Hot Video of Obama Making Fake Promises and GOP Talking Points

The deficit is ... fascinating.Did you miss Obama’s big speech about how America is the Number One country in terms of vitriol, idiocy, obesity and unemployment? Well you will want to savor it, the way an out-of-work man savors the Honor of a president diligently working to, uh, destroy health and environmental regulations while, uh, reducing the federal deficit.

Oh wait, is that not it? Happy 45th Birthday, Star Trek! And Happy Third or Fifth Term to Bush Junior or Clinton or both, we guess. LET’S REFORM WELFARE OR SOMETHING, fucking poors ….

      Weren't most of the real assholes playing hooky? Or maybe they were watching football on their (not so) smart phones.

  1. Texan_Bulldog

    So THAT'S what Uhura & Spock's love child would have looked like!

    I thought Barry rocked it tonight–but I've had a few adult beverages.

    1. Pristine_ODummy

      I've only had infant beverages, and I still thought Barry rocked it.

      So, is it true that Uhura and Spock were Barry's REAL parents, and he IS an alien after all, although from a different planet?

    2. Nothingisamiss

      He did rock it. Ken's pretty much right about everything, but Barry rocked it. Gawd….let's hope he keeps going. I loved it.

  2. DustBowlBlues

    I'd feel better if I hadn't watched Elliott Spitzer on Countdown. If he can't have any political fun, he doesn't want any of the rest to have any, either.

    1. OneDollarJuana

      Back in the '60s styrofoam was a godsend, not an environomental hazard. LOTS of styrofoam boulders on the original Star Trek.

    1. ThundercatHo

      That would be the best possible outcome. Is the prototype warp engine ready to go or do we need to wait for WWIII?

    1. Chichikovovich

      Well, if the gubbment would just get the hell out of the way John Galt could build his perpetual motion machine. But no, Obummer and his Demonrats won't give up their so-called "Laws" of "Thermodynamics".

    2. OneDollarJuana

      dunno. With mMost Republican jobs machines you put good 'Murican jobs in the top and you get little Chinese, albeit very shiny, jobs outa the bottom.

    3. Pristine_ODummy

      I don't think you heard him right. I think he meant "Job machine," as in the Bible. You know, something to make you suffer as you are reduced to a lifetime of poverty and scraping your sores with potsherds and that kinda stuff.

  3. Trinket

    I dunno, I liked it. Either the repubs will have to go along with it, and it will work, and Obama will look good by election time, or they'll vote against it, and the dems can yell "Repubs don't want you to have a job!" until election time.

    1. KenLayIsAlive

      He can do that, or he can do what he's always done, which is to set up some grand scheme, and then back peddle until all that remains is a feeble, worthless, right wing bill.

      I'm not being a downer and saying he will do that, but I am saying:

      Which is it going to be, Mr. President? We're watching really closely.

      1. io9k9s

        Well I'll be a downer, becasuse it's all tied up in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded and the pitch count at 0-3. Mr. President, on the mound, has been shrugging off his catcher, Congressional Dems, all night – so even if he doesn't tip his pitch (like he has been doing since Day Fucking One) – Dems is pulling a Crash Davis just to say I told you so – and really who can blame them. We are screwed.

  4. OC_Surf_Serf

    I dunno if its my cheapo monitor or the tasty weed but Biden, Barry, and Boehner sure had the hues of some Neapolitan ice cream…

    1. Pristine_ODummy

      Were you seeing them in, like, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry? Because that's just the weed talking.

    1. finallyhappy

      He is really fat now- and an asshole- but I understand from people who knew him and know him- he always was

    1. Texan_Bulldog

      Khan!!!!!!!!!!!

      (Sorry, kind of a Star Trek geek–but only the original; could care less about the new generations, etc.)

    1. ThundercatHo

      Sorry Chill, but Star Trek is way to cerebral for those shitbags. Hell, the Beverly Hillbillies probably makes them all go blasting holes in their backyards. Why do you think Jethro is the new GOP frontrunner?

