It's official: Obama refuses to recognize the 2014 election results

And he doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks.

It's hard to imagine a more complete shellacking than the one Barack Obama took in the 2014 mid-term elections. Yes, I know, his name was not on the ballot. But his policies were, as he himself told us. And Democrat candidates for the House and Senate got their clocks cleaned across the country for supporting these ill-conceived policies.

With a loud and clear voice, the public elected a Republican majority as a way of saying, "Enough!"

Enough wealth redistribution. Enough government health care. Enough regulation. Enough hostility toward business. Enough class warfare. Enough spending. Enough foreign policy weakness.

Enough!

So as Obama took the podium for last night's State of the Union address, you might have thought we'd hear some humility from a man so thoroughly chastised by the public. Then again, if you've paid much attention to Obama these past six years, you probably wouldn't expect that at all. It's all about him, all the time. And if he's faced with a Congress determined to take the country in a different direction, then Obama will only double down on his partisan, confrontational, big-government instincts.

And that's what he did last night. When not taking partisan jabs at Republicans and wealthy people, or threatening to veto legislation the public wants (like the Keystone XL pipeline), he took his big-government pandering to a whole new level:

 

 

Obama thinks the purpose of government is to decide who gets what in society, and to take from those not favored to give to those who are. He has convinced a lot of people that if they don't have what they want, it's because someone else has too much, and they should look to government to confiscate from the haves and redistribute to the have-nots.

But apparently he hasn't convinced enough people, as the massive Republican majorities in attendance last night demonstrates. Some of the public can be fooled by liberalism for a time, but when they see the results of it, they usually came to their senses. As they did in November.

But Obama doesn't care what the voters think. He doesn't care what Congress thinks. He doesn't care what anyone thinks. He knows that none of these proposals are going to pass, but he also figures that if he proposes them, he'll rile up both his supporters and his critics and start an argument that might benefit him and his side politically.

And if Obama benefits, then Obama figures he's done his job. That's our president!

Will the media portray him as an obstructionist?

Exact same thing can be said of the GOP.

It would be more accurate to say that the federal government refuses to recognize the results of the 2014 election.

” .With a loud and clear voice, the public elected a Republican majority as a way of saying, “Enough!”Enough wealth redistribution. Enough government health care. Enough regulation. Enough hostility toward business. Enough class warfare. Enough... “

Blah blah.....and in less than 24 hours after the election, the GOP started back pedaling on everything. Why should Obama worry about anything?

That was my thought. The power structure in the GOP refuses to acknowledge that constitutional conservatives received a mandate to save the US. Instead, they're working with Obama to destroy what's left of the US.

Do you think Barry and his fat A$$ wife are going to leave our White House? Or will the military have to intervene and pull their worthless butts out of there.

Call me crazy and paranoid but I wouldn’t put it past this barrel of snakes to attempt to invoke martial law some time prior to 2016 election. After what I’ve seen for 6 years it wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

His ego will not permit him to understand he was personally rejected.

You would think Soetoro would have been chastened after the Dems defeat in the midterm elections.

To the contrary, he now feels liberated. No longer needs to cater to Dems in red states anymore-—very few of the left anyways-—.

He will only get more radical these last two years in office. Has nothing to lose. No more elections to worry about. He cares nothing of Clintons or how they’re positioned for 2016.

He now will implement as much of his radical agenda as possible.

The only thing more scary than Soetoro are the people who voted for him. They will still be around, long after he’s left office.

I am reminded of the scene from Citizen Kane when Kane loses the gubernatorial election. His newspaper has two sets of banner headlines prepared, depending on the outcome: one read, "KANE WINS!", and the other, "FRAUD AT POLLS!" Barack Obama cannot internally compute the possibility that he and/or his policies could be rejected; there must be some other reason the Democrats were diselected last November.

Can’t be bothered with keeping track of them Congressional races. I’m too busy with my pen and my phone. Or to quote Hillary, “What difference does it make, anyway?”
