America to Obama: Shut the Fuck Up Already!


Nothing interesting was being said! Looking back on this presidency, it has from the beginning been a 17,000 word New Yorker piece in which,
calmly, sonorously, with his lovely intelligent voice, the president says nothing, or little that is helpful, insightful or believable. "I'm not a particularly ideological person." "It's hard to anticipate events over the next three years." "I don't really even need George Kennan right now." "I am comfortable with complexity." "Our capacity to do some good .... is unsurpassed, even if nobody is paying attention." Nobody is! Peggy Noonan: The Sleepiness of a Hollow Legend - WSJ.com

Your Say

Lost me when I got down to "Peggy Noonan." She, and those like her, ought to be wisely silent when the subject is Obama. I hope they had a good time at the goddamned cocktail parties they got invited to for the efforts they made to sway public opinion in his favor.

America's Mussolini is an accomplished con man, but then his marks are so easy.

I liked George Will's take on the whole SOTU phenomenon better: the Idiot's Tale from Macbeth. Doubly true when the sound and fury are emanating from Mr. Nothing himself, 0bama.

John Kass:

"The prospect of listening to him blah blah blah his way through three more of these annual speeches is enough to cause the nation to curl up on the floor in the fetal position and start breathing from a brown paper bag. The man is talking the country to death, and we can't take anymore."
