What the H___ is he talking about? The most amatuerish answer I've ever heard. Obama reminds me of a little boy who wants to be up in front of the class for attention all the time.
I guess everybody getting a shot includes the crony capitalist ventures of Solyndra, Abound Solar, Beacon Power, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt and AES subsidiary Eastern Energy...those are just the green energy companies who've filed for bankruptcy http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/070312-617072-abound-solar-files-for-bankruptcy-protection.htm?p=full
Obama talking about how his vision for full communism in America won't be realized until after his and after Joe Biden's presidency. Like he said, "We aren't going to get to socialized healthcare in one step."
The real compelling difference is that while Romney think earning and building trust is a prerequisite for leadership, Obama thinks he should just have it without question. The arrogance pouring out of Obama could not be more on display.
I had to laugh at the staging of O's segment, O towering over Croft...Plato expounding to the lesser mortals. Except everything he says is the mixed up jibberish of government speak and bureaucratese. I don't think the man has ever been forced to reason through his ideas or thoughts. Weak-minded I think sums him up.
Dwyght D. Eisenhower once defined leadership with a piece of string. He layed it out in a straight line on a table and pushed the end of the string. The string snaked up but the front didn't move. He layed out the string again, and, with his finger, pulled the string from the front. The string followed his finger wherever he moved it all over the table. Tha folks is LEADERSHIP-From the front.
Obama is such a socialist. I'm so sick and tired of hearing the socialist buzz words of "fairness" and "justice," which he is implying that both do NOT exist in this country right now. Bunk. There is a reason so many people want to come HERE and not stay in their own countries. There is a reason people see more opportunity here than in any other country in the world. Those people now first hand that we have more fairness and justice in this country than on in any other country on this planet. The only one who doesn't seem to believe this is Obama, and it shows. There is never enough "fairness" or "justice" for a rank socialist, because they want to pull down everyone to what their vision of fairness is, not bring it up to what our Founding Fathers envisioned it to be. And THAT is the difference and that was why Obama must lose. Because, when it comes to fairness and justice, I'll listen any day to people like John Adams, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, or Benjamin Franklin. Obama is the one who is simply noise in this discussion.
Obama is talking to those that don't want to think for themselves and I am sure he feels like he is "helping" them. But he really is "helping" the cause of controlling the masses. He is a "piece" in the pie that is working towards this goal for the world! It may still be "years" away but little by little our freedoms are being taken away! It is time to wake up and start by voting him out in November!
Why is it that every thing Obama says is pretty much the opposite of what he does?
I mean, sure you can always spin a President's words to mean something bad, but with Obama, all you have to do is take his words, and put them side-by-side with his deeds.
He's the first reasonable, nice-sounding, calm, distinguished master of malevolent policy I've ever seen or studied from history. You really want to like a guy like that. Then you find out he's taken your wallet, dinged up the Packard, scratched all your records, and threw up in your raccoon coat.
Or whatever it is you kids have these days.
Mr. Obama, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this blog is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Romney's far more assured and firm in his answer. Oddly enough, liberals, that makes him more trustworthy. He's stating his thoughts directly. Oddly enough, liberals, that makes him a better leader because his thoughts directly correspond to what's better for America. Oddly enough, liberals, his answer is just what it sounds like. The only smoke and mirrors that might be seen in his campaign is a bit of the mud, there is no smoke and mirrors present on the man himself.
So maybe, liberals, you should realize who this man is. So maybe, liberals, you should realize that your 'Messiah', that your end-all, be-all is what Romney is not. Smoke and mirrors, and he can only use that against Romney.
Romney emphasized trust and experience as the main components of leadership.
Obama described vision (ideology) that hopefully everyone will someday realize.
Regarding Obama, he could be a leader if he simply stepped aside and resigned. He is a destructive liability to this country.
The media are not news reporters they are Hollywood reporters and Obama cover up reporters. The media and Hollywood have been desensitizing kids for years and we have a bunch of idiots voting.
I suggest you and your democrat 'know alls' watch "The Project" on The Blaze TV at 8 PM on Wed 8/26 & 8/27. On both the internet and Direct TV.
Uncovered document that the FBI has had and wouldn't release. The three step plan the Muslims intend to take over America and they are in the last step. You can spew all the hate about Beck you want but, the truth lives there not in your lame stream media.
Leaders must be hardworking (he isn't), honest (he isn't), have character and integrity (he doesn't), expect people to be accountable and responsible for their own lives (he doesn't), be humble (he isn't), have compassion and respect for others whether they agree w you or not (he doesn't). Belief in our free market principles (he doesn't).
