WASHINGTON – Arch-conservative Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) said Thursday that President Barack Obama should not be considered the leader of the United States.

“This whole idea that the President is the leader of our country is a mistake,” DeMint said during a speech to the Washington, DC chapter of the Federalist Society, according to Talking Points Memo.

Described by some as the most conservative member of the Senate, DeMint came to fame in 2009 when he said in a leaked private conversation that defeat on health care will be Obama’s “Waterloo.” He insisted Thursday that leadership should occur at the local level, not the national level.

“Leadership starts in the homes in the communities, in businesses, in churches,” he said. “I’ve lived in a community and I know where the leaders are and it’s not in Washington. And this pretense that he’s our nation’s leader… I’m not just talking about Obama, I’m talking about any President.”

“A candidate who goes out and makes all these promises about what he’s going to do in all areas of our society needs to be removed from consideration.”

After implying that the president has overreached in his desire to reform American society, DeMint curiously claimed Obama isn’t going to lead and therefore should be replaced.

“It’s pretty clear this President is not going to lead,” he said. “We’ve got to replace this President.”

DeMint also railed against the national debt and insisted the United States should stop borrowing from China.

On its website, the Federalist Society laments that institutions suffer from an “orthodox liberal ideology” that “advocates a centralized and uniform society.”

It describes itself as “a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order.  It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution.”

    …unlike the burning bag of c*cks that is DeMint…who would happily tongue clean the butt and balls of Reagan and Bush…but scoff at any president from the other party. We’re out of words that register the level hypocritical douchebagness in the GOP…we need to send out for some new ones…especially for DeMint and co. I’d like to pepper comments with something more original than the well worn classics.

    I’m assuming DeMint is talking about Canada, or maybe Mexico, or could it be Cuba? Cause last I heard, the prez of this country was the leader of this country. What ever happened to our country, love it or leave it? Maybe we should ride DeMint out on a rail, if any other country would take him.

    Senator De Mint is obviously influenced by another Republican named Eric Cantor who is on record when he met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and promised him that his party will act as a “check” on the Obama administration.

    The unusual meeting offers a strong hint that U.S. President Barack Obama will find Congress taking a more assertive role in foreign policy towards Israel. Cantor is set to become the majority leader in the GOP-controlled House of Representatives.

    According to his office aide,”Eric stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration and what has been, up until this point, one party rule in Washington,” according to a statement from his office. “He made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other.”

    Could it be tha Senaator De Mint is telling the country who really is “Der Leader”?

    Sounds pretty treasonous to me. Did he say someone should “take out” the President or use any other triggers to stir up his inbred, knuckle-dragging mouth breathers who constitute the majority of his constituents? Maybe he’d like to declare himself President of the New Confederate State of Sawth Cahlina., Such a distinguished population already, some people say they have to keep moving or they’ll take root.

    What a pathetic, grinning asshat. If he Second Amended himself, I’d throw a party and pay for the first three rounds with my unemployment check.

Barack Obama is the President at least for 4 years and he is the current leader of our Country, whether you like it or not.

    I believe that we will not know if he is a good leader until he is out of office just like it was with Clinton, sure he was a liar and a cheater but he got our economy at its highest. The only reason i believe that a lot of conservatives are not happy with Obama, is because he is not making them any richer but trying to enrich the lives of working men, not those living off daddy’s trust fund. Yeah I went there…

    Oh, you must be one of those people who thinks “leadership” is when some pompous, self-important jackanape such as our unlamented recent President Dubya struts and poses and issues cocky statements about how the bad guys should just “bring it on.” That’s not leadership, it’s braggadocio.

    Obama has actually done a very good job of leading this country, but he’s done it so quietly people haven’t noticed. Take a look at his agenda and just how much he got through the lame duck Congress. Look at his proposals for the budget. He’s not one to hog the spotlight and talk about “me, me, me”, and Americans have gotten so used to that type that they mistake it for leadership when it’s nothing more than self-promotion.

    Of course, DeMint is also in Washington, so based on his own words, he is also not a leader: “”I’ve lived in a community and I know where the leaders are and it’s not in Washington.”

