Best Speech EVERrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Recommended Posts

Kind of cool hu? 

 

“We do not need more mealy-mouthed elected officials who claim they are disappointed by this bad behavior and then don’t do anything about it and just go along with it,” he said. “We need leaders who actually stand up for what is right, regardless of party.”

Obama also used the speech to point out the hypocrisy of Republicans overlooking Trump’s reported use of an insecure cellphone, which White House sources told The New York Times earlier this week is being hacked into by Chinese and Russian spies. The GOP and Trump relentlessly went after Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server. 

“They didn’t care about her emails … because if they did, they’d be up in arms right now, as the Chinese are listening to the president’s iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart,” Obama quipped.

No surprise that Trump didn't think of anybody bugging his phone. He's dumb.

I'm sure somebody has worked out where the late-night White House McDonald's orders go to. Maybe they've been lacing Donnie's Big Macs with microdoses of LSD and methamphetamine.

Miss him yet?

anyone got a link to the whole speech? It's pleasant to listen to an articulate witty orator for a change.

It's a good thing I'm not President.

First thing I'd do upon learning the Chinese are listening: start talking about how much their leader looks like Pooh. They're not allowed to listen to that!

Sorry but the best political speech ever is:

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

 

In the name of God, go!

 

Shame that no one will deliver this to the F**wits we currently have in Congress, Senate and Whitehouse...

Obama’s visuals are not good.  He looks super-pissed off, which is not a good look for an ex-president.  Putting him out there could turn off independents, because he reminds them about how bad the economy was during his administration.   Of course he should be po’ed because his legacy, which was so important to him, is in tatters.  He’ll go down in history as little more than an asterisk.

There was an interesting discussion on this on NPR's Left, Right, and Center yesterday. 

I got couple Iof interesting take aways:

The concern about this is lessened by the fact that Trump has difficulty both reading and remembering classified information. (It's alleged that staff include his name in every paragraph so it will hold his interest long enough to get through it).

Another one is that this activity would DOMINATE the news cycle for a good quarter under any other President. Before coming on to the show, one of the participants called a friend who was a national security expert, and the guy he called was stunned that he diddnt know about it. There are simply too many goofy transgressions in this Whitehouse to keep up with.

This particular topic begins at 12:15 into the 10/26 podcast available here:

Maybe if Obuma had appointed an honest AG instead of one that gets on planes for private meetings with ex-presidents who's wife is under investigation he would have given a different speech. The lack of indictments is the best indication of the corruption under Obama.

And, there is the matter of his claim being incorrect (lie). Patreaus.

Bad?  You mean the bankrupt economy Bush and his cronies left for Obama?  He saved our version of capitalism, put our economy on a long upward road of gains which are still going today.    You are a fucking shill or stupid.   Do yourself a favor and look at a graph or two.

Personally prefer the ex-presidents step aside as their race is run.

He was not even a good caretaker president. 8 years of malaise. "Keep your Plan' was the biggest lie any president since Bill Clinton has told the American people.

Who’s the fucking shill dumbass. Obama presided over the slowest economic recovery ever.  Remember his “Trump is gonna need a  “magic wand”” because “jobs are not coming back."   Do yourself a favor and look at a graph or two of unemployment rates across all demographic groups (hint: they’re at historic lows).  Look at consumer and business confidence.  Look at what the DJIA has done since since he was elected.  Guess you’re the ignorant one...

That was manufacturing jobs,   Have they?    Most recent thing I heard predicted 50% could be lost to automation within seven years (with new jobs in robot waxing being created).

Because it was so fucked up when he stepped in.   Please compare that economy to the one Trump stepped into.  Since only the great depression was a worse crash maybe you should compare apples to apples not some small recessions.

Looks like Obama took it from the Bushes near 10 down to <5 and Trump riding on the Obama legacy economy moving it another single point.    I apologize as you're not talented enough to be a shill.

I’m sorry you are so butthurt that Obama was such a failure.  Remind me again of the Obama policies that were responsible for the tepid recovery.  He was smart enough to stay out of the Fed’s free money policy, which is the ONLY thing that kept the economy afloat.

Obama’s brand of ineffectual leadership is what you get when you elect a junior senator with a paper-thin resume because of his skin color and ability to give a good speech (written by someone else and read off a TelePrompTer).

I agree that automation is looming as a huge problem for this country, as well as the rest of the world.  It’s something that both the Executuve and Legislative branches will need to work together to deal with.  Finding solutions would be a lot easier if one of the two parties would participate in government, instead of Resist!

How do you regulate technology?    It makes more sense to have a robust education system so people can retrain.   Unfortunately thats been labeled liberal.

Have at it. I'll be particularly interested in how you connect any of Bernie's speeches/actions to Hodgkinson's violent act. Bonus points if you can tie it all to Hillary, Obama, or Soros instead of Hodgkinson's absolute hate for Trump.

I know how to fix it!

Let's give all CEOs a 20% pay raise, while keeping wages flat. That way the average worker will have less time to vote pursue education. Then we can also reduce workplace safety standards, and pollution regulation, so that the average working family will have more health problems. As a bonus, we'll make sure that they are strong self-reliant Americans by taking away all gov't supported health care. Finally, we'll make sure that they all play the lottery by eliminating Social Security.

What a great plan! If only one of our major political parties would do something similar to this, it would really be Great (again)!

Now we have a *resident and a ruling party that basically wrote a trillion dollar bad check to pump up the already rising economy.  

Some, like Ryan, were hoping that it would work - against all evidence and advice, but in line with their beliefs.

Some, like McConnell, don't give a fuck, but love giving money to rich people.

Some just want government to fail.  And have an excuse to cut social security, medicare and anything else that helps people.  Ryan's probably in this camp as well.  So he gets a two-fer.

Yeah, I loved how Mitch sold the farm for $1.5T, and then said there's not enough cash to pay for all the military spending, so we'll just start working on grabbing your benefits (SS, Medicare, etc) while Side Show Donny entertains the masses with his daily buffoonery. He's the biggest fucking asshole in our government. I wish he'd show up in one of my local restaurants.

I wish anyone of them would show up to the local restaurants here, They'd probably get food poisoning at the very least...... But the crowd would love them as they were puking, and shitting themselves.

I have a friend who has the very unusual secret talent of being able to vomit on demand. True. Not sure how he does it, but it is damn handy in situation where you really want to make your point/statement. Like when the fat lady at the DMV tells you that you're in the wrong line and have been for the last 2 hours. I hope that if I ever get to sit next to Mitch at a diner, he's with me.
