Fresh on the heels of “don’t insult people with disabilities by comparing them with liberals” brou-ha-ha, comes news of Obama’s latest slap.

It comes in the context of his Q&A with so called Democratic senators and it’s in response to Blanche Lincoln’s demand to smite the retards err heathens:

asked Obama to push back against “people at the extremes” of both parties, especially against Democrats “who want extremes.”

you know, like freedom of choice for women, or lack of monopoly status for insurers – these kinds of extremes.

No one was shocked by the request and after reciting some pablum Obama agreed:

“Blanche is right that we sometimes get bogged down in ideology.”

Ideology= retarded silly stuff such as civil rights, worker rights, no wars and such.

Obama is the post-partisan president – can’t get bogged down by these retarded nonsense.

After all, he represents a base that  strategists invented for him: Generation Jones

Jonesers are idealistic, Pontell says, but not ideological like boomers.

So, don’t worry, he’s just representing that base. They do exist, right?

Of course, in B0botland, the sky is of another color as they get their news pre-chewed by their propaganda outlet

So suddenly the slogans Obama recited become the headline

Obama Calls Out Conservative Democrats For Their Timidity

and generates more ecstatic headlines there

So, they are grateful, the pundits are grateful…Senators, not so much, it seems. After being delivered this forked tongue speech in front of the cameras, things changed a bit

Tough talk comes after Obama exits

This whole thing reminds me of an upstate congressman caught pants down a few years ago, showing up for a press conference surrounded by 3 years olds:

Senate Democrats held back from asking President Barack Obama about healthcare reform during a carefully scripted question-and-answer session in front of television cameras.

Senators did not want to press Obama on healthcare reform in front of television cameras for fear of putting him in an awkward spot.

Once the “3 years olds” were ushered out

Democrats expressed their frustration with the lack of a clear plan for passing healthcare reform, according to one person in the room.

“It wasn’t a discussion about how to get from Point A to Point B; it was a discussion about the lack of a plan to get from Point A to Point B,” said a person who attended the meeting. “Many of the members were frustrated, but one person really expressed his frustration.”

But lawmakers said after the meeting that White House officials did not provide any clear roadmap.

Note how Obama’s name is replaced with the euphemism “White House officials”. A bit different from the previous headlines, non?

Should we tell  the B0bots about, or let them bask in the aura of “we told them. Our guy let them have it” some more?

And while some are still dreaming

8. Ironic. Obama sounds like DU posters who’ve been trashing him

15. shames them with 500,000 for TV ads trashing the public option
it’s a lot like how he shames the banks.

and especially this one who saw the entire pattern

29. Really. Here’s what I think the strategy is:

Year One: Hand money to Wall Street as fast as possible, continue corporatist policies. Sell insurance industry handout as “healthcare reform”.

Year Two: Election year. Need to re-energize the base, which will be angry and disaffected after a year of repeated betrayal. Play liberal again, but nothing too substantive. Pretty words, a little kabuki theater, political WWF stuff. Maybe a social wedge issue or two.

Delay the really overt economic screwing until after November (Debt Commission).

Year Three: Repeat Year One.

Update

We get more names from the “after” discussion

A Democratic source said that Franken directed his criticism solely at Axelrod.

“It was all about leadership and health care and what the plan was going to be,” the source said.

yeah, because that’s why people voted for Axelrod, they needed his leadership… oh, wait…
