CPUSA and MSNBC are very sad.

That’s good, but I hope Boehner doesn’t gloat. Say thanks and move on.

I gave Boehner a lot of grief here calling him the “weeper of the house” and all of that, but He now has all my respect!

Michelle needs a new dress.

0bama will point the finger at Boehner for being petty in an ad with the House lights off.

We should counter with Pelosi confiscating Blackberries and turning the House lights and cameras off. And locking the doors during the 0bama Deathcare ‘negotiations.’

Obama gets to look magnanimous and cooperative in a bipartisan way. MSM will say “Look how Obama always bends over backward to accommodate the Republicans.”

Dang...I was hoping Rush Limbaugh would buy 1 hour of airtime somewhere during the Obama speech to do a show. He woulda slam-dunked everything in that timeslot. Oh well, we know he’ll be watching NFL...and assigning the Obama speech to Cookie to watch!

This was all political theater, a side show planned by Obama’s handlers to make the GOP look petulant. He will somehow slam them with being unable to look beyond their election campaigns at the bigger picture where he acts like he took the high ground. Sadly this charade will work on some people.

Heads exploding at DU:

"I am disappointed to my core. Hate has nothing to do with it. This is a huge, massively huge, embarrassment, again, and again we look like weak ineffectual bumblers. Three years in and this administration still hasn't got a clue."

"...bumbling incompetent idiots. This administration is setting new standards for absolute cluelessness."

"It was a massively stupid blunder that makes us look weak and incompetent."

WHOOOAA!

That’s Thursday night football, the first game of the NFL season - Green Bay vs New Orleans, in Green Bay, I’m sure. I AM OCCUPIED.

Now normally I would’ve set aside time on my calendar to listen to Mrs obuma bake a rat cake, but now I’m busy that night - for sure.

Now if Mrs. Sotero wants to move the affair to Haloween so we can watch the Muslim chop off pumpkin heads, I can fit that on my schedule - maybe.

Sort of fitting that NBC is the network broadcasting the NFL opening day game. NBC will get to decide if they want to drop the game (which they paid BIG bucks for the right to broadcast) to show Great Leader, or continue to show the football. Gotta love that this is NBC.
