Skip to comments.Obama: Republicans Hate You
Posted on 08/11/2013 8:10:27 AM PDT by Kaslin
Republicans relish the idea of impoverished people across the nation dying slow agonizing deaths without access to healthcare. At least, thats what our President believes. Holding a press conference right before his luxurious vacation in Marthas Vineyard (which I hear is fantastic this time of year) the President said that the one unifying principle the Republican Party has, is making sure that 30 million people dont have health-care. The comment was absurd, disingenuous, and indicative of Liberals inability to defend their ideas.
The comment was made in regards to three conservative Republicans who are leading an effort to essentially defund the Affordable Care Act. Republican Sens. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Marco Rubio are calling on the GOP to vote down any continuing resolution (those bills we use to fund the Federal Government when Harry Reid refuses to pass a budget) that includes funding for Obamacare. Oh. . . And it turns out that far from being unifying, the move is creating deep rifts within the GOP.
Internal GOP Politics aside, the idea has generated an impressive amount of angst among top Democrats. But at heart is the Presidents ridiculous assertion that the GOP, represented by these three anti-establishment members, is motivated by apparent callousness and sadism.
The left routinely employs over-the-top rhetoric to discredit the messengers rather than the message. To assert that an entire political party is motivated by the desire to see American citizens without health insurance should be beneath any President. Animosity toward the Affordable Care Act resides mostly in the legislations uncanny ability to reduce job growth, add to the Federal Budget, increase taxes, and hike premiums.
But, according to the President, opponents of the Legislation simply hate poor people. Our national community organizer, Barack Obama, is not the only person who believes this. In fact, it is a foundational principle of Liberalism: Opponents are not merely wrong in their thinking, or misguided in their efforts, but intrinsically opposed to wide spread prosperity and betterment of the human condition.
The Presidents petty remarks about a handful of GOP senators is not aimed at encouraging reconciliation or bipartisanship. It is aimed at portraying his political opposition as cruel and uncaring. An odd characterization as he heads to vacation while his constituency continues to struggle in unemployment and an ailing economy. What is so curious about the Presidents moral arrogance, is the fact that little good has ever come from Progressive ideas. In fact, human suffering, a deterioration of the human condition, and ultimate devolution of individual liberty are all consequences of progressive concepts. . (Click here to read their atrocious record on civil rights, as an example.)
Mr. President, your signature piece of legislation has forced millions from their full time job. It has forced millions more into increased premiums, ironically making coverage less affordable. Your reform has increased dependence on the government, diminished individual liberty, reduced private control of health care decisions, and introduced cold (uncaring) bureaucracy into the most intimate portion of Americans lives. (And Im not even mentioning the HHSs attempts to force religious organizations and individuals to act against their conscience.)
Shame on you Mr. President. Under your watch, more Americans are experiencing hardship than any time in the past decade. If compassion is the litmus test for reasonable political action, Cruz, Rubio and Lee should be applauded, as they are fighting for an increase in the only condition that has ever lead to widespread prosperity: Liberty.
Besides, Obamacare is still expected to leave 20 some-odd million Americans uninsured. But thats okay, because the IRS will simply tax those people. Now thats compassion.
I went to a Republican lunch and said to one lady “I am looking for Conservatives” and she said “well we are Republicans”. I wanted to puke
I hate most republican politicians. So, I’ll put Obama in the group just to be fair and balanced. They talk. I decide.
This was clearly the “take away” sound bite from that presser. I’ve seen it over and over in the past few days. But, it passes without any comment; as though he had said the most mundane thing, rather than a remark that is at best hyperbolic and at worst scurrilous.
Just like Reid slandering Romney (his co-religionist, so much for Mormon nice, maybe that doesn’t exist) by saying he “didn’t pay his taxes”. (I’m quoting from memory.) I’m quite sure Mitt Romney has paid millions in dollars in taxes and one thing he’s never been accused of is dishonesty, but, it didn’t matter. I didn’t hear one MSM talking head say: hey, that’s a pretty disgraceful thing to say about Romney. Of course not, they’re the same group that ran a multi-thousand word expose of some high school nonsense on the front page of the Washington Post.
