Skip to comments.Obama dreams of ‘going Bulworth,’ New York Times reports
Posted on 05/16/2013 8:20:19 AM PDT by mandaladon
President Barack Obamaexasperated by scandals, a seemingly stalled domestic agenda and armchair chiefs of staff in the mediawants to tell you what he really thinks, Washington. Really let you have it. In fact, hes so frustrated with all of the inside-the-Beltway BS that he might hire an assassin to target him in a couple of days, but not before hes really ripped politicians (especially Democrats), denounced the outsized weight of money in elections and used socialism as a rallying cry against health insurance companies. Wait, what? The New York Times reported on Thursday that Obama "has talked longingly of going Bulworth, a reference to a little-remembered 1998 Warren Beatty movie about a senator who risked it all to say what he really thought." Probably every president says that from time to time, the Times quoted longtime Obama adviser David Axelrod as saying. ''It's probably cathartic just to say it. But the reality is that while you want to be truthful, you want to be straightforward, you also want to be practical about whatever you're saying.'' The Times' description of the movie is a bit antiseptic. Bulworth, a disillusioned veteran Democratic senator from California facing a tough primary, takes out a rich life insurance policy on himself, with his daughter as beneficiary, and hires an assassin to kill him in a few days' time. Thinking he's going to die, Bulworth decides he has nothing to lose and hits the campaign trail skewering the state of politicsand notably the Democratic Party and race relations.

Well...I remember how that movie ended....
I dunno, so far his Bull has been Worth about a 4-1/2 year around-the-world golf vacation.
Dear Lord help us.
Now we know about “O’s” background!!
He has spent his entire life in front of a TV or at the movies!
THAY’S where he was!
the problem is Obama’s honesty would reveal him to be a total shallow fool.
If Obama said what he really thought, it would be these are just bumps in the road to transforming America; he needs more skilled apparatchiks to carry on the mission.
..... Well ... if this report is true ... it sure speaks volumes about the Prez with a fez's mental stability doesn't it?
Confirming 0bama has only been lying.
It will never happen. Democrats rely on low information voters not knowing what they really think.
He’s already denounced Democracy as messy and getting in the way of his agenda. How much more candid can he get?
Actually, this is what I'm afraid of. The mask is off, he has nothing to lose - but he has enormous power still at his disposal. I think he'll dare the GOP and in fact any law-abiding people who believe in our system to just try to get him out or even to back down, and then he'll go on a rampage where he will just do all these things openly (because after all, he won...).
Exactly so Chimera. Having said that I could see this guy cracking up and losing it. It’s not completely beyond the realm of possibility.
So they repeat themselves, ever louder, and believe that if we don't buy it, we must either be stupid or "evil forces" are at work.
Going Bullworth? Growing bull$hit.
He never has, and he never will.

On Twitter, Iowahawk had him talking longingly of wanting to go Chauncey Gardiner.
Good! Let the true and unvarnished Barry Soetoro that we all know has been lurking in there step forward into full view.
This is Step One in the long predicted Obama crack-up.
He's frustrated that he can't get his way. The tactics don't bother him one bit. He's an arrogant BASTARD who's seldom had to take "no" for an answer.
0bama has told us what he really thinks:
Under my energy policy, utility rates would necessarily skyrocket.
My muslim faith.
Spread the wealth around.
If you can sift through the manure of his lies, the truth gets out once in a while.
He can easily start by releasing his personal records.
The Communists globally, including the Weather Underground, recognized that there were sizeable percentages of the populace that would not succumb to political re-education and indoctrination (the REAL free thinkers). The determination was made that they would need to be locked up in prison camps or simply slaughtered (the Weather Underground estimate was that at least 25 million would need to be killed).
It’s Duane Dibley!
He really wants to “go Caligula”.
He’s well on his way, with that horse’s *ss Harry Reid in charge of the senate.
A drop in the bucket. According to the Seville Strategy of the Global Biodiversity Assessment, the total population of the planet should not exceed 1 billion. Never mind that restoring native plant habitat requires an enormous amount of labor resulting in GREATER biodiversity (our property hosts 371 plant species).
That is the real tragedy with eco-Marxism. In their lust for power to "save the earth," they just might kill it, because they will have killed the people who know how to manage it.
He has no clue about how to do that!! He's never had a job. Flapping your mouth as a community organizer does not count as work.
He only knows how to campaign...from the 'flapping your mouth' experience.
This guy is a barker at a carnival side show, hense why he used the side show metaphor the other day.
It seems he is not back in DC taking full control of this run away roller coaster car on the down side run. He thinks only he can pull it out. Great. The more he takes control, the faster the desent will be. Right now, those who are paying attention want some answers, not some speeches or finger pointing. I am awaiting for the first person to ask him the question: exactly what were you doing after 5pm on the day of the Benghasi attack? When he gives the answer that will throw Hitlery under the bus, because he was not involved, it will be the end of his reign of terror.
Next question: Mr. President, you removed the head of the IRS because of that scandal so you apparently believe the guy at the top is responsible, since there are scandals both in the Justice Department and State Department and even apparently at HHS, should not the person in charge of all four go?
Lazy assed n,,,,,numbskull.
To save time, he could go Kevorkian.
I’m gonna be President SOON!
More like “going Bodmin.”
The media would see to it that WHEN they find out; it'll be blamed quite effectively on the Damned Conservatives!
Yeah, but do you want Joe Biden in charge?
Are you kidding?? I'll take Biden anytime over the America hating Kenyan!!
a doofus or an islamic marxists? easy choice!
More like Bullwinkle
The Cafe' Ame'ricain is officially SEQUESTERED!
“0bama has told us what he really thinks:”
Exactly so. He’s shown his true beliefs many times. However since most Americans no longer have any critical thinking skills they put their trust in “experts” to interpret the glaringly obvious.
Let’s look at a timeline. Obama can’t resign too quickly because the Democrats don’t have everything set up yet, and it would really look fishy. He can’t wait too long to resign, or the troubles will just keep getting worse. The Democrats have done a timeline. They already know when Obama will resign.
Not really. But at this point if it were to happen it would be a case of going from worse to bad.
Like many affirmative action candidates, he wanted the title, the perks, and the prestige-he wasn’t even thinking about the actual job. That never entered into his vision of being “Mr President”. That’s one reason he gets all bent out of shape when he’s forced to realise that he’s president, not king-just issuing decrees is so much easier than consulting Congress, the Constitution, and the law of the land.
