Skip to comments.Obama: 'Very proud' of record
Posted on 11/08/2011 1:47:26 AM PST by Zakeet
U.S. President Barack Obama said Monday he is "very proud of our track record" but the biggest challenge America faces is "fixing our politics."
Speaking at a fundraiser at a private home in Washington, the president conceded he has "some bumps and bruises" from political battles but claimed credit for a string of successes.
"We were able to prevent America from going into a Great Depression," he said. "We were able to, after a series of quarterly GDP reports that were the worst that we've seen since the Great Depression, reverse it and get the economy to grow again. We've seen 20 straight months of consecutive job growth. We were able to pass health insurance reform, Wall Street reform, end 'don't ask, don't tell,' end the war in Iraq -- the list goes on.
"And so I'm very proud of our track record," he said. "But what is absolutely true is that huge swaths of the country are still hurting. A lot of people are still struggling out there. And there's no way in which America right now is fulfilling all of its potential."

Obviously suffering from the three D's Disease, the Wee Wee is becoming ever more dumb, desperate and delusional!
“fixing our politics.”
Nero lives, the man is a menace
Certifiable....and America suffers greatly for it. When does the nightmare end.....
Sheesh, even after adoring him for about two years, even the Japanese now "get it". The book title says "The True Face of Dangerous Obama: America's Descent into Fascism From Economic Difficulties"
The Hawaiian ass still hasn’t a CLUE as to the meaning and tsunamic significance of the 2010 Midterm Elections wipe-out.
“Certifiable....and America suffers greatly for it. When does the nightmare end.”
It is not likely to end.
We all know that Obumbles is a total disaster, but as long
as the Marxist control education and media, things will only get worse.
Obama is just a snapshot of all that is destroying America.
Throwing him out of office will be little more then brief
The roots and core of disaster, the same that elected him, will remain.
He’s proud that he’s put 47 million Americans on food stamps.
He’s proud that he’s continued the free-flux immigration of illegals, now numbering to three or four times that officially ceded to by the Government.
He’s proud that he now has our soldiers having to check a compass before pissing, lest it be taken as a ‘dis’ on Mecca.
He’s proud that he has trashed the 401Ks, IRAs and pensions of tax paying Americans.
He’s proud that his wife can take luxurious, expensive vacations with all her gal-pals.
He’s proud that he’s increased the number of people on SSI and disability to 25% of all SS payments.
He’s proud that he has 9-16% of Americans living on unemployment compensation.
He’s proud that American is no longer the ‘exceptional’ nation, but one that bows in deference to Islam and Despotry.
He’s proud that he’s driven up the price of gasoline from $1.85 a gallon(inauguration day) to $3.50 a gallon today.
He’s proud that he’s shackled the personal choices of Americans in favor of a death-panel mentality government.
He’s proud that he’s expanded GWBs very bad decision to create DHS and TSA and that he’s been able to turn them into the storm troopers they know they want to be. He’s proud he has put a bull dyke in charge of all of it.
He’s proud that he was able to facilitate the murders of two government border agents using guns he and Holder sold to Mexican cartels.
He’s proud that he is a secret Muslim claiming to be Christian, and that he’s only had to go to a Christian church once or twice since he’s been elected.
(this could go on all day - and more. One need only pick up the local Obama Pravda in one’s locale to get additional ‘prouds’..)
ELENA CEAUSESCU: Such impudence! I am a member and the chairwoman of the Academy of Sciences. You cannot talk to me in such a way!
PROSECUTOR: That is to say, as a deputy prime minister you did not know about the genocide?
CEAUSESCU: She was not a deputy prime minister, but the first deputy prime minister.
PROSECUTOR: This is how you worked with the people and exercised your functions! But who gave the order to shoot? Answer this question!
ELENA CEAUSESCU: I will not answer. I told you right at the beginning that I will not answer a single question.
CEAUSESCU: You as officers should know that the government cannot give the order to shoot. But those who shot at the young people were the security men, the terrorists.
ELENA CEAUSESCU: The terrorists are from Securitate.
PROSECUTOR: The terrorists are from Securitate?
ELENA CEAUSESCU: Yes.
PROSECUTOR: And who heads Securitate? Another question . . . .
PROSECUTOR: Please, ask Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu whether they have ever had a mental illness.
CEAUSESCU: What? What should he ask us?
PROSECUTOR: Whether you have ever had a mental illness.
CEAUSESCU: What an obscene provocation.
PROSECUTOR: This would serve your defense. If you had had a mental illness and admitted this, you would not be responsible for your acts.
ELENA CEAUSESCU: How can one tell us something like this? How can one say something like this?
CEAUSESCU: I do not recognize this court.
