Posted on 01/13/2012 8:50:24 AM PST by truthkeeper
I am trying to work and listen at the same time, but is anybody else hearing this??
Obama is asking Congress to reinstate his Executive authority to streamline six agencies into one, so he could "help businesses grow, save businesses time, save businesses money."
He's making it sound like the best thing since sliced bread. News media is eating it up.
"Reform and remake our government so that it works. This should not be a partisan issue."
And the communist takeover continues.
My God! This sounds very much like a Hitler moment!
Or am I over reacting? Hitler’s stuff seemed pretty good at first, and even got some stuff done, but the devil was in the details.
Obama: "This is a make or break moment, trying to get the middle class going and businesses growing"..."we've got to take advantage of it."
Fox: "Asking for the authority to consolidate government agencies...sounds pretty good!"
Paul Gigot: "He's presenting himself as a reformer now..."
I understand on the surface it would sound good...from anybody but him. Brrr...is it just me? Gives me the chills.
asked this on another thread but what is he saying.
Someone just told me that he is wanting to make Govt different which takes power away form congress and gives him more power.
Is this true?
I’ve told people that I firmly believe that Obama will not finish his first term. What most don’t know is that I use that wording very specifically for a reason: One way he could not finish his first “term” is if elections are suspended. At that point he would no longer be in a “term” even though his term would have finished in January when the new president would have been sworn in.
I don’t expect it to happen, but if it does, my prediction will have come true.

I’ve got to leave in a bit. It would be great if someone would please post the actual transcript on the forum as soon as it is available. Thanks in advance!
I can't stand watching him. The way he talks makes me sick.
Free Campaign Air Time
Then why are you making it a partisan issue?
The countdown on the Obamayan Calendar continues....
the MSM lapdogs are loving all of this.
The free air time is staggering and this man has never ran this country except into the ground.
From some things I read earlier, he is essentially asking for fast track authority to reorganize government agencies - congress must still approve though. Reagan was given this in the 80’s and Obama wants it now ...
Of course, the proof is in the pudding - IOW, once he is given the authority, who is to say he wont abuse it, as he has every other authority vested in him.
To be honest I have NEVER heard him complete the first sentence. If I am EVER on a channel and his face comes on, I immediately hit the mute button and change the channel. I REFUSE to watch or listen to the puke. There is absolutely nothing that I want to hear him say. IF he ever quit, I will listen to that two words and cheer. But, I will never listen to the puke.
Raising the small business administration to a cabinet level post as of today.
How many Rinos are going to go along with this crap?
Let’s not forget all of Obama’s messiah statements
“... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama” - Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire.
January 7, 2008.
[My God! This sounds very much like a Hitler moment!]
Obama has been setting us up for a civil war for a long time. That’s what community organizer is all about.
As I was typing away I actually DID hear him say something to the effect of, "Of course I won't abuse that authority"...and then he chuckled.
Believe me, I almost yakked.
Then your Demonrat controlled Senate can pass a budget for the first time in about 900 days, and you can get your precious "merge".
Every FReeper needs to read up on the Nazis rise to power. Economic crisis, handing the reigns of power over to an individual, etc. It is that obvious.
IMHO why have a war?
I would lose no sleep what so ever if the north east and the west coast went on their merry way and they can have bozo, Romney , illegals , homosexuals, cross dressers, etc
Skimmed this quickly - this sounds so Hitlerian . . . looks like he going by the playbook . . . time is running short to complete his “fundamental transformation of America”.
Notice he isn't starting with the IRS!
Is it just me or did that speech sound weird...like somebody we haven't heard before...shivers down my spine.
It's NOT just you...I got chills!!
the MSM lapdogs are loving all of this.
They better enjoy it while they can because if we become a dictatorship all is needed is ONE TV and radio station. So, they better be thinking of a trade or something because the MSM en masse will not be needed. Then we will only have to listen to their BS on one station.
just heard it and WOW.
If he wants to do that then submit the plans ton congress and let them deal with it but he was asking for more power to me.
Why did he have to come on TV for that too?
The enemy of this country is the MSM as they are telling lies, covering stories up, twisting the truth and not doing their jobs.
Them and their messiah have been in election mode since day one.
No doubt right now they are doing fraudulent votes in swing states, the DOJ are looking to sue certain counties etc and the white house is telling the MSM what to cover and say.
Very good question here. If Obama wants to eliminate the commerce department, what happens with the census?
One way he could not finish his first term is if elections are suspended
And it appears most Americans are too busy watching football or dancing with the stars to even notice.
Bump for later
Look how well it worked in Venezuela under Hugo.
You are not overreacting.
This is pretty chilling.
Sounds like Chavez not so long ago.
ENABLING ACT, Part Duex
Yeah, it happened this way in 1930’s Germany, too.
“Then your Demonrat controlled Senate can pass a budget for the first time in about 900 days”
Dictators don’ need no Stinkin BUDGET!
Just ask anyone who works for NBC News, they’ll tell ya!
I will buy McConnell and Boehner a clue and tell them to ask barry to put this request in a FY budget proposal. The GOP needs to damn him with faint praise but they don’t even have the stones to do that.
Once again the Pubbie Schmoos—Boehner and McConnell—have no clue. They allow the Usurping Marxist to coopt a conservative position. These two idiots are supremely stupid, in Onada’s pocket or some combination of the two.
IMHO, they’re more dangerous than Onada because they facilitate his Marxist policies. If they did the job they were sent to Washington to do, they could at least slow down Onada’s destruction of America as we knew it. I hope I never came face to face with these scum. It would be very difficult to project even the barest civiity toward them.
My immediate reaction is, look behind the headlines into the details, just like what was necessary with Obamacare. Being the liar and deceiver that he is, his public portrayal of the intent and goals is NEVER as he bills it.
The Constitution is very specific: the Obama's term of office ends on Jan 20, 2012. If no successor has been elected, then the office devolves to the Speaker of the House.
The Constitution is quite clear about the length of his term and it doesn't depend on someone else being elected or inaugurated. Barry's term will be up after four years.
If a Constitutional amendment were passed, perhaps it could be changed, but absent that--which ain't-a-gonna happen--he would (again) be acting as a willful violator (therefore traitor) to the Constitution.
No one beyond Sasha, Malia and Michelle would have proper reason to adhere to his words, orders or actions, and he would certainly be subject to arrest and imprisonment to await trial.
