Nope.

I sincerely hope he enjoys his day as miserably as possible, with the dawning realization that his old single schtick has not worked and will not work this time.

Same old, same old.... SOS! Obama wants more money to fund his social welfare society. Period.

Instead of slamming the so called rich and small business owners with higher taxes to fund Obama federal bureaucracy, how about asking some of the 45% of Americans who don't pay a dime of federal taxes to sacrifice and kick in a few bucks.

When is someone going to ask him why the Democrats have not produced a budget in over 800 days.

His response on entitlement reform is pure BS. We can make changes but they have to be preserved. No specifics. Just some words, mere words.

I just overheard a black woman talking on her cell phone and she was saying “They have the President between a rock and hard place.”

I am so sick of this man I could scream!!


Actually, last night I saw him on top of a garbage heap on the Upper East Side. Someone had painted a portrait of Barry in front of the Capitol building and must be sick of him, too, because it ended up in the trash!

Hans Nichols of Bloomberg News asks Obama about new GOP plan. Obama says he hasn’t seen it. Obama says if debt ceiling not raised $2.4 trillion you will be gutting programs. Obamageddon!

I just turned off my television. Just can’t stand the guy.

I never watch it on TV. I follow along on these live threads, thank God that other FReepers are able to stomach that disgusting mess. I will endure the audio playbacks that hosts like Levin will play since it is usually accompanied by some good commentary that helps the "medicine" go down!

This guy is touting $1 trillion over 10 years. That works out to $100 billion a year out of almost a $4 trillion annual budget. It is not even a rounding error.

Will reporters ask about “shared sacrifice” of White House staffers getting steep raises last year with many making well over $100k?

Why is student loan debt even an issue? Students can work themselves though college. You know, work during the day, classes at night. BO is doing the pity thing for every group except hard working Americans.

Balance budget amendment will result in cutting SS and Medicare. Yes, both programs are unsustainable. The General Fund is paying 51% of Medicare’s costs.

Little remembered fact:

Apparently, White House Presidential stationery was misprinted at one point under Reagan. Rather that tossing it out and reordering, he would correct it himself (when using it) until the supply was exhausted.
