President Caught On 'Hot Mic' Saying Things He Should Just Say In Public
UH OH! President Obama had his first fundraiser of the season in Chicago last night, and after his remarks, a microphone that was left on caught the socialist conversing candidly with donors. What did he say? He made fun of John Boehner and Paul Ryan for being terrible, basically. On Paul Ryan: "this is the same guy that voted for two wars that were unpaid for, voted for the Bush tax cuts that were unpaid for, voted for the prescription drug bill that cost as much as my health care bill -- but wasn't paid for. So it's not on the level. And we’ve got to keep on you know, keep on shining a light on that." Haha, he burnt. But when has Obama ever "shined a light on this"? He hasn't. Why doesn't he ever criticize Republican lawmakers in public like this?
While President Obama has been very critical of Ryan's budget proposal this week, he has been more complimentary in the past when describing both Ryan and his previous 2010 proposal. Speaking before the House GOP retreat in January 2010, the president suggested Ryan was a "pretty sincere guy" who "has looked at the budget and has made a serious proposal."
On talks with Boehner:
"And I said to them, let me tell you something: 'I spent a year and a half getting health care passed. I had to take that issue across the country and I paid significant political costs to get it done. The notion that I’m going to let you guys undo that in a 6 month spending bill?' I said, 'You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We'll have that debate. You're not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we're stupid?'"
Why? Why does he have to pretend he thinks these people are good lawmakers? He looks like a disingenuous wimp to voters, not a post-partisan messiah.
Perhaps Obama purposefully left the mic on because he didn't want to be seen publicly taking an actual position on the awful hypocrites he, admittedly, has to work with (not that he's not himself an awful hypocrite). Or he wanted to say this stuff about Ryan and Boehner but knew the only way to get real media attention, even for the president of the United States, is to be "caught on tape!!!!!!!" or say something crazy about birth certificates.
See the president can be interesting sometimes! He doesn't need to be nice all the time to people he loathes! He's actually pretty good at shitting on people! He should leave his mic on all the time, until the media catches on that these aren't mistakes, at which point he can get media attention by saying them whilst pulling his dick out and swinging it around. We're sure Lyndon Johnson's used that one before.
This story about him shitting on people thankfully takes attention from the boring speech he made. He actually said, "Yes We Can." Again. Even though half his presidency to this point has been "No We Can't, Sorry." [ABC News]
