Obama complains that his policies are ‘contested’
Daily Caller ^ | 2/26/14 | Neil Munro

Posted on 02/26/2014 5:00:22 PM PST by Libloather

President Barack Obama told his most loyal supporters Tuesday night that he relies on them to break through widespread media criticism of his policies.

“Information is so contested, and people are separated from how they get news, that oftentimes to break through, what’s necessary is the validation of a neighbor or a friend, or a coworker, or a family member,” he told roughly 60 leaders of his on-the-ground group, Organizing for Action.

“It doesn’t work if we don’t have folks on the ground who are speaking out on behalf of these issues and these values… [but OFA members can] reach people where they live — at the kitchen table and at the water cooler at work,” he told his followers, during a 7:20 p.m. dinner speech at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington D.C.

I swear. The Narcissistic Little Marxist Bastard acts like a spoiled little brat.

No wonder the rest of the world holds him in such complete contempt.

Putin is contesting Obama by building a base in Cuba. Russia could soon own most of the oil and gas drilling companies in the USA (they are already the biggest player in the Bakken) and sell us back our own gas and oil. Obama, like all ivy league liberals, can’t see the forest for the trees.

“Nowhere has there been more misinformation...than in healthcare," said Obama

For example:

"If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it. Period."

It means that he thinks the FCC SHOULD be in very newsroom guiding the choice of news and how it is reported.

And he will get back to that.

Even Augustine and Martin Luther King r. would contest Obama’s policies:

“An unjust law is no law at all.”
- Augustine (quoted by MLK in Letter from a Birmingham jail)

Life is full of tribulations when you are a dicktator, there always seems to people that prefer to dwell in freedom and truth rather than bow to and glorify you. May he find a little piece of earth that he can rule for eternity, I don’t care where, as long as it’s not here.

Information is so contested, and people are separated from how they get news

Bathhouse Barry just admitted that the Corporate Media monopoly on the dissemination of news has been broken. Will this translate into breaking the Globalist Bankster/GOPe/Democrat monopoly on political power or will they just dispense with the whole "free society" pretense and clamp down with the NSA/TSA/DHS/Fusion Center/militarized local police state even harder?

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth”

“Politics has become so toxic,” he complained...

What an absolute jug of feces. He does NOT need boots on the ground. OFA is nothing more than a propaganda ministry TELLING people what Obama is going to do with or without congress. OFA are the ground troops he will use to propagandize the faithful and demonize (harass) the opponents. The man is a filthy little dictator.

I realize that the Job of the SS it to protect the CiC but aren’t they sworn peace officers? Don’t they have an obligation to arrest that POS ? Don’t they investigate financial crimes? Isn’t Bathhouse Barry a financial crime on steriods?

"Contested" policies, Odumbo?
A far better descriptive term is "UNCONSTITUTIONAL" policies.
For God's sake, when are some adults going to shut this clown down and impeach his ass?

He contests and violates 0-care all the time. If 0bama wants to find someone that opposes 0bama’s policies, he just needs to look at a picture of himself a few months or years ago.
He was against health care individual mandate in 2007-8
He was against gay marriage
He was against the proliferation of EOs
He was against the senate nuclear option for approving judges.
He was against raising the debt ceiling.
He wanted to close Guantanamo.
The answer must be that his white half is racist against his black half.

Will Obama go down with th ship or snake away? He is not planning anything save to destroy a functioning country. A business with leadership this incompetent is ripe for takeover by friend or foe.
