There is a difference between having "great ideas" and being able to develop a plan, or implement solutions to problems. Obama's ideas are all generalities, not specifics. He has no clue how or what to do to give the economy a boost, or start jobs, or get people off of welfare, or deal with our enemies and gain their respect. He speaks in terms that might delight the mind of a fifth grader...but beyond that level he cannot present solutions that this country needs.

Obama wants to put Band-Aids on our country's social and economic wounds and international relations illnesses when skilled drastic fiscal surgery and strong medicine in the diplomatic arena is needed. . He has no skills beyond handing out warm fuzzies. He sees his role as one of a grandfather; he never grasped the difficult role of what it takes to be a leader. And he might as well give everyone a "Linus" blanket and tell us all to go lay down and take a nap and it will all be better tomorrow.

Obama argued some Republicans privately agree with a lot of his ideas

Once in a while even Obama tells the truth.

He reminds me of Poprishchin in Gogol's Diary of a Madman when he orders the other inmates to go get the moon for him.

“The grandees with the shorn heads, whom I met in great numbers in the hall, were very intelligent people, and when I exclaimed,

“Gentlemen! let us save the moon, for the earth is going to sit on it,” they all set to work to fulfill my imperial wish, and many of them clambered up the wall in order to take the moon down.”

The grandees in the press will do anything for Obama.

President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as “great” and tell him they are “all good ideas.”

Calling sloganized rhetoric, which demonstrates only a half-baked listing of notions that do not actually relate to demonstrable reality, "good ideas," probably defines the intellectual capacity of the one calling the description.

The demagogue's recent rhetoric shows an incoherent perception of just what the "middle-class" consists, and even more important, how people get into the middle-class, stay in the middle-class, or relate to Government in the American experience.

The demagogue is all rhetoric, but no substance. If we had a better press corps, they would be shredding, not praising this truly unamerican disaster.

And see America Grounded On Experience & Reason, to better understand the point.

They’re just patronizing the retarded kid because he gives them favors.

Kim Jong-Il also made a near perfect golf game with many hole sin one because his sycophants wanted to patronize him, too.

You are correct. There are few specifics because his "ideas," are not grounded on actual reality. While this is a common trait of the Leftwing pseudo-idealist, Obama as a demagogue, always appealing to the susceptible potential mob participant with limited actual intelligence, exhibits the trait to an extraordinary degree.

The fact is that you cannot justify his "ideas" in reason, but this is not an obstacle to mob in-citation.

In the age before the politics of the thirty second sound bite, appealing to all that is base in the the human character, Obama would have been hooted off the stand in his public appearances. He is the ultimate example of how far we have fallen.

Reporters are as much an authority on economics as was Heinrich Himmler on genetics. See how that turned out.

reporters have similar IQs...none of which require more than two digits.

Nor do they exceed room temperature...

That’s because they are as ignorant as you are, and wouldn’t know an economic policy from “ how to return “ a product instructions.

I thought this was satire at first: ‘All my yes-men tell me I’m right, so how could I be wrong? Are you a racist?’.

God help us.

The Communist, from a long line of communists, born, allegedly, to communists, mentored by communists from childhood, taught by communists in college, again, allegedly, surrounded by communists, has great economic ideas.

I mean, look how well those ideas worked for the Soviet Union, right?
