Obama claims he's not ideological, but a 'practical guy'; Practical guy then blames GOP, 'messy democracy'

No, really, President Obama shamelessly said that he’s not ideological during his interview on “Meet the Press” this morning.

With a straight face! Viewers could not keep a straight face, however.

Do your sides ache yet? Keep holding them, because it gets worse. Mr. Practical then goes onto blame everyone else, natch, for his failures and poor leadership, particularly on the fiscal cliff.

Leadership!

Also, pesky old democracy itself is to blame as well.

Not his fault! It’s totally messy and stuff.

Will the GOP listen to such advice?

Will it even matter, or is this all just kabuki theater again?

Stay tuned.

    We will blame the GOP for this whole mess. And our allies in the media will help push that agenda too.

    We libs managed to trick 65% of America who voted into blaming Bush for the economy! If we can do that, imagine what we can do to make sure the GOP gets blamed?

    You can not defeat us until you start to play dirty yourselves.

    • GaryTheBrave

      You know, Mark, I actually agree with you. It is long past time the Republican candidates get just as dirty as the Dems.

      From McCain chastising that radio host in Cincy after he used Obama’s middle name, to Romney refusing to acknowledge or even refer to anything during the Bush administration, the GOP has been too dainty in recent years.

    • Lady_Penguin

      Actually, you’re right. Thus far, the GOP is the party of cowards and weak-kneed walk all over us idiots. Not much more to be said.

    • BeeKaaay

      Correct. But the RINOpublican party has been taken over by Marxists, so they will aid and abet you as much as possible. We have a one party system.

    • TocksNedlog

      Truest thing you’ve EVER written.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Well at least instead of trolling you’re actually stating facts. Well done.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Who is this ‘we’? Aren’t you some shoe-scraping living in your mum’s basement, debasing yourself to your Queen? Kinda tough to jump on the bandwagon when there’s an entire ocean between you and it.

        The internet is borderless.

          Tell that to the Chinese living under Communist oppression, even on the net. Tell that to the UN’s would-be Masters of the Universe who think the net is dangerous and needs to be controlled. It’s always, ALWAYS, the so-called “Progressives” (e.g. leftards) who want to be the dictators, who would impose their totalitarianism in the name of “The People” or “Fairness” or “Land Reform” or “Climate Change” or whatever the fad-buzzword of the moment is. I think the latest has to do with making honest citizens more vulnerable to criminals, but you are our resident Progressive-totalitarian wannabe, so you tell us.

    • EEKman

      Yeah cause 2 unfunded wars, a massive tax cut and a massive medicare expansion under bush had nothing to do with our current deficit. Yeah, it was all that socialist Obama

  • GaryTheBrave

    Obama’s idea of negotiating is, “Do as I say and that will be compromise.” The only man-date he has is if he and plugs go bar hopping together.

    There is more substance to single-ply tissue paper than there is to this idiot, and it’s more useful as well.

  • http://twitter.com/jburke_nc James Burke

    Can you believe the stones on this guy. Obama tells Gregory he is not driven by an ideological agenda and that putz can sit there with a straight face. This period will go down in history as the time America lost it’s Heart,Mind,and Soul !

    • GaryTheBrave

      He also has never taken a vacation during his entire tenure, dontchaknow.

    • blueniner

      Gregory should be perpwalked for his little stint last week with the ammo.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      I am amazed they allow twitter in prison……That IS where Gregory is, right?
      Oh,wait…..

  • Lady_Penguin

    He really only used one wrong word, “govern.” The word should be “rule.”

  • Steve_J

    I wonder if either of them wanted to lay back and smoke a cigarette after the “interview” was finished?

    • $23089169

      So true…what a cute little bromance they have going on!

      • WisconsinPatriot

        Kneepads, CHECK…….chapstick,CHECK……..Ready Mr. President!

  • SJ’s Dad

    Practical Guy?
    Mr. Obama, I don’t think that word means what you think it means.
    If my family were to find ourselves in debt by a ratio that is in excess of 100 times our household income, the PRACTICAL thing to do would be to rein-in spending!

