Obama made a good point just now in his speech. He noted how the opposition comes up with hysteria about pulling the plug on grandma and illegal aliens, but do they have any answers about health care reform? No, and he is right. Listening to his speech right now even if this was half of the rhetoric involved in the back to school speech, I would say good for him. Of course we know the back to school speech is just going to be about that, staying in school.
He was speaking to a slightly partisan all-union AFL-CIO crowd just down the road from me. They were enjoying their free annual picnic at a local swim club / amusement park.
Yes it is pretty evident that these are Obama's core supporters. However, it is an nice change from those who question him about imagined things, such as subversive teachings in a back to school speech.
Hey Sweetie Pie.
He says a lot of *gasp* logical and intelligent things.
Must be an elitist! Oh, wait, he wants more equality...must be a commie! But he wants to talk to the children about America...holy mackerel, the nerve of this subversive fella. Are we SURE about that birth certificate....?
Just had to throw a bone seeing as 42 minutes later ya got nothing on this one.
Post "Obama pulling plug on Grandma" and you'll get tons of responses!!!
Glad to see you posted here Robee. I just wanted to start a more positive thread about Obama since I see all the nonsense is still going on over there on the school kids thread. Obama did a good job speaking the AFL-CIO, and this is one of his better speeches in months. Of course I am sure my opposition will be along shortly to refute this point .
Obama is the incompetent semi-Antichrist! He is mind-melding with the school children and turning them into communist/fascists.
How could you post this, SP? You are SO illogical.
Do I hear a "Hell, Yeah" out there?????
Amazing... you and TK...separated at birth?
Yes. And she explains it in her one hub.
I don't know how she made the connection. Must be all the hair. Kudos to her, really. But then again, you know communists and fascists are the same thing, too. This has got to be part of it all.
All the communists cheering at the AFL-CIO were a nice change from the John Wayne tea bag impresonators/protesters .
Of course we all know Lita is joking . There is no way her and tk could ever be the same person.
Sure they can. If you and Tex are the same person anything's possible.
Considering I am pretty girly, I am sure Tex and I have very little in common .
Ron if we were the same person I would never leave the house, you may need to explain that to Duckboy!
Okay that is a strange comment. I do leave the house, and I noticed you are posting here too!
I thought it was his beast speech since the campaign. Inspirational and thoughtful. Didn't even need to atatck anyone to get his point across.
The speech to the kids tomorrow, all about working hard and staying in school. Not sure how the right can fight against that.
You better watch out posting the yin and the yang symbol here. Some parents might get mad and think Obama is trying to teach them about eastern philosophies because heaven forbid at school we learn about, other cultures .
Every time he is on television. Obama, more than Bush did with the left and Clinton did for that matter, has reached out to the right. He has not been met.
There are some Republicans out there with some ideas, and not all of them are bad. They are just being drowned out right now. Hopefully, common sense will win out and something can get done.

I think Pres. Obama's Immigration Reform speech was one of the best he has given. He touched on all the right points. And I like the content of his proposed action.Here is the speech:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeT_vu31eawBut... I also think it was a pure political move. I do not believe he was...

Is it not a little telling that it comes up at all? Questioning his nation of origin, and in other ways making reference to his race. It seems entirely irrelevant, though a person can definitely question many other things about his policies, and there's plenty of it to question. It seems his...

We are constantly being bombarded by breaking news from both sides of the political spectrum. It's not just a matter of presenting the news, but it's also the talking heads that follow the breaking news events. They are presented as experts, when in reality, they don't have any more of a clue...

Thought about doin' a hub but what's the use? After a quick review I found He used the first person "I" 96 times and his comment slamming the Bush administration, something he never does you know, saying many referred to it as the 'lost decade' has never been used by anyone to...
