Obama: I Don’t Think Anyone Would Suggest I’ve Tried To Divide The Country

By the Full Metal Patriot

This post is going to have to come with a beverage alert, because the chutzpah of our President is apt to make you spit your coffee on your monitor.

 Earlier this week, Mitt Romney called out President Obama for conducting a “campaign of division and anger.”
Mitt Romney slammed Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday for making what Romney called an "outrageous charge" -- evidence, he said, of "an angry and desperate presidency."

Romney, using some of his most pointed language to date on the campaign trail, accused Obama of running a "campaign of division and anger and hate," and specifically objected to comments Biden had made earlier Tuesday to a crowd in Virginia.

The vice president suggested that Romney and the Republicans intend to roll back Wall Street regulations and "put y'all back in chains."

That remark drew a sharp response from Romney's campaign, which called it a "new low." Romney picked up on that line of attack at the campaign stop in Ohio, rolling out a speech he had spent  the last two days writing. In it, he pilloried the president’s record and accused him of being “intellectually exhausted.”

“His campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency,” Romney told a crowd of thousands gathered here at the final stop on his five-state bus tour. “Another outrageous charge came a few hours ago in Virginia. And the White House sinks a little bit lower. This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like."
President Obama — who hasn't taken any questions from the White House press corps in nearly two months — responded in a softball interview with Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell: (h/t: Real Clear Politics)

“Well, Nancy, you've been on the campaign trail with me for a day and a half [yeah because two days with Entertainment Tonight invalidates four years of divisiveness — FMP], and this is pretty typical, uh, of what we do. We’re going around the country, talking about, ‘How do we put people back to work? How do we improve our schools? How do we make sure that we’re producing American energy? How do we, uh,  lower our debt in a responsible way?’ And I don’t think you or anybody who’s been watching the campaign would suggest in any way we have, uh, you know, tried to divide the country. We’ve always tried to bring the country together.”
The most divisive president in my lifetime is now trying to deny the fact that ever since he entered the public arena, he has methodically employed the Alinsky Method to distract and divide Americans in order to get whatever he wants.
  Maybe President Obama has forgotten his many years of divisive tactics and is only thinking about how he's encouraged everyone to unite beneath his totalitarian banner of socialism…
  Obama's failure in office has been so spectacular, he can't possibly run on his record. And the President's re-election campaign has already been so dishonest and so filled with polarizing attacks, it's been called “one of the dirtiest in modern times.”

So no, Mr. President, I don't think anyone needs to suggest that you've tried to divide the country. Dividing the country is one of your few actual accomplishments, and it came from years of practice.

  1. President Golf Swing is old news. He has no substance to run on. The fact he is grasping for votes on Entertainment Tonight is very telling. He is toast in November.

  2. What a jackass! Is that why small business owners have signs posted saying, "Obama can kiss our a$$"? What a despicable, disgraceful, sorry person.

  3. Has everyone else taken note that every accusation against Romney describes exactly what Obama has done. Release "records", bankrupt Medicare,threaten seniors, budgetary malfeasance, breaks for Wall Street, etc...

    Every Obama ad is a distraction and accusation on a guilty subject by President Obama. The man is a pathelogical liar and to be frank the Democrat party deserves him.

  4. My take: these people have such a degree of arrogance that even when their words are belied by TV, radio, newspapers, and the Internet, they simply cannot believe that the people would disagree with them.

  5. Thanks for proving once again that Conservatives are spreading fear and hate.
    He is not a Marxist or a Communist.
    I knew when a black man would become President, slimeballs like you would demean this man, every change you get!
    This, more than any other single tactic, clearly proves that they are willing to lie and demagogue any act by President Obama no matter how much they themselves wish they had achieved it. If Obama invented a drug that cured cancer, I have no doubt that the Republicans would immediately sponsor a bill to outlaw it.
    The President painstakingly gave credit to all who participated in the mission that he personally approved against bin Laden, while protecting national security secrets far more scrupulously than the previous administration.
    These racists...YES! I calling these a-holes racist cause that's what they are... are dishonest piece of trash and a disgrace to the U.S. military.
    But since they hate the Black man in office, they are "Patriots" Please!

    Ain't it funny how Republicans are complaining because President Obama has not helped his brother while being ready to pounce if he does. I can just hear it now, President Obama is showing family favoritism/nepotism. These lines of BS make me sick because the whole point of them is to find SOMETHING, ANYTHING to criticize President Obama.

    Oh my GAWD, Obama is a terrible man for not supporting his beloved Kenyan half brother! Oh wait...has Barack EVER lived in Kenya? no. He lived in Indonesia for a few years, but the vast majority of his life was in the US. He hasn't gone to Kenya until briefly in 1987, and that was in order to get familiar with his Kenyan roots. Has he spent any time at all with his "brother" George? What do you think? George, along with the other seven half siblings, are related by blood only (the father, not the mother).

    Also, George Obama himself had said: "he's (Barack) not supposed to take care of me".

    Blow it our your ass, racists! You nor D'Souz don't give two squats about Obama's brother! Just using him as a prop to promote his BS racist movie against his brother, the president! He believes only Whites, Christians, and Republicans Are deemed americans. Anyone else..none!

    D'Sousa is a right wing loon trying with this film to wring more out after his book bashing the president. Half brother George doesn't appear too upset with his life.

    Obama has bent over back-wards to bring the nation together while the Republican legislators threw up road blocks. It seemed as if the only purpose they had was to keep Obama from being a two term president.
    They should have concentrated on getting a decent candidate. These corporate puppets just don't get it for the working class.

    You are and your cohorts are calling the current sitting President a traitor blaming him for all these yet to occur actions. Implying that we have a king, etc. and you are calling me an ungrateful jerk? You people are disgusting!
    Again this is further proof I was right, Anyone who calls Barack Obama a fraud is, in fact, a racist, bigoted lyinh hypocrtical scumbag!
    The party that creates and spews racist lies about the President Birth certificate, his idealogy, his religion, his personal life, his loyalty, etc. No other President had ANY of those this questioned, but then again, none of those Presidents were black!

    obama is not a traitor nor a disgrace. he is not Communist, socialist, or marxist. he does not hate america. he is not racist. he is not muslim actually he is Christian. Obama does not have full control on our country, he is not a dictator.
    Anyone who calls Obama a fraud and a POS is without doubt a disgusting racist, bigoted scum, and That’s a fact.

    1. Bitter much?

      Look, labels like Marxist are irrelevant, the fact is the economy stinks. President Obama and fellow Democrats tried a super expensive solution that clearly did not solve the problem. Then they turned their attention to health care when the real problem has not been solved. Fine, let's assume he's not a Marxist. Then he's simply in way over his head and can't manage the country. Pointing that out has NOTHING to do with racism, it has to do with an objective assessment of his results, which have been inadequate at best. You conveniently forget he had two years of unfettered decision making - a Democratic Congress and Senate to work with.

      You accuse conservatives of spreading fear and hate, but clearly you are being hateful yourself with words like "slimeballs". You state that the president bent over backwards to bring the country together - you ignore his comments about the keys to the car, and "I won " (http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2009/01/23/obama-to-gop-i-won/). How is that bending over backwards? Or am I a racist for asking that question?
