They expect Democrats to govern. They don't expect the same of Republicans.

And as long as Americans continue to do that, we lose.

63. Sorry he's not entertaining enough for you

But governing—and especially trying to govern in a very divided country, with a divided Congress, in challenging times—is serious business.

Thoughtful and informed responses may be boring to you and others, but it sure beats the "heh hehs" and nicknaming of the former (p)resident. And it sure beats the chest-beating that candidates like to do to grab your attention. We all know that Obama is fully capable of doing inspirational. He's the president though now, not on the campaign trail, and serious is necessary. These are serious times. In the proper environment, he's also great at entertaining. Press conferences aren't stand-up routines.

America needs to grow up and pay attention. Government is not entertainment.

88. It has nothing to do with entertainment...

it'as inspiration I'm talking about.

For 6 years now he's been a good speaker, but never roused the people. Lincoln, TR, FDR, JFK and Reagan gave inspirational speeches in times more troubled than these and with a population just as divided as now. Or more so.

The news and various government offices report the facts. Par of the President's job is presenting the essence of those facts to inspire us toward something.

You want to call it a sales job? OK, it's a sales job, but without sales, nothing would be sold.

Funny how when Obama is on the ballot, and actually campaigning, we have better nights, tgan when we (not us, but some folks...) hate on him all day every day, we end up getting our asses kicked. Seems to me, people like him better just fine when he's running. And that when he's running we get record turnout. Just something I noticed. Seems easier to win with him than without him in some ways.

49. I have not been able to place his accent, but that may be because I don't know Illinois.

He was raised in Hawai'i, which has its own distinct regional accent, but so was I, and my mother (from Colorado originally) made absolutely sure we spoke standard English.

Obama went to college in California and elsewhere on the Mainland. He made a choice when he left the Islands. So Hawai'i may live in his heart, but there's no local accent whatsoever. It's just that I can't place what it is -- and that may be the point.

He's had six years to stand up for his policies and programs and act like the leader of his party and he hasn't done it yet.

Why should I listen to more bullshit about working across the aisle and bipartisanship?

Never thought I'd want to see LBJ back in office but that's what we need now. Not Professor Obama, not slimy bill Clinton, but a Dem with good policies and the cojones to push them through.

Hell, Obama can't even sell his own party on his program.

And he's said a lot of inspiring words on occasion.

But the follow through has been sadly lacking, so why should things be any different now?

I'm not pissed, just disappointed.

62. I believe anything I could possibly say to you might be met with my

being accused of something disparaging.

whatever.


This still factually happened: http://jeff61b.hubpages.com/hub/14-Facts-About-The-Obama-Presidency-That-Most-People-Dont-Knowhttp://jeff61b.hubpages.com/hub/14-Facts-About-The-Obama-Presidency-That-Most-People-Dont-Know

Sorry that politicking isn't perfect. This happened under this president. Go ahead and don't listen. I do not care about what you think. I care about where we go from here while this man is still President. I care about that.

55. Then don't listen.

It's as simple as that. Right now, I don't want to hear about bipartisanship either.

LBJ? In spite of the great things he was able to accomplish, he decided not to run for re-election in 1968. He didn't have his party's support. You know, a little disaster of his called Vietnam.

58. Hard to sell a party on anything when

 

They stick their fingers in their ears and say I am not listening till i get my pony.

The man hasn't stopped trying to sell the public and his party on his agenda since he got into office. You are living proof of the ability to completely ignore everything he has been saying for years now while trying to pretend he has'nt been saying it.

Once again he is up on the podium laying out his agenda and once again here you are refusing to listen while complaining he doesnt ever lay out his agenda. It would be completely hilarious if it wasn't so mind numbingly stupid.

Working with Republicans is akin to national suicide. I hope he's not preparing us for Keystone and chained CPI

If only the candidates had not run from him.

Obama is only talking about areas of “overlap,” not acquiescence. This is not a man who sounds repudiated in the least…

But here's a comment from Chris Hayes "Christopher Hayes ‏@chrislhayes · 2m2 minutes ago
On the whole, this is a pretty uncowed President.

67. As usual some of the questions have been ridiculous. Why can't you be more like Clinton?


Why didn't the Democrats want to be seen with you?
Your a lame duck.


Oh give me a break. He handled it well. I just wish he would've loosened up a little.

Obama is still our President and he still won with an overwhelming majority inspite of your Koch purchased Senate and Congressional seats.
Get over yourselves!

68. When he was done with his initial statement I Said to myself:

here comes the idiocracy portion of the show.

Aside from the first and second questions, I was not disappointed.

Reality might say something else. Politics is not always what it seems on the surface.

87. That is what I took from this presser.

I have listened to him very very carefully for the past 6 yeas of his presidency, and add 2 more years to that, 8 years in total.

(maybe more… )

I liked what he said and I saw that he was not a real happy camper. I don't think he is going to take this garbage much longer.

Just in the past hour or so Mitch McConnell took umbrage to what he said. I can't find a link now, I heard it on a CBS news Radio report in the truck. I was shocked and not shocked at the same time.

(Translation: Mitch's Idea of working together means doing everything the GOP wants)
