Obama looks to set tone with post-election press conference
The Hill ^ | 11/2/10 | Sam Youngman

Posted on 11/02/2010 2:43:22 PM PDT by Nachum

President Obama will hold a press conference Wednesday to offer his response to the mid-term election. The news conference, announced Tuesday morning, shows the White House does not intend for the dust to settle from Tuesday's midterms before trying to define the narrative for the next Congress. Polls show Democrats face an avalanche of losses, with Republicans poised to take back the House and make significant gains in the Senate. Obama will speak to the press early Wednesday afternoon. Before taking questions, Obama is likely to offer an opening statement calling for Republicans

Obama has already declared war on incoming Republicans. Will he now pretend like he didn’t? When will Democrats realize that words have meanings and people remember? When will we have a president that will stand by his words?

How about simply making a statement that he will work hard to find ways to work with the new Congress? Would that touch of grace really be that difficult?

Didn’t he make some weird azz statement after the Brown victory, saying it was a vote for him or something?

He’ll come out and spin the entire thing. You watch.

Right.....let me see if I understand this. The message is going to be that for the good of the Country, the Republicans need to work with Premier Hussein.

That does not portend well for the months ahead, and it ought to dispel any remaining notions that anyone has that this (P)resident is going to pivot to the middle like Clinton did, and that he thinks he is ready to go bare knuckles against the whole Country.

Game on.

What if he had a press conference and no one came?

I can hear his opening statement now:

We have the results of this election and I am happy to see the revolution that I led is still continuing. The people of this country want change and I am happy to have been at the fore front of that movement. I have pushed through health care, cap and trade, reduced our nuclear stockpile, and these are just the beginning to what I know I can accomplish if we work together. I challenge the republicans to join me in my endeavor to make this nation blah blah blah interspaced with more I’s. By the time he finishes with his statement, there will be about five minutes for questions from reporters who have been prompted what to ask.

What Obama says after the elections needs to be contrasted with what the heck he has been saying. Do you realize he never spoke to republican leadership since taking office for over a year? That is stunning tyrannical intended agenda setting right there. How dare he and the leftist media pretend interest in bipartisanship now. Go fish.

Spending $200 million a day for his trip to India has already set the tone. He’s sucking off the American taxpayers like the wannabe dictator that he is.

Bingo.

FUBO. He’ll call for “bipartisanship”, which is a code word for Republicans rolling over. It’s Lucy pulling away the football from Charlie Brown every single time.

What is going to be nauseating is that the MSM is going to lavish praise on Obama’s call for “working together” when everyone knows he doesn’t have a single bone in his body that is willing to work with those to his political right. He’s a proto-Marxist and that sure as heck isn’t going to change tomorrow.

I’m betting the word “ignorance” will be used in some way to reference voters tomorrow. The Obamination will meet any losses with fury. How DARE we voters attempt to thwart his plans?

If the repubs are interested in the good of the country they will absolutely refuse to work with oblowme.

Is this what he will say?

“I, Barack Hussein Obama, hereby declare an national emergency. I have issued executive orders that dissolve the House and Senate, suspends the U.S. Constitution, declares martial law and outlaws the private possession of firearms and ammunition. All gun owners will be visited by a team from my National Security Force in the coming days. I will not tolerate any dissent.

I promised you change you can believe in and I am going to give it to you.”

This is rich. Mr. "I won", who couldn't care less about working with the GOP a couple of years ago, is now trying to put out the olive branch...sort of. We'll see how things turn out tonight, but he may have little or no say in how this country is governed if it is a really bad night for the Dems.

Or how about this:

"I've been crisscrossing the country for weeks trash talking the Republicans (calling them the enemy) and beating to death my car-in-the-ditch metaphor, but now that I've gotten my butt kicked, can I hitch a ride in your car-in-the-ravine-that-I-pushed-there-which-your-Republican-policies-will-soon-be-catapulting-out-of-this-ravine-so-I-can-get-some-credit-for-being-part-of-the-solution?"

If all goes well, the conservatives should send him a two-word telegram in response to this:

“You lost”.

Thank You SOOOO much!!!

I just started painting for a liberal today, who has one of the original posters hanging in his kitchen, and it makes me cringe every time I walk by it. I will now smile and giggle gently to myself.

You’ve made my world a happier place.

He called Sarah Palin the mayor of a small town when she was the Governor of Alaska at the time.

I’m sure he will say this is an embrace by the GOP of his agenda.

We should make drug testing mandatory in DC. Seriously.
