Obama Boasts Of ‘Progressive Triumphs’

From The Hill:

Obama boasts of most ‘progressive’ political triumphs in decades

By Sam Youngman – 08/17/10

President Obama told a Hollywood fundraiser Monday night that he and congressional Democrats have passed the most progressive legislation in decades.

"We have been able to deliver the most progressive legislative agenda — one that helps working families — not just in one generation, maybe two, maybe three," Obama said.

Obama was joined by a number of lawmakers and celebrities at an event for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) that raised $1 million.

Obama is hitting the campaign trail hard this week before he goes on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, boasting of his administration’s accomplishments and accusing Republicans of trying to return to the policies of President George W. Bush.

"This is exactly when you want to be president," Obama said. "This is why I ran, because we have the opportunity to shape history for the better."

With polls showing Democrats in serious trouble during an anti-incumbent election year, Obama said that helping Democrats get elected in November is his "focus over the next several months."

Even though we have been constantly told that his only focus would be on creating and saving jobs. Though, for once, he might be telling the truth. Since he is focused on saving and creating jobs for Democrats. 

We’ll see if he is any better at that than he is at doing it for the rest of the nation.

"I hope you understand why we’re here tonight," Obama told the crowd at producer John Wells’s home. "It’s not to take a picture with the president. We’re here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded."

Mr. Wells was a line producer on the television series ‘The West Wing.’

Which is about as close to the White House as Mr. Obama should have ever been allowed to get.

    He and his lunatic fringe force socialist, commie agendas down our unwilling throats and calls it a “Progressive Triumph”.

    And…..he says it for our own good.
    “Hoodwinked and Boondoggled”

  2. Rusty Shackleford says:

    History has shown us that he who is in the greatest peril will boast the loudest.

    People, take a deep breath, sit down, and then think very carefully about what the Moron said last night.

    He is PROUD AS PUNCH of what he has done to our our country and to you.

    70% of Americans oppose every detail. 30% are on the verge of armed rebellion.

    But he wans MORE CREDIT.

    And he wants to do more. He’s not satisfied yet.

    None of this makes one whit of sense to the common sense of most Americans.

    It’s not meant to.

    This is a clear ‘shout out’ and assurance to the extreme progressive left that they need to stick with him. He is basically reminding them their goals are being met.

    Not that America is in a healthier condition…but just the opposite. That America is successfully being dismantled brick by brick and will soon be ready for the big bang.

    From his and their prospective he reminds them that they should be proud. No other president has accomplished as much toward their goal.

    As he once said “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for”

    His speak is easily to understand if we stop using common sense and the usual American mindset.

    From the standpoint of the extreme Progressive left it all makes perfect sense.

    They fully understand it, even if most of us don’t.

      Jo, you might enjoy this recent one from VDH, especially page 3:

      “Hypocrisy is an important attribute of yuppies, safe in the ‘right’ urban and suburban enclaves, and thus free to pontificate in the abstract about the sort of life they studiously avoid in the concrete.”

      Thanks TN.

      That’s a really insightful column. He nailed Obama and shows where his narcissism comes from.

      I remember my mother’s comment on a new son in law who, was a “wanna be” for Obama’s life style although he never had the Ivy League money. But he never let that stop him from trying to play the part. She called him a pompous fool. Fits our little king and mrs little king.

      In reference to my comment above I only wish it was simply his pomposity that is the problem. But the above appears to me to be a clear “coded” message to his radical buddies. He wants to assure them that they are making progress in the grand scheme of dismantling the capitalist America.

      This grand scheme has been in the works for so long, and now they feel the finish line is just around the corner. They are getting antsy. He’s trying to assure them to stick with him until the final blow can be struck.

      The past 19 or so months has been one long effort to soften America up for the big hammer blow.

      They feel they are getting so close, yet all of a sudden the average person out there is getting wise to more and more of his antics…I mean really getting him now.

