    Rep. Jeff Landry (La.) skipped the White House meeting because he didn't have the time to sit around and listen to Obama lecture him, especially after he has proven to be a failure and outright lied that he has lifted the ban on drilling.

    I think this would be my natural reaction to Obama if I was in his position. This is what they all should be doing.

    Landry is a hypocrite like most republicans today, his own party failed badly these past sixty years in which they had power, and yet all they can do is work to make Obama fail. One has to wonder if it would be better to crash the entire economy, stop support the old paid for SS and Medicare, and let corporations and wall street create another great depression. Well to do Americans are odd creatures that only work together when disaster strikes all. Sad bunch these greedy republicans. Big money has corrupted our nation's values in a way that is hard to fathom.

    "Every Wednesday morning, a group of conspirators meets to plot out how to most effectively attack the federal government. This is not a group of rag-tag terrorists – they wear $2,000 suits and occupy powerful positions in society. But their ideas are politically radical and they do pose a real threat to the normal workings of government in the U.S. They are a group of leading conservatives who believe that government is a malevolent force in society and they have a fierce determination to drastically cut it back. They are convinced that the central problem in our country is too much government – too many social programs, too many regulations, and too much taxation – and they are committed to doing something about it." Government is Good - The Anti-Government Campaign

    "Corporate propaganda directed outwards, that is, to the public at large, has two main objectives: to identify the free enterprise system in popular consciousness with every cherished value, and to identify interventionist governments and strong unions (the only agencies capable of checking a complete domination of society by corporations) with tyranny, oppression and even subversion. The techniques used to achieve these results are variously called 'public relations', 'corporate communications' and 'economic education'."

    Well, the meeting didn't need another whining GOP bitch at it, either. Plenty of other teagbagging freshmen showed up.


    :D

    Today is not the last 60 years. It's today.

    We can't go back to the Great Depression or to WW2 or to the Great Society Days.

    We have huge problems and the the only place to start from in fixing them is right here, right now.

    The Big 0 has no ideas, no solutions and I don't think he even understands the situation. Nero fiddled while Rome burned. That's only a metaphor. It means that the guy at the top is doing something, but that it has no healing effect. The problems get worse and the dope in charge allows the decline to continue either by purpose of through incompetence.

    It doesn't really matter why he can't do anything right. All that matters is that he can't.

    The next 18 months is about damage control. The entire country needs to unite to try to keep the Big 0 from taking the rest of down with him.

    They all walked out of the meeting and trashed everything he said. Cantor and Boehner are idiots, they didn't even comprehend anything that was said, guaranteed. Obama is so far beyond their grasp of anything that requires cognitive skills, it isn't even funny anymore.

    Your worship of Obama borders on frightening at times, G. He's not the Messiah really - you do know that,right?

    The longer we (as Americans) go on with this ridiculous bullshit, the longer our politicians have to bleed the nation dry. Is that what you want? If it is, that's fine but be honest about it. Don't pretend that you care about the country - as the founders intended it to be.

    What I liked about Landry was that he doesn't kowtow to the POTUS. We need more politicians who focus on those who elected them and not some guy in the Oval Office. The President works for us, he doesn't own the country, he's an employee.

    It's small minded to put your constituents over your President? Really? Damn, I thought 'We, the People' were the important ones, not some guy in the Oval Office.
