The teleprompter is expected to prompt stuff about the debt ceiling or something or another momentarily. Nobody really knows or cares. Readers can follow it here.

His speech is also impaired. More so than usual.

Look at Obama, or Bush I or II, or Clinton, or Nixon, or Truman...

...what do you see?

American ineptness, not exceptionalism is what we should all see.

And I'm not talking about the aforementioned presidents but the sad reality that has become the mass psyche of the American Populace.

C'mon, we all know that it's true.

I often lash out bitterly and angrily, while commenting on how the criminals have taken over the institutions of our government, and this true. But I should always add the caveat "because we let them."

Some will argue that it was predetermined that the criminals would have taken over, and they would have cited the creation of the 3rd central private bank of the United States, the non-Federal Reserve, in 1910 (legally recognized in 1913) as a prime example.

This is a good rebuttal. But we've had a long time and the words and warnings of many knowledgeable people with integrity to reflect upon this type of malfeasance, yet we've done nothing about it, collectively.

I see Amerika, once known as America, definitely continuing down that rich man-poor man path that all Empires ultimately seem inclined to take.

The road less traveled would mean a lot more short term pain, sacrifice and stress, but it would possibly restore some integrity to the system and refocus our children on the good, productive and truly useful side of capitalism and free markets - but it would mean a bitter, bloody fight that I just don't think many Americans are up to the task for.

On top of all of this, any such revival would require a true leader to shake Americans from their slumber and motivate them and remind them of what we are letting slip through our grasp, and who and where is this person?

Where? Who?

Weinerdog - what a wonderful specimen of the ignorant American electorate you are. You're not clued up to Obummas radical left beliefs reading that sugary piece of shit, his autobiography you know?

Obumma was one of Saul Alinsky’s (a 60's radical leftie loon) most prominent followers and admirers, never knowing him personally, but a practitioner of his methods. Alinksky's book, ‘Rules for Radicals’ – a book he dedicated to Lucifer is all about deception, the goal to destroy the American system of Govt by any and all means. Alinsky gathered his dumb-arsed followers with the “social change” adage while Obumma used 'Change You Can Believe In'

Alinksy was a Chicago community organiser, in fact "the father of community organizing". Obumma was a Chicago community organiser.

In a letter to the editor of The Boston Globe published on August 31, 2008, Alinsky's son David gushed about how well Obama had learned his father's teachings. He wrote, "The Democratic National Convention had all the elements of the perfectly organized event, Saul Alinsky style. Barack Obama's training in Chicago by the great community organizers is showing its effectiveness. When executed meticulously and thoughtfully, it is a powerful strategy for initiating change and making it really happen. Obama learned his lesson well."

Ryan Lizza reported in The New Republic, "When [Obama] announced his candidacy for president last month, he said the 'best education' he ever had was not his undergraduate years at Occidental and Columbia or even his time at Harvard Law School, but rather the four years he spent in the mid-'80s learning the science of community organizing in Chicago." Obama has repeated this comment in several stump speeches. 

At the heart of the Alinsky method is the concept of 'agitation' - making someone angry enough about the rotten state of his life that he agrees to take action to change it; or, as Alinsky himself described the job, to 'rub raw the sores of discontent.

Obumas connections with radical fruitcakes include America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright, unrepentant terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn and Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan. Obumma has also filled his 52 Czar (crony) positions with a nice collection of radical lefties and communists not to mention a key sponsor, lifetime socialist George Soros. 

By "closet Marxist" i mean progressives believe in communism by progressive (where they get their name) steps. Baby steps (subtle un-noticed deceipt) toward communism rather than an all-out revolution. Progressives have gained control of Comgress before, they left the same fuking bankrupt shambles behind their ignorant worthless ideological arses as will be Obummas assured legacy

There's more to fill the vast vacuum between your ears (a lefty genetic trait) but go Google you lazy toad and do some research (work) for once

Didn't say that at all, but how nice of you to jump to the defense of the scumbag via an offensive and illustrate my point. The rich get richer and the poor poorer under both current faces of the same party, just faster when the demoncrats have control. Doesn't mean the republicans are a lot better, just kind of like the tallest midget type of thing.

And even worse, you wear your bigotry like its some idiotic medal of honour; though I suppose that suits you, caged albino rat that you are. You just love to play the victim, don't you?

And yah shit while it may be entirely irrelevant to this thread, I am not at all surprised that you view anyone from any country other than America as 'stupid' because you somehow believe that every last citizen of those god-forsaken lands voted in an international unicorn referendum responsible for awarding Obama a peace prize. What a heroic point you've made grand wizard trav; though you must admit that it is not quite as sharp as the one on your hoody-hat, or maybe that is just the 'natural' shape of your head? Neither would surprise me.

Now, more to the point, can you find a single thing I've written on this thread, or any other for that matter, in support of Obama?

Ans. Of course not. So blow me if you enjoy reading blatantly partisan politics when it is painfully obvious that the only diff between the demublicans is the rhetoric.

Teleprompter Man strikes again!

Why does he never say anything about arresting malfeasant bankers?

Oh, right, they funded his campaign.

Say that again Mr. Teleprompter POTUS?  Trade agreements?  Easier patents?  Tax cuts?  CONgress needs to act?  Really?  So what in the hell are you having a press conference for?  $4 Trillion in savings or spending cuts? 

Isn't that less than we gave to the banks and insurance companies and Wall Street via bailouts and the FED backdoor and POMO, TALF, TARP, QE I and QE II?

"Tough decisions and balanced solutions" OMFG, more platitudes.

Yes, it is the evil corporate jets that are responsible for the pain the middle class is suffering.  As Obamaramalamadingdong just said...those rich republicans can keep their evil corporate jets but they'll just have to pay a little more or else there will be no air safety, weather service, or safe food to eat, and just what kind of evil corporate jet flight experience would you have if there was no weather service or safe food to eat on board?

Sounds like a really strong argument to me...

If every american just gave a dollar a day to ensure food safety and good weather reports then we wouldn't have this problem now would we?

SD1, don't sweat Robo.  He is merely pointing out the short-covering that is going on.  I suspect that he is ALMOST as shocked as the rest of us when looking at the action in certain stocks today.  Robo will always trumpet Cramer's mantra; "There is always a bull market somewhere..." 

Everyone who follows ZH on a regular basis has value even if some of us see things through slightly (or massively) different paradigms.  Robo is not a ZH approved contributor for nothing.