Meanwhile Republicans make innocuous errors, or use infelicitous phrases, and the media makes a 5 day, 4 year, or lifetime circus out of it.
I’m not a big Romney fan, he is only the most recent example of this type of abuse. He seems to be a decent, hardworking, well-intentioned person. Can we blame any other such a one from refusing to enter politics?
We can have all the arguments we like about Rinos vs. Staunch Conservatives or whether or not Marco Rubio is dead (to me, he is); but we will NEVER win as long as the MSM is in the other team’s corner and the vast majority of people (who’d rather kill themselves before reading FR or any of our counterparts here or on the left) get the majority of their info from them. And yes, that includes the entertainment divisions, remember Murphy Brown and Dan Quayle.
Republicans relish the idea of impoverished people across the nation dying slow agonizing deaths without access to healthcare. At least, thats what our President believes.
No!!! That is not what the President believes.
That is more of the pure unadulterated BS that Obama keeps feeding the idiots that voted for him.
Those poor fools will not know what hit them when Obamacare gets rolling.
When Doctors refuse to work for the pay that Government allows, them, When thousands of Hospitals close down.
When they get hit by the Death panels, all the while with Obama hiring the semi-literate to run the program.
Republicans: They Want You Dead.
Shame on us for refusing to be enslaved, because if we have to fund someone else’s “right”, it is slavery.
Why can’t we simply state this truth over and over until the immature freeloaders understand?
Require a passed budget.
You just know the dems would do this.
The budget will show the absurdity of 0bama’s spending. That’s why they don’t want to do one...
THEN argue to defund 0bamacare AND EPA AND etc...
Hey kenyan... to love America is to despise EVERYTHING that you rats and the republican party elite believe in and stand for... savvy you muzzie pos????
Your /s says it all, and its perfect
Total libertarian third party bunk
You have to remember that liberals love to project their feelings to others. That arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave is not any different the rest of the rats
Sorry but that is nothing but third party talking points. I consider myself also conservative, but I don’t feel like you do
Not just Republicans.
Any sound that comes out of a demon-crats mouth accusing anyone of anything is their version of this is what they are really doing to you.
Being the narcissist in chief he projects mightily and doth protest too much.
As far as the demon Hillary being anointed next ruler well she shouldn’t count her demons before they hatch.
Jesus rebuke her! and oMao too!
Hillary being anointed next ruler well she shouldnt count her demons before they hatch.
Now that's Funny!
I don't disagree with your comment, but that really wasn't the take-away point from the title and from the article.
Right now, O is playing the 2014 Mid-term Game---everything he says and does is intended to hang on to Dem power----they are paranoid about losing the Senate and Repubs hanging onto the House.
Rush brought up a significant point on Greta Sunday night. "2010 midterms was one of the biggest shellackings the Democrat Party had had in a long time. Republicans took back the House....Democrats lost a total, nationwide, all the way down the ballot of over 600 seats, and it was because of Obamacare and the rising debt......and the Tea Party showing up...."
MY CONCLUSIONS In Obama, we're up against a seasoned, practiced conman. I gather some of the Repubs are onto him---could explain slow-walking Imig/reform, and so on.
Obama and the Dems are really desperate---they hafta win back the House in 2014 and keep the Senate. They cannot risk another 2010---as the scandals against Obama mount.
So cool con artist Obama poses as the "Good Guy"----trying not to "overreach"---separated from the "phony" scandals---appearing as a genial, cool, love-America guy on Leno----to save 2014, to protect the American people from those "evil Repubs."
A lot of the political kabuki theatre we are seeing is O and the Dems baiting the Pubbies to overreach.
Obama is resorting to more and more desperation measures.
Another case of liberals inability to defend their ideas.
What Obama thinks is meaningless he has one goal and it’s socialism and government control over every thing that the public uses and needs.
