When most presidents lose to a landslide in the mid terms elections, even Bush, they are mostly conciliatory in their post election speech, but not this guy Obama. He came out starting that way saying ‘I heard you’ and then in his normal self serving arrogant blame others attitude and smirking said only 1/3 of the people voted. This guy was so damn arrogant by saying only 1/3 of the people voted as if the other 2/3 would vote for him. His idea of compromise is if the republicans agree with him. I say they shouldn’t compromise. They should say “you failed over the last five years so we’re taking over now.”
Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, wondered whether Obama was “detached or in denial.”
“In word and tone, he refused to take responsibility or even express humility,” Priebus said. “He seemed to suggest the only ideas he’s willing to listen to are his own, old, failed ones.

Arrogant, stubborn, pugnacious, everything but acknowledging HIS BLAME for why the American populace (Who WORK for their living, as opposed to those who VOTE for their living) is totally disgusted, disenchanted, and completely pissed off at his Crown Prince, maybe KING attitude! It matters NOT that he is part Black. It DOES matter that he is continually destroying what WAS once the most powerful, most RESPECTED nation in the world, and given the terrorists ENCOURAGEMENT to strike us as our strength is daily-eroded by HIS decisions to reduce the military to Pre-WW-2 levels, as well as being obviously against Israel in words and deeds!
In an article appearing in Newsmax they said: Since he first took office, President Barack Obama has legislatively decimated the Democratic Party, losing more seats under his watch than any president since Harry Truman.
From 2008, Democrats have forfeited at least 69 House seats, and that number could increase as unsettled midterm election results are announced, The Hill reports.
Add to that the loss of 13 Democratic seats in the Senate during Obama’s six years in the White House, and it becomes obvious that Democratic candidates who blame Obama’s negative influence for their loss have a legitimate complaint.
He says he’s willing to work with the republicans but to him that means them agreeing with him. Like I always said listen to what he says and then think the opposite and that’s what he means. He was saying how wonderful everything is now . Unemployment is down (really up) deficits are down (really up) and healthcare costs are down ( really up) and so on. He said he won’t repeal healthcare but is willing to change things they offer. I don’t believe that for a second either.
He said unemployment is down, but that is just counting the ones on the dole collecting unemployment. Actual statistics show 1 in 3 people are out of the work force. That is at least 100 million. He said that more people are working and he created millions of jobs. Well 50 million people are on food stamps and another 50 million are on welfare and most of the jobs he created are part time jobs and fast food jobs..
He said deficits are down, but they are really up as he spends and spends and our debt is now 17 trillion and climbing which our kids and grandkids will have to pay. Most young people already owe at least $41,000 to the debt so he is robbing from our kids. To be fair though this has been going on for the past few presidents now dating back to Clinton. At least Clinton was reined in when the republicans took over congress and the senate and they had a balanced budget then Bush started spending again..
Obama said thanks to Obamacare more people have health insurance now and more people are on Medicaid now than ever before. Notice he said “Medicaid” and not “Medicare” which Obamcare eventually gets rid of. Many people who signed up for Obamcare are finding the deductables so high they can’t afford that much out of pocket (up to $5000 for a single person and $21,000 for a family of four) and once you sign up for it you can’t get out of it without paying a hefty fine or tax. That is so un-American and pro socialist which is what Obamacare is all along. Obamacare is not about healthcare it’s about control. If it were just about seeing that people are insured, it would not be 2000 pages long and only about 20 pages.
Obama said he won’t repeal healthcare, but would listen to changes. I doubt he would even listen if it didn’t go his way. One of the things I heard a new senator say to Sean Hannity last night is they want to repeal the Independent Advisory Board. I would certainly endorse that as that is the board made up of 15 non medical people that tells you who gets what procedure and who doesn’t according to your age versus government cost. That board also looks at Medicare and if Medicare is in the red like it is now they make cuts there too. Keep in mind Obama took 750 million out of Medicare to pay for Obamacare.
In an article appearing in Red State said : As the reality of a Republican wave became imminent last night, a dangerous narrative began to take hold among the conservative talking heads on cable news and in the victory speeches of the victorious Republicans. The narrative was that now that the Republicans have control of both chambers of Congress, it is incumbent upon them to work with Obama and the other Democrats in the service of “getting things done” and “fixing the broken system.”
My hope is that Republicans reject this patent nonsense for the poppycock that it is. Not only should Republicans not work closely with Democrats, they should instead keep them as far away as possible, preferably across a large moat filled with sharp stakes, acid, and alligators. That way, our side will be safer from friendly fire when we launch the flaming tar at the remaining Democrats in office.
After Obama’s speech Rush Limbaugh stated, “If voters wanted Republicans to work with Democrats, they wouldn’t have seen to it that so many Democrats got creamed last night,” he pointed out.
“The country’s depressed because of Democrats. The country is out of work because of Democrats. … There is no way the vote yesterday was a signal to work with them. They have had six years of unstoppable destruction, and the American people — and I, by the way — want it stopped.”
Only the Republicans, Limbaugh concluded, have the power and the potential to “stop this country from being transformed into something it was never founded nor intended to be.”
Yes it is true what Rush Limbaugh and other pendants have said in that the people elected republicans to fix the problems and not get along with Obama and the democrats but to stop them. We must hold their feet to the fire.