  • Anonymous

    Obama is the first President of the United States that is said not to be a Leader. From George Washington to George W. Bush the Presidents have been called Leaders. DeMint is running for President as to lead the Nation but then word leader will come back to the Office of President. What DeMint was really saying is a minority can’t be a leader in the USA and even some who comment on this blog. Obama is qualified education and respect all over the World except in the US by Republican/Tea Party. Bush brought this country to two Wars based on complete lies and total corruption for 8 years as Bush is considered a Presidential Leader. For 8 years DeMint agreed and followed the orders of our President and put us in a Recession. The trillions borrowed from China was done at the hands of the Republican Controlled Congress and backed up by votes from Law Makers like DeMint. To hear DeMint tell it the two Wars and Recession started on Jan. 15, 2009 when Obama took office. The Tea Party dumped DeMint and has chosen Ron Paul as their leader as DeMint now thinks he can be President with only the few votes from loyal voters in South Carolina. DeMint has clearly joined his nutter friends Sarah, Michele, Randy and the other circus nutters entertaining the Media and the World.

He forgot to mention that Barack Obama not only lived in his community, he organized people in his community to empower themselves politically. As a community organizer Obama knew all the leaders in office and in the community.

    I would bet my life savings that my 50 years of door-to-door campaigning for liberals and progressives trumps your (months?) of empty blogging, and I happen to agree with nyupstater on this particular point.

    In my opinion, Obama – like Clinton – is an establishment pragmatist who has no political philosophy apart from his personal ambition. He panders to Wall Street and eschews progressives. He talks hope for the future, but delivers more of the Bush past. He has continued to constrict civil liberties, make war, subsidize corporations, untax the wealthy, and throw bones to the unemployed, the sick and the homeless.

    Obama is a follower in the footsteps of his ideological predecessors: Bush, Clinton, Bush and Reagan.

    the Federalist Society

    It’s no accident that the Conservatives would bring back the word “Federalist” from the exitnct “Federalist Party”. In case many of you don’t know the Federalist Party grabbed power at the dawn of our country. As soon as this country got a taste of Conservatism they rejected it quick and the Federalist Party went extinct.

    We aren’t as smart as the founding people. The reason the founding people were smarter was because many of them knew what it was like before the American Revolution and they knew enough when the Conservatives gained power that it would be meet the new boss same as the old boss. The founding people knew enough to make sure Conservatism would go extinct.

    Time passed. Conservatism gains its life when the people don’t know history. If the people were to be knowlegable about history the Conservatives would remain in the grave and stay there. Conservatism are the Torys, the ones that wants to see this nation fail. The ones that want to bring this nation back to the fuedal days.

    They would love for the people to say Lord Bush Jr of Stupid. Conservatives wants to bring back titles and privilieges for the aristocrats.

    Another in the long line of small penis conservative white men that can’t wrap their heads around black leadership. Conservative white men are shocked at Obama as president, they need to seem tough, bold, relevant so they lash out like this. It will get worse as their wives and daughters start to admire Obama. LOL and don’t act out cause Eric Holder is waiting to sift your entire family tree. Ya should have sent the slave back to Africa. lol Blacks will make conservatives pay…everyday for at least 150 years. Slave karma is real. You can avoid all of this by apologizing for slavery and paying blacks 1million dollars each.

    Yes… I want out of both wars, I want Gitmo closed, I want to end the Patriot Act, I want single payer, I want the top 2% to pay what they paid before the Bush give away. Obama could have pushed harder but he couldn’t have got ANY of that through the Blue Dogs in the House or the dysfunctional Senate… no matter how hard he tried. I want more from the President but I’m not ready to dump him for a Talibaptist Rushthuglicon. A third party sounds fine, but start it at the grass roots level and elect local officials first. Dumping on Obama without some realistic alternative is just counterproductive.

    Yeah, sure — if Obama was a leader, he’d be telling us he’s cutting OUR Social Security because the wealthy don’t want to pay the back taxes they owe us for borrowing from the SS Trust Fund in lieu of that tax revenue.

