#5 He's the MESSIAH. He will give us HOPE. He will give us a more transparent and caring government.He will bring us all together and you can all have that thrill up your leg.

Remember Mussolini? Where is Mussolini buried today? Does anyone know? Hanging by his heels in a gas station with a bullet in his head and his girl friend and a few close buddies hanging up there alongside him.
In the end you just have to be patient and wait. Some people have an inevitable destiny.
But remember those inaugural marble columns and all those Lincolnesque speeches. Quote me a single line from memory of any of them. No?

If his speeches were so good how come no one can remember anything Obama said from any of them.? But he sure CHANGED your life, didn't he? And Biden...that was pure genius. How DO those democrats produce such giants?

#6 First thing he ever said I agreed with, but as Fred noted, he IS Washington. He's just trying to separate the CEO from the rotten company.

#7 He's Chicago, which makes Washington look honest and restrained.

#8 Now, now you must be kind to the one. After all the hardest thing about being infailable is you must put up with everybody elses mistakes!

#9  Ho-hum. I expect the usual proportion of incumbents will be re-elected in Nov. 2014.

#10 ...gee, it's almost as if he may have an alternate system in mind...

#11 He is insane. He must honestly believe he is somehow above all the chaos and mess he and his party created there. The sad thing is the press aids and abets this lie by covering for him with bias in reporting and editorial bias (dciding not to cover the bad stuff)

#12 Obama is shifty. He tries to portray himself as an outsider and far above Washington politics, a man of the people when in reality he is the ultimate insider--and a Machiavellian, narcissistic smuck.

#13 Its interesting how folks compare him to Hitler and Mussolini. What is more interesting on closer look is he is using the same tools and tactics at those two. He calls himself the peoples guy, an outsider to politics, he has near total control over the media, he is willing to let people suffer for his goals, and on and on. What is the most dangerous of his tools are he has the youth believing in him and he has identified the patriotic as the problem in this country. His model is torn from the pages of Mein Kampf. Like Hitler and Mussolini he will betray his brown shirt base. I believe with his Obama care he has done just that.
His base point fingers, expect everyone else to pay for them, its everyone else's fault. Well kiddies, he is planning on his base to pay for this, they will be the ones his IRS goes after first. I for one will enjoy the irony of all of this...

#14 I agree. Let us fire George Bush and run himu out of town for making such a mess.

#15 Until someone else has a real alternative to the media Obama can do what he wants and get away with it. He knows it, and the Republicans know it. The three branch structure of government is unbalanced because of it.

It is possible that by the time he leaves office his malfesence will be so obvious the MSM will either reform or be considered a laughingstock but who knows what will replace it.

#16 I feel like we are at that point in the 60s when Star Trek was cancelled because of poor ratings, but not long after they discovered about demographics and loyalty and realized they'd killed the golden goose.

At some point the politicians will learn not to trust biased polls and biased media and make decisions on their ideals (as they were elected to do).

#17 It is being reported that our debt clock has just gone over $17 trillion. Our run-up to $17 trillion began in earnest about the time of Johnson's presidency and his war on poverty. The War on Poverty did little to change poverty but it cost a great deal of money. Obummer has contributed about $6 trillion to this debt and growing. Obama and his choom gang will put us and future generations in ruin with Obamacare. This idiocy in Washington has to stop. We are heading towards the Weimar Republic region rapidly. Soon a loaf of bread will cost $3000 or more at the rate we are going. There is absolutely no fiscal discipline or restraint in Washington.

#18 Fed up? Don't take the train.

18 Oct. 4:00 PM

Union station, DC. Gate B.

A crew shows up and puts Barrycades outside the gate.

Then they string red police tape.

Then about 12 vehicles show up on the platform and make "U" turns.

Gate opens 10 min late.

At track 10 there's a special car at the rear of a train. A renovated lounge car like pols used to make whistle stop speeches. I'm on track 12.

Depart 10 min late.

Must have been a special train / car for Cho-Cho Biden.

Of course, three northbound trains have to wait for lunch-bucket Joe.

#19 As per #17, see on FREEREPUBLIC = Washington Times Artic.

IMO the Bammer broke his own multiple "red line(s)" on the debt ceiling brouhaha.

#20 ION RUSSIA TODAY > BOND MARKET REVOLT MAY HIT US IN 2016 AS IT REFUSES TO DEAL WID DEBT CRISIS.

ARTIC PERT = US Debt is repor today as being over US$17.0Trilyuhn = 107% of GDP = 700% of US Revenues [aka Debt-as-Percentage-of-Revenue], AND MORE LIKELY TO RISE THAN NOT DUE TO US GOVT = TWO-PARTY IDEOLOGIES. The latter "700%" figure is much more important or significant than Debt-to-GDP, + should clearly indicate to anyone that it is all but absolutely impossible or hopeless for the US to be able to profiently service its debt burdens.

IIUC, IOW DESPITE THE NEW DEBT DEAL THE PROVERBIAL CLOCK IS STILL CLICKING DETRIMENTALLY TOWARDS US UNSUSTAINABILITY + FINALLY COLLAPSE.

* TOPIX > EUROPEANS AGOG AT AMERICANS' INABILITY TO COMPROMISE, AGHAST AT LIKELY LONG-TERM IMPACT.

* SAME > [SCMP] END OF GOVT. SHUTDOWN WON'T REVIVE DYING US DEMOCRACY.

* DRUDGEREPORT > DEBT THREATENS CHRISTMAS |[BreitBart] SEASON OF UNCERTAINTY FOR STORES.

* BLOOMBERG > [Post-Debt Deal] REPUBLICAN CIVIL WAR ERUPTS: BUSINESS GROUPS VERSUS TEA PARTY.

Inter-GOP, Conservative "Battle for the Year 2025" = "IFF MAN, FREEDOM, + AMERIKA IS STILL ALIVE ..."???

versus

* SAME > [SCMP] OPINION: CHINA + OTHERS OUT TO SUPPLANT US MUST BE CAREFUL WHAT THEY ASK FOR.

They just might get it.
