I will guess he'll be on time since it's late. I'm wondering how many times we will hear that the radical right....meaning the Tea Party is holding the Republicans hostage, or some nonsense like that.

Just needs a couple of tweaks - “millionaires and billionaires”, “corporate jets” and “balanced approach” would greatly assist in Obama BS Bingo for this one.

First prize is five minutes with Harry Reid. Second prize is five minutes with Nancy Pelosi. Third prize is five minutes with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Fourth prize is being locked in a bathroom with Alan Grayson.

Neither, its how late he is getting to the podium. We are betting on how late he is. He is as bad as Clinton ever was, only he is 10% the president, which is really freaking disappointing to say the least, even if it isn’t surprising.

Ok 12 seconds because he wants to get back to The Bachelorette. He could be early by 12 for the same reason so i’m taking the over under of 12 seconds early or 12 late.

It’s a whole cart of Obama BS. The media is on his side, we all know that. Without knowing the questions, or the sampling rate, quotong polls is totally worthless, it sounds good but means nothing unless they give the data that goes into the poll. So much depends on the questions they ask, how they ask them, and what questions got asked before it. Quoting a stat from a poll is meaningless really, its nothing other than slight of hand.

Ph! Well then, it depends on how long the makeup artist takes to cover up the blue with white powder. As long as he is crying, it might be difficult. So, it will be until the zanax takes effect. 27 minutes.

Yeah - in the CNN poll. It's like polling the DNC.

In a poll put out today, Obomas strong disapproval is in the high 40's, and strong approval in low 20's. He's sinking like a rock!

This is why he does NOT want a budget deal. His only hope is to blame the failing economy on Republicans. It's his hail Mary pass. It's his only chance for reelection. If the Republicans can't be blamed - he's toast.

I won't be able to listen live, but if Obama put as much effort into documenting a plan as he puts into attacking the GOP plans, he'd have a plan by now.

I don't think he wants a plan. The Democrats don't want a plan. They just want to keep whacking away at the GOP bogeyman.

I found these two tweets from Knoller (cbs) intersting:
markknoller Mark Knoller

WH wants this seen as a President delivering an imporant policy address rather than one side of a political debate.
7 minutes ago

markknoller Mark Knoller

WH would have preferred that Pres. Obama have the national stage to himself tonight without a GOP response.
23 minutes ago

O'Reilly just quoted a Rasmussen poll that has Obama stinkin' it up at 23% Strongly Approve and 44% Strongly Disapprove.

I suspect CNN polls, like much of the MSM output, are well, suspect. The wording and the internals probably help skew things.

Here comes B.O....to stink up our TV screens with his temper tantrum du jour.
