    Obama: Something is wrong with country's politics

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Aligning himself with a public fed up with economic uncertainty and Washington gridlock, President Barack Obama declared Thursday: "There is nothing wrong with our country. There is something wrong with our politics."

    His toughly worded message - he said there was frustration in his voice, in case anyone missed the point - came amid a series of polls showing that people are disgusted with political dysfunction and are dispensing blame all around, including on Obama.

    Obama aired his frustration with the ways of Washington at an event in Michigan before pivoting to his re-election campaign and a pair of big-money fundraisers in New York City.

    He delivered a condensed version of that message at a fundraiser at the lower Manhattan home of movie producer Harvey Weinstein, where celebrities Gwyneth Paltrow and Jimmy Fallon, were among the approximately 50 guests who paid $35,800 each to attend.

    Obama said he told his Michigan audience that it deserves better than what it's been getting from Washington.

    "They look at what's happening in Washington and they think these folks are really from outer space because they don't seem to understand how critical it is for us all to work together, Republicans, Democrats, independents, in order to move this country forward," Obama said.

    Oh My Gawd!!!!! Is this clown for real? Is he really saying to people that he was the one that wanted to compromise, and the others weren't? I guess that makes sense in liberal speak a compromise is when you see everything their way.

    Look, don't take it from me, let's hear from Felonious Monk, an Obama supporter no doubt.....



    Demo's, the Black community, liberals, and the most important group independents are leaving this clown in droves...Obama will be lucky to only lose by a close number, and not cause a conservative landslide....

    Thanks for the Socialist cretin libs, you have single handedly woken up America to your lies, and exposed how dishonest it all is, now good luck ever getting this type of chance again in the near future.....hahahaha.....

    Obama said that his vote against raising the debt level was done for purely partisan political reasons. He now feels he has any standing to argue against such tactics?

    He is right. He is also a large part of the problem.

    Re: Obama: Something is wrong with country's politics

    Wow, you're a complete idiot, you might want to realize some things:

    1. Obama not a socialist

    2. He was correct in saying that something is wrong with the politics of this nation. I see it as a problem when PACs can run ads for a political campaign and donate unlimited amounts of money to a campaign and then just disappear, without anyone knowing who did the donating.

    3. From the article:

    His toughly worded message - he said there was frustration in his voice, in case anyone missed the point - came amid a series of polls showing that people are disgusted with political dysfunction and are dispensing blame all around, including on Obama.

    Thus the people are disgusted with Washington as a whole not just solely with Obama, but of course, you can't notice that for your partisan hackery.

    Edit: Grammar, thanks ecofarm :P

    Re: Obama: Something is wrong with country's politics

    If Obama said that there is something wrong with the political system it is because he can't get his way.

    Don't worry, he found a black guy that disagree's with Obama. That proves Obama sucks, case closed.

    This goes hand in hand with his, "messy democracy", comment. The problem that Obama has with our system, is that he isn't the absolute ruler and he has to deal with Congress to get things done. Keeping the president from becoming the absolute ruler is an example of our system working.

    When white people disagree with Obama, they're called racists. So, they're left with no choice but to look for black people who criticize his policies.

    Hows the weather today in that alternate reality you've created for yourself?

    Yea, except they're not, lol. Conservatives play the race card much more often. You're just shooting off talking points.