PROSECUTOR: You have never been able to hold a dialogue with the people. You were not used to talking to the people. You held monologues and the people had to applaud, like in the rituals of tribal people. And today you are acting in the same megalomaniac way. Now we are making a last attempt. Do you want to sign this statement?
CEAUSESCU: No, we will not sign. And I also do not recognize the counsel for the defense.
PROSECUTOR: Please, make a note: Nicolae Ceausescu refuses to cooperate with the court-appointed counsel for the defense.
ELENA CEAUSESCU: We will not sign any statement. We will speak only at the National Assembly, because we have worked hard for the people all our lives. We have sacrificed all our lives to the people. And we will not betray our people here.
You’d have to be a moro....neverming.
Q: How does Obama measure success?
A: One ACORN at a time.
neverming = nevermind
So much for typing in the dark w/o previewing.....
Straight from the mouth of a certified lunatic to the ears of the duped and deranged. Washington DC AKA Jonestown (Google Jonestown).
That will make a good sound bite for the 2012 elections.
...”The roots and core of disaster, the same that elected him, will remain”...
And those roots, indeed, are to be found in the government/union run classrooms and in the far left propagandistic media, both of whom have worked on their main tools, political correctness, class warfare and charges of racism, for years, to achieve their dictatorial goals for America. Great suffering is ahead for true Americans..Those who know history, ours and that of other systems, weep at the ignorance of our time. Will future generations look back, as we do on the regimes of vicious dictators, and wonder how it all happened?..why people did not see enough to stop it before it was too late? Or, will the Judeo-Christian precepts which were the foundation of our freedom be reinstated through some unseen event no one can comprehend at present? Only time will tell.
“And those roots, indeed, are to be found in the government/union run classrooms and in the far left propagandistic media”
Thank you for amplifying my post.
Sadly, the casting out of Obama will not cure the disease.
He is just one big tumor of the cancer that is invading
I really see no cure. It is a rapidly spreading cancer.
The election of a true conservative will be only a short remission. The cancer will continue.
Mission accomplished. Of course he's proud.
The people of Romania are eternally grateful for what happened next to their “Dear Leader” and his “smartest woman in the world” wife. When they received their “Chauchesqu (SP?) Moment”.
If he’s so proud of his record, why is he not running on it?
What policies are in place to substantiate the projected lowering of unemployment? The only thing I see is that people will run out of unemployment and stop looking. Therefore they won’t be counted.
He just can’t stop lying.
Liberals think wealth is produced by spending. They assume that if the government spends enough money, that will create jobs because that money has to be paid to someone. After failing every time it's tried, they figure that strategy is due for a success.
As the dog returneth to his vomit .... Seems I read that somewhere in the Bible I still cannot find “G-d Dam America! written in. But the Bible verse seems to aptly describe this person Barry Soetoro aka Barak hussein Obama II
I had a discussion with a liberal college professor, in a bar of all places, and he was all in favor of Keynesian economics. I asked why it had not worked so far and he said because we have not spent enough yet. I said that is like trying to drink yourself sober. I then asked where the government got the money they spent. He seemed momentarily stumped so I told him they get it from taxpayers, borrow it (meaning it had to be repaid by taxpayers), or print it which lowers its value. He agreed so I then asked why go through the process of taking the money from the taxpayer, processing it through the government (which uses up a large portion of it) and then letting politicians and bureaucrats decide how to spend it? Why not just let the taxpayer/consumer decide himself how to spend it and short circuit the whole process. Well, you know the routine, the taxpayer may not spend it correctly.
I told him he was too wrapped up in the academic cocoon to see anything else so there was no need to go any farther. I told him I used to think that liberals, which he denied he was, simply wanted some elite intellectuals to tell people how to live but I have since decided that each liberal actually wants to tell everyone how to live themselves. They want to rule the show. He was insulted by that.
What he did as a professor, he said, was coach students how to keep an open mind and consider all possible scenarios. I had to laugh.
I don't think there are many innocent liberals. There are power hungry tyrant wannabes, like Obama and union leaders, who want to control the little people or to destroy things they could never have created. There are greedy parasites who recognize that liberalism is theft, but think they will be on the receiving end of the graft. I doubt that many Dem voters are sincere in believing their goals would be objectively good for society; it's about power for them or loot for them as individuals. I suspect he knows the truth but doesn't want to admit it.
“speaking at a fundraiser from a private home in Washington”.....
Every time I hear that kind of crap, I want the press to ask “was it a millionare’s home or a billionare’s home”??
Well, you’re correct for sure. I’d just not added that because I feel that is an intrisic flaw of most any liberal; take life indiscriminately when it suits your purpose and control life throughout all phases.
You can be sure it wasn’t at the home of a single mom whose teen age kids were suspended from school, even though those are the most common kind in a liberal-created world.
