W.H.: Obama is 'president of all the people,' not the 47 percent
By BYRON TAU | 9/18/12 11:45 AM EDT
Reacting to a video of Mitt Romney calling 47 percent of Americans dependent on the government, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the presidency is about representing everyone in the country.
"When you're president of the United States, you're president of all the people," Carney said. "What unites us as Americans is far greater than what divides us."
Carney would not see whether President Obama had seen the video which has dominated the news cycle of the last day, but did say that Obama disagrees with the fundamental premise of Romney's statement.
"Setting aside what Gov. Romney thinks, I can tell you that the president certainly doesn't think that men and women on social security are irresponsible or victims. That students are responsible are victims. He certainly doesn't think that middle class families are paying too little in taxes," Carney said.
Carney said that Obama's policies and many of the decisions he has made as president were made without consideration for rewarding political constituencies.
"He didn't ask whether auto workers were supporters. He didn't ask whether auto executives were supporters. He did what was right," Carney said.
Carney also brushed aside comparisons to a similar incident where Obama said that rural voters get "bitter" and "cling" to guns and religion.

“When you’re president of the United States, you’re president of all the people,” Carney said. “What unites us as Americans is far greater than what divides us.”
Uh huh... that’s why Obama supported OWS, referred to “the (GOP) enemy” when addressing hispanics, supports islam over all others, and continually ranted about those “millionaires and billionaires.” Got it.
White House is full of shit if you simply go by the divide and conquer campaign the AnnointedIdiot has been running with/on. =.=
He is not my President.
W.H.: Obama is ‘president of all the people,’ not the 47 percent,
Even us bitter clingers in all 57 states?
Give him another 4 years, and those numbers will be reversed. A guy on Fox just said the Latino vote is about 70/30 for Obama. He Didn't mention the following:100% black vote. 100%LBGT 100%Free Condom Coalition, 100%Free Healthcare etc., etc. The Democrats might get the Majority pieced together Finally!!
Baghdad Bob has more credibility.....................
“Carney said that Obama’s policies and many of the decisions he has made as president were made without consideration for rewarding political constituencies.”
I literally laughed out loud at that one, except I am not at all amused by that Hitler Youth wanna-be. IMO, not enough bad things can happen to that little, lying twerp!
Yeah he just wants to spread the wealth around by having the 1% pay their “fair share.”
No no, its true...he wants to steal from the 53%’s wallet and give to the 47%.
Den we’ll all be EQUALLY po’ and isn’t that what makes this country great?
FUBO and yer little dog Carney too.
If the man is not delusional, he represents the worst elements of human society. In any event, he should never have been put in a position to compromise our future while bankrupting our present.
He is not my President.
My President would not steal from me to give to the useless,pay for abortions,buy whores their rubbers,screw over my Doctors,make me use ethanol in my gas and shut my coal powered electric plants down.
The list is much longer, but you get the message.
He’s everybody’s president...except for America.
I agree 100%
nobama is no one’s President. Long after my death it will come out that he was a plant...a usurper. Whoever nobama is is unknown. All I know is that he is a pathetic subhuman who should be tried for treason.
Can anyone say . . . Obamacare? I posted days ago, I/some of us live in a different universe and we have witness the fall of America in its glory as we knew it of years past.
In a Pigs eye he is.
Show me where he gives a tinkers damn about white males )maybe union white males)???
And if you are a white male over 50 years old you can really hang it up.
I wish this snake along with his comptemptable party would slither back under the rocks from whence they came.
Yeah Right, can you say the word Solyndra, not to mention bowing to gays Ala marriage or also sucking up for the Hispanic by picking and choosing which laws he will let Holder enforce.
The list goes on but you get the idea.
