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.

Nope, he was more like 45-50 minutes late. What was he doing?

Perhaps his handlers were looking for his original installation disks to do a full restore back to Obama 1.0 (2008 "Messiah" Edition). The current release 1.3 (2011 "Petulant Peacock" Edition) is plagued with usability issues. The head thrashing during a speech is one symptom.

Wonder if Reid and Pelosi are ready to give Barry a suicide pill.

On the top of the article it says:
Right View
No dam breaking here.
Spaniards are having their siesta. Here’s the run down fro the London Telegraph:
Now Spain’s Parliament won’t vote on key changes to the European Union’s bailout funds until September because the legislature is in the midst of its summer recess, a Spanish Finance Ministry official has said.

21.00 Obama’s doing the rounds. He has called Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to discuss the global debt crisis, the Italian government said.

“The situation on financial markets in the United States and Europe was at the centre of the cordial conversation,” the government said in a statement.

As I was watching Obama talk, I swear I saw his nose start to grow.

What does it say about him that he cannot ever be on time? Seriously.

They knew the downgrade was coming and that is why the MSM/libs proclaimed the debt deal as a TEA Party victory even though the TEA Party oppsed it more than any other group. It was all a set up for this.

I’m starting to think that he has always meant to transfer wealth from the rich to the poor but in such a way that didn’t kill the golden goose, that there would always be enough wealth to go around. I think he’s now realizing that there might not be enough for anybody, including himself.

I just flipped to CNBC just because I thought I needed to see what someone else was saying and the guy on there said, Markets can’t go up forever and they can’t go down forever.. and then the girl called it a “soft patch”. Hmmmm....

“In the WaPo???????????............he’s toast.......”

We have had two Democrat Pesidents in my lifetime who withdrew from campaigns for another term due to the disastrous policies they pursued during their time in office as president. For a third to withdraw would hardly be surprising or unprecendented.

I think Jennifer Rubin is the WP’s house conservative. It’s not as if the editorial board has turned on Obama.
