Jesse Jackson: Back off Obama and solve some problems
Chicago Sun Times ^ | 8/17/10 | Jesse Jackson

Posted on 08/17/2010 12:58:32 PM PDT by truthandlife

merican politics isn't beanbag. It is rough, bare-knuckled and often dirty. In today's 24/7 media environment, attack ads are remembered, and the truth has a hard time catching up with a lie. We now have entire TV networks that are essentially ideological propaganda outlets. With Republicans consolidated as the party of white sanctuary, anchored in the South, and Democrats championing diversity and inclusion, the politics of race is accentuated.

But given all that, have we ever witnessed anything like the unrelenting assault on Barack Obama? "Birther" nonsense is believed by some 40 percent of Republicans. Staggering numbers think he's a Muslim. National Republican leaders denounce his "socialist" agenda. When the first lady takes a vacation with her daughters, it's a scandal. Senior senators embarrass themselves by endorsing the big lie of "death panels" in the health care bill. Republicans openly decided that they would obstruct virtually everything the president tried to do. Zero votes for financial reform in the House. Zero votes for the recovery act. Zero votes for health care reform. Judicial and governmental nominees blocked for months by senatorial "holds" grounded on nothing but wanting to obstruct the operation of the government. Now every major vote is met with a filibuster, in numbers we've never seen before, rendering the Senate virtually dysfunctional.

Compared to the attacks the Left made on W, this is nothing more than Obama getting a good feather dusting.

Back off Boogaloo
I said
back off Boogaloo
Come on

Boo.

What d’yer think you’re gonna do

Wake up meat head don’t pretend that.
You are dead get yourself up off the cart.
Get yourself together now
and give me something tasty.
Everything you try to do

Back off Boogaloo
I said

You think you’re groove
standing there in your wallpaper shoes
and your socks that match your eyes.

Back off Boogaloo
I said
back off Boogaloo.
Come on
back off Boogaloo.

0bamacare is the problem with healthcare now, but that was 0bama’s idea, too.

RE :”But given all that, have we ever witnessed anything like the unrelenting assault on Barack Obama?

Not at all a Bush fan at all BUT Obama got the endless honeymoon compared to Bush, especially Bush's second term. Even his first term there was Dan Rather and the CBS National Guard memo. Then there was the 9-11 Kerry 'Jersey Girl' democrats screaming at Condi during the 9-11 hearings.

Democrats have no shame.

Zero votes for financial reform in the House. He sure did. Zero votes for the recovery act. He did that too. Zero votes for health care reform....and that was his cuop de gras Judicial and governmental nominees blocked for months by senatorial "holds" grounded on nothing but wanting to obstruct the operation of the government. Now every major vote is met with a filibuster, in numbers we've never seen before, rendering the Senate virtually dysfunctional. To be fair, Zero wasn't the only demonrat who did this but I'll give it to him.

Perfect synopsis of Zero's last year in the senate.

"...Senior senators embarrass themselves by endorsing the big lie of "death panels"
[actually: this was the truth. A different title, of course - but functionally speaking they are "death panels"]
in the health care bill. Republicans openly decided that they would obstruct virtually everything the president tried to do. Zero votes for financial reform in the House. Zero votes for the recovery act. Zero votes for health care reform. Judicial and governmental nominees blocked for months by senatorial "holds" grounded on nothing
[being US Constitution hating, and family hating, political hacks is bit more than "nothing"]
but wanting to obstruct the operation of the government....

Say, when did the anti-Reverend start making commercials for the Republicans?
I wish they were as effective as he tries to make them out to be - but Jesse certainly tries to give them more credit than they deserve.
And of course he ignores the fact that the godless Communist party (AKA, the Democrats) intentionally inflame racial and economic divisions as part and parcel of their political movement...

“Birther nonsense”?

Oh that’s just rich. Prove it’s nonsense.

Let’s see the Birth Certificate he found among his mother’s belongings in 1995, upon her passing.

Jackson clearly fails to see the bitter irony of this ridiculous whine when for eight straight years, the MSM and leftist operatives like Jackson mercilessly pounded George W. Bush, who, most of the time, was doing something right. Classic dish-it-out-but-can't-take-it liberal crybaby. Boo Hoo, Jesse. Boo Hoo.

You got your socialist messiah and he's failing, big-time. Man up and stop your whining...and trying to 'blame Bush'. It's just pathetic.

The first lady takes “a” vacation??? How about several, and all of them extravagant. Moochelle’s trip to Spain with 40 of her “closest friends” cost more in one day than most Americans make in a year. Jackson is such a liar.

“Staggering numbers think he’s a Muslim”

Well dang sure ain’t a Christian. A duffer, who takes mulligans, due a nasty tendency to pull left and a moslem for sure.

Lest he spend time with the Boyscouts, hold the National Day of Prayer and actually make time for church.

I guarantee you his total sympathies are with the moslems.

And look up the correct historical way to spell moslem.

muslim is a political name.

Hey, Jesse, STFU. Obama shook down BP for $20,000,000,000. I guess that sort of puts you in the bush leagues.

Senior senators embarrass themselves by endorsing the big lie of "death panels" in the health care bill. Really? Try this one on for size: Provenge, a vaccine to treat the recurrence of prostate cancer, has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)... Medicare usually covers the cost of FDA-approved anti-cancer therapies. However, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is still reviewing whether it will cover Provenge, and at what rate.

The CMS statute states that Medicare must cover therapies that are reasonable and necessary, while the FDA is instructed to approve drugs that are safe and effective. Because of the conflicting Federal coverage and approval requirements, there are some non-FDA approved drugs (called off-label drugs) that are paid for by CMS. However, with respect to Provenge, it appears that CMS is arguing that while the treatment is safe and effective, it may not be reasonable and necessary. For the first time, an FDA approved anti-cancer therapy may not be covered by Medicare.

They are the minority party and can pass whatever they want with only the votes of their party and have pretty much gotten their way.
