    some interesting perspectives From the op-ed:

    On Tuesday, in fact, the president used these exact words when speaking to the press, “What you haven't seen before, I think from the vantage point of a lot of world leaders, is the notion that one party in Congress might blow the whole thing up if they don't get their way,” he said. Later he added, “you do not hold people hostage or engage in ransom taking to get 100 percent of your way.”

    It is exceedingly difficult to come to terms with a person who sees you as his oppressor, his kidnapper, and someone terrorizing him who might well destroy him. You aren’t likely to consider whether your assailant and jailer and would-be killer has a few good ideas, after all.

    A victim mentality would explain why the president immediately allies with anyone else he thinks might be a victim, too.
    Seeing Barack Obama as someone who has a victim mentality would explain a lot. That mentality relies on believing one has been harmed, that one was not responsible for the injuries that occurred, that one could not have prevented what happened and that the person’s suffering makes that person morally right and deserving of sympathy.

    As a young boy, Obama was, indeed, helpless.

    He was helpless to stop his father from abandoning him.

    He was helpless to stop his mother from leaving him with his grandparents.

    He was helpless to stop his white grandmother and caretaker from communicating to him her fears of black people.

    I’m not sure the president ever got over it.

    What he says here is factually true. Deniers will try and distract with some sort of pop-psychology.

    Liberals are self loathing individuals. Victims of life. And a "Community Organizer" uses this victim-hood as a weapon to collect power and foster hate. Or in other words the Democrat Platform.

    What he is saying can be applied to himself and his party as well.

    I'm not sure......it is the Tea Party Pubs who planned and executed this pushback or extortion.

    Typical of Fox to twist things.

    The Tea Partiers are doing what their constituents ask. Obama on the other hand ..... is doing who knows what. He's surely not handling this mess in the best interest of this nation. He's divided the nation, forced a partial slowdown of the federal government, instructed the Senate to effectively cease deliberations, instructed certain federal departments to discriminate against American veterans, and is unwilling to negotiate reductions in his "out of control" programs ..... programs that have added $8 trillion of national debt in 4-5 years.

    How on earth can democrats continue to support this guy and his administration after he's driven the nation to a point from which it will likely never fully recover?

    Your concern here seems a little off when you want the TP to cause this country to crash and burn.

    ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Okay I got it ... TP must mean "Tea Party". Yeh ... odd that you would say that as they are the folks leading the charge to minimize the consequences of Obama's leadership failures and $8 trillion in new debt over the last 4-5 years. Yep ... the Tea Partiers are "bad people".

    It's a shame ... hugely disappointing that people will not admit they really messed up when choosing to support Obama.

    Even the libs will yell "uncle" before long. Their defense of him is getting weaker and weaker.
    He is being outed as one of the most destructive and devisive presidents, as far as the country is concerned, ever elected.
    His election just emphasizes the "dumbing down of America"
    is for real and a serious problem.
    I think a lot of libs would already be expressing serious concern regarding Obama, if they were not so embarrassed about previously supporting him so strongly.

    One heck of a lot of non-TP folks do not want BarryCare, and want their representatives to fight against it, tooth and nail, anyway they can.

    It doesn't have anything to do with not winning elections, but everything to do with what they think is a horrible plan for them, and the country.

    It's the American way.

    Most polls have put the number of people who are willing to shut down government to fight against the ACA somewhere in the 20-30% range, which is about the support the Tea Party gets. Those numbers are likely very highly correlated.

    So every minoriity, special interest group and democrats have a right to protest, call any one that opposes them nazis,terrorists , racists and led by a president who says he will NOT negotiate is right in their actions? But the republicans and the tea party are exhorted to be holding the country hostage by not agreeing to EVERYTHING the dems want? What a joke!

    But in 2006, then Senator Obama, gave a vitriolic speech about how "unpatriotic" it was to raise the debt ceiling. And then backed up his rhetoric by voting against raising it.

    Anyone on the left care to explain this?

    Not one leftie will touch that. They can't, as it simply confirms everything the right has been saying about this guy for 5+ years.
