(New York Magazine)   President Obama has expressed that he desires to "go Bulworth" and speak his mind about things rather than always speak in meaningless platitudes. While its a fun idea, here's why its a bad idea   (nymag.com) divider line 135

I don't see why he shouldn't at this point. He's not going to get his supermajority in 2014 necessary to pass things, and he's not up for election again. Let it fly.

Maybe he's worried he'll hurt his party in the next election if he does this.  I think he should.  It would be sooooo refreshing.

It would be fascinating - who knows how people would react? They might love him for it, though that's unlikely.

He seemed to come pretty damned close at this year's White House Correspondents Dinner.

"Some folks still don't think I spend enough time with Congress. 'Why don't you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?' they ask. Really? Why don't you get a drink with Mitch McConnell?"

What he meant is that he wants to bone the hell out of a 20-something Halle Berry.

Yo, everybody gonna get sick someday, but nobody knows how they gonna pay. Health care, managed care, HMOs, ain't gonna work, no sir, not those. 'Cause the thing that's the same in every one of these is these motherfarkers there, the insurance companies! You can call it single-payer or Canadian way, only socialized medicine will ever save the day! Come on now, lemme hear that dirty word - SOCIALISM!

I'd pay cash American to see host a meeting of McConnell and Boehner and deliver any of Samuel L. Jackson's speeches from "Pulp Fiction"

I was going to make a comment about how "going Bulworth" was the politician's "going Galt," but upon reflection, I'd argue that Congressional Republicans are basically "going Galt" as much as they can while keeping a paycheck... fark, that's depressing.

I think he should "go Dave" instead. But without the, you know, fake double.

I do kinda wish he would use that bully pulpit for ... you know, bullying. All of his opponents make him out to be some sort of monster anyway.

When he acts as if none of this bullshiat he's got to deal with upsets him, he appears disengaged.

Please do Mr President. A few moments of absolute candor ,especially in primetime could re-energize the Dems. The Wingnuts have no qualms about expressing their feelings. Why should you always be so restrained. It's time to fight. Hillary showed a little of it in her testimony to those bullies the other day and everyone loved it.

When you speak in meaningless platitudes, your audience fills in the blanks with the things they want to hear.  That's why you should keep doing it.

Hopefully he will not go "Batman Returns". I suspect that the public would not approve of nipples on the Obama-suit.

I've wanted him to be more like this since forever.

"The American people cannot afford Obamacare."

"N*gga, please."

He and Aaron Sorkin should get together and write it.

I think he should go to f*ckin war with the GOP.

Oh, you don't like my sh*t? The IRS audit was just the shot across the bow.

- Arrest Bush and Cheney for war crimes and send them to the Hague, or Malaysia.
- Have the FBI investigate money laundering and fraud by Congressional members, including insider trading after the STOCK act passed
- Close Gitmo
- Televise all meetings and correspondences between Congressional members and the President. I'm sorry, you want to talk to me? Do it in front of this camera. How's that for transparency?

- Start criminally prosecuting the big guys on Wall Street. Give the Justice Dept some teeth.- Investigate the Koch brothers and Adelson for illegal activities. Swarm those mutherf*ckers with sh*t.
- Spend time working on the 2014 election on the state and local level. Get the ground game going, put people in place. You have to have some left people from your 2012 campaign.

And stop bending over backward for the GOP at every step. Make their lives a living hell.
