When Does "Forward" Begin?

Lady Willpower 2012/12/03 01:51:12
When does "forward" begin? Obama's campaign suggested that he wanted to country to go forward. It seems, since he was voted back into office for another 4 years, that the people who voted for him wanted the same result: a forward movement.

What does "forward" mean? It means many things. As far as I understand, this is the definition of "forward" Obama was campaigning toward:
4: moving, tending, or leading toward a position in front; also: moving toward an opponent's goal
5: advocating an advanced policy in the direction of what is considered progress
(from Marriam-Webster's dictionary)

I question again: When does Obama intend to start going forward?

It has been about three weeks since the election yet we are still to see any movement away from what happened in the past. We are still hearing the same boring talking points that were taking place before the election and during the election. It continues after the election.

Isn't it time for Obama to move forward beyond blaming the Republicans for his failure to enact any policy or to negotiate any policy that would put the American people and the nation first? If he were truly interested in avoiding the fiscal cliff, he would seek to put what is best for the country before creating petty squabbles and opposition between Members of Congress.

    "Forward" is just a slang the Obama campaign made up to represent progressivism. It has absolutely no substance. Since Obama doesn't have to face the voters again, expect him to ramp up his socialist agenda into hyper-drive. He's going to tax, spend, and borrow us into oblivion, and trample the natural rights of the People with ever-increasing severity.

    GWB once said "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice,shame on me." We saw what happened for the past four years, and reelected Obama anyway. Yes, I know it's possible (though not definite) Romney might have really won were it not for some Democratic vote counting shenanigans and ballot stuffing in 4-5 major swing states, but the truth is that both candidates got roughly 50% of the popular vote. Since we fell for it twice, we have only ourselves to blame.

    Forward will begin when Obutthead gets behind you so that he can stab you in the back, push you over the cliff, rob you and your family of all savings, and lowers all hope and expectations to a common level of disappointment.

    Increasing taxes on anyone just translates to more government wasted money spent. they simply cannot stop spending our money. we are heading backward in the sense that enough is never enough at least in the last four years I have noticed
  • Lady Wi... Nancy~P... 2012/12/08 02:57:25

    They can't keep spending what we don't have and can't keep borrowing to solve the problem. We're headed for the cliff, that's for sure.
  • DefendnProtect 2012/12/07 19:30:02
    Forward over the cliff...

    Establishment GOP is selling us out to the banksters and international socialists.

    Boehner is purging true fiscal conservatives from the GOP. Check it out.

    So true fiscal and liberty minded conservatives will fight it another way..

    i have an idea: unless you live in this country and know exactly what's going on here, don't leave a stupid comment.

    Here's what's going on: we're at a stalemate because democrats refuse to work with the GOP. The day after the election, John Beohner(R)--Speaker of the House--offered to work with Democrats to keep us from going over the fiscal cliff. On the same day, Harry Reid(D)--Senate Majority Leader--declared that he would NOT work with the GOP. Obama has stated that he will VETO any bill passed by the House and the Senate that does not follow his agenda.

    Once the democrats stop playing games, stop stalling and start doing what is best for the country instead of playing the blame game, we will get somewhere. Until then, we are stalled just as we have been stalled for the last 4 years.
  • Defendn... Lady Wi... 2012/12/08 10:50:33
    So why then is Boehner purging true fiscal conservatives from financial committees?
  • teigan 2012/12/05 19:34:27
    One would have to be able to lead to move forward. That movement won't come from Obama, it will come from his handlers behind the scenes and Americans aren't going to like where "forward" takes them. Obama just continues to do the only thing he has ever know how to do, talk and campaign. He's the "showman", not the one that calls the shots.
  • Lady Wi... teigan 2012/12/06 02:29:23

    I agree. Obama is nothing but a puppet. He does as he's told and, when it all blows up in his face, he will be the scapegoat.

    The knuckleheads that voted for him must have forgotten that when he says one thing he means another. He intends to take us backward.
