    Obama makes Oval Office call to reporters

    Obama makes Oval Office call to reporters - Curl - Presidential Election Commentary - Washington Times

    "It was hard for me to believe that you were entirely serious about that socialist question," he told reporters, who had interviewed the president aboard Air Force One on Friday.

    Opening the unusual presidential call to reporters by saying that there was "just one thing I was thinking about as I was getting on the copter," he said it wasn't he who started the federal government's intervention into the nation's financial system.
    What was that bull**** about Bush being in a bubble?

    Did he not realize how his senate voting record stacked up?
    What he is doing?

    This will be fun... now that the question is out there amongst a few in the press... a little late I'd say... they could have pounded the socialist a lot more about this instead of trying to scalp Ferraro and Joe the Plumber.

    And his reply to some of this reveals precisely why Republicans were right to reject The Looter in Chief's Porkulus... and any further socialist interventions by The Chameleon and his lackeys.

    Again, calling Obama a Socialist when you cannot for your life define it doesn't produce any meaningful discussion.

    And Obama is correct in that he was not the one who started the current federal intervention into the nation's financial market. For those of us with something other then gold fish memory, the TARP was passed under Bush, not under Obama and the first $350 billion was spent under Bush, not Obama.

    And given how the Iraq invasion planning went on, Bush did live in a bubble.

    And cut the hyperpartisanism out. Or a great many people may start to ignore you. And that includes those on the right.

    I gotta agree that Obama has done nothing but sit in a bubble in his *****8***** years as our President!

    And any one that would try and scalp 'Joe the Plumber' should be tried for having a criminal mind!!!

    I find it ironic that people would rather the U.S. slip into a depression than accept government help, all because of paranoia over "socialism" (which can't even be defined, it seems). Obama is right, it didn't start with him and it won't end with him. Are we so easily forgetting that the first bailout came from Bush? The issue is bipartisan. The reason why Republicans are upset right now is because it's not their pet projects that are being inserted into the stimulus packages.

    Government cannot create wealth. Government help in the form of handing money out and dictating how business should run will not help. Taxing the hell out of people (look up the impending economy killing cap and trade Obama has planned) cannot help.

    Ronald Reagan won in a landslide because people realized he was right, the scariest words in the english language are:
    "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help."
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Trolling and baiting to avoid the discussion.


    And Obama is correct in that he was not the one who started the current federal intervention into the nation's financial market. For those of us with something other then gold fish memory, the TARP was passed under Bush, not under Obama and the first $350 billion was spent under Bush, not Obama.

    And given how the Iraq invasion planning went on, Bush did live in a bubble.

    So is this an excuse for Obama to create his little venezuela in America?

    personal attacks.




    It is posts like this that turn discussions to ****.

    Socialism: def; "More and more and more government"
    Stupid President: def; "Telling the American people it's OK to get back in the stock market for 'long term' goals". Now let's breakthat down; first, No president ever tells Americans to invest or not to invest. Second, define "long terms goals" asshole. Third, Obanana talks like he is the chosen one but let's not forget on 52% of voters, not the population voted this egomaniac in. Time will tell you Obanana you don't TELL me what to do with my money.
    A capitalist society never was founded on the government being the bank. It's that simple.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    There are times when the sure is worse than the illness.
    There's absolutly NO sound argument to support the assertion that we should ignore legitimate concerns over The Obama's plan.

    The issue is bipartisan.
    If you really think so, then you need to argue that the Dems need to present a plan that the GOP can support, as expressed by the number of 'yes' votes in Congress.

    Fascinating; so Obama didn't VOTE for the TARP program while a Senator and promote TARP as the ONLY solution?

    Speaking of living in bubbles, how long did the invasion fight last in Iraq; a few weeks? That was incredible planning.

    I suppose you think military planning can incorporate every possible enemy tactic and plan for potential insurgencies and terrorist attacks?

    Perhaps you should read some history of past wars and see how perfect that planning was as well so that you can get rid of this patently absurd notion about how to fight a well managed war. It is obvious you fell for the "hyper partisan" rhetoric espoused by the Democrats and media.

    Every debate you raise the "hyper partisan" boogey man. Perhaps you should stop abusing it lest people start to ignore you?

    Carry on.
