As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Warns GOP: “A Price to Pay” for Defying “the American People”

President Obama warned Republicans Friday that there will be “a price to pay” for defying the will of the American people, which apparently, He Himself embodies.

Obama’s l’état, c’est moi moment occurred during a Miami fundraiser for House Democrats, whom he is desperate to install as the majority in the House so he can revive his agenda, which has inconveniently been beached on the shoals of Republican opposition.

So he’s pushing the line that in defying The Leader, it must be that Republicans are defying America itself.

Obama centered on the cornerstone of his failed agenda, the immigration bill.

The only way we can continue to place pressure to get that bill done is by making sure that the other side — or at least that small faction on the other side — understands there’s a price to pay when you don’t act on the basis of the interests of the American people. And so that’s something that I hope we can still get done by the end of this year.

This is typical Obama. Conservatives – forget for a moment he’s supposed to be their president too – are just a faction of heartless bastards who hate the “American values” Obama thinks he represents.

What’s more, they have no principles, and are mainly trying to stick it to Obama:

And right now, it’s being held up. It’s being held up not because it’s not a good idea. The majority of the American people support it. It’s being held up because there’s a small faction in the other party that has decided we don’t want to do anything and our main goal is obstruction.

Obama then proclaims himself as above politics even as he practices its lowest arts:

And, by the way, if the Republicans decided to pass it — and nobody would be happier than me — even though it would be to their political advantage to do it, because ultimately I’ve run my last election.

Well, he hasn’t run his last election. He’s campaigning for House Democrats. He suggests he’s ready to put politics aside even as he hurls calumnies, shedding his responsibility as president to be at least a step out of the mud.

At a second fundraiser Friday, also in Miami, Obama spoke of “consequences” for not following “the wisdom and common sense and hard work of the American people,” which of course reflects his own wisdom and common sense. I hesitate to say hard work.

I will say that if you just looked objectively at what the Democratic Party and Democratic senators stand for right now, it’s a lot more aligned with what the American people believe and what they care about then what a small faction of the other party is trying to promote.

And I’m confident that there’s going to be an adjustment process where the Republican Party kind of moves back to reason and common sense.  But they’re only going to do it if our politics is reflected — or elections reflect that common sense.  And if they’re rewarded for cooperation and it — when they aren’t looking out for the interests of the American people, there are some consequences.  And that’s why elections matter.  That’s why they count.

I agree. Mr. President, we must conform to the wisdom and common sense of America. We have no choice but to oppose policies Americans oppose. Therefore, Republicans must pledge to work with you on repealing Obamacare by the end of the year.

    Has any other president threatened American citizens for not bending to his will?

  2. As Don Henley never sang:

    “Oh beautiful for spacious skies,
    But now those skies are threatening.
    We’re losing all we have to pay for the follies
    Of this snake oil salesman we elected king.”

  3. LOL no principles. After what Dems tried to do to George Bush you have this sort of thing coming. How’s that Cash for Clunkers legacy coming? Yeah not so good. You’ll be remembered as the never was President. Swallow that Obamacare whole Libs. You are good for nothing.

  4. Have we ever had a sitting president who lost all connection to reality? A president who lives in his own psychotic world of make believe where he can do no wrong and sees himself as our savior? Breitbart has an article on Preezy’s “sorry you feel that way” interview with F Chuck Todd. Todd came away from the interview with the notion that Preezy doesn’t believe he lied to the American people about his health insurance scam. That is delusional. Now Preezy is flitting around the country trying to create another crisis (i.e. amnesty for illegal aliens, executive orders allowing EPA to shut down power plants) and nobody is listening to him any more. He has lost the trust of the American people (with the exception of the true believers and the takers) and he will never get that back. Preezy is the epitome of a lame duck. Unfortunately, he still controls the reins of power in Washington, D.C. and can do a lot of damage to the country he despises for rejecting him. It’s going to be a long three years. I pray America survives it.

      • don’t fool yourself AFVet: there are still plenty of high-rollers willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for even a minute’s access to the president.

    • Almost ran my car up a tree yesterday – listening to that interview. Especially the last Q & A exchange:

      CPL: So finally, and just briefly, the President has mentioned that he feels badly and he’s working to fix these problems. What, in your view, is it that he can actually do? I mean, is there a legal authority that’s actually going to allow him to do anything meaningful? We’ve got about 25 seconds.

      CT: Well, I don’t know. They’re trying to see if they can do it without Congress. They don’t want to go through Congress.

      CPL: Yeah, but what kind of regulations can you do at this point?

