I just now saw this thread and I missed the speech (out in the snow with my family) but I think it goes back to a feeling that too many people have that the President is some kind of father who needs to personally take care of us. Recently Charles Barkley (yeah, I know) was asked about the importance of the job and he said that the president really doesn't have that much affect on our day to day lives and we should try to take care of ourselves more. The interviewer was shocked and ask him if he really believed that because, after all, we are talking about the leader of the free world. He stood by his comments and said that his job is not the see all be all for our day to day lives.

Charles is right. Obama can not save us from every problem and he seems to try to point that out with his own speeches. Yet it seems many are not listening...instead hoping he can wave some kind of magic wand and save us.

Did he then throw the interviewer out a bar window? lol

Part of fixing the country is making it feel better about itself. See Ronald Reagan 1980. We need to get our minds right and today is a good start.

Now the Bush is taking off and leaving - where's the banner for Obama and Biden to unfurl - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Don't give Olbermann ideas.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
