Obama feeling 'feisty,' ready to take on the 'crazies'

LAS VEGAS (AP) — President Barack Obama is putting people on notice: He's back from vacation feeling "refreshed, renewed, recharged" — and "a little feisty." He immediately showed his feisty side. In other words, he showed his "liberal" side
|Obama thinks he is hot! Maybe so!|
At a Democratic fundraiser Monday night in Nevada, Obama declared himself ready for the challenges he faces this fall in dealing with a Republican Congress that disagrees with him on the budget, energy policy, education and much more. They disagree with much much more Mr. President because you are an empty suit, void of any ability to live in reality
Obama said that as he'd ridden to the fundraiser with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, they'd done some reminiscing and spent some time "figuring out how we are going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems." Liberals always resort to name calling when they have no platform.....so we conservatives are all "crazies". How mature of him to use such eloquent language
He didn't identify exactly who the two of them had defined as "crazies." Let me take a wild guess....anyone who disagrees with you
But Obama spoke at length about his differences with the GOP Congress. And he lamented that "too often, our political debates are not about what's best for the country but what's best for the next election." But you seldom debate....you just complain
If the country is to remain a strong world leader, he said, it needs "not just a president who, after a few gray hairs, seems to know what he's doing, but we also need a Congress that functions." "Strong world leader" you are not, Mr. President, and you have not a clue what you are doing half the time. Anytime congress can block your 'phone & pen' management style they are doing me a favor
Obama also looked beyond the immediate challenges to simpler times down the road. Thanks to your inept management, times ahead will be anything but "simpler". It will take America YEARS to recover from the damage you have done.
He said that since neither he nor Reid is seeking re-election next year, the two off them had talked about "riding off into the sunset together." Why wait? You can both leave NOW, no one would notice your absence
Earlier Monday, Obama spoke at a green energy conference where he accused fossil fuel interests and other critics of his energy policies of trying to restrict consumers from accessing solar, wind and other renewable sources in order to protect the status quo. This claim is just more of his crap. I can purchase solar, wind and other renewable sources whenever I desire. There are ads all over the place for consumers to make choices.
"That's not the American way," Obama said. "This is about the past versus the future. America believes in the future." You don't even have a clue what the American way is!
The president also questioned the ideological consistency of those who champion free-market solutions — except when the free market is pointing to the wisdom of renewable energy. He singled out billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, who are major donors to Republican political candidates. Right....shame on the Koch brothers for putting their money where their mouth is, and shame on them for even being rich. If the contributed to liberal causes, he would call them heroes!
"It's one thing if you're consistent in being free market," Obama said. "It's another thing when you're free market until it's solar that's working and people want to buy and suddenly you're not for it anymore. That's a problem." Yes, it is always a problem when folks don't agree with you
Obama said the economics are now such that "solar isn't just for the green crowd any more, it's for the green-eyeshade crowd too." Solar use is gaining in popularity because it is starting to become cost-effective, .....you just don't get it.
Fossil fuel and utility interests have been working at the state level and elsewhere to undercut clean energy policies with arguments that the matter should be left to the free market. This is a blatantly false statement and anyone with half a brain can see through this bull. The president fails to realize that it is in fact the free market that has created an increase in alternative fuels. He fails to realize that electricity is still generated by coal, and there will always be a need for fossil fuels....Unless all lawnmowers will be required by the government to be powered by electric batteries. Does he think a Prius engine will work in a Mack truck?
