Obama to a Huge Segment of America: "Bug Out"

And Axelrod adds 9/12 Protesters Do Not Represent American People, Fox News September 14, 2009. Have we ever had such a president who says he only is the president of part of the people? .

Yes we have. I believe it was in 2000 at a fund-raiser when Mr. Bush addressed the crowd "This is an impressive crowd - the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elites; I call you my base."

Sorry Lefty, not even close. I could say you could do better, but you can't because there never has been a president in my life who is dismissive of so many Americans.

I know Obama doesn't realize it, but, he is talking about Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Jamie Gerlich, ACORN and other liberals. It was the Conservatives warning about the problem, including President Bush.

The Tea Parties were mobsters, so Pelosi and other Leftists say. Where is their opinion of the G 20 rioters?

Good point, and good quote, Lefty. But don't look for anyone on this site to acknowledge that.

Lefty said...

A mob is a mob - There is no excuse for destruction of property or violence against unarmed people.
I did see plenty of peaceful protest going on, is that ok with you, Sark?

That is a good quote, I agree. See there. Was Obama using self-deprecating humor? I must have missed it. BTW, what do you have against the "have-mores"? Them's good folks.

Lefty-

In your opinion, which one (Tea Bag or G-20) caused more government expense, had more arrests, private property damage, and air pollution and litter?
Which kind of protest should have been chastised by the majority elected leaders?
It would easier to say which one did and which one didn't.

Which one had more Liberal POVs and which one had more Conservative points-of-view?

The G-20 protests. If I were the parent of one of those kids I would say “O.K. because I made my money under capitalism and you are now biting the hand that feeds you, no more financial support. Go do it your way and see how long you survive.”

Lefty said...

Well, I don't really know what the G-20 protesters are protesting. I'm not involved in that issue and can't project as to what their points of view may be. I do know that the G-20 meetings involved leaders from all around the globe and the scale of the event was massive.
I do know that the stated objective of the "tea-bag" protests was to disrupt the democratic process and prevent a thoughtful exchange of ideas. (http://thinkprogress.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/townhallactionmemo.pdf) The disruptions were on the local scale and evidently widespread.
I'm not sure where you are going here. Are you suggesting that thuggish behavior and mob mentality is justified by political opinions?

You could not be more wrong even if you were POV or BB. The "tea bag" protests were individuals participating in the political process by making their voices heard. The only problem is that these voices were not communicating the message the left and their tame fringe media wanted to hear. These voices could not be silenced, no matter what the left and the media tried. Therefore the only recourse the left and the fringe media had was to try to vilify them. OOPS! That did not work as the lies about the tea parties only encouraged the "tea baggers" and spurred them to increase their efforts.

Back to the subject of the thread. There is a certain equality to the fact that while Obama does not want to represent or listen to a large section of the citizens of this country, they in turn do not want him as their President. This section of people will probably get their wish in 2012 if Mr. Obama is not impeached due to an investigation of his dealings with ACORN and other groups after 2010.
