Obama is an arrogant prick

President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts.

“There are big things that unify Republicans and Democrats,” the official said. “We shouldn’t let partisan politics derail what are very important things that need to get done.”

That wasn’t Obama’s only jab at Republicans today

While discussing the stimulus package with top lawmakers in the White House’s Roosevelt Room, President Obama shot down a critic with a simple message.

“I won,” he said, according to aides who were briefed on the meeting. “I will trump you on that.”

The response was to the objection by Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Arizona) to the president’s proposal to increase benefits for low-income workers who don’t owe federal income taxes.

Not that Obama was gloating. He was just explaining that he aims to get his way on the stimulus package and all other legislation, sources said, noting his unrivaled one-party control of both congressional chambers.

Republicans, along with Democratic leaders in the House and the Senate, met with Obama to hammer out details on a stimulus package that has reached $825 billion.

“We are experiencing an unprecedented economic crisis that has to be dealt with and dealt with rapidly,” Obama said during the meeting. Republicans say that is too big a burden for a nation already crippled by debt and that it doesn’t do enough to stimulate the economy by cutting taxes.

“You know, I’m concerned about the size of the package. And I’m concerned about some of the spending that’s in there, [about] … how you can spend hundreds of millions on contraceptives,” House GOP Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) later said. “How does that stimulate the economy?”

But White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs countered: “There was a lot of agreement in that room this morning about the notion that we’re facing an economic crisis unlike we’ve seen in quite some time … There was agreement that we must act quickly to stimulate the economy, create jobs, put money back in people’s pockets.”

Gibbs disagreed with those who called the meeting window dressing.

“The president is certainly going to listen to any ideas,” he said. “He will also go to Capitol Hill the beginning of next week to talk to Republican caucuses and solicit their input and their ideas.”

Obama acknowledged that $825 billion was a tough price tag for some conservatives and deficit hawks to swallow.

“I know that it is a heavy lift to do something as substantial as we’re doing right now,” he said. “I recognize there are still some differences around the table and between the administration and members of Congress about particular details on the plan,” he said. “But I think what unifies this group is a recognition that we are experiencing an unprecedented, perhaps, economic crisis that has to be dealt with,” he said.

The president added that legislation governing the use of an additional $350 billion in bailout money for the financial industry must include new measures to ensure accountability.

And he continued his initial round of calls to foreign leaders, dialing up Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Saudi King Abdallah and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Dear Leader Obama, you pick a fight with conservatives, you lose. Note I didn’t say republicans, I said conservatives.

    More like fucking ridiculous.

    Never bring a knife to a gunfight.

    Oh, by the way — if it takes being arrogant to get the job done, than I hope rips off every conservatives’ balls and feeds them to ‘em through a straw.

  2. oh concerned,

    mingling in anti-obama sites because you are scared that you made a mistake with Obama.

  3. Concerned Citizen

    Nope —

    I read them to keep perspective. It also helps me to understand how people that claim to be so damn intellectual can be so damn stupid at the same time.

    Who does he think he is, WARNING republicans to stop listening to ANYONE?

    MESSAGE TO STATES GOVERNORS:

    Obama wants to start a CIVILIAN DEFENSE FORCE “AS WELL FUNDED AS THE US MILITARY” he wants to circumvent the National Guard over which you have pervayance.

    You’d better assert your states rights NOW before he threatens them.

  6. Dillonator

    Obama is a douchebag.

    He wants to close Gitmo because he is against torture and wants to placate the morons who voted him in…..all under the guise that other
    countries may view the US as barbaric and hostile?

    Yet he’s the idiot who voted for partial birth abortions and AGAINST the Born Alive Infant Protection act.
    How ironic.

