"This election will not be as sexy as the first one.... We’ve got to grind it out a little bit. We’ve got to grind it out."

He's making it sound sexy!
"I’m going to keep on pushing."
"Keep On Pushing," by The Impressions was the song that played as Obama took the stage at the 2004 Democratic Convention to give the keynote address. Listen:

There was nothing sexy about electing him in 2008. Nothing sexy about the last three years. Nothing sexy about $14 trillion in federal debt. Nothing sexy about a president who dislikes Americans.

"Grinding it out" sounds pretty damn sexy to me. When we were "grinding it" on the dance floor the nuns made sure we separated and made room for The Holy Ghost.

The only grinding we taxpayers are feeling is that pain that we feel in our ass. At least he could have the decency of using some lube.

Or tell us to "put some ice on that"

traditionalguy said...

Actually Obama has always relied on his seductive powers using the smile of all smiles and his benevolent offer to lead us to the Brave New Re-distributed Community.

We somehow overlooked that meant he would first have to destroy our existing community order. Only Joe the Plumber got that word by a slip of the tongue.

How are Obama's suggested mob riots doing this morning?

AprilApple said...

Push, shove, grind, steal. Whatever it takes for the ultra leftwingers to stay in power.

frank said...

@ trad guy: riots are doing just fine. everybody got the word to show up in 'whiteface' so's not to cause 'problems'.

It's going to be a grind for him to win back his base, he's going to have to do better. But I'll still vote for him over any of the GOP candidates.

michaele said...

Many in this country feel pretty well ground down...don't think we need any more grinding.

edutcher said...

It's always easier when you're running unopposed.

This time he has a record to run against with a constituency that is not monolithically black.

ricpic said...

Obama only has half a hardon for a 2nd term; otherwise why would he have to keep on pushing?

ricpic said...

Keep on pushing to get back in, that is.

Paul Zrimsek said...

Can't you hear the music's pumpin' hard like I wish you would?

Now push it. Push it real good.

Rose said...

He's rather sexless if you ask me.

There's no 'there' there.

Hagar said...

I do not remember any previous President - not even the Clintons - using the Presidential panoply as much or as blatantly as this Prsident for personal fund-raising and partisan politicking.

Is it even possible for Congress to kind of say, "Hey, slow down, Hoss. This is too much of a muchness!"?

glenn said...

What OneBarry means is Chris Matthews "Thrill up my leg" has turned into "I just wet my knickers"

Coketown said...

After deploying the pullout method for Iraq, Obama will never be sexy again. That was worse than finding out he wears Underoos.

Browndog said...

Keep fuckin' that chicken....

Browndog said...

It's going to be a grind for him to win back his base,

Win it back from who?

Mao and Stalin are dead, and I don't think CPUSA is on the ballot this time around..

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Talk like that would get a less liberal black executive slapped with a sexual harrassment lawsuit.

Coketown said...

I can't wait for the "Mmm mmm mmm, Barack Hussein Obama" spoof that goes: "oh...OH...OH!! BARACK -- HUSSEIN -- OBAMA!!"

Mmm mmm mmm.

Apparently you would vote for him even if he was the second coming of Joseph Stalin. He will get his 40% of the vote no matter what.

He's making it sound desperate, Ann. Dude lost his sex appeal long ago.

So something really has receeded, then?

wv: boakilly Yes, no more big snake this time around.

Obama was sexy the first time because he had no record, and he wasn't Bush.

Today....he's has no record, and he doesn't have Bush.

He's toast!

No shit!

Then again, black women have become used to black men not coming through, so who knows.

Just bend over an take it, folks.

At least he didn't choose a little Clarence Carter.

Epic double facepalm douchebaggery.

Carol_Herman said...

Oh, he can lose.

But what's lacking is someone of quality, as able to talk straight to the American people. On par with Sarah Palin. And, Donald Trump. Because both have shown the knack to connect TO our economy.

Will this bad economy be around for a long time? YUP.

