I would rather be right than popular

Obama The Rabble Rouser

H/T DRJ

From a New York Times blog comes this beauty:

“Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”

(emphasis DRJ)

Did you get that? The President of the United States used the same grotesque blue innuendo that would be a workplace harassment violation that the leftists have been bandying about for some time now. Stay classy, Baracky baby. Stay above the partisan politics, Baracky baby.

But there is so much more in that quote. Like tearing down a poem, the write-up becomes exponentially larger than the piece itself.

Does anybody think that the … anti-government people … All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters …

(I’m not doing a “hide the truth by elipsis” Gleeeeeeenwald thing here (since the full quote is above) but focusing on a point.)
So, according to Obama, all Democrats are big-government, expansionist government people. There is no room for any Democrats to think government is too big or too controlling of our lives, according to Obama.

Does anybody think that the [Tea Party], anti-government people … it will encourage the extremists.

So, all the Republican, Independent, Democrat Tea Party folk are extremists. Baracky baby said it. Anyone who supports the Constitutional small government principle is an extremist.

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it always to be kept alive.
Thomas Jefferson

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
Thomas Jefferson

An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826), letter to John Melish, January 13, 1813

So, according to Baracky baby, President Thomas Jefferson was an extremist.

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.
George Washington

Oops, Baracky baby just called our nation’s first President an extremist (to be avoided or ignored)!

I could go on tearing Baracky baby down out of that one quote, but that last Jefferson quote does quite well enough.

Back to that NYT blogsite:

“This is an opportunity to do something as big as Social Security,” [Representative Martin Heinrich (D-NM)] added. “And me, personally, I don’t want to be on the wrong side of history.”

And since Social Security is bankrupt … And since Social Security is unconstitutional …
