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 law’s 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.

That’s a slight exaggeration. Slight.

And always-pugnacious senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer took to CNN to compare Republicans to terrorists. And kidnappers. And arsonists.

Here’s Pfeiffer on CNN’s 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.”

And

“The Republicans have provided a laundry list of essentially ransom demands.”

And

“What we're not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest.”

That’s 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 can’t 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 government’s 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.

Bammy is a 1%er Occupier (like Reid and Pelosi) now.

McConnell needs to call him on it.

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.

McConnell doesn't have the cajones to confront obama but he has no problem attacking Ted Cruz. He's a punk who left his lips implanted on Berry's ass.

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.

Having studied the concept of leadership and held leadership positions for the last 40 years, I can say with absolute 100% certainty that B. H. Obama is the perfect antithesis of leadership! Obama falls into my special category of people: Some people don't know anything - Obama doesn't even SUSPECT anything! God help us.

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!

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.

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!
