Obama: “All the choices we’ve made have been the right ones”
Hot Air ^ | October 19,2011 | Tina Korbe

Posted on 10/19/2011 1:10:25 PM PDT by Hojczyk

In an exclusive interview with ABC’s Jake Tapper, Obama essentially said that, if he could redo the first few years of his presidency, he wouldn’t have made a single decision differently.

“I guarantee it’s going to be a close election [in 2012] because the economy is not where it wants to be and, even though I believe all the choices we’ve made have been the right ones, we’re still going through difficult circumstances,” the president said.

Sheesh. More power to a person for confidence and conviction, but no doubts? No second guesses? No mistakes to regret or amend? Must be nice.

Let’s focus on just one of the major messes Obama has made. I’ll pick Obamacare, because, in his interview with Tapper, O explicitly doubled down on his support for it, a cumbersome and over-reaching piece of legislation if ever there was one.

“The health care bill that we passed is absolutely the right thing to do, but it’s going to take a while before it’s even fully implemented, much less taken full effect,” he said.

Absolutely the right thing to do? The president must have forgotten the circumstances of its passage because, elsewhere in the interview, he implies that legislators ought to be responsive to the will of the people. If he’s to have any credibility at all as he pleads for passage of the American Jobs Act on the basis that a majority of Americans supposedly support the individual elements of his proposal, then he has to at least admit it was a mistake to pass the most unpopular entitlement program in U.S. history against the clear mandate of the electorate.

Didn’t the MSM spend much of its time starting around four years ago trashing GWB for being too stubborn to admit any mistakes? Or did I just dream that?

Definition: “Ineptocracy” (in-ept-oc-ra-cy)

A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable
of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or
succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
diminishing number of producers.

Guess the ‘choices’ weren’t ‘right’ enough.

Yep, it all has to do with what your presuppositions are.

If your presupposition is
“once the entire world is communist, everything will be perfect”,

then, yes, they’ve made all the “right” decisions.

"Definition: “Ineptocracy” (in-ept-oc-ra-cy)"

It's called "Idiocracy" and there was already a documentary movie of the same name made about it.

(At least it's starting to look more and more like a documentary)

That’s what most people don’t understand.

Keep in mind that The Won has been raised from his earliest days to hate this country, freedom and Western Civilization.

With that as background, everything he does makes perfect sense.

There have been many panels of talking heads that have had the discussion of whether Zero would change direction and try something different, since it is so obvious that what he has been doing isn't working.

Well, he has definitely answered that question. Re-elect this guy, and it will be more of the same and then some. If he doesn't think he has made any wrong choices, why would he change direction and try something different? This guy needs to be out of the WH, the country won't survive a second term.

...or malicious.

While I am in general agreement with “never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity”, sometimes the scale of stupid required exceeds the possible, and malice is then the only alternative explanation.

If it were “stupidity”, he’d accidentally get it right once in a while.

Since he never gets it right, it’s not “stupidity”.

The brat is spoiled by never being told "That's wrong. And you have to get it right!"

The spoilers tell the brat: "You're a like Heaven to me, I'm happy with everything you do."

For Obama, the spoilers in his own mind -- a protective measure of his displaced person of a childhood, made into a beloved mold by his Mom. After that, maybe from her, he learned to surround himself with those who kept him in his spoiled, yet delusional, framing of the worlds.

Ayers, Soros, Dorhn, and his own wifey Michelle all attracted to his persona. G-d did give him a gift. A gift of the gab, for sure. How he chose to use that gift was to massively grow his perfect immaturity.

It is a child that hits and curses the hammer for striking his thumb, beloved by those who would love if that was the way G-d had made the world. The perfect class. The class of ever-folk that hold no one has to accept rebuke, because their god made THEM perfect. Or to be closer to their mindset: that my G-d made me perfect and beyond any rebuke. Everything I wish to believe is so, and curse those who claim otherwise. I am the pinnacle of Creation, I, in fact, CREATE WORLDS, I AM GOD.

Continuing ... You, personas or worlds, facts or fictions, are evil for denying me. There are no other gods above me, nor even besides me. I can only be perfect. Yet I only associate with those of the same god.

< html tag > Stop this idiocy, okay? < /end tag > Anyway that's my own model of how Obama and his cohorts operate, internally.

No, he is serious. The question is what track is he talking about. Is it the track that leads us into prosperity, liberty and personal freedom or is it the track that leads us into government dependence and a third world economy? Personally, I think it is the latter.
