All the usual suspects.
I see Obama’s two butt buddies Immelt(Who has done such a fantastic job with GE LOL) and Trumpka will be there..awwwwwwwwwww how cute
Sounds like we are going to see a parade of boo-hoo stories blaming "obstructionist Republicans" for the dysfunctions of communism.
I hope they don’t get there in a private jet or SUV!
If I was a Republican Congressman and Obama started hammering away with his blame game I would load myself up and get out of there. Walk right out the door.
1. A list of all those American heros that lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan since The Won.
2. A number representing all those lost jobs in each congressional district.
3. A number representing all those foreclosed houses in each congressional district.
Villaraigosa is there to see what his chances are if he mounts a primary challenge next year.
Interesting list, especially when compared to the list John Baehnor is having at his “Obama, you are so pathetic, I’m ignoring your speech” party.
See: http://www.speaker.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=258776 for a list of Baehnor’s attendees.
