HE WANTS TO MUTE DISSENT …

|| By FITSNEWS || Liberals are gushing over a line in U.S. president Barack Obama‘s 2015 State of the Union address in which he appealed to his fellow politicians in Washington, D.C. to engage in “a better politics.”

“It will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest (lines) of his Presidency,” South Carolina Democratic activist Tyler Jones said of Obama’s remarks. “This is the kind of stuff you read at Presidential libraries.”

Really?  They give Teleprompters their own presidential libraries now?

Anyway, while Obama’s comments would seem on their face to be about elevating the national debate – they’re really not.  The “better politics” schtick is all about silencing legitimate criticism – and perpetuating the myth that truth in ideology can only be found in the indiscernible, antiseptic, politically correct hushed tones uttered on cue by the “mushy middle.”

Obama doesn’t want “a better politics.” He wants more appeasement.  And he knows the best way to get it is to portray those who actually stand for something as being on the fringes of the American political spectrum.

“Many of you have told me that this isn’t what you signed up for — arguing past each other on cable shows, the constant fundraising, always looking over your shoulder at how the base will react to every decision,” Obama said.  “Imagine if we broke out of these tired old patterns.  Imagine if we did something different.”

Wait … something different?

Isn’t that what his “hope and change” was supposed to be all about?  Of course.  But Obama didn’t do anything different … he just did the same demonstrably failed things “Republicans” used to do on a much grander scale.

“A better politics isn’t one where Democrats abandon their agenda or Republicans simply embrace mine,” Obama continued.  “A better politics is one where we appeal to each other’s basic decency instead of our basest fears.”

Really?  We wonder … was U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (a liberal “Republican” from Mississippi who won his primary race by appealing to some pretty base fears) nodding along with Obama at this point in his speech?

“A better politics is one where we debate without demonizing each other; where we talk issues, and values, and principles, and facts, rather than ‘gotcha’ moments, or trivial gaffes, or fake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives,” Obama continued.

Wait … facts … like these?  Or these?  Or these?  Or these?

Yeah … facts are stubborn things.  And they are not on Obama’s side.  Nor are they on the side of his “Republican” antagonists either – something this website has made abundantly clear.

Here’s the bottom line: America will have “a better politics” when it has a real choice at the polls.  When its politicians stop lying, cheating and stealing from them on an unprecedented scale.  And when its media establishment insists on real accountability as opposed to serving as cheerleader-in-chief for its latest multi-trillion dollar misadventures.

That is “a better politics.”  And the only way to get it is to stand and fight … not roll over for Obama’s Teleprompter.

UPDATE: Oh wait, never mind … “everything is awesome.”

I stopped reading at the part about Americans “gushing” over a politician. No politician is ever worthy of “gushing.”

Oh yeah, that was in the first sentence.

“It will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest (lines) of his Presidency,” South Carolina Democratic activist Tyler Jones said of Obama’s remarks. “This is the kind of stuff you read at Presidential libraries.”

Dear Cockroach Fucker Tyler Jones

Below are several “great” lines by “great” people:

“We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”- Sir Winston Churchill

“Revolution is not a dinner party, not an essay, nor a painting, nor a piece of embroidery; it cannot be advanced softly, gradually, carefully, considerately, respectfully, politely, plainly, and modestly.”- Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-tung)

“Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”- Ronald Reagan

“I have come to the conclusion that politics are too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.”- Charles De Gaulle

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”- John F. Kennedy

As for POTUS’ “a better politics” it is a line not worthy of an urinal wall

thanks for your time

Pollsters had the Democrats holding the senate and picking up seats in the house on November 4th. How did that work out for ya?

Election will be 51%-49% either way. Problem Dems have is they should pick up a couple of senate seats and it looks like the pubs will have 60 after 2016.

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 1:24 pm

Not a chance. Bye bye Senate. Of course, they could pass immigration reform and have a chance at 2016. But given the hate speech we’ll get as that gets crammed down the Tea Party’s throat, you can bet even Bush would be lucky to get 25% of the Latino vote.

I’ve been to a couple but seldom as a primary destination. Eisenhower’s is in Abilene, KS. I’ve taken several classes there over the years as part of a larger history field trip out of fabulous Fort Riley.

Carter’s is in Atlanta, GA – I broke my motorcycle a couple of blocks from there riding one afternoon so I stumbled in to kill a few hours while I waited on a friend with a trailer.

Reagan’s is the best – the old 707 “Air Force One”, a big chunk of the Berlin Wall and a number of other artifacts are there and the facility itself is remarkable. I actually went there on purpose

Seething anger just rolls off of Obama lips as he recites the hate and liberal dogma that the young socialists write for him and stick into that teleprompter.
How dare America reject him after electing him 2x based on the lies he told them. How dare they make it more difficult for him to fulfill the dreams of his father,Saul Alinski, his communist college professors,Bill Ayers, his wife,Rev Wright and the Democrat Party to transform and destroy this country and shred it’s Constitution.
Obama is angry with America and why we are in such a dangerous and perilous position today domestically and throughout the world.Never have we had a pResident working so hard to disassemble and tear apart the very fabric of this nation because he hates everything it has stood for.

By the way gas prices are projected to be $5 a gallon by the summer of 2016-just before the election. Oh MY!!!

A better politics is where the GOP ignores the Tea Party calls for obstruction and Boehner/Pelosi and McConnell/Reid stop their petty bullshit and get things done for once.

A better politics is ignoring the Cato/ALG trolls that want government dysfunction because it furthers their Koch-based agenda.

A better politics is sending the kids to daycare and letting the adults run shit for once.

“…a better politics…” is poor grammar at best and simple sophistry at worst.

Is “a better politics” one where the President threatens to veto every bill the House and Senate send his way because he disagrees with them – without even knowing what they plan to do? Is “…a better politics…” one where we play one group against the other and accomplish nothing in the process?
