How? Is it not true?

I hear people everyday say they are supporting Obama, and they can't explain why. I remember watching an Obama supporter on Fox News in one of Frank Luntz's focus groups, and he was asked what Obama has accomplished, and he said "He's a good speaker." You could hear Sean Hannity sighing in the background, as was I.
Get a clue. This is such a joke. Sean Hannity and others like him (Hugh Hewitt is even worse) do this all the time. He knows that most everyday Americans, put on the spot, with a microphone jabbed in their face, are not going to be able to answer a questions like this.

The truth is that Obama is a junior senator who was a member of the minority party for the bulk of his congressional career. There's just not going to be a long record of congressional achievement. Hannity knows this. It's why he asked the question.

But let's look at Obama's career in the state senate. In 8 years, he sponsored 780 bills, of which 280 were signed into law. 280.

But who cares? We don't elect presidents based on congressional achievement. If we did, somebody like Strom Thurmond would be president. And Dick Cheney, who during his 11 years in the House, sponsored TWO bills that passed, would never have even sniffed the White House.

Two.

Jesus did speak in parables in order to make the meaning more difficult to understand for stubborn people who didn't want anything to change, unless of course, it would align with their beliefs, expectations, and desires to make life easier for them. That sounds like Conservative ideology to me.

Obama has kids, Jesus did not. Unless there was more to the story.

Then I think you need to get out more.

People would do some crazy things to meet the people they admired. Diamond risked being arrested to meet Bono. People say all kinds of things, but most of the time they are just talking. You wouldn't have called Halle out if that line was about Bono, basketball player, or another actor... but your bias got in the way.

What would you do to meet Rush?

I wonder if Jesus came back to life
and tapped you on the shoulder if you would even recognize him.

Well, I think it was hyperbole, but ... this is the kind of thing that sometimes ends in PLEBA jokes around here. I think anyone who says things like that gets called out, to an extent.
