Hey, 2stupid4words, how'd you like the butt-kickin' our President gave to 140 Republicans yesterday? They asked him specially prepared questions and he proved he knew more than all of them put together.

Oh, I forgot - you didn't see it because Fox stopped their coverage when President Obama kicked their butts.

How about the fact that the arrogant President, chided the Supreme Court in his State of the Union. The issue is not whether or not you agree with what the President said, but rather should he have used that venue to do it.

This country has three EQUAL branches of government by design. These checks and balances keep any one branch from gaining too much power. In the State of the Union address, he proved that he sees himself as the greatest part of our representative government. It's actually sad.

Before a nationwide audience, he, in so many words, belittled the Supreme Court, accusing them of making a bad decision. Of course, Obama wouldn't know anything about bad decisions.

You're saying that the Supreme Court is above critcism?

It was necessary. The state of the Union is in danger. A group of right wing radicals are trying to hijack our Constitution, take political power away from the people and give it to the corporations, who already have too much power. Obama is right to try to stop them.

The people are supposed to rule in this country, not the corporations. Yes, corporations have people in them but democracy means one person, one vote - not one dollar, one vote. None of us can buy hours and hours of time on every TV and radio station in the country and full-page ads in every newspaper. But the corporations can because they have the money.

So if the inability to do that is a denial of free speech, then every citizen is being denied the right to speak freely. The Supreme Court's decision completely denies common sense and what every American knows.

The President said what a lot of people should have begun saying a long time ago. The federal courts have been systematically stacked by the radical right wing for three decades now. Alito's inability to contain himself was proof that the right wing hacks on the Court have a political agenda.

I just love how the right whines and moans when we have a President who stands up for people but has no problem at all criticizing "activist judges" when they don't get their way.

How about the fact that you completely changed the subject because you don't want to talk about

the butt-kickin' Obama just gave the Republicans!

So, President Obama delivers a speech before the Republicans, and this amounts to a "butt-kicking"??? If anyone challenged him during the speech, it would have been plastered on the nightly news, so that option was out. Frankly, the message aside, I think the Republicans behaved exactly how they should have during a speech by the President. They don't have to agree on the issues, or the right way to solve the issues, but they DO have to find a way to work together. YES, BOTH of them.

You make it sound like Alito was screaming and yelling from the balcony; he quietly nodded no and mouthed the words "NOT TRUE". Not sure he was even heard by those sitting around him. Compare his behavior with that of Nancy Pelosi during ANY of George Bush's State of the Union addresses.

You question the monies that will now flow into the election, but ignore the fact that labor unions have contributed virtually unchecked FOR YEARS. Don't get me wrong, I believe that money is the root of many of the evils that lie in Washington D.C., but you can't pick and choose which money is virtuous, and which is used for illicit means. I would rather they eliminated all limits on money collected, and MANDATED complete disclosure. If a candidate collects a dollar or 20 million dollars, it should be required that the donors name be publicly listed for all to see; this way as we head to the polls, at least you would know if your candidate has been bought, and by whom. Failure to comply with this disclosure would be to be eliminated from that election. Not sure you would find too many trying to circumvent the law.

And yes, I hate activist judges. The left talks of things like abortion as a constitutional right (personally, I believe its an individual right, and shouldn't be legislated, just don't see it in the Constitution, anywhere), about individual liberties, but would support a healthcare bill that would REQUIRE you to buy insurance. It's not about getting "my way" its about legislating from the bench, which is provided for by a DIFFERENT BRANCH of this government.

Finally, I agree, the people are supposed to run this country, not the LAWYERS. Ask yourself what percentage of our elected government has a degree in law; compare that number to the "Average Joe" or tradesman in politics.

Obama tried to work with the Republicans and all they did was spit in his face. Seven Republican Senators just killed a bill for a budget commission they had co-sponsored.

The minute Obama said he was for their proposal, the Republican scumbags turned against it.

And the meeting at which Obama

kicked the Republicans' butts

wasn't just a speech.

It was a meeting put together by a Republican Congressman from Indiana.

They Republicans made their own little speeches and tried to challenge the President.

He kicked their silly Republican butts.

You might as well face the facts . . . oh wait, I forgot. You're a Republican.

You don't care about the facts.

That's not the point. If you pay attention, you'll see that the Justices don't generally applaud anything the President says. That's because by tradition they are supposed to be politically neutral. Alito proved he had an agenda and that he can't control himself the way judges are expected to do.

