Not our "explainer"

While GWB prided on explaining himself as "the decider" (see note), BO does NOT make a very good "explainer". I continuously find myself trying to second (or third?) guess what the WH and Dem's strategy even is, and not just during this last fiasco, but ever since his taking office. When GWB was in office I remember seeing either him or his press secretaries quite often explaining the Bush "strategy" (at least the Faux News version). On the other hand, I didn't even know Jay Carney WAS the current press secretary until a recent press conference. &nbs

Here's what I don't get about the Super Congress.

If it is comprised of 6 Republicans and 6 Democrats to me that seems like a recipe for deadlock. To get a majority one person has to be a traitor to their party. Who is going to want to be seen in that light?

You "Boners" Can Get Back to Football and Your Important Video Games and Leave the Serious Government Stuff to US

UNBELIEVABLE!We've shredded the constitution and created a new 'branch of government' with unlimited power! You might say, the Speaker blew a major wad in the face of the "no boner crowd" with this Bill - And "wait til you's people" see which of "your" DemocRats we select for the "Special Congress"! What a hoot!

Is FAA defunding a Tea Party jobs bill?

I guess the Tea Party members come from the lower 25% of our population who didn't graduate High School? The inability for them to understand that to sacrafice the jobs of 54,000 American workers because they don't like a small part of the bill shows why they would of destroyed the U.S. credit rating because they wanted to cut Grand Ma's medicare and lower her social security. Tea baggers are Christians NOT. Like one of the blue collar comedians states (they would know because of there audiences) "you can't fix stupid".

Broken Health Care

As a Priest, I took someone to a Psychiatric ward near my town tonight because he was hearing voices that were telling him to kill himself and also harm others. When on the proper levels of medication, this is a very good man. However, tonight he was in great psychiatric distress. When I left him in the care of a nurse who told me he has now been admitted into the hospital under P.C.

Inspection- Slightly Less Crazy

Damn, we need run off voting.

Crossing the finish line the other evening it was the crazy party by more than a nose, followed up by the slightly less crazy party. Or would you prefer the party that often refers to themselves as "progressive" behind with the fascists in the lead?

The fascists are the true revolutionaries: willing to be traitors; destroy the village... and the nation... to save it. A "progressive" doesn't settle for a mild version of a very, very bad idea.

What's so damn bad about it?

Fast And Furious Scandal

Just because the Fast & Furious gunrunning scandal is slowly exploding in Obama’s face as the public finds out about it is no reason the operation can’t be used to advance its original purpose — creating propaganda to undermine our priceless Second Amendment rights.

We've been in a Coma since Gore 2000

Keith Olbermann once again you say what I'm feeling Protest to the streets! Dems have been in a coma since Al gore in 2000.

Obama's GOP Legacy??

Obama is obsessed with Republicans' approval like an abused pet, but will he ever be anything more to them than "That One Black President?"

Pres. Obama's message

The message so prominent in the president Obama campaign for his election has to be attributed to Marshall Ganz. In reference to an article in the nation February 21, 2011 by Sasha Baranski. The man behind the message.

WTF?????

For the very first time since listening and watching Thom since 2005, I am really disappointed. He stated that the reason Obama rolled over on the debt deal was because the outcry from citizens wasn't enough. Come on!!!!! Thom himself quoted several nationwide polls that CLEARLY showed more than 85% of citizens demanded that the rich and corporations start paying their fair share!!!!! There were demonstrations and rallies all over the country (they weren't covered by MSM of course -- in fact CNN ran YEAR OLD FOOTAGE OF TEA PARTY RALLIES). The White H

TARP Blame

I was a bit disappointed that when you correctly stated that the TARP was passed under Bush and not Obama and yet you conveniently failed to mention it was passed almost exclusively by the Democrats in Congress! Did Obama vote for it?
