Obama warns of 'perilous path' for US

NEW YORK (AP) -- President Barack Obama warned Monday that the United States is headed down a "perilous path" if its leaders cannot move quickly and responsibly to help people get back to work.

Obama, speaking at an exclusive Park Avenue fundraiser for his re-election and for other Democrats, promoted his plans to spur hiring and put a dent in the long-term debt. He proposes to pay for his ideas in large part by raising taxes on wealthy Americans and corporations.

Republican leaders have offered strong opposition to his economic program.

`'If we don't succeed, then I think this country is going to go down a very perilous path," Obama told his audience in brief remarks in front of reporters.

He said that meant conditions would get worse for everyone, rich and poor.

Obama spoke at the home of Ralph Schlosstein and Jane Hartley. About 60 people paid $35,800 each to attend.

I am in pissed mode tonight. How dare he give another blah,blah speech! Sit you butt in your officer and get to work. I picture Reagan at his desk calling all in congress to get in his office to work out how to help the country. This SOB is just doing what he can to collapse us and worse, stir the pot to the point of boiling over! Pray we make it to 2012 and the idiots stay home.

Some warned of a perilous path prior to the 2008 election; the warning was not heeded.

When I was young (many years ago) I was deceived...

I was amazed by the white middle class Koolaid drinkers last presidential election- people who had never voted before but felt awakened by an angel of light.

The power of satan is great, and deserves full attention.

Yes; the one that accelerated in November of 2008, when an ineligible Socialist token black was put in the White House to destroy this "capitalist system" which has been spent into oblivion with handouts of borrowed money.

And he's still got over a year to do as much damage to the world as he possibly can. In fact, he's moving into overdrive, because he knows his time is short.

He’s actually right... but for the wrong reason.

Barry’s “country before party” statement is a jingoistic way of saying “nationalism”. Socialism is demonstrated daily by the administration. He employs the political power of labor unions, e.g. the “worker”. He courts racists in the White House, and clearly he has an anti-white agenda. Also Barry uses veiled and not so veiled references to violence, and has explicitly stated the desire to have his own political militia. His primary tool is leveraging political favors to busnesses that “play ball”, and crush the others with punative new legislation. Much of Barry’s ideology as spelled out in “Dreams” is his My Struggle which galvanized his electorate. What that all spells is left as an exercise to the reader.

Let me see if I’ve got this straight:

1. Obama spends 3 years giving trillions of borrowed Chinese money away to his union, Acorn and Planned Parenthood buddies;

2. After a decade of working behind the scenes to destroy the housing market, his Dimwitted friends in Congress pass even more legislation and regulations to completely destroy the economy and ensure no hiring and increased unemployment.

3. As a result of his nim-rod actions for the past 3 years, the country is on a collision course with disaster—not much we can do to stop it, no matter what we do now, thanks to 1 and 2.

4. He sets it up so that when the SHTF (and it will), it will all be “because they didn’t pass his stupid “JOBS” bill.”

5. MSM and his ‘people’ will believe 4, and blame Bush and the Republican Congress. If he times it right, it will all happen in October ‘12 (surprise!?), and because of the ‘civil unrest’ he will have to remain in office while we postpone elections.

Please tell me where I’m wrong. PLEASE.

There is so much stuff coming at us these days that one must really take caution not to get bounced by it.

You have your gut, and you have your Spirit; they are not always in sync. The animal wants one solution but the Spirit may dictate another...

You probably know better than I what I’m trying to say.

Well this just proves that a even a broken clock is right twice a day. While I will agree that we are headed down a perilous path, it is BO that is causing the path to be perilous.

I live just around the block on Madison.

I came out of the subway home from work today, and they had closed it for people coming in and wanted them to walk all the way to 86th street. (we’re at the stop on 77th)

Ridiculous. I was like what the heck is going on at that building, now this makes sense.

Obama has always intended to cancel elections.

That has been his reelection strategy from day one.

He tried very, very, hard to start a World War (which is what he really wants), someone more powerful than him called it off and told him to ‘stop it’.

Now, the only thing left is domestic violence and strife. But yes, there is no question the Kenyan wants to stop elections at all costs.

(remember....it is not his country. it is not his money, it is not 'his' people, he does not care in the least what he does to Americans)

I hope Kennedy and Kerry are eating this thing they inflicted on themselves...

"Obama warns of 'perilous path' for US"

BS - the US is on the path that HE AND HIS SOCIALIST PALS IN CONGRESS PUT US ON.

All he has to do to PARTIALLY FIX EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE is repeal everything Congress has passed since he went into office - THEN CUT GOVERNMENT SIZE by 50 percent across the board, and halt all government spending where ever possible.

This is all his - no one else's, other than his fellow Rats.

Barry warned that the US is headed down a perilous path...

because he’s got nothing to run on. The economy sucks and the stimulus
didn’t work. Solyndra is #1 example of the stimulus. Half a billion of
taxpayer money down the rat hole.

So like any good community organizer (Alinsky disciple), he is going to create a distraction.
Look OVER THERE.
Stir up class warfare.
Stir up anger at Republicans for blocking anything Dear Leader wants.
Never mind the Senate Democrats are not saying yes.
He did a putrid job as President for 3 years while his party held both
houses of Congress.

Yet, it’s those mean people — the Repubs who have only been in office
6 months and hold only the House.
They are the reason your life and job and foreclosure sucks.

SO vote for me. I am Barack Obama. Worship me. I am God. I am the
gift to America.

GOd help the American people to vote this incompetent cocaine user out.