    He is the absolute worst candidate we could have ever had shoved down our throats. I believe that he is a puppet of the far left (Soros), and he won this election only because of the massive marketing effort put forth for 2 years, aimed mainly at young, uninformed voters. They were sold a bill of goods and they bought it hook, line and sinker. .. how sad

    God help us

    We know exactly why yer hanging around here…all ya gotta do is use yer good eye and you can see the problem instantly.
    It’s against America’s morals to waterboard an islamocommunist war criminal,but it’s perfectly fine to take a living American baby almost out of the mother’s womb and jam some scissors into the back of its neck(and if that doesn’t kill it just stick it in a closet ’til it dies) That is American morals to you? Tell God that on judgment day…The list goes on and on, each example worse than the last, but that’s all right in your world? Seriously?!
    We know you feel bad about what you and your robot friends have done…but we are Christian conservatives with the capacity to forgive human error…just like Jesus forgives, and there is time for you to repent of your evil lusts…your desire to kill the innocent unborn and save the wicked alive…that is reversible and upon repentance Christ Jesus will forgive you.He promised. Now, go, and sin no more.

    Fishleg…do you really now?

    Aren’t you being a bit presumptuous in trying to get inside my head to see what I, as a free thinker, really have on my mind.

    You, no good, Obambi, I, and others all have differentiating opinions on how government should work, and for whom. As I stated to no good in an earlier thread, I’m not a brainwashed sheep set to wander aimlessly to slaughter. I’m against torture, I’m Pro-choice, and I believe in God. From the way that you speak, I’m damned to burn amongst the fires of Hell if I don’t change my ways and repent of my sins this instant.

    Only someone far on the right wing of Conservatism could possibly find any connection between Islamic terrorism and abortion. How many suicide bombers HAVE YOU aborted today?

    Dude — ain’t gonna happen — especially at the request of someone that believes the Globe Magazine qualifies as a authoritative and factual news source.

    You can spout fire and brimstone all you’d like, my neocon opponent — it’s not going to change the fact that Obama won the election, he’s reversing the policies of the former administration for the benefit of the American people, and he’ll end that needless bloodbath in the Middle East called the war in Iraq.

    Go back and sit in your pew, and put your nose in the Good Book – and spend some time looking at Ecclesiastes. There is a time for everything to happen – our time is now, and your time as a Republican, my friend, has come and gone.

    Enjoy the ride.

    Hey, C C

    “Only someone far on the right wing of Conservatism could possibly find any connection between Islamic terrorism and abortion. How many suicide bombers HAVE YOU aborted today”

    Uh, no….

    How dare you state we are comparing Islamic Terrorism to abortion. Waterboarding some thug who’s only goal in life is to be-head, bomb and terrorize innocent people because they do not worship Allah should be no cause for concern for any level headed thinking person. (most liberals excluded)

    But yet you have ABSOLUTELY no concern to murdering and mutilating innocent children? What a tool.

    And no, I am not some right wing extremist, bible toting lunatic or whatever label you think you want to bestow on me. I am a conservative, hard working, tax paying and informed citizen who cares a great deal about this country and her future.

    Maybe you think my “morals” are screwed up, but I believe in the right to protect this country at ANY cost, and protecting ALL INNOCENT life, the unborn included. Killing and torturing terrorists comes with the territory.

    Obama un-doing the Bush policies, without even thinking of the consequences is extremely dangerous. But then again, he has shown in the past thet he has poor judgement skills and zero leadership qualities. Oh yeah, I forgot – he gives a great speech – whatever.

    So there you have it. We are stuck with this idiot for the next 4 years, and you think this is good for America?

    Step away from the mainstream media frenzy and adulation and get a clue – you putz.

  10. Concerned Citizen

    Dillonator –

    How dare I? How dare you, sir.

    How dare you call yourself a citizen of the United States, and yet think that this paragraph -”It’s against America’s morals to waterboard an islamocommunist war criminal,but it’s perfectly fine to take a living American baby almost out of the mother’s womb and jam some scissors into the back of its neck(and if that doesn’t kill it just stick it in a closet ’til it dies) That is American morals to you? ” – is not comparing terrorism to a woman’s right to choose? Are you blind? Where in the hell is your “sense of moral character”, Sir?

    I was for a woman’s right to choose long before the Religious Right began trying to tie Bush’s “War on Terrorism” to abortion rights activism. What in the world do suicide bombers have to do with protests at abortion clinics?

