I thought the republican's points were well thought out and presented well.

I also thought Obama made his rebuttals and points equally well.

I also think (hope) that both sides of the congressional isle came away with at least this:

That for the sake of the country, it would behove both sides to drop the partisan bickering in the name of party loyalty, and work for honest, constructive compromise.

I can't think of another president who would have stood in the face of such unprecedented opposition.

They were well founded questions and sincere questions that were asked of him. His answers were equally sincere.

I'll say this. Obama stood at the podium knowing full well, that he'd be thrown well rehearsed questions designed to derail, distract and embarrass him.

But he did it anyway, and invited the press full access and even allowed tapping..which many in his party begged him not to do.

Win or lose..I give the guy an "A" for even doing it. I give him an A + for how he handled it.

In my business.. I'd have been weak in the knees standing up there.

LOL, what a misleading headline…“Exchange barbs, Ideas”? President Obama schooled the GOP; he walked into their den and came out with their heads, LOL.

It was 140 to 1, and they got their ass kicked. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews did a 2 hour special on the event and they broke it down question by question; response by response… and it was a thing of beauty.
They even showed how Fox News broke off their live coverage of it as soon as they realized the President was destroying them.

I tried to tell all of those giddy right-wingers that the Massachusetts election would be the best thing that could have happen for this President and the Democratic Party. What happened today to the GOP was nothing short of a massacre; President Obama put his pure brilliants and command of the facts and issues on display for all to see. I love it, LOL.

What a laugher,....the ONLY reason Obama is talking at ALL to the GOP is because of Scott Brown's victory.
All Obumbler wants to do is lecture everybody when in reality it's he who doesn't have a clue.
Obama lectures them to have more "civility", huh?
Who is this guy kidding? He's the guy who leads the other team,....you know the one with all the jackass bullies that negotiate behind closed and locked doors.
He's basically nothing more than a left wing elitist, snobby intellectual law professor. He's clueless about capitalism, economics, the military, domestic issues, budgeting, you name it.

OK..I see. I just now read the topic article.

Silly me..I only watched the telecast with my own eyes.

So much for cerebral dialog.

These public forums are just plain silly. How fatuous of me to think that we might actually have an intelligent discussion about a relevant topic without the irrelevant talking points to which you obviously align yourself to.

You should wait for Rush, Hannity, Coulter or Beck to tell you how to respond to a topic that you are otherwise incapable of doing.

Well when Fox News breaks away from it as soon as they see the GOP is getting their ass handed to them you can’t really blame these gullible right-wing fools; they aren’t being allowed to receive unfiltered information and process it for themselves.

Go cash your Acorn check, pal.

You and your disgusting crew of paid Obama operatives are no longer fooling ANYONE with your anti-American horseshit propaganda.

Agreed.
I thought for a moment that a meaningful discussion was possible regarding this "story".

Personally, I think Obama's performance was exemplary, considering what the right wing machine was poised to discredit and dismantle.

I supported Ron Paul for many of the same reasons that I voted for Ross Perot. I voted for Obama and the hope for change as much as I voted against McCain/Palin's obvious continuation of the Bush Doctrine that lead us to the brink of disaster that we find ourselves in today. I've been a registered independent for years, and I admit that lately my faith in the system fails. But the fact that Obama has the grit to stand up to the opposition to make his point (and make irrefutable sense doing so) is admirable.

Carter tried to do the same thing..and he got buried. Reagan did it, and although he sounded great doing it, buried the middle class in the process. With those two exceptions, I've never witnessed another president even try.

How funny. How do I know when Obama is lying? Answer: When he is talking.

Obama didn't massacre anyone. He took it on the chin. How easy you are fooled! You are fooled by the lies of Obama and his zombies, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews. Most Americans are as easily fooled. That is why you were one of the few that watch Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews. Catch Fox for the real story. LOL

Obama makes a lying tantrum taking azz out of himself again. He is goin' down faster than the Titanic. And he's taking all the democrats down with him. He has to get rid of those two chicken swingers, Rahm and Axlerod as they are obviously giving the Half azz Messiah some bad advise.
