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

Obama Tacitly Rejects Boehner’s Lawsuit

The system is rigged!

That’s the conclusion of our president about the essential unfairness and repression that exists in the United States, used as justification for continuing to “go it alone” without Congress.

The system. What system?

Is this some college dorm bullshit session where we toss around the latest observations from our favorite Marxist Poli Sci professor?

No, it’s this week’s weekly presidential address, in which President Obama makes clear the important work of fixing the system and fighting Republicans who hate middle class Americans is too important for him to be bothered by John Boehner’s lawsuit, which seeks to rein in Obama’s use of the West Wing to craft legislation.

From the address:

Republicans in Congress keep blocking or voting down almost every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.  This year alone, they’ve said no to raising the minimum wage, no to fair pay, no to student loan reform, no to extending unemployment insurance.  And rather than invest in education that helps working families get ahead, they actually voted to give another massive tax cut to the wealthiest Americans.

This obstruction keeps the system rigged for those at the top, and rigged against the middle class.  And as long as they insist on doing it, I’ll keep taking actions on my own – like the actions I’ve taken already to attract new jobs, lift workers’ wages, and help students pay off their loans.  I’ll do my job.  And if it makes Republicans in Congress mad that I’m trying to help people out, they can join me, and we’ll do it together.

The point is, we could do so much more as a country – as a strong, tight-knit family – if Republicans in Congress were less interested in stacking the deck for those at the top, and more interested in growing the economy for everybody.

What a crappy country this must be in the mind of Obama. Rigged for rich. Nothing for the poor. Nothing for the middle class.

And people like Obama actually have the nerve to think of others as simplistic.

  1. Obama is permanently ticked off because the Republicans won’t do what Obama wants them to do. They won’t bow down and pass every law he demands that they pass. So he insults them publicly, calls them names, questions their patriotism and demonizes as often as possible.

        • I don’t know how anyone can hear his whiny or hectoring or snarky speech patterns and think they’re listening to someone who merits any respect at all. He really is a grotesque caricature of a president.

          • And he stands there whining and waving those little hands like he does coming off AFOne… you are so correct too about the speech patterns…a fifth grade girl would do better.

  2. This msn is such a poor excuse for a president. He blames everyone
    for everything as if he is not responsible for anything. He can’t seem
    to man up for anything. I am sure he is a big disappointment for many,
    even those in the democratic side.

  3. Of course the “system” is rigged, everything is rigged. If he had been born a female, he wouldn’t now be sitting in the Oval Office whining about the system. If he hadn’t lied about his background, his childhood and his everything, no one would have bought his books and made him a multi-millionaire. Geez.
    If it weren’t for the rigged academic system of affirmative action or alumni preference, MrsO would have been lucky to go to a community college somewhere in Chicago instead of the pricey elitist ivy league schools she did attend.
    MrO himself is rigging the system for his favorite themes of glo-bull warming/cooling/something by giving our hard-earned monies to his friends who make wild promises of renewable energy. He rigged the DOJ, the DOD, the IRS, and every other agency to follow what he wants, not what America wants.
    He rigged the system wherein his teenage daughter gets to intern on a TV show ahead of qualified people.
    He rigged the system to allow and encourage illegal aliens from around the world to invade our country for reasons not yet clear.

    Of course the system is rigged, and he’s the biggest rigger of all.

    • I think that he is intelligent enough to realize that his lies are closing in on him.
      It’s only a matter of time for the people around him to also realize that he is going to take them down with him.
      It is going to be interesting to watch this play out.

      • I wonder if he’s mentally equipped to recognize the difference between a factual statement and a statement that serves his interests. To a pathological narcissist, they may look exactly the same.

      • Yes. The press who created him must really be doing a soul searching now.
        My husband and I were saying today that we have hope of getting him out for the first time ever. The wheels are almost off the little boy’s big wheel..

  4. I just finished reading the Preface in Dr. Ben Carson’s new book One Nation (which was mostly the transcript of his Prayer Breakfast speech he poked Obama with). Now I want to beat Obama over the head with this book! THIS, you idiot, is HOW you talk to your country’s citizens!!

    It’s really so simple, Obama’s a coward and a thug, he’s destroying our country’s moral fiber and he could care less about us, OR his supporters. And, I’m not to fond of the GOP establishment letting him get away with it while protecting their own miserable, corrupt bunch (Cochran v. McDaniel in MS anyone?)

    And no, that rant doesn’t make me a racist teabagger, but Obama wants you to think I am. :D

    • I love Dr. Carson’s book and have read it twice. It’s so inspirational in the sense that he speaks to people, not DOWN at people like Obama does.

      I’ve wondered for the longest time why Obama doesn’t have many protesters or hecklers at his events. We need the Bush equivalent of a Cindy Sheehan, to hound him, to get press. I’d do it if I didn’t think I’d spend the rest of my life being audited or wire-tapped!!

      • I believe H.R. 347 (updated 2012) made it illegal to protest — in any area where there are Secret Service. Heaven forbid that Mr. Thin Skin get his feelings hurt.

    • I don’t see you as a racist teabagger at all.
      I see a Patriot whose soul is longing for the America that once was.
      Keep the faith,….we can do this.

    • I don’t pull my political check book out very often. I have for Dr. Ben Carson. His campaign is called Run Ben Run. Never, ever, did I imagine myself supporting, believing in, another black person. This one comes with real credentials. Real education. Real ideas. Real Concern about my America not Barack’s Amerika.

