Meet President Obama’s new economic message. Same as his old economic message.
You could be forgiven if you thought you had heard President Obama’s speech on the economy today before. Because you have. For most of the 2012 campaign. (Don’t trust us, read Obama’s 2012 acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.)
It’s really great to see a journalist from the Washington Post making such an astute observation. That’s why he makes the big bucks.
Too bad nobody noticed that Obama’s speeches never accomplish anything a little sooner.
Speaking of speeches—I didn’t watch Obama’s speech (working), but I’m reading that he spoke about “an ocean of tomorrows” and a “sky of tomorrows.”
What the hell is that all about?
“I have crossed oceans of time to find you.” – Dracula, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
It’s really hard to upstage Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins but Tom Waits succeeded. So did Sadie Frost.
LOL! Good one.
ROFL! Love the Dracula quote.
Robert Frost, “Prairie”:
“I tell you there is nothing in the world, only an ocean of tomorrows, a sky of tomorrows.”
So he stole it.
Whenever he talks about loving America or her people, he sounds flat and uninspired.
You,’ll have to forgive him. TOTUS hiccuped and got caught in a memory hole between Jobs #4 and Jobs #6. Ignore it.
This one was Jobs #19
I’ll never make it till end-of-term. Only have one toe left.
I’m guessing Hallmark is now writing his speeches.
Thanks for posting this!
Makes him sound a little crazy, no?
Indeed it does. He’s bamboozlin everybody , again. I really don’t think anybody’s listening to him anymore.
Nancy needs to drain her OWN swamp.
I’m a California man and I must confess I’m baffled too.
It is either blind ambition or she is liking the humiliation. Both suggest she has problems as he obviously does. I am not being flip when I say that both of them need psychiatrists for the sake of their child. This is bizarre.
I’m willing to go with loyalty to the father of her child… But she (being in the body politic) should be able to see the ‘optics’ (as everyone likes to say these days), do not look good for her or the Mr. after that press conference (I’m surprised she didn’t see that coming BEFORE the press conference).
Ant’ny spoke like it was all perfunctory, “nothing to see here anymore, I’ve already admitted all this, you have nothing to say on this subject, it’s time for me to talk to the voters”
I saw Ant’ny get confronted by a guy (Hispanic/Spanish?) dressed in a super hero costume, “Hey, why are you using my name, I’m Carlos Danger”
Ant’ny just kept walking by looking the other way…
Too rich for words… I’ll try to find the video.
A lot of us are saying the same thing. Serious mental issues at play here.
I’m not baffled, Klown. I’m pissed off. She’s selling the people of NY a bill of goods, in exchange for whatever benefits she gets from that marriage. It’s nearly as sleezy as her husband’s behavior.
They compare her to Hillary. IMHO for Hillary staying with Bill was a career builder. But for this woman? Yeah, I don’t get it. Maybe she’s so in love with him that she can’t help it? That’s also baffling.
Lotta co-dependency involved here. Sometimes the co-dependents confuse that with love.
That gives new meaning to “mom’s cooking in the kitchen”
Oh, you are a bad, bad Klown.
Is Obama now officially a joke? Can we make fun of him now without being called names? After every speech can we just say “That’s retarded, sirrrrrrr!” and change the subject? President Pivot will be schlepping around Martha’s Vineyard (with his horde of SS and slack jawed sycophants) in ugly too big tourist clothes licking on ice cream cones before we know it. The important question is should he wear white or black socks with his scandals.
You can still be called a racist, but the number of Obama supporters is spread pretty thin compared to the people who are now sick of Obama.
I think the racist stuff is pretty much over. It doesn’t really have power over most people anymore except in the media which fewer every year paying any attention . Two of my children were Obama supporters in 2008 much to my horror. Young, inexperienced and swept away by the bullshit. The eldest, a natural born cynic, saw him for what he was. These younger two voted for Romney in 2012 and loathe Obama now. All three have been extremely fortunate in this economy and know it. They see friends and contemporaries struggling and know that they would probably have been doing better economically without Obama policies. The loss of opportunity and time is catching up with even young people. It has all been a horrible, stupid, nasty waste.
How deep is the ocean?
How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky?
Obama’s speech writer must have been listening to old Billie Holiday records.
