Obama Claims He Never Sought Media Spotlight, Unlike Cruz
 
video at link (barfworthy performance)

When asked if he had set a precedent during his time in the Senate that Ted Cruz is now following, President Obama answered:

“If you recall, when I came into the Senate my attitude was, I should just keep a pretty low profile in the Senate and just do the work... I didn’t go around courting the media, and I certainly didn’t go around trying to shut down the government.”

“And so I recognize that in today’s media age, being controversial, taking controversial positions, rallying the most extreme parts of your base–whether it’s left or right–is a lot of times the fastest way to get attention or raise money. But it’s not good for government. It’s not good for the people we’re supposed to be serving.” 5 Oct 2013, 1:11 PM PDT
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

Says the guy who has never seen a microphone he didn't like... including the 2004 DNC where he was the keynote.

Low profile... right.

He's mentally ill.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Maybe, but I notice, in the past few years, that these liberals will just come out to the microphone and lie their asses off, because they know nobody will call them on it.  Wasserman-Schultz, Reid, Pelosi, Obama.  They do it in hopes that their lies will permeate national discourse.  I think it only works on the LoFos though.

Liberals believe the end justifies the means, so when they lie, the media glosses over it. After all, they lie, as well.

"LoFos" - I like that. It's a useful shorthand.

Might even be better in Spanish, e.g. - "Y ahora, presentando Senor Barack Obama y Los LoFos!"   
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Funniest thing I have ever seen concerning Democrat just outright lying with no compunction or any thought at all. They just outright lie directly in your face.


It is actually funny. You will enjoy this I'm sure.

That's why Obama has never been on the View, Oprah, Leno, Letterman, etc.,  he :silly: :woohoo: doesn't want to have his image over-exposed.  By the way, doesn't anyone know when he plans to be on Al-Jazeera TV? :shrug:

Good one, ranger! I sat through that entire video, and was again amazed how that woman could spiel so much bs, and barely be questioned on her lies. I hope S. Florida kicks her arse out, but she lies so seriously, that I doubt Floridians are smart enough to can her.

Yes, but unfortunately there are far too many of them out there.

And some of them...........perhaps most of them............are too intelligent to fall for this garbage.

Especially after a shooting..
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

Or after they get a 72% Obamacare subsidy for themselves and go on Hannity and say they didn't? :thud:

Ha!  Has he ever done any work that you know about?  Obama is a professional campaigner but that's about it.
