    President Obama declares a new war....

    ......on lobbyists, Brogers and special interests in the way of his agenda


    Bring it on!
    President Obama says special interests will fight him on his new $3.6 trillion budget proposal - and he's ready to do battle.
    In his weekly radio and Web address Saturday, Obama said the banking, insurance and energy industries are sure to buck him on issues like cutting off big tax breaks.
    "I know they're gearing up for a fight as we speak. My message to them is this: So am I," he said.
    "The system we have now might work for the powerful and well-connected interests that have run Washington for far too long, but I don't. I work for the American people," the President said.
    "I didn't come here to do the same thing we've been doing or to take small steps forward, I came to provide the sweeping change that this country demanded when it went to the polls in November."
    Obama, who presented his budget proposal earlier this week, said he's ready for a major brawl if one is necessary to advance his agenda on education, clean energy and health care.
    Insurers, for example, may not like having to "bid competitively to continue offering Medicare coverage," Obama said, "but that's how we'll help preserve and protect Medicare and lower health care costs for American families."
    While Obama called his record budget "a threat to the status quo" of Washington, the GOP said not much has changed and government still wants to spend way too much.
    In the weekly Republican address, North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr warned against wild spending, saying "every time Congress and the President spends a dollar, it's actually a dollar plus interest" future generations will have to pay back.
    "It seems that every morning you pick up the newspaper, you're reading about another multibillion-dollar government spending plan being proposed or even worse, passed," Burr said.
    "The numbers are so large, and the deficits so staggering, it's difficult for the average person to imagine how much money we're talking about," he continued. "We become numb to what the dollar figures really mean, or the obligation that accompanies them."

    He's declared war on prosperity, not "special interest." Look at all the garbage in his bills. Millions to certain businesses/industries. He's all about sending your tax dollars to subsidize failing businesses.

    I hope he fails.

    "Lower health care costs" By spending an additional $600+ billion.

    Do people honestly believe this?

    I understand why you disagree but that's a bit extreme, he fails we all fail.

    Couldn't be more wrong... You should listen to Rush Limbaugh's speech at CPAC today... he covers that very topic perfectly.

    I hope he fails at implementing his radical agenda. So does every other conservative. Some might just not say it so bluntly.

    Have you ever listened to Limbaugh? Probably not more than a few soundbites.

    I'd advise watching his speech at CPAC, if you are interested in actually knowing the true Limbaugh. You might become a regular listener.

    I'll give it a listen, I admit all I do hear are his selected sound bites from other people.

    Part 1. The rest are in the same guy's "More from user" tab.

    It's over an hour long, so set aside some time and watch the entire thing, not just the first part, if you're serious. It is worth it.

    seems that guy only has 4 or 5 parts up. Might want to wait for a complete upload. Apologies.

    It really was a great speech. I really wish people would listen to it, but I don't have high hopes.

    I used to watch his show all the time in the 90's (I so turned him on - pun intended). I like some of his positions, just like I like a lot of conservative positions, but I just can't stand the man himself (I just see him as a big hypocrite - like most people in politics and religion - I had to lump them together because I have Ted Haggard and company on my mind right now ).

    I swear if we bail out these auto companies again I will go crazy. Let bad business ideas FAIL. I would support using the money to BUY one of the manufacturers (say GMC just because I like them) and make all taxpayers shareholders (that'll boost sales pretty quickly and help make us a bit more money along the way - plus they'll be answerable to us and maybe push better fuel standards, or alternative fuels - I still want engine mods to increase gas mileage by an appreciable rate). Screw giving them money without limit, I want to own GMC dangit!!

    I don't think we can ever find a president who can meet the expectations of the entire citizens. Because there are different parties with different goals, there will always be many citizens who will not agree with decision of opposite party. Besides, we should not blur the line between patroitism and partism. Country should always come first.