And you are still missing the point that Obama's arrogance won't allow him to realize that he is only ONE THIRD of the process. Each time he makes a speech he tells others what THEY should do. He continues to blame others (and government spending in the last eight years 6 Rep. and 2 Dem. is WAY out of control) rather than accept that this is indeed the job he interviewed for.

He either starts to lead, or he is admitting that he wasn't prepared in the first place. And no, leadership is not just telling others what to do.

Sounds like the Loonys are a little upset over the bloodbath in Mass. TS fellas, get used to it, that was just the start of many bloodbaths to be held this year.

I especially can't wait for the election in Illinois for the Annointed One's former seat. Keep sharp objects away from all Loonys if the GOP takes that one.

YOU'RE MISSING THE POINT! (Why am I not surprised?) It was not a "speech". It was a question and answer session---or more appropriately---an ambush. The GOP (Grand Ole Phonies) came prepared with scripted queries and just the right amount of smugness. The President took no prisoners. He was absolutely brilliant!!!

Wouldn't you have loved to have seen Blathering Bush or Cheeky Chaney tap dance to a chorus of Dem questioners? Of course, neither one had the b**** or the brains to attempt it. To bad, it might have provided some comedic moments in an otherwise tragic era.

Are you freaking kidding me?! Obama has bent over backward trying to work with Republicans, so much that he has lost support among his base. Instead of writing health care legislation himself, he left the details to Congress, then he "negotiated" away element after element in the legislation to try to win some Republican support. He has consistently tried to win Republican support but their political strategy is more important to them than the country. Seven Republican Senators just came out to oppose a bill that had originated with their sponsorship! It was arrogant and reckless on their part but not on his. You're being completely unreasonable and completely unfair to Obama.

And are you freaking kidding me about telling others what they are supposed to do?! He's the freaking President, he's supposed to do have an agenda and push it. It's called leadership. He's certainly not telling everyone "you're either for us or you're against us," like Bush did, and he's not even telling them exactly what has to be in the legislation. He's basically telling them to act like grown-ups and do their jobs, with an emphasis on key issues. Then you whine that he's not leading!!

And that is not all he's doing. He is meeting with members of both parties and answering their questions - publicly, though I wouldn't bet the Republicans will do it again after the

BUTT-KICKIN'

he just gave them. He has been meeting with them, only now he's doing it more openly.

And it is a fact that he inherited a disaster.

But hey, you're so smart, you tell us . . .

What would you do to get people back to work, get the deficit down, fix the health care system, rebuild our infrastructure, aid the development of new energy technologies and get us out of two wars?

I'll give you exactly a week to come up with a plan that can work, pass the Congress and satisfy the American people.

What is wrong with you?

There's nothing wrong with him, it's you dummy. Obama has broken every campaign promise and is trying to trash the constitution and turn the U.S. into a socialist country with his government run ObamaCare. Did you see on the TV today where a big government official in Canada is in the U.S. for heart surgery? I wonder what he knows that you apparently don't??

I saw the interview with the Canadian Prime Minister on tv today. He said he would have had to wait 3 months for his surgery in Canada, so he opted to

come to the U.S. Here's a question to ponder; if we get socialized healthcare like Canada, where will the Canadians go for their surgery?

Dear Stupid,

So a right wing Canadian with a lot of money and a poltical agenda decided to make a political point by leaving his country to get health care. So?

And just where is he going? A home of "conservative" virtue like Omaha, Kansas, or Biloxi, Mississippi? Hell no, he's going to a top medical center, just like rich people in the Hamptons do when they want the best care and come into New York City. :D

But of course you think we can continue to feed the insurance companies hundreds of billions of dollars every year and that doesn't cost anything, right? Meanwhile, other countries with national health care systems get better care and their people live longer and they pay less. How does that happen if their health care systems are so bad?

You right wingers are so damned stupid! The rich people, courtesy of Fox Noise, are telling you what to think and you're buying every word of it. :rolleyes:

From POLITICO:

Senate Republicans don't have much of an appetite to give President Barack Obama their version of question-and-answer time - not after seeing how Obama handled House Republicans last week.

"We're always happy to hear from the president but I don't really feel any compelling need to do it [on camera]," Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the Republicans' chief campaign strategist, told POLITICO.

Yeah, I'll bet. :rolleyes: They don't want a

BUTT-KICKIN'!

That's how mindless you are. Use sources that have true information, not just sources that you agree with. Politico's report is true. If you don't think so, find reliable evidence that it isn't true.

Sorry, apparently the irony went over your head. I recognize the Spectator as having an agenda; sad fact is that YOU don't recognize that Politico does.