    According to the Speaker of the House, a real leader would be telling the people whose wages have been flat or who have suffered a decline in wages and benefits that they have to “share in the sacrifice.” That way, those whose income has doubled or more in the past decade are shielded from having to bear any sacrifice whatsover.

    One that stands out from the crowd of the usual toadies and sycophants!
    One that will talk with you about issues and consider your opinions because of Republican party thinking that mixing with commoners is unthinkable and that sound-bites should be enough.

    Republicans are like “the Borg” on cocaine. That is why there are the one-way of thinking party, to scared of getting kicked out of “the Borg” that provides them money and successful elections without them even stopping from “sniffing glue” all day.

    THE REPUBLICANS ARE THE REASON FOR THE MISTAKE THAT OBAMA IS PRESIDENT!
    He was the only candidate that intelligent voters could take seriously.
    ITS THE REPUBLICAN’S FAULT!

    The Republicans should consider learning something about COMPETITION if they ever are to win AGAIN!
    LET ME MODEL THIS FOR YOU….
    Now I am trying to win and I look at the other side and they are looking good.
    I look for their strengths and weaknesses and try to come up with something that will make me the better choice.

    As an aside for your amusement, A JOKE!
    “In history class, young Georgey Bush was perturbed when he didn’t give the correct answer to ‘What is 9+11′.
    He said to the teacher, ‘What are you, some kind of 9+11 Truther?’”

    Yeah, I keep seeing that response from folks like you, claiming that Obama out of sheer corporatism or some other crap just decided to extend the Bush tax cuts. It was obvious that he had absolutely no choice if he wanted to get anything at all done. People like you dispute it, but I haven’t seen one yet who could explain how he would have been able to keep from agreeing to pass those tax cuts AND still get done what he ended up getting done in the lame duck Congress. So, genius, maybe you can outline for me step by step what he could have done to overcome the fact that the Republicans had made it clear they would agree to nothing less than those cuts and were willing to stop everything else until they got them. Name names, explain processes. Let’s see you do it.

  • Anonymous

    You’re right. Obama is a corporate-military shill masquerading as a Democrat, a Democrat who has single-handedly brought the progressive-liberal movement to the brink of extinction through his ridiculous efforts to cooperate with the Republicans–as if it were possible to “cooperate” with a mad dog. Moreover, he is a liar and a deceiver who promised a reversal of the Bush doctrines but has instead maintained and even increased them. Every outrage committed by the Bush regime is now sitting squarely in his lap: the war, the economy, the draconian Homeland Security regulations, Guantanamo, the craven subservience to israel, the killing of innocents in Afghanistan, all of it.

    Never has an electorate been so thoroughly deceived as it was in 2008. We hoped for another Roosevelt, what we got was another Step-N-Fetchit. And spare me the “racial slur” crap; you know exactly what I mean when I describe Obama as another Step-N-Fetchit.

    One of the first things President Obama tried to do was close down Guantanamo prison, Harry Reed and some of the democrats sided with the Republicans and refused to fund it. Many whites (and some blacks) are culturally conditioned to believe, all things being equal, there’s no difference in a black man occupying the White House as opposed to the historically traditional white male. Whether you understand this or not, 10 to 20% of white males over the age of 40 in this country would have no problem waking up one morning and black people did not exist. Some of the final solution white folks are now representatives in congress. Almost 300 filibusters in the Senate in opposition to any economic recovery by a solid block of Republicans with the help of some blue dogs. Legislation from taking away tax incentives from companies moving jobs over seas to blocking renewal of the funds to cities to keep 250,000 first responders, firefighters, police, teachers on the job. The Lillie Ledbetter act protecting women from pay inequities. The health care act may not be the health care I wanted but it opened the door to a better day for the American people. There are issues I may question this president on but his leadership is not one of them. To many people in this country are culturally conditioned to believe they are better qualified to decide what is in the better interest of this country. I am not saying that every citizen does not have the right to critique or criticize this president without being accused of being a racist but anyone that believes that Obama is as bad as Bush or that our President has not accomplished some great things in spite of the political obstacles in his way are judging him through a racist belief system or just a fool

