    It's truly odd watching former President Clinton try to sell the Dems on the compromised Tax program. I think Obama did a good job. I mean face it, it's only two years for the rich, and it opens the doors to get OTHER things done.

    are you familiar with the parable about the camel's nose under the tent flap?

    Well, to add, though, I think they need to make it illegal for senators to hold back votes or refuse to address legislation like the Reps are doing. It's akin to going to work and refusing to do your job, and I think they should be fired.

    Speaking of work, traditional filibusters should be required. Bernie Sanders is at least on the podium when he's doing his filibustering.

    Fine by me. Obama is a loser.

    I remember in the '90s under Clinton when employment was so high that for once the workers could call the shots, cuz if the employer gave them crap, they could leave. Of course, Business never wants that to happen again.

    Am I the only one who sees this as a major media blunder by Obama?

    Clinton stepped in there as if he was the President (again) and totally upstaged Obama.

    Plus, it makes Obama seem like he can't get the job done. Obama is the leader of the Democrat party, yet apparently he can't lead the party, and he has to turn to a former leader of the party to try and get the party in line.

    And the, at the end, when Obama left the press conference it symbolized him actually wanting to leave the Presidency and let Clinton have it again.

    Very, very weak.



    Some of the odd things people come up with.

    I was glad to see the Presidential support from Clinton.. Obama is the leader of the democratic party, but regardless, I think it prudent to
    have the most popular of the former presidents move to your defense.
    Good move.

    A sitting President has better things to do than to mollycoddle journalists, like catching up on what's happening in Korea. (And he should not keep his wife waiting either) icon_razz.gif

    CBS reports that most of the Congress people this was directed towards didn't even hear it, since they were traveling or out of town.

    You should be happy, SB. It's all about appearances for you.

    Interestingly, Clinton never spent that much time in the press conference room when he was president himself. He repeatedly delayed the last question from Gibbs (for half an hour) just to answer questions from journalists. I think he's being nostalgic.
