Obama is the president of all Americans, not just the ones who agree with him, so shut up

Font Size:

Obama will just say any old thing. Here he is on Letterman last night, yukkin’ it up with a worshipful Dave while the economy teeters and the Middle East burns:

“One of the things I’ve learned as president is, you represent the entire country… When you’re president, you gotta work for everybody, not just for some.”

Yeah, have you noticed how awesome Obama is at working for everybody, even if they disagree with him? Let’s take a quick look back at his moderate, bipartisan efforts to bring everybody together…

Washington Wire, January 23, 2009:

The top congressional leaders from both parties gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the shape and size of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan. The meeting was designed to promote bipartisanship.

But Obama showed that in an ideological debate, he’s not averse to using a jab.

Challenged by one Republican senator over the contents of the package, the new president, according to participants, replied: “I won.”

That’s just off the top of my head. I’m sure you can think of other examples of him telling people he doesn’t like to stifle themselves. He has done little else for the last four years. Obama is the president of all Americans, even if they disagree with him, as long as they agree with him.

By the way, that characteristically dishonest answer from Obama was in response to Letterman’s characteristically boneheaded question about the Romney tape: “Is that what rich guys in country clubs are talkin’ about?” Well, Dave, why don’t you try askin’ ’em yourself the next time you’re on St. Barts?

On behalf of Hoosiers everywhere, I’d like to apologize for David Letterman. He was pretty funny for a few years back in the ’80s, though, wasn’t he? Right?

Update: Yet another Obama lie from last night:

Update: I wonder if the rich guys in country clubs are talkin’ about this: Obama bans photos of champagne towers at lavish NYC fundraiser.

Update: Barack Obama, President of All Americans, on the Tea Party: “You would think they’d be saying thank you.”
