The self absortion of Democrats knows no bounds.
.....
Opposition is supposed to lay down and die. As the Republicans found out with the Democrats, it won't happen. Democrat values are not everyone else's values.
.....
As for tired and predictable, isn't that the platform Obama ran on?

That Republicans listen to their lies,(and some actually believe them, and parrot them;) prevent GOP members from supporting their country; putting bankrupt and false philosophy ahead of patriotism and decency.
Follow Limbaugh, or follow the flag.
Limbuagh, Hannity and others quote commonly available sources of information and news.
.....
If you do not like what you hear, maybe you need to close down the Washington Post amd MSNBC.

Obama is just your typical leftist Democrat playing the same con game Democrats have played for decades, trying to silence dissent. Obama is a bit slicker about it, but its the same old liberal lies repackaged in Obama pretty wrappings.

The only free speech Obama and his Democrats believe in is speech that agrees with their extremist Democrat ideology.

Obama's TALK of unity and bipartisanship is just that. Cheap talk.

A better idea would be to dump Obama and not listen to his egotistical tripe for 4 years.

If you want to believe Obama's lies, then go for it, its supposedly a free country...at least for now.

I do care, Mr. Bill.
I am not into blindly following clever words.
I see no "change" in the Democrat Party, nor its leader, Obama. Its more of the same.
Where is the "change" when Obama has chosen a Democrat dinasour, Joe Biden who has fed at the public trough for decades?
Where is the "change" in all of Obama's Clinton retreads, many whom have also been around for decades? Its more of the same ENTRENCHED liberal Democrat theology.

No new blood. No new ideas. Just new packaging.

There can be no true "hope" when its the same old crew that hasn't "changed" for decades.

It's been at least a decade since I listened to Rush, but after seeing Obama tell people they shouldn't listen to him, I'm going to turn Rush back on!

Good for Obama. This will cause the people of the country to get very clear about why they really want to listen to - and participate in - sustained flows of exaggerations, falsehoods, claims meant only to inflame listeners to some level of zombie-like state of hate. What good do the OReilly's, Hannity's, Limbaugh's do other than attempt to move disagreement to unflinching levels of bitterness? And why all the screaming and yelling. They remind me of school-yard children who have no other means of asserting themselves.

The truth is that this country is in a horrific mess and anyone who doesn't believe this is certifiably delusional. Given that, we all choose how to go forward. We can either seek ways to help improve the lot of ourselves, our neighbors, our communities; or, we can run around with spittle foaming from our mouths as we try to blame someone else for the problems we face.

Listening to the radio or watching a TV broadcast is a simple choice we make. Leaders and others in positions of real responsibility should be "listening" to voices dedicated to finding real solutions to real issues. And these solutions will only come from careful, reasoned discussion and debate from educated, experienced people with the good of the nation at heart.

There will be no bi-partisan approach, look at the executive orders obama just signed for some clues.

1. Close Gitmo.
2. Use Taxpayer money to fund abortions overseas.
3. No enhanced interrogation techniques, even if there is an imminent threat of a massive attack on the U.S.

In other words bi-partisan approach means go along with me and we'll get along.

When Obama failed to take the Constitutional Oath on the 20th there was a do over. This time the Constitutional Oath was taken absent the Bible. How do you "forget" to take the oath for President of the United States without swearing on a Bible?
