OK, so once again the republicans/tea-Party folks are at it again. They made the President of the United States change the date for his nationwide televised address about jobs? I am confused here who is the leader here OBAMA or not? This is why this country is heading for trouble. I am 49 years old and I can not recall the last time the speaker of the house or anyone made a president change the date of a televised address so what the hell is this crap.

 

The republicans/tea-party folks are for the rich and for business and so forth. Back in the day there was a middle class not anymore and well thank those republicans for that. It seems that if we keep going the way we are going well my kids and my grand kids and my great grand kids will be even more screwed then what is happening hear and now. I live in the United States of America and I am not a happy camper.

From way back(for me) in the 70's I remember Tip O'Neill cutting short a televised house debate for the kickoff of monday night football(the massholes were playing). Can't find any record of it on the interwebz, I think the hearing was regarding the Israel-Egypt peace accord. I was too young to pretend to care about such matters, I was waiting to see the game and the TV station printed the message that O'Neill had saved MNF from the good guys.

If I'm not mistaken, Obama also changed the date of a speech in 2010 when it conflicted with the series finale of Lost.  He's got to give the people what the want :)

looked this up, it doesn't have much support now since he said no way, but after Obama does his latest Great New Speech and the Tea Party hits him in the teeth with a brick, it might get some steam

 

why not

Why is there still the misapprehension that the Dems are in some way different from the Repubs, not beholden to, carrying the water for, and bending over for the rich?

So maybe we should start calling them "The Obama Tax Cuts"

   Joe-

    It occurred to me the other day while watching "the professional left" bitch that Bush policies are responsible for the sorry economy, not Obama. What are Obama's economic policies? 3 years in and he has extended the Bush tax cuts and may not be able to change them because of congress(and the election) next year. Aren't Bush's policies now effectively his? Since he didn't changed them when he had the opportunity, technically isn't he as responsible for the recession/depression as Bush? Perhaps more so because after seeing the aftermath of those policies, he continued them, whereas Bush may have felt some responsibility and allowed them to be tweaked to the left if not allowed them to expire?

    On the other hand I was pleasantly surprised to see AT&T get  served by Justice, despite Bill Daley.

I think Obama was pokin' the repubs, forcing them to look small in preferring their debate to his address.  He is, after all, the pres.

   I can't get too upset about it. After the last three years, I wonder what the hell Obama was thinking when he tried to schedule an address the same night as a republican debate and actually expected them not to try to screw him. He should have just announced his plans on TV from the White House the night before their debate, giving them one day to prep all new material and giving Perry and Bachmann the chance say something completely whacked out on national TV.

    On a completely unrelated note- someone(can't remember who) on MSNBC had a new name for Romney: Mittens the Pander Bear hehe  waiting for the photoshopped pedo-bear

Pitch In!
