"I actually do sense that he feels slightly humbled. He looks like he got his weenie whacked."

I respectfully disagree. He's laying groundwork (for the media) to blame the GOP Congress if nothing gets done on his agenda. This is still All About Him. This is definitely not a "I tried and it didn't work, so we'll yield" speech. For BHO, the idea of Common Ground means "compromise to MY agenda."

Rush said it’s all a set up - that he’s saying everything that McConnell and Boehner want to hear.

“Not about me - all about working for the American people.”

notice he keeps his head down and will not look at the camera. Telltale sign that he does not believe what he says and is disengaged. I will not watch him, I will read here though.

...people aren’t seeing that progress...

==

400K+ new unemployed EACH WEEK!

17% U6 unemployment

9.6% general unemployment

Bush tax cuts expiring in less than 2 months.

No, it doesn’t look like much progress, not have the indebtedness of $1Trillion+ in useless stimulus bills.

OMG. He will NOT admit that his agenda is what killed the democrats. Such an egomaniac.

And, he never will! Pompous ass!

As I see it, the only way this Bozo can do a better job, is get out of the Office! And, get the hell out of the way!

He opens with a lecture on civility. And reminds us that he’s the president. He brushes aside the economy is talking about electric cars.

It’s the trap of his ideology—he cannot change because he thinks he’s right and we’re all wrong—we just don’t UNDERSTAND that he’s right and we’re wrong.

Two more years of bitching about enemies and blaming others.

Same crap as after his election - he wants politics out of it, open to any good ideas, blah, blah, blah and he immediately set up one of the least transparent and inclusive admins in history.

Of course he doesn’t answer the question, was this a vote on his agenda.

I hate this asshole with every fibre in my body, as he lies and slimes his push towards socialism

Clinton was a rapist and a indecent human being, as George Will said, “ not the worst President in history, but clearly the worst person to ever be President.” This guy is a Marxist who wants to transform the economic and political foundations of this country.

Maybe we would do better with a rapist.

"What for?"

He has to. Politically if he does not, he is damaged more than what the election did to him.

If he ignores the election it looks like he is ignoring the voters and the matter is compounded by the fact he is leaving the country soon and it would look like he is running away which would make him look even weaker!
