'They talk about me like a dog'

By JONATHAN MARTIN | 9/6/10 7:02 PM EDT Updated: 9/7/10 10:10 AM EDT

MILWAUKEE — Two years after appearing here on Labor Day to kick off the final stretch of his historic campaign, President Barack Obama returned Monday to speak to union members, in a starkly different political environment.

The Democrats, on the ascent at Obama’s 2008 Laborfest visit, are now unmistakably a party on defense.

The president touched on his historic accomplishments — healthcare reform and new financial regulations — but spent more time discussing a new infrastructure plan and warning what a Republican victory would mean.

By rolling out a $50 billion transportation proposal two months before the midterm elections and twice mentioning statements from “the Republican who thinks he’s going to take over as speaker,” Obama testified to the straits Democrats now find themselves in: They urgently need to convince voters that they’re working to bolster the still-wobbly economy — and find a reason to give the electorate pause about voting for the GOP to register their anger about the status quo.

The planes, trains and automobiles idea — which White House aides admitted wouldn’t create jobs until 2011 — may win a fleeting headline, but with early voting starting later this month in some states, Democrats' window for persuasion is closing. Increasingly, voters’ minds are made up when it comes up to big-picture issues. That means Obama and the Democrats now must narrowcast their efforts by giving the faithful a reason to turn out, and by reminding the remaining undecided voters that, while they may be unhappy, the alternative is a return to what they repudiated in the last two election cycles.

“They’re betting that between now and November, you’re going to come down with amnesia,” the president said of the GOP. Wearing neither a jacket nor a tie, and with shirt sleeves rolled up, a feisty Obama sought to rev up a few thousand union members — the very voters he won two years ago, and whom Democrats need to show up at the polls in November to mitigate GOP gains.

He deployed many of his usual lines about how Republicans are to blame for the country’s economic problems, and singled out — without mentioning him by name — would-be House Speaker John Boehner.

The Ohio Republican, Obama said, had opposed Democratic efforts to provide state aid to save the jobs of public employees and the closing of a tax loophole that encouraged companies to send jobs overseas.

More telling, Obama offered an aside that spoke to his diminished state and captured the mood of a president and party under assault.

“They talk about me like a dog,” Obama said of his political opponents. “That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true.”

Like a yellow dog Democrat maybe. Woof! :p

He's howling at the Moon with that line of bullshit he is putting out.

I wonder how many days from now will that sucker be giving another speech from TBT.

I consider his comment offensive to dogs, and animals in general. Animal rights activists ought to be protesting it.

Dear Leader is much lower than the animal. He has to look up to see pond scum.

It's not surprising. Hurt dogs will bark.

With ears that big you could mistake the Obumbler for Dumbo the Elephant.

Don't we all but would you vote for one just because it was the "right" color/breed/sex?

I find it quite offensive. I talk about dogs in a very loving manner. There's always that old saying, "If you want a friend, get a dog". Obama isn't my friend. I'd never talk as nicely to him as I do to Blue, Darlene and Xena. :D

BTW, I think he's a big whiny baby. Bush took much more abuse and didn't whine about it.

QFMFT As much flak Bush took from the left and their accomplices in the media, he pretty much took it in strike. Obama and his cast of idiots do nothing but whine about it.

Given what's about to happen to congressional Democrats come November, and the similar appearances of the Capital Dome and the top of a fire hydrant, the dog comparison is a very good analogy.

It's a naughty dog that pisses on his own party. :D

I have a feeling this guy really takes this stuff personally, our first truly psycho president.

No doubt about it. Those American car dealerships that did not donate to his campaign (about 800) were all shut down. Not a one that did donate was shut down.

All the safe guards that were built into the constitution yet there is still not a thing we can do to stop a corrupt socialist president, what the hell is wrong!

The Marine Corp book Warfighting states that the ability of a group to hold a position is dependent on the commanders wiliingness to hold that position. We have not shown a willingness to hold our position on matters relating to the Constitution.

And the leadership of the other side is quite willing to take casualties while they advance their agenda. Obama is perfectly willing to lose his majorities for a few years if he can restructure the rules to return them to power.
