Obama: “Wrongheaded” Americans Must Trust Government More

President Obama today said Americans had developed the “wrongheaded” view that Washington won’t look out for them, a fallacy he said was stoked by conservatives and their philosophy that says people are “on their own.”

Obama spoke at a fundraiser for congressional Democrats in La Jolla, California:

And part of what contributes to that is the sense that nobody in Washington cares about them; or what people in Washington care about is their own jobs, their own positions, their own perks, squabbling between the two parties.

And so not only have we seen in Congress, in particular, over the last three to four years an utter failure to address the concerns of ordinary middle-class families, but that reinforces, then, people’s sense that there’s no point in us getting involved at all, and increases apathy or a lack of confidence in our government . . .

The truth of the matter is, is that the reason that we have not seen Washington address the core concerns of too many working families around the country is that you have a party that has been captive to an ideology, to a theory of economics, that says those folks, they’re on their own and government doesn’t have an appropriate role to play.

POLL: Did Obama direct the IRS persecution of the Tea Party groups?

I do not trust the federal government at all.

I DONT TRUST THE TINPOT DICTATTA as far as I could throw any of them!  I can't stand the arrogant sob!

Someone please tell this egotistical Bastard We are the Free People of America and the government only job is to keep the American People safe from it's enemies, not to dictate to us on how we live, how our children are schooled and by " No Means Have Any Control of Our Medical Care " This Progressive Cancer that is spreading throughout our schools, college, and university's.

Look at the news media, we can not trust them to report on anything truthfully they lie cover up distort anything to hide the " Truth "   The Truth Is The Obama Administration Is Destroying America !

"wrongheaded"   Barack Obama is Marxist-Socialist.  (Socialism doesn't work.)  He is Dysfunctional and suffers from a form of Munchausen's Syndrome (evidence by his words "Washington won't look out for them", people are "on their own". But WE are "wrongheaded".

Names: How about some of the Names of the attendees and/or donors being published by our media ? 


I dont want him "looking out" for me - I want him and all other commies gone

Pete F: Right! This complete administration needs to be flushed into the sewer!

We did not have this many problems until Obama came on the scene!

This man (?) does not have a brain in his head! He is a disgrace to America and

his whole family should be deported! Lets take America back from this POS!

It is about time he figured it out. Get gov't out of the way and let the economy grow with less chicanery from D.C. and regulations, executive orders, etc. And yes, BO, we KNOW gov't doesn't care. It's all about you, isn't it?

Government must work hard to earn our trust.....

remember this the government works for the people not the other way round!! check your American constitution!!

Evan, that is the way the system is supposed to work, not the way it does. The toilet needs to be flushed.

Once lost the same people can not re-earn trust. Once a liar always a liar.

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
