Former aide sorry for dissing Obama
politico44 ^ | 10/16/12 | DONOVAN SLACK

Tanden, now president of the Center for American Progress, suggested in her mea culpa that it was a poor choice of words.

"I was trying to say how President Obama, who I admire greatly, is a private person, but I deeply regret how I said it. I apologize," she wrote.

There was another revealing part of her interview that she didn't address in her apology. Tanden also suggested that the president's renewing relations with Clinton was not genuine, but rather a calculated political move.

“Obama engineered this reconciliation, and I think the whole time he was, like, ‘Why do I have to do this?’ ” Tanden told New York. “He did it because he wanted to win, and this was the way to do it.”

“You’ll never work in THIS town again!”

When the town is Washington, D.C., and you’re a Democrat apparatchik, that’s enough to put the fear of non-God into ya.

” It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people.”

She had it right the first time.

I deeply regret that my fellow Democrats are all over my case because I said this. Translated it for you.

Amazing; how quick they are that is. Beyond that; all too predictable. Ugly people; and the ugliest of politics.

In other words: “It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people . . . but I meant that in a nice way.” Is there a nice way to say that Obama’s not just an anti-Semite who doesn’t like Jews, he doesn’t like anyone, but he pretends because manipulation will help him keep power over the people he despises?

Blasphemy!.. citizen made to repent, issues apology.

"I was trying to say how President Obama, who I admire greatly, is a private person, but I deeply regret how I said it. I apologize,"

These 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

They hijacked the now defunct Democratic Party in the 1970s.. Obama is a biological-ideological issue of the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats.

Yes, they are, my friend. Yes, they are. We’re going to regular weekly meetings of the neighborhood unwelcoming committee. We need to get a few more folks on board to conduct a proper overwatch and response for our area.

You know; it's the Commumist MO. . .you speak FOR the Party; or not at all. These intolerant; do not ever tolerate even their own; getting away with an 'individual'; singlular or any 'honest' thought. As soon as it hits the ground; their boots are on it.

We know; what is amazing, is how many do not. Of course; 'useful idiots' are just that.
