    she couldn't see coming the budget mess we're in?

    I'd have to go back and try to research what was on the docket or what national events were taking place between Oct 1 and Nov 3, 2010
    oh, please

    there were a lot of things, one of them WASN'T a budget

    they had all summer

    This thing called the filerbuster prevented a straight up or down vote on the matter [obamacare]
    yup, that's exactly what happened

    many americans remember how pelosi was prepared to DEEM the dumb thing just days before

    lbj and fdr were far too smart to force major social reform without broad opposition support

    they knew that to do so would severely set back their movements, they knew america

    in other words, congrats!

    obamacare!

    live with it

    Probably for the same reason politicians are affraid to say "entitlements"

    instead, obama goes to silicon valley to make another great speech, excellent speech

    the slasher will never commit his rhetoric to record, if he could he'd a done his 2011 budget, his 2012 wouldn't look the way it does, he wouldn't have fought so hard to protect 38 piddly billion and then strip all its effect thru sleight of hand and legerdemain (ap)

    LOL... I come from a different world. I treat everybody with respect unless they disrespect me or I decide they don't deserve my respect anymore. However, having no respect for somebody is different than brazenly treating them with disrespect. I have worked for many managers I had no respect for, but I personally never offended them or went out of my way to show them how I felt. I don't think everybody has to earn my respect...

    BTW... I think being the president is pretty damn special. Not many people can say they are president or ever were. Since you're so picky and choosy about whom you give and show respect, may I ask, the the hell you are and why should anybody respect you?

    Look, I detest Barack Obama....but he was not wrong on this.

    I listened to the interview, the Reporter wasn an Ass...and YES, the Office deserves more respect than the "man" who holds it.

    Obama is in campaign mode and as such, is agreeing to interviews he didnít make time for in the past. Obama is trying to get his message out so he is doing interviews.

    It is rather naive to think that the president should be allowed to use the media for his political campaign without expecting some tough interviews. If he is so thinned skinned or arrogant that he canít handle some tough questions, he should limit his interviews to MSNBC where they will throw his talking points out there as softball talking points so he can always bat 1.000.

    Was he being interviewed on "the View"? If a reporter doesn't have enough respect for the man, or the office, to not interrupt the answers, the reporter should be fired immediately.
    Which is what most conservatives would be saying if it was President McCain being interviewed.....

    I was under the impression you thought the media was all left leaning and went out of its way to pander to Obama
