Obama Ignores Tragedy To Bash GOP And Tout Himself In Economy Speech

Obama Marks the Five-Year Anniversary of the U.S. Financial Crisis

Though many people expected him to cancel because of the tragic mass shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama delivered a highly partisan and accusatory campaign-style speech Monday to commemorate the five-year anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

The President has received criticism from both sides of the political aisle for not laying aside his planned speech in light of the tragedy—instead Obama spoke briefly about the tragedy before lashing out against Republicans in a verbal tirade.

As Washington Times columnist Eric Golub pointed out Monday:

He treated the shooting as peripheral in order to keep it from distracting from his prepared remarks extolling his own virtues.

“Before I begin, let me say a few words…”

He “made it clear” that the shooter or shooters would be “held responsible” and that his administration would be “investigating thoroughly” the situation. Americans have heard those tired phrases hundreds of times involving Benghazi, IRS abuses, and other situations, with the results never materializing.

The President’s entire speech hinged on accusations that Republicans are at “the height of irresponsibility” for an “unwillingness to compromise” and allow the Obama Administration agenda to be fulfilled.

“I cannot remember a time when one faction of one party promises economic chaos if it can’t get 100 percent of what it wants,” Obama said. “That’s never happened before.”

Obama also used the speech as an opportunity to defend his own economic record, saying, “We’ve cleared away the rubble of the financial crisis.”

He then moved on, further rebuking Republicans who dare attempt to provide obstacles to the full implementation of Obamacare.

“It was an issue in last year’s election, and the candidate who called for repeal lost,” Obama said.

Of the GOP plan to tie raising the debt ceiling to a delay of Obamacare, Obama said he would “not negotiate over whether or not America keeps its word.”

“Are some of these folks so beholden to one extreme wing of their party that they’re willing to tank the economy?” Obama said. “Are they really willing to hurt people just to score political points?”

    “Are some of these folks so beholden to one extreme wing of their party that they’re willing to tank the economy?” Obama said. “Are they really willing to hurt people just to score political points?”
    Yes and Yes. Obama you are more than willing to hurt anyone and everyone (except yourself and a few cronies) just to score political points and tank the economy.

    • WHITE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

      Let’s see: Obummer & his fellow DEMs continue to ILLEGALLY cancel key provisions of Obamacare without going through Congress, even from the get-go, many of his crony corportations & organizations got waivers from this horrible boondoggle, & now those that did not get them especially unions, are complaining about the law & starting to feel it should be repealed, a lot of young people as well see how bad it will be for them & want it repealed, yet, Obummer & his crew will not relent…so who is “scoring political points while people are getting hurt”?

      • Sassyladyfl

        How can a group of people be so stupid? I know most of you anti-Obama people are playing like it’syour favorite ball game .. Winning is all that matters. Conservatives are not thinking they are hating and speaking out of the top of their heads. Win at all costs… No matter how bad it hurts our country. I am ashamed of the total lack of intelligence based on the comments above. Sure hope you sleep well tonight…

      Yes, this is the most criminal, corrupt, and treasonous administration of all time. People need to wake up to what this Marxist Muslim and his criminal cronies are doing to this country.

    • Sarah Burnett

      Remember Benghazi,? He didn’t even TRY to save those people and went on to campaign early next morning. He needs to be charged with TREASON !!!

      • Aleta

        as much as I would like, it is not technically possible to charge him with treason, that can only be done in a declared war (which we do not have technically) and only then, if he has aided the stated enemy which again, is not possible without a congressionally declared war. I agree though, I find this man to be offensive on every level. I am not racist though, I could care less what color someone’s skin is, it’s the character of the person that matters. This man is a fraud, a cheat, a liar, a manipulator, and also, sadly, just a puppet man. The real criminals are the ones who hold the purse strings. We need to get rid of the fed, banksters, IRS, electoral college and the lobbyists!

    So, there was a shooting at the Navy Yard in DC. Big deal. Americans were killed and wounded. Why should Obama care? The world revolves around him. Everything and everyone else is insignificant.

    • txbadonetoo

      The victims weren’t kids so no political angle for Obama to take advantage of – thus as you said he has no interest in the death of 13 Americans. I honestly believe life is that simple with Obama.

      • rwm44

        no kids were killed in the shootings but according to the LSM the Newtown troops are already loaded up and on their way to DC

        • Sarah Burnett

          They never did tell us what was on that guy’s PC. He could have been RADICALIZED and talked into doing that shooting just to push gun control. Remember if they ever get that bill passed to have Universal gun checks, they can have the U. N. take our guns, because of the Treaty old Hillary signed ! Plus, the people in that town are part to blame, because they knew this guy’s condition and sweap it under the rug.and had NO protection for those kids and that’s the fault of the Gov. on down to the school board .