    I hope this makes people relize that we have two options to get a government that works for the people we either go to public funding for elections with no corporate money involved or we revolt. If not yes we are going to be voting for a outright fascist or a closeted fascist. One of the political parties is going to go the way of the Whig party, the Whig party was the party of compromise leading up to the civil war. When McCain lost and I watch the republicans I felt it was a pretty good chance it was them, but since the dems keep compromising they could end up being the party that dies. The Republicans formed after the Whigs fell apart but back then they were the progressive party. If the dems do fall apart a new party will take their place same if the republicans fall apart. But one is gonna be gone in the next ten years because when you have two different parties that say two different things but do the exact same things only one can survive.

    yes but surrounding himself with people who work for the banks and companies that caused the collapse in the first place and expecting different results is pretty fucking dumb, and that what Obama is doing.

  • Anonymous

    BINGO, you listed the things that piss me off about Obama also and yes I voted for him and not McCain, still doesn’t mean I can not get pissed because he wouldn’t take a stand. to all you Obamabots out there if Obama would of fought for a couple of the things that nyupstater listed the repugs would not of taken so many seats back. Many of us older folks have seen many elections and we are tired of them saying one thing while running for office and doing the complete opposite once in office. What republicans call Obama care was the republican plan for health care when Clinton was in office. If I wanted a republican plan I would of voted for McCain.

    ” He insisted Thursday that leadership should occur at the local level, not the national level.”It’s pretty clear this President is not going to lead,” he said. “We’ve got to replace this President.” ”

    He states he doesn’t want a president and and that the president should be replaced.
    What does he want the presidency replaced with?

    no Obama took the public option off the table before the debate started. Obama should of went in asking for universal health care and then had a debate with republicans then maybe we would of wound up with single payer instead he takes an old republican plan and sells it as his own think the republicans would jump on board and everyone would be happy, guess he missed the Clinton years. Obama is not a very good political strategist. Yes the republicans did block a lot of what he mentioned but Obama did not fight for shit he just kept giving in. I hate Bush but he fought for what he believed in, does Obama believe in anything? or is he just trying to tow the middle right road so he can get reelected? Big problem playing not to lose usually doesn’t work.

    really is getmo shut down yet? how about the troops oh yea he expanded the Afghanistan war and backed the extension of the patriot act. Let see big banks can still fail, and if you think they wont be bailed out again you really are a sucker. So how is he different then Bush other than he can make complete sentences. He cut funding to social security in the tax cut extension, as well as the estate tax, how is that different than Bush? He has surrounded himself with people who are pro big banks and corporate hand outs how is that different from Bush? He passed a health bill designed by the republicans in the 90′s how is that acting like a democrat? here is a link where you can compare the 1990 republican health care bill with the one Obama calls his own. http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/Graphics/2010/022310-Bill-comparison.aspx

    Well that is because they do not teach critical thinking in schools anymore, add in the fact that people treat their political party like it was a sport team to be rooted for instead of an organization that protects the rights of citizens something that neither party is very good at anymore. lip service for sure results people can believe in not so much.

  • Anonymous

    yes he had a choice he could of stood for something and lost yes lost at least I would of known he had the balls to stand up for something. Instead he caved and compromised with the republicans. the tax cut extensions are a good case Obama should have said I want to continue the tax cuts for the middle class but since the republicans will not allow the middle class a tax cut without cutting taxes on the richest 2% I am going to let all tax cuts expire. Then he could of fought for middle class tax cuts after the repugs got in office and made them look like the citizen haters they are. But nope he compromised.

