Obama: Most People Would Acknowledge That I’ve Tried Real Hard (Video)


He’s tried hard at golf – 100 rounds.

Barack Obama told an Ohio television station, “Most people would acknowledge that I’ve tried real hard.”

Real Clear Politics reported:

“I suspect that most people in Cincinnati would acknowledge that I’ve tried real hard, and we haven’t gotten the Republicans to engage on a whole range of issues that, I wish had happened,” Obama said in an interview with WLWT-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio.

“Part of what I think needs to happen in this election is the voters once again have to send a message, ‘We want common sense ideas. We don’t folks who are just saying no to everything. Even stuff, traditionally [they] were in favor of,” Obama said.

Well, he has tried real hard at spending your money. He’s tried real hard at pushing a far left socialist agenda. He’s tried real hard at fundamentally changing America. You’ve got to give him that.

    I despise all Obama and the progressives stand for. But I do admire their grit. Obama and the Ds will walk into a buzz saw for their beliefs. Obamacare wiped out the Democratic House and, I hope, will wipe out Obama. But the Dems forge ahead.

    Has anyone ever noticed that he always speaks in the abstract? “I’ve tried real hard”, … at what? “Forward” … which direction? “Change” … what change, to what, from what? “Hope” …for what? Never defining where he’s headed or his true intentions. His minions just assume his honorable intent, benevolence and infallibility…

  • Bill Mitchell

    If you want a laugh ask a liberal if Obama is responsible for the bad economy and he will explain to you that no, the President actually has little control over the economy. Then ask them who IS to blame for the bad economy and without blinking they will say, “Bush”.

    If you don’t see the irony there you must be a liberal :).

    Hint*: Bush was a President.

  • Multitude

    Barack, when your first declaration in office was “We won. You lost. Deal with it.” and you proceeded to reject any suggestions or participation with the Republicans but instead crammed radically liberal legislation down their throats and laughed at their helplessness, don’t come back whining that they didn’t partner with you.

    The person who owns all the blame is right there in the mirror. And you know what? The intelligent citizens noticed this. We saw your rejection of bipartisanship. We observed your prancing, mocking and taunting. “I won! My way or the highway…SUCKERS!”. We got to learn about the benchwarmer on the team who was Michael Jordan in his head and hogged the ball when the coach put him in the game out of pity.

    You’re a loser Barack. Even if you changed your narcissistic ways and decided to become a team player, we don’t want you on our team. Honestly, you just don’t have anything of value to America as we try to fix what Mr. Muckup Obama damaged or destroyed.

  • Roger Doctor

    “We don’t folks who are just saying no to everything.”

    Let’s see, Obama’s increased the national debt by 50%, to $16 trillion, in less than four years and has given us a multi-trillion $ healthcare plan that will cover illegal aliens. UUhhh, yes Obama, I think we do want folks who will say no to everything.

  • gwhh

    And there in it purest form is a liberal in one sentence. Trying is all that matter-NOT RESULTS. And when liberals fail its someone else fault. Not because our ideas, are abd or DONT work or have been proven again and again they don’t work! All that matter is that we trid to do good.

    3. Give amnesty to illegals
    4. Get guns into the hands of drug dealing murders to get gun control passed
    5. Golf daily
    6. concert weekly
    7. demonize the evil rich
    8. spend us into oblivion
    9. Pay off his union thug buddies in so many ways
    10 Flush green money down green toilets that send that cash to his campaign
    11.Raise the cost of gas and electricity so solar and wind can be only 3 times more expensive
    12. Kill 10’s of thousands of oil, gas and coal jobs for 100’s of green jobs and counting.
    13. Bow to every dictator and apologize to scum
    14. abort more kids
    15. Divide this counbtry as it has not been since the 60’s
    16 Ruin every sports team he picks chances at winning the big one.
    17. Steal a car company and give it to unions and lose $38 billion or more and call that a success
    18. Turn mud puddles into navigable waterways under EPA control
    19 hire a bunch of radical jackoffs who couldnt run a lemonade stand
    20. Turn a 2700 page bill that nobody read into a 20,000 page bill nobody read…. and counting.
    21. Convince morons 80,000 jobs and 9% unemployed is going right direction but when Bush had 300,000 and 5.6% it was horrible

