    I quoted him directly from the transcript which is the linked article. Do try looking again. Use the "find" feature on your browser perhaps?

    what I’m focused on is making sure that the decisions we’re making now are going to be be not good for the nightly news, not good even necessarily for the next election, but are good for the next generation.”
    It's quite clear that he's stating he doesn't care about the next election. That means he doesn't care if the people aren't backing his ideas, his ideas are more important.

    If you don't get that... your loss.

    A huge portion of this country believes that Obama is doing a good job, which is why I'm saying you only care about the fact that he's not 'listening' to Beck and other likeminded individuals. He cannot listen and follow the opinions of BOTH sides thats impossible, but you think its a crime that he's not a conservative, that he's actually the same person he was when he campaigned. You, and your opinions, do NOT represent the people. So don't pretend that by ignoring a Beck rally that the President is somehow closed his mind to the American people as a whole and not just 'your people.'

    I hardly think he's doing, "what he thinks is best for the country". If he is, then he's either stupid, or a liar.

    So now you want Obama to make decisions based on polls and short-term public opinion rather then what he and his advisers believe is best for the country that voted him to make those decisions?

    I don't agree with a lot of Obama's statements and decisions but I do agree no President should make decisions based on what is best for the nightly news or what will get them re-elected. The future generations on this country are top priority for long term decisions.

    Of course you think that way. He has a D next to his name. Therefore everything he does is bad for the country. Even when its basically the same thing Republicans have been doing.

    Yes, I said that. I said he should be Bill Clinton. Bingo.

    I said he doesn't CARE what the voters want cause his EGO says he's smarter, wiser and better then all of us.

    Well that's true. Supposedly he knows better than the people of this country. Isn't that what a representative government is all about?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
