    Obama: Republicans "Do What They're Told"

    RealClearPolitics - Video - Obama: Republicans "Do What They're Told"

    The Obama:

    OBAMA: Sometimes Democrats can be their own worst enemies. Democrats are an opinionated bunch. You know the other side, they just kind of do what they’re told. Democrats, ya’ll thinkin’ for yourselves. I like that in you, but it’s time for us to make sure that we finish the job here, we are this close and we’ve got to be unified.
    Isn’t this The Obama telling the Dems to stop thinking for themselves and be more like the dutiful drones in the GOP?

    No. But, he's right. We are an unruly bunch, and do not march in lockstep. Plus, the lines were pretty funny, as delivered, and yet have a serious message.

    We understood.
    Not that we'll all listen, but ya know, good message still

    the harmless fuzzball, for instance, simply articulates ideas in circulation long before EIB owned a microphone

    he has hadly spoken a word i for one didn't say years before the fuzzball was even born

    limbaugh, in fact, is the real dittohead

    dems, on the other hand, from the pages of dp to the very top itself, appear too frequently, tragically, to insult personally those with whom they happen to disagree

    hardly winning politics

    from day one the prez has revealed he does not understand the difference between LEADERSHIP and cheap ordinary opposition politics

    oh well

    Leave it to Obama to continue the politics of destruction.

    Yes and no.
    He is telling them to be like what the Dems believe the Repubs do in general.
    Within certain issues, his statement is correct of both parties.

    I happen to see Dems as much in 'lock-step' as I do Repubs.

    The real question is will Dems (in general) be in 'lock-step' with him, and thereby show that it is they who also engage in said behavior.

    Re: Obama: Republicans "Do What They're Told"

    You must understand the tactics that Obama lives by and has spent his adult life preaching and teaching to others.

    Obama will for example say that he doesn't believe his opposition is racist and then go behind the curtain and tell his followers to keep playing the race card. He will come out and try to look like a middle of the road moderate and send his minions out to attack anyone who opposes him for sound reasons call them names lie about them distort the truth and claim the high ground because he didn't say it, the pesson who did was just expressing freedom of speech.
    Then there is the firing of the I.G. for going after a crooked Sacramento Major or the dropping of the case against the Black Panthers before they could be sentenced for the crimes they were guilty of, all the time claiming it was the Justice Department not him. And Finally he had the orders for the National Guard member changed to stop the court case into his birth place.

    In every case he he either directly behind what happened or just pretended not to know or what ever he had to do to play innocent, when even the damn dumb Dims (no spell error) know it's true.

    Obama is doing & saying the opposite of what is true and this is no different it's the Dims who can't think for themselves and the proof is Obama himself along with Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the Granola Liberals who are in lock step following the dictates from their leader who operates from the Saul Alenskey rules for radicals. and the guidelines set out in the Communist Manifesto example of the National Socialist Party of the prewar Germany. If you can read and comprehend English you can see it. If you deny it it's further proof you are one of the Dims who are unable to think for yourself and are unwilling to learn or face the truth.

    Obama has filled his Administration with self avowed Communists and radicals with wild outlandish idea aimed at the destruction of the Nation just as Obama promised on "Mar 15, 2008 when he said: "My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it".
    Now Obama is also using the words of Nikita Khrushchev along with his other guidelines: "We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism".
    Yes you may have heard it before but it bears repeating until the word gets to every American Patriot that we are in a fight for the survival of our Nation as the Founding fathers intended it ti remain.
    If like me you ever took the oath of office I remind you it says in part: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, So help me God.
    There is no part of this or any similar oath that has in it an expiration date.
    It's time to live up to your oath and fight this Obama administration every nonviolent way you can. Don't do it for Republicans of Libertarians, Independents, or any party do it for your children and your childrens, children, and the very survival of our way of life and this is no exaggeration.

    Re: Obama: Republicans "Do What They're Told"

    If "Do what they're told" means that they're actually listening to what their constituents say than Ill all for that. If the clowns actually did what the voters want then probably we wouldnt be in this current mess but who knows.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
