Norquist To MSNBC: Obama ‘Thinks Somebody Made Him King,’ Doesn’t Know ‘His Place In The Universe’
Mediaite ^ | 12/4/12 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 12/04/2012 11:00:29 AM PST by Nachum

Americans for Tax Reform chief Grover Norquist joined Alex Wagner on MSNBC’s NOW to discuss the current status of negotiations between President Barack Obama and Congressional Republicans to avoid the upcoming fiscal cliff. Norquist told the MSNBC host that he thinks President Obama is overplaying his hand in these negotiations, as he did in his first term, and Obama will cede the political advantage to Republicans because he “doesn’t have the mandate he thinks he does.”

Wagner asked Norquist if he supported the plan put forward by Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Norquist replied that Boehner’s plan is “amorphous,” and said that there is danger in projecting revenues through closing deductions. He advocated for a plan that would focus on growth in order to reduce the nation’s debt burden.

Norquist slammed the White House’s fiscal cliff proposal, which includes new spending and stimulus proposals and counts savings from ending the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

He warned that President Obama is in danger of providing the Republicans in Congress with more leverage in the fiscal cliff negotiations than they entered them with. He says that a similar condition occurred in Obama’s first term.

I see what they did there:

"He doesn’t see where he stands in the universe.”

That becomes "Doesn't Know 'His Place In The Universe'"

And that really becomes -- that black guy doesn't know his place.

Doesn't really matter what we say or how we say it -- it's all a racist dogwhistle for the Left.

Victor Davis Hanson has an outstanding article on just this fact today ... There is sexism and racism in l’affaire Rice — but sadly it is all originating from the Obama administration and its supporters. First, having a woman or a minority as secretary of state has been accepted as the new normal for over a decade. Indeed, we have not seen a white male in the office since Warren Christopher stepped down in January 1997. Over that period, Bush’s first secretary of state, Colin Powell, was ridiculed by liberal critics for his misleading testimony about weapons of mass destruction on the eve of the Iraq War; I don’t recall him alleging racism. Vocal liberal senators tore into Powell’s successor, Condoleezza Rice, during her confirmation hearings; throughout her tenure, she was subjected to venomous criticism over her role in the Iraq War. Was Senator Barbara Boxer, who mercilessly grilled her, a racist? A disinterested observer over the last decade would conclude that the chief critics of black and female secretaries of state have been liberal Democrats — with no countervailing criticism of them from the Black Caucus, the Washington Post, or the Democratic party. Note in that regard that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales left the Bush administration under vicious liberal criticism — although not quite as harsh as the vitriol directed at Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Again, their critics were not tarred with allegations of racism or anti-Latino bias.

Paging Chrissie Matthews. Madame Hillary says that she is still keeping your balls in her lockbox.

Obama needs to have his ego trimmed so he realizes that he is NOT king of America but merely the CEO of the government the people control.

I am waiting for some leader to give directions. Where is the Tea Party, where is Palin?

King Obama? I saw several individuals wearing this shirt in New York city, so it must be true.

I got news for you, Grover. He is king. When you have enough dumbed-down infantilized and feminized subjects, you are king.

And Zero knows it.
