One thing I could say to support Obama's position is that, it seems to many that, many times when a side wants to past a law, the other side will vote against it not because of the idea but because of the political affiliation of the messenger.

This type of ego shoudln't be influencing law makers.

OpinionatedB:


But in general, its balance that is needed - and we don't need a bunch of extremists, on either side of the line.


I agree with this too.

Agreed...since shortly after the year 2000 congress has not been able to work together, no matter who has the majority. We have also not exactly had the best leaders this century either.

Bush, Obama, Pelosi, Boehner, Reid, etc etc. Hardly the smartest, hardly the most honest and hardly unifiers.

I mean, dayum, Pelosi and Biden do not even seem to know that Africa is a continent, not a country for crying out loud.

I don't know whats so shocking.

Who woulda thunk it. You cant trust the countries most esteemed group of liars, thieves, and conmen. They're the biggest criminals in the country and they stand around in front of cameras lying to you constantly, and people... applaud? Occasionally boo or throw a shoe. Its like a god damned circus to me. I watch the news on occasion and whenever politics is on it saddens me. I just don't get why people think this is worth participating in.

How can these people be reasoned with? Seems all they care about is money, and the ones without money are the only ones who have genuine concerns about things other than money. Bah im rambling but I think you get my point.

Get ready for the Monarchy that never died, because it's Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton coming the herds way!

Yep, if you can even believe it? Yes but its coming, and only in The United Bizzaro States of America will it truly happen. That is how stupid the people of this Nation are, the illiterate majority are complete imbeciles.

That is why they allow uneducated foreigners to pour illegally into America. They allow it in order to guarantee more fools who will vote for them over one issue, instead of for everything that you support overall.

Let me translate it for the sheople, = Useful tools. And it occurs on both sides of the fabricated, political circus side show. ~$heopleNation

The writing on the wall has been there a long time but most chose to ignore it,citing racism and politics as the motivating factor for any and all criticism of the POTUS. Despite the fact we knew nothing about this guys past and ALL of his records from school,his professional life and his health records were all sealed at the personal cost of millions, many turned a blind eye.Now everything is coming to fruition and still,even now,many refuse to see. I guess the powers that be have successfully turned us all into mush brains,unable to think for ourselves and easily coerced into thinking any criticism of OUR guy is trickery from the other side.Us against them mentality,fostered through sports, politics,race and nationality.
Obama often says things that do not reflect reality and the media doesn't question him no matter how off base he is.He says the worst threat to us is right wing domestic terrorism? With Isis hell bent on our destruction and a welcome mat on the southern border telling them to c`mon in(and they have)HE SEE`S RIGHT WING CONSERVATIVES AS OUR BIGGEST THREAT?! There`s not even any right wing groups i can think of that have done anything at all over the last couple decades.Who? Skinheads?Please. these are just kids in a gang no different than blacks or Latinos,struggling for acceptance and an identity.In it not so much for the politics than the sense of belonging. Put them all together and you`ve got 10 murders in the last 5 years.Black and Latino gangs? 10 murders in the last 2 hours.Whose the bigger threat?
Conservative ideals or any ideals for that matter cannot be considered a threat in a REPUBLIC BECAUSE ITS ALL ABOUT THE CHOICE OF THE PEOPLE,free to voice opinions and obligated to hear the opinions of others.The people will decide at the elections where they want to steer the country.To say one side or the other is treasonous and they should be silenced shows the weakness of your viewpoint because it shows you don`t believe your argument will stand up in a open and fair debate.Otherwise why would you need to silence them?Silence them with your track record and with your superior ideas.
It`s obvious this country is being taken apart at the seems to fulfill some agenda and the best interest of our country is of no concern to the people currently running it.How much proof do you need? We`re heading straight for the cliff from 5 different directions.

This is how a failed political movement acts when there complete fail is eminent and when the lackey in charge of this movement knows he is a failure in the eyes of his handlers who else to ridicule but the people that put him there.

Point being, maybe congress is not as bad as we all might think...how bad can they be if there making Obama make statements like this.

This is nothing new. Just a re-assertion of previously held beliefs and statements.

Remember when he talked about people, meaning Republicans/Conservatives who cling to their bibles and guns? He's now merely clarifying what he meant by that.

I can understand I'llbombya's position of placing the right wingnuts into a category of profound uselessness.

They have beliefs without proof or logic supporting them from "This is a Christian Nation", "The past was better", "Evolution, says who?", "Education is best monitored by our community" and most perniciously, "We are not bigots."

They are humorous, even if unintentional but they drive the level of discourse and the topics we deal with.

They are corporate stooges who are knee-jerk in their precepts because BELIEF ALLOWS FOR NO COMPROMISE.

