Obama: Powerful Interests “Talk About Me Like A Dog”

Via Pundette:

Obama went off the teleprompter, today during a speech in Milwaukee, and that’s never a good thing:

“Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true,” he told a crowd largely consisting of union members.

Okay, well that was a weird thing for a President of the United States to say…

Some questions:

1. They talk about him like a dog as in; “Obama woof! Obama woof woof!”, or they talk about him as if he is a dog, himself? I’m presuming the latter. But it wasn’t clear.

2. Who are these “special interests”, of which he speaks, and how bizarre is it that he would decry “powerful special interests” in front of a crowd of one of the most powerful special interests in the country – union members and their families?

3. Americans love doggies. Who doesn’t love dogs? Oh yeah….

4. I only know of one person who has spoken of Obama like he’s a dog, and that  person is Obama:

The president appeared on ABC’s morning talk show “The View” Thursday, where he talked about the forced resignation of Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, his experience with race and his roots.

When asked about his background, which includes a black father and white mother, Obama said of African-Americans: “We are sort of a mongrel people.”

Later on in the speech, Obama used his stale ditch and slurpie analogies, where he describes his herculean efforts to pull the economy out of a ditch, while the lazy s.o.b.s who drove it there (Repubs), watch and sip their slurpies. He must really like that one because this is about the eleventy-fifth time he’s said it.

While a community organizer in Chicago, Obama helped ACORN prevail in court so that credit standards were lowered all across the nation. When the inevitable financial meltdown occurred in Sept. 2008, it was Obama who was sipping on his slurpie as he gleefully  watched McCain’s Presidential prospects evaporate for good.


How Quickly Things Change

The Politico reports that Dems are “running away from health care.”

A handful of House Democrats are making health care reform an election year issue — by running against it.

At least five of the 34 House Democrats who voted against their party’s health care reform bill are highlighting their “no” votes in ads back home. By contrast, party officials in Washington can’t identify a single House member who’s running an ad boasting of a “yes” vote — despite the fact that 219 House Democrats voted in favor of final passage in March.

One Democratic strategist said it would be “political malfeasance” to run such an ad now.

Democrats have taken that advice to heart; it appears that no Democratic incumbent — in the House or in the Senate — has run a pro-reform TV ad since April, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) ran one.

Most of the Democrats running ads highlighting their opposition to the law are in conservative-leaning districts and considered the most endangered.

They’re using their vote against the overhaul as proof of their willingness to buck party leadership and their commitment to watching the nation’s debt.

More “no” voters are expected to release similar ads as the November midterm elections approach.

It’s a far cry from where Democrats hoped they would be when they passed the landmark legislation in March. Many senior Democrats said last winter that the law’s popularity would increase as Americans were able to better understand the complex law and take advantage of its benefits.

But the public’s views on the legislation may have been more settled than anyone thought.

The American citizenry has proven to be a harder nut to crack then these Leftist ideologues ever bargained for. But our resistance to their ruinous agenda is futile until they get voted out of office. It’s November or never.