    “And no, I am not some right wing extremist, bible toting lunatic or whatever label you think you want to bestow on me. I am a conservative, hard working, tax paying and informed citizen who cares a great deal about this country and her future.”

    That’s good to know, since I wasn’t trying to pass judgement on who you are as a person, or what your beliefs are. However, you foisting your crap about trying to tie Islamofascism into the abortion issue is nothing but a steaming pile of bullshit, and I’m gonna call it for what I think it is.

    “Obama un-doing the Bush policies, without even thinking of the consequences is extremely dangerous.”

    Did you ever stop to think of the issues that the Bush Administrations got us into, by their implementation, in the first place? Guantanamo Bay is a farce, and sets us up for attack from every terrorist group around the world that thinks they can kill Americans because of the “military first” policies of the previous President. I can go on — Abu Gharaib, FISA, Federal Wiretapping, the Patriot Act, waterboarding, open-bid contracts in Iraq. Please, feel free to stop me once the shit from the previous administration piles up past the tip of your nose.

    “So there you have it. We are stuck with this idiot for the next 4 years, and you think this is good for America?”

    Damn straight. After the last eight years of failed republican / GOP leadership, it’s time for a breath of fresh air in Washington. Your party had it’s chance – Bush is not St. Ronnie. You fucked up the economy, the ability of our military to defend the country in times of war by overburdening, threw the Rule of Law in the trash, and put the Constitution through the frigging shredder.

    How dare I? How dare you and your fucking party.

    Now it’s up to the rest of us to clean up the mess your leadership has left us. Enjoy the next 8 years…putz.

  11. Fishleg Murphy

    “You, no good, Obambi, I, and others all have differentiating opinions on how government should work, and for whom.”

    See,that’s why we have a Constitution that spells out exactly how Government should work.

    Oblahblah wants to destroy it and make Government work the way HE wants it to…and whoever pays for Obummer.

    Can you see now why right thinking people may get concerned and make websites for other right minded people to vent their frustrations and share their ideas?

    Is this sixth grade teaching level easier for you to comprehend?
    Thanks for voting Oshit! and screwing our country, jerk.

    Did your mommy teach you to talk that way?

    You have displayed the intelligence of a 12 year old with your comments, and there is no point in debating with a child.

    Oh, and it’s “Miss” Dillonator to you.

    Buh bye

  14. Concerned Citizen

    Well…isn’t that special.

    By the way, “Miss” Dillonator…the “12 year old intellect” only manifests itself in the presence of like intellects such as yourself.

    You guys lost your election, and thusly, your bid to keep the White House. The sooner that you come to the reality of that situation, the sooner that we can put the country back on track

    Or…you can sit on this blog and complain about losing until the 2010 midterms or 2012 Presidential race comes back around.

    Your choice.

    See Ya.

  15. Fishleg Murphy

    Back on track? Communism is about as far off the American track as you can get.And you can’t see that? Socialism, communism, Marxism…it has NOTHING to do with America and your inability to understand that makes it pointless to respond to you any longer.

    That’s pretty cool.The truth really zings ‘em!

  18. Love how they call us, Racist, Right Winged. lol

    Majority of us are Clinton supporters. Some are McCain. Some are Bush, Some are Palin, Some are Bill Clinton, Some are Ronald Regan fanatics, Some are Dennis Kucinich, some are Ron Paul. We even fight with each other on the names above.

    But we all see the bullshit of Obama from day 1 and of his puppeteers and we are called “Right Wingnut Racist” LOL

    Vote the person, not the party.

    In the new Obama world, you’re a “Racist, Right Winged Nut” for not voting for what THEY consider to be a ‘black’ candidate with absolutely NO experience whatsoever.

    America has a lot of dumb & poor people but that’s the goal to keep power.

    There is a lot of honest politicians that want to create a difference, this crop of Chicago politicians is surely not them. Nor is Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the current Democratic senators and reps.

    48 years, no records released at all and he’s president.

  19. Concerned Citizen

    Neither were the last crop from Tejas.

    Personally, I’m glad he’s back down there. folks from Texas haven’t had someone to cheer about from their state since Ann Richards.

