Have you no shame, sir?

In what is sure to go down in history as one of the most preposterous, inflammatory speeches of all time, President Obama (Gad, I'll be happy when I can stop writing that!) essentially charged Rep. Paul Ryan and his Republican colleagues with being berserkers drooling over the prospect of tossing infants back and forth on the tips of their spears. The speech at least served to prompt this wonderful line from Ryan: "[Obama's] basically a pyromaniac in a field of strawmen."

Obama is starting to realize -- however dimly! -- that he is sliding downhill, and is fast becoming irrelevant. His empty rhetoric, in spite of all the posturing by his deluded leftie supporters, is falling flatter each day.

His response? Throw a tantrum. Deny responsibility. Do anything but accept the responsibility.

The major problem is that this clown is still in office, still has the allegiance of many Congresscritters, and is still taken seriously by those same deluded leftie supporters....not to mention the the low information voters (there's an overlap of the two, not necessary a complete match).

Obama can do a LOT of damage before leaving office, even if that's in 2012. UNLESS Congress wakes up, and shuts his narcissistic driven agenda down. Now.

And of that, I don't have a lot of hope.

That speech would have received a standing ovation at the World Socialist International Convention.

Unpaid for tax cuts translates into all you money belong to us. He is bringing that old standard tax form joke to life.
Line 1:How much did you make
Line 2:Send it in.

A clarion call to, and a justification of central planning.

A truly scary speech. And this is being taught every single day in the public school system and universities. Just think what we would be looking at today if he had been able to consolidate his gains in the 2010 election.

That interview with Paul Ryan should be mandatory listening for America. Obama isn't interested in fixing the economy. He's swinging right into campaign mode, trying to fire up his base with his usual hopeychangey shtick, and he's too damn dumb to realize his base is also paying $4/gal at the pump and trying to put increasingly expensive food on the table, just like everybody else. November 2012 can't come fast enough.

Uh hunh. One thing leaders don't do is give speeches blaming all their problems on everybody else.

I think I'm not going to refer to him as "leader" of the country. Titty baby in chief will be sufficient.

Titty baby in chief it is!

"Titty baby in chief" -- heh!

Other names heard:

-> President Present

-> The Figurehead

-> President Zero

But "Titty baby in chief" is the best!
