Posted on 08/08/2011 8:31:48 AM PDT by DCBryan1
CNBC just broke in and told the audience that the President has requested airtime and will speak to the nation at 1300hrs EST (12 noon central, 10 AM PST) on the US national debt downgrade.
Well I am pretty close to coming to that POV myself... so we are NOT very far apart at this time.
I started a thread on this earlier today....he has so much narcissism, I wondered when he was going to blabber....
Hasn’t he done enough damage?
I’m not sure he can get away with specifically attacking the tea party.... Too many polls I’m seeing say we specifically blame Hussein and the Dims and I think His Petulance might not want to speak the name for FEAR it will bolster his enemies.
He’s a Peas of Sh!t and a coward, but I don’t think he wants to incite MORE anti-Husseinship.
I’m going to climb out on a limb and say he will go for his favorite “There are those...” instead of mentioning “tea party.”
When Obama mentioned something about American's "problems" and Rush cut in with just the right timing and indignant voice "YOU'RE the problem" it made me burst out with ROFL big time.
Go Rush, give us the color during the speech....can't wait.
It eventually could, but not today when investors are looking for safe havens.
Ahhh I called it
He would speak within 72 hours of yesterday
TheWon will speak ON THE ECONOMY and maybe the troops that died from the State Dining Room
Unless he’s tendering his resignation there is nothing he could possibly say that would interest me. It will be lies whatever it is.
They are part of his "Propaganda Department".
Koffler is a WH reporter.
(I am veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler. White House Dossier is the only 24/7, independent, and totally unauthorized White House blog.)
No one will ask about Barry’s upcoming vacation.
He/they will go, there will be a blackout of pictures and any information about how many friends are going with them.
The rest of us will worry about making payrolls or keeping our jobs.
What would America do if the idiot introed the global currency and NWO on TV today?
“I hope he will take a moment to acknowledge the Navy SEALs sacrifice without any political spin.”
The only reason he would say anything about it is FOR polical spin. Considering how I’ve been hearing about casualties lately from stationed soldiers INSTEAD of the media doesn’t make me buy anything about the story released about this latest loss. For all we know, Hussein cleaned up the witnesses to his last “operation.”
He is far more evil than a Vampire.
Yep, no one is listening to his flaky excuses. Times up we’re done with him...now invoke the 25th...he hasn’t a clue how to run this country...
I am so mad.
If I knew how to post, I would post an article that just got released in the Seattle Times. This administration is planning to send Somalia $100 million in famine relief- “for the children”.
I am so sick of this government. We have no money, yet can find some to give to a country that lives in the stone ages, and also hates the US.
Internet, Fox, Talk Radio
Then he can re-open the Government approved alphabets: abc/nbc/cbs and their cable clones.
You beat me to it, exactly what I was going to post.
See post 161 the usurper will be speaking from the state dining room.
And he won’t address gas prices or the gutting of the middle/upper class and the massive pain and job losses.Nor the soon to be horrendous grocery prices we face because of the drought. You’re correct we are screwed. The MSM can all go to hell.
Many conservative guests have tried to worm it out of him....but he always says in his best weasel voice..."Oh, I'm not going to go THAT far...."
It took three years for someone to get him to admit Obama is a socialist, but he said it only one time, mind you....and I'm sure he had his fingers crossed behind his back.
Maybe only when the Bloviator sees his ENTIRE stock portfolio evaporate will he speculate that maybe, well, alledgedly, supposedly, perhaps Obama has an agenda to implode this nation beyond repair.
Well, I suppose THAT'LL be the day!
My only interest in O'Reilly is that his show reaches so many people....and so many ignorant people as well....just like he.
I have no idea what he’s going to say but I have a funny feeling he’s going to tank his presidency for good. I’m feeling a malaise moment coming on.
He’ll just repeat this mornings MoveOn talking points:
:From Robert Reich: Repeat after me: We don’t have a debt crisis. We have a jobs, wages, and growth crisis. Spread the word. And phone S&P.”
