Why do you think Rush did not advertise the Tea Party in DC?

Uh, he was on a drug run and couldn't be bothered?

Or this?



They are still closer to reality than bambam - who said UE would not rise above 8%, WITH the stimulus.
Why are you looking at 2010.
This is 2009.

If you look a little closer at the link provided, you'll notice 2009 has a projected unemployment of 8.3%.

And here's a hint.

Boo hoo, you're sick of the President being on television. And you reach the astonishing conclusion that he's an egomaniac...because...he's on television...a lot. He should stay in the White House and do nothing, right? Can't have him bothering the people he was elected to support, nah, better to have him try to land lucrative book deals for when his four years are up.

Why can't this logic be applied retroactively to Bush? Why didn't he just stay in Crawford so none of us ed-u-macated people would have to be subjected to his Texas-sized ego with his acquired Texas accent?

Obama made promises. So did every other elected official. How is that any more or less objectionable than when they can't deliver? Obama speaks half-truths and distortions. So has every President since the invention of recorded sound.

How is Obama the ENEMY (arrr, grrr, growwwlllll....) when he is no different from all the others? And what flavor of Kool-Aid are you drinking that makes you not see how utterly foolish you are for not only placing blame on a puppet but also dividing the country you claim you're supporting? So you've determined who your enemy is. How does that accomplish anything constructive?

So Strongly? Have you ever really bothered to look at the numbers? 53%??

You will find that approx 800,000 votes total made the difference in those states he won that were very, very close.

FL, NC, OH, VA, IN.

800,000 - not a very big deal and can easily swing back the other way.

Flip those EV into McCain's column and obama loses.

Of course I wouldn't expect you to know this.

Check it out - it will rock your little world.

What a novel thought. How about he stay in the WH and get some work done instead of prancing around the US, wasting time, money and resources?

He is on a perpetual campaign. No one is listening - they are burned out with his same, tired old rhetoric (lies) that have been shown to be just that - lies.

So they can't find a leader.....Hmmm, you would think they need leaders. The repubs have criticized Obama by saying he's not a leader...but they think THEY don't need a leader????

LOL!

Well, I'd say almost 10,000,000 more votes is pretty strong, certainly a bigger majority than your pissant little cowboy had in 2000



Oh, WAIT! HE didn't have a majority, did he?

I've been saying this for a while. He is way, way overexposed. No one watches his "events" anymore, no one believes his same, tired old rhetoric that has been debunked over and over again.

Great analysis by G. Will.
..and he keeps saying "my plan" and yet he has never produced a viewable, printable, readable form of what he calls "my plan", and no 0bama plan is making its way thru committee or the senate or congress.
