David Shuster: "Obama speech tonight more confrontational with GOP than previously thought..."

@DavidShuster: Obama speech tonight more confrontational with GOP than previously thought. He will blame sequester cuts + econ damage on them. #TAN

@DavidShuster: Now clear Obama sees previous bipartisan gestures as not getting him anywhere. Hardball politics in this speech. Dems will be pleased. #TAN

3. Well, the Republicans are guilty of that and much much more

No doubt they will squeal like greedy 1% PuppetMaster Pigs as the truth is spoken, and pay their core of overpaid chickenhawk propagandists - Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, etc. to attack attack attack America, as usual, and apply their 'talents' to SUCKER the Fox-Watching RepubliProles. As usual. They better hope their rank and file never wake up to how badly the Republicans Eeleete have SUCKERED them to voting against their own interests.

10. Hopefully they will be irrelevant soon

and we don't have to operate with them at all. Then we can just negotiate amongst ourselves.

18. Amen to that.

Like somebody somewhere once said, "Bring it ON!"

Come to think of it, I believe that was a quote from Abraham Lincoln.

16. Until we have a majority in congress this won't effect much either

The Republicans are in the scorched earth phase it won't matter what tenor Obama takes in his speech they will seek to obstruct until they are no longer able. The midterms.

19. With any luck, this will be laying the groundwork for those midterms.

Step 1 is to make the Pubbies highly unpopular among the electorate.

20. Truman

After Truman's election, the GOP then acted like the GOP today . . . No, No, No!! So . . . Harry got on the train. Truman took trains throughout the country, making stop after stop after stop. At each stop, he made a vintage Truman speech in which he laid into the Republicans.

There's a story . . . if it's not true, it should be . . . that at one stop someone in the crowd shouted "Give 'em hell, Harry!!" To which Truman replied: "I don't have to give 'em hell!! I just tell the truth and they think I'm giving 'em hell!!!"

I hope Obama has been studying Truman.

'YOU LIE!'

35. In hindsight, I didn't see much of what Shuster said we could expect.

I didn't see as much kissy face as i have in the past, but neither did I see anything near as much laying of blame as I'd liked to have seen.