    22. Ignore laws on the books and pass others by presidential mandate
    23. Sue more states for enforcing laws and curbing voter fraud
    24. Have more hollywood /wallstreet fundraisers and then call the rich eveil and say Romney’s out of touch.
    25. working hard pushing his fat @ass wife around…

  • Sparky

    What people forget is that Obama was elected by 51% of those who voted. And, these people will vote for him again, considering how politically far Left America has swung.

    Conservatives/Tea Party members are being drowned out by the Socialist message. Romney couldn’t inspire a sloth to move, never mind getting Conservative votes out to the ballot box.

    Obama is simply doing what he does, because he CAN! It is the responsibility of the people to rise up against him before it is too late.

    I wonder when I will see Conservatives actually stand in defiance of this dangerous man. I am hoping it is before November.

  • Pingback: Obama: Most People Would Acknowledge That I’ve Tried Real Hard|PolitifreakPolitifreak()

  • It is not a matter of trying. Obama is a leftist ideologue with no real grasp of free market economics. That is the problem.

    Maybe he should do less campaigning and stay around Washington.

    FDR tried hard also but he surrounded himself with idiots. FDR’s so called Brain Trust, the people who were supposed to know what should be done when the economy goes south, had the wrong philosophy of government. Consequently the economy stayed in the doldrums for years.

    History repeats itself.

  • Multitude

    Roger Doctor, #18 you know the sad thing is that Republicans actually did work with Barack out of the gate. Gracious losers like John McCain reminded us that “elections have consequences. We lost and so we have to support the Presidents proposals, stimulus, court appointments, nominations, etc.”

    And by the way, why is Barry saying this immediately following the Republicans joining the Democrats to pass the transportation stimulus spending extension act that the President demanded and just signed? What Republicans is he talking about not “engaging” and what exactly does he mean by “engagement”?

  • Rose

    He’s tried my patience real hard.

    He’s tried real hard to find the limit of America’s tolerance for Criminal Conspiracy for Treasonous citizens to harbor a foreign agent and imposter in a fraudulent occupation of an American Political Elected Office.

    He’s tried bloody hard to destroy this nation and all her allies, too.

  • Rose

    #22 July 7, 2012 at 9:44 am

    At least that is what we suppose. We don’t much care, since the GOP shoved McCain down our throat by opening GOP Primaries at the front of the season, and let 20 of the GOP VOTE be by CROSSOVER DIMS who all voted 100% for McCain that the GOP knew we could not stand, and who – if possible – would be an even WORSE President than Obama – and yes, Virginia, WORSE is much possible – and McCain is VERY capable of managing that.

    Most people who love America are about to conclude that there is only one solution if we really want to save America at all, and we don’t much think anyone much cares about that, either. The blood-letting of the Feds seems in some ways to have reached far beyond the tipping point. Certainly only a wide array of massive Miracles can do anything to save her, now.

    Massive self-constraint during too many genuine calls on our Fight or Flight Adrenalin Rushes have worked to create a chronic state of Battle Fatigue level exhaustion.

    Nothing like a nation beating itself to death FOR the Enemy.

  • Multitude

    Ohme: it’s not “folks,” its “Volks.” Obama does have some lingering speech impediments that pop up when he’s trying to act in one of his many personas he employs to conceal his nature (blank slate, remember?).

    Volks is a language cue that we are encountering the populist-fascist-progressive Obama persona. I believe it’s a fusion of FDR, Teddy Roosevelt and Wilson but occasionally we get leakage and a little but of the “Angry Joe” Stalin or the finger waving, corner of the eye evil sneer of the post-Weimar paranoid, searching out the audience to find disbelievers who in a perfect world would be dragged off and beaten into becoming Believers in Hopenchangen.

