Remember the”bitter” comments? During the media choreographed 2008 elections, Obama told some fat cats in San Francisco that all Democratic voters in Pennsylvania not voting for him were bitter racist xenophobes . (Only the “bitter” lingered, the others were carefully neutralized)
This year, in Connecticut, amongst fat cats donating 30,000 a piece he mocks the professional leftards thusly
If you get the financial reform bill passed — then, well, I don’t know about this particular derivatives rule, I’m not sure that I’m satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven’t yet brought about world peace and — (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker. (Laughter.) You know who you are. (Laughter.) We have had the most productive, progressive legislative session in at least a generation.
Interesting how “you know who you are” almost verbatim replays Gibbs comments. I guess that disavowal ain’t coming any time soon. It also chillingly send the message “I know who you are”
So, just as Robert Gibbs before him explained (albeit more harshly), if you’re one of those people dissatisfied with large parts of the Obama presidency, that’s only because you have something wrong with the way you think (you need drug testing/you “congenitally see the glass as half empty”), and because you are saddled with extremely unrealistic, child-like expectations (you’re angry that the Pentagon hasn’t closed yet/bitter that Obama “hasn’t yet brought about world peace: ‘I thought that was going to happen quicker’ (Laughter.)”). In other words, you’re just a petulant, unreasonable, unrealistic, fringe child who doesn’t appreciate the greatness and generosity he’s given you
For those who remember the arrogance towards the voters during the elections 2008, this is nothing new.
Who remembers his loss in Nevada? Did he concede? No. He left town and posted on his website: “I still get more delegates” so…who cares what you think?
One thing is for sure. Obama never would have expressed this kind of contempt for the base prior to his own election. ….
Nobody in the history of electoral politics, and I mean nobody, believes that telling people to “get over it” will get them to the polls. (Well, nobody but Spiro Agnew.) And you can bet your bottom dollar that come 2012, when Obama’s own electoral future is on the line, that won’t be his message.
Don’t bet, Jane. Your choices these past years haven’t been so….lucky. “Get over it” was precisely what Hillary supporters were told.
Obama’s sense of entitlement surpasses even Bush’s who was taught by Babs to “appear humble”.
Does anyone realize the cynicism of those remarks? Let’s take the healthcare reform.
Obama told Republicans at a retreat that it was the Heritage Foundation bill. He also admitted in the last press conference that they knew prices would go up. And yet, those wanting a public option are the ones to be laughed at….
In B0botland, there’s a locked thread – author banned
109. He didn’t mock “liberals”. He mocked the teabaggers of the left who…
can’t accept not getting everything they want the way they want it.…..The taste of sour grapes from a lot of people don’t have 30 grand to splurge at a fundraiser is so prevalent it’s wandering over here and making my dinner taste funny. How the fuck do you think money is really raised?
(And the threat to not work for Democrats or Obama is a hollow one– I don’t believe anyone who would drop out now was ever worth two shits to the cause.) Permalink
Notice, the critics are no longer PUMAs, they are teabaggers of the left. The other responses are mostly deleted. This was also a whistle of open season on leftards which are set as scape goats for whatever defeats are in store. Oops! I stand corrected:
1. What bullshit. Read the FULL TRANSCRIPT before buying into Greenwald’s PUMA propaganda:

Of course, the circumstances of these remarks are evocative of W’s humor: “the haves and have mores – I call you my base”. But then again, Wall Street invested 3 times more in Obama’s installment than they did in W.
So take this, you teabaggers of the left. History will prove jr.jr a genius and you the schmucks who bought the expensive advertising and supported him.
