He was a half hour late. His head turned from side to side as if he were attending a tennis match. He practically never looked in the camera, as if he were averting our gaze. And those were the strong parts of President Obama’s disastrous speech.

meltdown sequence commencing in 3.....2......1......
Another lie from the Faux News Network...oh wait...
comrade obama is deliberately doing this.
He is like Charlie Brown’s teacher, waa waa waa wa waa..... Nobody listens anymore. Its awful and quite frankly scary
He is a bumbling fool, Sub-Driver. Yet I work daily with people who think this Kenyan Commie is a Messiah. Makes me want to throw up. They complain to the boss if I remind them how is an utter moron.
Disgusting that he is not being rejected by 80% of the electorate.
Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark.
Nope, he was more like 45-50 minutes late. What was he doing? Having lunch? Finishing a cigaret? Filling out his bracket picks? Planning his next vacation? Throwing up?
If WAPO turned on him it’s over. He will be out in a month.
Things are looking bad in Obamalot...
"Obamas predicament devoid of ideas, bitter about political opposition and completely in over his head."
As my old Navy Warrant use to say, “Leadership is not something you learn in a book Shipmate, either you have it or don’t and the first thing all leaders do is get their heads out of their a**es!”
Nothing wrong with this post, other than it is missing the author: Jennifer Rubin.
Without attribution to her, it makes it look like it’s an “official, voice of the Washington Post” editorial - which would be too much to ask for.
Anyone know which way Rubin usually runs? Is she their “house conservative”, or does she usually run more liberal? If the latter, this could be a sign of a dam breaking....
The only comfort I can take in this disaster of the last week is that are millions of Libs and Dems who probably lost alot more cash that I. Ha Ha DUmmies- Hope & Change!
Meanwhile, there's another WP piece covering for the Won and saying that says Obama's only fault in the speech was the timing. He should have given it Saturday.
.Warren Harding figured it out in 1920...
Congress and the Executive Branch have lots to do.
So far theyre not doin it right..
Its been done before..
Harding cut the governments budget nearly in half between 1920 and 1922. The rest of Hardings approach was equally laissez-faire. Tax rates were slashed for all income groups. The national debt was reduced by one-third. The Federal Reserves activity, moreover, was hardly noticeable. As one economic historian puts it, Despite the severity of the contraction, the Fed did not move to use its powers to turn the money supply around and fight the contraction. 2 By the late summer of 1921, signs of recovery were already visible. The following year, unemployment was back down to 6.7 percent and was only 2.4 percent by 1923.
BTW..ole Warren ALSO fixed immigration...
Mr. Harding signed into law the Emergency Quota Act which sought to control immigration following World War I and preserve the distinctive American culture by ensuring the majority of immigrants came from the historically compatible cultures of Northern Europe. This law aimed to bring wages of hard working Americans under control by limiting immigration to 3% of the 1910 census. It was followed on by a similar act in 1924, after Mr. Hardings death.
A Warren Harding prescription...if filled ...would ignite the afterburners on the US job machine and the economy. However DC would have to yield on a tremendous amount of power. Our job as We the People...is to persuade them of the utlitity ..shall we say..of doing so.
Any takers that ‘Bammy couldn’t even tell you that Warren Harding was one of his predecessors in office?
I’ll be praying. Please tap me on the shoulder when the revolution starts. I missed the first one.
Maybe he was practicing his putting.
There is not a facepalm epic enough to accommodate this.
Obama has saved us all.
(...do I really need a sarcasm tag???)
Oh, never mind on the “political bent” part: the title of her column is “Right Turn”.
(Abuse button hit, in a friendly way, on the article to get Jennifer Rubin in as the author for the thread header....)
What’s he going to say tomorrow if we have another 500+ point drop? Or the next day, or the day after that?
I’ll go out on a limb here a bit and predict Dow 8,000 and 12% unemployment by next summer.
“Jennifer Rubin writes the Right Turn blog for The Post, offering reported opinion from a conservative perspective.”
You need to read the comments after the article. It is STILL not his fault! Idiots!
Which speech is she referring to? He gives so many of them now, just about every other day. There needs to be a quota.
If she’s talking about the “speech” he gave while I was in the shower this morning, all I caught was something about “diversity.” Really, he can’t even refer to fallen heroes without making it about race? Unbelievable, pathetic, morally bankrupt.
In the WaPo???????????............he’s toast.......
Oh, come on. He needed a little extra time to prepare.
Cut him some slack, he spent all of the weekend partying and playing golf at Camp David and if the poor man needs some extra time to catch up on what's happinin’ now in the world, lets not begrudge him and extra hour or so.
The Dow fell more than 600 points Monday, and had one of its largest plunges immediately following President Obamas speech in the afternoon regarding the downgrade on U.S. debt. In his first public statement following the S&P downgrade, President Obama attempted to encourage Americans that markets still regard the U.S. government debt as being the highest possible grade.
Had to golf this weekend, silly.
She is the token wapo conservative, so this is not anyhthing to get excited about.
BO is finding it difficult to destroy the nation and getting re-elected at the same time.
I think the Urkel/Obama “I did that” is needed at this point.
Apparently this writer does not know about the teleprompter.
Liberal establishment is gearing up to support a primary run by a Democrat.
Jenn is the resident conservative at the WaPo, believe it or not.
I didn’t get to hear it but I turned on the car radio and Rush was having a spasm so it must have been pretty poor.
Did he say how heartbroken he is that we lost 25 SEALs?
On behalf of his good buddy, George Soros. Otherwise known as The Man Who Broke The Bank Of England.
Rush refers to it as Obamageddon. Barackalypse Now.
WHEN is this Bumbling Kenyan Imbecile ,going to Quit?? We are not a Room filled with his ACORN, Do nothing Morons!
True but there was a time not that long ago when WAPO would have spiked that column fast.
I seriously can not listen to him anymore. It feels like my head is going to explode when I do! (What does it mean when he turns into a serpent?) Just asking...
The author is a token conservative at the WP.
I’m willing to take that chance.
