    immediate punditry on MSNBC---"one of Obama's worst speeches yet."  Where were these guys?  They sure weren't in the audience.  God Damn it, I've got to turn these blow holes off.  What a bunch of shit heads who think they know how real people feel and respond to Obama.

      But they are called upon all the time to opine on just that.

      Now just watch; Alter's face will be all over the TV for the next few days to spew his nonsense.

      on Jonathan Alter. Did Jonathan listen to the speech we just saw? These pundits are shameless and senseless.

      President Obama said vote for me and Democrats in Congress. He alluded to the down ballot to break the stalemate.

      He infact, asked for a Democratic Mandate!

      Where's he been hiding lately?

      Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others.

      The pundits always hate speeches with things like facts and substance.  They assume that speeches with numbers and math will go over the heads of regular folks.  I'm put in mind of Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

      The President never insults our intelligence. I loved the speech, loved that he laid out both plans so people would know exactly what the choice is for our future.

      I've been saying for awhile that the reason the Republicans kept saying their whole purpose was to defeat Obama was so we wouldn't realize that their actual plans for the country are disastrous.
