Obama Says His Talking Time Does Not Count "Because I'm the President" - Video 2/25/10


Here is video of President Obama at the "Health Care Summit" saying he did not count his time in the division of time between Democrats and Republicans because "I'm the President." He said it as if he is some impartial observer. In fact, Democrats spoke about twice as much as Republicans when you count Obama's time. The last time I looked Obama is a Democrat!

To dominate the time, what Obama is doing is that he comments after a Democrat speaks, and again after a Republican speaks. In effect, the Republicans are being dominated "2 to 1", if not in actual minutes in the end, then by Obama's commenting on every comment.

And that's the problem. Your the President and your behavior is unacceptable. Count yourself gone in 2012!

Buy an apostrophe, Moe, and rejoin the other two stooges in the rightwing corner.

I see we have another insightful contribution from Larry S.

There is something disturbing in regards to Obama's constant reminding of people that "I am the president". I've seen him do this on several occasions.

Yeah, it is disturbing. Why is it that rightwingers can't seem to understand that Obama is the President? Why is it that this President needs to remind people that he won the election, not the doddering old fool that ran against him? The Republican Party lost control of both houses of Congress, and the Republican ticket for President and Vice President got creamed in 2008, yet the GOP has this mistaken sense of entitlement, that they're still in charge and should be treated as such.

America rejected rightwingers in 2006 and 2008, so ACCEPT IT. If you want to try to win elections in 2010 and 2012, go for it. But show a little humility between now and then, for a change. WE DON'T LIKE MANY OF YOUR IDEAS. So come up with different ideas, or convince us that your ideas are better than we think. But don't think you control things anymore.

John McCain is not a "doddering old fool" as you describe him. He is an American hero who gave 5 1/2 years of his life as a POW in service to his country, and he deserves the gratitude and respect of every American - whether you agree with his politics or not.

He also got nearly 60 million votes in the last election. Obama got nearly 70 million which makes him PRESIDENT - not MONARCH. Conservatives oppose him on principle and on ideology, and we have every right to do so. The fact he won an election does not mean he gets a free pass to do what he wants.

Besides, Republicans CANNOT stop him from doing what he wants to do. For a full year he had 60 votes in the Senate and a huge House majority. He has not been able to get his agenda passed because DEMOCRATS are afraid of the American People - whom they know do not agree with an agenda this radical. Otherwise, they could have passed Cap and Trade and ObamaCare in two weeks and put it on Obama's desk.

It's the American People who are getting in the way of Obama's radical transformation of America.

Remember, in the next election, it will only take 5 million people to change their minds about Obama and vote the other way to sweep him out of office just as fast as he was swept in. I think we've already reached that number and more.

Oh, I'm not debating McCain's military service. He was a fool long before he joined the Navy. He never would have gotten into the Naval Academy except that his daddy and his grandaddy were admirals; Annapolis HAD to take him. And what did Johnny prove at the Naval Academy? That he didn't belong: he finished 894th in a class of 899. As a naval aviator, he proved that he wasn't much of an aviator; he crashed 5 planes.

As for your political science lesson, Brian, save it. I don't think many people outside the rightwing ranks suggest for a moment that we have a mmonarchy. But no President has ever had to deal with the 24/7 dogging of his entire Presidency by the rightwingnut blogosphere the way Obama has. His every move has been constantly criticized by you and other bloggers. When was the last time you posted something that supported the President? Even in your perverse fantasy world, nobody should be wrong ALL the time!

Don't treat him like a king; treat him like the President.

Because he is. For at least three more years, and probably seven.

John McCain stood awfully tall for this country as a POW. His class rank means nothing. You don't just respect someone for their class rank unless you are a Leftist who loves Obama because he is just "so bright it is a burden" to him (Valerie Jarrett's words).

There is not much I support Obama on because our worldview and principles are just so opposite. He did send the additional troops to Afghanistan - which was absolutely right - but it took him three months to decide to send reinforcements to help our soldiers already there! So that is a very mixed bag. When the general you chose asks you for the troops, that's not a three-month decision.

He has spent most of his Presidency on Cap and Trade (which would devastate the economy further) and trying to engineer a Government takeover of Health Care.

In my view, there is not much to commend. I know that is disturbing for someone like yourself Larry/Diogenes, who tried so hard to be supportive of and respectful of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney while they were in office.

At least I don't call Obama a criminal, or consider him to be illegitimate as President, as so many of the Left did to George W. Bush and Cheney. Obama is our President and what he is doing is not criminal. I just totally disagree with him, as do millions of Americans.
