Skip to comments.Obama: Reporters tell me my ideas are 'great'

President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as great and tell him they are all good ideas.
Obama made the remarks in a speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., focused on the economy.
The address didnt include any new proposals on the economy, and Republicans criticized Obama for giving an address that was more of the same.
But Obama said the news media often praises his ideas.
"Its interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of youve said before; some of them sound great, but you can't get those through Congress. Republicans wont agree with you," Obama said.
Obama argued some Republicans privately agree with a lot of his ideas.
I know because theyve said so. But they worry theyll face swift political retaliation for cooperating with me, he said.

His ideas appeal to his fellow pinkos in the so-called “news” media.
I’ve always thought that until you realized how little you know, you aren’t really intelligent O hasn’t reached this point; he’s like the little kid whose parents don’t tell him he’s an insufferable little brat.
When a reporter designs a space shuttle then I might agree with them, until then, they’re only supposed to report the story, not become part of it. Narcissism is alive and well.
Doesn’t surprise me at all. What surprises me is that they can speak with their nosed so far up his ass or their mouths full of his ding dong.
That first encounter is still vivid in Brookss mind. I remember distinctly an image ofwe were sitting on his couches, and I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant, Brooks says, and Im thinking, a) hes going to be president and b) hell be a very good president.
Pretty much guaranteeing that they are not.
“Obama argued some Republicans privately agree with a lot of his ideas.”
The one thing this President does well is ....
obama pits one group against the other AND with this comment, each other!
Sad to say it works!! He is a pro at it, all you have to do is look at the last election.
You know why they are called “brown nosers?” Because when Zero stops suddenly their noses go up his arse.
Uh, are these the same “reporters” duped by the names Sum Ting Wong and Wi Tu Lo.
“Reporters” are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.
The reporters don’t want to be Breitbarted for telling the truth.
We want names. Who are these ignorant sycophants?
That reminds me of a children’s story about an emperor.
You mispelled even. It is not spelled m-o-r-e t-h-a-n.
Reporters may tell zero his ideas are great, it is just reality that is has issues with them.
nobama “misheard”. It wasn’t reporters but anonymous people in the street who said “Your ideas are bull sh**!”

Obama wants to put Band-Aids on our country's social and economic wounds and international relations illnesses when skilled drastic fiscal surgery and strong medicine in the diplomatic arena is needed. . He has no skills beyond handing out warm fuzzies. He sees his role as one of a grandfather; he never grasped the difficult role of what it takes to be a leader. And he might as well give everyone a "Linus" blanket and tell us all to go lay down and take a nap and it will all be better tomorrow.
Hoover with a new bag.
Once in a while even Obama tells the truth.
His becoming an “underground success” would involve a.......nope, don’t need to be wrestled to the ground today.