    There is a whole memetic package behind Obama’s Volks: literally translated as People, Volks contains a whole package of collectivism and the commune. Electric Voltswagens as the peoples green car, mass rail transportation, building of highways, autobahns and other transportation mass projects. People’s medicine, given to the Volks by Papa Obama himself (“My bill. I did it.”). Look at the eye and body language as he employs the Volks language and symbols, the vast scanning of the audience, the pregnant pause that often follows its utterance as he awaits a collective acknowledgement in unquestioning unison as if his mind directed the bodies of the masses of the Volks.

    These are remarkable pathologies for the narcissist leader.

    So we should understand that Obama’s tried his best. No BO the job of President is to feel the people’s pain not your own. If the job is so hard Obama shouldn’t run again — but then he would miss the perks too much.

    “Part of what I think needs to happen in this election is the voters once again have to send a message, ‘We want common sense ideas. We don’t folks who are just saying no to everything. Even stuff, traditionally [they] were in favor of,” Obama said.

    Voters will send a message this year — no more amateurs please.

  • sandy

    Even if Obamacare goes into effect it will not last because the underpinnings are not there to make this a Healthcare System. The taxes are in place but there are not enough doctors, nurses or hospitals to care for another 20 million people. It will fall of its own weight.

  • Patty

    “Common sense” and how many times he has said those two words.

    ‘We want common sense ideas” Obama.

    Senator Obama has tried to straddle the fence on many of these issues as he has sought to appeal to voters across the spectrum. He often says he wants to find “common ground” between both sides and is seeking “common-sense solutions.”

    Favors abortion rights

    Naral Pro-Choice America rates him at 100 percent and the National Right to Life Committee rates him at zero.

    Supports a ban on the medical procedure critics call partial-birth abortion only if it allows exceptions to protect the mother’s health

    Opposes gay marriage but also opposes a federal constitutional amendment to ban it, as well as a California effort to ban it; supports civil unions
    Supports gay adoptions

    Gun Control
    Supports some restrictions on gun ownership

    This was his campaign message in 2008


    Gun Control Obama Will Sign U.N. Gun Control Treaty on July 27—If He’s Stupid

    Gays, well, support gays and marriage

    Abortions rack Obama’s wife, Michelle, sent a fund-raising letter with the “alarming news” that “right-wing politicians” had passed a law stopping doctors from stabbing half-born babies in the neck with scissors, suctioning out their brains and crushing their skulls.

    Michelle called partial-birth abortion “a legitimate medical procedure,”

    Well common sense tells me that Obama’s views on it are so predicable. You see, you cannot speak to Obama because if you do it isn’t going to get you anywhere. The devil is in the details.

He sounds like a kid trying to explain to his mother why he failed his Algebra 1 course: ” I tried hard. I meant well.” Those excuses may work for a kid, but for a pResident of the United States? He created this disaster. He owns it. His intentional failure to prioritize and failed economic policies have brought this Country to its knees. To me, there is nothing more disgusting than a grown man feigning self pity to deflect responsibility…LOSER.

    They keep playing a video where Obama says to Stephanopolis that its a penalty and not a tax on Obamacare. Obama then mentions Stephanopolis should look up the definition of a tax in Merriam’s dictionary. That mistake bugs me.

  • Patty

    Obama says that the Republicans are holding this nation back. Always with the Common Sense message. He has no Common Sense nor the ability to solve problems that face the Common Man. JOBS, NATIONAL SECURITY, HELPING AMERICAN INDUSTRY, AND MOST OF ALL CONDUCTING HIMSELF IN A PRESIDENTIAL MANNER.

    So, don’t talk to America about YOUR PROBLEMS with Republicans because no one can work with you. It is he who has no Common Sense.

