Posted on 11/07/2008 11:36:38 AM PST by Lucius Cornelius Sulla
No one has posted this. We need to see what he is going to do to us.
I’m listening and I haven’t heard him say a thing except complain about the economy. Maybe he’ll do that later.
“The Office - President Elect”?! Are you kidding me? Is that Photoshopped?
So OST (Obama Standard Time) is 25 minutes past.
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Does BRFG = Barfing or Briefing ?
Every day I fail. :/
Me too :(
Talking about helping the auto industry adjust...fuel efficient cars here in the USA.
So far he’s saying all is bad, it needs to be fixed, I’m waiting for any specific.
BO is tall maybe he should have been a ballerina like Rahmbette.
He is reading notes, he really is awful. Someone give that man his teleprompter.
Looking everywhere but at the camera?
Then what is he? A guinea pirate?
Does he understand not everyone can afford to run out and buy a fuel efficient vehicle?
Dow has dropped 75 points since a__hole opened his yap.
uh uh uh?
better go meet that satchel guy at the gym before the next speech
we will make election history on this historic moment the economic calamity that we all face. We don’t have easy solutions just hard facts. We need a calm head of clams.
Fill er up with ethol.
You know, GM probably never thought of that. Seriously. This guy is sooooooo smart!
I want to go on vacation again —maybe back to Europe where I’ll feel welcome again and won’t have to apologize for being an American......I’ll be waiting for the check in the mail which will enable me to go.....
...not holding my breath, though..
We wore black in our family as well the day after. What is really cool is in our neighborhood, the McCain/Palin signs are still out! I just think that is the neatest thing. It’s like a mini-solidarity movement (or denial), LOL.
A room full of “tingly” legs.
That “office of the president elect” sign is downright classless. First, there is no such office. And second, the sign looks like it was printed in a hurry at a “Signs In Ten Minutes” type store.
Does his limo have a “Car of the president elect” sign?
It’s a summary of his campaign speech.
Stock market is dropping.
I haven’t heard one line of substance
This happens every time a president speaks.
uh....uh....whats that red spot on his face? Anybody know? He sounds like a dope.
Make that -100 now.
Finally as we monitor and address these immediate economic challenges we will be moving forward...can’t afford to wait...
Close by saying I do not underestimate the enormity of the task that lies ahead. Bla bla bla.
Choices will be difficult. It is not going to be easy or quick. We will succeed if we put aside politics...one nation.
He’s done? Now taking questions? So that speech lasted what, two minutes? Geesh!!!
DON’T BLAME ME. I VOTED FOR McCAIN!
That’s what the internet and Free Republic is for. Also, you need to get TIVO, then you can record things you like, and skip things you don’t like. Isn’t technology wonderful.
"... and then: Joe Biden strode onto the stage."
BO starts talking and DOW starts tanking.
It was at 230 when he started. It is now at 145.
Oh, but when the newsies finish fawning over him, it will be the Sermon on the Mount.
Sheppie and Chrissy and preparing to swoon.
Thank goodness we don’t have the “Uh Uh Uh” or the “Middle-class family” drinking game going...I’d be blasted by now...magritte
Sure sounds to me like he is punting and asking Bush to do things in the meantime.
“I hope he knows hes late on my mortgage payment.”
Yep, he needs to get those checks a flowin’. I know we are all supposed to share the ‘wealth.’ I wonder what else we are going to have to share??
First question from the green pumpkin.
Is he bad enough that I would enjoy watching?
Maybe the short speech is a good sign.
If I was GWB I wouldn’t lift a finger for this clown.
He based his whole campaign on attacking the Bush Administration, so let make him wait until Jan 20th to put *his* plan in place.
Did Joe stagger?
This the biggest joke of the 21th century How was America so stupid as to elect this chump?
another stimulus package.....ahh a one time shot in the arm
Now at 120 and dropping like a stone. Who would have believed it.
So far spend spend spend.
Dear Leader has a deer-in-headlights expression.
After the 2000 election, what would have been the media response if Bush started staging "Office of the President-elect" briefings, and generally acting as though his term had already started before Clinton had left office?