Did Obama inherit problems? Yup.

Does he have room to speak the truth? Nope. No one is gonna believe a word of what he says.

But there's NO REAGAN OUT THERE!

And, if you didn't know that it was ONLY REAGAN who took out Jimmy Carter ... then you don't know that if it wasn't for Reagan, Jimmy Carter would have been re-elected.

Carol_Herman said...

But the 8 contendahs, currently running for the republican nomination, aren't GOP elite insiders. (Even Newt Gingrich is just a has-been among them.)

What would an Obama win look like? (It would make Karl Rove laugh. It would get the "insiders" jumping all over the "Tea Party.") And, it wouldn't move the ball.

That ball that continually sits in the middle of the court.

Political said...

Today’s actions by President Obama’s Super PAC provided even more proof that Mitt Romney is the republican that scares democrats most. This anti-Romney ad buy is $100,000 and it’s far from the first anti-Romney attack ad President Obama’s Super PAC has produced. The continued paid attacks this early in the election illustrate a level of desperation from the Obama administration that makes sense considering President Obama’s record of accomplishment is so weak.

No, he's making it sound like uninspired sex that isn't working.

"It's going to be a grind for him to win back his base, he's going to have to do better. But I'll still vote for him over any of the GOP candidates."

The why does he have to do better to get back his base? Or are you suggesting that other voters (other than you) might base their vote of competence, results and workable solutions?

The Crack Emcee said...

"I’m going to keep on pushing."


Sometimes, the shallowness you display is deeply, deeply troubling.

Seriously, are there ANY adults left out there?

Maguro said...

The man does know how to shamelessly pander to his audience, I'll give him that.

Lem said...

Obama is counting on this..

You Like Me Too Much

Though you've gone away this morning,
You'll be back again tonight,
Telling me there'll be no next time
If I don't just don't treat you right,
You'll never leave me and you know it's true,
'cause you like me too much and I like you.

You've tried before to leave me,
But you haven't got the nerve
To walk out and make me lonely
Which is all that I deserve,

Tim said...

"It's going to be a grind for him to win back his base, he's going to have to do better. But I'll still vote for him over any of the GOP candidates."

This is what is known as a contradiction.

And, because the idiots who comprise Obama's base are just as dumb as Allie's Apple, it is evident to anyone with a passable IQ of at least 90 that the president doesn't have to do one fucking thing whatsoever to "win back his base."

Obama gets 90 to 95% of his '08 vote, simply on the basis that his voters are too stupid to do anything else but vote for him again.

Tim said...

November '12: it isn't just an election, it's an intelligence test.

And too many will fail.

pm317 said...

This drivel below is from the 'esteemed' paper of the country, the NY Times and the drooling for a fuck author is none other than Judith Warner. I dare you to read the rest of it. No wonder he goes around talking like that.

The other night I dreamt of Barack Obama. He was taking a shower right when I needed to get into the bathroom to shave my legs, and then he was being yelled at by my husband, Max, for smoking in the house. It was not clear whether Max was feeling protective of the president’s health or jealous because of the cigarette.

The other day a friend of mine confided that in the weeks leading up to the election, the Obamas’ apparent joy as a couple had made her just miserable. Their marriage looked so much happier than hers. Their life seemed so perfect. “I was at a place where I was tempted daily to throttle my husband,” she said. “This coincided with Michelle saying the most beautiful things about Barack. Each time I heard her speak about him I got tears in my eyes — because I felt so far away from that kind of bliss in my own life and perhaps even more, because I was so moved by her expressions of devotion to him. And unlike previous presidential couples, they are our age, have children the same age and (just imagine the stress of daily life on the campaign) by all accounts should have been fighting even more than we were.”

Fucking liberals. In the end, it always comes down to taking out or projecting their private failures and disappointments on the common weal, as if some fucking new Democrat program or elected official and his wife is going to save their fucking pathetic lives.

