      • WH Gov said 1:30, yet he was in progress at 1:02. Don’t know how much I missed, waiting for the site to refresh.

        Just learned something new: “Many Republicans ran for office two years ago promising to shut down the government. And now they’re doing it.”

        Really?

    • Anybody know who the lonely white guy was in the “Human Props Corpse”? Odd man out, as Obama stacked his crew with women and minorities, and this guy looked to be dressed for maintenance work, rather than a prime time spot behind POTUS. Any chance he’s a staff worker who made for a convenient blend?

  1. I predict BO will inveigh with the following rhetoric: “folks!” “I say to you…” “America!” “WE must…” “be a part of the conversation”… Oh, look, I’m not the only one to notice a recurring theme of pandering, obsequious, appealing through thoroughly calculated emotional propaganda.

    A pretty robot would be a better president. Is the job REALLY THAT DIFFICULT??? :-/

    And I know that keeping a website running is not that difficult, yet healthcare.gov has been one fail after another today. The latest response, after yet another 15 minute wait “while we prepare a login session for you”:

    –> The System is down at the moment.
    We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Please try again later. <–

    Hurry up and wait in the bread line. The Government will provide your loaf.

  3. Late to his own propaganda party, I see. What, not enough footmen to cajole him into position behind the podium and turn on the camera?

    • That is just great! This is what we must do. I can just picture all these guys in their late eighties and early nineties taking a building over. Love it.

      • I just saw that God Bless the Greatest Generation as they stormed
        the beaches in Europe no tinpot dictator will keep our guys out of
        what allows that ingrate in the WH to hold office. I’d like to think if we’d been there we would have pushed them right on in good always triumphs over evil.

    • I was incensed – outraged – when I heard about the barricading. The petty ass POS who rents the WH spits on the military. Once again this man demagogues from the stump on the graves of good Americans. GOOD ON THE VETS.

  4. Attack, attack and attack more. It is THEIR fault. He and his self-righteousness supporters believe that they are the only ones who know what they are doing. I am sick of it all.

  5. We are drunk already because we are playing the Obama drinking game. For every lie we drinkkg, Is thiss speeech goin on mush longer? I can’t drink anymo.

  6. “Visit healthcare.gov”…ha-ha-ha.

    If a corporate website worked like this, the CEO would be in the war room figuring out what to do….not making speeches saying how great it was.

    The web site is absolute grabage. I spent two hours just trying to sign up. According to the phone line, the fix time is “tbd”.

    What a surprise, Obama, lots of people are visiting the web page.

  7. What did he just say? You can call the hotline today and get answers in 150 different languages??? Who are we insuring – the UN? And who is paying for the interpreters? Do the navigators speak 150 different languages? This is not a good sign.

  8. He just said that in the next couple of hours they will have more “folks” to help the demand of the millions who are trying to get through to http://www.healthcare.gov. I just tried the 800 number he gave and the number reverts back to a dial tone. I guess Obama was never a Boy Scout – I guess he doesn’t know the meaning of “be prepared”!

  9. As he repeats a certain segment of the Republican Party again perhaps
    he like to call them what his paid media do ‘teabaggers’. Then go and explain to his daughters what that is as I had to tell my 90 year old mother. Idiot.

  10. Obama says raising the debt limit doesn’t increase debt. Then why must it be raised in order to pay bills? Why can’t bills be paid under the current debt limit if it doesn’t increase debt? I don’t care for his fuzzy math.

  11. OT after watching the Vets storm their Memorial I looked and KS has a flight leaving Oct 9th. So I made a donation so this might be a good thing for us to do so join me if you like to your own states Honor Flight. Hope
    that’s OK.
