  1. Typical Obama, spouting the empty vernacular and spinning the phony narrative of the chattering class (cling to outdated policies, changing times, broad consensus, a market for practial solutions, take on entrenched interests, not only encourage but also challenge, blah, blah, blah). Nauseating, as always.

  2. i’m uhh throwing uhh up, uhh uhh it’s uhh turned hhhinto uhh uhh the uhh dry uhh heaves uhh, ~ i’d love to see a phorensic speach pathologist dice this tripe ~ and for sure the phorensics person should wear a haz mat outfit due to the toxic lies spewing out.
    Somewhere in the middle of this he’s saying ‘New Innovative stuff that’s been tried and tested’ Wow is that an oxymoron or more third rail politics as usual… like all the other failures of this regime it is the audacity of his mendacious lies and propaganda that he expects us to believe and buy ~ sorry no sale you barbaric hack/jackass.
    The only prosperity America is feeling is the one of intentional suppression, repression and Occupation.

  3. Back at the turn of the new millennium my mother & I, both lifelong Chicago activists, had a conversation about this new guy on the Illinois political scene hoping he might be a refreshing new progressive voice in Congress.

    Those hopes were quickly smashed when his first big vote as a Congressman was to side with the big banks & credit card companies against consumers in general & his own constituents in the South side ghettos of Chicago in particular.

    We concluded right then this man was a wolf in sheep’s clothing & sounded the alarm bells, predicting way back then his quid pro quo would be bending over for the banksters — that his vote back then was to buy him a future later.

    Turns out it was precisely the bankster class that got him elected and who Obama has protected through thick & thin.

    In all the myriad of human language the single best word to describe Obama is arguably Yiddish — “Schmuck” — the waste byproduct of circumcision.

    Never in my life have I ever heard a human being speak (Chomsky the linguist ought to study this phenom) with so many pauses of “UH”. Virtually every sentence starts or ends with an “UH” to the point of being sickening, like some used car salesman lacking confidence.

    The audacity of the commercial press punditry is to consider him a great speaker!

  4. The most interesting thing about his cadence is how similar it is to that of Richard Nixon. Check it out when you find a minute.

  5. So, he was the Uncle Tom that Nader said he was, I am genuinely surprised by this.

    He’s also adopted the fake stammer/stutter, and now I think even Michelle uses it. It helps him to fake sincerity. As someone who has struggled with stuttering throughout my life, I’m particularly offended by this opportunistic appropriation of disability. But stutterers are notorious for not having our own interest/identity group and politics. To me, what he does is like walking with a fake limp.
