Obama: "We've got to do some governing"
Pollutico ^ | 2/25/13 12:04 PM EST | Jennifer Epstein

Posted on 02/25/2013 9:49:56 AM PST by Hoodat

President Obama urged compromise Monday as he pushed congressional Republicans to reach an agreement to avoid big spending cuts due to take effect at the end of the week.

"There are always going to be some areas where we have genuine disagreement ... but there are more areas where we can do a lot more cooperating than we have seen in the past couple years," Obama told a meeting of the National Governors Association at the White House.

"At some point, we've got to do some governing. And, certainly, we can't keep careening from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis." . . .

At some point, we've got to do some governing? Is he serious? Does he not understand what his paycheck is for?

Being President is a full time "do some governing" job. Yet Obama looks at it as something to avoid. Reluctantly every nine months or so, Obama find himself in a position where he actually has to do something. This could possibly be one of those times.

I think Obama has a great idea there. He and Biden should resign and let intelligent people do the governing.

BS, he’ll NEVER be seen as governing, because then he’d have to take responsibility for his decisions,

and it’s antithetical to his personal belief system to do so.

He’ll have to stay off the gold course and quit partying across the USA to “do some governing”.

He is accountable after all...

Who’s “we” dip$hit??

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majestic_plural

The royal “we”

A common example is the royal “we” (pluralis maiestatis), which is a nosism employed by a person of high office, such as a monarch, earl, or pope. It is also used in certain formal contexts by bishops and university rectors. William Longchamp is credited with its introduction to England in the late 12th century, following the practice of the papal chancery.[3] Its first recorded use was in 1169[citation needed] when King Henry II, hard pressed by his barons over the Investiture Controversy, assumed the common theory of “divine right of kings,” that the monarch acted conjointly with the deity. Hence, he used “we” as “God and I...,” or so the legend goes. (See Rolls Series, 2.12)[not specific enough to verify]

Good! Stop paying people not to work, and give us our frigging money back!

Share the WORK and the wealth will automatically share itself. It's time to start governing!

Did any of those in attendance begin laughing out loud? I recall attending a “management conference” when our new leader was hired. He had his “management” theory to put forth. It was better than a SNL skit, or at least I thought. His presentation was wheels turning connected by a small wheel which he called the linch pin showing how everything is interconnected but some more important than others. I was virtually howling when a cohort
regional manager whispered to me, he is not joking, he is serious. I think that example fits this guy to a T.

He wouldn't know what leadership is if it bit him in the rear. He's never led so much as a 7-11.

Yeah. He keeps telling us someone has to get out there and do his job, because he's not doing it. Someone (obviously not him) has to take a leadership role!

Typical leftists. Always expecting other people to do all the work.

The following link is to an old FR thread, about an even older conservative booklet called “The Revolution Was”, written in 1938 about FDR and the New Deal. It is ALL happening again - amazingly, chillingly so. Only worse.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2185147/posts

An Excerpt:

Worse outwitted were those who kept trying to make sense of the New Deal from the point of view of all that was implicit in the American scheme, charging it therefore with contradiction, fallacy, economic ignorance, and general incompetence to govern...

The design was European. Regarded from the point of view of revolutionary technic it made perfect sense. Its meaning was revolutionary and it had no other. For what it meant to do it was from the beginning consistent in principle, resourceful, intelligent, masterly in workmanship, and it made not one mistake......

Having passed this crisis, the New Deal went on from one problem to another, taking them in the proper order, according to revolutionary technic; and if the handling of one was inconsistent with the handling of another, even to the point of nullity, that was blunder in reverse.

The effect was to keep people excited about one thing at a time, and divided, while steadily through all the uproar of outrage and confusion a certain end, held constantly in view, was pursued by main intention.

The end held constantly in view was power.

Did he really say the line about manufactured crises?

With a straight face?

The guy who can’t talk about an issue without a straw man, the guy whose every action is based on manufactured crises which he then uses to ram (for him, “govern”) through a pre-made agenda using the dialectic and the Delphi technique?
