    Listen to POTUS talk, then listen to the Tea Republicans talk. Listen to John Boehner. See the difference, Republicans don’t talk about solving problems for the people, all you hear from them is hate for this President. Because that is all their base care about. But we Dems want problems solve. We want jobs, healthcare, increase in our wages, unemployment benefits for people who lost their jobs, equal pay.

      POTUS is speaking the truth about this B.S. from the media talking about both side is guilty of the gridlock in Washington. The blame lies with the Tea Republicans and the media knows that too.

        I think it is disgusting how this same media rarely if ever go after the Republicans Governors for keeping millions of Americans from having health insurance.

    President Obama is keeping it real with poignant personal stories. He ticked off all of the accomplishments since 2009. Now he is breaking it down about GOP intransigence and obstruction. Making the clear distinction between Democrats and Republicans. He’s on fire. He’s bringing it on home and letting it rip. Love it.

    This President should be called the Taming. He tames even those coming to heckle him. And what is it with that heckler??? We all know about this border nightmare and the humanitarian crisis going on. Why heckle???

      If I was that heckler, I would not want a private conversation with a man who is as Fired up PBO is at this moment.

        July 10, 2014 at 2:36 pm

        What do you want to bet Mr. Heckler doesn’t have half the facts PBO has on the issue? He might have belligerence, but it would surprise me if he could maintain an intelligent conversation with PBO, with good arguments for whatever positions he holds.

        • 43 GGail
          July 10, 2014 at 2:40 pm

          Exactly vc. PBO is gonna make him feel about 1/2 inch tall when the conversation is over.

            No, unfortunately IMO, PBO won’t. That’s not his style. I see PBO listening, finding a smidgen of truth in the ill-mannered idiot’s arguments, patting him on the shoulder psychologically for his involvement, before, maybe, giving him some truth.

    I love him. He is running for nothing.. the reason no one can hold a candle to his speaking, is because his whole cause has always been to empower us.. he is still pushing us to stand up to realize and to utilize our power.

      That’s how I feel, too. This man brings me to tears, which i probably should be embarrassed about.

      I especially appreciated the quote from The Departed and I’m guessing Mark Wahlberg and Martin Scorsese have heard about it by now. Sensational use by the President of a quote from our popular culture.

    Now I will not listen to any of these pundits, not for them to talk about everything but the message POTUS was talking about. I don’t want to hear them talk about how he look tired, he look defeated. None of that media B.S. Not today. Our only hope is November get our butts out to vote. America only hope is vote those racists sick ass radical extreme Tea Republicans out .

    WOW! What a speech, at this point in time President Obama is just clowning the Republicans. To see him laugh at their asses is a sight to behold. See, most white men in power have never had a black man ridicule and mock them to their faces.

    I have been puzzling over why everything is deemed PBO’s “Katrina”. At least 1833 Americans died when GWB’s incompetence allowed an American city to drown, yet they are never mentioned when the Katrina analogies are spewed by the msm. Then it hit me, to the pundit class the main issue with Katrina was the political hit GWB suffered because of his incompetence, not the resulting loss of human life. To the pundit class, the mainly poor, mainly minority people who perished don’t count (due to issues of race and class). Their deaths are merely points on the left side of the political scorecard. The pain of their surviving family members don’t matter to these evil, hateful, racist people so long as cheap political points can be scored against PBO. When a website glitch can be cavalierly equated with Katrina, I think it is clear how inhuman much of the pundit class is and how little respect they have for their poorer, darker hued countrymen. Think about this the next time your favorite pundit uses the Katrina analogy. These people are not our friends.

    As I said yesterday it is easy to understand why the Media will not show most of POTUS’s speeches.
    If all Americans watched today’s speech it would be “Game over” for the GOP.
    It is already just about Game over, but the Media’s undeerstanding is lagging behind events—-as usual.

    PBO all but said “You know I am doing good things for ordinary Americans. Folks just like you.
    Is your only issue with me the color of my skin? really?”
    Maybe you want to reconsider your views? “

    • July 10, 2014 at 3:12 pm

      “…it is easy to understand why the Media will not show most of POTUS’s speeches…”

      I agree Vicki. This way, they can pull out the parts they can use to fit their agenda.

      I bet the only thing the MSM will highlight from this speech is the hecklers.
