ØBAMA BLAMES 'DEMOCRACY' FOR HIS FAILURES
Fox News ^ | 8/4/2011

Posted on 08/04/2011 1:18:48 PM PDT by curth

"It's been a long, tough journey. But we have made some incredible strides together. Yes, we have. But the thing that we all ought to remember is that as much as good as we have done, precisely because the challenges were so daunting, precisely because we we were inheriting so many challenges, that we're not even halfway there yet. When I said 'change we can believe in' I didn't say 'change we can believe in tomorrow.' Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we've got this big, messy, tough democracy," President Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago on Wednesday night.

The people who voted for this clown should be greatly ashamed of themselves for what they’ve done to this once great nation.

“big, messy, tough democracy” Just the way we like it Obama but better than that we are a “Republic”, not something you like. We’ll prove it fairly soon.

Sounds like he is trying to soothe his base that he hasn’t wrecked the US sooner.

I’ve always thought it curious that the “Constitutional scholar” doesn’t understand that we’re a Republic.

I have truly run out of things I can post on message boards without getting banned. I have become so furious about how quickly this country is circling the drain, only cuss words come to mind anymore, and I generally am not a cussing woman. So I guess I will post the genteel, southern style of cussword that I have learned while down here—
Bless his heart.

The thing is- they’re not ashamed. They’re always harping about more freebies. Some jacka$$ recently stated that the poor have a “right” to a cell phone, even though te rest of us pay for that BS.

Bless your heart Madame, a lady never resorts to profanity, it’s ungracious , unlady-like and in a perfect world profanity should be the province of us uncouth and incorrigible men, redeemed only by the civilizing influence of you gals. I think just the name “Barrack Obama’’ itself should be profanity enough.

Detroit, 2009: Ken Rogulski interviewing a woman in line for stimulus cash:

ROGULSKI: Why are you here?

WOMAN #1: To get some money.

ROGULSKI: What kind of money?

WOMAN #1: Obama money.

ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?

WOMAN #1: Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?

WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.

WOMAN #2: And we love him.

WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!

WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)

The truth may be that this is all a big social experiment run by Harvard to see just how stupid the general public can be. Every day they come up with some new outrage that’s worse than the last and people just take it, shake their heads and move on to the next day’s abomination. And somewhere there is a grad student thinking he’s going to get an A on his test.

What? That scenario isn’t any more insane than what is happening now.

NNOOOOOOO!

When Jefferson penned the Dec. of Ind., he changed Locke's "Life, Liberty, and Property" to "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness."

There IS NO RIGHT TO PROPERTY.

What you have a "right" to, the government is bound to take steps to ensure you have, or to ensure is protected.

So the "right" to ANY kind of property requires the government to provide it, if you don't have it.

I disagree. I have the RIGHT to PURSUE ownership of property. Ownership requires the ability to be able to afford the purchase, and the responsibility to pay for any charges resulting from said purchase. What people do NOT have a right to is the public paying for my RIGHT to PURSUE ownership.

The leftists keep saying “Democracy”, but this country was established as a “REPUBLIC”.

A democracy is nothing but MOB RULE on the road to Communism.

Democrats have made the word “democracy” sacrosanct so that the “Democratic Party” will be considered sacrosanct because of its name.

Hold on till the next election! People just don’t comprehend that when they elect a dum bass we have to put up with him for at least four years, usless someone shoots him, then we have to put up with the other dum bass that was on the ticket with him.

Hopefully people have learned their lesson for the next 20 years but I wouldn’t bet on it.

Actually, you are agreeing.

You have the right to PURSUE property. But the government has no obligation to ensure you get it.

Thank you.
