    At least he’s got those ears for sails; the rest of us will be stuck out there for decades…

    A sea of debt created by 30+ years of Reaganomics and 13 years of Clintonomics. Let’s blame it all on the sphartzer.

    Someone please explain this obsession with teleprompters. They have been used by every president for every speech since their introduction. Why is this suddenly a reason for derision? It can’t be because people think he can’t speak off the cuff; when Mr. Obama does it, he uses complete sentences, in stark contrast to his predecessor.

    The reality is that Debt’s done nothing but trend down since Obama’s first year in office, and the Stock Market has done nothing but trend up. But who you gonna believe, yer own lying eyes or what the Glen Gold Rush Standard Fox whispers in your pathetic little ear?

    The debt is trending down? NEO CON name calling? Do you lazy liberal morons ever listen to yourselves? Keep drinking your delusional cool aid as the country goes down the sh!#er. You self loathing losers will be the first to suffer from your willful ignorance. You’re nanny government will implode under this treasonous regime. Then you might have to take care of yourselves for once in your low lives.

    Thanks for your response. So, the teleprompter keeps him from dragging his sentences and pausing so often. That helps to explain the running joke. Doesn’t seem all that funny, but I do understand now. Thanks for the clarification.

    GM hasn’t made an attempt to pay back Chinese credit card company that the Dems used to bail them out.Nor do I think they will.Look at how much union dues money the dems would not be receiving in campaign contributions if GM had to go through bankruptcy and lay off union workers and close plants.Instead they dumped on the stock holders and borrowed money that the tax payers have to pay back to China.I saw a Volt burning on the freeway the other day.

    I’ll agree that other administrations had a hand in the debt, I’m not sure that lets Obama off the hook for his contribution to the problem.

    Also…‘sphartzer’? Never heard that one before.

    I thought Obama’s comments the other day about race were extremely eloquent and moving. And no teleprompter.

    “And Standar & Poor (historically) downgraded the US credit rating.
    Another Obama historic first.”

    First off, Standard and Poor was complicit in the Wall Street Great Taxpayer Giveaway, overvaluing the liquidity and reliability of Freddie, Fannie, Lehman, AIG, etc., so we cannot assume that they are strictly without agenda.

    But their stated reason for reducing US credit rating was their uneasiness with the willingness of some parts of Congress to send the country into default in order to gain political points, intentionally destabilizing confidence in the US treasury. If Congress had been willing to vote up-or-down to raise the debt ceiling as in the past, as opposed to tying it to political footballs like tax cuts and the Keystone pipeline, it is quite likely that our credit rating would have not been downgraded. As a result of downgrading of credit rating, our interest rate on our debt went up.

    This is not to say that Mr. Obama is blameless. It is to say there’s plenty of blame to go around.

    But here’s the thing: blame does not solve problems. And it can make people less willing to work with one another to solve them. At this stage, our country cannot continue to wait for us to bicker before possibly getting down to the problems at hand. Yet we still do, and quite willingly, in some circles.
