Russ sent me this one. Hope it goes viral.

On a related note of insanity...Drudge linked to this: In Obama's Jobs Speech, How Many Times Did He Say 'Pass the Bill'? -- VIDEO.

Good 'Un, Denny. Unfortunately, not enough people remember "TZ" or know who Keynes was to get the connection. I'm pretty sure sure, too, even Keynes would be apalled at the multi-trillion dollar deficits that seem to be the norm nowadays.

Did he mean 'pass the buck'? He didn't vote on very many bills when he was a legislator.

Aren't TelePrompTers designed to be mounted in front of the camera? If so, why does he never look at the camera when he's reading a speech? Or are the tv people just making the point that the man can't actually speak, but only read.

Hey! everybody knows he is not from Kenya, he released his birth certificate! You conservative nut jobs. ;~)

stine - TelePrompTers are always one on each side. It's only when he is close to a camera, like an address from the Oval Office, is the scroll on the camera itself.

He blew it big time by demanding a speech in front of a joint session of Congress. It allowed the Republicans to laugh at him when he gave his same ol' class warfare spend more money campaign speech. He was also ridiculed when the Republicans did not even ask for any time to make a rebuttal. He got expectations raised high and then in the speech, there was no "there" there. This was a speech that should have been given from the Oval Office if even given at all. He looks weaker and more like Jimmah Carter everyday.

Dumb cooncracker piece of shit. Dickless fucking toad!

That was a wise move, declining to rebut. It made the point that a rebuttal would likely be a superfluous distraction and would even lend credence to Obama's words because they would imply they were worthy of debate. Instead, the Republicans allowed the speech to sink under its own weight. If Obama made any sense, then his words could become the basis for a meaningful discussion. But he's a lunatic, and what's the point in arguing with a lunatic? Who's the bigger idiot, the man that makes a speech about a unicorn factory, or the man that takes the speaker seriously enough to discuss his call for a unicorn factory?

Why is this legislation getting bigger and bigger?

First it was $300 billion. Then $400 billion. Today, I read it was $447 billion.

What the hell?

This legislation is getting bigger and bigger because more and more dim cronies are being remembered every day. Before the dims are through with it, it will be the size of stimulus I.

Marksman, because he wants to spend us right to the gates of hell.

Posted by: kerrcarto on September 12, 2011 07:18 PM

I think that was the scariest episode I've seen yet!

Sandy, you were right when you said "not enough people remember "TZ" or know who Keynes was to get the connection." kerrcarto just demonstrated.

Buck, I know more than you would imagine.

I was playing the part of a liberal douchebag. Hence the little winking smiley face at the end.

"Marksman, because he wants to spend us right to the gates of hell."

He's doing a good god-damned job, isn't he? I can't imagine spending $447 billion dollars when I'm $14 trillion in debt! Not to mention, it doesn't take one penny of SPENDING to create jobs. All you need is real vision and a good dose of common sense!

Why does 2012 seem so far away? Denny, how did you get through the Carter years?

I need help. Alcohol consumption at the Marksman household is UP! This monkey is pushing me into a depression.

As an aside, "TZ" was prolly one of the BEST shows on TV, ever. It & "The Outer Limits" were pure entertainment, usually thought-provoking. The later remakes of both shows failed miserably, IMHO, because the producers of the latter-day efforts tried hard to make them all PC & touchy-feely.

Marksman2000 - It wasn't easy which makes me really pissed off at the 53% who voted for this dipshit. I really didn't want to relive those years.

Posted by: denny on September 13, 2011 04:09 PM

Well, if only 53% voted for him for the first time, then he WILL LOSE in 2012.

More people are unemployed. Gas prices are up. Inflation is up. I mean, NOTHING has improved.

How could he possibly be re-elected? I think Americans have learned their lessons--the hard way.
