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."
OH NOW HE WANTS TO WORK TOGETHER......... hahahah NO
“I’m the President of the United States... and we’ve not made as much progress as we need to make...”
Noooooooooooo! Stop the reckless progress!
He’s carefully avoiding the words “Health Care and Over turn...”
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.”
Damn. Oh well, for all we know, Issa could be “creatively manufacturing the truth”, God, I hope so.
Something like “are you willing to admit this was a repudiation of your policies?” That’s a paraphrase.
I hate it when he saus “people are frustrated”. We’re furious with him!
electric cars, blah blah blah
...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.
The man is delusional and sick in the head.
I hate it when he and his fellow ‘rats use the term “move forward”.
Holy hell how long does it take to answer this first question?
He is NOT happy.
Somebody messed with his plans. How dare they !
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!
Wow another tough question.....
“I have to do a better job.”
DON’T FALL FOR IT.
HE’S LOOKING FOR WONDERFUL MEDIA HEADLINES WHICH HE WIL GET!
Wow, the media is actually nailing him!
“Could the voters conclude that you’re still not getting it?”
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.
Maybe that is what’s putting me to sleep listening to him.
He wants us to sit down now and come up with a set of ideas??!!
He just doesn’t get it.
SAVANNAH! Wow - what a question!
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.
Obama just doesn’t do humility very well.
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!
“if you aren’t willing to admit it was your policy that caused the election results is it possible you just aren’t getting it.” Lol (paraphrase, by the way).
0 does not like the tone of the questions.
Has the MSM worm turned?
NBC, was it?
NBC: “Is it possible you just don’t get it?”
He’s Yul Brenner in “Westworld.”
Looks like MSM is getting it..... we are a middle right country! Don’t mess with us! Obama slapped her in the face but made he look more like a head strong idiot!
I wanna know what brought this on! Course it doesn’t make a difference as he’s skirting the questions BIG time.
The press is finally doing their job. Smirky little look on the lady questioners’ face!
Who’s the hottie reporterette that asked the followup?
He is such as ass. He will never, ever admit he was wrong. Never. Ugh.
NBC and AP actually asking real questions. Shocking.
Next question from Savannah Guthrie, NBC: ‘You don’t seem reflective...Do you not get it?’
OMG he is getting a tough SECOND your policies...you seem to be sticking to them..... question
Now he is babbling making excuses sticking to his FRICKING AGENDA
YOUR STILL NOT GETTING IT
a responce to an emergency my ass hole
He saved the country from a Depression. It was an EMERGENCY situation...
He's such a tool.
Yes - what a great question. He is clearly not comfortable with this line of questioning.
The press is actually giving him a moderate dose of hell for the first time. The corrput bastards still seem timid though. It probably is a set-up. Trust Rush.
They’ve turned on him..the media knows they screwed up and they have to look tough on him before the public realize they have no clothes. Yeah, look at this day as his Waterloo, his Midway. Now comes the long hard struggle to put this pretender back on a plane to Chicago.
Oh, we’re so stupid—we thought this was his AGENDA, when it was just an emergency response!
We haven’t had a chance to hear his AGENDA yet!
Oh my God, this is surreal.
ALL for media consumption - he’s taking off for India!
He is not going to do anything different. Listen to Rush. Not this Marxist.
He’s talking funny. He does not do well with cold questions. It shows how goofy he really is.
THE MSM have been told he is on his way out
OMG he is still babbling saying
He does not have a stinkin’ clue!! I am hearing “It’s still Bushes Fault”, and “ME, ME, Me”!
Has he made contact even once with the camera in front of him....Looked the people in the eye even one time....If not it’s pure BS.
“I don’t think people carry around with them a fixed ideology.” !!!
He’s completely delusional.
