Yes, Barack Obama really said this.

“The biggest barrier and impediment we have right now is the Congress, and in particular the House of Representatives, that is not focused on getting the job done for the American people and is a lot more focused on trying to position themselves for the next election,” Obama told about 60 wealthy supporters at a fundraising dinner outside of Seattle.

Obama’s comments came during an event for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee inside the sprawling contemporary Medina home of former Microsoft executive Jon Shirley. Tickets cost up to $16,200 per person or $32,400 per couple, with money going toward helping Democrats reclaim the House majority in 2014.

Obama described himself “not a particularly ideological person,” saying he is passionate about his values but is practical about how to achieve them. He attacked House Republicans for being what he considered overly partisan.

He then went on to say that the equally non-ideological Nancy Pelosi should be returned as speaker of the House. Meanwhile he’s bitterly clinging to his sharply ideological signature failure despite the fact that it has never enjoyed majority support and is obviously causing chaos all over the country, among other sharply ideological policies, procedures and nominees.

Exit question: Does Obama really believe this about himself, or is it yet another lie from the lightworker?

Flashback: Obama was a back-bencher in the US Senate, yet he still managed to distinguish himself as its most leftwing member.

This is one of the few cases in which Obama probably isn’t lying. I think he actually believes it. He doesn’t see raising taxes on some Americans, even if it hurts the economy, but because of “fairness,” as an ideological choice. It’s just what comes naturally to him. It’s who he is.

Right. And his grandfather wasn't ideological, his father wasn't ideological, Frank Marshall Davis wasn't ideological, Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger were not ideological, Bill Ayers isn't ideological, Don Warden isn't ideological, The New Party isn't ideological, the Midwest Academy isn't ideological, the radical professors specifically sought out were not ideological.

The WHOLE of his life...has not been a straight bee line into the depths of radical leftist ideology.

And, the check is in the mail.

Give me a freakin' break.

If Obama really understood himself, he'd probably commit suicide.

Of course he believes he's non-ideological. Obama has a personality disorder -- he's a narcissist. Narcissists lack insight -- they cannot see themselves as others perceive them. At the same time that Obama views himself (falsely) as "non-ideological", he will project onto others the claim of their being overly "ideological." (Part of his illness).

Red-lines.... Red-lines.... No such thing as a Red line for the ideological Obama.... If Syria used chemical weapons it would be a 'red-line'. If Iran develops nuclear weapons it would be a 'red-line'.... But the red-lines are just imaginary, and Obama has absolutely no intention of backing up his statements.

I'm not really a blog commenter. Some people think I post comments on blogs sometimes, but I really don't. Other people do, of course, but not me.

Lying works for him. Why would he stop? No one calls him on it. The one congressman who indirectly called him out on it was nearly censored by his own party. The media will never call him a liar. The GOP won't. Why stop? He's probably a psychotic liar anyway, so he can't stop. Anyway, he got his two terms and his untold damage. Lying pays off -- big time.

I could not figure out why that congressman's outburst caused such a brouhaha. It was probably the most truthful thing said that night.

Propaganda in its purest form. It's all in the language. Values are good. Ideologies are bad. Passionate is good. Partisan is bad. Obama is good. House Republicans are bad.

He's not ideological. It's just that every policy he advocates is to the far left of the kook left fringe.
