Calling for cooperation, Obama engages in confrontation
WASHINGTON (AP) — Amid appeals for bipartisanship, President Barack Obama in just three days has provoked Republicans on issues as disparate as immigration, Wall Street and the Keystone XL pipeline — a combative mix of defense and offense that underscores Washington’s political realignment.
Sensing a Republican retreat, Obama is headlining a Miami town hall on Wednesday, enlisting his Latino base of support to increase pressure on GOP lawmakers who want to tie spending on the Homeland Security Department to repeal of his immigration executive actions.
On Tuesday, he vetoed GOP legislation that would have forced construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. And on Monday he proposed tougher rules on financial brokers who help manage retirement accounts, over Wall Street objections.
Three days, three hardball plays.
Such aggressive activism delights his supporters but irritates the Republicans who now control both chambers of Congress. SOURCE
Talk, talk and MORE talk, empty promises, obfuscation and outright lies, and that’s from the GOP.
We’re going to do this, we’re going to do that, we’re going to do the other yet all the GOP does is get their heads handed to them by a Democratic minority and a President that is, at least in MY opinion, not even eligible to be President of the United States.
And all the while Obama grins like a jackass and laughs at the GOP.
Indeed, Obama on Tuesday summoned a bipartisan group of lawmakers to the White House for a private meeting on how to address modernizing juvenile justice, sentencing and incarceration policies. And on Thursday, Obama planned to draw attention to the economic benefits of trade and exports in a series of interviews at the White House.
“Let’s try to focus on some of things that we have in common and deliver real results,” he told governors of both parties who attended a White House luncheon Monday.
A bipartisan group of lawmakers, let me explain what that means; a group of Dems that will do the bidding of Obama, regardless what it may be and a group of Dem-Lite that will do the bidding of Obama, no matter what that might be. Dem-Lite, better known as RINOs, Republicans In Name Only.
Obama hauls out the *bipartisan* card every time he needs something and sure enough, Obama wants something that even his Dem base won’t give him, so he makes nice with the GOP, shakes hands, treats them to lunch, a few drinks and voila, instant RINO love fest with the most dangerous and destructive person to ever sit in the Oval Office.
