For Obama, it’s always personal

Shortly after posting this piece, I wondered that the president cast Republican opposition to his policies in strictly personal terms.  In his 60 Minutes interview, the Democrat contended the Republican strategy was to oppose anything he’s for:

“Anything Obama’s for, we’re against, because that’s our best chance of winning an election,”

As if it’s all about him and his ambitions.  You’d think a man billed as so bright could appreciate that Republicans may well oppose his programs on philosophical grounds.  Or on financial ones.  As McCain put it, “WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS CRAP!

Well, at least he’s not emulating a rising mafia boss:



  1. the Democrat contended the Republican strategy was to oppose anything he’s for… “… because that’s [the Republicans’] best chance of winning an election,”

    Wait a minute! Isn’t he onto something? He’s simply failed to understand or examine the cause, which is His terrible policies. WHY would opposing Obama’s policies win people elections? Because those policies, according to me and to majorities of Americans, are so mind-bogglingly awful.

    In related news, opposition to Big Government is now rising – among rank and file Democrats:

  2. I don’t agree with Obama’s policies because he’s black. It’s that simple. It has nothing to do with bailouts, corruption, Fast & Furious, crony capitalism, rewarding failure, further engorgement of Leviathan, tera-buck annual deficits, the certainty that the country won’t survive much more of this… it’s just ’cause he’s black. According to Glenn Beck (gasbag), if I were to vote for Newt, it would confirm it.

    If Obama were lily white, I’d be delirious with joy at the improvements we’ve seen since he was inaugurated. (Liberals can stop reading now.)

    If everything Obama said was true – that the rich are raping the rest of us – his prescriptions would still be wrong.

  3. Here’s a thought: Why doesn’t Obama propose an ambition set of policies for tax reform, deregulation, and deficit reduction and see if Republicans go for it. If they don’t, it will probe his hypothesis is correct.