      CT: So, well, it has to do, honestly, they don’t know, yet. They’re negotiating with, I just did a bunch of reporting for this tonight. They’re negotiating with the, you know, you basically have three entities you have to deal with here – the state insurance commissioners, for the state by state issues, the insurance companies, plus the federal, their own federal regulation. I think what they’re trying to come up with is can they basically do regulations that would allow, let’s say you got a cancellation notice, you can’t have the policy you like, but maybe they can get the insurance companies and the regulators to agree well, you know what? If you want to keep that policy, you can renew it through 2014.

    • Apology in advance if already posted this to you, there’s been so many opportunities with this idiot to remind all who he is I’ve lost track.
      October 29, 2008 the end of my column doing what little I could to try to wake up anyone who would listen to the truth about Obama:
      “In short Obama is no “new” politician at all. He is in fact the worst of the worst. A ruthless Chicago machine pol who will say anything, promise everything, and step on anyone to achieve political office. No principles, no morals, just pure political posturing. If it wasn’t for the media being in love with this guy, he’d have never made it out of the primaries.
      But sadly, he did and even sadder; our sorrow is only beginning.”
      While I expected problems, nowhere in my darkest nightmares did I ever imagine even he could be so absolute, in your face just plain anti American.

  5. Threats and intimidation – more fuel for the coming impeachment proceedings. Cap’t Queeg is losing it. Wasn’t it just yesterday that a DEM Senator accepted a ride to New Orleans on AF1 and then refused to be seen in public with the guy who tried to impress her with his chivalry? And what about the 15 DEM Senators who stormed his office, unannounced, two days ago – demanding that he ‘fix’ the Obamacare behemoth that is destroying their careers?

    Dr. Krauthammer was right. Obama’s lying about the BIG LIE is ‘insane’. Keep doubling down, Barry – it’s going to boomerang sooner rather than later. Soon, your blue state base will merge with your enemies in the red states and we will all be united. Ironic, eh?

  6. “President Obama warned Republicans Friday that there will be “a price to pay” for defying the will of the American people, which apparently, He Himself embodies.”

    I’m sorry….has he been hanging out with the mayor of Toronto? I think he has this one all backwards….His Majesty has been defying the will of the American people, and if we’d had an honest press (except for a few, including Keith!) he likely wouldn’t have won a first term, much less a second one, and certainly Obamacare would never have been passed.

    • So true. America has never favored Obamacare, not once in four years, butt he overlooks that of course.
      We’re not sold that the earth is melting, either, butt, again, not his concern.
      We’re very wary of admitting 30 million aliens into our country, butt…same.

  7. He is desperate to take the house back and put Pelosi back in charge.
    If they are successful in throwing the 2014 election it could happen, and if it does, we are doomed.
    The failure of the launch of Obamacare is a Godsend just for the fact that it is waking up people that would otherwise not be paying attention.
    The MSM can sugarcoat the debacle anyway they want but the bottom line is Obamacare has smacked millions of Americans right in the face and they will not forget come election time.
    At least, we can only hope that they won’t.

    • The mainstream media can report that 2 + 2 = 5 all they want. The American people will look at their new healthcare bills and realize that 2 + 2 = 4 and vote accordingly.

  8. He’s got nothing left. And the American people would do well to remember that it was his gal pal Nancy that said you have to read it to know what’s in it.

  9. Obama doesn’t hide his threats or intimidating manner any more.
    He’s open and notorious now with his hate, dangerous, very dangerous.

  10. uhmm, yes, the narcissism in this one is strong, yes strong…. Yoda, November 2013 while on a quick travel back in time before he jumps back to his time so they can develop the plan to correct the path that this idiot Obama put the world on in the first place.

    Now another trip back in time, to a time that also held so much promise, a time that also had a “radical” man who spoke of such things as small and effective rather than big and bloated government, of actually taking advantage of American resources rather than punishing the poor with artificially high energy prices to pay off political ideologues, when a certain veteran said:

    “I’m not satisfied when I see men like Jimmy Hoffa – in charge of the
    largest union in the United States – still free. I’m not satisfied when
    we are failing to develop the natural resources of the United States to the fullest……….I don’t want the talents of any American to go to waste. I know that there are those who want to turn everything over to the government. I don’t at all. I want the individuals to meet their responsibilities………..I don’t believe in big government, but I believe in effective governmental action. And I think that’s the only way that the United States is going to maintain its freedom.”

    Sounds a lot like Ted Cruz and most of the Tea Party radicals today doesn’t it?

    But those words were spoken over a half century ago by a WWII veteran with a young family and beautiful wife: none other than John Fitzgerald Kennedy September 26, 1960 in his opening remarks to the nation during the first televised Presidential debate in American history.

    Someone needs to show Kennedy’s words to the current occupier taking up space in the Oval and show the arrogant little pissant what a real President is.

    The only people still believing in Obama are the ones so warped in the head and so lazy in mind and spirit that they actually believe the B.S. that they are entitled to government programs and the ones sitting in D.C. enjoying their little fiefdoms at the expense of the real Americans paying the bills. There is no such thing anymore as a “liberal democrat” there is only hard core leftists accumulating as much centralized power as the ignorant masses allow.

