Whew! Obama Won’t Govern Out Of Anger

From an impressed Associated Press:

Obama: Anger isn’t governing strategy

Mar 23


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he cannot "govern out of anger" just because of public outrage over bonuses paid at financial institutions kept afloat by taxpayer dollars.

Obama’s declaration came as he pushed for a $3.6 trillion federal budget proposal that already is opposed from within his own party. As he seeks lawmakers’ support for his first budget, he took a political risk in signaling discomfort with a separate plan that slaps a punitive, 90 percent tax on bonuses paid to American International Group employees.

Obama, a law professor-turned-chief executive, said during an interview broadcast Sunday that he does not like the idea of "passing laws that are just targeting a handful of individuals" or using the tax code to punish people.

"Let’s see if there are ways of doing this that are both legal, that are constitutional, that uphold our basic principles of fairness, but don’t hamper us from getting the banking system back on track," Obama said on CBS’ "60 Minutes."

In a wide-ranging interview broadcast Sunday night, Obama said he expected the Senate would produce a much different and more acceptable version of the bill – one he could sign…

More pressing for Obama, however, was his own federal budget proposal.

Senate Republicans warned of deficits that could climb to $20 trillion in coming years and a weakened dollar if Obama and his Democratic allies get their proposal passed.

But even some of Obama’s fellow Democrats aren’t in favor of the proposal, which makes changes to farm and energy policies. Fiscal conservatives also bemoan its impact on deficits; it could generate $9.3 trillion in red ink over the next decade…

Isn’t it all too revealing how Mr. Obama speaks about his administration, even on the rare occasions, such as this one, when he has stumbled onto the truth about how going after AIG would be tantamount to ex poste facto legislation.

President Barack Obama says he cannot "govern out of anger" …

Who talks like this, except for tin-horn dictators like Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers?

Besides, shouldn’t any anger be directed at Mr. Obama himself, who had the bonus caps removed from the final stimulus bill?

Obviously, he has decided to forgive himself in a gracious gesture to himself.

Meanwhile, Mr. Obama prefers to govern out of madness:

Obama’s declaration came as he pushed for a $3.6 trillion federal budget proposal…

Of course there is method to all of this. Since this budget, like all of his previous bills, is yet another Christmas holiday tree laden with socialist payouts.

But to use our previous yardstick, even if you spend one dollar for every year since the beginning of the universe (13 billion years ago), you would have to do it 277 times to pay for this $3.6 trillion budget.

The enormity of Mr. Obama’s Marxist revolution is so overwhelming it cannot be truly comprehended.

So it can hide in plain sight.

    This man is hell-bent on destroying capitalism and our Republic. At some point words will need to be replaced by action. Look anywhere on the Internet and you’ll find watch-dog group after watch-dog group cataloging the nefarious activities of this corrupt bastard and his cohorts in the Congress. Our Republic cannot endure four years of his nonsense.

  2. RightWinger says:

    After seeing the clips of last night’s softball fest, I can see why he won’t govern out of anger. Seems he had plenty to giggle and chuckle about during the interview. Too bad he didn’t get asked about how the middle class has just seen 90% of their 401(K) and retirement accounts wiped out? Yeah that would have been a real knee slapper! I bet Lil’ Barry gets a kick out of telling stories like that during his Wed night cocktail parties.

  3. curvyred says:

    If you watched the Sixty MInutes interview you will see he begins to laugh about the economy:


    • RightWinger says:

      Yeah, “gallows humor” as I believe he called it. Had Bush done that (or any Conservative for that matter), the MSM would be calling for his head on a stick for laughing at how the country is going down in flames.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Well, one of his less-reported retorts a few weeks ago was, “You know, I have other things to do besides deal with the economy.”

      Yeah, like book appearances on 60 Minutes, The Tonight Show and so on. Ont he one hand, all he did was talk about the economy…then…when interviewed about it, he’d rather not discuss it.

      Totally beyond the realm of rational. I’ll bet mental health experts are having a field day with this dysfunctional collection of DNA droppings. It’s like having Dr Smith from Lost In Space for president. Yes, I see it as just that bad. I never could’ve believed that life could imitate art so closely, so completely. Yet, still, there are few people doing any sort of double-takes on the words and actions of this sand-for-brains (sorry, sand) of a “chief executive”.

      There are no words to describe just how bad a president he is and will be. My mother of 77 years lived trough all of FDR. She was telling me how her dad, my grandad hated that guy’s guts. And my grandad was an immigrant from Great Britain.

      Words to describe this holder of the highest public office…. There are none. But maybe there will be a new word to describe a complete screwup in the future.

