    at least acknowledges the truth, but then is offended by Obama criticizing 50 repeal votes.

    So it's ok for Republicans to try to kill the law 50 times, to try to sabotage it through misinformation, to refuse Medicaid expansion, etc.   But the President noting these things is "going too far."

    You know what they need? Key & Peele's Obama Anger Translator.

      the hyperbole/lies that they like to use with the president.  Remember how they repeated over and over about how Obama took ALL the credit for killing Obama, when you could hear the video of him giving credit to everyone else.  Truth was not important, if Obama opened his mouth in the most polite and gracious way and careful way, they pretended that he was demanding or bragging or showing off.   Now she is pretending that everyone thinks he is acting like a jerk for stating what is true.  The republicans are still trying to destroy the ACA.  It is one thing if this is just partisan stuff, but it always feels like they are still fighting the "Uppity".  I don't mind criticizing the president for things that are real, but the fake outrage is really annoying.  (How dare he say anything about what we really said!).

      years as a Democrat operative didn't save enough money so he could tell Fox to stuff it when they offered him the job of house minority in his years of decline.  He's there for the money.  And he certainly no longer represents anything about the Democratic Party.

      Proud to be a Democrat

    •  Ah, Bob Beckel. The token Democrat. (1+ / 0-)

      Both he and Kirsten Powers will always have a gig at FOX, so long as they toe the Ailes line by validating the alternate wingnut reality of the likes of Perino, Bolling and Hannity. And even if they don't, they will always be outnumbered 3-1.

      As milquetoast as Alan Colmes was, he was still shitcanned by Ailes because even granting him moderate time to pushback against Hannity's bullshit became too much to stomach during primetime, especially in October and November of 200b with Obama heading to victory. Wesley Clark's appearance after the third Obama-McCain debate may have been the final straw for Ailes. Hannity was ranting about Bill Ayers, or some crap, and Clark (with an assist by Colmes) effortlessly made him look buffoon.

      Colmes just being there was disastrous for Ailes' agenda. That's why you'll never see 2-1 in the Dem's favor ever again on FOX.

    •  Worst thing about Beckel is his laziness (3+ / 0-)

      Even when Beckel tries to fight back , he does such a terrible job of it. He just comes across as some fat lazy fuck who is their senile grumpy uncle.

    •  Well, exactly (0+ / 0-)

      So long as the Republicans are still saying they want to repeal it, he has to keep defending it.

      When Republicans come out and publicly say they were wrong and it is a success, then Obama can stop. They have no argument whatsoever - in addition to desperately looking for things to complain about, sounds like a lot of sour grapes coming through.
