     His criticisms of Obama or his administration would be news worthy. Telling the masses to stfu is ridiculous.  Obama may be as pure and well intentioned as the driven snow, but it is results that count; and his results aren't so hot for a Democrat. Now if Obama was a Republican doing what he's doing, you'd have historical.  

    Don't tax the rich, starve the poor.

    •  Which man does Mr. Jones (6+ / 0-)

      work for?? Geeez, I thought resigning from the admin would at least shelter him from that canned criticism.

      I didn't get the sentiment that most folks, here anyway, got the message that he said STFU when they listened to this speech.

      Interesting yard sticks you have for Dem Presidents considering it isn't over and time always judges better.

      We shall see...

        18 months, gawwww, we should already be to the rainbow and pony phase of Warcraft.

        Nearly 6 decades of sailing around on this ship of state has taught me that it doesn't turn to the left very quickly, nor does it stay on a steady course really well.

        But the biggest source of angst i've seen in the last decade, i believe comes from point and click perception that things should move faster than they do. These new toys/tools only move some mental processes faster, but not all and certainly do little to make physical processes move closer to the speed of light.

        It's like pushing a Bugatti Veyron to 210 mph then pulling behind a school bus in traffic for 20 miles.

          'Point and Click Perceptions'  Yes!!!

          Consider yourself a victim of Dkos theft. LOL  No seriously, that term crystalizes a good deal for me.

          Technology. Yep, it plays a role, good and bad.

          And I'm guilty of allowing it's effects to sometimes color my perceptions in a way that don't make sense when you take humanity as a whole into account.

          Sometimes I wish they could make certain physical processes move faster. Heh!  

          •  I came up with that term quite humbly. (2+ / 0-)
