Winning…Barack Obama Reminds Us Why We Should NEVER Take Barack Obama For Granted

You won’t believe this.


President Obama, while addressing some 500 members of the Democratic National Committee’s national finance committee and national advisory board (in other words, big money donors), took them on a little trip down memory lane.
The Washington Post reported:

Working to invigorate one of his most important constituencies, President Barack Obama urged major Democratic donors Wednesday to hang on to the enthusiasm they felt during his first run for the White House as his 2012 re-election campaign approaches.

“The first time around it’s like lightning in a bottle. There’s something special about it, because you’re defying the odds. And as time passes, you start taking it for granted that a guy named Barack Hussein Obama is president of the United States,” Obama said. “But we should never take it for granted.”

“I hope that all of you still feel that sense of excitement and that sense of possibility, because we still have so much more to do.


The president also tried out his new theme of nonpartisan compromise and coming together, a change from the partisan attacks he regularly lobbed at Republicans prior to the November midterm elections in which Democrats lost control of the House. Now Obama must work with Republicans if he wants to get anything done, from passing a budget to legislating in any arena.

“I know that sometimes people may get frustrated and think, you know what, Obama is being too nice and we need to get in there and take it to them. And there will be times where that’s important,” the president said, adding that his own wife sometimes had to turn away from the spectacle of political brawling.

But he added: “As important as our political labels are — Democrat and Republican — as many tough fights as we’re going to have, part of what made 2008 special is we brought the country together.”

Even as Obama said more remained to be done, he asserted that he’d delivered on his campaign pledge from 2008. “The promise that we made to the American people has been kept, that we have delivered on change that we can believe in.”

Oh yes, the Great Uniter has definitely brought change we can believe in!

Count your blessings, folks. We are in the presence of Greatness.  Just ask him.

    Hey Michelle, it is what you signed up for. Did you think it would be all boob belts and Mao ornaments?

    I wish the balance in my checking account was as big as this guys’ ego.

    I would never work another day in my life. Just sitting on the Texas coast drinking margaritas with Jimmy Buffet watching the sunset.

    I have to turn away from the spectacle of either one of them. Seriously. Can’t stand looking at ’em. Specially if I’m eight or ten hours either side of food.

    Sounds like desperation to me: pleeeeeeease “get fired up” again, just like in ’08. Waaaaah!! If you liked our slogan then, imagine how great it will be recycled for ’12: we have delivered change we can believe in. See what we did there, said we delivered “change we can believe in.” Fired up yet? How about this one, I brought the country together! Don’t believe your lying eyes and the deep chasms between the left and right, rich and poor, blacks and whites, Latin Americans and whites . . . none of that matters. Here’s some koolaid. See?! I brought the country together. See it now? You fired up yet?

    Hmph, desperation and lies with a sprinkle of more desperation and lies. Yep, that’s BO in a nutshell.

    27 months of Hope and Change:

    An economy in shambles.
    A foreign policy in tatters.
    The Democrat Party broken, having lost 700+ seats.
    The crown jewel of his presidency declared unconstitutional with over half the states suing to get out.
    Gas, food, clothing prices skyrocketing.
    Two endless wars, Afghanistan now with a record death toll.
    The Middle East in turmoil and the President throws a Motown concert with his corporate millionaire Democrat pals.
    Declares his loyalty to the unions versus the American taxpayer.
    Imminent possible nuclear catastrophe.
    Now he’s off to Brazil to hand Soros-dominated Petrobas a permit for an oil rig. Something the US is not allowed to have.

    You know, it’s can’t be good to have Barack Obama talking about Barack Obama in third person. There’s got to be some sort of mental disorder in there….

    He’s either stupid or delusional.

    He has to hate this country. Why else would he inflict so much damage on it?