"Nice suckup, Harry. That's why we nicknamed you Sugarlips Reid."
Isn't it odd that Dems can't seem to grab onto a message that resonates with the public these days....even w/ all that "magic" in the WH?
Mmmmmmm.....sure would like to see Dem's internal polls. As we get closer to the crucial midterms.....and as Obama's approval ratings sink---he's down to 41%....more and more Dems are scared to death.
FReeper whatsup insightfully posted: Dems thought they would be WAAAAY ahead in polls by now, due to their beating img/reform to death. (Cackle) the longer these issues twist in the wind the more America sides with the GOP ... does not bode well for Dems chances in 2014 midterms.
They can't get no traction nohow.
Exactly. It is what he says, but not necessarily what he believes.
“Republicans relish the idea of impoverished people across the nation dying slow agonizing deaths without access to healthcare. At least, thats what our President believes. “
Yeah, like Terri Schiavo. Oh, but wait; it was democrats who wanted to dehydrate her to death.
The president and all prominent democrats make outlandish and inflamatory statements and then claim to be offended because of Republicans being uncivil or questioning their patriotism.
Well I do not question it. I know they have no patriotism or honor or civility. They are murderers, rapists, thieves and habitual liars. They are not merely traitors of this nation but also of humanity.
And whatever they accuse conservatives of is simply trying to deflect attention from what they know their own motives are. They delight in atrocity and injustices while they spread their filth around the globe.
Truth is Obama wants Republicans dead.
The community organizer is just beneath the surface of this guy.
I belong to one of the larger Republican Party executive committees in the nation - and I've yet to meet a member who was not a true-blue conservative. (I came in as a Tea Party "infiltrator"). I've seen power brokers within the party give up their positions to support candidates like Herman Cain, who was certainly a conservative.
It is the folks at the very top of the GOP who are motivated by things other than conservativism, and with good participation those folks can be flushed down the toilet.
Thanks alot numbnuts. BTW, you are the worst President in US history. Get the hell out of my life.
Faced with a party that tirelessly screams for the killing of ever-more-millions of babies, Republicans have been unable to seize the moral high ground. That’s how pathetic they are.
“There are good people on both sides of this issue (the killing of babies).” That’s the standard Republican line.
I have warned freepers during the 2012 election that we should not ignore the House and Senate elections and many have by either staying home because they did not want to vote for our presidential candidate, or rather vote for a third party candidate who had no chance whatsoever to get elected.
I refuse to vote for a rat president, congress man or Senator. I rather hold my nose if I have to, but I will not vote for a third party candidate
My warning continues for the 2014 election> Will they listen?
Of course 0bama is all about love, specifically self-love. He really is a loathsome human being.
On Facebook John Cornyn says he wants to defund ObamaCare but we all know he doesn’t really mean it. We all know Bonehead wants to fund ObamaCare “It’s the law, it will be funded”... he said THAT during the campaign last year.
I want that arrogant pos to fail because he is nothing but a lying rat.
The GOP is doing everything it can think of to lose the House in 2014 with amnesty.
Could not agree more. We don't need a third party---we need to takeover the Repub party from the stupid establishment losers.
That's very easy to do. We have the issues America will vote for---IRS haters are legion and young voters are incensed by NSA snooping Facebook, blackberries, etc.
RNC can't use these issues unless we say so.
LAUGH BREAK Ohaha's numbers are sinking fast---down to 41%---imperiling Dems re/elections. They---not us---will want to rid themselves of this millstone.
Hey Abbott, Who hates What on Third again?
Dn't need n Weatherman t see which waybama's wind
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."
Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
I hate paying for all your free stuff.....
The way to take over the GOP is to refuse to hold your nose and vote for a RINO
Lots of folks feel the same way. The GOP needs to understand that if they want to win elections. The base can't be taken for granted anymore.
Political parties are just labor unions for politicians.
There has to be a second party before there can be a third party.
He doesn't care.
