President Obama asks GOP to find common ground
Associated Press ^ | Oct. 30, 2010 | DARLENE SUPERVILLE

Posted on 10/30/2010 10:35:37 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Whatever the outcome of Tuesday's election, it's time to put aside partisanship, President Barack Obama is telling Democrats and Republicans.

Yet his appeal for unity includes a jab at GOP leaders in the House and Senate for comments that the president said were troubling.

It is his enemies (his word) who must compromise, not him.

He’s looking for common ground?

Sorry, I don’t think I have ANYTHING in common with our current President.

Just words ~ he has no idea what the mean. None of his friends are Republicans after all.

You know, he's going to hate the American people even more for making him associate with Republicans. I'd make sure he doesn't get involved in any ICBM targeting sessions.

Zer0 has already stated what the common ground is:

Obama to GOP: 'They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.'

I’d think that “get rid of Barack Obama” would be a workable candidate for common ground on both sides of the aisle, no?

Don’t forget that the RAT definition of “bipartisanship” is that Republicans do what the RATS want.

Barky’s view of bipartisanship is simple:...”I don't care what you think or want because I won and I'm the president, next.” We'll see how he reacts to being told ‘NO’ for the first time in his life.

What happened to his defiant, arrogant - “We Won”

Now as a loser he seeks ‘common ground’.

FUBO! You and your lefty minions in Congress ran roughshod over the Republican minority, excluding them from virtually all decision making, and poking them in the chest saying “I won,” and unilaterally ramming through horrendous bills and measures that harmed the country; and now, when it is obvious you and your camp-follower miscreants are set to receive a thorough ass-whooping on November 2, you seek compromise and bipartisanship and cooperation? FUBO!

Common ground: Do what we tell you to do.

Bipartisanship: Doing what liberals want.

Understanding: Throwing away all morals in favor of liberalism.

Obama wants the GOP to find common ground, express bipartisanship, and expand understanding.

Problem is, he'll likely get it.

It’s nice that he will allow the GOP to sit in the back of the bus. GOP should thumb their nose at him. Even if the GOP did decide to work with him, he would take all the credit and use it for 2012.

Put partisanship aside, eh? Does he really think everyone’s forgotten just how ObamaCare got passed? And if they have, does he really think the lame duck session won’t remind them?

We are “enemies.” You said so yourself just last week, BO. Don’t come sniveling and whining a few days later saying we need to find “common ground.”

There can be no common ground with the sworn enemies of freedom and liberty. No quarter. Burn and salt their fields. Destroy them!

President Obama asks GOP to find common ground

I don't remember him asking for common ground with the GOP when he was writing the Insurance bill. In fact, as I recall, Democrats rejected with arrogant ridicule each and every suggestion that the GOP offered.

I do not like this Uncle Sam,

I do not like his health care scam.

I do not like these dirty crooks,

or how they lie and cook the books.

I do not like when Congress steals,

I do not like their secret deals.

I do not like this speaker, Nan,

I do not like this ‘YES WE CAN.’

I do not like this spending spree,

I’m smart, I know that nothing’s free.

I do not like your smug replies,

when I complain about your lies.

I do not like this kind of hope.

I do not like it, nope, nope, nope!

This shows just how irrational Obama is. What he call progress, most of the country calls a disaster. Why would anyone want to compromise over policies that have been shown to be harmful to the nation? The only solution is to scrap them and replace them with good policies, especially fiscal policies. Any elected official that supports Obama’s failed policies, will not get my support in the future.
