Obama lampoons GOP convention, calls it throwback to era of black-and-white TV; no new ideas

Sep 1, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

President Barack Obama lampooned the just-completed Republican National Convention as better-suited to an era of black-and-white TV and " trickle-down, you're on your own" economics Saturday, and declared that Mitt Romney "did not offer a single new idea" to fix the economy.

No, actually the general public is just not too smart. They listen to the DNC talking points, never fact check and just blindly repeat what they hear. See, if the actually were paying attention, did a fact check or two, they would see that the obstruction is all on the part of democrats and Harry Reid in particular. The republicans have sent over 30 jobs bills and 3 budgets to the Senate, and they sit in a drawer in Reid's office, never to see the light of day. This is because a few years ago the plan was made for Obama to run AGAINST congress, all congress R and D, and in order to do this, congress had to look like it was at a standstill. Since even when Obama had the deck stacked in his favor, he couldn't get a budget passed, Reid just stopped presenting a budget for votes and then stopped presenting anything the newly changed to republican House sent over, all to give the appearance of a "Do Nothing Congress", just as they intended, people like you bought it. It really is pitiful how gullible some people are, you included.

Can't argue with facts. Every poll including Fox News, shows Congress with the lowest approval rating. This is the same congress that was voted in 2010 to do something, to change things, to make jobs. They do nothing but complain about Obama, and make sure he's unable to do anything. This is not about criticizing Obama, plenty of people criticize him, just google Eastwooding. This is about reality. The president's approval rating is higher than congress. People know where the problem lies.

No, the strange CA voters voted him in, the rest of the country thinks it must be something in the water. After all they just recently voted back in Moonbeam so it obviously a group dementia shared by all those drinking the cloudy water of CA.

Jenny, I understand you are one of the lemmings, granted the POLLS say this that and the other thing. Who do you think is LISTENING to the DNC talking points, over and over and over and over? Why do you think most THINKING people don't answer the phone when it shows a pollster is calling? See, it's mostly the brain dead lemmings with lots of time on their hands who gleefully jump to answer the phone, waste half an hour answering "Somewhat, A lot, A little, No and Yes" to inane questions posed to get the required response. The rest of us are busy, have jobs and things to do, also, I suspect that a little zip code selection is in play, in all my years in this zipcode, one of the very wealthiest in DE, I have had to not answer the phone to a poll only once. I suspect that a less wealthy zipcode gets lots of calls and lots of response. So, once again you are incorrect in your assumptions. It's only a poll Jenny, it's not written in stone. So, I reiterate, the DNC talking points are absorbed by the brain dead lemmings, repeated by the lemmings and when polled, they react like the lemmings they have been programed to be. They say sure, it's congress that is standing in the way, after all the DNC said so. Pitiful, sort of like the poor souls who think if it's on the internet it must be true. FACTS, Jenny, check out the FACTS and you will see that you have been played like a fine violin.

The house has refused to bring the jobs bill to the floor. They know damn well if the jobs bill were passed, Obama would win, and would rather castrate the working, or want to be working, for their own ideology.

Too bad the Republicans only got one half Congrss, the half that has passed a budget, not the half that unanimously voted down the Obama budget and failed to pass one of their own for four years.

Reagan had to work with a democrat controlled Congress as did Bush the elder and GW. Clinton had to work with a Republican Congress. Most presidents don't have the luxury of both houses. Are you saying Obama lacks the skills of George Bush? Face it, when it comes to negotiating a budget, Obama was too nuts for his own Senate.

It's more than 15 and that's just the job's bills, it doesn't include all the other ones that are sitting in Harry Reid's desk, never to see the light of day. SOMEONE had to be sure to make the case for Obama that this was a "Do Nothing" congress. Dems. pull this little trick out of the bag every now and then, especially when they have nothing positive to run on. Jenny is just the result of poor education, poor cognitive skills and poor investigative skills and of course the lack of any questioning of the mantra presented by the DNC.

As for your opinion, you're just stuck on stupid and apt to throw a tantrum if things don't go your way much like mcp...November may be a very difficult month for you both, scooter.
Much as I like Bill Maher, this is not the first time I have disagreed with him. The fact is, JohnnyMop, that most viewers, including most Republicans, thought Eastwood made a fool of himself. Some even went as far as saying they would never attend another Eastwood movie.

And suddenly Bill Maher is your mentor? Change your screen name to "Hypocrite".

Glad you're laughing, unfortunately, the DIRECTOR of Schindler's List was not Spielberg. But, we really don't expect facts and sense and rationality from the left. You would do better to just wait for the DNC talking points and then repeat them, at least you would be babbling in a unified way, wrong, but you would have the illusion of numbers to back your little "Facts" up. Well, how about that, I am now ROTFLMAO! See, you ARE good for something after all, comic relief.

You should have seen the writer/producer of that BS movie ripped to shreds by Bill Maher - funny!!!!!

An India born lying douche bag - just like you. No wonder you promote the film - the guy admitted point blank on Real Time he never met nor spoke to the president!

Do you know that same writer/director also called the terrorists who bombed the Twin Towers "brave"? Time for proof I see;

"On Real Time, Maher read a portion of the episode's transcript, which showed his controversial comments came after DíSouza first called the 9/11 hijackers brave.

Maher said he was simply agreeing with DíSouza about the hijackers."


http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/2016-ob...

"Dinesh D'Souza. He wrote the book for the lying, hate-filled movie attacking Our President.
This NUT has never talked to our President, yet he writes in his heinous book that he "Knows him" and he "Knows what he thinks."
Right wing teaparty Republicans are going to this movie and making Dinesh D'Souza richer.
Do you know something else D'Souza is famous for? On the Bill Maher show, he said the 9/11 terrorists were Brave, they were warriors.
Congratulations Teabaggers - for going to this guy's movie and making this NUT richer!"

Uh....... the House doesn't bring bills to the floor of the Senate.

The House sends their bills to the Senate. Good Ol' Harry Reid decides what bills go up for a vote.
