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.

  • 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.

  • Gort

    The Obamas have told Americans they need to cut back on vacations, business travel and spending to deal with the ongoing economic crisis. Yet the Obamas themselves have shown no sign of sacrificing anything. Michelle wears clothes, shoes and accessories that cost thousands of dollars and lives a jet set lifestyle. Barack has spent over 300 hours—the equivalent of seven-and-a-half 40 hour work weeks—playing 61 rounds of golf since becoming president two years ago. In just the past few weeks, Barrack Obama has hosted parties at the White House for Motown and pro basketball, attended parties with the press and has hosted several Democrat fundraisers in D.C. and around the country. All while allies and critics alike have complained about the lack of leadership by Obama on pressing national and foreign issues.

  • Big L

    That is right, what shibumi said. There is something like a crack-pottery when someone who has done nothing really, od competence at ajob talks in 3rd person. This guys’s brain is toast due to drug use and anger. He admits the drugs and the anger in his book.

    On another blog the poster said that the Japanese were offered all the power units and the generators and equipment to get the water started a few days ago. But there was a catch.The
    Obamsters required a COMMITTMENT from the Japanese to never re-open the Fukishima installation again, the whole thing.
    The Japanese said no, and the USN said “C’ya”. And that is why we are not helping the Japanese at all.
    >anyone else hear this?

  • Chisum

    Hmmm, I wonder why Gingrich is calling BO the “Spectator-in-Chief”?

  • Redwine

    Wow. This is proof positive that those recreational drugs he took completely messed up his head. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to find that he never gave them up. I’ve hoping that at least one secret service agent will step forward.

  • Guy in Ohio

    People said a lot of nasty and negative things about George Bush, but I don’t ever recall anyone saying that he made them want to vomit….

    Obama makes me want to vomit.

  • Guy in Ohio

    Gort, don’t you understand? Barry and Michelle are not only allowed, but expected to live it up and party, because we owe it to them….

    Evil white America has oppressed and held the black man down for years, and now that the “we won, let’s spread the wealth around” Obamas are in the White House, no party is too big, and no expense is too excessive. What they’re doing is delivering a well-deserved “in your face” to white America. Not only will the partying continue throughout his Presidency, but a large portion of the legislation being rammed through is loaded with programs and laws to ensure that the paybacks continue for years to come. He’s the most successful President … ever …

    “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.”

    We brought together the beaters and those who were beaten on.

    We brought together Republican HQ owners and Democrats who like to vandalize and firebomb and shoot up Republican HQs!

    We brought together New Black Panthers, to kill some Crackas and Dey Babies.

    We brought together the Federal Government and American Industry!

    We brought together the U.S.A. and Castro, Putin, Khameini, and Ahmadhinijad!

    What’s not to like?


  • Taqiyy.

    And that, my friends, was the most links I’ve ever put in a post.

    I aspire to bg-dom. It’ll never happen.

  • Sparky

    Obama is on course to bring America to its knees. I wonder if he is orchestrating this himself, or is there a person or group in the background pulling his strings.

    His behavior is so bizarre!

  • Mockingbird

    Barack Obama is the head guy of those who eat their own product, and pronouce it good.

  • grizzlybare

    I hope he continues to fly around in ever-decreasing circles….until he flies up his own a**hole and disappears.

    He no doubt loves the smell of his own farts.

    This has been planned for a long, long, LONG time.

    If Obama wasn’t actually conceived for this role, then it was decided within the first 6 months of his life, that he would be “their man”.

    Communism plans long-term….and they have tenacity in that regard.

    “Did Communism Fake it’s own Death in 1991?” Good read, very apropos.

    Then research Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist who helped to raise Obama, and their revolutionary commnuist friends in Hawaii.

    This man was destined to be president… he was telling schoolkids that he would be when he was 6. Because he was told that he would be since he was an infant.

    Yes, his goal — since his goals are in line with Soviet Russia, circa 1968 — is to destroy America. It’s quite historic, if you think about it. Us conservatives still, to this day, tell one lie to ourselves: “Reagan and the USA, they beat communism. No. Communism infiltrated and took the reins while we kept repeating to ourselves that grandiose and soothing lie. And now they rule almost every facet of American life, from Academia, to Hollywood, to Television News, to Newspapers, and even to our very Churches.

    We’re in for a strange, sad, horrific time.

    Enemy, enemy I must eliminate my Enemy

    Your people, enemy

    What are you, enemy
    Though a created enemy
    Terminate the, enemy
    Eradicate the hated enemy
    I am an enemy
    My very greatest enemy

    You try to tell me that you love life
    Then find another way to kill life

    Wanting, love life
    Needing, kill life

    And as time passes… please adjust the teleprompter. Thanks! You start taking it for granted that a guy named Barack Hussein Obama is president of the 57 States. But we should never take it for granted because a Impeachment Proceeding could come at any time!

    You should be grateful that under my steward ship the economy is in the toilet, unemployment is through the roof, Fannie Mae is screwed along with home owners, and gas price are skyrocketing! No, I don’t pay for the gas bill of my gas guzzling limousine or my Jumbo Jet. The Taxpayers do!