      “Man, you really obama’ed that account. I’m going to have to fire you”

      “Wilson, in right field is looking for it in the sun…looks like he’s on it….OHHHHH, he obama’ed it….and the run scores…”

      “During the construction of the building, it was discovered that several senior designers obama’ed the whole system and therefore there was no real integrity or strength to hold it all together…so it naturally collapsed.”

      Hey, this could catch on.

      And even in foreign countries.

      “You Americans…you use the word “obama” for a big mistake, right? Well here in Noplaceinparticularstan, we use it differently.”

      “Really? How do you use it?”

      “Well, let me put it this way: You just stepped in obama.”

      “nobody told me the little flags had anything to do with the utility lines. Guess I Obamaed it”

      “it was the 18th green. You could hear a pin drop as Tiger lined up the putt to win. I had been holding the fart for 5 minutes, and then, just as his putter moved forward, shit, I Obama’ed it.”

  4. mybrotherkeeper says:

    Obviously, Chairman Obamao is afraid of:
    The lawsuits that will bring the truth out if some of the bonus recipients sue.
    The truth of how he, Sen. Dodd, and Barney Frank are involved.

    Once again, if we just had the MSM doing their job this guy would be cut down to size. As it is, he may get too big to allow to fail. I wish I could ask some of the decent MSMers, if there are any left:
    Do you really want this to happen?

  5. proreason says:

    “he does not like the idea of “passing laws that are just targeting a handful of individuals” or using the tax code to punish people”

    So, either he is lying or he has no influence over his party in Congress. Which is it?

    I’m kidding of course. Every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie. In this case, not only is he lying, his handlers ginned up both the faux outrage and the idea to target induviduals and use the tax code. That one sentence contains 3 outrageous lies, and two of the lies cover up one of the most dangerous attacks on the Constitution ever taken in peacetime in this country .

    And this man is the President of our country. It is simply UNBELIEVABLE.

    • Professor_Repulso says:

      “…Like other top politicians, like [Clinton], for instance, he smiles and lies in your face and keeps smiling and lying even when he knows you know it. Only the most successful of them can do that. You or I would break down, mortified.
      “So, I too want him to fail. But I don’t just want his Communist program to fail. I also want him to fail totally, across the board. I want him to fail personally. I want to see him humiliated for what he has already done to this country. I want him to be in office when the feces really hits the fan.”

  6. mybrotherkeeper says:

    I just saw the clip on Obama laughing, (thanks CR) and I could not even understand his excuse. Maybe he really thinks this is too ‘good a crisis to waste.’

  7. russ51 says:

    And this man is the President of our country. It is simply UNBELIEVABLE“…

    Hmmm, yes it is but then again when you consider how all the Henrietta Hughes types and Peggy Joseph types came out to vote then its not so unbelievable…

    They came out 69,297,997 strong

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      I always wondered about the exact number of stupid people we have in this country. Nice to actually put a definite value to it. Hopefully, then, the advertisers and marketers can now aim their products squarely at them and leave the rest of us alone.

      If only…..

    Economic Development is stongly correlated to Property Rights.

    This study looks at the relationship between 3 components of Property Rights and GDP. The 3 components are Legal and Political Property Rights, Physical Property Rights, and Intellectual Property Rights.

    Countries that have stong Property Rights protections have high GDPs. Of the 3 components, the Legal and Political Property Rights correlation is the strongest.

    But now that Congress has decided to sieze the legal bonuses of AIG, we are officially a Banana Republic.

    The next step is for the wealth of the country to descend to the level of countries dominated by African Warlords.

    We all knew that anyway. The study proves what we know instinctively.


  9. Rusty Shackleford says:

    For crying out loud! How many times is this flaming idiot going to be on TV? Or, perhaps….will he just have the government buy a TV station that he’ll be on every day, blabbering about how great he is?

    I just cannot believe this dunce. Still campaigning and little toadies like Steve Kroft just eat this crapola up. I suppose once everyone has had a turn to have the honor of interviewing this dope, they will all have a special badge to wear or place on their newsdesk.

    And, you can’t really call them “interviews” as the questions are no harder than they were during the campaign. But, at least he has an opportunity to correct anything he may have said in error, with more lies and self-praise.

    Good thing he isn’t going to govern out of anger. Truly the mark of the benevolent dictator. I was afraid he might do something….you know…..crazy…..like Pelosi kinda crazy…..like….standing on the roof of a moving car kinda crazy.

    What a piece of bad cheese this slug is. I really do not get the mechanism that causes people to worship anyone of celebrity status. And, that’s really ALL he is. Who else but a celebrity who has no foundation in accomplishment could possibly be idolized to such a ridiculous level?

    This is getting beyond ridiculous….TV appearances, comic books, (In)action figures, a book deal that’s not even of any value. I swear…the Stalin-esque and Saddam Hussein style statues can’t be far behind.

    This blubbering bubblehead with the oversized speed-brakes for ears has GOT to go.

