Obama hails 'extraordinary sacrifice' of bureaucrats

President Obama hailed the “extraordinary sacrifice” of government bureaucrats Tuesday, blasting “a political climate where folks too often talk down government for cheap applause.”

Speaking to a gathering of some of the best-paid and most senior civil servants in Washington, Obama bemoaned that “Americans don’t trust government like we used to.”

In an apparent swipe at congressional Republicans, the president said the eroding trust could be partially attributed to “a very deliberate strategy of trying to undermine government” and “political opportunism” from “those who think the market is king and there isn't any room for regulatory efforts.”

The president also criticized media coverage of the civil service, saying the federal government rarely garnered coverage when things were going well.

“Doing your job right often means nobody hears about you,” Obama said. “They only report when something goes wrong, or when there's a shutdown and somebody notices, ‘Oh we need that.’ ”

“It’s easy copy for the press to focus on the one thing that goes wrong instead of the 99 things that go right,” he added.

I think he has the numbers wrong .. it is more like 99% of things wrong to 1% of things right ,.. I'm trying to come up with the 1% .. any thoughts  ?

So, now Obama wants to give out Merit Awards to the IRS and VA along with their bonuses for lying and fraud against the American people?

oh, those poor babies...let the gnashing of teeth and renting of shirts abound!

Cry me a freaking river already...

Thank you all you morons who voted for this anti-american pos commie muslim weenie boy....You should be so proud of yer dumb ass selves...We have got to rid ourselves of this piece of commie/muslim TURD!!! He is the biggest liar Ive ever heard and an anti-AMERICAN pos...

GOOD GRIEF ANOTHER SICK "JOKE" ON AMERICA ..Is anyboby buying this +%#@$@$^&&*%

"I wonder what 99 things that right" he is referring to?

There is in our affairs at home, a middle way between untrammeled freedom of the individual and the demands for the welfare of the whole nation. This way must avoid government by bureaucracy as carefully as it avoids neglect of the helpless. Eisenhower. State of the Union Address, Feb. 2, 1953

There was more intelligence and compassion in Eisenhower's little finger than in Obama's entire body.

Ditto

Well, barry, I'm old enough to be your "granny" and I sure as h--l don't trust the "gubmint" either.  As for the "99 things that go right"- -have no "clue" what those might be, except they were "things" in your "playbook" that went "your way" and AGAINST the US Constitution!

WHERE still waiting for that One Thing that would go RIGHT !!!!!

This is what you hear when he talks to the STUPID.  They only hear what he wants the to hear anyway - AND THEY BELIEVE HIM.  Grubber was right, Americans are STUPID. 

FYI - the market IS king. Or at least it was until this commie SOB got his hands on it! That's what happened to OUR economy people.  

Federal bureaucrats make twice as much as their counterparts in the private sector. Moreover these self righteous people hate the private sector. In Washington we commonly hear them state-we're not for profit. They promote the idea that they are semi divine beings put here to govern those of us who make the country work.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