    You should be grateful that I have spent the Taxpayers money on useless things such as 0bamcare, 0bamacare waivers and Axelrod’s political cronies. You should be grateful a guy name Barack Hussein Obama cups his hands over his crotch every time the pledge of allegiance is read. And, I refuse to say One Nation Under God… unless it’s that god is Allah.

    You should be grateful for Cash 4 Clunkers and Cash for my Cronies. I have swindled the banks and the auto companies into receivership. I have placed fisting sex deviants in your school system and taken away your kid’s choice of food!

    But, we still have so much more to do! We must stop all drilling for oil anywhere. Gas prices must go higher! We must allow the entire Middle East to go up in flames.

    We must lose the war in Afghanistan. We must demoralize the Troops. We must heap more taxes on the Taxpayer. We must spend until the dollar is worth one Mexican Peso! But, most importantly we must re-elect Barack 0bama!

    The promise I made to Kos has been kept! I have delivered on Marxists change that we can believe in!

    My limousine is running and Barney Frank wants to play screw the Taxpayer up the tail pipe. He will play the Taxpayer. I have my KY jelly how about you? Good Night.

    F*** you Obama. You and your degenerate Napalitano listed me as an enemy. I am an enemy because I’m a vetran, I belive in the founders principles, a constitional republic for good and the bad that comes with it. I am an enemy because I refuse to call GENOCIDE a choice, I refuse to bow down to leftist filth and PC. Your right, I am the enemy to ALL Democrats and therefore YOU and all Dems are my enemy. Remember I and others who may think as I do didn’t draw the line in the sand, YOU did. You labeled me an enemy, therefore I am. So Obama yuk it up , keep in mind that you may have a lot of enemies in the good old USA. Tell your Marxist filth like Van Jones and Trumka to .. BRING IT BITCH.

    Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken
    In, sprinkled with ashes,
    Pop switches channels, takes another
    Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks
    What to do with me, a green young man
    Who fails to consider the
    Flim and flam of the world, since
    Things have been easy for me;
    I stare hard at his face, a stare
    That deflects off his brow;
    I’m sure he’s unaware of his
    Dark, watery eyes, that
    Glance in different directions,
    And his slow, unwelcome twitches,
    Fail to pass.
    I listen, nod,
    Listen, open, till I cling to his pale,
    Beige T-shirt, yelling,
    Yelling in his ears, that hang
    With heavy lobes, but he’s still telling
    His joke, so I ask why
    He’s so unhappy, to which he replies…
    But I don’t care anymore, cause
    He took too damn long, and from
    Under my seat, I pull out the
    Mirror I’ve been saving; I’m laughing,
    Laughing loud, the blood rushing from his face
    To mine, as he grows small,
    A spot in my brain, something
    That may be squeezed out, like a
    Watermelon seed between
    Two fingers.
    Pop takes another shot, neat,
    Points out the same amber
    Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine, and
    Makes me smell his smell, coming
    From me; he switches channels, recites an old poem
    He wrote before his mother died,
    Stands, shouts, and asks
    For a hug, as I shink, my
    Arms barely reaching around
    His thick, oily neck, and his broad back; ‘cause
    I see my face, framed within
    Pop’s black-framed glasses
    And know he’s laughing too.

  • #34 your right. when the wall came down in berlin and everyone was celebrating the defeat of communism the communists didn’t vanish from the face of the earth. this enable them to do their dirty work without anyone paying any attention to them. the infiltrated our institutions and took control of many of them, the democratic party i.e. then they got bill clinton in the white house and have had free rein prety much ever since.

    Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    Definition: Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. They believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

    Narcissistic personality disorder symptoms may include:

    Believing that you’re better than others
    Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
    Exaggerating your achievements or talents
    Expecting constant praise and admiration
    Believing that you’re special
    Failing to recognize other people’s emotions and feelings
    Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
    Taking advantage of others
    Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
    Being jealous of others
    Believing that others are jealous of you
    Setting unrealistic goals
    Being easily hurt and rejected
    Having a fragile self-esteem
    Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional

    Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence or strong self-esteem, it’s not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence and self-esteem into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal. In contrast, people who have healthy confidence and self-esteem don’t value themselves more than they value others.

    When you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious. You often monopolize conversations. You may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior. You may have a sense of entitlement. And when you don’t receive the special treatment to which you feel entitled, you may become very impatient or angry. You may also seek out others you think have the same special talents, power and qualities — people you see as equals. You may insist on having “the best” of everything — the best car, athletic club, medical care or social circles, for instance.

    as i scrolled down from the top of this page, i was wondering where’s “LimoLibsStink” cos i needed some light humour to comfort me from all the madness of the upside down world created by leftists and jihadhists (and liberals trying to be smarter than they are). Happy to find that he is still around. Your comments always made me laugh although the reality is no laughing matter. Can’t wait for the nightmare to end and never to be repeated again ever.
