One would think that the community organizer-in-chief would recognize grassroots messaging when he sees it, but for this fool, he appears to believe that the GOP is astroturfing the tea party message. And yes America, you are too stupid to understand what he is saying, so he had to do a speech in Tampa after the SOTU, and again today his face was plastered all over the TV regurgitating the same speech just one more time while he attacked the GOP again.
Facts are facts, and math is math. Every time he attacks the GOP for not cooperating, the American People for being stupid, or The Supreme Court for displeasing him, please keep in mind his party has control. Period. The Democratic Party has not been able to get anything done besides spending us into a blackhole because their own members do not like some of their progressive and un-Constitutional policies. This has nothing to do with the GOP who, up until Scott Brown is seated, have been spitting in the wind when it comes to Bambi’s proposals. It appears that Bambi is trying a very creative chess move with the GOP. Help me and get voted out, don’t help me and get voted out. It is all still smoke and mirrors because Barack Obama does not need the GOP to achieve his agenda even with Scott Brown seated. Reconciliation anyone?
The ‘deficit of trust’ has been around since JFK’s and Bobby’s assassinations. The only difference now is that more Americans do not trust their government anymore, and looking back at the last few years, I have this sinking feeling that we are being played yet again. I will have to background process this for a bit.
BALTIMORE — President Barack Obama on Friday accused Republicans of portraying health care reform as a “Bolshevik plot” and telling their constituents that he’s “doing all kinds of crazy stuff that’s going to destroy America.”
Speaking to House Republicans at their annual policy retreat here, Obama said that over-the-top GOP attacks on him and his agenda have made it virtually impossible for Republicans to address the nation’s problems in a bipartisan way.
“What happens is that you guys don’t have a lot of room to negotiate with me,” Obama said, silencing the smattering of Republicans who had applauded when he said “Bolshevik plot.” “The fact of the matter is, many of you, if you voted with the administration on something, are politically vulnerable with your own base, with your own party because what you’ve been telling your constituents is, ‘This guy’s doing all kinds of crazy stuff that’s going to destroy America.’ ”
Obama’s comments came in the midst of an extraordinary back-and-forth with Republican House members – a scene straight out of the House of Commons that played out live on cable TV.
But he also criticized the Republicans for reflexively opposing his policies – even when, he said, they were in line with GOP principles. And the encounter got progressively more raucous from there
Obama urged Republicans to come to the table and work with him on policy compromises, saying Americans “didn’t send us to Washington to fight each other in some political steel cage match.”

Why the need for such strong rhetoric?
