Except he understood what he said was wrong, and had all the men come to have a beer to discuss.

Obama was wrong, and he admits it. Is the guy not allowed to make mistakes from time to time on what he says?

He admitted that he used the wrong words, but he didn't reverse his opinion about the Gate's issue. He didn't try to unite people.

www.youtube.com...


"I want that make clear that my choice of word I think I unfortunately gave an impression.... I could have calibrated my words... I continue to believe..."


This relates to the health care bill, for he is doing the same thing over and over again. He is saying one thing, and then he is doing something else. Doublespeak?

Well, no, I agreed with him on the fact that the cop was an idiot.

I understand that they had to check to see if someone was breaking, but it's the guys house. How can you arrest a man for breaking into his own house?

And don't say, "Well, he was arrested for disorderly conduct."

It's his house. He can yell in it if he wants.

The President and his administration is walking on "thin ice". They better darned be careful who they are threatening because any impropiety on their part will bring on immediate "impeachment" and Barack Hussein Obama can join Bill Clinton in the infamous "impeached" Presidents list.

I think it is very sad that the current administration feels they need to make these threats. I suppose that is what bullies do when they are backed into a corner and have no other defense. Small minded people who can't come up with anything better.

I don't think they realize that they are driving more people away from the way they think instead of trying to come to a more peaceful medium. Does anyone remember a time when the American government has told it citizens to basically shut up? Our first amendment rights are just about as well as gone at this point. This is making me angrier by the day.

It is getting scary and it is only going to get worse. Really, sending in thugs to beat up people who have a differing opinion. I think FEMA has put the housekeeping staff on call to be ready to make up the cots and roll out the welcome mats, if they haven't already done it.

See. Obama was successful. Wasn't he?

He got you to believe one thing to cover up his failure. Its similar to the Rev. Wright incident. Instead of apologizing and dismissing Rev. Wright on the spot, he instead gave you a lecture on racial issues. Who was to blame for Rev. Wright's actions? Obama believes it was our fault because we are all racist. Get it?

The more divided he can get us, the more he can manipulate things behind the scenes. I think he wants to send us into a police state.

These protests are a reflection of his inexperience.

Really... having a beer summit wasn't an attempt to unite folks?

It was a public relations stunt, which he used as a photo op.

What did they resolve? Did they progress racial relations?

Lol, yeah, Obama is DIVIDING US.

Now, the only question is, is he dividing us by race, or by political party?

Well I would assume that any "uniting" of America would have to be done via public relations...

Geesh... how else?

Well looking at the headlines I would say the public relations effort is having a negative and not a positive effect.

Preaching to the choir is one thing.

Gaining converts and winning hearts and minds is another.

All I see is bullying and intimidation tactics aimed at cowering and silencing people...and while you are oblivious to it...

Obviously a very large and vocal group of Americans isn't oblivious to the tactics or we wouldn't be having these conversations would we.

There is a big difference between blind allegiance based on hope and false promises and lies, and allegiance based on trust and respect.

Obama is not winning anyone's trust or respect that didn't start out in the choir, and he has caused more people to quit the choir than to join it.

The slipping poll numbers show that, the headlines show that.

In my humble oppinion the man is so incompetent and inexperienced he can't even talk the talk let alone walk the walk.

He is dividing America and he is a danger to it.

He is with out a doubt already the worst President in history and we will be lucky to still have a history if this Presidency continues to run it's insideous course.

So you attribute the town hall headlines to his beer summit?

How'd you make that connection?

You don't get it do you?

Bush had a super low approval rating when he left office, that is a big reason why Obama got elected.

The people didn't stop being PO'd when Bush left office. Obama is continuing many of the same policies and now he has resorted to issuing threats against the citizens.

This is the culmination of the past 8 years where our liberties have been constantly trampled. Obama is the one that wanted the job and he got it, and the only change I see is things are getting much much worse under him.

That fact is the anger only was put on the back burner to see how Obama handles things, and with in a month of him being in office he started shoving bills down our throats that we didn't want, and they are continuing to that.

That is the way it is, he lied to get into office and people see it, there is no "wait and see what he does" our freedom(whats left of it) is on the line and people are rightfully PO'd about it.

Obama had his chance and he proved he is no better than Bush was, the past 8 years was not easily forgotten and now Obama is having to deal with the lies he told.

Not based on the venom apparent lately. But certainly a start IMO.

ON TOPIC:

I watched the video several times. I do not think "threats" were made. Veiled or otherwise. "Walking on thin ice" to me simply means "running out of ammo" or "running out of legitimate claims." In other words, in the "last throes" as some might say.

"Turning down the heat" I interpret as "calm down and think rationally" or "minimize the hate-filled rhetoric." No threats of retaliation were hurled that I see.

