Obama to Voters: I Need "Friends" in Congress
CBS News & Associated Press ^ | 11/2/10 | Stav

Posted on 11/02/2010 2:16:53 PM PDT by Nachum

President Obama took to airwaves Tuesday in a series of radio interviews, geared in part to urban black audiences, in a last-ditch effort to energize a key Democratic constituency on Election Day. (Snip) Interrupting the music and chat of the stations' morning shows, Mr. Obama phoned in from the Oval Office to acknowledge voter frustration with the recession-bound economy -- and say that even though he's not on the ballot, his agenda is. "Across the board, thing have gotten better over the last two years," Obama said on KPWR. "The question is, can we keep that up? But we can

The man is delusional and needs to be removed from office.

Let the congressional investigations begin.

I am hearing from the libs “we need to work TOGETHER” “we need to reach ACROSS THE AISLE.”

The left’s definition of reaching across the aisle: total capitulation.

Yeah, we need to reach across the aisle — and grab and burn all the crap legislation that has been shoveled down the American people’s throat for the last 2 years!

Repeal EVERYTHING!

Yeap, thought so.

So the best way to start that process is to call everyone who disagrees with you an “enemy.”

You had friends in Congress, Obammy. Your brilliant political strategy resulted in many of them being kicked out of their jobs. Kinda ironic.

Its interesting he’s going for the only voters the Dems have left: blacks - and its too little, too late.

How’s that for an appeal to swing voters?

When it comes to being a pathetic loser, Obummer takes the prize!

NO.

Maybe Obama can force a fellow Kenyan cokehead into Congress, or perhaps another terrorist who enjoys killing police officers.

Obama is such a pathetic lowlife, and his "friends" are just as bad, if not worse.

He’s already got Reggie Love.

Tune: Crazy Love - with apologies to Van Morrison:

I can hear his heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time he smiles
And when I come to him that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to him like a river's song

Chorus:
He give me love, love, love, love, Reggie Love
He give me love, love, love, love, Reggie Love

He's got a fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
And when I come to him when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like a thief

Chorus:
Yes I need him in the daytime
Yes I need him in the night
Yes I want to throw my arms around him
Kiss him hug him kiss him hug him tight

And when I'm returning from so far away
He gives me some sweet lovin' brighten up my day
Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me feel whole
Yes it makes me mellow down into my soul

Chorus:
He give me love, love, love, love, Reggie Love
He give me love, love, love, love, Reggie Love

...geared in part to urban black audiences

The funny part is that these people have been systematically excluded from most districts and gerrymandered into their own special districts. Alabama has a large portion of its minorities grouped into one district. The Dems have managed over the past few years to lose just about ALL of the others. We have one race this year that is competitive. (One with a big city and on the other side of the state from the gerrymandered district that soaked up so many minorities from the other big cities.)

Minority turnout does not help the Dems much in most competitive races.

So the trip to India is to determine if he can outsource Congress?
He has called America the enemy. Shouldn’t that clearly make him an enemy to America or is that too much for the bumper sticker party?

Yup. The chickens are staying home to roost today.

He really is (and does).

Americans are coming together in a historical revolt to tell this SOB to take his agenda and shove it...and he still refuses to consider the significance of it.

When it becomes apparent to him that his narcissistic supply has been cut off, he will either crash or turn ugly. At this point, I can't call it (but I am leaning toward "turn ugly").