I’m amazed anyone still listens to his blather. Do they really expect him to be someone else at this point? I also read that he commented on how many days he has left in office for the second time this week…he’s just salivating at the thought of 24/7 golf, b-ball and sitting on cushy boards so he can live like the demonized 1%.
With hopes his charges of phony scandals will come back to bite him in his royal ass.
He can join up with the racial grievance industry and travel around stirring up racial tension and outbursts. Jackson and Sharpton are getting pretty old so the movement needs a new talker.
Awwww, this is sweet. Evil Republicans /sarc.
Oh great. Bring out your dead! http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Plague-Infected-Squirrel-Found-Near-Campgrounds-in-Angeles-National-Forest-216842911.html?dr
Completely OT my favorite musical is being made into a movie!!
I so hope Disney does it justice , I saw this on Broadway and it was wonderful!!
I love this musical! I’ve seen it a couple of times, but never on B’way. The music is wonderful and this cast sounds divine. I can’t wait!
Thanks so much for posting this.
The wait will be “Agony”
I wish they had cast Baransksi as the witch. She can sing, and she’s much better at being evil.
Think we will ever find out the truth about the whole Benghazi thing?
That sounds hopeful, with 1000 former special forces guys pushing for a special prosecutor I don’t see how Obama can just write them off as a phony scandal.
this is trey gowdy on Greta last night about the “phony scandals”
damn it Joe you were not supposed to get caught
and this bear walked into a bar
😆 😆 😆
Today’s latest Weiner Video:
well he is having a problem keeping it up
Dirty.com has released Weiner’s unpixelated weiner, I won’t post the link, but I’ll never eat kelbasa again…..ewwwww, yes I peeked, I denounce myself.
Kelbasa? I was thinking vienna sausage…..
He’s really brave flashing that little thing all over the place. I’d like to give him one of these:
Must’ve been the angle, or photoshopped 😉 Ahhh, Moonstruck, when I actually still liked Cher.
pelosi will not tell weiner to pull out
sometimes the headline should not be touched with a 10 foot pole
I hope he doesn’t drop out and gets soundly defeated. Of course with his arrogance he would probably be back next year.
some funny jokes about weiner
bonus for signing up people for food stamps. backtrack world
has the middle class caught on to the backtrack hustle yer?
this is a strange story. backtrack wanted yemeni reporter kept in jail
I have a problem with this
I used to go to firedoglake before backtrack
Don’t forget about the “would you like to register to vote?” question included in the Obamacare registration form. If only Planned Parenthood and ACORN people are allowed to enroll people it won’t be unbiased, and the Republicans have every right to do something about it.
I’ve given up on the Republicans since Romney lost 😉 Wimps. Obama should have been rode hard and put away wet by now with all his “phony” scandals.
Now that DOJ is going after Texas for their voter i.d. requirements, don’t you still need a photo i.d. to get a job in the ObamaCorps ?
I’ve given up on everybody. And I dread the 2016 installation.
talkin’ loud and sayin’ nothin’…..
Zimmerman juror says he got away with murder
Zimmerman is getting away with nothing. Martin’s death will haunt him for the rest of his life, and he has to hide from the haters for the rest of his life. Sounds like prison to me.
I really don’t understand the mindset of “I thought he was guilty but the law couldn’t prove it.” Of course the law couldn’t prove murder. All of the facts supported self-defense. At least she recognized that her bias wasn’t supported by law. But what do these people want… to make self-defense illegal?
Playing devil’s advocate here: Perhaps what she means is she believes that Zimmerman is probably guilty but that reasonable doubt still exists.
“Beyond a reasonable doubt” is a very high standard. Maybe she did her job correctly.
I agree. She did her job correctly. So why did she apologize? I don’t understand equating of self-defense with “getting away with murder.” Do these folks really think self-defense should be illegal… what about war… what about drones? IMO, the person getting away with murder is President Zero. But for some reason the Traybots can’t seem to muster up the compassion and concern for innocent brown children a half a world away.
It turns out ABC creatively edited the interview.
Well, that shouldn’t come as a surprise. (sigh)
A good article about the speech. 🙂
my Irish would be up and the lawsuit would be massive
this is one of the saddest things that backtrack has done to this country
Disgusting, and it started during the 2008 Dem Primary.
Some of us saw it coming.