All of these are a short list of qualities of a leader for the USA and he does not even believe in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, National Anthem or wearing a flag pin.
This side-by-side is another revelation of the degree of wisdom learned by each man. First, Mr. Obama doesn't seem to know our history. He usually references Lincoln when asked about any reference point in US history. That's as far back as he's capable of going, which is our 1st clue that the Founders' brilliant leadership qualities are of little interest to him. The question was "What are the essential qualities of a leader, in your mind?" Mr. Romney answers with the wisdom of experience, listing character & human relations qualities that must be present in Level 5 leaders. Mr. Obama defaults with a list of his wishes for "results." Not even close to the content of the question. I doubt he could answer this in any setting, as he is just the shiny bronze hood ornament of a bigger engine at work.
"...he is just the shiny bronze hood ornament of a bigger engine at work."
Man, did you get that right! 100 likes for your comment if I could!
Thank you, Maxine. Isn't it the truth? Hood ornaments distract the eye, falsely impress, are a dime a dozen, and are usually not attached securely.
Godspeed to you and other fellow patriots who will get us shifted back to right of center, where we were founded. We moved too close to the far left Rulers Law and we got scorched. And we will never again be so foolish as to hire our Executive position without scrutinous interviews guided by The People and without thorough vetting UNDER the hood.
Your car analogy is great. Unfortunately the people who voted for O, would be the same people that would buy a used car from a slick talking salesman and not take it to a mechanic first to be fully checked out. Unfortunately those idiots still exist so we are going to have to out number them (and the fraudulent voters) in Nov. in order to take our country back or at least put on the breaks and make the turn in the right direction.
Heres my interpretation of the Obama ramble answer...
Interviewer: What are the essential qualities of a leader?
Dear Leader: uhhh uhhh hhh uuuu A Leader...uhhh...uh qualities and ahhh Condoms and uhh abortions free...yeh....
Barry said that part of leadership is "setting a course & vision." Ridiculous hogwash!
Those are qualities of a dreamer & a planner. They are usually good qualities, but nothing that really leads, and should be realistic, within existing framework (capitalism & liberty), with understanding on how things (business & econ) operate & their concepts.
A course & vision is much more beyond spending, authority & executive action -- certainly not to ignore gov rules & nor the Constitution.
We know that his vision (fundamentally transform) is vastly different & towards Marxism & fascism -- both left-wing ideologies -- despite the latter being called right-wing. One of the letters in NAZI is for the German word meaning socialist, just as in USSR.
His goals, agenda & proclivity were rather obvious before 11-2008, in just his words. Learning more since then shows how deep & dark his thoughts are. All that info was available before, but the lamestream media did little vetting, ignored so much & "covered up" many items.
He also said "treat" others with "respect" "dignity" blah blah. Yeah, those are nice ways to behave, but neither indicative of leading, nor strong qualities for getting positive results.
Barry’s speaking is great for leading many people — (useful idiots whom believe stuff w/out much knowledge) — to follow & hope to his utopian fantasy.
The man-child’s wording is also good at obfuscating issues, doublespeak & fallacious falsifiable crap, which is usually rather meaningless or wrong, as well as being mostly contradictory to his policies or even his previous words.
Romney's answer blew Obama's away.
Obama tries to treat everyone with respect. ROFLMAO!! When did he ever fit that into his finger pointing and calling us extreme? When did he ever denounce us constantly being called racist? He was leading the charge!
Everybody's got a shot? Yeah, right. That's why Obama keeps piling more people onto welfare...so they can realize the American dream through hard work and inginuity. ROFLMAO!!!
Obama never even answered the question. He wasn't asked what Lincoln's vision was, and he wasn't asked what he was trying to do. Listen to the question, moron.
He never really said he will be treating anyone with dignity and respect - what he means is, he intends to give the government the power to require all us citizens to treat every other citizen (muzzies 'specily) with dignity and respect. Or else.
in other words.... "Behead All those Who Insult the Prophet"
Ouch. That hits like a ton of bricks.
One thing's for sure.....that "dignity and respect" might be required of us when addressing a lib, but it will never apply to liberals trashing the he!! out of us.
Funny you mention that - I watched it again after some kind posters provided a link today. Apparently zero has finally responded to D'Souza's film accusing him of a 'smear campaign, based on illusions and lies'.
Er, yes, Mr.zero - it's based on your own book!! What a maroon - but he finally got something right.
