Obama: Obamacare critics are 'desperate' fat-cat Fox News watchers
Olivier Knox, Yahoo News 1 hour ago
President Barack Obama went nuclear this week in his attacks on Republicans trying to derail the Affordable Care Act, painting the controversial laws opponents as fat-cats who watch too much Fox News. Or freeloaders. Or the Koch Brothers. Or folks who think the Fugitive Slave Act and Obamacare are equally terrible.
Thats a slight exaggeration. Slight.
And always-pugnacious senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer took to CNN to compare Republicans to terrorists. And kidnappers. And arsonists.
Heres Pfeiffer on CNNs The Lead :
It is not a negotiation if I show up at your house and say give me everything inside or I'm going to burn it down.
The Republicans have provided a laundry list of essentially ransom demands.
What we're not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest.
Thats some take-no-prisoners stuff, only days before Americans can sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act and the government might shut down if congressional Republicans and the White House cant agree on a spending plan for fiscal 2014 by Tuesday.
The strategy is not without risks, like alienating good-faith skeptics about the law. But Democrats say it serves multiple purposes. It rallies the troops ahead of the 2014 elections (mid-term elections are generally thought of as decided by the parties core or base supporters). It also turns signing up for Obamacare into a blow against some of liberals' favorite targets. And it aims to transform the discussion about Obamacare from a philosophical dispute about the governments role in health care into a fight over benefits.

Its amusing to observe the behavior of petulant narcissists when they are opposed by serious people.
Ok everyone, over to Yahoo to highlight President Empty Chair’s hissy fit. Something is really getting to him.....wonder what it could be?
You mean like James Hoffa of the Teamsters?
Don’t forget “Poopy-Head, Poopy-Head!! Nyah, Nyah”
McConnell needs to call him on it.
Now THAT is a genius ‘communicator’ and a born leader!!!
I am not a fat cat fox news watcher, but I am an obamacare critic. I’m just part of a family of four. All four of us work. We have a house in the burbs, a dog, and a fence. I drive a six year old hatchback. Going out to dinner maybe once a month is a treat. We are far from fat cats. Yet obamacare has already cost us more in health care premiums and reduced our choices. obama is out of touch. Willfully out of touch. He wants his policies, he wants his control, he wants his big socialist / fascist government and the rest of us, our rights and freedoms can go hang. This is one of the reasons I’m an obamacare critic.
Mr. Obama is like the annoying person you work with that you go home and make fun of while you’re eating dinner. Except he’s the president. And up is down, and black is white.
Fox News bashed Ted Cruz, its the RINO channel
It seems they don’t mind being the official bogeyman
Well, black is actually half black...
The Chicago Mafia trots out their violent language one more time. Maybe it will scare the gullible college kids, but most people have more sense. And those skulls full of mush will one day be paying all the bills. They won’t admit voting for BO then.
Typical mindless strawman spewed forth from the vile, demonic, retard...
Fox News is all I got, dude. When I can no longer stand the sound of Sponge Bob in the background, and I want adult entertainment (lol). It’s either that, or stab myself in the neck to the tune of CNN or MSNBC. What’s in your background at 5pm when you’re home? I need noise.
I always forget that:) Did we ever find out the real race/nationality of his origin? He seems like he can morph into whatever he needs to be. Maybe his parents were Power Rangers!
Now we see the REAL Obama.
Petty, vindictive and dangerous.
I take offense with that fox news watcher slur.
He’s saving the race card for future play.
But Iran's still on the table?
I'd sure rather be that, then a narcissistic gay Muslim America-hating ally-alienating affirmative-action hopeless crack-headed incompetent vacation-abusing bad-golfing petulant childlike Communist anarchist Islamic-extremist pillow-biting freak, like Obama.
Yes, better comparison. It’s all cool again. I should have never thrown my old toys out. Who knew I would be using them to describe the leader of the free world?
The only fat cats I see are the Big Dems on Wall Street getting $85 billion a month from the Fed. That the Repubs are the fat cats today is a sorry joke, it is a myth they live to retell.
Didn’t know the disciples of Alinsky watched FNC:
SEIU on strike over Obamacare-related cuts
The Kenyan’s hatred of FOX proves that he can’t handle the truth.
MAKE DC LISTEN: TELL YOUR SENATORS TO OPPOSE CLOTURE ON H.J. RES 59
We must oppose cloture on H. J. Res. 59, so that Harry Reid and Senate Democrats cannot sneak in funding for Obamacare. We need you to call your Senators right now: tell them to oppose cloture on H.J. Res 59 and remind them that a vote for cloture IS a for funding Obamacare.

If you are in opposition to tyranny, then you must be targeted and demonized. The hope is that eventually, after blaming the opposition for the failures, that the public will turn against them. Once that happens, re-education camps and “elimination” is pretty easy.....
Just dictators doing what they do best!
Doesn’t Fox News command higher viewership than CNN, ABC, NBC, and CBS combined?
Strange times when the 800lb media gorilla is singled out like they’re a fringe group.
For that comment I get to call the bastard the Prick-in-Chief.
