Obama on Meet the Press: Im not driven by some ideological agenda.
Human Events ^ | 12/30/12 | John Hayward

President Obama turned up on NBC’s “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. “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda – I’m a pretty practical guy,” he explicitly stated, offering his past four years in office as evidence.

It’s too bad “Meet the Press” doesn’t have a laugh track. Obama’s 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, America’s top outlaw journalist just sits quietly and nods. In truth, nothing about Obama’s 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 Republican’s ideological commitment to low taxes is no more illegitimate than Barack Obama’s 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 they’re 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

Obama and other leftist minions frequently say exactly the opposite of what they think.

If they accuse someone of something, it’s because they are already doing it themselves.

If they say they are for something, they are against it.

Etc.

And somebody on this forum actually asked if anyone had taken the time to listen to him.
If his actions don’t drown out his lies then there is little hope for any of us.

The phrase, “liar, liar pants on fire” comes to mind.

Many ideologies seem to drive Barack Hussein Obama, the main ones being Marxism, communism, socialism, Islam, anti-Americanism, racism, liberalism, gangsterism and anti-colonialism.

“I’m not driven by some ideological agenda.” = “I don’t lie.” = “I am Christian.”

Anyone who believes this might be interested in a bridge I have for sale.

I call bull {expletive} {expletive}. hussein is nothing but ideology and idiocy with no small dose of fascist leanings. Worst enemy of the US Constitution ever.

If that is true, and he has no “agenda” and isn’t driven by any ideology (including preserving America for our posterity)- that means he is just a plain old junkie, who thrives in chaos.

He is either a communist, a lush, or a dope addict.

One or the other.
