President Obama turned up on NBCs Meet the Press for the first time since the passage of ObamaCare, and gave exactly the performance that every veteran Obama-watcher would have expected: a bitter, intransigent partisan claiming to be the only non-partisan, non-ideological participant in the fiscal cliff drama. Im not driven by some ideological agenda Im a pretty practical guy, he explicitly stated, offering his past four years in office as evidence.
Its too bad Meet the Press doesnt have a laugh track. Obamas interviewer, David Gregory, was willing to flagrantly violate D.C. gun laws to beat up on NRA executive Wayne LaPierre, but when President Obama takes the stage to drop insane howlers like that, Americas top outlaw journalist just sits quietly and nods. In truth, nothing about Obamas record in office, re-election campaign, or fiscal cliff policy has been even slightly non-partisan or non-ideological. This kind of posturing gives partisanship and ideology a bad name voters do band together into parties and vote for candidates based upon their campaign promises, after all. Whether or not either position is correct, a Republicans ideological commitment to low taxes is no more illegitimate than Barack Obamas stern ideological commitment to raising them.
They say that their biggest priority is making sure that we deal with the deficit in a serious way, but the way theyre behaving is that their only priority is making sure that the tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans are protected. That seems to be their only overriding, unifying theme, the President lied shamelessly about his Republican opponents, breezily ignoring all those calls for genuine fiscal responsibility and spending restraint from the other side of the aisle. No one who has spent more than ten seconds actually listening to Republicans talk about the fiscal cliff could fairly

Doubleplusgood duckspeak. Pushes for gay marriage but isn’t driven by an ideological agenda. Shamelessly pushes gun control following the Newtown massacre but isn’t driven by an ideological agenda. Invites the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House but isn’t driven by an ideological agenda. Bows before tyrants but isn’t driven by an ideological agenda. Fawns towards the Russian leadership, saying he will have “more flexibility” in this his new term, but isn’t . . . one should have the idea by now.
Maybe all three?
“A Snake Is A Snake, Is A Snake”
I was once told a joke about a snake that was found in the snow, he was freezing from the cold, a young man found him and was afraid to pick him up because he was a snake. The snake started begging the young man to help him get warm because he was so cold. The snake told the young man that he could put him under his his shirt next to his body, so he could get warm; the young man told him no, because he was a snake, that bite people. well the snake begged and pleaded and promised not to bite him if he helped him. So, against the young mans better judgement, he picked up the snake that was almost frozen, rubbed him and put him under his shirt to keep warm. The snake enjoyed the warmth of the young man body, the snake got so warm and comfortable, that he remembered that he was a snake and bit the young man. As he was dying the young man asked the snake why he had biten him and the snake replied, I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself, then with a smile, he said “ you knew I was a snake”.
“Obama on Meet the Press: Im not driven by some ideological agenda.
No. I completely agree. You’re not driven by just some ideological agenda. You’re driven by a Marxist ideological agenda.
Please don’t lower horses down to that level! They deserve better associations. :-)
communism to its followers is a religion not merely an Ideological agenda and I have no doubt Mr. Obama is a communist
Looks like you were right. No mention at all about gun control or Gregory’s(punk) violation of DC gun laws. I am surprised that 0bamugabe didn’t take the opportunity.
There is ssome pretty sincere speculation he is a fourth; that having to do with other males.
The state of Communism today. Be one, deny you’re one, everything’s copacetic, comrade!
He is driven by nothing but the ideological agenda he learned growing up.
Listen to him!?! I can’t stand the sight of this f’ing nimrod!
Is Obama Gay?
Most assuredly. To great vexation, I've personally encountered these dupes.
They probably would have liked to punk the people complaining about Gregory, but maybe figured that they’d also be exposing a lot more viewers to it.
Meet the depressed, more sh## comin at ya from the a##clown and chief
YOU CONTINUE TO LIE.
