providence, R.I on Monday. Well, this is not a monarchy we live in. This is a democracy. And its a big, messy democracy.
And theres supposed to be debate, and theres supposed to be contentiousness, and its supposed to be hard to make big changes, Obama said.
On Oct. 21, The Oregonian reported on Obama's trip to the state to stump for Oregons Democratic gubernatorial candidate, John Kitzhaber: "I told you during the campaign it was going to be hard," Obama said on Oct. 20. "Some of you didn't believe me. This is a big, messy democracy and the special interests won't go down without a fight, and sometimes it can wear you down."
The president also used that description at an Oct. 23 DCCC fund-raiser in Minneapolis: And so, yes, things don't happen as quickly as we want; theyre not always as smooth as people would want, Obama said. This is a big, messy democracy. Thats the nature of America. Its always been that way.
In an interview with New York Times reporter Peter Baker on Oct. 12, Obama once again used the expression to defend what his administration has accomplished in the two years since he was sworn in as president.
''I make no apologies for having set high expectations for myself and for the country, because I think we can meet those expectations,'' Obama said. ''Now, the one thing that I will say -- which I anticipated and can be tough -- is the fact that in a big, messy democracy like this, everything takes time. And we're not a culture that's built on patience.''
“fundraiser in a private home in Providence, R.I...”
Looks like obuma only has two friendly venues to spout his garbage: liberal colleges infested with bed-wetting college students and backyard barbecues.
#2 has to be the $30,000 a plate dinners in the extreme-liberal homes of billionaires ridden with white-guilt.
Come on over here to Seattle. I see them all the time.
With that definition you see what Obama is talking about ~ first, that he sees the Republican party, or any party, as being identical to the Democrats, and second, that he cannot comprehend that private individuals acting in concert with other private individuals who may well not be part of the same class, race, occupation category, or "interest group" might well band together to PUSH BACK AGAINST the Democrat party's "special interests".
That's why Obama and his running dog lackeys spend so much time trying to identify the "special interests" or "rich people" behind any particular source of opposition to their ideas.
In short, all Democrats are in a trick bag of special interests from which they cannot escape.
We must marginalize them in every way possible and then remove them from political influence in this country.
What exactly is a “special interest”?
I’d say that unions and those who make their money feeding at the trough of the Federal pig are more of a special interest than anyone Obama is referring to in that quote.
I am seeing a lot less zero stickers here in Austin. There are not near as many Elmer Fudd (bill white) for governor as I expected to see. I don't think Elmer has a chance next week.
