President Obama: A Lot of Reporters Tell Me My Ideas Sound Great
When President Obama goes on television and tells us that the majority of Americans agree with him, we now know where he gets that idea from. The press.
So, now the press is a representation of how the American people feel.
It’s interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of you’ve said before; some of them sound great, but you can’t get those through Congress. Republicans won’t agree with you. And I say, look, the fact is there are Republicans in Congress right now who privately agree with me on a lot of the ideas I’ll be proposing. I know because they’ve said so. But they worry they’ll face swift political retaliation for cooperating with me.
It’s easy to lie and say that a lot of Republicans “privately” agree with you. Why do I say lie? Because he’s lied about practically everything else. Why start believing him now?
It’s easy to say that people privately tell you things because there is no way to prove one way or the other.
Let me give you an example.
Most Democrats that I speak with privately wish that Obama wasn’t president, and that he’s a horse’s ass.
See how easy that was?
Let me break that down for you.
My wife is a Democrat, the only Democrat I generally discuss politics with. Thus, “most Democrats I speak with privately”, i.e., my wife, wishes Obama wasn’t president and thinks he’s a horse’s ass. My statement is 100% truthful, but very misleading.
Obama, on the other hand, doesn’t have a tendency to speak with any Republicans beyond the leadership, and even then it’s hit & miss.
So, what are some of your ideas, Mr. President?
Stepping up NSA surveillance on American citizens?
Taking away our gun rights?
Unilaterally and illegally suspending parts of Obamacare? Oh, wait, he’s already done that.
Turning our children into a bunch of starving, third world uneducated zombies?
How about ordering TSA to illegally search our cars after a valet parks them?
What other ideas are great ideas?
I know! Giving defacto amnesty to all the illegals and their children!
Or how about deciding to not decide whether or not there has been a coup in Egypt in order to keep from defunding our foreign aid to the region? Now, that would show real leadership!
That’s the major problem with this president, and John Kerry before him. He would stick his finger in the air to see which way the wind was blowing before taking a position, or changing a position for that matter. See the gay marriage debate.
The sycophant press is always going to tell him his ideas are great, even when they aren’t (GM bailout anyone?). And by sycophant, I mean fawning parasites.
The President surrounds himself with sycophants, and that is a lot of the problem. He’ll never get a straight answer from yes men and toadies, but then, he doesn’t want the truth.
His narcissistic, sociopathic behavior won’t let him surround himself with anyone other than people who tell him how great he is.
