“Fiesty” Obama Calls GOP “Crazies”, Attacks Koch Brothers

Is it any wonder I call Obama “not my president”? Has there ever been a US president who has attacked his political opponents in such a personal and degrading manner? Has Obama ever considered that people find no reason to work with him when he attacks them in such a manner? Of course, it is interesting that he refuses to attack enemies, such as Iran and its leaders, in such a manner

(AP) President Barack Obama is putting people on notice: He’s back from vacation feeling “refreshed, renewed, recharged” — and “a little feisty.”

He immediately showed his feisty side.

At a Democratic fundraiser Monday night in Nevada, Obama declared himself ready for the challenges he faces this fall in dealing with a Republican Congress that disagrees with him on the budget, energy policy, education and much more.

Obama said that as he’d ridden to the fundraiser with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, they’d done some reminiscing and spent some time “figuring out how we are going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems.”

He spent quite a bit of time attacking the GOP, especially the duly elected majority in Congress. Great way to entice them to work with Obama, wouldn’t you say?

But Obama spoke at length about his differences with the GOP Congress. And he lamented that “too often, our political debates are not about what’s best for the country but what’s best for the next election.”

Self-awareness fail: he was at a Democratic fundraiser. Neither Obama nor Reid are running for re-election, yet, they seem to be thinking about what’s best for the next election, rather than what’s best for the country.

He also attacked, yet again, the Koch Brothers, private citizens both

(Fox News) President Obama accused critics of his energy policies of trying to restrict consumers from accessing solar power, wind power and other alternative energy sources at a green energy conference in Las Vegas Monday night.

The president specifically singled out billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, who are major donors to Republican political candidates. He accused them, along with “big fossil fuel interests” and “conservative think tanks”, of ideological inconsistency, saying that they champion free market solutions except when the free market boosts renewable energy.

“It’s one thing if you’re consistent in being free market,” Obama said. “It’s another thing when you’re free market until it’s solar that’s working and people want to buy and suddenly you’re not for it anymore. That’s a problem.”

I wonder if Obama will attack George Soros, one of the main patrons of the Democratic Party, who just bought quite a bit of stock in several coal companies. As for free market, solar and wind would not survive without massive subsidies and loans and grants and such from Government.

By the way, this fundraiser was also about “clean energy” and “climate change”, yet he fired up fossil fueled Air Force 1 to fly to Las Vegas, along with the typical 18 fossil fueled vehicles motorcade.

    The President has no intention of working with Congress, because he knows that he can’t; this is all just politics as usual, trying to score political points and not actually get anything done.

    The problem for the Democrats is that while they might win the presidential election, and possibly retake the Senate majority, there is no realistic chance at all that they can take control of the House of Representatives before the 2022 elections, following reapportionment, and even then their chances are slim. Democratic votes are packed too densely in too few districts, normally heavily urban districts, because Democratic votes are packed too densely in the black population. The Democrats would have to carry the votes of white Americans, something they are very unlikely to do with their current policies and proposals, to recapture the majority in the House.

    Ah yes, crazies. This from the same person who said, in 2011…

    “At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do,” he said, “it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

    Obama is a very small man.

    Let’s all just admit that Obama is not one of us – he has a funny name, was born in Kenya, is gay, is on drugs, forged a birth certificate, pushes abortions, is a narcissist, an anti-colonialist, a Muslim, hates white people, is lazy, married a Black woman, is dumb, illiterate, has nappy hair, is a Chicago style gangster, hates the Constitution, is a tyrant AND a weakling, is a dictator AND a pussy, was named after Saddam, his mother had sex with Black men, is divisive not inclusive, hates America, is a Fascist/Communist/Socialist/Marxist, mom’s jeans and bike helmet wearing, cheating, lying fag. Face it, a white hating, gay Kenyan doesn’t “get” America.

    Conservatives and Republicans have been eager to work with him from the outset, trying to find ways to assure health insurance for all Americans, to stop Iran from getting nukes, to help the working classes, to cut the influence of corporate greed in politics… and all Obama does is call them names. “Where’s your birth certificate, Hussein?”

    Did you see that the Repubs stopped the Healthcare and Education bill for veterans? What was Obama thinking? We can’t afford to take care of veterans AND cut taxes for the wealthy and corporations!

    But yes, the Republican Party went crazy. They are incapable of governance or any adult actions for that matter. The Republican Party serve the wealthy and manage their white base for votes.

    Obama has become the President Nixon wanted to be.

  5. Hank_M says:

    You can admit that about Obama, Jeffrey but you’re on your own.

    But tell me, what was the “Healthcare and Education bill for veterans” you’re talking about.

  6. […] thing, but for Obama it just means he’s back nastier than ever. Or as he called it “feisty.” The man who won’t say “boo” to tyrants and dictators has no problem going […]
