Continuing with yet another 'talking smooth and saying nothing' performance, our Dear Leader takes to the tube tonight to give rehearsed answers to pre-determined 'questions' in a so-called press conference wherein he will attempt to justify SPENDING trillions of dollars in order to SAVE money. The schtick is getting old as I said it would. Those preferring not to have their intelligence insulted, I would suggest walking the dog or reading PJ O'Rourke's "Driving Like Crazy."

With any luck, BarryO won't be able to nationalize 17% of the American economy anymore than he can create peace on earth by handing out iPods filled with his speeches to dictators and despots. Eventually even BarryO is going to have to realize his grandiose delusions are just that - and then things could get really ugly.

I'm gonna ask all this again...

What I don't get is this...if we are indeed heading off a destructive precipice, then how is smugly standing by and watching it happen any kind of respectable responsive action? Just for the satisfaction of saying "I told you so?" For instance, if Sotomayor represents such a radical left turn on the SCOTUS, then why not filibuster her? If the economic policies or the helthcare policies or any of the policies are so bad, why not fight them to the nth degree? Why not offer alternatives? John Boehner said almost four months ago that the GOP would present a comprehensive alternative financial reform plan. None came forth. The GOP also promised a comprehensive alternative helathcare reform plan. None have come forth.

This attitude...

"It's all gonna burn down, you liberal traitors, you're gonna destroy this country and we are gonna watch it happen!"

I don't get it. At all. Particularly coming from the people that claim that they love our country more than anyone else.
And once again - he's gone in a flash (more typical behaviour ... retreat! retreat!)


Where do you people garner this profound arrogance that I, or anybody, should be at your continuous beck and call in order to answer your silly questions? I come here for fun and relaxation. I leave when reality beckons or simply when I feel like it. This place isn't my life as it appears to be yours. You all take yourselves MUCH too seriously.

Really....well I guess 911 had nothing to do with it

He called the cops?


Type-o...he really called 411 because he heard it was called "information" and thought they could tell him what this "being president" gig was all about.

It's how we roll here at the WP. It was like that before I got here. It's like that now. I didn't start it but I'm more than happy to help level the playing field.

And by the way, "I told you so."

Nobody backed me into anything, Stalker Boy. I've been saying "I told you so" for months. THAT is the subject at hand. The fact that you and your little friends can't point to a single success on the part of your messiah is merely a sidebar.

And your point is what? I've been saying ''I told you so'' for months now. I don't need to wait for BarryO to screw up. As I said, I can't keep up with the "I told you sos" as it is. And what's truly amusing, in your collective huffs to call me out on saying "I told you so," not a single one of you Obamabots can deny that I am in fact correct about the Immaculate One. I notice you don't even attempt to defend him anymore.

Gotta love that "hope" and "change."

Oh brother. I bet this one can't wait to get back on the bus for the Fall Dead tour.

I listened to the entire news conference. I heard it, as well. The President is brilliant. He answered all questions. It was a wonderful experience. One that I have not had in many,many, many years. Jimmy Carter used to tell the truth. Lots of people do not like Jimmy Carter. I do. President Obama told us somany truths last night. We only have to listen and hear. People can tell when the truth is being told to them, if they listen, if they hear. I like what I heard. I heard truths.

Say what you want.

The man has control of the language and he does say something, when he speaks. I like that in a person, especially a President.

Fine I won't. But it's still OKAY for you to tell me what I should or shouldn't want as you did in the post that prompted my response, right?

RIGHT?

First off he's not a leftist radical. Other than Dennis Kucinich there are no leftist radicals on the American political scene. There are 3 categories of politicians. 1.) Moderate Republicrats like Obama, 2.) Right Wing Republicans like Boehner and Graham and Extreme Right Wing Nut Job republicans like Sarah Palin.