      • Average_Joe56

        “The victims weren’t kids ”
        …and the perpetrator was confirmed to be….wait for it…..wait for it……. Black…shhhhhh! ( someone will scream racism at just the mention).
        If Obama had a son, he would look just like…….

        ” he has no interest in the death of 13 Americans. ”
        He didn’t care about the four dead Americans in Benghazi,Brian Terry or the Fort Hood shootings either…. why would this be any different? He supports abortion, wholesale genocide…in America, of course he doesn’t care about 13 American deaths…that’s small potatoes for a man who advocates for American deaths on a daily basis.

    Possibly the greatest con-man in the history of the world. Unbelievable that he still has so many worshippers. Every time he makes a statement he actually invites one to lose more respect for him. Given that he does not understand what respect means, and actually never earned any, he wallows somewhere in the negative now, along with McCain, Kerry and Reid. Small wonder Putin has no respect for him. Can someone closest and dearest to him please explain to this arrogant individual that respect is to be earned, not demanded. His words are empty of real substance and actually meaningless to anyone other than himself.

  • Matforce

    The disingenuousness, divisiveness, and outright lying that is constantly hammered home by the incessant propaganda machine from the right
    wing think tanks is not mere overzealousness, but part of a strategy by right
    wing think tanks like ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council), the
    Heritage Foundation, and Americans for Prosperity, etc. to confuse a gullible
    public with willful mal-intent. ALEC’s founders, Paul Weyrich and Eric Heubeck
    have devised a plan (manifesto) that is reminiscent of the propaganda tactics
    used during the rise of the Third Reich.

    One of the tragedies in the anti-democratic reforms currently taking place across the spectrum of American society is the cynical manipulation of mainstream Americans’ belief in the presumed integrity of democratic processes and the disbelief that blatant lying, maneuvering, misinforming, and disinforming for the sake of corporate hegemony can happen in a nation with checks and balances like those of the USA.

    More attention needs to be paid to a deliberate strategy of chaos that is being played out. While ALEC (and its other affiliations and associations) can show that it does not always have a direct connection to the agendas currently being wielded, indirect links and influence can be found, but you have to DIG. Most Americans don’t or won’t expend the effort.

    The late Paul Weyrich, co-founder of ALEC, helped Eric Heubeck write the manifesto for the New Traditionalist Movement in 2001. While The New Traditionalists and the Dominionists have been encouraged not to draw
    additional unneeded attention to themselves, their manifesto, nonetheless,
    illustrates, in part, HOW rapid change is taking place in the U.S. If such a
    manifesto were written by a group outside the U.S. trying to influence U.S.
    policies and institutions, it would be considered terrorism, which is what it
    is — domestic terrorism.

    Here are some excerpts:

    “This essay is based on the belief that the truth of an idea is not the primary reason for its acceptance. Far more important is the energy and dedication of the idea’s promoters—in other words, the individuals composing a social or political movement…”

    “There will be three main stages in the unfolding of this movement. The first stage will be devoted to the development of a highly motivated elite able to coordinate future activities. The second stage will be devoted to the development of institutions designed to make an impact on the wider elite and a relatively small minority of the masses. The third stage will involve changing the overall character of American popular culture…”

    “Our movement will be entirely destructive, and entirely constructive. We will not try to reform the existing institutions. We only intend to weaken them, and eventually destroy them. We will endeavor to knock our opponents off-balance and unsettle them at every opportunity. All of our constructive energies will be dedicated to the creation of our own institutions…”

    “We will maintain a constant barrage of criticism against the Left. We will attack the very legitimacy of the Left. We will not give the a moment’s rest. We will endeavor to prove that the Left does not deserve to hold sway over the heart and mind of a single American. We will offer constant reminders that there is an alternative, there is a better way. When people have had enough of the sickness and decay of today’s American culture, they will be embraced by and welcomed into the New Traditionalist movement. The rejection of the existing society by the people will thus be accomplished by pushing them
    and pulling them simultaneously.”

    “We must create a countervailing force that is just as adept as the Left at intimidating people and institutions that are used as tools of left-wing activism but are not ideologically committed, such as Hollywood celebrities, multinational corporations, and university administrators. We must be feared, so that they will think twice before opening their mouths…”

    “We will be results-oriented rather than good intentions-oriented. Making a good-faith effort and being ideologically sound will be less important than advancing the goals of the movement…”

    “We will use guerrilla tactics to undermine the legitimacy of the dominant regime. We will take advantage of every available opportunity to spread the idea that there is something fundamentally wrong with the existing state of affairs. … contribute to a vague sense of uneasiness and dissatisfaction with existing society. … We need to break down before we can build up. We must first clear away the flotsam of a decayed culture.”

