Most Twitter conversations end up kinda like this.
Is Steve Jobs worthy of a stamp?
dreadfulpenny says: I can think of something more “offensivethan” that - lapdog media agencies like ShortFormBlog that seem to defend Obama at every turn. What about Benghazi? What about the overreach of the NSA? What about the IRS and their discriminatory handling of 501(c)(4) applications, including asking groups how they pray?
Obama’s been just as corrupt as Nixon and yet certain media groups look the other way. Why?
» SFB says: See this is your first mistake. You’re mistaking a guy with a laptop, opinions, and a terrible sense of humor for a media agency. I mean, have you seen the crappy jokes I make on here? Our president sucks just as much as anyone else on matters of national security, but at least he didn’t write a song called “Wango Tango.” — Ernie @ SFB

My fellow Americans, if we’re being truly honest with ourselves, I think we can all admit one thing. While the state of the union may be strong, it would have been a hundred times stronger if Buddy were still with us.The Onion: Obama Admits U.S. Hasn’t Been The Same Since Buddy Holly Died
So again, if you have specific plans to cut costs, cover more people, and increase choice – tell America what you’d do differently. Let’s see if the numbers add up. But let’s not have another forty-something votes to repeal a law that’s already helping millions of Americans like Amanda. The first forty were plenty. We all owe it to the American people to say what we’re for, not just what we’re against.Obama, throwing out sick burns on health care.
It’s time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a “Mad Men” episode.Obama, on gender equality in the workplace.
Finally, if we are serious about economic growth, it is time to heed the call of business leaders, labor leaders, faith leaders, and law enforcement – and fix our broken immigration system. Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have acted. I know that members of both parties in the House want to do the same. Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next two decades. And for good reason: when people come here to fulfill their dreams – to study, invent, and contribute to our culture – they make our country a more attractive place for businesses to locate and create jobs for everyone. So let’s get immigration reform done this year.The entirety of what Obama has to say about immigration in this huge speech. Feels like not very much.
