Thug in Chief Obama: I’m “Itching For a Fight”

HOPE and CHANGE – Chicago-Style

He’s a uniter.

** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”

It doesn’t stop there.
Barack Obama told supporters last week that he’s “itching” for a fight with Republicans.
USA Today reported:

As fellow Democrats accuse him of caving in to Republicans on the tax cut deal, President Obama is repeatedly promising them that he will fight the GOP aggressively when it takes over the U.S. House and adds senators next month.

“I will be happy to see the Republicans test whether or not I’m itching for a fight on a whole range of issues,” Obama said last week. “I suspect they will find I am. And I think the American people will be on my side on a whole bunch of these fights.”

Obama has echoed this pledge repeatedly as House and Senate Democrats wrestle with the package that also includes items sought by Obama, including a 13-month extension of unemployment benefits and an array of middle class tax cuts. In a conference call with political supporters, Obama said: “We are going to go right back at Republicans in showing why the things that they wanted in this compromise don’t make sense.”

One of those fights will be over the very thing that some Democrats are angry about: The two-year extension of George W. Bush-era tax cuts for the nation’s wealthiest Americans.

“When they expire in two years, I will fight to end them,” Obama said. “Just as I suspect the Republican Party may fight to end the middle-class tax cuts that I’ve championed and that they’ve opposed.”

    The headline seems to have a racist tinge to it.

  • chuck in st paul

    I truly think this guy is insane now. He seems so disconnected from reality. The only America that is behind him is the kleptocrats. The greatest majority of Americans are finally seeing how boned they are from this assclowns policies as enacted by Congress.

    I fear for a psychotic break by this man.

  • chuck in st paul

    “Just as I suspect the Republican Party may fight to end the middle-class tax cuts that I’ve championed and that they’ve opposed.”

    Insanity. QED.

  • paul52

    Sounds like someone needs a timeout in Hawaii for about 2 weeks. Barry needs some fresh air and junk food to brighten his mood. Poor Baby Barry!

  • Oldpuppymax

    And it’s because he fully expects republicans to act like the spineless, limp-wristed RINOs so many are. It’s the same crew whose propensity to “bend over and declare bipartisanship” cost the party the congress on 2006 and put an America hating Marxist in the White House 2 years later. My guess is too many republicans are unaware of the fact that they are in power on a trial basis only. Actual Americans didn’t vote FOR them, we voted AGAINST the radical fringe leftists-in-charge. And if these butt-kissing “moderates” who represent the party elites do not stand up and do battle, they will be thrown out in greater numbers than they were just elected.

  • Larkin

    Having a president who is both a wus and a poser, and who is severely challenged veracity-wise cannot possibly be helpful to the long term interests of this country.

  • BillyBobHasHadEnuff

    Me thinks this will end badly for ALL Americans.

  • Chisum

    Ron @ #1,

    First you call Jim a liar, now a racist.

    And yet you haven’t been banned.

    How will you be able to continue your victim meme?


  • Warthog

    I wonder how he will change his tune when he meets the Tea-party Republicans coming in this January? What about the Republican presidental candidates/wannabees who will be sniping at him for the next two years on whatever he does? He’s never had to really campaign on substance and the Media fluffed him up for all of 2008. What will he do now that he actually has to produce?

    I will now use my psychic powers to predict… he’ll play the race card.

    (I know, I know, that’s a radical leap but I stand by it…)

  • Rock

    “And I think the American people will be on my side on a whole bunch of these fights”

    And there in is the problem, in Obama’s eyes ACORN and union members are Americans, any who oppose his policies are terrorist and the enemy, and as such not Americans. Makes it easy for him, but disastrous for the nation.

  • Mark

    This dickhead talks the talk but would hiss himself in a real fight. What is it with politfaggots that makes the “fight” analogy so unavoidable? These clowns couldn’t fight their way out of Jr. highschool.

  • Rachelle

    He can’t give a speech without lying. The national media owes the country a huge apology for peddling this fake to us.

  • Hmmmm.

    At this point I’d really prefer if he just spends the next 2 years partying it up. Sure it’ll cost hundreds of millions keeping this guy in wagyu beef and Russian caviar but the cost is irrelevant compared to the damage he keeps on doing when he tries his hand at anything but partying.

    Frankly the only competence Obama has shown is in being incompetent. A zen master of utter futility.

  • Ruebacca

    The spirit of Lee Harvey Oswald now has taken over the Democratic party. ie red street punks.

  • kansas

    By fight, he means flapping his yap. He can’t even do that without running away and leaving Bill Clinton to yap for him.

  • bigkahuna

    I am sure he is itching….Its what happens when you sleep with that horse; Seabisuit

    Well let Nancy and Harry scratch your itch you weasel because youre going to itch for 2 years

  • dunce

    Many lawyers run ads where they are soliciting clients with the phrase “we will fight for you” so appparently the zero learned something in law school. Had he wanted to learn something about leadership and fighting he should have gone to west point. Now we have a leader with no leadership skills or aims that the people have called for. His guide book for tactics and strategy is alinskys rules for radicals. He never noticed that americans are not radical people or does not care because his training is that those who do not share his views are ignorant bitter people clinging to bibles and guns.

  • TXPatriot

    Wait. I thought the Dems wanted bi-partisanship. Isn’t that what they whined about for eight years under Bush?

    Oh. I get it. Bi-partisanship is when the Republicans do whatever the Dems want. Capitulation is when the Dems agree to do something the Republicans want.

    Got. It.

  • tarpon

    And where will he get the money … LOL

  • Noah

    How funny, we’re itching for a fight with him too. I figure the biggest fight will be getting him and lardbutt out of the White House. I think we maybe looking at a siege when the time comes.

  • Billy Jack

    I am going to get me big brother Bill. You wait. He’ll take care of this for me. You watch.