    Doesn’t even tell America the truth and that was evident in his OBAMAROTAX health care plan. We are suppose to put our faith in his ideas for America with a 8.2% unemployment. Really?

  • Patty

    I’ll take Obama’s statement as an admission he’s given it his best shot. Now, we need to do something else. Here’s a list of things we need, which are actually a few minor adjustments based on our recent experiences:

    1. we need a banking system that fosters small, competitive mortgage lenders; Fannie and Freddie need to be broken down into several much smaller entities;

    2. the same is true of our health insurance system; An adjustment of the rules should make insurance portable and available across state lines. Families ought to be able to cover their young adults, particularly the unemployed.

    3. we need to adopt credible, rapid, auditable voting procedures, which we know how to do, and ditch the fancy, fragile, electronic monstrosities that are demonstrably vulnerable to fraud;

    4. we need right-to-work laws at the state level;

    5. we need to lower the drag of the Federal drain on our resources enough to stop our economy from cavitating.

  • Valerie

    To re-cap:

    Here’s some of the detail about why we got to this place. We have a sitting US President who is not terribly careful with the facts. We have a Congress that, while purporting to perform a Keynesian experiment, simply chose to enrich its supporters. It’s a different kind of experiment, but it shows quite plainly that poorly targeted government spending will not help the economy or job market.


    Rep. Paul Ryan is Chairman of the House Budget Committee. The rest of the members are listed here.


    I would suggest that now might be a good time to send a respectful, well-written letter pointing out that we now have real data showing that the massive increase in spending, which was intended to turn this economy around along the lines of the revival after WWII, has failed. Our economy is in fact responding more like the economy that led to the Great Depression. We have other precedents, namely the handling of the 1920 recession, and it is now time to try those remedies.

    Scam That Obama To Pay Utility Bills Making Rounds

    OSCEOLA — It’s a new scam, said the Better Business Bureau. President Barack Obama is not offering to pay your utility bills.

    In the scam, which recently hit Michiana, consumers are being contacted in person and through fliers, social media and text messages with claims that Obama is providing credits or applying payments to utility bills.

    People are then asked to provide their Social Security and bank routing numbers in order to receive the money. In exchange, they are given a phony bank routing number that they are told will pay their utility bills

    What greater message could the American People possibly have given Obama? Instead, he doubled down on his socialist agenda. The People did speak, they said block the Obama agenda.

    ‘President Obama may have a more serious problem for reelection in Ohio than Mitt Romney. A 70 something private investigator has her ducks all in a row and it looks impressive.

    Susan Daniels, filed suit on July 2 in the Geauga County, Ohio, Common Pleas Court demanding Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State, remove President Obama’s name from the ballot until the president can prove the legitimacy of his Social Security Number.

    Daniels has run thousands of SSNs for former clients; she knows her business and has documented every detail. She insists:

    Barack Obama has repeatedly, consistently, and with intent misrepresented himself by using a fraudulently obtained Social Security Number.

    Daniels has become a valid write-candidate for president, thus she is eligible to make the challenge, according to Ohio Law.

    Ms Daniels began her investigation in August of 2009. She has accessed a variety of proprietary databases, because of her Private Investigator’s licensure.

    It is public knowledge the 042 prefix on a SSN designates the state of Connecticut for registery. President Obama has been using a 042 SSN since 1986. Ms Daniels ran ten sequential numbers in alignment with the president’s number and found they were all issued between 1977 and 1979 in CT. The numbers flanking the president’s SSN indicate the President’s number was issued during March of 1977.

    In March of 1977, President Obama was 15-years old and living in Hawaii. There is no record of the President ever visiting Connecticut during this period of his life. To qualify for a SSN, an applicant must show up for a “mandatory in-person interview.” The president’s sister, Maya, has a legitimate Hawaii SSN, issued from the state of Hawaii.’…

    Sorry if this link has been posted already. Another look at BO:

    The ideological influences acting upon Barack Obama are multifarious. There is, however, an attitudinal quality that seems to be the common denominator linking those ideological underpinnings. The salient, definitive characteristic of the man and his presidency was crystalized for me when Congress cited his attorney general for contempt.

