Obama Is A Failed President Elect! Sacrifice is His Favorite Word!

Obama on This Week with G. Stephanopoulos 01/11/09...this is part 2 of three videos. This is the one where Obama speaks about everyone is going to have to make sacrifices.

Obama Calls for 'Grand Bargain' on Economy: 'Everybody's Going to Have to Give'

ABC news blog from the show "This Week"

by George Stephanopoulos

In my exclusive interview with Barack Obama airing tomorrow on This Week, the president-elect told me that fixing our economy over the long term will require sacrifice from every American and scaling back some of his campaign promises.

"Our challenge is going to be identifying what works and putting more money into that, eliminating things that don’t work, and making things that we have more efficient. But I’m not suggesting, George, I want to be realistic here, not everything that we talked about during the campaign are we going to be able to do on the pace we had hoped," Obama told me in his first interview since arriving back in Washington, DC as president-elect.

I asked the president-elect, "At the end of the day, are you really talking about over the course of your presidency some kind of grand bargain? That you have tax reform, healthcare reform, entitlement reform including Social Security and Medicare, where everybody in the country is going to have to sacrifice something, accept change for the greater good?"

"Yes," Obama said.

"And when will that get done?" I asked.

"Well, right now, I’m focused on a pretty heavy lift, which is making sure we get that reinvestment and recovery package in place. But what you described is exactly what we’re going to have to do. What we have to do is to take a look at our structural deficit, how are we paying for government? What are we getting for it? And how do we make the system more efficient?"

"And eventually sacrifice from everyone?" I asked.

"Everybody’s going to have to give. Everybody’s going to have to have some skin in the game," Obama said.

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

I am already making a sacrifice, having to know and see and hear Barack Hussein Obama as President of the USA for 4 years. Not my President but for those that voted for him or want him.

When do the Government servants suffer and Sacrifice, Congress got their raises and Barney Frank and Dodd, Pelosi, Reid etc. and all the other guilty will not be punished for what they did that got us in this stupid situation.

Obama and the Democrats can suffer first, and then those who drank the kool aid and elected the Kenyan Socialist.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Is he going to sacrifice? How about that fancy private school the girls go to? Wouldn't it be less expensive to home school them? Nah, he ain't gonna suffer any. It's all of us who'll have to eat this monster crap sandwich he and Biden will create and we'll have to be happy to have that bite. God he's an idiot. He has no clue what he's up against. And shame on those who believed in his pack of lies and deceit. He said those things just to get elected and we all know it!

Sometimes I wonder if it isn't as simple as his campaign was hatched one afternoon in the locker room after hoops, and planned out over pre-golf waffles. Now that they have it, they don't know what to do with it. I say we, because he's puppet.

What else could explain his keeping a few Bush peeps for his cabinet, rounded out by Clinton peeps cause they know the way to the squash court already and his hoops buddies from Chicago.

Or when they said President, he thought they meant "Presentdent" and he could just phone that in like his Senatorial career.

For two years he denied, this was going to cost us big time. He denied, he was going to raise Taxes, he said, everyone would get a tax cut. Now he is telling us, that was all campaign rhetoric just to get the vote of the 'sheep', well he got it. Now the sheep are going to pay through the nose.

Everybody is going to have some 'skin' in this Except Barry and his chosen people. In other words if you work for a living, you are going to be Heavy burdened with Taxes, the likes you have never imagined. All the while his Kids are going to a premier school at your expense. His wife gets a 30,000 thousand dollar Necklace and you can't afford hamburger to feed your family. This is change all right...Right out of the Karl Marx playbook. In addition, Ried, Pelosi and the rest of those leftist bastards whittle away at what remaining freedoms we still have and by the time they are done we will have no money or freedom.

This is why he was elected ? This aint what the 64 Million stooges voted for. I hope they enjoy every friggin minute of this, 'Movin on down the obama way.'

No reason to even try to have a dialogue, here. WT's sentiments mirror mine exactly. As do Lynn's, Eden's and Mark's. Anybody else?

Posted by: BT in SA at January 12, 2009 08:42 AM

On second thought, I do have something to add. WT - if it is too troubling, by all means feel free to delete it. In my mind I keep thinking that this scenario can only have a decent and good ending if something bad happens. And by that I mean something really awful... Say, tragic, even. Not to a lot of people - not like a 9/11 or anything even remotely like that. Just to one family - well, okay, maybe more than one family. I know it doesn't make me a good person to wish bad things on others, but in this particular instance, I am willing to make an exception and forgive myself!

The Baracksheviks are proud, and Lenin and Marx are smiling from BELOW! Welcome comrades to the 50 Un-United Welfare States of Socialism!

Will the 40+% who pay no taxes sacrifice? Will the illegal aliens sacrifice? Will the gangbangers sacrifice? Will Michelle sacrifice? Will Bill Ayers sacrifice?

I believe Obama's "everybody is going to have some skin in the game" like I believed his campaign rhetoric.

Higher taxes, inflation and loss of personal freedoms will be the real sacrifices. He won't list these.

OK! I am willing to sacrifice. I will sacrifice Barack Obama as President and CIC. I will sacrifice Joe Biden as VP and Obama gaffe machine. I will sacrifice Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. I will sacrifice Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. I will sacrifice even more and throw in John Murtha, Dick Durban, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and many others in Congress.

What Obama really means when he says everybody has to sacrifice.

Posted by: Les at January 12, 2009 03:46 PM

I'm with you Les, sacrificing O'Vomit and his commie stooge pals for a better America seems reasonable to me.

Posted by: cuchieddie at January 12, 2009 04:52 PM

Lynn, exactly, he isn't going to sacrifice anything and neither will Pelosi etc. of the world.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 12, 2009 08:01 PM

Eden, yes, he is a total mess. Just from the little child psych I had in college, one can tell he is way too hung up on his hate for whites it showed in all he said in his books for one thing. Anyone that messed up should not hold office, they cannot make clear decisions and his attitude stinks to high heaven.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 12, 2009 08:04 PM

Mark, I agree, he is so full of it and himself. Those that voted for him better eat this up every bit of it and not one complaint, becauase they asked for it, we sure as heck didn't.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 12, 2009 08:07 PM

BT in SA, no way would I delete what you said...LOL I agree with you 100%.
Well said BT in SA, thank you.

Darth, yes, Lenin and Marx must be celebrating. waaaaaaaaa

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 12, 2009 08:12 PM

Tom, see you hit that right, I am very concerned about the personal freedoms we have had. Obama resents so much and will take it out on the citizens.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 12, 2009 08:14 PM

Les,hahaha I LOVE it, that would be ok with me.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 12, 2009 08:17 PM
