Alinsky-style out in the open!
"This week's visit was Obama's third trip to the St. Louis area since he took office last year.
At Wednesday's speech at St. Charles High, Obama was joined by several local Democratic officials. One noticeable absence was Democratic Senate hopeful and Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, who has attempted to distance herself from Obama. Carnahan, the state's chief security regulator, was in Washington on Wednesday talking to lawmakers about financial reform. ...
Obama pledged to keep fighting.
"I don't get worn down. I wear them down," the president said. "Don't give up on me now we're just getting started!"
...Outside, several hundred protesters representing a wide spectrum of viewpoints stood on nearby street corners, chanting slogans and yelling at one another through bullhorns.
A large group of local Tea Party activists gathered on one corner, while a smaller group of Obama supporters set up shop on another corner. Across the street was a mixed bag of protesters and activists who seemed less vocal.
...Hours before Obama's speech, as many as 2,000 people gathered for a Republican rally at the St. Charles Convention Center.
"I have a question that I respectfully ask of my president," Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder said. "What part of 'no' don't you understand?" ....

In my best NY slang...wear THIS down!!
I know he will be changing his rhetoric in 2012.
There was a time, when Obama was first elected, when he could have had Republicans eating out of his hand, if he had only attempted to govern by consensus.

This isn’t about HEALTH:
President Obamas Regulatory Czar, chief of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein believes and espouses that the State owns your body and can, at what it considers sufficient need, use it how it wishes to, up to and including harvesting your organs without your permission.
In his eyes were all merely meat for the State.
I will not say what I truly think of Obama, as it would not only get my post pulled but could possibly result in me being banned from posting to FR. But it involves a word which rhymes with “brass vole”.
“Wearing down the opposition” is something kids attempt to do to their parents, when asking to do something bad.
I’d be afraid if this was a basketball game. It’s not.
Ah, but the real question is what will he do when the whole ordeal starts to cut into his vacation time, his golf time, his state dinners and the like?
This bratty child is about to see what it is going to cost him. He is no longer fooling the people and he thinks he doesn’t have to answer to anybody, but the Demon party is going down for what they are doing to this country.
The most partisan President, ever. It will cost him. And us.
Tea Party “activists”; Obama “supporters”

It doesn’t make the critical point, would not get the attention that is essential.
Youve got to ask yourself one question, Obummer (ptui!): Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?
What a fool he is! Does he really think that poking the majority with this arrogance will help him? FUBO!
Perfect. Clint Eastwood for President, and so the pendulum swings.
