President Obama Walks Into The Lion's Den

Two days after his State of the Union address, which in part was to tell everybody "chill the fuck out. I got this!" President Obama went to the annual Republican House of Representatives retreat to square off with them 141 on 1.

That's right! He went into a room full of republicans by himself and let them take their best shots at him. Answered all their questions on health care, jobs, and terrorism among other things and put 'em all in check.

You think George Bush woulda had the balls to do that?

Lock himself in a room full of Democrats (with live TV cameras nonetheless!!! Oh yes President Obama INSISTED that they do this live on TV!!!!), and let them fire away and quiz him? Not even if Jesus had instructed him to would he have had done it.

For almost 90 minutes, President Obama, visibly (and understandably) a lil testy went back and forth with the Republicans adding at one point, "We've got to be careful about what we say about each other sometimes, because it boxes us in in ways that makes it difficult for us to work together because our constituents start believing us," Obama said. "So just a tone of civility instead of slash-and-burn would be helpful."

I'm telling yall. This man is doing politics in a whole new way these people aint never even thought of it. When you come and change the game like this you will meet resistance. They just are not ready.

Our President is fly yall.