    BTW…if you wanna start in on politicians not wanting a change, I’d start with Boehner and his Boy Wonder Cronyn. It’s from my seat like someone is angling for re-election in the midterms, and their trying to smoke out the constituency.

    Party of the People, my ass. They don’t call it the “Grand Old Party” for nothing — really old people, coming up with really old ideas.

  20. Fishleg Murphy

    Sounds like Ohit!’s new illegal cabinet of retreads from the Clinton cabal.Really old evil people, smokin’ hussein’s pole.
    Only Oblahblah is a true war criminal now that he illegally wiped out innocent Pakistanis without Congress’ approval.

  21. Concerned Citizen

    Only following in Bush’s footsteps, buddy — since apparently your boy couldn’t work out a combined actions / forces agreement with Pakistan.

    You bozos failed to kill Bin Laden — I’m sure Obama won’t miss.

  22. Fishleg Murphy

    Red herring.

  23. no good

    …he’ll distract onto anything, pigs/lipstick, fuckfinger scratching, attacking Rush Limbaugh, even murdering innocent Pakistani sodbusters who happened to be in the wrong place, oh my what a cowboy!!

    while he’s trying to pass the first of his ginormous gut-n-rape bills passed off as economic stimulus, creating a permanent dependent class and ensuring the ruination of America’s freedom security and prosperity

  24. Well, we’re months on now and Concerned A$$hole turns out to be the loser. Obambi’s approval ratings are dropping into the take and his legislative initiative are either failing d/t Democrap opposition or public outrage. The only thing that passed with “bipartisan” support had only 3 senate RINOs voting for it (Collins, Snowe, and Spector). What a hoot!

    Dear Leader turns out to be a hypocrite of the highest order and his slobbering minions do what they do best attack the critics. Saul Alinsky would be proud.

  25. Jeremy

    Obam is the WORST president in modern history. If he were white, he would have already been throw out on his sorry ass. Political correctness keeps him in power. He is the first affirmative action president. He has NEVER created a job in the private section and has NO clue about free enterprise. Obama canNOT stimulate his own wife much less the economy.

    Sad that Beavis Biden and ObamaBUTThead have risen way beyond their level of competence.

  26. mks

    Some conservatives can be…… a little bit hilarious. It would be adorable if it didnt piss me off so much. Some of them think there so good and so morally better than everybody else, and then they show offensive pictures and non-sensical articles to show they’re the best. wonderful.

  27. Ed

    This site is definitive proof that stupidity and ignorance is still very much alive and plentiful among conservatives and republican’s and no I’m not a democrat.

    I’m just a person living on a planet with a bunch of idiots who have nothing better to do than bitch and moan about how bad things are now as if they were any better two years ago. What did we all of a sudden develop alzheimer’s desease?

    It’s one planet people. Look at the big picture. One day you will die and no one will really give a shit about you and your stupid opinions. Instead of just thinking about yourself and what you can get while you are here, you need to worry about how you will be judged by the all mighty creator. Unless your hoping he’s a republican.

  28. Ignore the idiot

    “Concerned Citizen” Is obviously nothing of the kind. Ignore him/her. She/He is obviously not here to exchange thoughts but rather just to spew the cool aide all over your otherwise fine page. Ignore him/her and he/she/it will find somewhere else to spread hate and loathing and any other form of disrespect a self respecting left wing libtard can copy from the media circus.

    seems to me that the concerned citizen should just go be a citizen of venezuella,or cuba since that is what they are trying to turn this country into,and should take ed and a few other traitors with him.
    leave America alone,you flag hating assholes. traitors to their own people. concerned citizen? i am ashamed that this asshole is even allowed to be in the greatest country on earth.

    Hey CC, you poor blind, misinformed, ignorant soul of a so called human being. Womens right to choose? Can you tell me when life begins? *Listens patiently* Oh you can’t..well then i say it’s not just the womens rights, it’s the babies rights and the man who had a helping hand in creating it rights. Or do you not consider equal rights for all?

    Your arguments are lame at best and severely uneducated at worst.