I just Can't stomach listening to Obama anymore, Sorry I stopped the video the minute he said "annnnnnnnd". (just hate it when he says it)
He didn't even answer the question as to what are the essential qualities of a leader. He just rambled about his political beliefs. The same shit spews out of his mouth every time he opens it.
You have to love his reference to the civil war, also. That is what we will be experiencing again if he is reelected.
Ok you LIAR, what is a "fair shot"? You Mr. Lying President have been handed the best "fair shot" of any person on this planet and have managed FAIL at everything!
Obama never even answered the question. He just rambled about the same bullshit that he always rambles about. Gotta love the reference to the bloody civil war. That is what will happen again if he is reelected.
They don't necessarily agree with them, but they know where they stand. Well, I could take that two different ways.
I didn't much agree with GHW, but I loved and respected the man and knew where he stood, just as he still does stand for our troops.
I don't agree with a lot of Romney's actions as governor, but I know he loves America more than dear leader does, and respects the folks in this nation a heck of a lot more.
I don't agree with dear leader in any way, shape or form, but I know where he stands. He stands for chaos, crisis, civil unrest, islam.
Dear Leader: "I try and present a vision of an America where everyone is treated with respect (except for wealthy people who creat jobs, except for Christians, Military, Consitutional loving Americans) and treated with dignity (except for the elderly when they face the death panels coming in obama care, except for the unborn) ,.... It's how hard you work (because you didn't build that) and trustworthy (I'm from the government and I'm here to help) do you love people?" I don't know dear leader, do you love those who are tea party members and supporters? Do you love those who have wealth? Do you love those poor folks in Chicago you screwed as an ACORN lawyer? Do you love those poor that your wife kept away from the Chicago hospital which paid her 300,000 a year to do? Do you love the unborn dear leader? Do you love those babies who were born during botched abortions and left to die in garbage cans? Do you love those people who have, because of your marxisit policies, lost their jobs and their homes? Do you love our Military dear leader, when you call the cause of their death, a bump in the road? Do you love them when you put them in harms way, yet expect them to ask questions first and shoot later? Do you love our Navy Seals whom you gave information to a freaking movie director so you would be portrayed in a positive way?
No, dear leader, we know what and whom you love, and it ain't Americans.
I've made no bones on my thoughts of Romney, but I sure as he!! don't want this dictator to win if we even are allowed to have elections.
I so agreed with what you said about the word 'love', that I felt I had to leave my first comment here, though I've been reading Scoop for a long time.
A couple of points, if I may, from my perspective over in the UK, that you may agree with.
First, socialism is coercive. For all the talk of liberalism and peace and love and so forth, the inescapable fact of socialism is that it engineers its goals by coercive regulation, rather than urging them by persuasion and personal responsibility. If that's what Mr Obama means by 'setting a course', then it's not leadership, because coercion isn't leadership.
And just as you say, socialism is also divisive. Mr Obama speaks of everyone being equal, but in practice a political elite writes and rewrites the rules of the game, and gets to pick the winners and losers from among the rest, even in the matter of life itself. If that's what Mr Obama means about 'having a vision', it's not the vision of America that the Founding Fathers had, and that every American citizen inherits as both a privilege and a duty.
That common inheritance, that equality of rights given, not by government but by our Creator, without partiality to each American citizen from the greatest to the least, is the radical equality of America. And to be the foremost champion of the founding principles of America, that's leadership.
I wish I could give a thousand likes for your comment Nicholas! Well said and from experience too, living in the UK. You ought to comment more often, but it's good to know more folks are reading Scoop, even if they don't comment.
God Bless you friend over the pond!
Nicholas, there are many from Canada, and a few from your neck of the woods who comment regularly here, and we welcome you too! I can't vote, eventhough I live in the States, I'm still a Canadian citizen, but as you said, what happens here effects all nations. All of us have voices, and we all have the right to speak. I love the Right Scoop more than any other blog because he allows us to rant and speak, and most folks here are so much like family. So, I am officially welcoming you to our family! :-D
God Bless you our newest member!
Thank you so much! I've hesitated to comment because I'm not directly involved in this election. But our fates are entwined. There is a concerted effort here to paint Mr Romney as an extreme figure, and Mr Obama as the true conservative. We all need Scoop's wonderful videos to keep telling the truth so clearly, and for America to remain that 'shining city set upon a hill'. May God bless you, and your country.
I've been seeing some of your rants just now kong. Who's the superb one now? You're on quite the roll tonight too.
Thanks friend kong. I'm in a foul mood with the dear leader tonight with all of this. I've got my hair in a knott tonight. But thank you.
