It has been said by some that Obama is the smartest president ever, and I'm still waiting for proof because last time I checked arrogance laced playground logic is not much of a factor in the calculating an intelligence quotient.
Did the GOP botch things to the point of deserving to lose power, YES! But the only reason they didn't "go out into the wilderness" because the entire country is there now after Obama dragged it KICKING AND SCREAMING out there with him. There simply wasn't any more room.
This president is on a trajectory to bring more debt to the country than every president before him combined, and he has the nerve to still pop a squat on what the GOP did? Does he think his sinking poll numbers are just dumb luck?
Nobody who hasn't erected a shrine to MSNBC believes Obama is making an honest effort to improve anything. He has made it as clear as the door to the socialist closet he hides behind that he cares more about ideology and less about having the intellectual curiosity to figure out what the right thing to do about anything would be.
This is getting to be so old now, this idiot bashes Bush so much I'm starting to wonder if his marriage to Michelle is a sham.
The recession brought on by the dot com bubble burst came under the Clinton watch. 90% of 9-11 was being planned by Al Queda while Bill Clinton was president. White House interns confused blue dresses with sponges, and you'll find Obama's real birth certificate delivered to Congress via Santa Claus riding a unicorn before you'll ever read a single instance of George W. Bush blaming Bill Clinton for ANYTHING he had to deal with.
So what "new ideas" does the GOP need to come up with anyway? What the hell has been so new about what King Dipp brings to the table?
If the world was a party where everyone was drinking beers and yucking it up to movie quotes from "The Hangover" Obama would be the goofball in the corner sipping Smirnoff Ice from a straw and shouting "AAAAOOOOOOO Buuuuuuudy" because he finally got around to renting "Encino Man" on VHS...and he wants to talk about THAT.
The "remaking" of America he promised in his 2008 victory speech has been nothing more than the jamming of European laws and values down Uncle Sam's throat. And even they are cocking their heads in bemusement at this since neither side has the money to continue the lie that socialism works anymore.
Man I would love to have a chance to debate this guy...mano y teleprompter...I know I'm just a peon, but a six year old could deconstruct his arguments, so I think I can take him.
Why.....why does the GOP need new ideas? "New" ideas are getting us into this mess.
100 years ago 8 grades would cram into one school house and armed with a chalkboard and books (information boxes that don't need to be plugged into a wall) 8th graders were passing exams that today's college student with wifi laptops and wikipedia fail....because educators are always on the look out for...new....ideas...and not focusing on what WAS working.
"New ideas" is just a buzz word ploy to dishonestly characterize systems, such as capitalism, that actually work when they aren't being abused as in need of replacement. Isn't this the kind of "either your with us or against us" stuff that made liberals wet their pants suits when Bush was president?
What the is so damn great about NEW ideas anyway? What about GOOD ideas?.......
What about...."it wasn't broke, so stop fixing it."
Here's a good idea, how about the president and congress try reading the instruction manual that came with this government? Its a little bit longer than the Arizona Immigration Law that they refuse to look at...also, unfortunately for us, its not a new idea...
...but its a damn good one, and they ought to give it a try...
