In an apparent attempt to rub Republicans’ noses in their defeat on the debt ceiling conflict, President Barack Obama said Thursday that they should “win an election” if they want to change his policies.


“To all my friends in Congress, understand that how business is done in this town has to change,” Obama said in a statement to reporters at the White House.

“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election. But don’t break it.”

‘Win an election’ is Obama’s new catchphrase

By CNBC.

“Go out there and win an election” may be the one thing everyone remembers about the government shutdown of 2013.

That was President Barack Obama’s mantra on Thursday, hours after Congress passed a deal to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.

Obama, widely seen as having won the fight with House Republicans, used an address to condemn Congress for the budget fight and to try and set priorities for the next year.

    What an arrogant A$$

  • Dwightmannn

    We can not win an election. . .

    We have to steal like this cur Øbama has done. I suspect that it also had something to do with the Booker win in NJ.
    Constitutional Christian Conservatives need to unite. . .

    With electronic voting we the people are not the ones counting the votes. Stalin said: It doesn’t matter who votes, what matters is who counts the votes.

    Dear Mr. President,
    With all due respect to you and your office, WE WILL – Just as soon as we can rid the Republican party of your fellow progressive socialists that operate under the guise of being Republicans.
    Admittedly this may take a few years, but thanks to YOU, sir, we are finally waking up and focusing our money to individuals instead of blindly contributing to the party where it is wasted on clandestine members of your party.
    Sincerely,
    A fellow citizen.

    Retain this article for your records. Throw this right back at democrats in the future, and ensure that you inform them that B.O. said it.

  • Monte R Stamper

    REPUBLICANS WILL START WINNING WHEN REPUBLICANS START STANDING FOR THE PRINCIPLES THAT THEY WERE ELECTED TO STAND FOR. TO DO THAT THERE NEEDS TO BE A HOUSE CLEANING AND THE LIKES OF JOHN MCCAIN, LINDSEY GRAHAM, MITCH MC CONNELL, PETER KING AND THE REST WHO SUPPORT THE DEMONCRATIC PLATFORM EITHER CHANGE PARTIES OR ARE TAKEN OUT BY THEIR ELECTORATE.

      and don’t forget a PHOTO ID TO VOTE and no “registration” at the poll..

  • CountryBoy

    Chicago THUG……

  • ChillyinAlaska

    Well conservatives need to really get behind the photo ID for elections or we will NEVER win another one when your opponents can vote numerous times under multiple identities with impunity. Obama didn’t win, election fraud won..

    Smug SOB

    POS is POTUS. STFU AH GFY

  • CSN

    Obama tells us to win an election…but he really knows how to organize “Voter Fraud”, which is why so many elections are lost. They know how to manipulate machines so that your vote for the conservative candidate will automatically default to the opposing candidate, or they bring in illegal immigrants to vote in buses, months before the election, telling everyone that, “all should have a chance to vote” so we’re going to allow “early voting” which will sink anyones chance of winning who is a conservative, because they’ve got the wagons circled and won’t allow us to win…….THIS HAS TO STOP OR WE’LL LOSE BIG TIME IN 2014. God Save America! Pray, Pray, Pray and support those who are trying to put a stop to the Voter Fraud….we’ll be Russia and China in 2014 if we don’t!

  • ldazzle

    I thought it strange, the ‘idiot-in-chief’ telling his (homies) in Kenya to support voter ID, not so much here. Our Country is a sham & shamefull.

  • Outcountry

    Is it possible this man is truly that stupid? All 535 Representatives and Senators are there because they won elections. That’s how “all his friends in Congress” got in. They campaigned and won an election. So they are there with exactly the same mandate he has to argue for or against policies and presidents. What an idiot!

  • Peggy

    He said “Go win an election” with a near sneer on his face, of course, knowing that our elections are now fixed. Our last election was so crooked it made the elections in Cuba look good by comparison.

  • Linda Parrish

    0bama what are you talking about!!? You are not singular in this co-equal government of ours. You are not king!!!
    All the members of the House, All the members of the Senate, Republicans and Democrats, were all elected by the people who voted in the past three elections!! You were not on any election ballot alone!!!
    We The People elected to give the House of Representatives control over YOUR excessive spending! They were ELECTED (just like you) to keep YOU in check!!!
    The Republicans WON control of one branch of the government, and like you smuggly spew constantly, election have consequences!!! Deal with it!
    Get a clue and quit your lying!!!!

    Obamacare will be the demise of the Democrat party. The more people that see what it entails the more that will turn against the Democrats for enforcing such a bad law. One that goes against free enterprise, liberty and freedom. Sure hope this makes the libertarians a contender.

    Adolf Hitler was also elected by the popular vote.

    “Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems…They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.” ~
