President Obama Schools Republicans

I could not imagine any other politician in the World doing this anywhere. Some are comparing it to PM’s Question Time, but that is a short largely scripted event. This was not.

For Prime Minister’s Question Time to get anywhere near this, the whole of the Labour Party would have to leave Parliament, the procedural questions would have to go and the event would have to be twice as long.

This event killed the TOTUS meme Republicans were pushing. Notice the lack of one.

This was the House Republican Party 140 to 1 against the President.

It is highly unlikely that you will ever see the like of this again.

This is political debating at its finest, great television too so far removed from the scripted talking points of the prepared format Presidential debates that they do not even compare and the Republicans handed it to Barack Obama on a silver platter.

As far as must see tv, that is unlikely to ever be repeated, for any student of politics this is up there with the moon landing.

    The only guy I remember pulling off this sort of thing on a regular basis was Harold Washington, but he was much more of a scrapper.

    “For Prime Minister’s Question Time to get anywhere near this, the whole of the Labour Party would have to leave Parliament, the procedural questions would have to go and the event would have to be twice as long.”
    Good point, I hadn’t thought of that. I used to watch question time religiously for a while, it was more enjoyable before Blair decided to surgically implant his nose up Bush’s anal cavity.

      Well done for pointing out facts to the New Palin Agenda PUMA blog about Daily Kos.

      I love the concern she shows for the safety of women by joining in at Hatebuzz. Safety for women? For Siskind that only seems to apply if you support Palin Agenda.

      Anti sexism? To Siskind it is of no relevance that the sites she promotes are full of sexist hatred.