  10. DGA says:

    I’m pretty sure that when he started making noise within the DNC about being their ‘man’, they all talked about him not having any executive experience, or anything even close to the knowlege that it takes to be a president of the US. The decision was probably arrived at the point that congress actually runs the country, so why do we need a president with a high IQ anyway? When the deal was struck, I’m betting that the DNC told B.hussein o.b.a.m.a (One Big Ass Mistake America) that he would essentially be their PR guy, he is very good at that anyway, and to not worry too much about making big decisions, that pelosi and reid et al would make those decisions for him. He would just be needed to do the public signings and just generally do as they tell him to. So, you see him on The tonight show, on every possible quasi news show, picking final four teams, and so many other things that a normal president would never do. I also would think that the rest of the world would be laughing at us here if it weren’t for the small point that when the US economy goes downhill, so does theirs. They’re probably laughing anyway.

  11. Liberals Demise says:

    When is this wet spot going to govern?
    From everything done in the past 60 days……….he needs to get himself another gypsy to read his tea leaves.
    This ain’t governing….. one damn bit!!

  12. Odie44 says:

    We are not only seeing an inept trainwreck of a President – the laugh, the “i won”, the utter ignorance at high level topics, horrid appointments and well just plain bad judgement in everything he does; but we are seeing the damage of a troubled, fatherless son who is desperately trying to appease everyone, while not knowing how to do anything.

    It’s akin to someone who dotes their maternal family members, namely “grand mothers” who raise their kids. Due to the shame and guilt of his mother and father being drug addicted throw aways, his deepest desire is to “be loved” through feelings rather than a tangible resume of accomplishments.

    Generally marry strong women who echo the maternal guidance (Micheele fits the bill) and lives and dies by perception. Looks, pedigree, house address, etc.

    An pseudo-intellectual, empty delivearble, zero accomplishment of a 8 year old is what makes people laugh at big boy/big girl issues on national TV. Feign a smile, chuckle a bit – and hell you dont have to do your homework, in fact you get ice cream…

    • Professor_Repulso says:

      Please permit me to be overly simplistic. The fellow is quite similar to the Kevin Pollak character in the movie Casino. The front man. The stooge. The tool. The cover for all sorts of infamous and unsavory characters which, in this case, are best represented by the deranged and degenerate criminal George Soros. Of course I am not implying that he is not totally sympathetic to the goals of his puppet masters. What is there in his discernible background (along with being a rather disingenuous sociopath) that would suggest otherwise?

  13. BigOil says:

    Our founding fathers attempted to prevent an Obama-esque Presidency by setting a 35 year minimum age requirement. Unfortunately, it was left up to the electorate to ensure the maturity level matched the age. Now we are stuck with an adolescent running our country.

  14. proreason says:

    When Forbes sounds rebellious, shouldn’t it be a wake-up call for anybody but a Moron?

    “We are at a dangerous moment in our public life, one that reflects fundamental failures of our democracy. To many if not most Americans, the evaporation of the last decade’s worth of economic growth looks like a plot orchestrated by the army of unscrupulous millionaires and billionaires. And now it looks as though the same people who manufactured vast sums of pseudo-wealth for their own enjoyment are now demanding the tax dollars of an anxious middle class. I’d be shocked if we didn’t see the equivalent of the Whiskey Rebellion break out in the next several months, and President Obama, a man who has grown accustomed to praise, will, fairly or otherwise, bear the brunt of it.”

    If Drooling Barney wasn’t out of the “anger closet” before, he obviously is now:

    “Rep. Frank calls Scalia a ‘homophobe’ in interview
    Mar 23, 7:04 PM (ET)

    WASHINGTON (AP) – Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia a “homophobe” in a recent interview with the gay news Web site 365gay.com.

    The Democratic lawmaker, who is gay, was discussing gay marriage and his expectation that the high court would some day be called upon to decide whether the Constitution allows the federal government to deny recognition to same-sex marriages.

    “I wouldn’t want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court,” said Frank. The video of the interview is available online.”


    This is interesting because it shows how bold the nutters like Drooling Barney have become with their 53% majority.

    I have long postulated that what really drives Franks is insane anger. He isn’t just a mutant, he is so deviant that he can’t get the other mutants to smile at him. That has to be frustrating.

    But what are they going to do in the near future when the real fight comes……spit at us?

  16. canary says:

    Obama allready choked on his words and said it was from anger when he threatened to go after AIG, while he was pretending he didn’t put the bonuses in writing, until Dodd admitted he did. He can’t keep up with this own b.s.

      Blame the teleprompter!!! TAO is an empty-suit and is clueless without the teleprompter.

    I couldn’t agree more. Each day I wonder how much further down the rabbit hole we can go. It’s a frickin’ nightmare!
