The executive order stuff was good, but Obama didn't go at the GOP in the way he should have.
Was that really only the sixth Obama State of the Union address? Because somehow after watching this one, I felt Id seen at least eight or nine and made the same complaint every time.
It was...fine. There were moments, a few moments, where it was better than fine. The Obamacare section came across to me as the most spirited, the one part where he dropped the guarded formality that characterizes his approach to SOTU addresses and talked a little bit, just a little bit, of street talk: Lets not have another forty-something votes to repeal a law thats already helping millions of Americans like Amanda. The first forty were plenty. We got it.
That was sort of a throw-down. At least it had to make Republicans feel pissed off. And thats always what I want Obama to do at these speeches. Heres the most obstructed president in the modern history of the country. (Yes, theres no serious disputing this.) His approval numbers are down, dragged down by the opposition party, which does everything it can to make sure there will be no economic recovery while hes president. Hes got three years left, three years during which he stands only one remote shot of getting anything positive donehave the Democrats win back the House this November. If that doesnt happen, with the party simultaneously holding the Senate, then pffft....

Excuse me, but regarding the metaphor.....have any of these idiots seen what a Pansy-Boy Obama looks like throwing a baseball?
Oh really? 17 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities? 30 million Americans out of work? 56 million American tots in abortion dumpsters? Hmmm. Whatever he's chooming - I want a toke
The author is one of those useful idiots that gets executed first.
Seriously, have all these Democrats forgotten that Bill Clinton figured out how to govern with a Republican Congress for six years of his term? He did it by crafting real compromises. It can't be done by a snarky, insulting jerk throwing down ultimatums.
Hardball? O’Bummer rammed through socialized medicine and homosexual marriage. Two of most devastating body blows to the Republic in many years.
How much more hardball can you get?
“How much more hardball can you get?”
The left will not be satisfied until all Conservatives are disarmed and loaded into freight cars for a “Final Solution”.
Really...I never know the GOP passed Obamacare / S...because that's what is dragging his numbers down...
which does everything it can to make sure there will be no economic recovery
Wow.. this guy is delusional
Now, this is the kind of article I find hysterically funny. Tomasky is a hardcore leftist who would rather the country be more like the old Soviet Union than a totally free-market one. So he’s upset that Republicans are “obstructing” Obama in his attempt to get the country moving economically speaking. These dopes don’t want an economic recovery. They want to see capitalism destroyed. And they’re doing a great job. So Tomasky and his ilk should be happy.
With the help of RINOs, of course.
Respectfully, to name just a few off the top of my head:
- what he has done and is doing to our military;
- his political appointments together with longer term judicial appointments, the vast majority of which are fellow travelers;
- his intentional bankruptcy of our free market economy;
- his misuse of the EPA;
- anti-American "transformation" things we must assume he has done that we do not yet know about (see generally, the praise and adoration of the CPUSA in this regard).
Apart from drones and the NSA, just about everything about O’Bummer is hardball and leftist. We should not be surprised. He was one of the most liberal Senators in Congress (top 10 percent) and yet the blithering idiots still voted for him.
Only death squads, FEMA camps, and torture chambers will satiate the authoritarian Leftist.
A lot of these Leftists don’t realize it yet, but if they get their wish, they will end up like Robespierre and Trotsky.
If dumBO is so good, how is it he suffers low approval? Fox News and Rush do not have the influence to counter the bully pulpit and the left wing propaganda machines of the slime stream media. zerO suffers low approval because his policies are not approved of. 2+2 is 4, not 5, no matter how often Bolshies say it.
I’m still waiting for the pony he promised me in his first speech.
Obama and the democrats openly mocked and laughed at the rest of America in the lie-fest of SoU. You are either with them or believe in the constitution and the declaration , Period!
And Clinton was even America's first black president!
