I bet he got chills when his master lied about her opening her eyes for the first time when Obama visited her Wednesday.

Actually, she has been opening her eyes since Sunday.

“Giffords is in a drug-induced coma in intensive care. Doctors frequently awaken her to check her responsiveness, and she could open her eyes and respond to simple commands Sunday - an encouraging sign, said Rhee said (sic).”

I think the pee running down his leg after hearing Palin’s speech is what gave him the chills!

If people in these positions are really so gullible and emotionally stirred by such an obviously calculating player (at a funeral wake no less), no wonder humans follow charismatic despots to their own and society’s destruction :-(

Has anyone ever heard a speech by this guy that someone else hasn’t written? Has he ever spoken from the heart? Note that he only spoke at the University and not the funeral for the deceased. I guess they could get more people at the University.

Oh brother! Now I'll be stuck with that in my head all day!

I got chills also, from watching the Obama speech.

The economy is so bad and I’m so worried about keeping my job because of all the new regulations that Obama and Company have placed on my place of employment, I turned off my heat to save money.

It was 56 degrees in my apartment last night.

Thanks for the chills Mr President!!!

Me too. It was just rambling platitudes. Nothing the least bit inspiring. I was listening to the response of the audience to what he was saying and could not figure it out.

Nice find.

I had serious doubts about the Obama “revelation” last night, and your post confirms my suspicions.

Just before the Obama speech, I decided to do a little comparison for my own amusement, and listened to Reagan’s speech on the Challenger disaster first. Just as he did all those years ago, Reagan captured me completely with his vision, sincerity and eloquence, an eloquence that surpassed even his own usual standard of inspiration.

And then I listened to Barry in Tucson. The president can string words along effortlessly and with a modicum of eloquence. He’s literate. But I always sense detachment in him, and I always sense that he’s trying too hard to appear sincere, but underneath it all he really doesn’t give a s***.

And that’s what I heard last night — a performance in which he attempted to sound sincere. President Obama, an academic, acts a part when speaks, trying to say what he thinks he supposed to say. President Reagan, an actor, spoke always from the heart about what he truly believed.

Chuck Todd has always been a bot; that much has been painfully obvious since he became a “reporter” on same.

I saw a bit of “Nightline” last night and finally heard enough “worship” that I switched it to another channel.

Some of the hype has never ended.

Well, Chuck, it isn’t every day that you get to hear an actual deity speak, now is it?

BTW, do any of you sycophants in the news media realize just how embarrassingly stupid you guys sound when you suck up like this?

The media are trying to make this the ‘Stella got her groove back’ moment for little O.

I was a little creeped out by the cheering and ‘whoop it up’ atmosphere, and the applause lines. I think most Americans had a similar reaction.

I also found the ‘photo op’ nature of the event strange. Sandra Day O’connor shows up, because she used to be a senator in AZ? Eric Holder - why?. Napolitano makes a speech - why? Honestly, I felt it was strange for Gifford’s doctors to be there...especially when they were cheered.

And the ‘theme’ - ‘Together We Thrive’, complete with t-shirts...really? Its been reported that people spent the night in line, to make sure they got in - just like a rock concert!

It was all very odd.

I found both my heat off and a window open!

But really, the only chills I get is barry making an even BIGGER rhetoric and media show should yet another mass shooting occur.

Roman columns, gold helmets, chariot races...

It’s incredible that grown men make such comments over hype and photo-ops.

They sound like pop star groupies’ comments you’d expect to find in a showbiz magazine.

Have these idiots still not figured out that BO is simply reading other peoples words- which he does quite well. If anyone really thinks that BO actually means any of this stuff, they are still just plain stupid. We have evidence for 2 years that he reads well, but doesn’t mean a word of anything that comes out of his lying mouth. These people, including some on FOX, need to get a grip.
