Obama: Reporters tell me I have Ďall good ideasí
DailyCaller ^ | 07/25/2013

Posted on 07/28/2013 12:42:36 AM PDT by South40

After calling for Republicans in Congress to set aside “short-term politics,” President Barack Obama bragged that reporters support all of his economic plans in a speech given on Wednesday in Galensberg, Illinois.

“It’s interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some them of you’ve said before; some of them sound great, but you can’t get those through Congress. Republicans won’t agree with you,” Obama said.

So is he admitting what we all know to be true, that the media has a liberal bias?

He’s the idea president. Beyond that....if you can’t convert the ideas into reality....it’s pretty much a dead topic to discuss.

Marxism wasn’t Hussein’s idea. It was born in the 19th century.

Though it was tried by early American colonists in Massachusetts two centuries before Marx. It was such a disaster that it had to be abandoned (lest it turn into a White version of Detroit circa 1620).

It’s always been a disaster. That’s what gets me about this latest attempt by the American Marxists aka, democRAT party. Socialism has never worked but for some strange reason they believe it will in America. Kooky.

Sometimes, fertilizer doesn’t always come in 50lb. plastic bags from the store.

Sometimes, it comes from a teleprompter-driven poser selling Alinsky lies to idiot liberal masses, much to their joy.

In all fairness, this sounds like a mere figure of speech, i.e. a polite way of saying, "Even setting aside the issue as to whether those ideas have any merit, you still won't be able to get them passed."

US and Europe “developing countries”..

HAHAHA the net is replete with Englishmen warning and pleading with the US in an effort to persuade them not to continue down the rabbit hole of government mandated socialist universal healthcare. Indeed they are devising ways to extricate themselves from their chains...I WONDER WHY THIS IS?

There’s and old German saw that goes ‘IF YOU CANNOT LISTEN THEN YOU MUST FEEL’

I believe that Zero stopped emotionally and intellectually developing at a very young age. This is typically of many lefties. He's a post-moddrn president for a post-modern age. There are no absolutes, principles are optional, everything is just peachy except when you cross them. Then, you'll be vilified and suffer. Neitszche was right in a tragic way. When God is dead to us, the Übermensch is the only logical outcome and it is always bad.

The King’s new clothes...
The chamberlains who were to carry the train held their hands just above the floor as if they were picking up the train. As they walked they pretended to hold the train high, for they could not let anyone notice that they could see nothing.

The emperor walked beneath the beautiful canopy in the procession, and all the people in the street and in their windows said, “Goodness, the emperor’s new clothes are incomparable! What a beautiful train on his jacket. What a perfect fit!” No one wanted it to be noticed that he could see nothing, for then it would be said that he was unfit for his position or that he was stupid. None of the emperor’s clothes had ever before received such praise.
