Obama: I Work for Americans, Not Lobbyists


abcnews.go.com

"I know these steps won't sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business, and I know they're gearing up for a fight as we speak," Obama said in a fiery weekly address released today. "My message to them is this: So am I."

The president pitted himself against some of the nation's most unpopular industries, and he named names: bankers, insurers and energy companies.

"I know that the insurance industry won't like the idea that they'll have to bid competitively to continue offering Medicare coverage," Obama said. "I know that banks and big student lenders won't like the idea that we're ending their huge taxpayer subsidies. ... I know that oil and gas companies won't like us ending nearly $30 billion in tax breaks."

I really don't know what Obama is on about in this article, but I know who him and his administration are NOT working for!

Then this:


Political analysts say it was no surprise he chose those industries. "If you want to demonize the industries that might oppose your proposals, you might want to pick the ones that are most unpopular. That's what he did," University of Virginia political science professor Larry Sabato told ABC News. "In politics, you can accomplish more by flogging evil figures than you can by spreading hope and love and audacity."


So, is he now demonizing those industries, thinking that he will gain trust from the people? It is like someone else in another thread was saying.. Something like "I don't know what your president is, but he is NOT socialist."

He isn't working for us.

Congress isn't working for us.

Like any other politician, he is working for himself.

Thats like classic


Really when a leader of his country says that. Hes obviously AWARE that people are suspecting that he isn't working for the people.

So there he goes and annonce to the sheeple for "REASSURANCE"
"I'm working for you people"

Give me a f****** break.
Obama is going to fail even worse than Bush. My prediction will come true. Why because people will realise that the people working with Bush are the same b****** working with Obama.. The exact same agenda is going on. THe exact ssame bad smelling of lies and deception. America

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
WHAT ARE YOU AWARE OF NOW?
DO YOU SEE ANY RESEMBLANCE.OF THE AGENDA?
WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS?
DO YOU SENCE SOMETHING WRONG?

It's the rulling powers since the very begginning. They all hope that Obama would cool us down. It didn't And this crapology such as these statements from Obama himself.

Are deemed nothing but stupid and insulting to my intellegence. I think it's beyond embarrassing at this stage. The powers of be are now reacting. I knew thiis day is coming and coming very fast



So whos powerful now eh.

It's funny too.

Obama is nothing without the lobbyists. SO OBAMA IS NOW A LIAR? or his he told to lie.

Let's not forget
He doens't have a history of wealth
He doesn't have a history in power
He doesnt hava ahistory in politics

So where does or did he recieve power from?

Let us not forget that even Bush was a puppet, and he obviously worked ofr the lobbyists. But why is Obama suddenly immune to it?

It's f***** absurd. Apologies for swearing, but it's too insulting to actually respect or listen to such LIES.............

Part of me kinda hopes he is for real, although I tend to think you are 1000% correct. Only time will tell, if he is truly a man for the People and for America and does things to meet those ends. Well how did all the great ones die? In public and with a bullet usually, or three.

I didn't vote for him or anyone at all this last time around, but I will say that so far he has has led America towards a more peaceful existence in the world, and God knows that the War Industry won't like that one bit...

Domestically speaking he really can't make changes without the congress and I think those 535 scumbags have already shown us who they work for.

I wish President Obama and America luck in it's future and GOD knows we will need it...

I really couldn't have said it better myself. He is working for himself, just like the rest of them.

Who do you think will pay for that loss of $30 billion in tax breaks? Do you really think the energy industry will just absorb it out of the goodness of their hearts? That tax increase will show up in your energy bill every month. Obama wants to hit YOU the taxpayer with yet another liability, and most sheeple are naive enough to buy it hook line, and sinker. Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a graceful manner that they ask you for directions, and look forward to the trip. Obama is the most tactful politician I have seen in a long time.

Just a quick thought, as what you said reminded me of what some people here on ATS were predicting...

Basically that once Obama really started to get things going, we would be begging to get Bush back.
I NEVER thought it could be possible, but Obama might just be hell-bent on showing us.

I reckon all of this depends on who Obama defines as a lobbyist.

If you are for his plans you are a consultant. If you are against his plans you are a lobbyist.

Remember when the Clintons demonized the drug manufactorers? How well did that work out?
Interesting that Obama says he's not looking out for the interests of bankers, while doling out our hard earned future taxes by bailing out banks, continuing the legacy of GW.

I'm sorry to say, i don't try to remind anyone of their agenda, nor do I try to remind people of the nonsense conpiracies "of American life" on ATS.

Bush works for the same people Obama works for. Can you understand?

GW is a war criminal, i think it's atrocious that you actually said that. America needs a wake up call AGAIN, your post reminds me more of that.

Obama is creating an environment of class warfare. He wants us to believe that rich people are evil...I'm not rich, as a matter of fact I'm unemployed and my significant other is the one bringing in the doe right now. But that doesn't mean I'm going to blame rich people for this.

How about inept people? How about people who are irresponsible? How about the government that caused this mess? How about partisan squabbling that distracted America from the damage both parties are doing to OUR nation?

Screw Obama, screw the DNC, screw the GOP, screw them all. They don't have our best interest at heart and they don't care about your safety. They only care about getting re-elected.

Lol hate to say it, but I think with the state of the world these days.. and people finding that they have been betrayed by BOTH parties, they should drop the idea of re-election right now.

Now would be the time, if any, to declare yourself a dictator and just not worry about what the people think. No matter who wins an election, people will be upset.

Really, with how upset many of the people are... it would be a good idea to become dictator, and then go into hiding for a while.

But look at how many people voted for him

It doesn't matter whether your republican, cheezy strawberry or democrat.

They put you in a state of division and control via these parties. You don't decide your president



I say it AGAIN YOU DON'T PICK YOUR PRESIDENT.

And people would rather he picked what industries? Cheese makers? Perhaps he picked the notorious industries because they are notorious for doing dirty business.

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