      1. Chillwaver

        Oh, crap…I guess you've got a point. Besides, come to think of it, my old man is a fan as well. There has to be at least a shitty si-fy channel show we can name them after…

        1. Biel_ze_Bubba

          Even the shittiest Sci-Fi is way too cerebral. Unless you want to assign them the role of a particularly boorish species, like Morlocks.

      1. jus_wonderin

        "Risk! Risk is our business! That's what the starship is all about! That's…why…we're…a..board..her!"

        Since '71 here as well.

  5. BklynIlluminati

    If the R's balk on this he should hammer them every they on every network every press release, just keep repeating the mantra of see they don't want to help just be obstructionists they want the ship to go down. Beat that shit like a drum

  6. SayItWithWookies

    I'm not watching that video if it's just a human fighting against a slow, brain-damaged but disproportionately strong venomous freak in a lizard suit.

    I might watch the Star Trek video, though.

  7. smitallica

    If he's not a stereotypical Angry Black Man® by now, he truly is Spock. Cuz these teabag motherfuckers make me want to punch everything I see.

    1. Pristine_ODummy

      No matter how angry you might be, if you're not white, you learn to keep that shit to yourself right soon, unless you *wanna* get your ass beat and thrown in the local hoosegow … repeatedly.

  8. ThundercatHo

    Is this like one of those terrorist how-to videos on how to make gunpowder? I don't know how appropriate it is to show this on the 9/11 anniversary. Next thing you know TSA is gonna be checking us for hollow logs, rocks and colored powders.

      1. DustBowlBlues

        I listened to Kos, and he sounded like he was saying the same old thing about not asking for enough in the first place, yada, yada. He missed the political challenge in the speech.

        1. OneDollarJuana

          Sam Seder just had a couple of excerpts from FDR and Huey Long speeches. I heard the "challenge" in O's speech, but those guys in the past challenged, challenged again, then drove it home with a 2×4 just to make sure you were paying attention. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) we are fast approaching the day when any subtlety is useless, and speaking strongly with a very big stick is the only appropriate approach.

    Oh, and regarding Senator Diapers' complaint about missing his Saints party? Green Bay is up 21 – 7 in the 2nd quarter. Never mind that I'm from Pittsburgh: tonight, we are all Packers fans…

  10. politics_nerd

    I havent seen the speech, nor did I watch the Nos debate yesterday. That having been said, how about these fuckin Packers!?

          1. Spurning Beer

            from the captioning log:

            It is said …
            thy Vulcan blood is thin.
            Are thee Vulcan …
            or are thee human?

            Prissy, I assume your core competency here is in Elizabethan English or some such, not Vulcan or its rendering into TV English, which seems to be more like Quaker plain speaking than the KJB.

            Or are you saying that being difficult is your core competency? If so, I grieve with thee. (T'Pao, Amok Time)

          2. Pristine_ODummy

            Being difficult, of course, Spurning.

            It's such a delight watching the nerds whip out this … dialogue, though. It's been ages since I've actually watched the series.

  11. owhatever

    The Republicans will respond "fat chance," and my President will cave because we got no power down here, Captain.

  12. mavenmaven

    Tomorrow Palin or Perry will say some stupid reactionary thing and this will all be forgotten by the commentators and pundits.

    1. KenLayIsAlive

      Worse yet, it looks like some phoney terror attack is what pushed it off. No wonder Obama wanted to do the speech earlier. Oh, but he got bullied into moving it. Derp.

  13. powersuit

    That's a nice wetsuit Gorn is wearing. Maybe I can borrow it for my next race.

    When the prez was entering the chamber before the speech, I kept hoping he would turn around and lay a roundhouse on Eric Cantor's face. That would have been sweet!

    1. jus_wonderin

      I believe in the new timeline "All that you knew is gone."

    Don't know about Star Trek, but I feel like I've been living in the Twilight Zone for the last ten years.
