President Obama just delivered his post-victory shutdown remarks. He included a remarkable little slam on those of us who exercise the First Amendment in the course of earning a living.

“But all my friends in Congress, understand that how business is done in this town has to change because we’ve all got a lot of work to do on behalf of the American people and that includes the hard work of regaining their trust,” Obama lectured. “And our system of self-government doesn’t function without it. And now that the government is reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists and the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict and focus what the majority of Americans sent us here to do and that’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul. That’s why we’re here. That should be our focus.”

Emphasis added to highlight the hypocrisy. Prior to his political career, Barack Obama was a community organizer. Community organizers are professional activists who profit from conflict.

Obama’s snide slam on bloggers didn’t play well even with some of his base in the media.

 

 

 

I’m sure they won’t hold it against him, though.

Sometimes he even says the country now must turn its attention to some issues he has ignored for five years saying they are priority issues. Here is a bold, brazen example following the boldface above:

"...focus what the majority of Americans sent us here to do and that’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul."

I recall his jobs counsel, or whatever he called it, that met once a year for one year. What a load this man is. No fiction writer would invent such a character. It would put too big a load on suspension of disbelief.

Jun 21, 2013 With the NSA intercepting as many as 20 trillion communications belonging to Americans, they've created what can best be described as a backup server for the nation's entire store of communications. And according to one of the latest Snowden leaks, the NSA's database may contain evidence of crimes committed by Americans that have nothing to do with national security. So who should have access to this information and how should it be used? Political Commentator Sam Sacks reports.

Hussain in every speech in which he demonizes opponents, manages to illustrate projection -- whatever he himself has done, he accuses others of doing. I have taken to using the Mute button. I can't stand the sound of his voice.

Another Obama '08 campaign promise, to go through the federal budget "line by line" and cut out wasteful spending & balance the federal budget.

This president has singlehandedly run up more total debt than ALL PRESIDENTS COMBINED through Bill Clinton.

Even George W. Bush's egregious spending during 8 years totals about half of what the Obama administration has incurred in 5.

America is so successful now with a feeble economy, something like 30 million more people on food stamps and the disability rolls rapidly turning into a pure scam.

Go ahead, give your all your personal information to Obamacare "navigators", a few of whom have already been outted as doing fraud for a living.

Regaining trust would include prosecuting IRS employees who targeted his political opponents, no? Or actually following the law instead of unilaterally creating it or ignoring it, no?

What a blow hard.

Obama has hired as many lobbyists into his Administration as anyone has. When I pointed this out to a couple of leftists, noting that Obama had promised not to hire ANY lobbyists into his Administration, they said that it was O.K. because they weren't corporate lobbyists, they were lobbyists for leftist organizations. It's O.K. to break your promised as long as the right kind of people are involved.

There's always spin from supporters as Barack regularly breaks the rules he self-righteously set up in some previous speech.

You know, like the surveillance that was criminal under Bush/the Patriot Act, now ramped up by the NSA to unreal proportions, is now ok. The war strategies like going into Libya w/o congressional approval, using drones to off terrorists (and their nearby families in the vicinity) would have been screamed about as sacrilege under the previous president.

Now, silence.

Obama's massive speechifying in '06 and '08 about the horrors of raising the debt ceiling don't mean anything to his supporters today, who just accept in knee jerk fashion their gooroo's insistence that the United States must continue spending itself into oblivion.

Stupid people, to a man. Or a woman.

And read the link to the other tatler story about his speech where he said this (with a straight face) : And when we disagree, we don’t have to suggest that the other side doesn’t love this country or believe in free enterprise or the other rhetoric that seems to get worse every single year. If we disagree on something we can move on and focus on the things we agree on".

He really is a small terrible petty man...
