Obama to crowd: “If you love me, you’ve got to help me pass this bill” (WATCH VIDEO)
Hotair ^ | 09/14/2011 | Allahpundit

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.

Apparently, Dems in the House no longer love Obama, then, as none of them will even bring up as a bill.

Poor ‘bambam. He’s having a rough day.

As is typical for this sick narcissist, it’s always all about him. Everything he says and does is self referential.

This is actually pure Marxists ideology-—promote “emotions” over intellectual exercise. All Marxist ideas are bankrupt and can never stand any scrutiny.

That is because every thing they promote is a Big Lie. Nothing which comes out of their mouth is the truth. It is all about power and control over the little people.

Reminder of his mental illness:

“Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence and self-esteem into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal.”

Zero is sooooo desperate for LOVE he is ASKING people to actually tell him how MUCH they Love him.

He is certifiable.

his jobs program was a campaign document — not a real plan for putting people back to work.

And the P.O.S. obama called for a joint session of congress to launch his campaign plan. Joint sessions should be reserved for asking for declarations of war and other very weighty matters.

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.

I supported Obama in 2008 and intend to vote for him again in 2012. But on this issue, he is simply wrong.

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.

...former Democratic congressman Martin Frost:

"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.

I am a Senior at NC State and the people you see in this video are the very few supporters that he has at State and they are all the humanities majors. We are a conservative University (comparatively speaking) as NC State is an ag/engineering school and is full of truck-driving rednecks (god bless em).

Heck, Tuesday morning when there was a huge line in the middle of campus with people waiting to get tickets to see Barack, the ag boys were just sitting there with dips in laughing their a**** off! As one said, “Ya can’t fix stupid”

Funny thing. He is in Reynolds Coliseum which A) has no airconditioning and B) is very small. Apparently he couldn’t fill out the RBC Center which is where State’s basketball team and the Carolina Hurricanes play so they stuck him in Reynolds.

Oh. And he caused a MASSIVE traffic jam on campus.

I wonder if his teleprompter writers are lifting biblical references.. they really are the epitome of the maxim that goes something like, when a law prohibiting something is used to force people to do exactly what it was intended to prevent, you have reached a working definition of tyranny.
