But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Six Word Saturday - 1/30

Yesterday, Obama kicked lame Republican Ass!

Boneheads have NOTHING to stand on.
They regretted letting it be televised!

You can see it all HERE.

No actually he didn't. He just reminded everyone how good he is at making flowery promises and pointing out other people's flaws.
And before you ask, no I'm not a republican :)

Happy Six Word Saturday,

He went into the lion's den, outnumbered 140 to 1, and came out the winner.

Almost every Repub speaker came at him with some supposed "Gotcha" style talking point. He stayed cool, stuck to the facts (mostly) and he exposed them, time after time, as obstructionist liars and fools.

Yes, he's good at making flowery promises. I'm more disappointed than most by his Hooverism.

But it's not about pointing out Repugs' flaws (I do that here) - he has been far too circumspect in that regard, IMHO. The facts are, he knew more and understood more than any other person in that room, and quite possible more than all of them collectively. And he totally undressed them, while remaining a gentleman in the process.

And they really did regret letting it be televised. That's how bad he kicked their lame asses.

I didn't see any of this except the clip you've linked. And from that alone, wow. Who taught that guy how to ask questions? It's a whole attacking speech!

I do give Obama credit for showing them he's not afraid to go into the Republican "territory" and at least face them. I can't see certain other past administrations ever doing that.

Thanks for playing 6WS.

This is awesome!!!! Love it! I'm so sick of the Obama bashing that it's always quite refreshing to see some positive for the guy.

The Republican's got us in this fine mess and they expect him to get us out overnight. And let the guy pass the health care reform already. I can't go another moment with the crap insurance I have already!!!!!!

Happy 6WS!! Thanks for this :o)