  • Anonymous

    yes he had a fucking choice he could of let them all expire and then blamed the republicans for not allowing middle class tax cuts without a gift to the super rich. If he would of took that stand and let the tax cuts expire and then had house dems in the current congress introduce a bill to lower taxes on the middle class he would of had the repugs by the short hairs. It is not that Obama isn’t a leader but he definitely is not a good strategist but you can’t be if you are just going to compromise on everything. That is why we are where we are at today as a country republican president moves the country to the right dem comes in compromises we move farther right. The last truly democratic pres we had told the American people the truth and for that they voted in Reagan. since then we just keep moving to the right and that doesn’t lead to communism or socialism like the GOP talking points say it leads to outright fascism.

    no because it is still in private hands health care cost will keep going up because the companies that sell health care are publicly traded on the stock market, Wall St isn’t ok if you make a profit it has to be more profit every year not just a profit. You ever hear the term did not meet Wall ST. expectation? that is the code for made a profit but not more than they made the year before. Until we end health care for profit health cost are going to increase every year period.

    Obama knows this and it is why he has surrounded himself with corporate types like Delaney and Jeff Immelt, in the hopes that the corporations will see this as Obama being corporate friendly. As if gutting the Public Option did the same for Obama when he flushed it down the crapper in a quid pro quo with insurance companies. How did that work out for you, Barry??

    Fascism is here and now. It may not be the goose-stepping variety yet, but when ANYTHING polls with a 70% approval rating and still does not get passed, this is not the will of the People being employed.

    Maybe this dupe forgets that Obama is by definition the elected leader of our nation. I think DeMinted was at a KKK meeting the day it happened.
    One should note that when Alvin Greene ran against him, a candidate with no money and little polish, in the face of hostility of the news outlets and the democratic party, Alvin took 1/3 of the vote. What would happen if democrats produced a serious candidate and supported him? DeMint is no leader. He just wins by default because nobody opposes him.

    This isn’t about Obama being our leader. This is about mr “Waterloo” himself. He’s an opportunist and a bitter one at that.. Obama isn’t heavy-handed but he shouldn’t have to be with the crisis going on in America. The GOP (corporations front group) should NOT undermine the president for their political gain. If they were real americans they would’ve reached across the aisle to help the american people. If Obama were more aggressive they’d find away to spin that into hes anger (anger black man theory). Obama is the best leader we could have at this moment. He’s not going to start unnecessary wars or ignore countries America has issues with (becuz that works so well right?) He doesn’t confuse South Korea with North, he doesn’t insult EVERYONE under the sun every time he speaks. IF anyone from the GOP were in charge now we would have bigger problems.I am an American and I stand by President Obama. The GOP is an embarrassment to our country.

  • Jaimie11

    For the record, I did not call Nixon my leader. Not Ford, not Johnson, not Reagan, not Bush, not Clinton, not Bush, and now not Obushma.

    I think anyone of any race, religion or no religion, of any gender, of any ethnic group can be President of the United States. But none of them will ever be a leader until the debt based criminal banking system is overturned and banned from the land. Now you can make a racial issue of this but you’re wasting precious time and energy, because the problem is not that one guy you don’t like is demeaning a guy you do like. The problem is the money system is illegal and nothing can be done in this country by any president who takes his orders from banksters and other criminals. Got it?

    That could be better except that the Feds will still want to control it. Eh, it’ll be just a sham scam, a little rearranging of furniture. Blacks have been clamoring for vouchers so that their kids can get decent private school education. So if Obushma privatizes it, it will be only an appeasement and change only in appearance – it will still be low grade government controlled brainwashing and dumbification. And the payoff is it will destroy real private education. The oligarchs want a dumb pliant population to fill the slave slots in the new never-will-get-better economy.

    There will probably be no change for the kids. How much worse can it really get? Although some claim that it will widen the gap of inequality. But it will be detrimental for the teachers and the taxpayers, as always. They’ve already done it in New Orleans and the people are screaming, it’s that bad. It’s the same as privatizing the prison system. Same shit for the prisoners but not for the jailers.

    Sorry I’m busy in Madison.

    The Protest is phenomenal. On the order of the last protest that I went to in DC. I brought my drum and jointed the fray. All the news networks were there and we even stopped at the FOX truck and protested THEM. It was hilarious. As I walked away… I yelled “what a reputation”! with a russian accent ala Yakoff Schmirnoff would say “what a country” … everyone laughed. I’m going today and tomorrow. They said 40,000 were there on Friday and 60,000 on Saturday. I have to believe even more will be there today. The tea party was there but you couldn’t even find them.

