Obama: I want Federal Government to be 'aggressive and strong and fast and robust'
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/14/2012 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 11/14/2012 12:51:20 PM PST by theruleshavechanged

"It's been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it," Obama added. "That's a pretty good metaphor for how I want federal government to operate generally, and I'm going to do everything I can to make sure it does."

I wasn't thinking legislation as I read those words.

I saw the just as well armed civilian army (attempting to) coming through my village.

A week and a 1/2 day after he conquered the greatest country on the earth. Just disgusting to hear that voice.

Obviously he hasn’t been in a DMV, VA, or Social Security office lately (if ever).

In Crisis time - like Hurricane response - it’s good to be aggressive and fast.

In the rest of the time - which is almost all of the time - I’d rather my government be slow and deliberate.

RE: ‘aggressive and strong and fast and robust’

How would you like the IRS being all of the above in spying on the way you live and do business, in order to take more of the money you earn?

RE: ‘aggressive and strong and fast and robust’

Were they ‘aggressive and strong and fast and robust’ when our consulate was being attacked in Benghazi?

Yup. He’s not talking about the department of motor vehicles, he’s talking about the guys who will bust your door down in the middle of the night with automatic weapons for unflattering comments about the administration. That’s the part of the government he wants fast and ultra-efficient.

“That’s a pretty good metaphor...” How is anything he said a “metaphor”? Does this guy not know language? I thought he was supposed to be this amazing writer.

I want the federal government to be out of my life, and as remote as it possibly can get from my location.

He’s simply telling everyone how will react to those who oppose him. And it will get boner’s attention. They’ll raise the tax on the “RICH”.

Also, anybody who thinks we can just “wait this guy out” is kidding themselves. Nazi Germany from beginning to end lasted twelve years. From the german version of hope and change to virtually off of europe in a smoldering ruin. The equivalent of three of our presidential cycles, which go pretty fast.

"It's been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it,"

Other than his scrounging base, who, exactly, has been HELPED by it?
How many people have lost their job because of this loser? Their home? How many are now living on food stamps like homeless beggars because of this man?

The only people Oboma has helped is himself, his overly costly wife, and probably his boyfriend.

As Fedzilla gets bigger, the individual gets smaller. So, he is admitting that he wants the fed so big that individuals cease to exist! Yet, they claim to be “for minorities,” the individual is the ultimate minority!

Wow. That's a LOT of job losses. There's no way the unemployment rate can stay below 8. I wouldn't be surprised to see something closer to 10 by the end of the year.

See, the thing is, he’s so stupid, ignorant and arrogant, he actually believes that there is such a thing as government efficiency.

On top of that, he thinks that, by sheer force of his personality, he can declare it so.

Impeach him IMMEDIATELY, and it's time to completely erase the term 'Democrat'. They use this as cover.. Call them what they are: SOCIALISTS.

Based on how deeply 0bama has forever ruined America, it won’t even take four more years to do what it took Hitler to do in twelve. There is only one way to reverse the division and hate 0bama has fomented and it’s probably coming..

Like I said - in times of crisis, I want a government that’s able to respond aggressively with robust action. That’s not just fine, it’s the ideal. That’s what they SHOULD do.

If they operate that way the rest of the time - which is 99% of the time - they’d be bulls in a china shop. That is more than less than I deal. It’s a path to ruin.

'aggressive and strong and fast and robust'

Just as aggressive as it was in prosecuting the New Black Panthers.

Just as strong as it was in securing the Arizona border.

Just as fast as it was in defending Americans in Benghazi.

Just as robust as it was in developing domestic energy sources.

Hail Caesar.
