One thing I've noticed about Obama's critics from either side. . .
. . .they cry like babies when he swings back. Think about the shit thrown at him, many of it just blatantly disrespectful bullshit meant to insult him. Yet when the President swings back, like he did yesterday, folks like Paul Ryan act like his standing up for himself, his party and his vision is some type of affront to decency.

2. Well don't you know he was getting uppity yesterday. There is a disrespectful undercurrent to
all the outrage and anger directed at our President. His very presence is an affront to the GOP.

3. He has a talent for driving opponents apeshit crazy
Andrew Sullivan compares him to the Roadrunner vs. the Wile E. Coyote of the week. I could see if I thought he was wrong about something how that tone he takes would be absolutely infuriating.

4. I'll stop criticizing him when his actions match his lofty rhetoric.
He's a wonderful orator, I'll give him that. And it's very pleasant to hear him say what we on the far left have been saying for years. But so far, he's spent a lot more time maintaining the status quo.

8. More campaign promises met than any president since politifact started keeping track
It terms of presidential promises, he is top notch.

5. Your headline doesn't fit what you wrote.
Is there a reason for that?

10. His swing was pathetic
All words but no tactical plans or actions. Sadly, I think Ryan's response was much better.

12. LOL. Even conservatives don't think that
I'm not surprised you couldn't follow through on your point.

14. Too damn funny
Ayn Ryan ran out of the meeting and started whining and you liked that response. It was the schoolyard equivalent of giving the loud new kid a wedgie in front of his girlfriend.

15. In what way, exactly?
Please describe in detail how Ryan's lame attempt to defend his stinking turd of a plan after people saw what it actually does was 'very much better'.


The only people that think so aren't even vaguely Democrats.


OBTW, only an idiot spells out his complete plan of action in minute detail in front of political adversaries.



Like Ryan did.
