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.”

Prez Zings GOP Foe in a Stimulating Talk/New York Post, January 26, 2009.

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.

To the point that progressives such as myself are dissalusioned with his presdency. Yet right wingers continue to portray him — shockingly– as a radical.

    I didn’t take his comments as lecturing, jsut realistic. He has adopted many Republican points in his health care plan and there is no public option, as well as denail of insurance for pre-existing conditions. What is so radical?

    I am trying to think of one promise that has been fulfilled or one experiment that has been successful in the past year.

    Let’s just go back to the very beginning, January 26, 2009, just a few days after he was sworn in, the president insisted the stimulus plan had to be passed right away. (Was passed and signed 2.17.09). Now, a year later, the unemployment numbers are worse, not better. I’d like to hear from one person who has been helped in their life by this stimulus.

    And to top that off, he said something at the gop retreat to the effect that he expected a “jobs bill” on his desk immediately. Jobs bill, another word for 2nd stimulus bill – they think we’ll just change the name of it and the fools won’t know the difference.

    Here’s a quote from January, 2009:
    “We are experiencing an unprecedented economic crisis that has to be dealt with and dealt with rapidly,” Obama said during the meeting.

    Republicans say the $825 billion price tag is too big a burden for a nation crippled by debt and that it doesn’t do enough to stimulate the economy by cutting taxes.

    Didn’t that statement turn out to be true?

    The first stimulus did not work. So we change the name and pass another one? That’s dishonest and manipulative.

    I hope the congress says NO.

    I think the progressives and the left have just pushed too far. They misread us because we are for the most part silent, willing to go along.

    It takes a lot for middle America to get off the couch, but we are now awake and a force to be reckoned with. It is quite amazing how the tea party thing started – it is as true a grassroots movement as ever has been.

    I hope the republicans embrace the “teabaggers” and get the message because the two parties have had it all to themselves for way too long. I don’t think they quite know what to think with people actually watching what they are doing up there.

    There are two government programs in effect right now that provide care – medicare and medicaid. Designed to take care of the old and the poor, the most vulnerable citizens. Now, those under 65 are working and if they are not so poor as to be on medicaid, they are responsible for their healthcare and that of their families. Most people have insurance through their employers, but for those who don’t and don’t make enough to buy insurance, I think we should consentrate of these. Maybe the qualifications for medicaid should be raised slightly to a higher income bracket.

    I believe the results of the massive healthcare program will be that employers stop providing insurance for their employees and in the long run that means even more people without insurance.

    Medicare is something that has been deducted from salaries for as long as it has been in effect, with employers providing contributions to it as well. It is taken from your paycheck and is not a choice so for that reason the promise has been made that at 65 you get some degree of healthcare.

    But for the most part, the government is not there to provide charity, but to protect the country from enemies. Charity is a matter for churches or other organizations which operate on purely VOLUNTARY contributions.

In fact it is unproductive. That might have worked for a couple months, but the past year is pure Obama. And we got three years to go.

    What are we going to do now? And since Barack Obama is president at this time, he’s the only president we got. And he is making things worse.

    If you want to use logic, and at the same time keep saying it was the previous administration’s fault, then everything that Bush got passed on to him was Bill Clinton’s fault, and so on and so forth and you can take it back to the beginning of time if you want to.

Not make the Insurance Companies richer by including an Individual Mandate, and turn the working poor into law breakers.

    this is what Robert Gibbs said about Mohammad:

    “Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is going to meet justice and he’s going to meet his maker,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told John King on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning.

    “He’s likely to be executed for the heinous crimes he committed,” he added.

    Think about what he said here. They want this terrorist to be tried in a criminal court, with all the rights afforded an accused and yet they come out with statements like this, and Obama has said approximately the same thing. Now, you can’t have it both ways, because you can’t say things like this and pollute the trial as if there is not enough prejudice already out there. I mean, he gets the presumption of innocence, if he is going to be given constitutional rights. Also, if he wasn’t given his Miranda warning, no confession will be admissible. His lawyer is going to claim this first thing, and we’ll be lucky if the whole case is not thrown out. Is that what they want, maybe, because these men are lawyers and they know they cannot prejudice the trial by saying he is guilty and will certainly be executed before he is tried and while he sands cloaked in the presumption of innocence. But, of course, he should not get constitutional rights. He is an enemy of the constitution and the country.
