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.

Just think how bad the selloff would have been had Obama not made his speech.

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.

Here is your answer as written at the link to her column:

“Jennifer Rubin writes the Right Turn blog for The Post, offering reported opinion from a conservative perspective.”

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.

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?.


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 Obama’s 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.

Obama had all weekend and the best he could come up with was a reiteration of his plea for a “balanced” approach to deficit control

Had to golf this weekend, silly.

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.

Liberal establishment is gearing up to support a primary run by a Democrat.

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?

comrade obama is deliberately doing this.

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.
