The health care fight is coming to a head. We’re in the 15th round, and the health care summit to be followed by budget reconciliation is Obama’s desperate attempt to land a one-two knockout punch because he is down on points.

Now is not the time to mince words.

On February 28, 2009, Barack Obama gave a weekly address regarding his proposed massive budget in which Obama ramped up his attack on lobbyists:

I know these steps won’t sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business, and I know they’re gearing...

I will not react in haste. I will wait until TOTUS passes judgment, and tells us how to react.

Oh TOTUS, wherefore art thou TOTUS when we need you most?

Please call it “The People’s Teleprompter” or something like that.

And make them go away so I don’t have to shut off the entire...

Why is Obama calling the 2-3 foot snowfall in Washington, D.C. “Snowmaggeden“?

In keeping with one of Obama’s favorite lines repeated in his speeches, Obama should be saying:

“This is the worst snowfall since the Great Depression.”

In early November 2008, when gay activists were mounting a fundraising boycott of the Democratic National Committee, Barney Frank announced that a provision repealing the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy would be attached to the defense appropriations bill to be voted on in the spring or summer of 2010.

During the State of the Union address, Barack Obama singled out the Supreme Court for ridicule on its recent campaign finance ruling, which Obama asserted could open the door for foreign campaign contributions:

With all due deference to separation of powers, last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law...

From The Gail Collins (yes, again):

Looking out at the motley crew seated before him for the big speech, the president seemed at times to be pretending that he had never seen these people before in his life.

The stupid meme of the day is that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito was “rude” to Obama during the State of the Union address because Alito grimaced and mouthed the words “not true” when Obama stoked the crowd with a lie about a recent Supreme Court decision:

State of the Union speeches regularly infuriate the opposing party, and to that extent Barack Obama met and exceeded expectations last night.

One aspect of the speech deservedly is receiving most attention: The crude attempt to intimidate the Supreme Court in front of the Congress and the nation. Here’s the relevant text:

I’ll leave it to others to do the fact check. Here’s my first impression of the State of the Union speech tonight:

This was a small speech. A lot of petty pot shots, including at the Supreme Court. Very Nixonian, in that regard.

The verbiage was anything but soaring. The joke about root...

There still is time to input new text into the teleprompter for tonight’s State of the Union address.

After throwing the Venezuelan people under the bus at the Summit of the Americas last April, now would be a good time for Barack Obama to give the people of Venezuela support as Hugo...
