Preaching To The Choir: Obama Tells Congressional Black Caucus He Will ‘Keep Marching’ On Obamacare, Gun Control

President Obama addresses Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Dinner

Speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual gala dinner over the weekend, President Barack Obama demonized Republicans and vowed to “keep marching” on issues such as gun control.

The President paid much lip service to the “extreme faction” of Republican lawmakers who are unwilling to negotiate over the Affordable Care Act.

“This is an interesting thing to ponder,” Obama said. “That your top agenda is making sure that 20 million people don’t have health insurance and you’d be willing to shut down the government and potentially default — for the time in United States history — because it bothers you so much that we’re actually going to make sure that everybody has affordable health care. Let me say as clearly as I can: It is not going to happen.”

He continued later, “It’s time for these folks to stop governing by crisis and start focusing on what really matters: Creating new jobs, growing our economy, expanding opportunity for ourselves, looking after our children, doing something about the violence out there. ”

The President went on to decry conservative efforts to thwart his gun control agenda.

“Just two days ago, in my hometown of Chicago, 13 people were shot during a pickup basketball game, including a 3-year-old girl,” he said. “Tomorrow night I’ll be meeting and mourning with families in this city who now know the same unspeakable grief of families in Newtown, and Aurora, and Tucson, and Chicago, and New Orleans, and all across the country — people whose loved ones were torn from them without headlines sometimes, or public outcry.

“We fought a good fight earlier this year, but we came up short, and that means we’ve got to get back up and go back at it,” the President continued.

    Good thing he didn’t use any racial overtones, as if the mere existence of anything called Congressional BLACK Caucus isn’t racist enough. .

    • http://www.thefreedomtrainusa.com/ FreedomTrainUSA

      The biggest group of racists in the country are the Black Caucus….along with the likes of the Jessie “Jackass” …as he know by in Chicago….and Al SharpTongue-Dull Brain…

      • Sam

        The Black Caucus is nothing but socialists, communists, and Marxists. Most of them used to belong to the New Party, which used to be Communist Party USA. Obama was a card carrying member of the New Party in 1996.

          Never made any assertions of all blacks being racist or liberals being stupid (well maybe about liberals being stupid to be true) I have a number of black colleagues who think as you. I am reminded of what Bill Cosby said regarding blacks “It’s NOT about color… It’s about behavior !!!

    Black gangstas killing other blacks over drug turf in Chicago. So, let’s take the guns away from the law-abiding citizens, so they cannot protect themselves either. Sounds like a plan…..a liberal/progressive idiot-ology plan.

      As I ask the people who cheer on this crap about taking all the guns away, “Please explain to me how taking my guns away will disarm even a single criminal or prevent even a single crime.” All I ever get in response is a blank stare, then a statement like, “I don’t care; anything that takes guns off the streets is a good thing.” Then I respond with, “But the guns being taken away were not ‘on the streets’ in the first place.” After that, the person normally just shakes their head and walks away. ‘Nuff said.

  • Sam

    Obama is trying to collapse our economy. Then he can blame it on capitalism because he said “capitalism never worked”. Funny, at the same time, he is resentful of our wealth. Obama thinks America is an imperialist nation that stole its wealth from other countries. He is so brainwashed and stupid, but evil.

    • Don 2

      He’s far from stupid Sam……think Cloward-Piven strategy…..overload the entitlement system until the economic system collapses, unleashing chaos and violence in the streets, thus affecting radical Leftist political change in government. Of course, getting rid of our 2nd. Amendment gun rights makes it all easier to accomplish when the SHTF.

      Because he’s too busy ignoring the 1.2 million children slaughtered by state sponsored murder via Planned Parenthood. ODUMBO has his own agenda and it is not in the best interests of OUR United States.

    When will Obama tell these Christians the truth? The phrase “Non-Muslims” you know the Christians that are being slaughtered all over the world by the same people he is arming in Syria. He has said he will stand by the Muslims. But People that believe in God and Jesus are ignored. I am so sick of the mainstream media saying Non Muslims. Come on Christians. Lets start calling a Duck a Duck. So Christians can be killed. and Obama never says a word to condemn the Muslims? Am I wrong?

    Of course he will: Just like dictators all through history, he cannot stand for citizens armed for self protection from an abusive government!

  • Barakolips

    Let me say this as clearly as I can, I know not one person that will voluntarily give up their firearms, EVER, so Mr. Obama you would have the fight of your life if you EVER tried to take them from us.

