"The only way to avert this crisis..is for Congress to immediately adopt a balanced approach and enact massive new revenues". "I am calling on the American people to call Congress and tell them to return to Washington, and pass legislation that gives me the rest of the money". "Ehh...I have a Campaign to cheat...ehhhh...run."

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 Rush did a running commentary during O'Depression's last speech it was the funniest thing.

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.

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.

“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.”

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.

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.

When is O'Reilly finally going to admit that Obama is DELIBERATELY trying to sabotage this country and bring it to its heels?

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.

HAHAHA. I knew he couldn't resist. I expect more "balanced approach," more dings at congress, maybe a ding at S&P, more 'headwinds' and 'not my fault' ahead.

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.

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.

The rise of Hitler and his international clones, past and present, bear a marked and frightening similarity to what’s 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 Obozo’s 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.

Ten bucks market drops further after Obama's speech....

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.
