    I wouldn't be surprise if these people were not planted as well. Think about it. Would you come and see somebody speak if you were tired and frustrated with them? Trust me, I know my people. If we are the slightest not interested, we are not going. I wouldn't be surprise if this was planned to get TV coverage.

    They could be late arrivals, stretching their legs, going to the bathroom, getting a beer, going back to their seats. But you can make a video say just about anything you want it to say.

    Yup, it's election season.

    A dozen people idling at the far back of the auditorium = crowd running away from Obama.

    No, I wouldn't.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Exactly !

    It makes no sense for someone to be excited about the President speaking and then go sour on him during the speech.

Then the President, instead of adopting his own commissions plan as a starting point or a touchstone for negotiations, instead started his reelection campaign with an ugly class-warfare attack.

    However, it was the Democrats who declared Simpson-Bowles "DOA"

    Pelosi, political left rip proposal from Debt Commission

    If he didn't work with republicans, what was Boehner talking about when he said that he got 99% of what he wanted?
    He was trying to assuage his base. However, if you are scoring "the government didn't shut down" as "people working together", then the GOP gets just as much credit as the Democrats do for that incredibly short bar.

    Obama caved into GOP Debt Ceiling demands on the first time around, breaking his pledge to end the Bush tax cuts. The GOP try it a second time and it blew up in GOP face. I don't care what side is President, The debt ceiling should not be use as a political weapon.
    at worst it forces us to close down the non-critical functions of the government for a while. US Debt is always paid, regardless.

    Also, if he wasn't trying to work with republicans, how did we end up with Romneycare instead of a single payer system?
    Because Democrats couldn't pass a single-payer system. It didn't have enough support from the Democrats who were voting on the measures. Republicans weren't brought into the negotiations and had no input into Obamacare. It would have been ridiculously easy to put in some language that would have peeled off one of the moderates in the Senate - a Snow or some such. But Democrats didn't want to do that, and so they pushed the most-left program they could possibly get past the yardline. Failing to convince Joe Lieberman et. al. to support a public option does not count as "reaching out to Republicans".

    Most democrats didn't like the ACA. but Obama, Reid, and Poloeski worked hard to get them to vote on it. What was amusing/frustrating is that the law was made pretty toothless to satisfy demands from the GOP, and then after they got what they wanted, they voted against it anyway.
    where? Where did they ever change the law due to demands by the GOP? The ACA was negotiated 100% between Democrats and passed by Democrats.


    Man, is this what you people really tell yourselves?

    You saw what you wanted to see and ignored what the reporter reported

    The video doesn't support your position.
