SEATTLE (AP) — President Barack Obama charged Sunday that the GOP vision of government would "fundamentally cripple America," as he tried out his newly combative message on the liberal West Coast.

Aiming to renew the ardor of Democratic loyalists who have grown increasingly disenchanted with him, the president mixed frontal attacks on Republicans with words of encouragement intended to buck up the faithful as the 2012 campaign revs up.

"From the moment I took office what we've seen is a constant ideological pushback against any kind of sensible reforms that would make our economy work better and give people more opportunity," the president said....

He took office with a sizeable majority in the House and filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. No "pushback" was an option. Does he think we're really that stupid?

It would cripple the parochial Democrat vision of winners and losers all picked by the Politburo, with waste and sops galore.

It sounds like the devil complaining that to send him to hell would be a bad thing. Well yes it would be — for you, old chap!

Newly combative? What a joke. Everything coming off of his teleprompter has been combative and angry. Blame Bush, Corporate Jets, Tea Party people, The Rich, ect. If the base was not excited by that, I doubt this new round of vitriol will matter.

If Obama believes that the GOP would cripple America, you'd think he'd be hell bent on changing his party affiliation.

Goebbels would be proud of the bs he is spewing.. as you said, he had both houses for 2 years. What a load of crap. If anyone is crippling us, it is his war on the private sector.

I can see Palin going head to head with Obama. She would tear him a new one. When she gets in this race, she is going to focus on him like a laser.

“President Obama and HIS economy...” is how every sentence from Conservative candidates should start.

i.e., “President Obama and HIS economy have destroyed the job situation in this country.”

“President Obama and HIS economy have made it impossible for the average American to provide for their family the way Americans should be able to provide for their families.”

“President Obama and HIS economy have set us back 10 years or more in our quest to be energy independent.”

“President Obama and HIS economy have lost or destroyed more jobs than any President in American history.”

And just pound it home that this IS OBAMA’s Economy, PERIOD!

This is the 2012 strategery.

Lacking anything to run on, the objective is to make the public fear a GOP win and hopefully just vote him back in as the devil they already know.

You’re right—she alone would focus on Obama like a laser.

She had it right 3 years ago—Sept. 3, 2008 at the GOP Convention in Minneapolis, MN. Here’s a link to the whole speech,check out her take on Obama from 27:00 to 31:00, and tell me —does she know the Kenyan Klown or not?:

The unelected unaccountable and too often unknown minion is indeed the danger......they always are with totalitarians....it’s the minions who do the mean stuff while the “dear leader” can appear to be above it all.

And he made this idiotic statement in Seattle.

Thankfully, it’s supposed to rain tomorrow, so at least the stench of his presence will be washed away.
