    Technically, he's right, Dr. Obama doesn't have the knowledge or the training to appropriately deal with it.

    Because, you know, they don't teach you how to perform bloody miracles in medical school.

    At least none that I know of.

    This is going to surprise you Sooner, but I get what he was saying.

    However, if the "patient" was already "dead" when the "EMT" (Obama) arrived, it's a shame we spent so much money while he used a defibrillator on a dead patient.

    Unless you don't think the patient was actually "dead" and that it just needed the right "treatment."

    Was the recovery act a good thing? Not big enough? Too big? Didn't matter because the economy was a "dead patient" anyway?

    Donny, do you believe that president wasted a ton of money and time passing legislation meant to spark a dead economy in his effort to perform a bloody miracle as you put it? Is it your opinion that all of Obama's attempts on the economy have been futile and a waste of resources and taxpayer dollars?

    It should be noted that while the EMT was trying to perform CPR, there were people in the background who stole his ambulance, took the batteries out of his defibrillator, and filled his IV bags with piss.

    The democrats who controlled the house and senate when Obama passed the Recovery act did those things? :eek:

    (I plan to rep you for that post because it made me laugh out loud. You'll have to wait until I pass around the points though!)

    Control is a relative term.

    Filibuster proof in the Senate and a large majority in the House. Big enough majorities to pass a healthcare reform bill that Republicans completely opposed with every political tool they had.

    I guess Obama needed a democrat to occupy every seat in the House and Senate for it to be enough votes for him to accomplish what he wanted?

    He still has roughly 18 months until he's been in office 4 years.

    Sean Hannity also jacks off to nude photos of Richard Nixon taking a dump on the U.S. Constitution.

    Filibuster proof for a few months if you count Lieberman, who proved on issue after issue that he couldn't be counted on....that's just the least of the tricky things about the Senate.

    From what I understand, Basso's level of intelligence and reasoning is well above that which we can understand and comprehend. I for one am thankful he's allowed us into a small part of his world.

    Blanche Lincoln and Ben Nelson were even more unreliable on things that mattered.

    The Democratic "supermajority" was a token one at best.

    I'm sure that's how congress in this term will be remembered... The omnipotent filibuster proof Democratic Powerhouse, doing everything they wanted, exactly as they wanted. Great point.

    basso's memory begins on Obama's Inaugeration Day. One of the things Repubs seem to forget is that Bush kept the wars off the books but Obama included them.