    There were all kinds of wonderful witty sighs like “only little girls have tea parties” and “If you screw us… we multiply”. Some of the high lights were all kinds of signs around the rotunda that said Michigan supports you… Pennsylvania supports you and many others. Two firefighting unions walked through the center of the building as we were drumming/chanting… and on the tail end were two people in starwars carbord oufits that said “imperial walker” on them. It was hugely funny.

    Man o man… how you can be in office for a couple of weeks and create such a total shit storm is unreal!

  • Jaimie11

    I’m a nonpartisan political atheist who believes that the debt based money system is the source of your financial problems in Madison, Ohio, everywhere on the planet. I’m glad to see the people rising up, but I have to ponder on the fact that the root of the problem will not be solved. Our wealth will continue to be stolen from us by Wall Street and the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on global banking, and in twenty years whatever gains you make today will be lost again, as your money loses value as it slowly multiplies.

    Don’t forget the public employees retirement funds have been ordered by Obushma to invest in debt instruments that brainy people at Goldman Sachs create out of thin air. Manipulating markets in their favor and against yours in the rigged game, we are all losers by default. Not addressing the criminality in banking only perpetuates what you protest against today. Any victory you taste is mirage – no getting around that fact.

  • Rush Goofbaugh

    I’m totally with you as a nonpartisan political atheist, and you are right…. the people at the protest are mostly missing the point that Wall street created this problem, and now Wall street wants to fix the problem on the backs of the working people…. and the politicians are going along with it because Wall street got most of them elected.

    Nice to meet you as well Jaimie. It’s interesting that many on this site wouldn’t view us as “realist” and instead would say “dreamers”. I have removed myself from the political system because I don’t want to validate a system that from the start was never meant to represent “the people”. I am only there to remind them that the whole system is a failure. It’s not just the repuks that are broke… we are in Madison because we spoke Loud and Clear and got more war crimes. I personally can’t be a part of that anymore. People who can be a part of that need to take one giant step back where they might be able to see the big picture. We need to find new ways to fund a “legitimate” government. Abolishing the fed and collecting every cent of interest that gets paid to any bank to run the government would be a good start. Getting rid of the monetary system altogether could be a next step.

    DeMint is wrong. Obama is clearly, by definition the leader of the US. Is he everything I hoped he would be? No. In fact most of his accomplishments as POTUS seem like window dressing to me, with the exception of health care. I think he has capitulated far too much to the pugs and wall st. My guess is we would agree on on what a dissapointment he has been. But he is working in a corporately owned right wing media dominated environment. For those of you who think there is no difference between the parties, just look at what the pugs are all riled up about. Look at who is really taking your (reproductive, bargaining, etc.) rights and freedoms away.

    When Obama took over we were in two wars and the economy was in ruins. One war is winding down, the other appears winnable for the first time since the Republicans decided it would be more fun to invade Irag than to finish with Afghanistan. The economy is on track and we have a Health Care Bill for once that actually pays for itself. If he were white, Republican and name something like Bill Smith, the Republicans would be trying to add the Great to his name. Neither Bush nor Holy Reagan did as much in their first two years. Whoops Sorry, I keep forgetting that Bush had 09/11 to his credit during his first two years.

  • Johnny Warbucks

    Of course, it’s sour grapes. He is doing a better job than Bush did of handing over whatever little of the country is left to the corporations. He’s doing as good a job – actually better – than Bush in droning the live out civilians in the Middle East. He’s doing as good a job as Bush kidnapping and torturing people all over the world. He’s doing an even better job than Bush because he’s gone a step further and decided that Americans can also be assassinated outside the US. He’s doing a better job than Bush of destroying whatever little is left of the Constitution.

    So, yeah, it’s sour grapes. The kind of sour grapes that can see the truth and worries that the man entrusted by the people to lead them is, instead, selling them down the river and destroying the country. Yeap. Sour grapes. And you, too should have the same sour grapes because it is your country.
