Obama: Republican voters ‘often agree with me’
The Daily Caller ^ | August 31, 2012 | Nicholas Ballasy

Posted on 09/01/2012 4:59:56 AM PDT by ilovesarah2012

President Barack Obama said Republican voters “often agree with me,” insisting that his “approach” at governing has been “consistent” from the start of his term.

Obama added that he has proposed policies which “used to be embraced” by the Republican Party.

Obama was asked, “So how are you going to talk to Republicans differently if you are reelected?”

“Republican voters, if you ask them about my particular policy positions, often agree with me. So there’s a difference between Republicans in Washington and Republican and Republican-leaning voters around the country,” Obama said in a Parade Magazine reader question-and-answer session published on Friday.

“I think that after this election, we’ll be in a position to once again reach out to Republicans and say that the American people have rendered a judgment, and the positions we’re taking are well within what used to be considered bipartisan centrist approaches.”

Oh yes, there are so many Republicans who believe that they should pay more taxes, have more regulations from EPA, the Dept. of Education, the Labor Relations Board, want homosexual “marriage”, abortion replacing the laws of God, and policies that refuse to develop any energy other than wind and solar.

This is one of his biggest liies yet, but I’m sure we’ll hear many more before election day.

In a sense, he's right. Many Republican voters do often agree with him.

Many Republican voters would think $300 wine tastes good if they ever tasted it. Many Republican voters would prefer to spend their day on the golf course instead of working.

I can't think of any substantive policy position that I agree with Zero on, but that's not exactly what he said.

Someone called the EPA under Obama the Employment Prevention agency. Under Lisa Jackson and Obama it’s main purpose is to kill as many jobs as pssoble.

Yep like Rush mentioned yesterday on his program, Obama still has this idea that if he could only rebrand his message or polish the message in a new way the “Republicans” would then finally see the light, as if people are too stupid to get the greatness of Messiah Obama. Obama is one hell of a narcissistic, delusional liberal that would wreak havok if he gets a second term.

Well, we can all agree on that point.

Soledad O' Brien from CNN was on Bill Maher's show Real Time last evening and she made that same comment but saying it was the Republicans or conservatives that use that strategy. You could see her face as in you knew that she knew she was lying out of her a$$ to try to accuse us for what the libs are doing. These people are truly E V I L ! ! ! !

Holy Cow. This guy must have done a LOT of drugs in his past.

He’s got Republican VOTERS mixed up with Republican POLITITIANS. It may be that some of THEM agree with him.

Ever since his first day he has done everything he can to dismantle this great nation and turn it into something of his own imagination.

If he is given another four years, he WILL finish the job.

Can you imagine Obama unleashed for another four years?

The President of the company I work for is surrounded by the other executives and his precious marketing staff. No one - and I mean NO ONE - gets to talk to him unless it's through them. When I did a project for the marketing staff I was alone with the President for an afternoon and we exchanged pleasantries. Soon enough, he asked a few questions about the other departments and I answered him, honestly. Shortly thereafter I experienced the wrath of the marketing director for telling the President the truth. I also got an promotion from the President.

My point is, Obama is surrounded by 'YES' people. He doesn't know whether to wind his ass or scratch his watch unless one of the 'yes' people tells him how to do it. When he makes these statements, he's repeating what's been told to him.

Obama does indeed seem more like “Resident in Chief” instead of President of the United States of America. They should have Margaret Cho or whoever that robot woman is on that show Big Brother give the election a Big Brother feel since Obama is not a real president. They could see if he stays as Head of Houshold, and ask America if they are voting to “evict”.

Yeah he envisioned the socialistic ways and the “Dreams of His Father” as the way to “transform” America, and finally make Michelle Obama for the first time in being proud of being an American instead of all the shame she had living in this country as an American before she got into the White House.

One big problem with Obama is that he is too much of a narcissist and to rigid in his narrow ideological world view to actually learn and grow. It's as if he quit developing right after finishing sociology 101 in college, and he's constantly trying to fit the world into the ideological box he's carried around since then.

Heck for the entire second term of bush 2, especially the 2 years before obama was elected the dems literally talked this economy into the crapper.

At the time I remember saying "they are going to talk this economy into the crapper just to regain power and when they do god help us becuase they have no idea how to fix it once they break it"

They just don't understand that real life is not an exercise in academic utopia.

The only believable statement he's ever made:
"I've talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, 'Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician...You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better."

Oh wait, that was Matt Damon...

I’m sure he must be confusing the Republicans in Washington, (GOPe), with the Republican voters in the states. Otherwise he is completely delusional.

Billy,

Obama was groomed from youth to take down this country. He is the Left’s true Manchurian candidate. Why do you think there was the move to get him to run after only 300 days in the senate? His entire anti-American attitude was fostered and fertilized by this grandparents and Frank Marshall Davis. And as a young, though probably not registered, communist, bh0 had the party’s full support and that of all its “progressive” members.

Now look.
I am a Republican.
I agree with President Obama on two major issues:

I have a dog, he has a dog. Owning a dog is good.

Secondly, I like beer. I like drinking beer in my back yard. He drinks beer in his back yard, so we agree that drinking beer in the back yard is good.

So yes, occasionally, I agree with President Obama. True statement.
