Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) Says on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ …Obama’s Personality Makes It More Difficult For Senators To Work With Him


Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated this Sunday morning on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ that Barack Obama’s personality makes it more difficult for Senators to work with him. Folks, this is coming from a Democrat Senator can you imagine how the GOP ones feel? Hmm, hasn’t it been the MSM and Democrats saying that the GOP has been inflexible and its those conservatives’ fault? You have a Democrat Senator saying that it is Obama’s personality, one might say driven by a one-way ideology, that is to blame for Senators to work with him.


The President’s failure to build friendships with lawmakers has damaged his chances of finding bipartisan support for legislation, a senator from his own party said Sunday.

“It’s just hard to say no to a friend,” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“When you build that relationship and that friendship, you’re looking for ways to try to work things out and find a compromise and, you know, that friendship means an awful lot. When you don’t build those personal relationships, it’s pretty easy for a person to say, well, let me talk about it, you know, and not really make, you know, that extra effort.”
“You know, we all have different styles,” Manchin said. It’s “just not in the president’s nature to pal around,” the conservative Democrat said, adding that Obama doesn’t have a gregarious personality like former President Bill Clinton.

With the partisan gridlock and many senators up for re-election, Manchin, who has called for congressional action on tighter gun laws, said it’s going to be challenging to get such legislation passed next year, though he remains hopeful.

      If he is so damn hard to work for why are 90% of the represenatives going along whith him? Why are most in Washington breaking their sworn oath of office? Why is he not removed from office for treason? Why are we loosing our freedoms? Its always talk and no action. Self serving worthless individuals saying whatever it takes to get relected. They need to be thrown out of office in shame. Is any one working for us besides just a few real Americans.What the hell is going on here. Is there anyone that can bring charges againt them for just plain not voteing to uphold our Constitution and work strickly for Americans?

      Hey Joe! Did it ever occur to you that this guy in the White House doesn’t care to deal with Congress. He instead, wants to be the dictator. You guys should just roll over and let him have his way is his attitude.

      Forget the federal guns laws. If you even try, there will be a backlash from the people like you and your kind have never seen.

      The second amendment to the Constitution is the control. Any gun law passed at the federal level is automatically unconstitutional.
