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

These guys disagree:
Big time .he just told another lie; add it to the list...
Yes especially sad that there seems to be so many of them. Otherwise, I would normally chortle contemptuously at them and go on my way. Now, they have elected a president.
Waist of bandwidth to post this crap. Who here ever listens to Big Ears & who waist their time listening to any of these crapola shows on Sunday mornings.
You Lie. (reprise)
Exactly,historically the regime only lied about half the time. In his interview with DNC Dave he lied all the way through it. It was truly mind boggling.
Practically speaking, as president he can sign executive orders thereby nullifying the Constitution.
He lets others drive the "idealogical agenda," and he signs whatever they put in front of him.
It then becomes the law of the land governed by a tyrant.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to be politically, culturally, or religiously neutral in one’s worldview. Such a state can NOT exist in the mind of any sentient being.
Therefore: Obama IS driven by an ideological agenda. Everyone is.
For example: Religious worldview.
Starting with religious worldview every person must choose between either a godless or God-centered worldview. Neither is neutral in content or consequences and this NON-neutral worldview ( godless or God-centered) drives one’s resulting NON-neutral culture and politics.
Ok...Now I will read the article.
Maybe this is for you to say to your worships ( who remind me of the Jim Jones followers); the rest of us are not buying your tall tales. See your Obamacare in what it is doing to ration medical care while putting grandmothers in the grave if she cannot be what the government wants her to be. Does Michelle like her country now. Lies, all lies.
So did that genius David Gregory challenge the Assclown, or did he roll over like a submissive dog?
Let me guess...the latter.
Hey, a guy can dream, can't he?
Obama on Meet the Press: Im not driven by some ideological agenda.
That means he is. It’s always the opposite with that lying communist sob.
