This is the most disgustingly dishonest partisan speech he has ever given. And that says a lot.

You deserve a medal for watching it, Owen.

Here’s something to tickle your funny bone:

He wanted so bad to get off on a rant about gun control but the teleprompter told him not to…

It says his speech just concluded as of 1:00PM. Was he super late or did he talk for over an hour? Schedule says remarks at 11:40AM.

Fifty minutes late

52 minutes late for a 26 minute speech, of which some 4 minutes were on the D.C.shooting, and about 15 minutes on how the evil GOP is trying to destroy America.

It took a while for Obama to get into the speech, as for most of it the audience sat back as if they were impatient for him to leave so the real entertainment could begin.

Maybe because of the shootings in DC? I’m sure security would want some time to assess the situation.

Maybe Obama should call Putin about what to do with that tiresome Republican opposition.

Putin sure knows how to deal with journalists.

Gotta love it when the Carnival Barker brags about how Obama has cut spending and the deficit so much this year.

What he forgets is that so much of that is due to the sequester that Obama rants and raves about constantly. It would be good if someone reminded him of that.

If the sequester is lifted, Obama will easily make up for lost time.

Hey !
He shut down the White House tours, and saved his money so that he can have concerts in the White House for him and the Mrs.
He’s just like us.

Hey Carney,
Why is Obama holding a lavish private party tonight AND yet the White House is still closed to the public?

Reply

AFVet September 16, 2013 at 2:55 pm

Carney is a hoot.
He is nothing more than a hamster on a wheel in a cage in the White House.

Reply

Langley Spook September 16, 2013 at 3:02 pm

I can think of several other 4 letter words to describe Carney, “hoot” is not one of them.

This whole administration is “By Invitation Only”.
It’s OUR house. It’s OUR money.
Mark Steyn is right: the o’s think and act as if they are royalty. As he says, the Queen of England is a better bargain. (plus she probably works harder. And more often.
AND why are they still partying lavishly after the Navy Yard murders?

Read on Breitbart that Mooch told a bunch of high school kids that Barry “will shake his groove thing” tonight at the shindig. These people have no shame.

I suspect Queen Elizabeth works harder in a week than Barry has in his entire reign so far.

Just got back from running errands and had Rush on the radio for company, he said Obama made up that whole speech and debunked every bit of it. Was he close?

I know he referred to the Navy Yard, has he given any endearing statements for the people in Colorado yet ?

Reply

Girly1 September 16, 2013 at 3:16 pm

No need to listen to him anymore – he has crossed the Rubicon – bats in the belfry – delusional. He should be restrained and placed in a ‘safe room’.

Reply

Langley Spook September 16, 2013 at 3:26 pm

I can only watch Obama on closed-captioning/MUTE, or better yet I just switch to ESPN.

Reply

Susan September 16, 2013 at 3:24 pm

Rush was spot on, DeniseVB. He can read these leftists like a book. One figure Rush quoted that really stunned me was that the Federal Reserve and other central banks have printed $18 trillion over the past 5 years for a piddly $1 trillion in economic growth. If the ruling class isn’t able to kill us off with Obamacare, this printing of money will surely be the end of US. Maybe that’s why Uncle Ben is getting out of Dodge.

Colorado? He almost sounded peeved when he mentioned the attack on the Navy Yard, he certainly couldn’t be bothered to mention the dead and missing in the Colorado floods.

Reply

Girly1 September 16, 2013 at 3:55 pm

Just caught a minute of Rush but he said Yelsin will stop quantitative easing – she wants higher interest rates. That should finish Obama off for 2014, hopefully.
On the other hand, others have said she is dovish and will bend over backwards to accommodate Obama.
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Reply

Susan September 16, 2013 at 4:18 pm

Then you missed the part where he said his source for that statement was wrong. Turns out it is Yellen who is likely to keep pumping. It was Larry Summers who wanted to stop it. Makes me wonder if Summers was made an offer he couldn’t refuse. I have no doubt this regime has a portfolio on every feeder at the public trough. No big ol’ stacks of FBI files like Clinton, but a NSA database right at their fingertips.

Exactly, you don’t get a job on the O-Team unless you pinkie-swear to help destroy this country.

One thing for sure, Summers has a basket full of dirty laundry. Always wondered if he had the foresight to check the academic records of the Junior Senator from Illinois before he was forced to resign from Harvard in 2006.

The dead shooter is named Aaron Lexis.

They’ve cleared the white man, and are still looking for the African-American man.

Julie Brueckheimer September 16, 2013 at 3:41 pm

No, Fox said that witnesses described the deceased shooter as a 34 year old tall African-American. They are the only site giving a physical description. BTW, his last name is Alexis and he recently went to work at the Navy Yard as a civilian contractor.

Obama condemns cowardly act. Check off box and head on out to the party tonight. The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves, meanwhile, are postponing their game until tomorrow.
