Total. Fucking. Facepalm.


Obama tells Republicans he should have worked more with them

Washington (CNN) -- "A political summit between President Barack Obama and congressional leaders Tuesday yielded further talks on how to extend Bush-era tax breaks scheduled to expire at the end of the year, as well as an acknowledgement from Obama that he needs to reach out more to Republicans.

The meeting, dubbed by some the "Slurpee summit" for a campaign dig by Obama at congressional Republicans, involved the president and leaders of both parties from the House and Senate. It came in the aftermath of the November midterm election in which Republicans took control of the House and gained six seats in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

Originally proposed by Obama as a half-day event that could extend into dinner, the meeting was postponed once by Republican leaders and ended up lasting about two hours. Afterward, Obama and Republican leaders said they wanted to work together, but they also made clear that sharp differences exist on major issues."

Oh my god. I mean, just . . . oh my fucking God. Speechless here. How could President Obama possibly, under any circumstances, think that he needed to reach out more to the RepubliCons?

Don't get me wrong. I understand that the President is facing shrieking racism and an army of stupid, hilljack, cracker, ignorant, redneck, inbred, fucking morons with way too much money and media play, in an environment where ANY Democrat was going to be subjugated to a wholly unfair playing field. I get that it's a challenge, okay? But this headline made me want to literally retch my digestive tract, in its entirety, up my esophagus, and out of my mouth.

I mean, he already allowed his signature legislation, the Health Care "Reform" package, to be stripped away of its best ideas, and replaced with corporate-friendly giveaways to insurance companies! The American people don't give two turds in a rat's butt about "bipartisanship" because they're too busy trying to avoid homelessness due to foreclosure and joblessness. The President didn't need to "reach out across the aisle" more. He needed to FIGHT THESE EVIL FUCKS AND SEND THEM WHIMPERING HOME TO MOMMY. Instead, he decided that the thing to do was try to get the GOoPers to be nice to him by fucking over the American people. And look what it got him - a bunch of wild-eyed neanderthals throwing their feces on him and pissing on his shoes (which was always gonna happen anyway) AND the added bonus of a real electoral shellacking.

Reach out more to the RepubliCons?!?!? Are you fucking kidding me? This is basically Barry-O's way of saying:
Well, sure the GOoPers were fucking me in the ass with a spiky dildo . . . but I think problem is that I just wasn't using enough lube.

If someone doesn't get into the President's ear and soon; if this continues to be the pattern from Barry-O, I'm sorry, but we are FUCKED as a country. The 'Cons in Congress are going to do everything they can to continue to block any progress on the so-called Economy, and if people don't have appreciably more jobs in 2012 then Obama is a sure-fire one-termer. Even Sarah Palin could beat the President under the present circumstances, if the President doesn't learn how to man up, take the spiky dildo out of his bunghole, and FIGHT THESE ASSHOLES.
