Wow, I didn't know Mikeyy got his news from a comedian.

How's this for a 'New Rule",
Try getting your news from an actual reporter, not some jackleg with an agenda to push.
Kinda hard to find actual news reporters these days, but some still exist. They're slightly more common than unicorns and slighty more rare than albino alligators.

P.S.
President Obama failed miserably at producing "shovel ready" jobs AKA US infrastructure jobs. Chances are, President Trump will follow in his footsteps.

So you missed the point because you chose to. It's not getting your news from a comedian. It's getting commentary from one. Like someone would have from Will Rogers, Mark Twain or Groucho Marx. It was completely accurate.

Evidently, you missed my point. RE news.
Carry on.

Obama is no longer President.

The End.

Liberals complained when Trump criticized judges for ruling against his travel ban on a handful of ISIS infested countries when liberals themselves have complained about Citizens United and other supreme court cases they did not agree with. Heck libs criticized Trump over a travel ban of some of those countries while ignoring the fact Obama did the same thing.

Getting your political commentary from a commedIan reduces your remarks to a joke. The new rule counts on the ignorance of fans like the King of the Ignore List. Despite the long history of politicians of touting public works when Obama mentioned it in a speech he magically appropriated it for all time going forward. Anyone who points out the stupidity of the so-called new rule is of course a racist.

Your comment on getting news from a comedian is a tired and boring propagandic phrase that lacks originality and accuracy.
This is in the "Open Discussion" section. And the point is to talk about Marr's comments on "What if Obama Said It?"

Without surprise, you and many of the Repubs have chosen to obfuscate the point involved.
Probably because you guys have no intelligible reply to the hypocrisy exposed...

If only you were so vocal in all the threads where Repubs try to immediately try to obfuscate observations on Trump to complaining about Obama.

Either you didn't get the point or you also are wanting to obfuscate the point for your home team.
There has been a LOT crap that Trump has said that if Obama has said Repubs would be freakin' out about. But for Repubs, it's their boy in office and these standards went out the door the second Obama did...

To spell it out explicitly, this thread isn't really about Obama.
It's about the REPUBS who lack a moral center so that if their guy says it, it doesn't matter.
But if a DEM says it, it's the worst thing ever...

And it plays both ways, I believe just about everybody acknowledges that.

Republicans as well as Democrats haze the 'morals' on their favored politician, but to say Republicans 'lack a moral center'? Hyperbole at it's best.

One would think you'd have figured out by now that I don't have a home team.
