Thank you Mr. President

for being the grown up in a roomful of whiny toddler babies in suits

How far?

It's amazing that there's still more room for them to go. Everytime they reach the bottom of the barrel, they find some way to go even lower. Of course, you know it's bad when kooks like Glenn Beck, yeah GLENN PSYCHOTIC INSANE BECK, are getting death threats from some of his extremist wingnut listeners for being slightly less insane than them.

Exactly

If only there was a body of people in this country whose job it was to debate matters of great national import and come together to figure out a solution to the big problems of the day.....................

So that he can stand astride a pile of immigrants with a bullhorn

and issue a stirring call to action to do.............something?



I seriously have no idea what the wingnuts expect him to accomplish by going down there. Another day, more Obama bashing. zzzzzzzzzzzzz......

They don't want to fix.......ANYTHING

because it' more fun and satisfying for them (and their "base") to complain about how everything is President Obama's fault and that he's "not doing anything" about it even though there is only so much he can do about it by himself and he's getting no help whatsoever from Congress because of Republican obstructionism of, well, everything. Hell, if they focused on trying to fix anything, then they might actually have to DO something for their (not) hard-earned paycheck and bennies. Congressional Republicans are the TRUE government "welfare queens" and "takers". They are like a bunch of lazy slackers whom don't show up for work and still expect to get paid or if they do show up, they just goof around- and still expect to get paid. Remember how upset they were when Nancy Pelosi was cracking the whip and expecting them to work longer hours and more days when she was ruthlessly cracking the whip in the House?

This "lawsuit" seems like it is shaping up to be "impeachment-lite"

Everything leading up to the vote to authorize the "lawsuit" seems like it will be a quasi-impeachment forum for the Republicans to basically fling more poo at the President without really actually doing anything- creating the "aura" of scandal and abusive behavior. Anybody want to take bets on the kind of "experts" whom will be called to testify and what they will say?

He *may* get back to you with some kind of answer

or, then again, maybe he won't. Republicans have been allowed to basically move beyond having to substantiate their claims. Baseless innuendo from them is really all they need and are expected to provide.

Because President Obama is the grown up President

and Perry and other Republicans are petulant, temper-tantrum-throwing little children that he needs to set an example for. Don't understand why some people don't get this about President Obama. He doesn't meet with them because he likes them or the way they think (and I don't really think that he thinks that he is able to work with them- though I think he would if he thought that they might be willing) but he meets with them because he's the President and he is SUPPOSED to meet with EVERYBODY and show them respect- even if they're jerks or Republicans (or both) and even if they don't deserve the respect he gives them.

Hillary will soon be getting that much coveted "most liberal Dem" status from the right

She seems to be a little more of an interventionist than PBO but she does not strike me as an insane Bush/Cheney neocon either.
