Obama says we are "not thinking straight"

  1. I Googled the context because I don't like to be fed two words at a time:

    "Now, I say that to first of all remind us of how far we’ve come over the last 20 months. An economy that was contracting is now growing. We’ve had nine consecutive months of private sector job growth. The financial sector is stable.

    And so in some ways what is remarkable is how despite this body blow that the country took, the country once again has proven more resilient and more adaptable and more dynamic than I think a lot of folks give us credit for. But it’s also to remind you that we’ve got so much more work to do. People out there are still hurting very badly, and they are still scared.

    And so part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared. And the country is scared, and they have good reason to be.

    Our job, then, is to make sure that even as we make progress, that we are also giving people a sense of hope and a vision for the future; a sense that we will get through these tough times, and the country will come out stronger for it, having gone through this trauma."

    Translation: He's losing control over the sheeple that voted him and his corrupt/inept cronies into office. His desperation is showing.
  3. Littledaviedumbass' desperation is showing too... almost as if his survival depends on the U.S. being a socialist welfare state.
  4. Sounds sort of like the used car salesman when you tell him you'll look elsewhere. Since the answer can never be no, it's always YOUR fault that you can't see what's right in front of you.

    Hopey is so used to bs'ing his way thru life, it didn't even take more than year to see thru this charlatan.
  5. Odds are very high that this guy lives off of the taxpayer and so will do anything to vote for his very own sustenance.
  6. Thanks. So in other words, Americans are so "scared" they're not thinking straight about the upcoming elections, President Obama said over the weekend, as he sought to explain why voters are turning to Republican candidates.
  7. 20 months of Obamanomics and Obamanation is good reason for sane, productive working people to be scared.

    Not Thinking Straight, My Foot

  9. The facts he says? Here are some facts:
    1. Blaming the other guy has lost it's effectiveness.
    2. The financial terrorists that brought this upon us still walk free and are doing better than ever.
    3. This congress is as corrupt and ineffective as any congress has ever been. Not only has the swamp not been drained, the scum is flourishing.
    The message to the president and congress is real clear, they just aren't seeing it. We're not scared, we're fucking pissed off. Big difference!