    “That’s it,” I thought: contempt. Never have we seen a president so full of naked contempt for any person or idea or policy that does not accord with his own vision, plans, and beliefs. Obama doesn’t just disagree with others; he holds them in contempt.

    “Tried hard,” is for losers. The fruits of our labor is the evidence of work. For Obama there is no evidence of work so he has to talk about it. If he had something to show for his time in office he would not have to say, “but I tried hard!”

    Obama has been as useful a tool as the Powers That Be – could have asked for.

    Media Refuses to Make Obama Pay Price For Lies

    And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

    Over the airwaves and on the stump, Obama is currently running around the country portraying his opponent Mitt Romney as an outsourcer. This is a proven lie.

    And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

    Obama told students that a bill to freeze student loan interest rates would save them $1,000 a year when it will only save them $87.

    And what have we heard from a media currently obsessed with fact-checking? Not a peep, not a sound, not a word.

  • i would agree he has been working very hard to wreck the country.

  • Limousine Barry

    I think most people would acknowledge that I’ve tried real hard to bankrupt America but the Republicans will not engage!

    I have tried Cash 4 Clunkers, Guns 4 Mexican Gangs, Cash 4 Cronies, Cash 4 votes, Scams 4 Donations, Lies 4 0bamaTax, Cash 4 0bamaTax Waivers and I still have not gotten the Republicans to get aboard. I suck!

    Most people would acknowledge that I have almost bankrupted America. I have killed million of jobs. I have killed 300 Mexicans. I have killed one or two boarder agents.

    I have handcuffed the troops with restrictive rules of engagement. I have tried to lose the war in Afghanistan without success.

    I have even gutted my own sanctions on Iran. Twenty countries can buy all the Iranian oil they want… and some of it may trickle into the US.

    I have completely ripped-off and ditched the Israel. I have taken the Jewish vote and Screwed them! I have flip-flop on Egypt.

    I have given Syria to the Russians. Libya is in the hands of 3rd world Islamic terrorists. I left the Middle East in a civil war. I have tried my best to wreck the world. I am almost there. But, I need four more years to complete the job.

    If you like the results of my three year wrecking spree send $3.00 to me before midnight!

    My Enormous bus is belching diesel fumes and David Axelrod has a new scam for my donors. This scam is based on a Ponzi scheme and lies. I have already told you too much. My campaign my may suck but when I wreck America it will suck worse. Good day.

  • Lefty

    Obama has been doing exactly what the ‘powers that be’ required of him…to make them richer and more powerful…and to continue the demise of the middle class.

    If Mitt Robbed-me gets into office…he will continue on this same path.

    I’ve got to believe that many of the posters here are simply ‘shils’ for the ‘powers that be’. OR – so full of hatred…they can’t see straight.

    No ‘logical’ person can actually believe there’ll be a significant difference between – Barak Obama and Mitt Romney.

    If Bernie Sanders was president – then you’d see a ‘real’ socialist

  • Aleena

    Lefty, Mitt Romney’s life is a open book. After three and a half years, much of Barack Obama’s life is in the shadows. Mitt Romney supports capitalism; Barack Obama thinks that the government has all the answers. None of the things Barack Obama has tried has worked. Barack Obama is working hard to make us a second rate nation. From all I have seen of Mitt Romney, he likes to achieve, to make things better. The two men couldn’t be more different.

    way too much to try and catch you up, but you can start here & here,
    also do some research of your own before making ill-informed comments
    about hatred and the like, that Alinsky tripe is so passe.. 🙄

    [Illinois: The first NP member heads to Congress, as Danny Davis wins an overwhelming 85% victory yesterday (he got a higher percentage of the vote in that district than the President). NP member and State Senate candidate Barack Obama won uncontested. Interestingly, it appears that the local Democratic machine is trying to distance itself from our folks. At a “Democratic Unity” march on Chicago’s West Side, a flyer invited community members to join with a host of local democratic candidates. The only two west-side Democrats not listed: NP members Danny Davis (U.S. House candidate) and Michael Chandler (Alderman and Ward Committeeman).]

