2. Obama delivered the ant line to great applause
MSNBC

Mark Murray writes: The White House has released excerpts of President Obama's upcoming speech today in Racine, WI, to signal that he will use his remarks to criticize the Republicans on the economy -- and in particular House Minority Leader John Boehner (though not by name).

...

(J)ust yesterday, I was stunned to hear the leader of the Republicans in the House say that financial reform was like using a nuclear weapon to target an ant. Thats right. He compared the financial crisis to an ant. The same financial crisis that led to the loss of nearly eight million jobs. The same crisis that cost people their homes and their lives savings.

Well if the Republican leader is that out of touch with the struggles facing the American people, he should come here to Racine and ask people if they think the financial crisis was an ant. He should ask the men and women whove been out of work for months at a time. He should ask the Americans who send me letters every night that talk about how theyre barely hanging on.

These Americans dont believe the financial crisis was an ant. They know that its what led to the worst recession since the Great Depression. And they expect their leaders in Washington to do whatever it takes to make sure a crisis like this never happens again. The Republican leader might want to maintain a status quo on Wall Street. But we want to move America forward.

Boehner spokesman Michael Steel emails this response: The president should be focused on solving the problems of the American people stopping the leaking oil and cleaning up the Gulf, scrapping his job-killing agenda, repealing and replacing ObamaCare instead of the House Republican Leaders choice of metaphors. It's clear Boehner was not minimizing the crisis America faced - he was pointing out that Washington Democrats have produced a bill that will actually kill more jobs and make the situation worse.

6. Can't Find This Being Telecast On CSpan, CNN or MSNBC.....
where can I watch this?

Seems when the President hits back at the Repugs - we never get to see it telecast in its entirety. MSM sucks.

9. They WERE following it on MSNBC, but cut away. I don't know if it's online. But
if you're interested, Lindsey Graham is doing another dance with Kagan on CSpan3 -- pretty interesting.

11. Sorry I missed it.



Even though it's common knowledge that Boner is a putz it's still good to get a laugh at his expense now and then.

13. Requesting action, not rhetoric.
Would like to see more of us on DU pushing for the administration to follow through on campaign promises, instead of eagerly awaiting "zingers" in some speech.
