MARTIN BASHIR & JOE WALSH INTERVIEW
I’m proudly calling this the Rope-A-Dope interview! I just LOVE the way Martin Bashir reels Rep. Joe Walsh in and just when he’s feeling all comfy on his podium of Tea Party destructiveness and the Obama derision train, WHAM! Now, that’s PATHETIC!
Three cheers for those who are sickened by hypocrisy, immorality, the ongoing cycle of lies and negativity that has become the GOP and have the guts to call out idiocy wherever they see it. As Joe Walsh so succinctly opines, “the proof is in the pudding.”
I’m so loving Martin Bashir right now and can I just add he’s a truly spiffy dresser? Elegance, brains, chutzpah and eloquence ;).
PRESIDENT OBAMA – STATE OF THE UNION
And now, for all that is not pathetic, contrary to John Boehner’s ridiculous prediction, have a listen to the State of The Union. It was a thing of beauty.
The proposals and policy items put forth in the State of The Union speech were truly progressive, and a real indication that President Obama is actually listening to the populace. At least, those of us not obsessed with taking the country backward by a 100 years. His speech was sharply optimistic, in contrast to the Republican mantra of negativity, a smackdown on Congressional obstruction, a call for accountability and cooperation needed to get our country back on track. His salvo on banning Congressional insider training, the announcements of a Mortgage Crisis and Financial Crimes Unit, to name a few things, were RIGHTEOUS. Great recap article from Politico here.
He may not be perfect, but I have every confidence that with the right Congress behind him he will do an excellent job. I couldn’t help but note the truculence, petulance and obstructionist attitudes of the GOP which were on full display, not standing or clapping for many American milestones and value based statements SMH. And John Boehner? Let me gloat for a minute. He looked discomfited for much of the speech and jumps (with fear? guilt?) when President Obama references him LMAO. GAME ON!!!
“Fighting obstruction with action…” President Barack Obama
