Obama at Fundraiser: ‘People spend more time thinking about the next election than they do thinking about the next generation’

Barack Obama

He said this without a hint of irony, apparently. He’s obsessed with raising money and trying to help the Democrats regain the House in 2014. He’s talking about the next election.

Project much, Bammy?

President Obama at a fundraiser in Chicago on Wednesday told Democratic donors the party had a “great chance” of retaking the House in 2014.

Speaking at an event for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in his hometown, Obama blamed congressional Republicans for holding up his second-term agenda and urged supporters to redouble their efforts to win back the House.“One of the best ways to work around it is to have a Democratic House of Representatives,” Obama said.

“We’ve got a great chance of taking back the House.  And I’m going to be working tirelessly wherever I get the opportunity to make the case to the American people that our ideas are the right ones,” he added.

Obama said he regretted the partisan gridlock in Washington.

“We’ve got a politics that’s stuck right now,” said the president. “And the reason it’s stuck is because people spend more time thinking about the next election than they do thinking about the next generation.”

People such as Obama, of course. He runs around to fundraisers on seemingly a daily basis while GOP donors have been cowed into silence thanks to his IRS scandal. But no, he’s not the one focused on the next election. Sheesh.

    That’s what the field of psychology would consider textbook projecting.

    “Psychological projection was first conceptualized by Sigmund Freud as a defence mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world instead. Thus, projection involves psychically expelling one’s negative qualities onto others, and is a common psychological process. Theoretically, projection and the related projective identification reduces anxiety by allowing the unconscious expression of the unwanted unconscious impulses or desires through displacement.”

    This is a perfect example of what in Heck is wrong. This over-sold hack from Chicago is able to accuse everyone BUT himself of being concerned with elections..while he’s scrounging for campaign cash. And he’ll probably get away with it.

    “obama said he regretted the partisan gridlock in Washington.”

    Translation: obama regrets that there is any other party besides Democrat. obama doesn’t want to consult, negotiate, or compromise. He wants to dictate and that’s complicated by the fact that Americans still have the right to vote and some of those Americans have managed to elect Republicans to Congress.