Thread title seems misleading. That is my takeaway while I'm still allowed to offer one.

the only uniting obama appears to want, is that of the entire country under government control which for the time being means his control. the beer summit was a photo op built on his belief that his personality can carry any occasion. just the pleasure of being with him is enough. it worked with the media, with voters, with europeans, so why wouldn't it work now with press conferences and the beer summit.

i see no evidence that he wants to end racial or partisan tension. he constantly whips it up with his remarks.

Oh... so I voted for Obama because I didn't like Bush? Was that why I didn't vote for Kerry in 2004?

Although I agree lots of people were miffed at bush, the majority of us who voted for Obama did it because of who Obama is. How he handles himself, his ability to use multi-syllabic words and entertain thoughts without accepting them.

It wasn't because of Bush that Obama was elected. He wasn't running against Bush. He was running against McCain if I recall.

Now it very well might of had a lot to do with the Palin Antics as to why McCain just didn't get the votes...

It want be long now, a few months at the most and their will be no holding back this evil that has consumed this country. Even though we out number them by a large percentage they have weapons (tanks) that can overcome this emblance quickly. On top of that they have a license to kill.
They are without a conscious and offer only lies and deceptions. We will see a revolt and the the killing will multiply many times over. Depopulation is is one of their major goals along with complete control. Several issues will usher this reality in such as a fininacial collapse, mandatory vacination and most jobs that have been lost by the millions not coming back. Their is away out but many remain blind. Luck will not be apart of this new reality. This islamic demon will strike with the force of his god the devil. Mark these words and I hope and pray you will discover the truth before it is to late.

Who are these "they" you speak of? Sounds like the right wing to me... they have guns and weapons etc... and you are correct we do outnumber those on the right wing. We displayed that during the election.

Actually no, you just did though!

History is always the best example Hunka for people really looking to get things right.

I was no fan of Ronald Regan but Regan got a huge amount of democrats to vote for him and to support him in his policies...

How did he do that?

First and foremost he was humble and self depreciating, always making himself the brunt of his own silly jokes, disarming and charming people not riling them up.

He wasn't an ego maniac like Obama.

He didn't come across narcisistic.

He appealed earnestly and thoughtfully for EVERYONE to support him, and he took the time to be both honest and stark in his assesments about the problems that faced America at the time, that it would take a while and cooperation to get things back on track and then he lucidly laid out real concrete plans with details of how that could be done.

He didn't try to villify the opposition, he tried to court it and make love to it.

He din't try to ram things through, he took his time and felt educating people first would pay real dividends.

He won a lot of hearts and minds...from the opposition, and he kept their loyalty.

Obama is loosing hearts and minds by simply attacking his opposition, trying to discredit them, and to keep his core supporters online by simply offering them vague promises of hope.

He is not a skilled statesman, he's really just a political activist and protest organizer and he's running his White House in that fashion and it really is allienating people whether you like it or not, and can accept it or not, and can agree with why it is really alienating people.

He basically is going about everything the worst possible way, and it really is showing up on the streets in worsening ways.

Take away his cult of personality, and the media hype, and all you have is a one term Senator who never passed a law, who has President really has not done anything except hand out a lot of big checks at the tax payers expense to the richest corporations in the world owned by the richest people in the world, and promise you Health Care that he didn't even have the skill or ideas to craft a Bill for.

Now I have no idea what impresses you about this guy, but more and more people are decidedly not impressed, and yes he won the election, but the campaign is now over, he actually has to perform as President and he is doing a piss poor job to the point that if it weren't so criminally blatant it would be laughable.

All he is doing is dividing the country and he lacks the social skills and political acumen to get the job done.

Look to history Hunka, this is not the American way, and it's playing really poorly on the streets of America to people who aren't kids, and aren't minorities, and aren't dyed in the wool socialist/democrat/liberals.

No, you voted for Obama because you are a partisan as did a lot of other partisans.

Obama would have not gotten elected if the independents and moderates that were PO'd at Bush didn't vote for dem's out of spite, or a bunch of people that didn't even show up to vote because they didn't like either candidate.

____________________________

On topic,

The fact is if Bush's press secretary said something like this the media would be in an up roar, it would be front page news for a week.

The only time I've ever heard the phrase "... on thin-ice" is was always meant as a threat.

I'm not going to sit here and let this admin, who is trying to get people to rat out people and turn them into the White House, sending in Union Jackboots to beat people up, try to rewrite the meaning of the phrase "... on thin-ice". (the "..." should be subsisted with a name or a term that describes a lot of people)

I just call it like I see it, and from what I see this is a dictatorship in the making.