This is not to state I LIKE Demoncrats who are part and parcel of the same coin that gives us the Repulsicans. It's just obvious that the Ayn Randish posturing of the one is sickening. They have resorted to disruption of processes that had previously allowed for communing and compromise.

I understand that you want to keep your whole pie. I also know that the communities that protect and promote the creation of that confection must be funded. I also know that you can't wear more than one set of clothing, eat more than one meal or live in more than one house at a time. I know that government like any other organism can make demands that are onerous to the system and could absorb all the resources if allowed. Somewhere in the middle is the proper portion for the state and a reasonable return to the earner.

None of that reasonable approach is permitted by I'llbombya's SWORN enemies. I mean to tell you folks that if you compared the bloodiness of Bushwhacked to the a@@wholeness of the Nigerian, the Nigerian is better. Same goes for the economy and he does react to (Not saying he will do anything.) the excesses of the governments, which I did not see with the prior administration.

What the Repulsicans need to do is to stop being obstructionist just because they can. They are horrible people who swore to destroy this Presidency. They have shown no ability to rule, no ability to budget, no ability to increase their supporting base, no ability to see beyond their noses. They are not humane, kind, generous or concerned about the future. They act as if the rapture is a good thing. They believe in money. They believe in their corpseraist masters. They do not believe in us no matter how they spin it.

It's obvious that when you engage them they retreat to those beliefs and load their cannons with the spewing of intellectual lightweights, liars and professional provocateurs' BS.

Just so we get this right, if you want, I support Elizabeth Warren and Sanders politically. I am not concerned by their personal lives or personal morality, just that which is publicly expressed. I like some positions of Ron Paul. I think the Republican governors should be disposed of. I think the military is out of control. I think our Foreign Policy is too Machiavellian. I think we need to control our borders but then we should not cause the situation that brings CHILDREN to such desperation that they flee to a fence a thousand miles away. I think the world is complex and we must share the burden of figuring a path to a harmony which is inclusive and fair.

First, Kill all the Holy Men and then the lawyers.

Only kidding-let's dispossess them.

Unfortunately, the main problem are voters who are totally ignorant of issues, problems, potential solutions basing their votes on a single issue or a single factor.

Interviews taken outside polls have shown time and again that people are voting who cannot name the current VP, the current Secretary of State etc etc. When asked about major issues they may be aware of a couple of the issues but are totally clueless regarding who stands for what.....

It's one thing to be an educated and aware member of the right, or the left, but ignorance of the masses is severely problematic and those are the numbers that add up.

It really says something when we have candidates that seem to have problems with logic, that can't seem to connect dots and are so unaware of foreign issues that one cannot say much but "ouch" when you hear them speak.

You are a close minded fool who disparages everything and anything conservatives believe in.You are everything you claim to be against, a self righteous,non tolerant,close minded fool.You show no respect for the right of others to think freely for themselves.You think you know it all and anyone thinks different is a idiot.Even here on this thread you can`t restrain yourself from the juvenile name calling and the belittlement that has become synonymous with liberals who debate conservatives on the issues. Why so frustrated? Do you resort to this childish tactic as a smoke and mirrors effect because your argument wont stand under scrutiny?Of course you do. Forget Bush and Obama,they are both losers,and forget your hot button issues with religion.These are just a tiny fraction of the big picture and act more as a distraction than anything.Lets look at the core principles behind progressives and conservatives.Conservatives believe in morality and the rule of law as the principal pillars upholding society,without them society crumbles as the lines between right and wrong get blurred.Moral decline has proven time and time again to fast track a civilizations collapse.Progressives believe in no boundaries,they worship political correctness and they are the very bigots they so gleefully claim conservatives are.They lie and censor the news covering up atrocities committed daily across this country by a minority,while searching under every rock to accuse another man, based on his race, of bigotry and hatred.They have such a hard time finding a violent racist white person who fits the mold they're looking for, they`ll just use a Hispanic and call him white,(George Zimmerman)cause they have to feed the hatred they feel towards a person based on his race to there core because it builds there support up.
So Mr. largo this is progressive liberals at work, censoring the thousands of racial assaults committed by blacks against whites throughout the year,(never hear of any of them)while searching frantically everywhere like a desperate weasel to find even a hint of in- propriety to pin on a white guy,because he`s white! You`re a f...ing hypocrite!
By the way I dont see color, just the facts.I gotta go but if you want to ever debate any core beliefs just let me know,if you can refrain from the name calling.

"“Our politics are dysfunctional… societies don’t work if political factions take maximalist positions,” said Obama, who repeatedly claims to be a moderate stymied by the GOP’s supposed obstructionism and radicalism."

I am sure that I am wrong, but please correct me if the above quote is not the justification for your outrageous claim.

Please do tell me where Obama mentions conservatives as "the greatest threat to the nation."



I can't find it anywhere either, I suspect the author of the article was just writing another hit piece for ad revenue.
