Obama: GOP tried to "sneak" agenda into budget
cbsnews.com ^ | 4-15-11 | Tucker Reals

Posted on 04/15/2011 8:25:56 AM PDT by jackv

Mr. Obama complains of Republican attempts to attach measures to the budget bill which would have effectively killed parts of his hard-won health care reform program.

"I said, 'You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We'll have that debate. You're not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we're stupid?'" recalled the president of his closed-door negotiations on the bill to fund the federal government until September.

“You think we’re stupid?” Would you prefer “Naive”? Sadly, those two options are the kindest things to which I can attribute your actions.

One of my favorite Barry quotes so far.

What a pig.

He belongs to the pig club of which there are many members in America today. They are the socialist/communist/green pigs who demand that we change our country whether we like it or not. Obama is just a cheap thug and like all thugs likes to give the orders and throw his weight around ‘cause he is president, that's why! Disgrace doesn't even begin to describe what 1/2 America voted into office. Pay attention next time people - we are not going to get more chances to get the scum out of the oval office!

"We'll have that debate"

I don't think Obama uses that term the way most of us do. What "debate"? We aren't going to have a "Debate". All we have are votes, and the democrats in the senate will vote to keep Obamacare no matter what came out in a "debate".

We already had the debate -- it has been discussed, it has been disseminated, our tax dollars have been spent to advertize for one side of the debate.

And the American People have REJECTED Obamacare. That was the debate. Obama doesn't care who won the debate, he will do what he wants. At some point, we will have to stick to our side, pass budgets without funding, and let the democrats try to ADD the funding back in, or let them shut down the government and explain to the people that government is closed because the democrats want to fund a program the american people hate.

There is no limit to what the Democrats will do to prevent Paul Ryan’s budget from passing. Lying, demagoguing, veiled threats, unexplained disappearance of family pets, unexplained death of family pets, threats, blackmail, extortion, frivolous lawsuits as was done to Sarah Palin, etc.

The Democrats are far past caring about the law, their responsibilities, or decent behavior. Obama could assassinate Paul Ryan (God forbid) on the steps of the Capitol Building in front of 300 news cameras, and congressional Democrats, academia, and the MSM would leap forward as one to defend him and obfuscate the situation.

The Republican leadership must recognize this and stop trying to accommodate our domestic enemies.

“Mr. Obama said he told House Speaker John Boehner and members of his staff that he’d spent a year and a half getting the sweeping health care legislation passed — paying “significant political costs” along the way — and wouldn’t let them undo it in a six-month spending bill.”...

The correct response?......FUBO!

OTOH, whatever happened to the piecemeal destruction of Obamacare that was supposed to happen.

It didn’t. They didn’t go to the mat for it in the negotiations. They left it fully funded, and the bill passed.

You think we're stupid?

Doesn't explain everything, but it does play a major role. Only an idiot would attempt regime change using only air assets. A billion $ for nothing. Yeah, that qualifies as stupid.

Egads, Obama IS stupid, thinking this is bravado:

“I said, ‘You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We’ll have that debate. You’re not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we’re stupid?’”

Dumber still is the GOP, who should have made OBAMACARE DEFUNDING THE CENTERPIECE OF THE SHUTDOWN DEBATE.

Then any ‘compromise’ from that would have extracted a lot more out of Obama than the piddling result we got.

It’s that NOW the Democrats, WHO VOTED IN CONGRESS HEAVILY FOR THE BUDGET, feel they did OK. Which means they did.

No, he’s not even smart enough to be that stupid, he’s dumber. He doesnt even want regime change, so he’s just helping the rebels lose more slowly... would you prefer to bleed to death fast or slow? ...

Only a super-idiot would attempt to start a war without actually having a goal to win something, say like regime change.

You're worried about the wrong thing, Look at the polls Obama is done. Schumer got caught a few weeks ago and now this.
Even Politico has reported they are disgusted with Obama shutting the media out. This Alinsky tactic is desperate and old.

More Hollywood commiecrats have been given their orders to speak out in the last week defending Obama. Demi and her nitwit husband on CNN, Gwyneth Paltrow et al.

No one is buying it but the commiecrats themselves which are the minority even with hollywood and media.

What the concern needs to be is Obama did not have his ACORN/moveon flunkies on the ground offering free laptops to vote for 2 weeks prior to election day. He sold his own party out.

His billion dollar campaign will have all the boots on the ground with the NBP’s as well. If the GOP does not end no VOTER ID for voting. We are doomed Obama will win.

This is all pretty funny coming from this jerk whose minions jammed through most of their unread "legislation" under cover of night and the "hidden funding" of Obamacare that Michelle Bachman has been hollering about.

Michele Bachmann Claims To Expose Billions In 'Hidden' Funding For Health Care Law (VIDEO)

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), one of the most fervent opponents of the health care reform overhaul passed into law last year, released a new informational video Thursday explaining her discovery of what she called an "outrageous" example of "legislative fraud." "This is what we've discovered: When Obamacare was passed...contained in that bill was funding for Obamacare of $105 billion," Bachmann said. "Practically no member of Congress even knew that $105 billion of funding was contained." Bachmann then leveled a harsh charge based on her characterization of the act as an intentionally duplicitous effort by Democratic leaders to pull a $100 billion hustle on unassuming members of Congress......read more....

I don’t think that OBAMA and the democrats are stupid....I honestly believe that they are knowingly and in most cases unknowingly agents of Lucifer himself.

However, America, as a nation, is suffering the consequences of being STUPID en mass.

After all we did elect Obama, whilst few realized at the time that he was a Marxist and a Racist.

I also believe that America is suffering GOD’s Judgement as a result, in part, of electing Obama and a democratic majority.
