Absolutely nothing new from the president who doesn't have a grasp of how economics works.
He wanted sequester so he didn't have to deal with cuts in the past. Two weeks and the stupidity kicks in. So much for leadership.

I read afterwards that he is patting himself on the back for the following.(copied and pasted)The president claimed that "both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion." But that's only an estimate of deficit reduction through fiscal year 2022, and it would be lower if the White House used a different starting point. Obama touted the growth of 500,000 manufacturing jobs over the past three years, but there has been a net loss of 600,000 manufacturing jobs since he took office. The recent growth also has stalled since July 2012. He claimed that "we have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas." Actual mileage is improving, but Obama's "doubled" claim refers to a desired miles-per-gallon average for model year 2025. Obama said the Affordable Care Act "is helping to slow the growth of health care costs." It may be helping, but the slower growth for health care spending began in 2009, before t

If I get to be president, I will get a mandate passed that says we will win 90% of the gold medals in the Olympics 20 years from now. Now that is leadership.

Watching Ricky Ricardo sweat, fumble and awkwardly drink water during the the "written in stone" republican rebuttal was much more entertaining.

blasphemer - good thing every one knows you are not racist and would never play the race card.
Reach around and pull the stick out of your bung hole.

Obama has been giving that same speech for 6 years. I heard he lip-synched it this time. Too bad his number one fan was being toasted in California at the same time. Dorner would have been a colorful addition to the first lady's gallery.

Al, How is poking fun at the repubs and their token latino racist? It is true he WAS bumbling more like Lucy.

blasphemer - think I'd get the race card if I referred to Barry's race when pointing out how lost he was in the debate without his handlers feeding him his lines on the teleprompter? At least he was smart enough to memorize his lines after that.

Pirate, Obamas race is black AND white. What's your point? At least he hasn't LIED about his parents putting their lives in danger while fleeing Castro's revolution.

***he hasn't LIED about his parents putting their lives in danger while fleeing Castro's revolution.*** But he DID lie about his parents meeting at the march in Selma (at which time he was 4 yr old) and he did lie about his mother's insurance and medical care and he did diss his grandma, calling her a typical white woman and he did lie to his publisher, leading them to print a brochure stating he was born in Kenya and giving his parents credentials they did not possess at the time of his birth...so, Blas, wutsyerpoint?

"SHUT UP!" he explained***blasphemer:My point dubya dubya zero seven is that you are ignorant. But I don't expect you to understand.***Such profound commentary! Your personal attacks on Senator Rubio and myself do nothing to relieve the fundamental dishonesty of your guy in the Whitehouse or his political subterfuge. Your attacks are lies. Your guy is a lie. His SOTU, this year and every year, is political theater for street level libs you can fool into accepting that lies and hypocrisy are something other than lies and hypocrisy...ie "nuance"

blasphemer is not a reliable source for virtually any topic. She/he is extremely biased and regularly pulls out the race card whether it is true or not.
What a doofus!

Nobama is hard at work on the sequester by playing golf in Florida as part of a week's vacation. He really cares about the middle class and the poor. He wasn't playing golf with either class of people.

Rusty, you are such a transparent ID10T. The Orange Man bragged he got "98% of what (he) wanted" and claims that he wants something done with the sequester, but decided to shut down the House and go on vacation - which has been typical of the House since the Petulant Party has had it back in their control.
Everyone knows it. So take your cheap shots and put 'em with your unskewed polls.
The whole sequester is a result of Republican intransigence and taking the US's good faith and credit hostage.
And again - EVERYONE knows it. So if the Gleefully Obstructing Progress party wants to keep showing they've learned nothing, then gerrymandering or not, the prospects for a return to sanity in '14 keep looking better.

Pirate - the reason he looked lost is that Obama thought he was going to be debating Romney's positions and not Romney's bald faced lying about his positions and incredulity of the shape-shifting. Romney lost the post debate when all the crap he spewed was shot down and then got his behind handed to him in the next debates after Obama figured out that Romney's mendacity (and that of the entire GOP) has no limits.
To suggest otherwise is dishonest. Oh wait, we're talking a republican't, so of COURSE we're getting Fixated On Xenophobia dishonesty.
WW07 - give us the link of where Obama said his parent met anywhere but in a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii. Let's see the quoted text.
Let me save everyone some time - he CAN'T. It did happen. The Right Wing disinformation machine did what they always do and made that crap up.
The sequester was Obama's plan because he wouldn't support the Bowles-Simpson plan and he still wanted to continue spending without being impaired by the debt ceiling.
Nice rewrite of history, but it isn't true.
EVERYONE knows you are lying.

There was a independent Bowles-Simpson (BS) plan, but NOTHING passed out of the BS commission. It failed. AND the BS plan also called for tax revenue increases which we all know Greedy Obtuse Psychopaths can't consider because of the adherence to a rigid ideology that based on nothing resembling reality.
So again, rusty - YOU ARE WRONG. Have you EVER had right associated to you about anything, other than right-wing nuttery?
Th revenue was already passed by Congress and signed by Nobama. Where are the spending cuts that were promised by our golfer-in-chief?
There was never a response from Obama on the BS report - not acceptance, not rejection, not changes. He's probably watching ***** with Tiger.
