If this video doesn’t demonstrate Obama’s phoniness on the issue of “uniting” people I don’t know what does. It was taken from a stump speech he gave for Creigh Deeds (Democrat candidate for Governor in VA) on Thursday. Greg Hengler does an excellent job of piecing together the President’s blantant dueling positions on the issue of “bringing people together” (via HA):
OBAMA #1: “It starts off with the basic idea that we’re all in this together. Mark Warner came in at a time when the fashionable politics was the nasty kind of politics, the slash-and-burn politics, the arguing and arguing without everything — ever getting anything done kind of politics. And Mark Warner said, you know what, we can try something different. What we’re going to do is we’re going to be pragmatic instead of ideological. We are going to try to bring people together rather than push them apart. We are going to make sure that we listen to other people’s ideas.”
OBAMA #1: “But I don’t want the folks who created the mess — I don’t want the folks who created the mess do a lot of talking. I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.”
If that’s the case, then about 85% of Congress – including Chris Dodd and Barney Frank – should get the hell out of the way, and so should Obama’s sorry behind. In fact, that’s a damned good idea, Mr. President. Let the demagogues who helped create this mess take a back seat while those who didn’t work to clean it up. Perfect!
Oh – and it’s too bad none of his devotees, including those in the MSM, will never have the guts to ask him how essentially telling his opponents to shut up, as well as sicking union thugs on older Americans, seniors, and veterans fits in with the whole “working together” thing.
I could go on and on about how so many of us warned people last year of this man’s duplicity on the issue of “bipartisanship” but then I’d become enraged even more – something I’m trying to avoid as we head into the weekend.