It embarrasses me they are Americans. Sure the hell aren't the kinds of Americans who founded this nation, pushed out the frontier, risked life and blood on the battlefields to end slavery or liberate Asia or Europe from tyranny. Where the fuck did these losers come from?

Ralph L said...

I think a lot of them aren't going to vote for anyone.

glenn said...

Sorry folks but the bottom line here isn't a tool like OneBarry being Pres. It's that there are 58 million people who voted for him. Sad.

Tim, do you honestly think liberals don't serve and die in service to this country? Are we going to replay that stupid argument again? Are you that much of a mouth foamer?

Obama winning reelection is about as unsexy as I can imagine an outcome. Think about how people will feel. Even his base or people like April's Apple will feel little more than relief that they didn't lose - nothing more is possible for them.

For the rest of us, it's as sexy as an any other impotent loser trying to climb back on after rubbing us with his limp ideology and accomplishing nothing for either of us. I'd rather just go back to sleep. Maybe you'll be gone when I wake up. I'm certain nothing important will happen until then. Just make sure to take your stuff with you when you go. I don't need any reminders of the mistake I made.

Tim said...

"Tim, do you honestly think liberals don't serve and die in service to this country? Are we going to replay that stupid argument again? Are you that much of a mouth foamer?"

One might wish to fully comprehend what was written before commenting, Hint: I was commenting on the liberal assholes who contrasted their failed/failing marriages with the Obama's, as if that, or they, have anything whatsoever to do with their own situation. I further commented on the all-too-obvious and all-too-common projecting by liberal assholes of their personal failings (e.g., the ongoing "Act Out on Wall Street" like so many spoiled per-schoolers nonsense) onto the common weal, was if, in some alternative universe, some idiotic liberal Democrat or program stealing tax dollars from productive citizens, could possibly mend their poor, fractured lives.

Otherwise, I know that, statistically speaking, a very few liberals do in fact serve their nation, fewer still in combat arms - so no, I don't honestly think liberals don't serve and die in service to this country - just far fewer than conservatives. But much more than conservatives in wanting government to fix what they themselves could only fix themselves, but they dare not try.

Who the fuck ever looks at a candidates marriage and compares it to their own? Unbelievable - unless you know liberals.

wv: estotera - this earth. Indeed so. We're doomed.

Tim said...

"Sorry folks but the bottom line here isn't a tool like OneBarry being Pres. It's that there are 58 million people who voted for him. Sad."

Yes. Exactly my point. 58 million votes for cannibalizing America's future. Idiocracy run amok.

Will the willfully blind "law prof" try to vote for the clearly ineligible Usurper again? What would really be sexy is if Obama is prevented from running because of Minor v. Happersett:

"The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners."

Obama is not a natural born Citizen, not that the "law prof" cares about that. What do they teach at that school?

Don't Tread 2012 said...

Right.

Because Zero's election is absolutely critical, and the welfare of the country is secondary.

The I-president can't help but personalize things...grinding it out??? I suppose its fitting language from a person leading a complete screwing of *certain* citizens.

Did anyone notice if he was smiling?

Christopher in MA said...

Tim, you said it much better than I ever could. Anyone who "thinks" elections are sexy, or would vote for a candidate who would vomit such nonsense ought to be forcibly stripped of their right to vote and given nothing sharper to play with than a rubber ball.

Elections are merely an opportunity to select the ignorant, lying thief who will steal more from your enemy than from you.

To paraphrase an observation which I am too lazy to google to attribute: within the space of 220-ood years, we have gone from Washington, Adams, Marshall and Webster to Obama, Biden, Sotomayor and Pelosi. One wonders just how much of that 'progress' a nation can stand.

AllenS said...

Christopher,

You need to understand who was allowed to vote when the country was first founded. Now take a look at who is allowed to vote now. There's your problem.

Don't Tread 2012 said...

Furthermore this type of 'language' only works with dependent, progressive types.

Independence suggests an immunity from such blather.
