came away with the same feeling I had during the SOTU Address Wednesday. He was still arrogant, insulting, and finger pointing. This statement, which he said during both speeches struck me most:
QUOTE: He said the American people don't "want us to focus on our job security. They want us to focus on their job security."
It left me cold with the feeling that he was directing it mainly at the Democrats Wednesday night regarding the health care bill that he is still determined as much as Nancy Pelosi to get passed, NO MATTER WHAT, and that he is directing them to throw themselves under their political buses to make him look good.
The rookie took him to task and Obama fielded those four or five promised points very deftly without fact based statements when you actually look at the record, just as Obama, as a Constitutional attorney and professor, got the facts wrong during his insulting remarks to the Justices of the Supreme Court sitting ten feet away from him. None of that part of his speech was in the preview that was handed out ahead of time, so he literally sucker punched the Justices and blind sided them during a public speech. He is allowed to disagree with them, but in order to disagree insultingly, he better have his facts correct or he again loses credibility....and in my opinion he did.
140 to 1....and The Appointed One did not win, in my opinion. He came to lecture and he did. He has lost credibility heavily on all fronts over his last ten or so attempts when he confronted the campaign trail and the public, the SOTU Address, and now the GOP retreat.
The Dems also made darn sure that they were able to pass the 1.7T dollar debt limit by 60-39 by refusing to seat the Mass Senator Elect in time for that vote, when history has shown that others were sworn in within a day or two without waiting for written confirmation.
Convince me that they want bipartisanship.