    Sorry for the rant, but yes, I’m pissed.

    • Sometimes it seems as if we are a completely different people and have lost the past. You reminded me of that when you compared the Kennedys with the Obamas. Last week I watched a golf tournament from China and one of the American players was caught spitting on the course. This happens a lot, also in baseball. A British announcer asked the other announcer if that was acceptable over here, and he said that it was part of the culture. We just have no ethics and standards anymore, and it starts at the top.

        • Julie — Where I have been in Russia and in Central Asia spitting is common. There are all kinds of cultural and supposedly health reasons for it. Who knows? I do know that in Central Asia they eat a lot of nuts and seeds and indiscriminately spit the coverings out. It’s pretty disgusting. But then I have seen camels on the street — and they spit too.

          As for spitting on the golf course , perhaps you should ask at usgov.org or something. Surely our Golfer In Chief has the proper golf course spitting protocol somewhere.

  11. “Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions.
    Niccolo Machiavelli ”

    http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/n/niccolo_machiavelli.html#m5R46BhE5lxGV5Fh.99

    Obama’s stock in trade, laid out for him over 1500 years ago, and come to fruition today. The immediate need Obama is pushing in THIS case is immigration. Would-be “immigrants” (by which he seems to mean those here illegally that he would legitimize as he himself was, and then start chain-migrations) like this for obvious reasons, and would likely – as Obama intends – vote for him and his kind. What they fail to see beyond this “immediate need”, though, is that meeting it will change this Country into the same sort of political morass that induced them to leave home in the FIRST place.

    Democrats will happily, gleefully, willingly turn us into a third-world country – and have indeed made great strides that way – in their ongoing effort to make us “one country among many”, as Obama himself said. If allowed to proceed, this is the BEST fate we can hope for. Mass new immigrant votes will enable it. What, then, will be the prize for these newfound citizens? Oppression, division, substandard heath care, lack of opportunities due to an economy moribund with a crippling load of socialism? Would this REALLY be better than what was left behind?

    America was, and in some was, and in some ways still is, the beacon to the world, the ultimate home address. There were and are legal avenues to coming here that don’t require giving power to Democrats and rewarding lawbreaking. If we do it THEIR way, however, we’ll be more of a night light than a beacon; just enough to illuminate the way to the toilet…

    If Obama’s will is indeed America’s will, then we are finished. Remember that liberals worship Satan because he has all the power; Socialist think perditioin is a good system ran by bad men; and communist want us to go to he!! because it’s warm there in the winter. And THESE are the folks that will satisfy your “immediate need”, but at the cost of your children’s future…

  12. this guy has taken projection to a whole new level. it’s an art form the way Obama does it. his approval has dropped 15 points in 2 weeks, but it’s the Republicans who are not listening to We The People?

    even his MSM defenders are starting to write the truth. is there ANYONE who’s buying this?

  13. We (and you know who we are) will continue to be the proverbial thorn in the side of the President.

    The thorn is about to seriously turn by the end of 2014.

    He literally will not be able to get past the fact that nearly 1/3 of the American people will be without health insurance by this time next year, and there aren’t enough taxes to support any influx to Medicaid.

    He has a serious problem here, and that’s just the health insurance issue.

  14. I’m completely amazed at the arrogance of this man! Does he not realize that some of his supporters have gone on the air to voice their concerns with this so-called “better healthcare” he’s forcing on us?

    Lying to the public should not be allowed by our President. He’s the one that’s against the people, not the conservatives. His poll numbers are going down and he keeps on keeping on with the usual bully pulpit. When is someone in Washington going to have the backbone to start talking about impeachment?

    I pray 2014 ushers in a Republican Senate…

  15. We can only hope that there is “A Price to Pay” for Defying “the American People”. If there is, Obama and his crooked Chicago Thug regime will pay it

  16. Obama thought he fixed our healthcare problems by sitting down for a photo op and signing a 2,000 page bill. The truth is he made things much worse. So-called ‘immigration reform’ will be the same disaster.

  17. These are the words of a desperate politician. He is at his most dangerous now, cornered by the press (to some extent), his opponents rising from the very people who once worshiped him, sought his presence, and swooned over his every word. I picture him, sitting with his few counselors–VJ, The Mooch, and Axelrod, demanding to know, “What do I do now????” There is flop sweat everywhere, a bullseye target of Ted Cruz on the wall (darts still sticking in it). Jay Carney sitting on the floor, like a chastened puppy. The calender on the wall still showing January 2008. Drapes on the window are closed.

