Michelle: 'Barack Has Done Phenomenal Job Working Around Congress'
breitbart.com ^ | 10/3/12

Posted on 10/03/2012 3:53:10 PM PDT by Justaham

MICHELLE OBAMA ON The TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW: Well, we’re understanding that, you know, you can have a president you love, but if you don’t have a congress that’s willing to work, you know, you wind up stalled in so many ways. And I think that Barack has done a phenomenal job working around a congress that has never been willing to help move the country forward on so many different issues. But I think he’s done everything humanly possible to get things passed around the margins. But, you know, just imagine where this country will be when we have Barack Obama as President and we have a congress that’s ready to work hand-in-hand, and willing to compromise to make sure that this country moves forward for everyone.

That is not the American way.

Congress is not there to be worked around, they are the representatives of the people and not there to rubber stamp your crap.

Send in the Marines to clean out our House, the White House.

Only total losers would be proud of a president working around the peoples Reps in Congress.

Think about that, Michelle.

Working around Congress? This clown has worked over and through Congress and the Constitution, like he’s some kind of g-damn King Sh!t of Turtle Island.

This filthbag Moochele needs to stick to what she knows which is buying a $1000 outfit and jetsetting around the world on the taxpayer’s dime.

You moron he had the house and senate for a long time and that is when we got into so much trouble..They passed the Death care Bill gave moneys to countries and opened up the white house to the Muslim Brotherhood..Crazy Nancy was in charge and she went wild..If the congress and senate had any balls there would be a constant trial going on in Washington until all of you Muslim Communist are behind bars..

Your husband should be in jail idiot and you along with him..

Yes, Michelle, that’s a big part of the problem. We didn’t elect your Kenyan friend to be our tin-pot dictator. We elected him to implement Congress’ will, not his own (or yours)

Tip of the hat to Michelle—She’s right. He and his Czars and executive orders has turned congress into a collection of rubber stamps—and hand wringers. Its not the American Way but it is the Chicago Way. The RNC should use her comments in an ad.

OMG!! Just listening to the local news and they were interviewing people on the street if they will be watching the debate tonight. They all answered ‘yes’ and why - then they asked an older man getting into his car and he said ‘no’ I hate obama, hate him!! LOL Surprised they aired that part!

Mister Obama doesn't actually call it "working around" Congress.

I suspect that he things of it as...

"playing through".

In all my years, I have never seen such a demonstrative, aggressive and hateful First Lady, not even Hillary. There are pictures after pictures of Michelle and in just about every one of them she expresses her anger and hostility, whether she means to or not it comes through. I have noticed that her eyes are like caves, dark with no light. She is not capable of a genuine smile either. One troubled woman.

No; this MO runs under the 'Obama Flag'. If Obama wins; the 'Stars and Stripes' will be mothballed - or worse.

Oh, 'Change, Change'. . .everybody knows your name.

Okay; OK. . .enough of that. The point of power is in the present; and REpubs MUST remember this and not give in to doubts; (and the RNC doom; gloom and stupidity).

We need vision and Faith that America WILL prevail. The sacrifices of our history; demand it. The demands of our future; require it!

Her husband says, “uh” or “uhhhh” a lot. Remember “Moose” in the Archie comics? “Uh” is one letter away from “Duh.”

Michelle: ‘Barack Has Done Phenomenal Job Working Around Congress’>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

You mean like he has done in not advancing any budget for a period of 4 years, his entore first term? And then havuing a snit and passing executive orders to bring about policies that teh People themselves do not want, creating varuious constitutional crises in the fields of environmental law, personal searches at Airports( touch me/feel me), and waging war on former US allies in Libya and Egypt without COngressional consent?

These are the actions of a wannabe third world king, not those of a duly elected, constitutionally qualified president of the United States. They are the activities of a foreigner who is not really a supporter of America, its history of freedom, or its culture.

Every time I think he and MO can’t go any lower, they surprise me by doing so.

I genuinely believe that the two of them are so stupid that they do not even understand how stupid and unqualified they are. They have been told all their lives that they are brilliant and they believe it.

Get a clue Zippy and Mrs. Zippy. When your theories and schemes fail in the real world, it’s not the real world that’s the problem.

" And I think that Barack has done a phenomenal job working around a congress that has never been willing to help move the country forward on so many different issues."

I always asked, what is "Forward" and to where? Like all her unConstitutional ilk, Moochele doesn't support the separation of powers. She believes in the dictatorial power of the Executive Branch over the Legislative Branch. She's made it clear in her words and actions.

Damn, I miss Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan. What admiral and graceful women they were. Attributes that Hillary Clinton and Michele Obama cannot comprehend.

Actually, you know, Michelle, I shudder to think where the country would be were we to have a Dem Congress and your husband as president (had enough of that in 2009 - 2010!).

Just as an aside, the Harvard-and-Princeton-educated Mooshell drops more you knows in one paragraph than your typical NFL'er.

The campaign will be hiding first yeti, Man-chelle and Slow-Joe Biden from further speaking opportunities with cameras or recorders present. There’d be a shortage on shoe leather from all the foot-in-the-mouth gaffes every time these two stray from their pre-written, teleprompter-approved talking points.

Yes- Just Imagine!!

We could be paying $8 a gallon for gas to get to jobs we don’t have.

Note to Boxcar Butt:

A President is supposed to work WITH Congress! They are not supposed to gather acclaim for writing Executive Orders by the handful & going around Congress.

There have been far too many times that Obama said he would work with Congress—if they would just DO AS HE WANTED!!

Congress wasn’t elected to be a rubber stamp for Obama & his Marxist policies.

Hugo Chavez would be so proud!!!!

Someone needs to tell Jug Ears that he is supposed to be a President—NOT a Dictator!

I only have advice to Boxcar Butt to START PACKING!!!!

The American way is for The President to work with Congress,
mabe do a little compromise, to get the Nation's business done. Obama huddles with his Chicago cronies and doesn't even try to work with Congress. (He doesn't even contact his party leaders in Congress).

I know she is not thatbright nor has she very held a real job but in that time she could have done a little homework and she would have found that he is NOT SUPPOSED TO GO AROUND THE CONGRESS, HE GOES TO THEM AND WORKS WITH THEM.

Also her husband had two years of total full rule, TWO YEARS
