Obama knocks GOP lawmakers again at black caucus dinner
upi.com ^ | September 21, 2013

Posted on 09/21/2013 7:57:57 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

President Obama used the podium at the Congressional Black Caucus' annual dinner Saturday to again rip Republicans for trying to defund U.S. healthcare reform.

Obama told those gathered at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center for the caucus foundation's Phoenix Awards dinner he wanted to speak "as clearly as I can -- it's not going to happen." ....

"It is time for these folks to stop governing by crisis" and focus on "what really matters," Obama said, reiterating that the federal debt ceiling is not up for negotiation because the country is obligated to pay its bills. ....

Referring to the recent 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream," the president said equality has to go "hand in hand with economic opportunity." He told the like-minded crowd, "we've got to pick up the torch of economic justice" while preventing the country from rolling back from its civil rights gains. ....

Children, he said, should be able to walk down the street "free from the fear that they will be struck down by a stray bullet," Obama said.

Was this before or after he had his “emotional breakdown”?

Why doesn’t he address Congress? Why not debate, since he’s so brilliant?

He’s not preaching to the choir;
he’s hiding beneath their robes.

Great video of B. Hussein acting out his “REVENGE” campaign statement.

BTW, could you please post the video of B. Hussein kicking down a door after one of his typical “I hate everybody” speeches?

Guess Obama is to stupid to understand the reluctance to increase the debt limit is an attempt to rein in govt spending. Repbs know the govt must pay its debts, but to just keep raising the debt limit continues to increase the debt.

Love the graphic but noabma’s head is on backwards. It’s okay if your response is, “I know that.” :)

Doesn’t this temper-tantrum by B. Hussein warrant a review of his Top Secret Security Status?

The perp at the Washington Naval Yard last week was a lot more composed than child-tantrum B. Hussein.

Hey Zer0, tell that to Rahm, and tell him to keep the “local folks” away from the Zer0/Mooch “hood”, before you move back with your kids and dogs!

As a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist, Hussein knows that you have to fragment society before you can have a Leninist revolution.

“as clearly as I can — it’s not going to happen.”

I remember Obam-me stating the exact same thing during the debates regarding the sequester. His credibility is beyond repair.

Perfect audience, given that Ubama is President of the Black Democrats of the United States of America.

I pity the poor waiters and waitresses at this function, considering they had to work the whole night for a very demanding crowd and then undoubtedly got stiffed for their tips.

Thanks!

Yes indeedy, the Democrat’s POS CEO needs to have his Top Security status revoked for throwing childish temper tantrums as documented in these two videos.

Keep on posting these two Videos on various Obama threads, cuz The Media ain’t a-never gunna do it!