  5. How about “This year alone, I’ve lied about healthcare, lied about Benghazi, obstructed the IRS investigation, put our country in as much danger as it’s been in a long time. And the year is only half done”.

    I may be fooling myself, but I think that the end is near for this guy. The IRS will be his undoing. Even the most corrupt Attorney General in our history won’t be able to put off calls for a special prosecutor. That “phony scandal” will be Obama’s Watergate.

  6. Barry’s insolence is monumental.
    If we are able to take the senate and retain the house in November, his hissy fit will also be monumental.
    I can’t wait to see it.
    One little lawsuit sets him off,…imagine what impeachment proceedings would do.

  7. He just does not understand the concept of compromise. The Republicans don’t accept his outrageous bill and offer their version and that is it. It stops. Look at the Senate this year. I believe they have passed two laws.

    Harry Reid does not allow a vote up or down on any subject he does agree with. My question to the other Democrat Senator is …….why are you even here?? They don’t vote because their leader won’t allow. They even changed the rules of the Senate to a simple majority. Obama and Reid is what is stopping the Country. Pelosi is just an idiot in the way. She can’t answer the question of a 12 year old and she was 3rd in line to the Presidency at one point. Yikes….l

  8. LOL. Obama resorting to attacking “the system”. (If there were a “system”, he’d be at the pinnacle of it.) He gets more puerile day by day. In MN he complained about the Republicans calling him names, and I for one will never forget about the “stinkyburgers” and “meanwiches” the Republicans supposedly want us to eat.

  9. I saw the headline Keith and I actually laughed.

    So Obama “tacitly rejects” — as if he was really some king or overlord ….

    So, the “system” is “rigged” and “deck”is “stacked”. What President talks like this? Does he have any clue that this is not his sandbox?

  10. How did that SoB get the notion that he is uniquely justified in breaking down the constitutional restraints that previous presidents have generally acknowledged at least in principle? And you know he thinks he’s more justified than George W. Bush ever was, because he actually complained that Bush was exceeding his authority and that it was dangerous and unacceptable.

    Barack Obama must be the most poorly qualified and the most narcissistic individual ever to have held the presidency, in addition to being deeply mendacious, corrupt, whiny, nasty, punkish, lazy, arrogant, malignant, ill-educated (“Navy corpse-man”), etc. etc. I cannot think of a redeeming quality he has that doesn’t vanish into nothingness on closer inspection, unless it’s that his temper doesn’t seem as explosive as Bill’s or Hill’s.

  11. The mask was off in Minneapolis. A classic Captain Queeg moment. This ill-bred, cocky little smart aleck, is so far over his head he showed the world what he’s all about when he goes off script.
    It comes down to the fact that Obama is nothing more than a community organizer, and a lousy one at that, who is drunk with power. Was there one thing presidential about this rabble-rouser i Minneapolis?
    If his performance this week didn’t set the wheels in motion for impeachment, I don’t know what the answer is. He is not insane – he is 110% incompetent and unfit to serve. Capt. Queeg on steroids.

  12. What’s chilling is that Obama and his followers are not seekers of truth in any way shape or form, just an agenda to shove down our throats at any cost, and the end justifies the means.

  13. Name one thing Dictator Obama has in common with the middle class besides stealing their money to fund his and the First Entitlement Queen’s lavish lifestyles and vacation? Remember they are multi-millionaires. This has happened after Oboma became president/dictator. Just how did these two hard core communists make so much money living on Dictator Obama’s gubmint salary? How?

  14. If Obama thinks that increasing the minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits forever, and forgiving student loans helps the middle class, it’s no wonder the middle class is becoming extinct. Has there ever been another president in history who has publicly stated he is a law unto himself as Obama did in this address? This alone should outrage every single American and make it beyond question that Obama is a dictator.

    • (PLEASE IF YOU READ THIS DONT STOP HALF WAY THROUGH. I HAVE TO SAY SOME THINGS TO PROVE A POINT. What democracy? I mean really… We have a man in power that is reffered to “his excilency” instead of “the president” in some parts of the world. So much proof of his betrayal to the american people has either “never existed” or has been edited to suit his desired effect. This crap about opening the U.S. borders is an attempt on obama’s part to gain supporters and flood the U.S. with people who don’t know how americans do things and always have. How the U.S. works and keeps working the way it does. I’m watching a document on CNN right now that is following a very nice Filipino man fighting for his citizenship. Its a very touching story and it plays on how xenophobic so many white (mostly “christian”) americans are. I apologize I don’t have enough time to keep explaining, but in the end if you take one thing from what im saying… Please remember that if ever there was a time in our lives to stand up and do something… Now is the time… Do your research and find DEFINATE proof of what Obama is doing… Otherwise I shutter to think of what we will witness… Its impossible to find but this has happened already and this explains just how close we already came: the UN has a treaty that say the U.S. is to disarm their citizens. It happened well before today (June 30, 2014). The only reason it isn’t public is because it wasn’t ratified in the U.S. courts. It didn’t pass but only by 5 votes… 5… Stand up now and keep the U.S from collapsing to the socialism of the world… Socialism only looks good on paper… It allows to few people to have to much power… Sound like America? That’s because so much has changed. The best or easiest sounding idea isn’t always the best one.
