51% Does Not a Mandate Make. A Press Pass, on the Other Hand…

We held our first post-reelection post-partisan post-racial news conference yesterday:

With respect to the issue of mandate, I’ve got one mandate. I’ve got a mandate to help middle-class families and families that are working hard to try to get into the middle class.  That’s my mandate.  That’s what the American people said.  They said:  Work really hard to help us.  Don’t worry about the politics of it; don’t worry about the party interests; don’t worry about the special interests.  Just work really hard to see if you can help us get ahead -- because we’re working really hard out here and we’re still struggling, a lot of us.  That’s my mandate.

a man-date?

Unless he’s following in Jennifer Granholm’s footsteps by appearing on “The Dating Game,”

the only man-date he got on November 6 was from the coalition of the aggrieved, deranged and lazy.


Re. the Fiscal Cliff: , Big Guy felt compelled to warn all the good little boys and girls that if the do-nothing Congress doesn’t do what he wants, they’ll be finding a whole lot less in their “holiday” stockings this year:

If despite the election, if despite the dangers of going over the fiscal cliff and what that means for our economy, that there’s too much stubbornness in Congress that we can't even agree on giving middle-class families a tax cut, then middle-class families are all going to end up having a big tax hike.  And that’s going to be a pretty rude shock for them, and I suspect will have a big impact on the holiday shopping season, which, in turn, will have an impact on business planning and hiring, and we can go back into a recession.

And while technically, going “back into a recession”  would be called a “double-dip,”

in actuality it will constitute a record breaking quadruple back-flip. Off the cliff.

backflip off the cliff“FORWARD!”

Still, the Obots do constitute a slim majority of 51%  - due in large part to the opposing coalition of the disaffected, discouraged and distraught that decided not voting was a meaningful way to dissent. (How’s that workin’ out for you?)

There were many other highlights from the presser which you can read or watch right here, in case you missed any of it (and who didn’t?) including Big Guy defending his little womyn. No, not Lady M, she can take care of herself, Susan Rice:

As I’ve said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. 

Which raises the questions: did she mis-misunderstand the intelligence that had been provided to her, did she lie, or did the people who provided her with the intelligence lie? It’s one of the above.

If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me.  And I’m happy to have that discussion with them.  But for them to go after the U.N. Ambassador [U.S. Ambassador to the U.N – I know, it’s a nit], who had nothing to do with Benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.

And if she had nothing to do with Benghazi why was she the one sent out to lie to do the 5 major network TV shows?

Butt let’s be perfectly clear, if you want to take a swing at his little womyn, you’re going to have to get past Big Guy first. Which probably won’t be as hard as you may think.

BO also addressed Ed Henry’s yes/no question re. Benghazi:

On 9/11, as Commander-in-Chief, did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives?

by responding in standard Big Guy defensive rhetoric:

But as I’ve said repeatedly, if people don’t think that we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who I sent there and who were carrying out missions on behalf of the United States, then you don’t know how our Defense Department thinks or our State Department thinks or our CIA thinks.  Their number-one priority is obviously to protect American lives.  That’s what our job is.

Ed’s just lucky BO didn’t threaten to punch him out, as I understand that’s our new official stance towards uncooperative reporters.

And you sure don’t want to miss journOlist Christie Parsons congratulating Big Guy on his win, telling him:

“I’ve never seen you lose —”

Fail, maybe. Obama-Library_03Butt lose? Never. That’s what our Unions and coalition of malcontents are for.

trumka drumming up the votesNow get you’re a**es out there and “dig up” 10 votes each, got it?

Christie then continued, commenting on that one State Representative race he lost before his Chicago roots took hold and he learned how to effectively take out his opponents ala Alinsky’s Rules:

“I wasn’t looking that one time.”

Yeah, we know Christie. None of you ever do.

So: what does it cost to win an election these days?

  • Obama Phones: $1.5 million, 
  • Womyn’s contraceptives: $900,000 billion,
  • Green Energy initiatives: $2.3 trillion…

Butt a Press pass? PRICELESS!!!!!!!
