Obama lets rip on trip out of Washington
Yahoo News ^ | 10 Jul 2014 | Steve Holland

Posted on 07/10/2014 5:50:43 PM PDT by mandaladon

AUSTIN Texas (Reuters) - President Barack Obama may look back on this week as the time when he dropped all pretense of political decorum and let all his frustrations with Washington gridlock spill forth.

Obama's public speeches on a three-day trip, like the one he delivered at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, on Thursday, covered many of the same talking points he delivers at Democratic fund-raising events.

But the tone was significantly sharper.

In fact, the slashing rhetoric he used before an adoring crowd in the Texas capital may well have surpassed the typically sober review of the status of Washington that he lays out for high-dollar Democratic donors.

Obama has a long list of grievances with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, who have blocked much of his second-term agenda. Problem No. 1 is the lawsuit that House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner is threatening to file over what Republicans feel is Obama's wanton use of executive orders to skirt around congressional inertia. "You hear some of 'em, 'sue him, impeach him,'" Obama said, then added a sarcastic, "Really?"

"For what? You're going to sue me for doing my job? OK. I mean, think about that, you're going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job, while you don't do your job?"

The crowd applauded.

"I remember going to a bar, club, or honky-tonk around here and singing on stage. I wasn't very good. But people were enthusiastic," he said at a fund-raiser at a private home in Austin...................I had to laugh at this...he says he wasn't very good...he's never been good!

"What I've said to my team is 'get me out of Washington,'” the president told donors at the event...................I say get him out of the US and send him to wherever he came from.

Nobody takes Hussein seriously anymore.

At least, I certainly hope not.

Well, it only took 5+ years but he has finally given me a common ground that I can enthusiastically back.

He almost ‘had’ me before when I turned his “hope and change” into ‘HOPE FOR A CHANGE’.

Remember GOPe still wants our money AND says ‘we’ should get along with BO....

Well GOPe, hope in one hand and $hiite in the other and let me know which one fills up first.

I heard on my Tucson radio station, on the commentary part, Obama was heckled, and the hecklers were angry that he was not doing more to help the conquistadors.

Obama had to ask them to quiet down, and did not ask that they be escorted out from their positions in the front of his podium.

At one point he told them, “I’m on your side. “

Supposedly that was left out of the transcript that was sent over the wires.

The President is on the verge of an EPIC public crackup that will destroy his Presidency. Now is the time to double down, put the pressure on, and push him over the edge.

"I remember going to a bar, club, or honky-tonk around here and singing on stage. I wasn't very good."

Love the fake humility to endear himself to those fat women who write to prisoners.

This guy just makes sh*t up out of thin air. He's been doing this since he turned tricks for blow and cigarettes in high school. He would deliberately dupe people and then laugh at them for being so stupid as to have believed him. (I paraphrase his classmate.)

He laughs to himself that anyone even gets mad over what he says. This guy has never connected to another human being in his entire life. He doesn't understand that there is actually a world out there where people care about each other, do things for each other. He lives, basically, on an emotional moon. He kicks 10 people over? Heck, I'd kick over a pile of gritty rock and dust if I was bored and alone on the moon. I'd probably just play golf all day. Maybe run for president or something. Stir up some trouble, pretend like there is life here, and then see what it does when I set fire to it. He's just a bored kid on the moon with no shade and a giant magnifying glass, hallucinating America as an ant hill where he can burn as many people as he likes when he feels like it.

Just a psychotic, lonely kid on an 80 mile moon walk. That's what's going on his head.

Like Honey Badger, O don't give a sh*t.

Barack Obama.

People in Austin were REALLY happy with the traffic congestion his motorcades caused here today. Even some people who voted for his sorry *** were late for work and madder than hell. Hope they enjoyed the delays.

Just in case, the first sentence was very sarcastic.

Exactly. He is pissed Senator Cruz laid this at his feet on the senate floor yesterday and Gov. Perry is publicly shaming him by reminding the Country he asked for help years ago and told Nero their was a problem.

But Nero:s biggest problem is his own Spokesclown Jay Carney stated two years
Ago the Border was secure.

V.J should get all the sharp objects out of the whitehouse. Otherwise we could see a real life version of The new sheriff arriving in Blazing Saddles.

Anyone who does can be certain he will never become more foolish, just as someone standing at the top of Mount Everest will never climb a higher mountain on this planet.

Anyone who took him seriously for more than thirty minutes back in 2008 was very foolish, anyone who still does is hopelessly separated from reality.

He’s raising big money for the Senate races.
The crony capitalists and Hollyweird libs are ante-ing up serious dough.

Republicans may have an enthusiasm advantage this fall but it looks like the Dems will have plenty of election $$$ firepower.

No, Obama IS OFFENSIVE.

Since he “lets rip”, we have to name the presidential fart.

Sounds like he is on the stump raising money and getting political ious for his next Presidential race, which should be a cakewalk.
I discount any chance of any form of breakdown/meltdown will ever be reported by the MSM.

All he wants to do is overtly provoke, mock, insult, and ridicule anyone or anything that stands between him and his desires.

He’s a boy in a mans body, the kind who never grew up to manhood, the kind who you see in High School, we’d call them a punk-aZZ kid.

The country is legitimately divided and what does he want to do…issue pictures of himself on a Throne, laugh n the face of Gov. Perry during his meeting, play pool and gratuitously joe it up, and then go out a pick fight.

How is that leadership, simple truth is its not.

He’s a punk who can’t have his way so he’s going to ridicule and mock and provoke those he doesn’t see eye to eye with.

We need a man to lead our Nation and we have a punk who’s happy to double down and get in your face and say - I’m going to let it rip.

NerObama playing pool while America burns by the onslaught of open border illegals flooding in to overwhelm our system.

Thank you one and all for whomever voted for this man-child.

I think you are right. He’s acting like a 17 year old boy, not a 52 year old man that is POTUS. He acts punch drunk or high mocking American citizens and it’s laws, but Boehner refuses to impeach probably because they have something on him. I’m really scared of ISIS coming here. It will be Boehner’s fault just as much as it is Hussein’s.

Now I say that is some of my money not so well spent but I would rather spend it on a suit of tar and feathers, a rail and possible length of hemp if tried and convicted of treason.

Now that is some taxpayer money well spent
