Well...the R’pubs deserve bashing.... The whole bunch is as worthless as teats on a boar hog.
“All my new higher taxes I’m cramming down your throats are Bush’s fault! But soon you’ll lose your job, too, and then you can kiss my ass for food stamps and a free Obamaphone. Merry Ramadam and a festive Kwanza, stupid chumps!”
“For the last couple months....” you’ve done nothing, clown.
I bet the reason he left Hawaii early was NOT due to the fiscal cliff, but health reason: the MiL voted him off the island.
We should start a pool on how late he will be. 2:45 I say it will start at 3:15 pacific time.
Someone whispering off to the side bothered him. Rabbit ears...
The liar speaks. What a tool!
I wish he was The Late...
Lying through his teeth about where the economy is and where it’s going and why.
Without cutting spending raising taxes wont do jack S#$%
I refuse to hear the liar in chief speak. Hearing him talk makes me want to vomit and I got this fear of puking..Obama can’t help lying, he’s been lying since the day he was born
Sounds like the onus is going to be on Reid to get something they can vote on.
[Reid has been the obstructionist for years.]
Correct title head prick to lie and blame others at 6:PM hes always late.
“Nobody gets 100%...” (except me)
Thank you for correcting me.
I just watched the arrogant bastard. People actually voted for that dumbass?
Yea, it is shocking when you actually hear the idiot speak.