      That makes him and his minions very nervous…and very dangerous as far as I’m concerned. Right now I wouldn’t be shocked at anything he might try.

      He is getting afraid of loosing even some of his radical base. He’s had to watch the dropping off of so many group’s support`.

      What a ‘leader”…

    wow to follow the debacle of the mosque at Ground Zero with this boastful claim of his ‘successfully’ (how with fraudulent elections to obtain a ‘majority’ of both houses, bribes, backroom deals, threats, blank bills and false promises (re: Federally funding abortion and public option can he brag about success)) passing ‘progressive’ legislation – Obama is either the dumbest person ever to sit in the White House or believes Americans are even dumber than he is. I know it isn’t because he cares about anything other than he & the Klingon War bride gettin’ theirs (while they can).

    Wonder how the propaganda machine is going to spin when The Won’s polling numbers slip below Bushs and/or there is a 100% failure of Dems in NOvember? It will be interesting.

    “We’re here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded.”
    Yeah, because voting is so difficult…

    • jobeth says:

      I wonder…could that be leftist code talk?

      “We’re here to make sure those who took the tough votes ( the dems that dared to vote against their party line)“ are rewarded (paid back in the most severe way).”

      Ummm…Always a possibility…..

      He’s known for telling the truth in the most duplicitous fashion…repeatedly.

  7. jobeth says:

    “…and accusing Republicans of trying to return to the policies of President George W. Bush. ”

    I plead very Guilty! (At least for most of his policies…)

  8. Tater Salad says:

    Hey Barack! Are you proud of this triumph also? Your commie buddies are doing America………..wrong!


    • Liberals Demise says:

      HOLY S–T, TATER!!
      Looks like the bail out wasn’t enough for those to big to fail.
      Can you pick out the “A” Team in this?
      Gubamint? GGGGGGGRRRRRRRRR……………

      Man…that ‘splains a whole lot!!!

    • Melly says:

      Thx for that video!

    • wardmama4 says:

      How isn’t this cronyism on a mega scale – at least with previous Presidents – We The People did not get so blatantly and financially screwed when 70+% of us were screaming not No but Hell No. In the past the Klownposse in DC would stop and go back and re-write into incremental little steps (eventually ending up in the same place – but decades down that road) – Now it is instantaneous and in our face.

      If 53% of Americans don’t vote to end this destruction of America – it will lead to a real US vs Them – and it won’t be pretty.

    The irony is he’s bragging about all this here in Los Angeles when it was the irony-proof Los Angeles Times that originally reported Democrats were being instructed to “avoid bragging” about the regime’s Legislative doom-bringers accomplishments.

    Guess he really DID want all the credit (not that they’re eager to take any). His ego is bigger than Cthulhu, the Loch Ness monster of space.

    “”We have been able to deliver the most progressive legislative agenda…”

    Some organization needs to run this quote as a commercial and continue to run it daily until

    “We’re here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded.”

    Tough votes?…If it weren’t so tragic it would be laughable. Well, so are we. “Don’t let the door hit ya, where the good Lord split ya.” (Words heard prior to getting the boot.)

    I sincerely hope that the electorate of this nation wakes up this coming NOvemeber and cries out in one voice “We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive!” (from Independence Day http://www.americanrhetoric.com/MovieSpeeches/moviespeechindependenceday.html).

    As much as that speech inspires me as an American, I truly hope and pray that the people of this nation can put aside their petty differences and come together as a nation. We must oppose the destruction of the United States of America! The enemy of the Constitution is within our borders, they are within the Congress, the State Legislatures (some), and in the White House.

    These traitors have and will do anything to remain in power, to pervert the rule of law for their gain and to their purposes, and will destroy this republic to benefit themselves.

    God help us if we should fail, I do not believe that we will get another chance to right this Nation if we do.

    Obama sounds so vain ordering the little rich stars & people, and letting them know they’ll have to gravel, as money isn’t enough to bow & kiss the feet of the royal jackas.
