    Good to know there is NO bi-partisan conversations going on there either.

    why he wants to raise taxes on energy in the midst of our crisis?

    why he ESCALATED afghanistan?

    why he said "days, not weeks" in libya?

    why his 2012 budget which is real---unlike this stump speech he's on this week and will soon drop---actually raises borrowing 20% and is too cowardly even to mention the entitlements which his own bowles-simpson pointed to?

    why he's stumping this week instead of legislating, why he's not MOVING on the deficit reduction agenda he's presently townhalling?

    and when he intends to get started?

    while the slasher dithers, our big 3 social programs are facing collapse, if something isn't done today to fundamentally restructure them they will simply not be there for the next generation



    in the days after the shellacking that's what obama was saying:



    President Barack Obama On 60 Minutes Acknowledges He's Failed To Deliver His Message CBS New York

    typically in character, he dropped the dodge in a week

    americans have heard obama's reasons, in full and ad nauseum

    if you need to reserve judgement, by all means, it's your prerogative

    most mature americans, tho, are asking---where's the leadership?
    We can assume all we want... The fact is he is the president, and should explain his reasoning and defend it to the American people and we should listen without interruption. I prefer to live in reality and have honest, sound reasons to be angry about the president and his policies, as opposed to living in a bubble and putting my faith in conspiracy theories before giving him a real ****ing chance...

    Foreign leaders who want to do business with the US won't do it. It's the sort of thing you just don't do in the diplomacy game unless it is intended to send a specific message.

    I'm not saying that journalists shouldn't be allowed to disrespect the President. I think we should be allowed to disrespect our leaders all we want.

    What I'm saying is that when the President is taking the time out of his wall-to-wall schedule to speak to someone -- a reporter or anyone else -- he should expect them to respect the office even if they don't respect him personally. If they don't, he should simply move on to something else.

    In other words, it should be a social convention and nothing more, enforced by the President refusing to hang around when he is being disrespected and nothing more.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    With skin that thin it's no wonder 0bama has a "Shake and Bow" foreign policy.

    He has no idea what to do when his olive branch receives and middle finger in reply.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    Is being the president so special that we should respect him anymore than someone else? I think not, I would interrupt him everyday of the week. This sense of reverance and fear for politicians is a god complex and we should not live in fear of our leaders or think that we have to respect them anymore than anyone else. A great man deserves respect, obama has yet to gain that rank.
