Obama Concedes: Hasn’t Unified US

From those well-known news mavens at People Magazine, via the Associated Press:

Obama concedes he hasn’t brought country together

January 13, 2010

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says he has not succeeded in bringing the country together, acknowledging an atmosphere of divisiveness that has washed away the lofty national feeling surrounding his inauguration a year ago.

"That’s what’s been lost this year … that whole sense of changing how Washington works," Obama said in an interview with People magazine.

The president said his second-year agenda will be refocused on uniting the country around common values, "whether we’re Democrats or Republicans."

Well, a good way for Mr. Obama to start this “second-year agenda” would be to end his relentless push for ‘healthcare reform’ – which, in case he hasn’t noticed, has no support from anyone outside of the Democrat Party.

"We all want work that’s satisfying, pays the bills and gives children a better future and security," Obama said in the interview, which the magazine conducted with the president and his wife, Michelle Obama, at the White House last Friday.

If Mr. Obama really feels this way why has he done so many things that have hurt our economy and our national security?

And why is he pushing more initiatives, like ‘Cap And Trade’ that will do even more damage than he has already done?

The president’s comments came as Republican leaders rallied against the core items of his agenda, from his economic stimulus plan to health care. The mood of the country has remained in a sustained slump, too, as double-digit unemployment followed a campaign built upon "hope" and "change."

Obama said people have "every right to feel deflated, because the economy was far worse than any of us expected."

Ah, more of Mr. Obama’s famous – ‘the buck stops here’ taking of responsibility.

But he insisted that his government’s economic steps in 2009 are paying off and that people should have confidence in this new year.

“Prosperity is just around the corner.”

A line our leaders fed us from 1929 until about 1942.

    If only Reagan hadn’t made the muslims so mad as to want to fly airplanes into buildings….

    If only Bush 1 hadn’t gone in there and made the muslims angry when he kicked them out of Kuwait

    If only Bush 2 hadn’t gone in there and made the muslims mad after 9/11 by protecting the people of the U.S.

    If only Bush hadn’t allowed all those catastrophic loans to be given out to deadbeats

    If only…..

    Sure would’a made the magic negro’s job a whole lot easier and so much more fun and delightful. And that’s what he’s really angry about. After TWO vacations and trillions of dollars spent….

    I’m just sayin’ Didn’t anybody properly prepare for the messiah’s arrival? How rude.

    Sooooo….more ‘hope’? This is what I’m to take from this? Hope? That’s a bit “2008”, no? Hope and change, change and hope. Bleh.

    We should unite behind his fantasies lies.

    Obama “That’s what’s been lost this year … that whole sense of changing how Washington works,”

    The heck he hasn’t changed the entire way Washington works. It’s the gestapo.

    president said his second-year agenda will be refocused on uniting the country around common values, “whether we’re Democrats or Republicans.”

    The dictactor admits one ruled government.

    Someone mentioned to me the new census forms will have more specific racial profiling to include a block for “negro”. Not all black people are from Africa. Lot’s of Hispanic but not white. She asked her class how many were “native Americans” and they all held up their hands, arguing they were born in the U.S. For those that insisted she told them to find out what tribe they were in, as a teacher she had to make sure they were accounted for.

    I dunno know – seems everybody to the right of Mao is pretty unified – against Obama, Reid & Pelosi that is.

    “Obama concedes he hasn’t brought country together”

    Like he was ever really going to do this. As I’ve said before, if you take everything he says and think 180 you know what he will do.

  10. Liberals Demise

    No big surprise here.
    DingleBarry knows damn well he has drove a bigger wedge between the haves and the have nots; white against black; black against black and our economy in to the shiiter.

    Smug fatherless mothers son!!

  11. U NO HOO

    He could start by putting C-SPAN cameras wherever he goes.

    And read the Constitution to us in fireside chats.

    And then live the Constitution.

    Obama, are you reading this?

    If not, you should be.

  12. Take a look at this website back in 2001 before our moronic President was even thinking of becoming one. Notice the signs stating “Republicans & corruption”. How ironic that the present admnistration is worse:

    Does anyone in their right mind even believe this idiot?

    • 2old2givea

      HA! That’s a trick question. If you’re in your right mind, you can’t possibly believe him. If you believe him you can’t be in your right mind… although many in their LEFT mind don’t believe this idiot. (Getting them to admit it is a different matter.)

  14. 2old2givea

    Exactly what did he have in mind for bringing us together? Communes? Rice paddies?

    Obama Concedes: Hasn’t Unified The US

    As if he gave a damn!

    Right behind his fashionable velvet baritone is a steel-fisted Stalinist grinning about how you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

    There are far too many decent Americans that are inclined to give this SOB the benefit of the doubt.

    But to give somebody the benefit of a doubt, there has to be at least grounds for some doubt.

    Red Hussein has been unambiguous about his goals and intentions.

    Unite America?!?!?

    This is the same dude who can’t acknowledge his white heritage.

    The first black president (don’t tell Bill) .. righhhht.
    The first African-American president .. righhhhht.

    Unite? Cloward-Piven doesn’t call for unity. It calls for chaos. Constant chaos. Regular chaos. Unity’s not on the menu.

  17. Rusty Shackleford

    Well, one thing’s for certain. This president is not good at the “aw-shucks” routine. Ya need Bill-Jeff for that.
