    Denial is the liberal way these days. It's Ok not to see what is in front of your nose. That way you can always be politically correct and shit can your beliefs.

    Yep.

    Respect is earned.

    Mr. Obama constantly jabs and insults his "enemies" in the congress.

    He has been very partisan in his rhetoric from the beginning.

    While I respect the "Office" of the POTUS...I no longer respect the man.

    Therefor, given the opportunity (and considering the dry and wandering nature of his rambling say-nothing speech) I imagine I would have walked out or started a rousing game of solitaire on my phone.

    @AntiPorcheria I'll bite. If walking out on the President during his State of Union address, in front of the whole nation and world isn't disrespectful to the office of the President, then what is?

    @Poltal my question is: if walking out on the President during his State of the Union address doesn't constitute disrespecting the office of the President, what does? Nothing but crickets.

    @PauldenZangpo you cannot reason with conservatives they simply do not posses the thought processes to make such cognitive associations.

    The honorable Mr. Stockman should consider a run for President. He's got the right stuff, at least for the lunatic fringe and just might be the best Republicans have to offer.,

    After hearing three of the four "official" GOP replies to the SOTU, I both dread, and can't wait to see, what happens next with the Republican Party. I've never seen any political party in such disarray.

    He's paid to be there so if he can walk out and still get paid where do I sign up because some days I'd love to just walk out my office for the rest of the day after some of the crap I deal with.

    Its a bad move on his part too since he basically showed that unless he agrees with you he won't even hear what you have to say. This is the type of politician we need rid of.

    @CandleJack Obama's paid to defend the Constitution of the United States, too. He's not the legislature of this nation...whether he likes it or not, there are checks and balances for a reason. And he is the personification of that reason.

    Sitting next to Michelle Obama was a wounded warrior with 10 deployments, who in all probability shares the politics of those on the right. A man who while crippled from an IED blast, rose to his feet and saluted the Commander-in-Chief. Too often people like this Representative disrespect the man and the office. Yourself included.

    @PauldenZangpo

    It is no disrespect to the office of the president, when we criticize the current occupant of that position when he so often disregards the people, the Congress, and The Constitution. Quite to the contrary. In a democratic Republic as America is, it is essential to the preservation of the Republic to call out a president when he is negligent in his duty to "Preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

    @cdman rising to your feet when an officer enters the room is respecting the chain of command. Doing so after being in a coma and with the help of a walker is not at all required or expected. This Representative disrespected the office and the man.

    President Obama is just tired of the G.O.P. games. Every turn the Republicans refuse to work with the President. They won't even support their own ideas if Obama gets on board with them .
    As far as using Executive powers, his immediate predecessors have all issued more Executive orders than Obama.
  • #51

    But did they do it by threat? No. Obama is just trying to push Congress, and therefore the American people, out of the way and rule by Executive Order.

    @ACTSmom
    Threat? Or warning?
    If it's a threat, then it's the same for any and all Presidents, spoken or unspoken.
    I for one am glad. The Republicans, and sometimes Democrats, have been standing in the way of progress long enough.
    Personally, I think the Tea Party is the biggest nail in the tire. The G.O.P. should divorce themselves from them and the Tea Party should be a stand alone political party.

    Bullshit! Congress is an extension and representation of the people. Obama is not. Congress passes laws with the senate. Obama does not represent anyone but himself.

    @MadAmerican
    And Congress has a lower approval rating than Obama.
    I don't entirely disagree with you. But again, Obama has used Executive Orders less than his 8 predecessors. Perhaps we should have ended it long, long ago. And perhaps Congress should start doing its job.

    There is no "threat" involved. Claiming that Obama is trying to "rule by Executive Order" is nuts.

    if there is any reason to it should be done. what reason would there be not to if he has done anything that would legally call for it? after all is it not their jobs?

    Once again the republicans response fell short because no one is talking about it .They're all talking about Michael Grimm instead...Wow , four responses and it's Grimm that managed to be the topic of discussion.Oh well better luck next time.

    Maybe if the republicans had had someone we'd heard of, they would be talking about it. I'm not sure how they pick those who will respond, but it should be someone whose name is halfway familiar.
  • #159

    MSNBC was going on and on about that. Much ado over nothing ... Grimm apologized and invited the reporter to lunch. This is not a news story, it's "bread and circuses" to distract us from any real issue or event. All corporate owned media does this.

    I saw the official GOP response, and she basically talked a lot and said nothing at all. Rand Paul was his usual sometimes amusing but always loony self, and actually said a couple of things that made sense. The Tea Party response, though, was really out there. I think there was a fourth one, in Spanish I believe. The GOP is so dysfunctional right now. Pathetic.

    @ACTSmom - Beyond familiarity, it would also be helpful if they actually said something noteworthy. Ms. Rodgers seems like a nice woman, but her speech was overly rehearsed and probably recorded before the SOTU. She said nothing about any of Obama's statements except some general things like "Tonight, the President talked about [blank] " fill in the blank with Obamacare, poverty, education, or another currently hot issue. There was no substance to her speech, it was disappointing.

    The GOTP once again shows how juvenile it is. Between Stockman and Mann, they are the prime examples of why it's called the Party of Stupid and Ignorance.

    I don't know about ya'll (my Texas drawl) but this is truly GREAT entertainment. Is there a "Fool of the Day" contest that I don't know about?? I would encourage Stockman to bring it on. Start the impeachment process, Toots! Throw the political dice and see where it gets you. I'll get the popcorn.

    he wasnt wrong to walk out, he just was wrong for the reasons. I'd still like to now what grounds he think he has for impeachment.
  • #125

    If I were there as a senator and was hearing words from our president that completely disgusted me and were against our constitution, I would have walked out too. As for his tweet, we all know that he did not mean that he could impeach Obama on his own. He meant trying to get the ball rolling on impeachment proceedings. He also does have a vote into impeaching Obama and to find him guilty at the end of the impeachment. This article's author seems to think we are stupid enough to believe what he/she wrote about impeaching Obama on his own. I don't take kindly to an author writing in such a way as to insult the readers intelligence!

    I think that Obama is and has acted in a manner that shows nothing but disrespect for the constitution and it he continues I expect that he will face impeachment. He has no respect for the laws of the United States and seems to feel that he can pick and choose which laws he will enforce.

    I say let's wait and see how many signatures he gets... and maybe that laughing boy idiot in the White House will have an attitude adjustment if he does get a couple hundred thousand signatures...eff Obama.
