    I guess I’d be more saddened by this had we had a chance to say “hello” at all. Isn’t this the same President who told Republicans “I won” on Day 3 his first term while locking them out of the process of writing his stimulus bill? Ron Fournier laments the departure of a man who never arrived:
    In the second two years, after Republicans took control of the House, we couldn’t even get the Senate to fulfill its legal obligation to produce budgets, while Obama’s two budget proposals were so radical that they couldn’t muster a single Democratic vote in favor in three separate floor votes on Capitol Hill, let alone any Republicans. Instead, we careened from cliff to cliff, and in fact are still careening while Obama insists loudly that he won’t negotiate on debt limits, all while national debt skyrockets past $16 trillion.

    However, Fournier is undoubtedly correct that Obama’s inaugural speech was mostly a thumb in the eye to his opposition. As a new spot from Crossroads GPS demonstrates, that message came through loud and clear to everyone:


    David Ignatius ripped Obama’s speech in yesterday’s Washington Post in their blog named — wait for it — PostPartisan:

    "The departure of a man who never arrived".

    That pretty much sums it up.

    Do any of you Obama supporters even know where he is heading? Or have you abandoned your last vestiges of personal responsibility and are willing to blindly follow him over a cliff?

    Americans do not bow to anyone, only liberal spineless pantie wastes bow. Your Messiah is nothing more than the living embodiment of Partisan Politics, so shut up, pay your taxes, and continue eating crow.

    A tyrant held in check does. But when unchecked....... witness his cruel abuse of the will of the people when he was unchecked and rammed thru Healthcare legislation which the people despised.

    They deserve it, it's who they voted for. No sympathy from me. The more they suffer the better I like it.

    Here's the facts- the American public is rejecting the half of the GOP that are overwhelmingly ignorant, brainwashed Rush/Beck/Savage etc etc (90% racist) MORONS like you.

    Climate change IS happening and fighting pollution is smart ANYWAY, there should be be backgrpund checks on all sales and limits on assault weapons, jobs bills like we've ALWAYS had in hard times, infrastructure rebuilding, and help for education and training, and saying we have to do it together is NOT divisive unless you're "no compromise, un-American Tea Party GOP" (TIME).

    Change the "channel" and we're hoping for your recovery.

    This was the man who told us in 2008 he was going to change the way Washington did business here we are on 2013 and it's the same old same old I'm not shocked.