    • Vis Fac

      The larger cities in the US all have “gun buy back programs” that offer gift cards for any gun that is turned in. After every event the news runs a story showing all the firearms that were (allegedly) turned in. I say allegedly because the guns displayed are all worth more than the $200 gift cards they were traded for and most are in “pristine” condition. and no gang banger would ever trade in his tools of the trade for a measly $200 gift card.

      I know several retired sheriffs deputies who have told me they ad “loaned” a portion of their gun collections for propaganda purposes to support yet another liberal lie. This is a fact because they have access to firearms confiscated during arrests. Often these firearms were reported stolen yet the police and sheriff never returns them to their owners.

      Don’t EVER believe lame stream media they are owned lock stock and barrel (pun intended) by ODUMBO and the liberal propaganda machine.

        Thanks for clearing up a few things for me, Id never even considered that the liberals would stoop to such devious lengths as this. You cant help but wonder how far they would actually go to get our firearms which I believe now is their ultimate goal, ALL of them!

        • Vis Fac

          Unless you are young or have been out of the country you shouldn’t be surprised as to how low liberals will stoop to force their agenda The one that irritates me the most is when ODUMBO addressed the nation after the Tragedy at Sandyhook elementary school by his parading of surviving students and displaying pictures of the victims not once but on several occasions “never miss an opportunity to exploit a tragedy”.

          I found this to be most despicable and lower than low, proof positive that there is no depth too low for liberals to stoop.

            He must have been extremely happy because he didn’t have to use a 4 or 5 year old picture. He could use the actual picture showing what the child looked like at the time he was killed.

            Maybe if Planned Parenthood were mandated to show ultrasound photos there would be fewer government sanctioned murders either.

        Of course they don’t return them to their owners. They are “evidence” and as such have to be held until the perp is caught, tried, convicted, and then he gets to exhaust his appeals (which are just about endless) – at taxpayer’s expense of course….then and only then, if they haven’t been somehow “lost”, can they be returned to their owners.

        • Vis Fac

          At one time firearms were returned and the so called “evidence” is used for trial purposes then supposed to be returned. The police being thugs with badges make laws as they go and “confiscate” then relegate them to their collections.

          I know a number of LEO’s they all have a “respectable” firearms collection.

  • Vis Fac

    “Governing by crisis? Who is he kidding? What a bunch of hyperbolic hypocrisy. I seem to recall ODUMBO parading school children in front of him while he assaulted law abiding citizens and OUR Second Amendment to advance his gun control legislation. I find it strange the liberal community allows such actions when it favors their agenda yet complains when others do the same. Apparently liberalism is a do as I say not as I do institution.

    As for the Affordable Health Care Act which is anything BUT affordable; when over 75% of the country including those who backed it don’t want it why push it unless you want this to be part of your legacy?

    We hope that “WE THE PEOPLE” are able soon to stand up in one thunderous voice and tell this whacked out muslim, Christian hating, UN-American, racist, to stop dismantling our Constitution & Bill of Rights, and go directly to jail, with his gang of street thugs.

    This oxygen thief and waste of skin continues to spend tax payer money to further his divisive agenda to ruin our country by preaching his lies on the national media that he controls, and blocking any opposition on his senseless rants.

    He is still marching for gun control like a spoiled child seeking revenge, because he lost his first bid to take the guns away from law abiding citizens, and will continue to punish the American people every chance he gets, and again, he is able to use our tax dollars with no accountability of what he spends to defeat us.

    We cannot believe that there are really any real Americans that are fooled by what he is doing, because it is always the same story with him, that every time there is one of these mass murder events, he puts on his most concerned,
    and grief stricken face to tell the world how bad he feels that these victims
    were killed, by these proven mentally deranged people, should not have happened, and wouldn’t have, if we had listened to him and let him take all of our guns!!!

    We are sure that he has proven his point that a large number of the 47%
    of the people that Mitt referenced will back him up on anything he says,
    and he is right it seems, so he just keeps trampling on our rights toget his way.

    ISN’T IT AMAZING THOUGH THAT HE MARCHES TO TAKE LAW ABIDING CITIZENS GUNS, BUT HE NEVER BRINGS ANY ANSWERS TO THE TABLE
    ABOUT HOW HE IS GOING DISARM THE SUB CULTURE OF THE GANGS IN THE MAJOR INNER CITIES OF THIS COUNTRY THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 95% OF OUR CRIME LIKE THE BLOODBATH THAT HAPPENED IN HIS HOME CITY OF CHICAGO LAST WEEK WHERE 13 PEOPLE INCLUDING A
    3 TEAR OLD CHILD!!! ???

    THROW THE INEPT BUMS OUT OF OUR WHITE HOUSE. AND USE THE BACK DOOR PLEASE.
