    "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

    That wasn't Obama's only jab at Republicans today.
    In an exchange with Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) about the proposal, the president shot back: "I won,"

    SNIP

    "I will trump you on that."

    It didn't take long for Obama's incredible arrogance to show itself.

    The socialist idealogue I know is there is about to come out of hiding.

    You a funny guy, you make it sound like Obama called them in to say he won.

    Apparently Eric Cantor flexed his muscle and was telling the president what the American people want and about his many constituents. That was when he said, "I won" meaning the majority of voters support his economic agenda. I guess that does trump Eric.

    Most who understand politics said Obama had to do it to set the tone that he won't be bullied. He will work with you but the GOP has to remember the Dems have both houses and the white house so they won't be treated like they don't know what time it is.

    That was an arrogant and rude response from Obama. Remember, that was the same tactic that Bush took for the least four years, and see what it got? If you hated it with Bush, you will hate it more with Obama.

    This was an immature response from an immature and inexperienced leader who is way in over his head. Hopefully, he will see the light before too long.

    There is no evidence that most people support his economic policies. If you remember, he didn't win on that issue. He won on other issues, for the most part.

    1. Why should we hate Obama more if he acts the same as Bush?

    2. Are you also saying Bush was immature and inexperienced since they reacted the same?

    No, he was voted in because of the economy and the fact that he was the only candidate who campaigned on an economic recovery plan... Unless you call the GOP position of do nothing a plan.

    Not sure. Ask someone who believes that. I don't hate either, BTW.

    Yes, in some respects, though he had executive experience which Obama has none of (and it is showing, BTW).

    Nonsense. Obama campaigned on the War and getting out of Iraq and restoring the image of America. His theme was change.

    The GOP position was not a "do nothing" plan. It was somewhat different though not much.

    President Obama needs to learn from Bush's mistakes in '04. If you recall, Bush won re-election and then proclaimed he was going to spend some political capital. However he did not have that capital to spend. President Obama has much good will and support right now. However if he pushes too much he will quickly run through his political capital.

    Read your post, you said we should hate Obama more.

    I've seen people do a job for 10, 20 and 30 years and still not be good at the position. Time at the task is not the only indicator of mastery of the position. If that were the case, Palin was more ready then McCain and we know that wasn't true.

    Early on he did but he was loosing in the polls until the economy tanked. That's why the McCain campaign said if they can't change the subject from the economy they would loose for sure. The economy clearly decided this election.

    I get the impression that Obama's arrogance will not allow him to learn some things quickly.

    Is this is the quote from PL that you are referring to?

    I sure hope not, but it's the only reasonably close one to match your comment that I saw.

    Funny that you now revise it. You had stated:
    in reply to this:
    Rediculous.....hating a behavior is not the same as hating the person.... and some do like that word 'hate' and to accuse others of 'hating ' peiople when clearly it is not in the content of their post!


    BTW, in reference to hating a behavior and hating it more.... it is a logical deduction if folks say behavior "X" is really irritating, and then others come along to replace the person with behavior "X" and then subjects these folks to the same irritating behavior..... the first time they were irritated it bothered them enough to complain.... when they thought all of that changed with a new person, they were delighted until they found that person to have some of the same irritating characteristics which bothered them in the former person. One they got rid of by his leaving office: But now they are more sensitive to that same irritation.... and find they must endure at least another 4 years..... :tongue3: Appropriate retribution I say!:laugh: But maybe God will have mercy on us and not extend that 4 years to 40 years of wilderness for complaining!:thumbsup:

    Where? The only thing I said was that "If you did, then you will." I didn't say "should." Please be more careful quoting.

    True, but experience does matter.

    Many men did many great things with no experience...

    GW had no experience in leading a revolution.

    None of our founding fathers had experience with starting a country or writing a constitution.

    This nation was founded and has always been lead by men with no experience.
