More and More Threats From The DEMOCRAT Dictator Obama

Obama: Democratic voter apathy 'inexcusable'



Admonishing his own party, President Barack Obama says it would be "inexcusable" and "irresponsible" for unenthusiastic Democratic voters to sit out the midterm elections, warning that the consequences could be a squandered agenda for years.

"People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up," Obama told Rolling Stone in an interview to be published Friday. The president told Democrats that making change happen is hard and "if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place."

The midterm elections are in five weeks and polling shows that Republicans, out of power at the White House and on Capitol Hill, have a much more excited base of supporters than Democrats. Obama, campaigning this week in four states, is in a sprint to restore the voter passion that helped him win office.

Yet in his attempt to light a fire under supporters, Obama comes across as fired up himself about how many backers fail to acknowledge the progress he sees. He said the glass-half-empty view among many progressive voters can be a debilitating force that distracts them from the real worry: Republicans.

The GOP is poised to win seats in the House, if not control of the chamber, and gain ground in the Senate, too.

"It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election," Obama said.

The president has been telling Democrats to "wake up" and recognize that he and the Democratic-run Congress have delivered on promises, from a new health care law to tougher rules for Wall Street to more aid for college students. Obama wants disenchanted supporters to see that Republican wins in November would undermine the ability of Democrats to get the unfinished business done, from climate change legislation to allowing gays to serve openly in the military.

What emerges in the magazine story is a stern, lecturing tone from Obama.

It comes mainly at the end of the interview. Obama had wrapped the lengthy Q-and-A session, according to the magazine, but then returned unprompted to make one more impassioned point and unleash on the enthusiasm gap. He portrayed a clear choice between an administration that despite some warts has helped advance its agenda, and a Republican Party that would offer disastrous policies for the economy and civil liberties.

"The idea that we've got a lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic base, that people are sitting on their hands complaining, is just irresponsible," he said in the interview. He said Democrats should be thinking about what's at stake this election "if they want to move forward over the next two years or six years or 10 years."

The Rolling Stone interview was conducted Sept. 17. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the story, titled "Obama Fights Back."

Obama expresses plenty of disappointment over how Republicans made a tactical decision from the start to oppose him, but also offers some "grudging admiration" for its political effectiveness in keeping the GOP united. He said the resulting slog between Republicans and himself — legislative delays and political fighting reminiscent of the Washington he ran against — has worsened public skepticism of government and eroded the feeling of hope that surrounded his election.

The president said he keeps a checklist of his campaign promises and that he has met, by his account, about 70 percent of them.

As for the rest: "Well, that's what the next two years is for, or maybe the next six."

Obama would need to win re-election in 2012 for that latter timeframe to occur.


LOL and this insult from Hanoi John Kerry

John Kerry: Dems Vulnerable Because Voters Are Stupid


Wild Thing's comment........

And the blame "everyone else but me" game continues! LOL! His own voters!
Obama the leftist liar that hung out with scumbag bombers and Chicago crooks. Biden told a 'Rat audience yesterday to "quit whining". I hope these guys keep chastising their base. Obama, you need more than just registered RATS to vote for your Commie-Pinko friends in November.

I'm a conservative, and I'm an American, and this creepy punk is destroying my country.

I'll continue to do what I believe to be best, and will fight with my heart soul and mind for this country and conservative principles. What libs fail to grasp is we don’t want a damn agenda. Just run the country intelligently and in a manner consistant with our founding fathers.

I Love the Smell of Democrat Desperation in the Morning. Smells like Victory.

We have never had any president do this, attack the American people, attack their own base, threaten all the times Obama has done that, all of these things. I wish someone would write an article about how many times Obama has done this and put the many quotes in it then have a psychologist add to the article of what kind of mental case obama is.

I know I posted last year something about how he has a chip on his shoulder from his childhood etc. But there needs to be more done about his threats, they are constant and his arrogance and so many things that scream out to be brought up in the faces of all who voted for him.

"Jimmuh" Carter, in his "malaise" speech, blamed the American people for his inefficacy. I listened to his whining and was galvanized. I swore that this guy had to go and that I would do everything in my power to help make that happen. I was always interested in politics but Carter helped take me to a new level. We must continue to widen the "enthusiasm gap" so come November we will clip the wings of this third-world wannabe...

I'll bet they're planning for the day when they don't have to go through all of this election business. When they can just lay down their edicts to us.

The Dems are some resilient 'lil cockroaches. We never have enough firepower to bury these pests. I will never take for granted another election nor let them have one shred of peace. I've come to the conclusion that I don't even believe their panic. I want them out of office and there is no mercy rule here. Keep hitting them over and over until judgment day.

Willy, thanks for sharing that.

I know what you mean. I bought my first computer when Clinton was president. I would have when Carter was president except I don't think anyone I knew back then used a computer so it was not even something I thought of. I wish I had now. haha
