My goodness. This is what I hope to teach my students about giving a speech.
He was crisp, didn’t let the applause stomp on his words and took it to the people who have been behaving badly. (I want to know who the knuckhead that shouted ‘lie’ is. If it is a congress member, then that is just shameful. We’re not in the UK, you know.)
I’m glad I recorded this one. It’s keeper.
I watched it on ABC — don’t usually watch that channel — now I know why. What crap is on my teevee now — some sort of clutz show. Good god.
The dickweed who screamed “you lie” at President Obama was dickweed Joe Wilson from South Carolina. A state with ridiculously high unemployment and a governor who is still in office after disgracing himself by trying to make a big deal about not taking stimulus money while being a family values politician while forgetting he has a family. What a sorry state. (via TPM)
The disrespect and deliberate attempts at humiliation attempted by elected and GOP officials towards this president — with no merit whatsoever — is amazing. Let alone the constant pounding he has taken on all of the airwaves. That he is still standing, dignified, is a monument to what we all have been working toward. Progressives had better get behind this man. He’s the best leader we’ve had in a long time. He has a stronger spine than most in that body.
Wingnuts win again on local news. The dickweed gets publicity and the response gets more air than the president.
They are more focused on the Aggie bonfire.
It’s almost useless to try to reason with people here. The local news is oh so very conservative while the population isn’t.
I’m out. To think that today the topic on wingnut radio was who is more influential Michael Vick or the president. As many of my students answer, I say yes.