    • GaryTheBrave

      “Practical Guy” is that cartoon with Peter Griffin, his wife, his son Elroy, and his daughter Pebbles. Oh yes, their dog Scooby Doo and the cat Garfield.

    • EEKman

      The federal government isn’t a family and doesn’t balance its checkbook like a family does. When your family can issue its own currency then you’ll have a point.

      • WisconsinPatriot

        EEEEK!

  • Catchance

    I don’t know about you, but my eyes can’t roll far enough back in my head.

  • Jack Deth

    I wonder if Mr. Gregory used an Oral Dam during this “interview”?

  • stuckinIL4now

    Practical? Sure he didn’t say “cracked up”?

  • gracepmc

    Yeah, nothing says practical like that behemoth Obamacare.

  • HARP2

    He is delusional.

  • MattiMuck

    We are all driven by some ideology. That’s what makes us better than the animals.

  • nc

    Oh come on. Like none of us saw this coming.

    It’s absolutely disgusting that this stuff doesn’t surprise or shock us anymore.

  • BeeKaaay

    Obama is a Marxist ideologue. So he lies again.

  • $30423294

    Obama: I am not speaking this sentence.

    Media: Obama said nothing.

    Philosophical joke. Funny to me anyway.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      “Ceci n’est pas une president.”

  • TocksNedlog

    He’s NOT an ideological guy; just ask his wife — er, Morgan Fairchild.

  • $30423294

    Our President’s shocking statement made me want to look up ideologue in the OED.

    Of course, an ideologue is an adherent to an ideology.

    What is an ideology, Mr. President?

    An ideology is a system of ideas, especially an economic or political theory… regarded as justifying actions… a system to be maintained irrespective of events, i.e., irrespective of its devastating consequences.

    If Mr. Obama is not an ideologue the word has no meaning.

  • TocksNedlog

    Even Stephanie Cutter giggle-snorted when she heard that one.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      She learned to lie from him.

  • MaddMedic

    Reblogged this on INTERNED in Northfield!!!.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    For this pathetic state of affairs, I blame 4 years of GOP. (duh, I know)Everybody knew what Obama was since 2008. For 4 years they’ve let…no, HELPED… this fascist get away with Alinsky’g the opposition and trolling America. We won’t even go INTO all the regulations he’s put through that they fail to even discuss…they just say “oh regulations – bad”.

    They should have been calling him and the Dems out all along. In fact, the only consistent person in any type of high-ish profile having done so is Michelle Malkin.

    Every single time they gave an interview they should have been pounding at Obama and his cronies instead of pretending they wouldn’t get “blamed” if they were ~civil (meaning obtuse or just cowardly). Meanwhile, he’s Mr. Celebrity crooning songs with Hollywood. FML.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZR4D5E2WTOI4MSKK7AJS6EG3OA Everybodys All American

      …the media has been very complicit in the Obama agenda. Without a fair and just fourth estate this is what you’ll end up with every single time. Dictators come to power under these exact circumstances.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZR4D5E2WTOI4MSKK7AJS6EG3OA Everybodys All American

    Practically speaking. Obama is full of himself.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    I know Lindsay Graham must be tired and props to him for at least having a pulse but CHEESH. On Fox next to Feinstein not challenging her when she’s droning on about movie theaters and schools. The 2nd amendment is to defend against foreign and domestic enemies TYRANNY, is that so hard to say out loud???

    • BeautifulAmerica

      How about adding the word “TREASON” and applying that to obamao? Prosecution of the marxist fraud will prevent Tyranny.

  • blueniner

    Has Gregory got his head out Nerobamas azz yet?

  • john1gun

    I wonder how many takes they had to go through before he said that without laughing out loud,

  • http://twitter.com/jburke_nc James Burke

    Clinton had Lewinsky and Obama had Gregory. Did Gregory do the interview in a blue dress?

    Is the only reason we haven’t impeached this fool yet because Biden/Boehner would be just as bad, if not worse?
