    Sounds like a dictator to me. He makes the decider look like a rookie when it comes to ruling as dictator. Any off you knuckle heads care to defend his heavy handed statements?

    The latest example:

    Obama Warns: ‘Don’t Bet Against Us’ on Health Care Reform
    By Sheryl Gay Stolberg

    Before introducing Dr. Benjamin, the president issued a stern warning about the speed of the health care overhaul.President Obama had a message Monday morning for critics who say his bid for a health care overhaul is losing momentum: “Don’t bet against us.’’

    After a week-long trip overseas, Mr. Obama returned to the Oval Office to begin what advisers say will be a full-throated attempt to regain control over the debate about health care, and also the economy. Appearing in the Rose Garden to announce Dr. Regina Benjamin as his nominee for surgeon general, Mr. Obama began by taking a sharp swing at his critics.


    “I just want to put everybody on notice, because there was a lot of chatter during the week that I was gone,’’ the president said. “We are going to get this done. Inaction is not an option. For those naysayers, cynics who think that this is not going to happen: Don’t bet against us, we are going to make this thing happen because the American people desperately need it.’’

    White House officials say Mr. Obama will meet later on Monday with leading Democratic lawmakers to try to keep the legislative process on track. The president has said he would like the House and Senate to pass health care bills before they recess in August, but on Sunday some senators said they no longer believe that timeline is possible.

    A senior White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Mr. Obama’s message to the lawmakers will be that while he “understands that it’s really tough,’’ he still believes that it is essential for Congress to stick to his timeline.

    Are you really this stupid?