    WaPo: It’s looking like Obama has nothing new to offer on jobs, economy

    How much damage did Friday’s jobs report — the third disappointment in a row — do to Barack Obama’s re-election effort? It might take some time for the answer to be fully known, but one measure might be the reaction in the media. The Washington Post news report of Obama’s response to the worst jobs quarter in two years explicitly wonders whether Obama can maintain the position that his policies are doing anything to help, and whether he has any new ideas to break the country out of this stagnation:

    Obama’s message on his two-day bus tour through Ohio and Pennsylvania has been twofold. First, he pointed to modest signs of progress in rebuilding the economy–the health of the auto industry is his principal case study across Ohio’s northern tier. At the same time, he warned that the medicine offered by Romney and the Republicans is exactly the wrong prescription.

    As he said here Friday morning, “We tried it, and didn’t work.”

    But it has become increasingly difficult for the president to argue that what he has tried is working well, or that he has something new to offer. Each month that the economy produces fewer jobs than are needed just to keep pace with population growth adds to the burden the president faces as the clock ticks toward November.

    The Post also noticed that Obama tried avoiding the subject, and hoped that voters would give him a pass on it:[…]


  • Valerie

    Ah, Patty, you beat me to it.

    It’s nice to know that the Washington Post hasn’t totally lost perspective yet.

    I miss GW Bush. I miss Clinton. I could almost miss Nixon after four years of Barack Obama!

    But not Carter. Barack Obama looks like Carter II to me, without having learned a damn thing in the intervening years from the horrible, horrible economic and political mistakes that Carter made.

    Stupid, stupid, Stupid, STUPID!

  • Lefty

    Try as I might…I can’t see anything socialist about Obama’s actions.
    Just more of the same – keeping TPTB (The Powers That Be) still
    – in firm control of the US.

    Thinking about those unnerving colors the Obamas wore on his victorious election night: mostly black with lots of red…It shocked alot of us.

    BO sends messages. I think it’s foolish to think he doesn’t.

    Ran across this just now – new to me. It’s Sunday, maybe give this some thought —

    The most important thing about this prophecy of the four horses is the identification of the form that the last world government will assume. In Rev 17:3 the beast representing the kingdom of the Antichrist is a “red” beast. This indicates that this last world government will be socialistic. Perhaps communism is not quite as dead as we have been led to believe!

    It is obvious that the economy of the Antichrist depicted in Revelations 13:15-18 is a socialistic economy. Every person’s economic activity will be controlled by a number without which he cannot buy or sell. Government controlled economy is socialism.

    Paul Blanshard contended that 3 international forces, communism, Catholicism, and capitalism, rule the world. Malachi Martin graphicly stated the exact same thing. The amazing thing is that the Bible prophesied concerning these 3 spirits 2,000 years ago.

    Right now the world is in great revolution and upheaval. People are questioning the validity of capitalism and communism. When the victor of the present struggle emerges, some form of socialism will rule the New World Order. Malachi Martin said he believed the winner for world control would be determined in the ’90s. I have to agree!





  • mcc

    Re #108 — In the first link, “capitalism” is labeled a selfish pursuit, leaving God somewhat out of the mix.

    I’ve long believed – and told others – that Capitalism is best when combined with the Christian heart. One then gives freely of his bounty by the Holy Spirit who moves within him, stirring him to generosity with his fellow man.

    There is, therefore, no need for the “State” to order him to share.

    Communism allows no such potential for goodness.

    Please, dear Lord, return our America to her founding.
