Skip to comments.Obama's Hostile and Evasive Presser
Posted on 11/15/2012 12:41:14 PM PST by jazusamo
Obama's first post-election press conference, if you could call it that, tells us a great deal about his attitude and the approach he intends to pursue in his second term, which is the same failed policy mix on steroids.
Obama's re-election, of course, gives him the right to pursue these policies, but it doesn't deny elected Republicans the right or relieve them of the duty to oppose them.
If Obama can glean any intelligible mandate from his victory, it is that relentless negative campaigning, demagoguery, divisive identity politics, deceit and superior political strategists targeting essential voters and voting districts work. So it should be no surprise that Obama is taking that lesson to heart and is already applying the same strategies going forward.
In short, Obama will continue to do what he does best: community organizing and campaigning. He is a perpetual campaign machine who pretends to aspire to bipartisanship while being the most partisan president we've had in decades.
In fairness, though Obama never did present an agenda beyond generalized brochure-worthy talking points in the last two weeks of the campaign, the American people witnessed in his first term what he stands for, and a majority didn't reject it. Granted, he completely distorted the causes of our ongoing economic problems and continued to blame George W. Bush for his own failures, but in the end, he still won. But so did congressional Republicans, whose mandate to oppose Obama's policies cannot be in serious doubt.
Obama's words and body language indicate he intends to be quite aggressive in his second term and more dictatorial. It was as if he regards his election as a coronation to kingship. His responses and deflections even to softball press questions and his hostile attitude toward elected GOP officials in the co-equal legislative branch make...

We all knew that Obama’s true colors would be revealed to all if he won re-election. With Obama’s pugnacious attitude at Wednesday’s press conference - even with almost complete complicity from a fawning White House press corps - he has proven the predictions true. Fasten your seat belts folks, the nest four years are going to be a bumpy ride!
Might get Bumpy for Obama too.
Americans will only take so much Shiite.
I expect der 0berFuhrer Emperor Hussein 0bama to rule by edict - Executive Order, pretty much exclusively. That is the definition of a dictator. The courts won’t stop him because the dims have been successful in placing their cronies - crooked judges - in place all the way up to the SCOTUS, and congress won’t do anything. Boehner bent over and grabbed his ankles the day after the election and told Hussein he could have his way and McConnell asked how high Hussein wanted him to jump.
He's the same arrogant jerk but worse and now has a supposed “mandate” for his idiocy.
God help us.
What’s to stop him? Who? In our system we elect a King George for 4 yours of almost no restraint and no checks, protected by the fawning press and violent mobs of supporters, and the likes of perfessor Ayers have figured out how to play it, use it and abuse it to the max. Just watch what happens the next 4 yours, just watch!
No one will stop him.
He will destroy the country and replace what is good and decent with liberal utopian garbage.
We can only hope that the 500 generals allied and supported by corporate chiefs will bring him down.
When does this god-forsaken election get certified? Any chance for a miracle before then? This man is an abomination.
A Chicago thug if there ever was one. It is not going to be pretty and people are going to get hurt....but we tried to tell them....
A combination of massive fraud and idiocracy “reelected “ this nitwit fraud. Hold on...it isn’t going to be pretty no matter what.
