I have been watching the debacle in Ohio today and this is all I got out of it...
If it wasn't for me, I wouldn't be here today.
If it wasn't for me, I could have been someplace else.
If it wasn't for me, I should have been talking someplace else about somethng else.
Obama. An economic asshole.
He wants to charge banks a "TAX" to get money back from the American People that we ripped off in the first place and we will get it back by the banks passing the "TAX" onto their customers. Fair? If you are a marxist-sociopath, yes.
Obama. A blithering moron. A community organizer. Why doesn't this prima donna asswipe just resign so he can go back to this blithering waste of a time in the south side of Chicago?

It just wrapped up so I'm testing the better late than never theory but it was...awful. The speech was disjointed, flat in a lot of spots and just, well, a mess. If this Obama ran in 08 McCain (or Hillary) would have beaten him. Easily.
At one point Obama said, "here in Michigan" alas it was in Ohio. No problem though, it's not like those two states are rivals or anything.
Then it got really bad.
The Q&A was filled with questions one would expect more for a mayor or city council candidate and he didn't hand them well.
Jim Geraghty was watching too.
I was left with a bit of sympathy for President Obama, as questioner after questioner asked about their own specific concerns, often way out of the president's duties, responsibilities, and realm of expertise: one guy was an inventor who wanted to give him a sales pitch, one woman lamented the impatience of the American people before complaining about a slow response from the state environmental agency over her toddler's lead poisoning, one guy wanted to read the president a poem, a woman who talked about the problem of finding students for her truck driving school, an old lady who was upset that her Social Security didn't have a cost-of-living-increase, and a guy who had the patent for some wind turbine issue that was in a fight with some company about. One poor soul raised his hand and just wanted to shake Obama's hand.
I was Twittering (Tweating?) during it and at one point my feeling was that if this were a fight, the Ref would have stopped it. It went on so long and was so rambling that the props people in the background looked they wanted to make a break for it. One guy pulled out a Blackberry and started checking email or something.
In some ways this was like therapy session for Obama. He seems absolutely overwhelmed by the job and the fact that his Awesomeness simply hasn't translated to this job.
The State of the Union on Wednesday is going to be very interesting.
I told you it was bad...
