    Presidential Jeopardy gone wild

    Presidential Jeopardy gone wild

    I know exactly where Sen. Jim DeMint is coming from,  Obama speech to Congress ‘going to be hard for me to watch’:

    “Frankly I am so tired of his speeches, it’s going to be hard for me to watch,” said DeMint on CNN’s State of the Union. “We need a plan in writing, he needs to send it to us and tell us what it is going to cost so not only Congress and the American people can read it, businesses can read it.”

    Whenever Obama’s in political trouble, he gives a speech.

    Whenever he’s in a lot of trouble, he gives a major speech.

    When he’s on the verge of a political meltdown, he gives a historic speech.

    And he is on the verge of a major political meltdown.  A meltdown as bad as in March 2008 when his mainstream media allies could not keep the lid on the Jeremiah Wright story, so Obama gave a historic speech on race as cover for the fact that for two decades a race-baiter was his mentor.  It was historic because the media lapped it up and refused to recognize the manipulation behind the effort.

    In September 2009, when his health care plans were wilting under the heat of summer town halls, he gave what he hoped would be a historic address on health care to a Joint Session of Congress.  It wasn’t historic.

    Now his stimulus and leadership on economic issues are on the verge of pushing his reelection dreams off the precipice, …. so he demands another appearance before a Joint Session of Congress.  My prediction is that there will be a collective “Stop it!” shouted in living rooms and bars across the nation, followed by a chant of “NFL, NFL, NFL!”

    This presidency is like an episode of Jeopardy gone wild, with every question being answered in the form of a speech.

    Update 9-5-2011 – Is this the fight Democrats really want to have?

    In case you hadn’t noticed, they are back to where they were at the beginning of the administration, just after taking office. Back then, when they wanted to try and get something done, the answer to any question was:”Let’s have Barack make a speech!” After a while people got tired of listening to him, so he tried to engage the public in various ways (the bus). That didn’t gain traction, because he is more wooden than Gore. Now they are basically back to square one, trying to get some dramatic effect. This isn’t going to work, either.

    […] what the reaction will be of those who watch the bloody thing, I think William Jacobson is right on target: Now his stimulus and leadership on economic issues are on the verge of pushing his reelection […]

    […] Who cares? I mean, honestly, does anyone care about what he says?   No Comments […]