    Glad you picked up on that RON.
    Obama IS a racist.

  • Old Fan

    It isn’t quite Chicago style Mr. Hoft, it is the ugly, juvenile, self serving, corrupt Democratic Party mantra.

    They simply have no clue, and leave a disaster in every thing they touch.

    Look at CA, LA, MI, NJ, NY, etc., etc.

    This is a truly dysfunctional Political Party movement, greatly enabled by popular fashion pushed via the Media Establishments for years, surviving on demeaning other perceived opponents.

    But then we sometimes foolishly enable their folly, with terrible decisions like Delaware.

    Even the foolish reactionary mindset after 2004, crushed Our best interests in Washington, greatly aiding the disastrous Pelosi, Reid, Obama, etc.

    We have to do better, or we will see more and more folly, and it will be far too late to fix the mess.

    To the Dems “bipartisanship” means that the Republicans do whatever it is the Dems dictate. Thus the “bipartisan” stimulus where the Republicans were allowed exactly zero input.

  • retired military

    Obama “I’m itching for a fight…. as long as I dont keep Michelle waiting”

  • Adirondack Patriot

    Obama talks tough like a 9th grade cheerleader for a last place high school basketball team.

    In reality, he’s a sissy.

  • KR

    All he is capable of is flapping his yapper. Barry can’t even hold his own with the WH press and Bill Clinton.
    We’ve said it a million times: empty suit.

    BTW, the American people have spoken on Nov. 2nd.
    Issa, subpeonas,…
    Stock up on Pampers, barry, as you say, “You ain’t seen nothing yet”.

  • martha

    He’s full of crap. (so what else is new?) If he’s so itching for a fight with the Republicans why does’nt he do it now? Why wait 2 years down the road? He has the oppurtunity now and he’s letting Bill Clinton fight his battles(which seem to be with his own party BTW)

  • squeaky

    the guy who has others do his dirty work is itching for a fight?

  • Bill H

    Itching for a fight?
    Slapping and pulling hair maybe.

  • gary gulrud

    Here’s reversion to the rich Honolulu street kid, spittin’ like he’ll scratch your eyes out when he’s as lonely as the homeless he runs with.

    Sad, really, if we weren’t Amerikkka the pissed on.

  • Just_Saying

    Oh, yeah. Clearly, his Christianity is showing through. All this evidence is overwhelming, eh?
    (Like, am I my brother’s keeper — after I murder him??)

  • Patman

    He’ll lose the fight. And the media will portray him as a warrior for America, fighting the evil party of NO.

    My gut tells me this…

  • Punish our enemies?…”yes we can”….until you and everyone plotting in the shadows behind you are gone.

  • averagemelon

    Barry ought to be careful about what he wishes for. So much for the idea that he will “move to the center” like so many Blue Dogs thought he would.
    GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE DARK PLACE. This man has no intention of working for ANYBODY but himself and his mind is split down the center. Reality is the hammer driving the wedge further. This guy’s gonna melt in front of the world.

  • Bring it on. As far as I’m concerned it’s an opportunity to educate the public on the basic governing principle “broad base, low rates – and don’t forget to keep it simple, stupid.”
    “Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive”

  • Sandy

    Martha I totally agree. There’s something between capitulation and all out war. How about Obama working with Republicans to do what’s best for the American people?

  • Practical Jane

    I thought he said “Itching for a Fix”.

  • RedBeard

    On a strictly man-to-man level, the only thing truly thuggish about our Thug-in-Chief is his big mouth, making him about as threatening as PeeWee Herman.

    Oh, he’s dangerous all right, but only when his leftie congressional bodyguards are there to back his play. And they are not very dependable at the moment.

    Whining, spoiled, narcissistic man-child who can’t help throwing tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. He’s pathetic, and the rest of the world knows it. There is the true danger.

  • Ron commented:

    I don’t know bout dat. Is “Union Thug” racist? Is “Commie Party Thug” racist?

  • Andreas K.

    Well Barry, bring it on. You will see that the majority of the Americans, those hard-working people who pay the taxes that finance you and your ilk, are more than ready to pick up the pitchforks and storm the White House.

  • Redwine

    That b*stard has been fighting us real Americans for years. I pray daily that this Islamo-Marxist thug will be impeached. The sooner, the better.

    impeachment is a possibility as soon as Jan 21st comes.
    It would behove the Democrat party to throw Obama overboard to save thier
    poor reputation yet nothing really changes. First black president impeached. WOW two firsts for the nobel prize winner.
    powder is dry. Obamacare struck down as unconstitutional.

  • ar05075

    What a pathetic liar.

  • aprilnovember811

    Exactly what is racist about it? Now this is racist.

  • VeryConcerned

    Pathetic he is. Lip must have healed, needs to be lib slapped again to remedy that.

  • Rhonda

    and our guy will probably cry. This is exactly why its so HARD to be a Republican.

  • Fionnagh

    And the “gravitas” required for this nation’s presidency drops yet another notch lower. And I don’t think we’re anywhere near bottom yet…

  • sounds like some more of that teddy kennedy bipartianship that democrats love so much.

  • Bring it on OB you and your girlie britches…..maybe you can bring Bill Clinton with you on this one too.

  • Iconoclast

    That’s an itch I’d love to scratch. I’d not even complain if wookie woman allowed him to choose which purse he’d carry.

    That fits nicely with the Poltiico story today:

    “Just as I suspect the Republican Party may fight to end the middle-class tax cuts that I’ve championed and that they’ve opposed.”

    What an effin’ liar.

    It’s difficult to relate how much I despise that execrable person.

  • nelli

    Boehner is waiting for an invite to play golf with Obama, but apparently the One isn’t itching for that particular fight.

  • I thought he is itching to watch Fox.