    “We need more people with fire in the belly, and we need a message that attracts those kinds of people…We must reframe this struggle as a moral struggle, as a transcendent struggle, as a struggle between good and evil. And we must be prepared to explain why this is so. We must provide the evidence needed to prove this using images and simple terms…”

    Support of an Elite More Valuable than Support of the Masses

    “We will initially operate according to the belief that it is more important to win over the elites (or create a new, better one) than to build up a mass movement. Furthermore, it is more important to have a few impassioned members than a large number of largely indifferent members. The amount of energy, élan, and self-assurance that we are able to inculcate in the leaders of our movement will ultimately determine its success or failure.”

    “The new movement must be, in part, exclusive and elite. It must not be afraid to pass along a body of knowledge that is not readily accessible to and understandable by everyone. The strong appeal of a feeling of exclusivity and superiority will give our members a reason to endure the slings and arrows of popular disapproval.”

    “The New Traditionalist movement will appeal to the masses, but not immediately. The ideas of the masses never come from the masses. To the
    extent that the masses are more conservative than the elites, this is primarily
    because the masses have a long collective memory, and they still value the
    beliefs articulated by a long-lost elite. The conservative instincts of the
    American people will continue to erode unless a new elite is formed to refresh
    that memory.”

    “We must recognize that literature and philosophy do not appeal to the masses. This is why we must develop ways to spread our philosophy using non-rational means–especially the moving image.”

    If we could be flies on the wall of the backroom meetings and deals being made in the decision-making circles, this is the language we would hear and the strategies being put forward. This is the language that is covered up when
    proponents of the underlying strategies make PUBLIC pronouncements.

Some in Congress are trying to trick us on this defunding Obamacare bill. Too many RHINOS in there, and if they do, kick them out. And yes, too many illegal Muslims setting in this country that Obama brought in to help him get elected. That’s why they don’t want ID’s to vote.Furthermore, I just read about his plan to put boots on the ground in Syria to fight against the same people we gave our weapons to. He wants to bring this country down “to the Acceptance of his Muslim Brotherhood”, HIS WORDS ! I hope we can Impeach him ASAP.

      • Aleta

        Dave, you are so sadly mistaken. I agree both bushes were not great, even Reagan had his issues but you name me just 1 president who didn’t…….you can’t. More to impeach them than Obama, you better do some more research because that man is a fraud, through & through. He has gone on an executive order frenzy, abusing his executive powers, his legitimacy to hold the office of POTUS has been brought into question, every time he wants something, he holds SS & medicare hostage but yet, he himself got a pay raise? His health care policy, if it is so damn great, why is he, congress, their staff members all now exempt? not good enough for them but you, you’re willing to accept a death panel to make your health care decisions for you, not you & your doctor. Ya, that’s real reform alright…..AND then, Libya, which was an illegal military op that he never even sought congressional approval for, then he wanted to go to syria with almost same intel as Bush got to go into Iraq and get rid of Saddam. And then, Benghazi, which was an absolute travesty, Hillary and Obama both need to be brought to justice for their negligent handling (or more appropriately, a serious lack thereof) of the situation. Now with the Navy yard tragedy, all he can say is the same empty promise to investigate thoroughly and bring those responsible to justice, oh please! whatever! If that’s man’s lips are moving, nothing but lies is spilling forth. The progressive left needs to seriously stop bitching when people, regardless of party want the Constitution and Bill of Rights upheld, they are the founding law of the land and no president should ever disrespect either like this one has (bush too!) and congress as well (both sides) for so long now.

    Nothing ever stops him from campaigning. It is all he knows how to do. It gets him elected, but does nothing to help him run a country. He does not even understand the fundamentals of being a leader. He is so partisan that he is only the president of liberals. He is an adversary to the rest of us. He bullies and attacks all who do not agree with him. He seems to HATE all things conservative, Christian, or sensible. He is laser focused on his ideals, while unable to show any unbiased consideration (or empathy) for what others believe or want. When a military base is shot up, he tramples over them to stay on his targeted agenda. They are not his devoted followers, so he does not feel that it is necessary to treat them with respect. Of course he did make the standard, meaningless comment about holding those who did this responsible BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.. He always says it, but never does it.
    He reminds me of a line from “Les Miserables”, “he thinks he’s quite a lover but there’s not much there”.

