Last good economy was under Clinton (applause)...
You have to make choices to get food or send kids to college...
Economic problems here before I got here.

Can’t decide NOT to pay the bills from previous congresses...
Some folks don’t want to raise debt ceiling
If we don’t, we can’t pay our bills (LIE)
Won’t default on our debt.

He said earlier; glad to get out of Washington, feeling cooped up because he’s spending so much time working on the debt. It’s the first thing he thinks of in the AM and the last thing he thinks of at night...(LIE)

Supposedly holding a 'Town Hall' Meeting and will take questions which have been typed up and distributed by Obama's staff to college idiots who will then ask them.

This $hit is getting old.

Was listening to Fox on the Sirius radio as I turned into the office — heard part of intro remarks — going to take longer to recover, been going on before I got here, blah, blah, blah. Actually was happy to shut of the radio and get to my desk.

>"It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a fule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?
"The want of confidence in the public councils damps every useful undertaking, the success and profit of which may depend on a continuance of existing arrangements. What prudent merchant will hazard his fortunes in any new branch of commerce when he knows not but that his plans may be rendered unlawful before they can be executed? What farmer or manufacturer will lay himself out for the encouragement given to any particular cultivation or establishment, when he can have no assurance that his preparatory labors and advances will not render him a victim to an inconstant government?"
- James Madison, Federalist #62

As a matter of fact, who can read Madison's insightful analysis without acknowledging that he describes in Federalist #62 the state of affairs we find ourselves in as of July 2011, as a result of departure from the Founders' principles of liberty?

The current President either does not understand what Madison and America's Founders understood, or he deliberately has chosen for America lack of opportunity over opportunity, mediocrity over greatness, want over plenty, and indebtedness and slavery for future generations over liberty and freedom!

Can’t close debt on cuts alone, means old folks will have to die, pay more for health, students will have to pay more, higher gas prices...

Got to have more ‘revenue’...TAXES, or else people will be HURT!! It’s not fair.

The ‘wealthiest’ Americans and biggest corporations should do their part as well...(GE??? your buddy Immelt?)

Oil co’s and private jet owners give up your tax breaks...

First Question -- Mr. President, why are you so awesome?
Second Question -- Mr. President, why are the stupid Republicans so mean to you?
Third question -- Mr. President, shouldn't George Bush be in jail or something?

It's hard work to piss away $6,000,000,000,000 in three years, and that's just the debt increase, not the actual spending base budget!

Ooops!!! Gremlins crept in. If you wish to share this quotation from Madison, please use this corrected version:

"It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?

What prudent merchant will hazard his fortunes in any new branch of commerce when he knows not but that his plans may be rendered unlawful before they can be executed? What farmer or manufacturer will lay himself out for the encouragement given to any particular cultivation or establishment, when he can have no assurance that his preparatory labors and advances will not render him a victim to an inconstant government?"

I am so sick of his SHUCK n JIVE, I’m a rock star message delivery presentations.

It is simply astonishing that anyone would be clapping for this so-called president anymore.

The ONLY reason he has ANY support is because it is bought and paid for.

What the heck is that first question? Who planted that girl...some atheist complaining she was denied employment because of her religious non-beliefs? When does any employer ask about a person's religious status when you are applying for a job?

I am sure it was a set up so Obama could make some ridiculous statement because then Obama commented about faith based facilities who are employers should hire people from differing faiths...what the heck? I am Catholic. There are many, many non Catholics working at schools, in church offices, etc. A local Methodist church employes a Lutheran friend. Obama said the Jewish faith based facilities should hire non Jewish employees. Well, they always have. Anyone ever visit a JCC and work out or swim? Where in the world does that imbecile we have in the WH get his information?

Of course, the attendees were probably all screened; someone made sure they were all good little true believers. Can’t have any malcontents in the crowd, or anyone asking questions that the Gangsta-in-Chief can’t answer.
