    C-SPAN 2 is showing PBO’s statement. Naturally. it is about their favorite topic—-WAR!!!!!
    So, okay, I am cynical. But it is hardly a matter of dispute that the media covers or ignores the PBO news in an uneven manner.

        truly. I’m getting frustrated.

          I come very close to tearing my hair out, strand by strand, at times like this 😦

            I’ve been on hold for at least 10 minutes…i get moved around to another customer service person each time I have a question. haven’t gotten a straight answer yet. fucked up music and recorded message that pops in from time to time. i have to go to the laundromat to do my dirty clothes and here I am waiting for someone on the phone that never comes. AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

            • July 6, 2015 at 4:24 pm

              THE most frustrating experience in the world – bad enough being passed from person to person, but the damn music on top of it!!!

                “press one to be frustrated in English”

                Phone robots are universally loathed, yet companies still insist on using them. Was so happy recently to call glasses.com and get a live person immediately! No robot whatsoever!

                    I think it’s the only one I’ve found so far that answers with a live person from the start. They will get my future business for sure, because of this.

    PBO always excellent and on point. What is it the MSM doesn’t hear when he speaks. To me he is clear and farsighted.

  9. July 6, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    WOW, President Obama is the most calm, reassuring, strategic and thoughtful of all time. He just gave a masterful update on ISIL operations and even took 2 questions. He answered them in a completely straightforward and complete manner with full command of the issues.
    I thank the universe for sending us this man. He is absolutely the very best for our nation. BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO.

      This is exactly what i was thinking. I also thought that ISIL should really fear him; he is formidable.

      • July 6, 2015 at 4:44 pm

        YES. He approaches these issues from every single angle.

    ” I didn’t even plan to do this (answer two questions); you guys got a bonus.”
    He threw them a bone after he finished his statement. At least the questions, while they were of the been there before type, at least were not stupid.

    For the life of me I do not understand the excitement over Bernie Sanders. In his many, many years in Congress, he has done all of nothing. So he is spouting EW’s rhetoric, which was begun by PBO. What indicates he has any capacity to lead? Or a broader picture of where the country needs to go? Where is he on Black Lives Matter? What is his foreign policy? And if he is a one topic candidate, how does he propose changing income inequality in this country with the current Congress? This has always been my issue with EW as well. It is easy to give a speech. Just how do you propose actually accomplishing it given the current realities? Funny, my concern with Hillary is the exact opposite, that she will compromise too much just to get something done. And I have zero interest in going back to Bibi dictating our policy in the ME.

      He’s like some obnoxious, ideologue version of Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Just pops out of nowhere with some upcoming purist calamity. “Awww Marty, we have to go the imaginary year of 19-whatever-the-hell when my thoughts were relevant and I made sense!!!”

        I’M AFRAID THAT IF HE STANDS TOO STILL AT THE PODIUM…HIS ARTERIES WILL HARDEN….FRANKLY…I THINK PEOPLE ARE VERY UNCERTAIN OF THE FUTURE…SO AT THIS POINT THEY WILL GO AND SEE THOMAS THE TRAIN!

    • July 6, 2015 at 6:27 pm

      i think that he excites all the so called libertarian and far left liberals…those who like the Far right do not believe in compromise and who are no matter what…”disappointed” in POTUS…now as time goes on he might address the issues that the rest of the Dems/liberals believe in…and instead of ranting…he might just have policy to recommend to address theissues…but until all that happens i have decided not to worry….

      buttttttt….

      i will worry if he decides to run in the General Election as a spoiler and to do that Ross Perot thing….

      Foxfire, he is like so many on the far left.. all utopian talk, no action.

      I remember back in 2007, I was invited to go see Dennis Kucinich speak, who was the far left darling “running” for the Dem nomination back then. I knew I wouldn’t vote for him, but it was a chance to meet a candidate in person. I remember when I arrived, there was a printout of his proposal for universal health care. I was impressed with what I read, so when the Q & A started, I raised my hand and asked him, “How do you intend to get universal healthcare passed with all of the opposition from the healthcare industry lobbyists?” His answer? “Well, my healthcare plan will cover chiropractic care, in case anyone in Congress needs to grow a backbone!” Then he moved on to the next questioner. I thought to myself, “Well, he’s useless.”

      As soon as Senator Obama announced his candidacy, I was on board. And now I have affordable, quality healthcare!

      And where’s Dennis Kucinich these days?

    • July 6, 2015 at 6:57 pm

      Is this following due to Bernie Sanders’ strength or HRC’s weakness? Both is likely. I’m just really shocked people are so beholden to him. Talk about the emperor who had no clothes!

    PBO played golf twice this past weekend; July 4th airstrikes took out the British-born major on-line ISIS recruiter. No wonder the prez looked badass at the news conference. Mofos who want to cause destruction need to be on notice when PBO plays golf, especially if it has been awhile since he hit the links.

    And the other shoe has dropped. Documents released have Bill Cosby testifying in 2005 that he plied women with Quaaludes in order to have sex with them.

    Bernie Sanders accuses the President (not by name).. of cooking the unemployment numbers…he lays out his own unemployment times

    Constant photos of Trump and Cosby on twitter. Oh, please, make it stop.