    Obama is living in another world. He cannot face reality, he is destroying our health care system for Obama care which they estimate the cost at 1.9 trillion for ten years. But that figure is bogus, you also have to put in the cost for all his other socialist programs that are growing and the JOB market is falling. We now have more part time jobs than full time jobs which is going to hurt income for the government, housing and his anti natural resources hurts everyone because every thing is shipped some ware and every one that owns a car has been paying over $2 a gallon more since Obama has been president. But Obama lives like a dictator enjoying and spending He is the worst President every and has the distinction of being the biggest liar we have ever had. He gets away way with it because he has over a half dozen relatives that work for him that have spouses in the man stream media. The Press has some responsibility for the mess this country is in.

      I’m sorry but you made me laugh with your comments about the President’s relatives in the media. Could you name a few? I’ve never heard this and I read the news every day. Also, the only ones who can take credit for where the country is as far as jobs and the economy are the Republicans. They’ve wasted more time and taxpayer dollars trying to repeal the ACA and have not created or kept one job from being cut except for their own and their staffers. They all, to a man, ran on creating jobs but haven’t done anything about the millions of people who lost their jobs due to the Republican recession. The one thing that the Republicans haven’t learned in all their years as a political party, is how to actually govern. They don’t have a clue. You can tell with their constant GOP created crisis that they seem to serve up everytime a budget or spending bill is due. They can run for office and lie their way in, but once there, their brains stop working and they turn into little, whiney crybabies whose only duty seems to be themselves and their wallets. Anything that is good for them gets a vote. Anything meant for the country and all us working folks will cost too much and take food from the mouths of the CEO’s that have decided that their regular salaries just aren’t enough. They want to turn us all upside down and shake what’s left in our pockets out too. They need the GOP to do this and the GOP is only too glad to have some body other than our duly elected by 6 million votes, president to listen to. Because that is what the loyal opposition party does. They commit treason by trying to destroy the country and 300 million people because of the hatred they feel for one man. This makes the GOP look sad and pitiful and small and petty. They are willing to break their oaths and take down the government to get rid of one man. They are the ones destroying America, not the biracial man living legally in the Whitehouse.

        He does not need his family in the media, these phony blowhards that kiss his anus all day are doing a much better job spinning his lies & protecting him from all the scandals & illegalities than any family members would….hey, how about his half-brother who lives on a dollar a day in Africa who said OBOZO would not help him? Let’s bring him here & give him a job in the lapdog section!!!

        Hey, bith sides have sold us down the river & OBlahBlah is a puppet of the power elite just like Bush2 was, but to blame the GOP for this half-black devil’s immorality & stupidity is INSANE!!

          BillV and Debmcd are as phony as can be. This may be poly sci class write up. There is too much back and forth as if one knew what the other would be writing and then would respond. They both tried to use up all the identifiers that the Leftists have garnered about the Conservatives and Libertarians and Tea Party in both of the comments.

        Ho hum debmcd, sing us another song. we’ve heard that one from obama…..

  • Patriot

    You did not hear him speak “That could have been my Son” Seems its a one way street.

    • Dire Badger

      besides the fact that a black man gunned down 13 white people? Oh wait, it doesn’t suit the MSM’s ‘white people are evil’ meme, so it’s clearly not race related.

  • KENYAN KRUSHER

    • KENYAN KRUSHER

    The whole title of this article is a lie. Obama did not ignore the attack but spoke out on it, condemning it twice yesterday. Goebbels would be proud of you Mr. Rolley

  • janice kraczon

    Dave you sound as crazy as obama. The Republicans are the ones that DIDN’T want him to go to war. UNINFORMED as usual. That’s the only way this idiot got in a second time…

  • janice kraczon

    Thank the good Lord they are stopping his agenda. If 2010 wouldn’t have happened we would be 100 times worse off…..

  • janice kraczon

    We know dave, it’s NOT fully implemented and look at the damage it’s done already?????

  • Robert Messmer

    I agree with you 100% that Harry Reid is an absolute fool…..oops my bad you said tool, oh well. Since the HC law is so important and so good for the country why has President Obama delayed first one part, then another part? Why has Congress asked to be exempt? Why have the Unions, which originally were in favor, suddenly demanded they want extra perks? (Maybe its that whole we have to pass the law before we will be allowed to know what is in the law.) On the economy during the recession how many times has President Obama pushed for legislation restricting or better yet eliminating government waste? How about no arms to terrorists? How about following the law about no aid to countries taken over by coup?

  • Robert Messmer

    I’m always amazed that the Bush blamers always overlook the minor detail that the Democrats voted for it. True Obama was one that was against Iraq (but he has been damn eager to meddle in the Middle East ever since he got into office) but even Madame Hillary voted in favor of the Iraq invasion. So when you say “scared little rabbits” that included the majority of the Democrats.

  • Robert Messmer

    Which is exactly why President Obama changed all that nasty stuff President Bush did as soon as he took office, just like Senator Obama promised.
