Skip to comments.Obama on tour: ‘I make no apologies for being reasonable’
Posted on 08/16/2011 8:20:26 AM PDT by Nachum
DECORAH, Iowa Hitting back against an emboldened GOP, President Barack Obama launched a rare direct attack Monday on the Republican presidential field, criticizing his potential 2012 rivals for their blanket opposition to any deficit-cutting compromise involving new taxes.Thats just not common sense, Obama told the crowd at a town hall-style meeting in Cannon Falls, Minn., as he kicked off a three-day bus tour through Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois.Youve got to be willing to compromise to move the country forward, the president said later in the day as he delivered the same message at a town hall in Decorah, Iowa.

Good thing I wasn’t drinking anything when I read that.
If he ever were reasonable, rather than being a strict ideologue, he’d feel the need to apologize...
You should have issued a disclaimer about not hacing anything near your Puter you don’t want on your puter.
0dumob never xeases to amuse me with his blatant lies and media never calls him on them.
This kind of putridness makes me puke
Even assuming this statement is true (and it is debatable), Obama hasn't ever made public what he wants as part of any compromise. At least the GOP has said "no tax increases". So, what's Obama's stance? If he wants tax increases, let him describe them.
So lets see I’ll parapharse.... I have failed to deliver on my promises and I offer more of the same, taxing and spending and higher deficits in order to pay for unfunded liabilities like Obamacare, Social Security and Medicare. If you disagree with my approach and all you do is offer plans like Paul Ryans budget plan or God forbid something as radical as Cut Cap and Balance where politicians would no longer be able to use the public trust to bribe the electorate or pay back supporters, then I will continue to tell the American people that it is you who are radicals and unreasonable and let me be clear once I submit my tax and spend plan, if you don’t support it you will be labeled obstructionists and if some responsible people wish to refer to you as anti-American or terrorist I won’t deny it....
That’s about it ....
Shoving Obamacare on US citizens, keeping a boot on our necks, villifying the people??
Does he even know what ‘reasonable’ means?
Meant to say: “I make no apologies for being reasonable - because I have never reasoned, had a reason or need one”
Well Howdy Doody, we won’t apo;ogize when we vote your pathological lying butt out of office in 2012. It can’t come soon enough for me.
Dear Mr. Zero:
Kindly modify you statement and replace the word “reasonable” with eith “an idiot” or “a moron”. Then, no one will take issue with your statement.
They should retitle this the “Obama Comedy Tour”, because he’s veering into self-parody.
“[Obama] launched a rare attack”
Thanks, AP. Here I thought he attacked the GOP relentlessly, every time he opened his mouth. Thanks for setting me straight.
Crazed Obamabot moonbats; they’re what’s in the MSM.
Farts on you, Obama!
“Dig deeper America, we need cash to cover my Screw-ups.”
The Democrats need more money to toss away to their constituents.
More tax money will not solve our problem it will only cause Democrats to throw more money away.
The new tax’s they want will not go towards the deficit ,but to more entitlements.
We have too many entitlements now, That is the problem.
