Rep. Waters urges Obama to drop nice-guy act and fight Republicans, Tea Party

Rep. Waters urges Obama to drop nice-guy act and fight Republicans, Tea Party By Mike Lillis - 09/22/11 02:46 PM ET

It’s time for President Obama to quit watching sports and drinking beer with his political opponents in the hope it will lead to a bipartisan agreement, Rep. Maxine Waters said Thursday.

The outspoken California Democrat needs to fight harder against the GOP and Tea Party and for Democratic policy priorities, outspoken Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Thursday.

“He's been very nice about it,” Waters said of Obama’s budget negotiations with Republicans.

“He's been on the other side of the aisle talking with people. He's invited them up to the White House to have beer. He's invited them to come and watch the Super Bowl games.

“He's done all of that, and when they eat his food and drink his beer and leave, then they go and try to kill him [on Capitol Hill],” she told an audience gathered for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual legislative conference in Washington.

“You've gotta fight – you will not win this battle without fighting,” she added.

Obama already has taken a tougher partisan tone in speeches this month, and he proposed large tax hikes on the wealthy this week to cheers from liberals.

But Waters said she and other liberal Democrats still want to see the president do more and believe that by fighting the GOP he can be successful. She also suggested questions remain about whether Obama will keep fighting for liberal priorities when the going gets tough.

“We love the president. We want him to be successful,” Waters said. “But does he feel our pain? Does he understand what's going on out here?”

Waters, a prominent member of the CBC, said she's encouraged by Obama's new proposal to create jobs and rein in deficit spending. But she also warned that the group will be watching closely as the negotiations evolve.

“We're pleased that the president has a jobs proposal. Now we have to trace it and to track it. … because strange things happen in the legislative process. We don't want this to end up being just a tax-cut deal only,” she said.

“I love the president,” she added, “but I will ask the president where's the money.”

Waters suggested the black community needs to become more involved if it wants Washington lawmakers to notice, for instance, that the recession hit minority communities much harder than it did white populations.

“We have got to show up. The Tea Party shows up. The Tea Party intimidates everybody,” she said. “We have to show people that we have no fear. Don't mistake the silence for intimidation.”

Waters generated headlines last month when she said the Tea Party “can go straight to hell.”

On Thursday, she wasn't apologizing.

“Yes, I was displayed in national media telling them where to go,” she said. “And I mean that.”

Good luck with that Maxine...Barry knows how to make speeches and read from TOTUS but that's about it.

If she wants Zero to get tough she should write him a new speech for his teleprompter. He can only say what is written for him. And don’t use any big words or he will mispronounce them and look even more idiotic.

Successful AT WHAT?

Someone ASK HIM FOR CHRISSAKES~!!

He's only been in office almost 3 years and no one has asked him that question- What does he want to "fundamentally change" the USA into?

[Hint: It's socialism]

Racists coming out of the wood work. This is horrible for America, and is the worst thing to happen to race relations in a long time. I’ve seen plenty of white on black racism in my lifetime, but have been so amazed and happy about how far we’ve come as a society - until now. Just because the arrow is pointing in a different direction doesn’t make the racism any less disgusting and harmful.

In the cold light of day, Waters’ words are clearly inciting violence and rioting, and are racially hateful.

This is criminal behaviour, and she should be charged in a court of law and put on trial for it.

Examiner.com 8/3/10 - Radical Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is facing ethics charges after she improperly used her influence to get special favors from regulators, and costly taxpayer bailouts, for a mismanaged bank whose executives gave her money and enriched her husband - and then lied about it.

Who says race baiting doesn't pay? Maxine is still in Washington, running her mouth.

You won’t like it when REAL whites (as opposed to the cowardly, self-hating “progressives” you’ve been pushing around for decades), FINALLY fight back against your arrogant, thieving racism, Waters.

Not one bit.

Maybe in between her little rants and her continual butchering of the English language, Maxine could find the time to walk over to the House hopper and drop in Barry's little bill so we can PASS THIS BILL now? It still has yet to be introduced in the House, and it's not on the Senate calendar, even though Reid introduced it.

That was my question, too. Obama has never been “nice” about the GOP in his entire life. He’s a Marxist rabble-rouser, and it shows in every word he says.

Representative Waters is perhaps the stupidest person ever in the US Congress. Surely she's in the stupidest 1% of those ever in the House. Did she even notice the 2010 elections and the fact that the Democrats lost the House of Representatives and this changes everything? I seen stupid people before, but this woman is in a special class.

Third paragraph makes no sense.

If this is such a big deal for Waters , she should request some face time with nobama and “splain” this to him.

Personally, it appears to me nobama is adverse to getting into the gutter. Fine.

During the 2008 campaign, a big deal was made about him avoiding the appearance of being “the angry black man”.
If there was any hint of this, he wouldn’t have been elected.

Just imagine how uncivil Maxine will be next summer when it becomes undeniably obvious that Obozo has screwed the pooch and has no prayer of being reelected.

She is one of the Dhimmies who can and will call for (and get) a literal scorched earth policy out of her constituents and her nationwide followers.
