View Full Version : Dear leader's Freudian slip ...

One cannot have one's bluff called unless one is bluffing.

In a game of high stakes poker, Obama holds no cards.

Will Boehner and company act like men and face down the pharaoh ... or will they turn into republichicken girlie men as Dennis Hastert so often did.

I wish Cantor would stare him down and say "Mr President, it's time to eat your peas."

The left's godking exposes himself as a whiny little spoiled child. (http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/171403-obama-warns-cantor-dont-call-my-bluff-in-debt-talks)

Alinsky-style ridicule.

Effective, but only when used sparingly. Demerits and thumbs down when it's overused.

You are a one-trick pony. Since all have seen the act, it grows more than stale.

It seems my aim is zeroed in.

On your own feet, true dat.

I think you're more effective when you play it straight and leave your stale bag of rhetorical tricks home.

Of course, being effective is a relative concept, and you may have no interest in being effective in whatever way it's meant.