To boot the SOB will be late to the teleprompter and I will have to vomit thinking of watching him swaggert his way to the podium so maybe the state dining room won’t have him swaggering down a long hall.
Barry Swaggart, Mmmmmm, Mmmmmmm, Mmmmmmmm.
The state dining room is going to be used tonight for a Ramadan dinner.
He may imply "Tea Party downgrade" but he won't say it. He's got all his surrogates to say it; he doesn't need to.
This word will be mentioned more than any other today in the Campaigner-in-Chief's speech today.
A corollary to the principle of “never letting a crisis go to waste” is doing what you can to prolong and worsen any crisis that arises.
I predict the bottom will really drop out after he speaks. The Libs will still blame the Tea party of course.
If the market does really plunge, Obama will seize more assets and assume greater power.
IF we had anyone responsible in DC....since this guy knows nothing and is way way over his head...the 25th should be invoked...at least Biden is an American...and loves his country...
Some might be appalled at that graphic....
But that is exactly what they did to us, and not a liberal member of the media or of this administration cares one whit.
What happened to Obama’s separation of government and religion? No flyovers of GOD AND COUNTRY fairs, Perry can’t pray but this SOB can drag out his prayer rug and we pay for it?
He'll announce that the Treasury printing presses will churn out tons more paper money plus he's ordering another new and massive stimulus plan.
Folks, utopia is coming and folks will be able to buy little red and blue wooden houses to put on Park Place and live with the swells after this great new infusion of Monopoly Money.
(Send him to jail, no passing "GO", just directly to JAIL).
I fart in his direction... kenyan fag usurper.
The rise of Hitler and his international clones, past and present, bear a marked and frightening similarity to whats happening here.
I am convinced that there were and still are powerful forces and ideas at work behind the scenes. Call them the conspiracy, the oligarchs, the super-wealthy elites, human nature, whatever that pass the baton from generation to generation. Motivated by impulses most of us “simple folk” cannot fully understand, while they occasionally fail, they often successfully engineer circumstances that can be predicted to preserve and/or extend their wealth and power (mainly power, as from power flow the riches).
I said that to say this: At Versailles after WWI, some of the cooler heads there warned that the highly punitive provisions of that treaty would cause the German people to become susceptible to the rise of a tyrant promising to restore their national pride and raise their devastated nation to power once again. They got him in the early 30s and the rest is history. That and Obozos hatred for Israel makes it doubly difficult to understand why nearly 80% of American Jews voted for this clown. Guess they love their idiotic progressivism more than their fellow Jews.
If you don’t yet see a parallel between driving Germany to her knees at Versailles and the intentionally destructive things being done to America — largely sans any meaningful protests or outcry — by the would-be despot in the White House, go back to that NYT crossword or the sports page and order another Starbucks ‘cause it’s gonna be alright — NOT!!!
My fear is that this time it won’t take the 14 years it took Hitler — Versailles ‘(1919) to his appointment as Chancellor (1933) — as the guy selected for the position is ALREADY IN PLACE!
Be afraid. Be VERY AFRAID ESPECIALLY IF WE DON’T OUST HIM AND HIS GANG OF ENABLERS IN 2012.
Gold up $62.50 in one day, somewhere I read Soros has 10 tons he wanted to sell.
Everytime he speaks he fuels whatever fires are burning. Any thing Washington says at this point will be to stop any panic from esculating to protect the banks from any runs.....but Obama never seems to say anything which accomplishes that. He doesn't get it that he really isn't King.
The Ramadan celebration is Wed.
That’s my grocery bill for four months!
There should be a mugshot of the jugear behind the mask photoshopped with a Negative sign in front of however much credit score in that picture.
....MSMBC.....”Obama is also expected to speak about Saturday’s shoot-down of a helicopter in Afghanistan in which 30 U.S. troops were killed the deadliest incident for U.S. forces in the decade-long war.”
Thanks for link.
He celebrated his downgraded debt deal at MO’s favorite hamburger joint on our dime
