Obama apparently wants his opposition to shut up and get out of his way. At a Democratic rally for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds on Thursday, August 06, 2009, President Obama let his true feelings, regarding his opposition, out of the bag.
President Obama told the approximate 1800 people in attendance, “I expect to be held responsible for… these issues… because, I’m the President. But… But… But, I don’t want the folks who created the mess… I don’t want the folks who created the mess doing a lot of talkin’. I want them to just get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleanin’ up after ‘em but don’t do a lot of talkin’” [transcribed verbatim]
The President reiterated that he inherited a $1.3 trillion deficit, claiming that without his policies, going forward, we would have had an even higher deficit. Of course, he made an exception for his stimulus bill, proclaiming that we had to have the stimulus to jumpstart the economy.
Obama went on to analogize that, you cannot charge up the credit card, going on shopping sprees that did not grow the economy, then hand over the bill and say, why haven’t you paid it off yet.
“I got that bill from you!” Obama exclaimed.
Someone really should point out to the President, that he did not actually inherit the deficit, he actually assisted in creating it. He was a U.S. Senator, and as such, he did vote for the Bush stimulus bill, the banking bailout, and the wasteful auto bailout. You cannot inherit a “mess” if you are, at least in part, responsible for creating it. So, where did that bill come from?
Although the President was speaking primarily about the economy at the time, considering his actions and attitude over the last seven months, since he took office, it is easy to see that he finally voiced the overriding opinion of most of the Democratic Party leadership, in regards to any who oppose them.
We are realizing the truth of that as the members of Congress have returned home to their constituencies and are being met with staunch resistance to the idea of nationalizing Health Care. The Democrats must have thought they had everyone fooled by the constant use of the word ‘reform’.
We are witnessing staunch rejection of the Nationalized Health Care proposal, citizens are coming out of the woodworks to oppose it. The President and his supporting staff of congressional thieves are reacting by trying to discredit any who stand in opposition, even attempting scare tactics to quiet us.
When Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi witnessed raucous protests against President Bush, some of which referred to the President as another Adolf Hitler, and other such intelligent remarks, Speaker Pelosi was eager to proclaim that she was ”a fan of disruptors. Although she has made a conscious effort to back away from her comments, Speaker Pelosi went so far as to claim that protesters of the proposed Nationalized Health Care are Un-American, intimating they are swastika-wearing Nazis. Several Democrats have echoed the disparagement espoused by Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano when she termed the opposition as right-wing terrorists.
However, I noticed, while watching the coverage of the current public dissent, the protesting conservatives seemed relatively civil, nothing like the rowdy affairs in which I have watched Liberal Democrats involved. I witnessed no pushing, no shoving. In fact, I do not believe I even seen anyone rushing a stage of platform.
Not until, of course, the Liberal left counter-protesters began showing up after Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid called the protests “phony”, and told supporters to “punch back twice as hard”. Senator Reid might as well have handed the left wing extremists a license to attack.
How ironic, when Liberal Democrats participate in public protests, burning flags, blocking streets, disrupting businesses, and creating havoc, they are asserting their first amendment rights. When Conservative Republicans dissent against, what we believe to be irresponsible legislation, in a reportedly loud, but peaceful demonstrations, they are attacked by the same people that protect the Liberals. As much as the Democrats deny it, there is a double standard applied here.
When the Republicans held the majority, Democrats kicked and screamed for compromise. Where is the compromise now that Democrats hold the majority? The word has seemingly dropped from their vocabulary.
Take notice America, the Liberal Democratic mind-set is on full display. When not the majority, Democrats claimed without merit, they were being steam-rolled, ignored, relegated to the sidelines, and repetitiously demanded compromise. Now that they have the power of the majority, Democrats are doing exactly what they falsely claimed their opposition did.
The proof is in the actions of Speaker of the House Pelosi, who in a move to stifle the Republicans, in January imposed new house rules that require any legislation to cut taxes, must include offsetting measures to maintain tax revenues, dollar for dollar.
The Democrats have accused Republicans of obstructionism. Obstructionism? OK! Fine! You’re right! We are obstructionists! We are patriotically, intentionally obstructing the liberal left from blatant attempts to negate more of our personal liberty and freedom by excessive empowerment of the Federal Government. We are expressing whole-hearted dissent against being led further down the path to Socialism.
However, might I remind you, the Republicans are the minority, Democrats can pass any legislation they want, yet still the battle cry goes out that we need to compromise. The Democrats really do not want compromise, they want Republicans to roll over and accept the legislation with open arms, and vote like Democrats.
What Democrats really want is a scapegoat to take the heat for President Obama’s extremist agenda. They want someone at whom they can point their fingers. They need someone to blame for their failed ideology and policies. Yes, they understand, full and well, the consequences and repercussions of passing Obama’s agenda.
Under President Obama, the Federal Government has imposed it’s power on the financial/banking industry, they continue to manipulate the housing market, and they have forced a partnership with the auto industry. Now they are attempting a full court press by trying to force us into nationalized health care, and pushing to regulate the operations of private corporations’, and the ability of corporations to set executive salary structures.
Why should we give them the final say in repairing the “messes” that they created to begin with? I allude to the skyrocketing deficit, the inability to balance the budget, out of control spending, the impending failures of Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare, and a consistent desire to grab more, and more power for the Government at the cost of individual liberty and freedom.
Too many of the same people that drove us to where we are, with blind personal ambition, are now attempting to position themselves as our saviors. They are setting themselves up to continue the usurpation of our rights. Seems kind of like Lucifer giving us directions at a fork in the road to the after-life.
Democrats are holding true to form in asserting that only Republicans are to be held accountable for their actions. Democrats want to be judged by their intentions, even if their actions are that of a socialistic nature. Where is it again, that good intentions pave a path to?
Meanwhile, Scary Barry, his Congressional Cronies, and the Miscreant Media sycophants continue to defy reality and try to convince us that the public dissention and protests are being drummed up by special interests. Obama is even trying to redirect the public outpouring of dissent toward the big, bad, evil insurance companies.
Go figure. I imagine telling the opposition to shut up falls under the category of, “Hope and Change”.
