REWIND: Obama’s first message to Republicans was, “I won”

This is just a clip of President Obama as he addressed the Republican retreat in Baltimore yesterday, or I should say as he lectured the Republicans.  As usual, this is being protrayed by the MSM with clips here and there in order to prove whatever point they are trying to make.  For anyone who did not see it live, please go to CSPAN and listen to the whole thing in order to judge it all in context.  The facial expressions are worth the price of admission.

“We have to think about tone.”

You mean kinda like this?  First message to Republicans  (Eric Cantor) was “I won.”  Emplied:  Get used to it.

Watch this video to recapture the tone that was set by the administration from the word go.

“President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.”

So let’s tell the truth here.  It was the president’s responsibility to set the “tone,” to provide leadership. And he did.  It was not one of bi-partanship.  The democrats have the Senate and the House and the Presidency, and the tone was to get out of our way, “I won.”” Quote from Politico, January 23, 2009.

And now that the tide is turning, they want to mislead and rewrite the facts.  And that’s what the little summit was all about, to try to shift blame to the Republicans for this horrible failure of 2009, delivered by a complete democrat controlled Washington, D. C.

Not going to work.  We have a good memories.

And probably also to divert attention away from the backtrack on the Manhattan terrorist trials, which is good news, but also highlights the fact, once again, that the first reactions and instincts of the administration are flawed.

Is he giving the GOP the middle finger? Watch. Probably. He did the same to Hillary and McCain during the campaign. That’s the kind of guy he is, real classy.

If you can take it, here’s how MSNBC is playing this.

MSNBC Obama Love Fest.

Note:  Take a look at the Neilsen ratings and these three, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, and Chris Matthews are at the dead bottom of the ratings.   But they are in love and as has long been known, “love is blind.” That’s how it is, one will go to the ends of the earth to defend the object of true love.  Too bad nobody is watching.

Interesting that the top CNN show is the Joy Behar Show.  Olbermann, Larry King, and Rachel Maddow bottom three, and I don’t even see Chris Matthews on the list, nor Anderson Cooper. Does that mean they were a scratch?
