The Promises President Barack Obama has kept…..he is the hardest working man in America
While your comtemplating who to cast your VOTE there are five ways the election will change Washington
Now some folks want to pick apart what President has to say……should we start throwing mud at the pundits who do say out of pocket ish! Folks getting mad because the president is not wussy out due to the naysayers taking jabs about his progress over the last two years. GET OVER YOURSELVES….grow up! FOX News has been throwing racially insensitive rhetoric for quite some time….now they want to come off as saints. WTF are they talking about? The media did not say shit when Bush went hard with his we going to WAR speech that sent a lot of young men and women to war unnecessarily….Bush jumped his behind on a helicopter at the end of his term and left the current administration to clean up that mess with the hopes that his wife would not divorce him. Telling folks to get in the back of the bus…isn’t that what the have’s been telling the have nots for quite sometime? That is not what President Bush meant and FOX know it…this is another example how words are manipulated by the media to brainwash their followers. Why not play the entire clip instead of a less than 3 minute sound bite? Uh huh! This is an example of why you should be voting on November 2, 2010. To those folks who are displaying ignorance about VOTING….shame on you!
This is not the Obama of the 2008 race speech, nor the Obama who promised to improve the discourse in Washington, say Fox pundits. This is racial insensitivity at its worst.
“When I looked at that, being foreign-born, I know the association that was bringing to the public mind,” Varney said on Hannity last night.
“A president starts labeling fellow Americans as enemies? That’s just beyond the pale,” Varney added.
“When you’re president, your words carry weight,” former Bush administration spokesperson Dana Perino told Sean Hannity. “Either he doesn’t know that, or he doesn’t care.”
On Fox & Friends this morning, noted tolerance expert Brian Kilmeade was quick to add his two cents.
“Sure this mid-term election is a week away, but should the President be bringing up imagery of segregation into politics?” he said. “Or do you not see it in those words?”
On Megyn Kelly’s noon hour Fox News show today, Crowley appeared personally offended at Obama’s words in Rhode Island. She called the speech “appalling.” Twice.
“‘Riding in the back’ certainly does have some Civil Rights — some racial overtones to it,” she said. “And you can’t tell me that the president of the United States was not aware of that.”
These jokers need to go sit down somewhere with all there noise……where was all that noise when that young man was shot 50 times by the police officers in New York, they basically left Al Sharpton out there by himself. Now they want to come and talk some civil right from back in the day nonsense….what about civil rights today black republicans?
At the White House press briefing yesterday, Robert Gibbs was asked about the “sit in the back” comment Obama made in Rhode Island. Here’s his response, per Newsmax (which has also been all over Sit In The Back-gate):
“[Gibbs] portrayed it as part of the ongoing metaphor that the president has used to assert Republicans drove the economy into a ditch,” the site reports.
“The president said this weekend that the Republicans are going to ride in the back and the middle class will be in the passenger’s seat,” Gibbs said.
The actual transcipt:
Obama: Let me offer an analogy I’ve been using around the country. The Republicans took America’s car and drove it into the ditch. And it was a really deep ditch. And it was really reckless driving. So afterwards we show up at the scene of the accident. The Republicans have climbed out of the car. Abandoned the accident. Patty and I, we’re putting on our boots and we’re going down and into the ditch. And it’s muddy down there, and it’s hot and it’s dusty. But you know what, we know that we’ve got to get the car out, and so we just start pushing.
And Patty, even though she’s small, she’s tough, so she’s — [demonstrates pushing]. And even though I’m skinny, I’m pretty tough, so I’m pushing. And sometimes we slip a little bit. Sometimes it’s not working — but we’re just staying on it, we’re sweating it — every once in awhile I look up, and the Republicans are up there on the road. They’re just waving. And meanwhile they’re going around whispering to everybody, ‘They’re not pushing hard enough.’ ‘They’re not pushing the right way.’ And we say to them, ‘Well, why don’t come down here and help push?’ ‘Naw, naw, naw.’ ‘Push harder, push harder.’
So we just get out and push. And finally — finally! — we get this car up on the road. The car is a little banged up. The car is a little banged up, it’s gotta go to the body shop and get a tuneup — but you know what? It’s pointed in the right direction. It’s starting to move.
And suddenly we get this tap on our shoulders. And we look — who is it? It’s the Republicans! And they’re saying: ‘Ah, we want the keys back.’
You can’t have the keys back! You don’t know how to drive!
The Republicans can come along with us, but they’ve got to get in the back seat — where they can’t do too much damage.
Have you ever noticed that when you want the car to go forward, you put it in ‘D’. When you want it to go backward, you put it in ‘R’.
