    Oh there's some smoker tweets at this link. Here's just a few.

    :D

    Before the speech was over, Politico’s Mike O’Brien begged the president to stop.

    In terms of politics, this speech could have ended about 20 minutes ago. Drive your message, take your ball, go home.


    On the air, MSNBC’s Jonathan Alter said it was “one of the worst speeches I’ve ever heard Barack Obama make.” He refused to back down.

    Just cheerleading BO doesn't help him. He needs a sharper, more cogent message with some memorable lines. I ain't walking my criticism back


    I love this one.:razz:

    The long running time of President Obama’s speech made Politico’s Jennfier Epstein think of a new inspirational maxim for the country.

    Jennifer Epstein @jeneps

    In America we don't quit til we've spoken for 54 minutes


    Buzzfeed’s Zeke Miller was clearly unimpressed.

    There is nothing new in this speech.

    Partisan politics aside, Obama's campaign is truly flawed.

    He's seriously been over exposed for years in the media from Jay Leno to the View. And his speech writers absolutely suck.

    It's part of his narcissism IMO. Listen to him answer questions in his few real press conferences. He just babbles on and on. He truly thinks just saying things authoritatively and looking presidential is all it takes to be a leader. Which is quite laughable as all he's ever lead is a protest in his community agitator days.

    I'm starting to think we can put a fork in him sometime before November.

    when has a politican not ever given a boring, long winded speech? Reagan was the best at meandering and getting lost during his speeches.

    Yes he has been FAAAAAAR over exposed. But his "speeches," if that's what you want to call them, are nothing but a rehash of blame, blame, blame topped off with some new bull shit, like "measures to pay down the debt," OMG... :lol: It's old, and people are sick of listening to his whining and complaining like a petulant little boi king.

    Time for him to move on and let the adults run the country.