  18. No! the only thing the Republicans are doing is LISTENING TO THE PEOPLE, something you and your buddies don’t know how to do. You are going to pay the price in 2014 and your last two years will be spent watching your GARBAGE be put in the trash where it belongs. That is assuming they don’t develope the Balls to put your sorry ass in jail where you belong.

  19. Oh, stop with the impeachment talk. The Senate would let a wounded Obama stay in office going into the next election rather than let an incumbent run with a clean slate, exactly as they did with Clinton.

  20. Toss Valerie out, and the Muslim Brotherhood too.
    Get rid of your mother-in-law’s freeloading
    Then stop golfing (like BUSH did) and STOP the god damned campaigning
    Then get to work,;And stop bitching about American’s, Ok BARRY SOTEORO ?
    You do your effing job, we will do ours.
    Stop the media blowjobs, BARRY, and all you JOURNOLIST sycophant folks
    Just do your damn job
    Protect the USA, help more people get jobs, and then shut the hell up

    • “help more people get jobs”

      Other than lowering taxes on businesses and reducing unnecessary regulations, what can government do to help people get jobs?

  21. His speech writer ought to be fired.

    [i]Democratic Party and Democratic senators stand for right now, it’s a lot more aligned with what the American people believe and what they care about then what a small faction of the other party is trying to promote.[/i]

    It should be “Democrat Party and Democrat senators” People frequently get the adjective mixed up with the noun use of the word Democrat. He also used the word “then” and as its a comparison, should have been “than.”

  22. I keep having the same dream every night of a tiny,doll-sized Obama speaking at a tiny little podium into a tiny little microphone under a tiny little spotlight on a tiny little stage with a tiny little squeaking voice that,as he speaks grows higher pitched as he begins shrinking into oblivion.

  23. So, the reason why Obama and all the other Democrats are so keen to ram through amnesty (aka “immigration reform”) is because it would work to the advantage of Republicans! Bless their selfless little hearts.

    Meanwhile, at least 60 percent of the public opposes amnesty. That’s a large majority of the country that’s defying the will of the American people. Amazing!

    If Obama believes even half of what he says, he’s got a serious brain disorder.

  24. These are nothing less than not-so-veiled threats. Remember Jarrett and her reference to “consequences”? She sicced the IRS on the Tea Party. What government entity will Obastard use to pressure those who oppose him now?

  25. Where did Obama get the idea that struggling, out of work, now uninsured, and law abiding citizens overwhelmingly want to reward and grant citizenship to 25 million illegal aliens?

  26. Want to hear something even more discouraging and infuriating than Obama/s communist speechification: we have three more years of this lying communist dummy!

  27. The best thing you can do for the AMERICAN PEOPLE , Mr. Obama (I refuse to call you MY president) is admit YOU ARE A LIAR! And resign your position from the seat you hold in the White House.

    Betty L Clift
    Cincinnati, Oh

  28. To do this we must give up working with the Rinos and form a real third party TEA PARTY because as Va shows Rinos can’t be counted on! So lets move on b4 they have completely help sell us down the river. Tea Party fights for same principles this country was founded on and the same ones the Constitution was written on. We are not the extremist the other sides are the extremist. So I am tired of waiting on them RINOS are as much the problem with BIG GOV as leftist DEMS. So lets leave em in our dust and move on and get going! @ttechsan

  29. Threats and more threats, how does he get away with it? I can’t stand either party now, The Republicans fighting with each other? How stupid is that now when we have such a anti-American and viscious so-called President? The Democrats have turned into a combination Nazi and Communist party killing millions of babies and now wanting to tell doctors how to treat patients with their disgusting and sickening controlling medical government. Democrats have to be the dumbest people on earth for what they are trying to do,willing to let Americans die and trying to eliminate the Republicans for their viscious and crazy power trip. The democrats, lie, steal our money, and there is nothing they won’t do to take America down. If we lose our freedom, it will be tragic because of these dumb Democrats.

  30. The polls don’t support that Obama is in line with the America people. If the republicans would support the policies of the tea party they would wipe the mat with the Dems

  31. what if the American people are upset at his defiance? Who pays then. Cause we are very upset at his cheap lies and deception. We will pay for not stepping up to the plate if we continue to do nothing…….our congress is still sitting on their comfortable behinds……..while rome burns…….please tell me there are many more that are tired of his shinanangans than are for him………I need some hope..

    • I need some hope too. Another threat today from these maniacs. Every day something else. Today I heard that Obama and Reid want to put 2 more of their dumb democrats in the Court. And Reid said if the Republicans refuse, they will get the Senate to vote to change the philabustering?(spell) law. Threats, all the time threats from them. Constant hate, may the democrats rot in hell for what they are constantly doing, powermongers, and viscious too to the American people by way of thousands of new rules and regulations and putting businesses out of business and people losing their jobs, Obamacare, what a nightmare, I hope the web site never works.
