The Professional Left Went All Out Defending Our President On The "SpeechDate" - "Scent Of A Woman"

Scent of A Woman -- a beautiful movie! I still get chills about that speech Al gave. You can see the transcript here and a modified transcript and a satire below the video:

The transcript for the above video has been modified by me as I have changed the characters to reflect current events. You can find the original script here:
The Professional Left (PL): What you tea party folks are about is such a crock of shit.

Boehner: Please watch your language, Mr. Liberal. You are in the exclusive "whites only" Baird School for the racists not a barracks. Mr. Professional Left, I will give you one final opportunity to speak up.

The PL: Mr. Obama doesn’t want it. He doesn’t need to be labeled: “Still worthy of being an ‘American.’” What the hell is that? What is your motto here? Hijacking jobs bills, killing regulations, killing unions, calling teachers thugs, stomping on a woman’s head, threatening Senators for supporting healthcare reform, making our townhalls a place where other citizens couldn’t be heard, intimidating legislators, spitting on legislators, asking for the President’s birth certificate, calling us socialists, calling the President a Muslim as a slur, bringing hate to American Muslims, questioning the patriotism of our President and the First Lady, calling Obama Hitler at your rallies.
“Boys, kneecap the President, smear him non-stop, say no to everything he proposes and make sure his legacy is tarred beyond repair — anything short of that we’re gonna burn you at the stake? Well, gentlemen, when the shit hits the fan some guys run and some guys stay. Here’s President Obama facing the fire; and there’s you Mr. Boehner, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and the rest of them racist fucks hidin’ in big Koch brother’s pocket. And what are you doin’? You’re gonna reward the sock puppet of the Koch and try to destroy President Obama for looking out for the American People and doing magnificent thing in his first two years in office until your teabagging racist party paralyzed the House of Representatives. 
Boehner: Are you finished, Mr. Professional Left?

The PL: No, I’m just gettin’ warmed up. I don’t know who went to this place, William Howard Taft, William Jennings Bryan, William Tell, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan — whoever. Their spirit is dead — if they ever had one — it’s gone. You’re building a rat ship of racists, secessionist, hatefully cowards here. A vessel for sea goin’ snitches and fucking religious right lynch mob fundamentalist who are interested in ending the world. And if you think your preparing these country for greatness, you better think again. Because I say you are killing the very spirit this country proclaims it instills! What a sham. What kind of a show are you Republicans and some Leftists puttin’ on the MSM or blogs today because the President rescheduled his speech to a joint session in the House. I will tell you, if you think hating on this President is classy, you are classless. The only class in this act is sittin’ by the country and that is President Obama. And I’m here to tell ya no matter what you do, no matter what you say, no matter how much you try to disrespect him, no matter how inconvenience it is to see a black man being the leader of the free world, President Obama's soul is intact. It’s non-negotiable. You know how I know? Someone here — and I’m not gonna say who — have made so many assertions to only be proven wrong time and time again. Americans know he may not be able to do everything the way all 300 million people want things done but he ain't sellin’.

Boehner: Sir, you are out of order!

The PL: Outta order? I’ll show you outta order! You don’t know what outta order is, Mr. Boehner! I’d show you but I’m too old; I’m too tired; I’m too f*ckin’ blind; I am too fucking emotional I would be afraid I might do something to you. If I were the man I was as dictatorial Leftist I was some years ago I’d take a FLAME-THROWER to this place! Outta order. Who the hell you think you’re talkin’ to? I’ve been around, you know? There was a time I could see and reason. And I have seen a country take pride in itself doing the right thing for the poor, the have nots, those who can't feed themselves, those struggling to make ends meet. But there isn’t nothin’ like the sight of an amputated spirit; there is no prosthetic to fix it unless you Mr. Boehner stop this bullshit and work for America's common interest instead of the "racist-laced Medicaid-mugging, billionaire-codling right staggers". What you people are doing to this splendid President with your nonstop evil spirited hate fest is cowardly. You think you’re merely sendin’ this splendid foot-soldier back home to Chicago with his tail between his legs, but I say you are executin’ his SOUL!! And why?! Because he’s half White or too Black or not a Baird man! Baird men, ya hurt this boy, you’re going to be Baird Bums, the lot of ya. And Hamsher, Greenwald, Green, Cenk, Krugman, Huffington wherever you are out there, FUCK YOU, too!

Boehner: Stand down, Mr. Professional Left!

The PL: Fuck you, I’m not finished yet! As I came in here, I heard those words, “cradle of leadership.” Well, when the bow breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here; it has fallen. Makers of men; creators of leaders; be careful what kind of leaders you’re producin’ here. I don’t know if Mr. Obama’s kindness in not wanting to steal the thunder from the Republican debate here today is right or wrong but I will tell you it is gracious and compassionate.

I’m not a judge or jury. But I can tell you this: he won’t sell anybody out to buy his future!! He will do what is RIGHT. And that, my friends, is called integrity! That’s called courage! Now that’s the stuff leaders should be made of. Now I have come to the crossroads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew. But I never took it. You know why? It was too d*mn hard. Now here’s President Obama. He’s come to the crossroads. He has chosen a path. It’s the right path. It’s a path made of principle — that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey.

You hold this boy’s future of this country in your hands, Mr. Boehner. It’s a valuable future. Believe me. Don’t destroy it! Protect it. Embrace it. It’s gonna make ya proud one day — I promise you. The Professional Left has spoken for me today. PS: I am in sleepless in Seattle and I am going to enjoy the day visiting friends so I won't be able to fully engage but have a good day.

Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
