The title should be “Obama Speaks on Sequesteria” as Rush Limbaugh calls it.

Thanks, but no thanks, Keith. I have had this great flu bug for the past few days, and have thrown up enough already.

He’s late…..not a surprise. He certainly does not respect the American people, our time nor our money. I think I’ll stick with Rush for the next 45 minutes and find out later what Skeeter had to say.

Isn’t it kind of unprecedented for the president to try to hurt the American people (as he likes to call us)–just so the other side will be blamed?

It’s already started, the so&so’s have jumped the gun and released an unknown number of detained illegals on to the streets.
This is going to get ugly.

Yep, let the beatings of the peasants begin. We will all be punished for resisting the emperor’s will.

are we ready for more lies and fear bullshit and who is going to buy it?

Our local news (Newport News area) is covering it on Facebook, so funny because none of the comments are supportive of Obama. The theme seems to be “all words, no action, go back to DC and get to work”.

Oh, and the comments about the local traffic tie-ups, UnPrintable :D

Thanks for the warning.
I wont turn on FNC for awhile (their afternoon hosts; Megan Kelly & Shepard Smith seem to enjoy showing all of Obama speaking… guess so they dont have to work at ‘reading’ the news)

Megyn is a lawyer and does more than read the news.

Let’s see. After a busy morning (that daily briefing thing), he takes a 20 minute flight to Newport News, has something like an hour and a half to “prepare” for his speech — this time with ships and human props — he’s still eighteen minutes late for his own speech.

This apparently was set up far in advance — he mentioned on of their submarines was sponsored by his wife.

Can somebody buy this guy a clock? If the Senate is following him, it’s no wonder they’re four years late with a budget.

Eighteen minutes late to a twenty-one minute speech, a flight back to D.C. and our “laser focused, won’t rest until this is done” President is through for the day.

While continually blaming our problems on the GOP, Obama had the gall to say “I’ve run my last election. I’m not interested in playing the spin game or blaming others, just solving problems.”

Maybe his TelePrompTer should allow him to see what he just said before he dishonestly claims he didn’t say it.

Our late President needs his clock cleaned.

What a clueless, boneheaded move to go to the shipyards and try to convince hard -working Americans that he’s done everything he could, but , well, too bad for you.

I live in Tidewater. His campaign-style speech is disgusting as usual. The stupid people in NN are sitting there applauding him. He lied at least 20 times. I stopped counting. Back on the “corporate jet” crap. Hey, I feel for these people if they lose their jobs, but in reality, something has to be done to STOP THE SPENDING. He spent more than $200K flying into Langley and messing up the traffic on the entire peninsula. So disgusting. Makes me want to throw up.

Obama always “speaks”….”delivers remarks” WTF is he going to do some work?

I refuse to listen, and I agree with Sen. Ron Johnson that if Boehner caves again, there will be a new Speaker.

Reply

DeniseVB February 26, 2013 at 3:15 pm

I wanted Paul Ryan as Speaker, because he’s more a policy wonk than career politician. None of the clowns in leadership positions impress me now.

I’m a little surprised that Obama has not had William Jefferson Clinton come out and make any comments on this new impending danger to the American way.

Big Bill has gone into seclusion now that Hills is out of DC. I doubt he will do much for BO in the near future.
