Obama wants to hear Romney's ideas.

Unlike most Republicans, Obama is actually willing to listen to the other side.

LOL...angry..He answered every question and he's the President. You must of missed the two most petulant men in Washington, McCain and Lindsey Grahmn spew faux venom earlier. Im getting so sick of McCain and his sore loserism. He needs to get over it. He hasn't been taken seriously since his concession speach. LG has always been a hack of little consequence.

Why, even though I think Clinton was a better President, Obama, is such a breath of fresh air, compared to the guy he replaced.

Obama, "I was given a mandate to help the middle class people of America" (or something like these words).

Bush, "I have political capital (with not even a 35 vote difference in the EC, vs 130 for Obama) and I intend to spend it!"

Class vs an ass. Calm and cool President we have now.

I thought it went extremely well.

One of thing things which stood out was Obama mentioned he was planning to talk with Mitt Romney to discuss Romney's ideas for improving the economy. I think this is a true sign of great leadership. Obama shows he is open to ALL ideas from both sides of the isle.

Obama also praised Romney for his work in the Olympics.

Obama also mentioned he wanted to hear ideas from both Republicans and Democrats to deal with the Bush tax cuts, which are set to expire in January.

Below is a video of the conference on YouTube streamed from The White House:

Obama feigns compromise, in turn brings it to the point of conflict, divides segments of the country and all intentionally.

All the while creating enemies for the people to get riled all up about, 2% anyone?
Pretends to be a ffrien of the middle class while duping them.
He is a 1%'er himself.

That is the Community Organizational way and the methods he has learned well and executed very successfully.

* Obama did not demonize the 2%. Grass roots media did it.
* Fox and conservative media dupes the middle class while pretending to advocate for it.
* Obama admits to being in the 1% and is raising his own taxes.
It is right wing media that has divided the country over 35 years. Limbaugh started the ball rolling, speaking for the republican corporate 1%.
