Via National Journal, this isn’t as self-parodically narcissistic as the headline makes it sound. He’s responding to a guy in the audience who screamed “I love you, Barack!” — itself a newsworthy event given the state of O’s polling lately — and is kinda sorta teasing in his reply. Too bad he doesn’t mean a word of it. Over to you, former Democratic congressman Martin Frost:
I supported Obama in 2008 and intend to vote for him again in 2012. But on this issue, he is simply wrong.
As good as this job program is, it is unrealistic to expect that this Congress will fund it 100 percent with tax increases rather than funding it with a combination of tax hikes and spending cuts.
Instead of making Congress an offer it could not refuse, the president has made Congress an offer he knows they will not accept…
Why would the president make a funding proposal that he knows Congress will reject?
The most likely explanation is that his jobs program was a campaign document not a real plan for putting people back to work.
If the GOP passed the bill as is and the economy either didn’t improve or improved only marginally, O would get the lion’s share of the blame. If they don’t pass the bill as is then the White House gets to keep playing the same sort of what-if game that they’ve played with the stimulus for two years. Coming to a campaign ad near you in October 2012: “What if the Republicans had passed the president’s jobs bill in its entirety when they had the chance? Our economy might be on the rebound right now.” That’s the ad they want to run for buck-passing purposes, and that’s why they’ve proposed paying for the bill exclusively with new taxes. It’s a poison pill for the GOP. If you really love Obama, you should help him not to pass the bill so that he can try to pawn the crapola “recovery” off on Republicans next year.
Latest poll results, incidentally: Obama 49, Romney 43 and Obama 50, Perry 42. Dude, I’m nervous.
True - but there is all kinds of “control over the little people”.
It’s happening on a daily basis in every arena you can think of in this country.
First thing I thought of as well when I read the headline. He thinks he is the Messiah for the entire world.
I am sure there never was a president of the US who ever said, “If you love me,”
Seriously, I’m concerned about this guy’s mental stability.....is he in the middle of a breakdown?
I am sure there never was a president of the US who ever said publicly, If you love me,
I forgot about Bill Clinton talking to Monica.
Nor his legions of sycophantic dupes. As America sinks further into the cesspool, these fools cheer wildly.
Obama knows that. He just has different ideas about what is important.
Have you ever heard anything more pathetic?
BOzo is a very disturbed Kenyan.
The first sentence of this comment indicates a lack of common sense or ability to reason, Congressman Frost.
The second sentence implies that you think Obama has been right on previous issues, and indicates that you really just aren't very bright.
I heard this clip of Obama begging (once again) for support for this ridiculous bill and I really think the guy is becoming unhinged.
As for as re-election goes, if the Dems had any sense at all, they’d ditch this assclown and put Hillary in the running.
"I supported Obama in 2008 and intend to vote for him again in 2012."
Tough rhetoric from a former Democrat congressman. You won't hear any currently employed Demcritters talking like that.
Bozo has become positively radioactive, and the results of the two races yesterday prove that it's contagious.
Reminds me of the orgasmic, near-hysterical exclamation by a member of the his adoring audience during a speech: “Oh thank you Mr. President!! Thank you so very. very much!”
” It`s all about me me me. Please look at me! I am so pretty.
LOVE ME ! WANT ME ! “
I wish he would pull an Anthony Weiner so we could get rid of him now. He is insane
The last time I heard, you would if you love me” someone wanted to screw me. Sorry for the crudeness, but its true.
Well Barry, we DON’T and we WON’T!
