Rep. James Clyburn: Obama is real target of GOP health care battles
washingtontimes.com ^ | October 01, 2013 | Jacqueline Klimas

Rep. James E. Clyburn, South Carolina Democrat, said that the budget fights on the Hill are about undercutting President Obama and his presidency, not his landmark health care law.

“This is about the president, not his program per se,” Mr. Clyburn, a member of the House Democratic leadership, said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.”

Yep - you got us! all that liberty and private property and constitutions stuff was just smoke screen. We just hate Obama because he is half white, so we shut down the government.

Typical friggin’ Democrat harrassment.

These people are like the anus orifice spectators supporting the opposing team behind the cage shouting inane nonsense to rattle the batter, make the batter indecisive, and ultimately make the batter screwup.

A successful ball player ignores the anus orifice’s chatter, and goes on to win.

Ah yes, the race card. Yeah, we know where you’re going with this Mr. Clyburn. Funny, how that hasn’t stopped you and the rest of the Democratic Party from attacking Ted Cruz full bore. Oh, but since he’s a “sellout” minority I guess he doesn’t count. The Democrats are a one trick pony and their act is beyond old and lame.

I don’t give a c$$p about Obama. He is just a single symptom of a sick and decaying system. If it weren’t him, it would be someone else just as bad.

The blacks makes a solid phalanx. They accept that he is using them. They have no clue about the end result for the black community.

You know, I’m almost at the point of saying, “Damn right!” when I’m accused (along with other conservatives) of being a racist. YEAH! I despise President Obama for no reason other than the color of his skin. My hatred has absolutely nothing to do with policy. It’s all about race!

And this shutdown? Damn right! Its got nothing to do with Obamacare or even wanting to reign in spending. It’s all about Obama’s skin! He’s black, you know, and we conservatives can’t abide that.

If leftists truly believe their own rhetoric, they are sick, sick puppies! I’m talking mentally ill. It’s actually more comforting to me to believe they know they’re full of crap but are spewing lies for political advantage. If, on the other hand, they really, really think all of this is about Obama’s skin, they are delusional. I’m talking bat shit crazy.

I don’t dislike Obama because he is Black or because he is a Democrat, I dislike him because he hates America and everything it stands for and is actively working to destroy America.

Obama is the real t a r g e t. They’re intentionally using these kinds of words. Just like Obama said the republicans are on a “crusade”.

You just told the republican politicians and talking heads what they need to be saying in response to every attack. “You’re against Cruz because he’s Hispanic. You’re racist.” And if it’s an Hispanic liberal say “If a conservative black can be racist, then a liberal Hispanic can be racist.”

Mastador1: “I don’t dislike Obama because he is Black or because he is a Democrat, I dislike him because he hates America and everything it stands for and is actively working to destroy America.”

No matter what you write or think, the left will still claim it’s racism, so go ahead and admit it. If President Obama was white, we’d love everything about him.

If we aint by now we probably ought to be. I can’t think of any black or white man or woman who has done more to drive a wedge between all races and groups. I’m thinking we should open the election to Maine Cooncats. They would do a better job, be cheaper, and they don’t talk as damn much. I can’t think of a human I trust enough to vote for. Before someone decides to say Cooncat is code for race my Cooncat is part black.

Not a Chance, I didn’t like LBJ, Carter or Clinton, can’t remember much of Kennedy but my parents were Democrats until what they saw in that election.

All these proponents must have their noses firmly in Zero’s butt-crack. It seems that their lives revolve around him to the point they think everyone else also has no room for thoughts other than about the ‘adored won”.

Really, this is the line I keep hearing from leftist, after which there’s no further attempt to reason. My comment is simply “When you close all doors to negotiation, don’t be surprised when people stop trying to negotiate. You won’t like what comes next.”

The government certified IDIOT James E. Clyburn is my Congresscritter and that’s only because his district keeps expanding amoebalike; it recently engulfed my house. He has a lifetime sinecure, no doubt.

There’s hope: Lindsey Tinkerbelle is on the skids & South Carolina is in much better shape conservatism-wise than our neighbor to the north (hint: N.C. stands for Northern Commieland).

I’m chasing a rumor that during our late debate over the Confederate flag that Clyburn was heard to ask, “How many honkies does it take to screw in a light bulb?”

If you ever visit Columbia, check out the James E. Clyburn pedestrian overpass on Hwy 277. Puts the Taj Mahal to shame. A shining monument to our taxpayer dollars.

Clyburn is the last rat standing in the South Carolina congressional delegation. He’s kept around as the state’s honorary Crazy Aunt in the Attic. He keeps the state’s padded-room industry alive.
