7 Ways Obama Basically Called Republicans Bums Today
ABC News ^ | August 1, 2014 | Not Attributed ...

Posted on 08/01/2014 4:25:10 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

As if to say, "don't let the door hit you on your way out," President Obama -- on the eve of the August Congressional recess -- decided to take a big swat at Republican lawmakers today.

It was clear the president was in the mood for a summer scolding. Here are seven ways the president basically called Republicans bums today:

1. 'They're Not Even Trying'

2. So Sue Me?

3. Diplomatic Delay

4. ‘A Little More Extreme'

5. They Can't Even Agree With Themselves

6. ‘Congress Is Failing'

7. Problem Solving? Not So Much

ALINSKY RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

So helpful of ABC to expand on Obama's criticism of his opponents.

Its hard to believe these toads would still want to carry this loser's water, but they are. May they end up in the same sewage pit he and his reputation are bound for.

Rush completely articulated this point today. Said the Republicans were desperate to pass ANYTHING, knowing the regime would block it, then the clarion call would go out that Obama needed to do something.

There's simply no leadership or principle within the GOP. They'd make a buoy stand at attention.

At least "journalists" are more respected than politicians - just not by much.

It is my experience that all libs think they are the smartest people in the room.

They think of themselves in celebrity status. Their presence is necessary, and in demand.

Haven’t met one yet I didn’t want to kick their a__’s.

There was a time when a Kenyan would get a boot in the ass for calling an American a “bum”. The feminization of the American male has been a huge success.

Unfortunately based on personal experience of his yearssssss
in office I can say without fear of argument, that his Italian Dictator Arrogance is completely believable the only unknown is how far he can or will go in his quest for believability. None of us should be surprised any more ever.

Look, we have a Constitution, we have a bicameral legislature. Americans ELECTED the House of Representatives and they are (more or less) doing what the electorate wants them to do, that is, obstruct the president. Obama’s options are 1) work to get his party control of the House, or 2) Work out a deal with them (i.e. compromise). Obama, being a smarmy narcissist, who only wants to get his own way, chooses option 3) incessantly whine.

Agreed! He's fixed Gaza real good. And the Bungling at the Border. Which would be a great name for a movie.

The Speaker needs only reply;

“2 months ago the President recommended that we do away with the 2008 law restricting the return of illegal immigrant children to their country of origin. Today he’s no longer willing to accept his own recommendation.”

“Until the President makes up his own mind, he would be advised to refrain from criticizing the deliberations of the majority in the House.”

This is yet another reason why Obama is a failure. Even if everything he said was true (and it isn’t), he is elected to work with congress and get legislation passed. Certainly there will be disagreements and politics etc etc....all Presidents deal with that. Obama, by calling out his political opponents, poisons the well of negotiation. I’ll say it again, Obama is in way over his head. He does not respect about 70% of the country and absolutely loathes half of it.

Obama has tyrannical tendencies and he obviously thinks he was elected to run the Democratic Party using the tools of the US government...instead of running the the US government as a democrat.

Dear lord, make this faker go away.

I think that Obama is madder at the House holding back his 3.8 billion than anything else he has ever been hit with. The underlying message here to our tone-deaf Congress is that the purse (aka the House) really is his Achilles heel.

Exactly. In the private sector a CEO who constantly blamed the board of directors for his poor results would be fired. Post haste.

Crypto-Islam is the secret adherence to Islam while publicly professing to be of another faith; people who practice crypto-Islam are referred to as “crypto-Muslims”.

The word has mainly been used in reference to Spanish Muslims during the Inquisition (i.e., the Moriscos and their usage of Aljamiado).
Related to this term are the concepts of crypto-Muslim subgroups, such as crypto-Sunni Muslims and crypto-Shia Muslims.

Each of these Muslim subgroups has suffered persecution at various times under various leaders where it was advantageous to appear as part of the dominant (sometimes also Muslim) group.-Wiki

If you saw what what I’ve seen in regard to the spending that was already allocated for this pre- planned invasion from 2011 - present you’d know they’ve already spent way too much money giving grants to the shelters and enormous contracts to the company providing transportation services to the illegal immigrants. These amounts didn’t include DACA allocations or social services they would need. He had this Cloward - Piven move planned years ago. You look at that info and the field intel the illegals are providing about the news articles / social media that they heard / read / were told about its obvious it originated from the WH and originated from the U.S. they were told to come to the U.S. and that the would receive “free amnesty”, welfare benefits, housing, healthcare, and an education. Every piece is starting to lay in place now.
