Gees! Like letting the "fox" into the hen house! On the surface it looks proper, but the man-boy has an egregious track record.

For those of you in Elmira, that means that he can't be trusted.

The President cannot get enough support from the Democrats, even though they have the majority in both houses of Congress, so now he is trying to get support of the Republicans. He wants to blame the Republicans if he is not able to get his agenda approved. This is a poor strategy since the President's agenda does not have the support of the majority of the citizens. Blaming the past administration of Bush no longer works, so he is now blaming the current minority party.

That was some of the most entertaining television I've seem in a looong time. It's the feeling I got when I did something wrong and Dad came in my room to lecture me.

Very well done Mr. President. This was something the American people needed to see and witness. The obstructionist Republican Party can't hide behind FauxNews anymore. They were inept and not in your league.

Well, It's about time somebody quit kowtowing to repubs in office. He didn't get into a spat-the spat came to him! He's not going to roll over and put up with the bogus "concerns" of people trying to derail anything he does because it would KILL THEM if he succeeds and proves we don't need them anymore than a fish needs a bicycle.

I think she actually looked better as she's growing that wig out...I mean hair. Doesn't rapid blinking mean the suspect is lying? Or was it that the wind from hIS gREATNESS was blowing their eyelids back?

We’ve got to be careful about what we say about each other sometimes, because it boxes us in ways that makes it difficult for us to work together, because our constituents start believing us. They don’t know sometimes this is just politics what you guys -- or folks on my side do sometimes.
He really said that? HE REALLY SAID THAT LAST LINE?

I want to see what Pelosi's eyes looked like then. I bet she was pissed as hell.

I thought it was pretty clear what I said. Maybe it's because most of us Libs have graduated high school.

It's interesting that 1 man took on the Republican Politburo and walked out the door the victor. All the talking points from the right sure didn't hold up very well when confronted with logic and truth.

t's a shame that so many Democrats are so quick to fall in love with fairy tales and heroes. Words and actions are different things. If the Bush v. Gore debacle, the Bush years and this Presidency have taught me anything so far it's that, if you base your judgments on reality and results, the Democrats come up short... very, very short.

Democrats are quick to make excuses for their own failures and actions and rely on the never failing boogie man of the Republican party to blame for their troubles. Majority in the Senate? Check! Majority in the House? Check! Charismatic, great communicator, clear headed, grass roots supported Democratic President? Check! A commensurate performance in enacting Progressive policy? Fail! Reforming health care and the financial industry? Fail! Reinstatement of crucial banking and finance regulations? Fail! Investment in infrastructure and public works? Fail! Attacking NSA spying and the Military Commissions Act? Fail!

Surrounding himself with industry hacks and insiders? Check! Letting corporations write the health care bill? Check! Mismanagement of billions and billions of tax dollars given to business that failed to act responsibly? Check! Ending the majority vote for passage of legislation? Check!

Logic and what was that again?
