I've not heard one concrete plan proposed, nor just how any lofty vague initiatives be paid.

This has simply been a lesson in how to read rhetoric from a teleprompter.

And speaking in a hushed tone doesn't make your statements any more sincere.

I loved when the Congress laughed at his comment, "the cuts will begin NEXT year."

lemme think... obama "responsibility" but not necessarily the "blame"?

Or did I miss something, anyone hear him accept blame for anything?

I thought not.

How's that work? If you're responsible for something and it doesn't get done, who else is to blame?

Oh wait... it was that damn brown guy up in mass. Other than that, it's full speed ahead with health care that no one wants as written.

Poor Barry. Guess next election cycle his campaign people are going to have to turn on all those nasty verifiers when people make credit card donations. Real names, real US addresses....some speech writer didn't think that one through.

You'll notice that Barry the Magnificent didn't talk about GITMO tonight. That place he was GOING TO CLOSE IN ONE YEAR.

Barry didn't talk about the KSM trail in New York. The one that Congress IS NOT GOING TO FUND.

Barry didn't talk about the diaper bomber, or the fact that HIS Attorney General had the bastard mirandized and then provided an attorney.

Oh, and I'll just bet the Iranians and North Koreans are shaking in their boots tonight. If they haven't already laughed their asses off.

Real-time response: only 39 comments (poor) on a Gravy (open thread) Post.

A *stress test* failure.

Jim Addison:

As a point of fact, even most of the deficit for 2008 was due to spending urged by and voted for by Obama and the Democratic Congress. But I don't fault him for blaming Bush for everything - it isn't as if he wants to take responsibility for his own performance.

Biggest outrages: calling for bipartisanship after governing in the most partisan manner of any Administration, ever - even FDR and LBJ dealt more with congressional opponents with their huge majorities - and claiming to have supported the protesters in Iran (he "supported" them right into the mullah's torture chambers). The SCOTUS lie showed him to be a tactless, arrogant hack, but we already knew that.

I can understand the gullibility and wishful thinking which led many people to support this completely unqualified buffoon in 2008, but anyone who still supports him has to be either dumb as a rock or just plain Marxist.

J a "and claiming to h... (Below threshold)

J a "and claiming to have supported the protesters in Iran (he "supported" them right into the mullah's torture chambers)."

Can't disagree with that, obama punted at the time of the iran election protests by saying he wouldn't "meddle" in the issue, "It is not productive, given the history of US-Iranian relations to be seen as meddling - the US president, meddling in Iranian elections," Mr Obama said.

Under the bus you go protesters, his negotiating options would be severely limited if he was seen supporting those that want freedom.
