Washington (CNN) -- President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night will be "all about America winning," one of his top advisers told CNN. Valerie Jarrett said the president will focus on "winning for the future and what we have to do to be competitive in this global marketplace."



Facing a divided Congress, a still-recovering economy, and critics who say he has failed to adequately focus on jobs in the past, the president will present what Jarrett described as a "framework" for moving forward.

Don't expect many specifics, however. Those will follow in three weeks when Obama releases his budget, Jarrett said. Then "you'll see a great degree of specificity of how we'll get the job done."

In the address, "the most important speech he gives every year," the president will focus on innovation, Jarrett said. "We're the country that's known for creativity and ingenuity and entrepreneurship. It will be about education, making sure that our children are going to be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow, that our innovators are going to be able to compete in this global marketplace. It will be about focusing on infrastructure and investing in our country so that we can get businesses to invest right here at home."

Do I even need to put anymore down for these fools lips? WE HEARD THIS CRAP BEFORE-

Let me translate (only after just watching the 3 biggies on TV at 11:00 today [Fox, CNN & MSNBC]. They are all reporting that Obama plans to SPEND, SPEND, SPEND-again. That is where I say Obama has hit the:


Apparently he and his buddies haven't figured it the problem out yet and they need our assistance-again (election of 2010). They need us to yell at them: Anyone can spend money, we want someone that can SAVE money.

It is the only thing that either side hasn't honestly attempted-with full force. Cutting Spending-Drastically.

He'll stand up there tonight and feed you the biggest plate of Male Bovine Feces you ever imagined. He is desperate and he must figure it is better to lie and deceive instead of telling the truth and dealing with the problems we have legitimately.

Go ahead, call me a Racist, Obama hater and even the dreaded (DARE I SAY) Republican. Enough with all of you too-no one is listening anymore. We're trying to force Real Change-starting with Fiscal Responsibility.

So, unless you hear anything less then something like a 10% cut across the board-Obama isn't serious enough about the problem(s) and it is only going to get worse.

He and his clan are sure sounding like republicans now-a-days.... but as I have said before... If Obama's lips are moving---- he is lying to you.



I just love Jarrett saying don't worry about the Specifics.... Remember that one with the Obama Health Care Law?

And, before you get all hyped on this ABC report out this morning:
Exclusive: President Obama to Propose Budget Freeze and Earmark Ban Tonight
blogs.abcnews.com...
Be sure to listen to the Details.... oh yeah, there won't be a lot of details. This is just more BS from the Obama camp. Tell them what they want to hear and do what you want to do.
Education, construction and infrastructure. Been there and did that-3 times with Stimulus $$$. The only sounding Republican like to get past tonight's speech.

America doesn't need anymore vague generalized motivational speeches, we need to know what exactly this administration is doing to A.) REDUCE GOVERNMENT SPENDING (what are these people not getting?!?)
and B.) WHAT ARE THEY DOING EXACTLY TO BOOST THE ECONOMY

...but I'm sure we'll hear a teleprompted high school football motivation speech that will probably include a cute joke about the Superbowl or something else equally naive, as if the economy and current affairs is a non issue

If this is so easy, why isn't it fixed?

Seriously. This could have been a good discussion had you not started with the condescending bashing stuff. Instead, well just watch what happens...

He can't do that unless the Republicans allow him to.


Which is why Obama can't lose in this situation.

OMG! The hole is getting deeper, dig faster!
Spending? Really? Spend your way out of debt. Great.

I'll just call Chase and see if I can get the uber-mega-platinum card!
That'll save my family

A winning economic future?

For who?

Definately not you and me, the common masses, but for the facists corporate elites. That's they way to go. Go get em, kiddo, while the rest of us slaves sweat, toil, and sleep on the streets and they enjoy the fruits of the comman man's labour.

It's a no brainer, with the facist elites surrounding him. Heck! Mayhaps I can write a better script for the SOTU. Afterall, it takes only lying through the teeth and forcing ALL to look at the debris caused by the inept TPTB throug colored lenses.

"Fiends, Americans and globalmen, lend me your ears. I came not to praise TPTB, but to bury the past ( yup, bury the evidences and wrong doings by the elites). Let us all look forward to the future, which is bright and shinning, as you all continue to pay taxes while the rich pay lesser so that they will spend more (on casino Wall Street, not manufacturing).

As we buy Chinese goods, made cheaply thanks to our technology freely given away by our friendly and kind hearted corporations whom had elevated the lives of the chinese people, take pride with each dollar you spend ( that is only enriching the corporations but certanily not the chinese masses) that you are doing a good cause, as you live in the streets today.

Let us not be choosy ( easy for you to say, being in the congress million dollar club) with the jobs, for a dollar earned is a dollar saved for your future and your generations future ( while the corporations spend more than dollars, trillions of taxpayer funds to protect their resources).

Today we may be poor and feed on broth ( while you and your kind dine on caviar and lobsters), but tommorow, as we grow in wealth ( we? you mean your masters?) we and our children will dine upon fine dinners and wine( if they had not starve to death first and any food leftover by the hideously selfish food supplies cartel), shared by our courageous fellow soldiers who will be returning soon from warzones, I promise you ( when? 100 years from now?)

Is this when Obama tells us he was unduly influenced by the far left and is now all of a sudden a moderate... and all of our mortgages will be paid, our freezers will be full, New Jobs are exploding everywhere, the unemployed have jobs waiting for them so line up, our grocery and energy rates wont get any higher and we're all gonna be just fine??

I want my goddam chicken in the pot ... and a stimulus check...

Wanna know how to create jobs? Take a bunch of secret government and military technology and open it up to new companies in America for the populous. Make the companies locate their HQs, design-teams, and manufacturing units in America. And Instead of giving bailouts to the mega-banks and a couple Senators' friend's companies, give the companies a grant and the technology to design useful hi-tech products for American and World consumers, and to not leak the technology to foreign companies. Instead focus on making new multinational American corporations.

- I am sure the Air Force could give up technology that would upgrade all of our airline's fleets to the best in the world. They could even work with NASA to set up corporations to design public space transportation shuttles that are capable of taking people around the world in 90mins. Travel and tourism would boom.

- What about designing missions to the Moon and Mars for useful minerals and rare earth elements? They could let America corporations build on what they started and create an entire new industry focused on finding ways to export resources and import life to other celestial bodies.

- They could share knowledge from their state-of-the-art satellites to vastly improve our entire planet’s communication systems and internet speeds.

Quit pumping money into so many secret spying/killing machines, bureaucratic crap for Senators, Big Brother, and start finding ways how to help educate and prosper your citizens. They have a bunch of information they purposely don’t teach us that could turn our country and economy around. But it is of National Security for them not to release it.. i.e. they don’t trust us enough and want our full faith in them…

Youre so silly.. youre making positive suggestions. We want nothing positive. WHen you perform a controlled demolition its not to do anything positive for the thing being destroyed. Its to change it into something else.


IMHO the US is under a controlled demolition so it can be changed. Survival of our current way of life isnt really a factor I dont think. If it were, we wouldnt have been making movements toward a NAU ( or something like it) for a few decades now.

Unless you have a crystal ball, you don’t know what the POTUS will say this evening. It is my understanding that the bulk has been kept under wraps. I’ll be watching for sure. Heck I’ll even listen to Republican response. ( Though probably not the Tea Party response by the Palin wannabe Bachman) I suppose FOX News will be the only network to air hers around Beck re-runs during SOTUA.


In the spirit of “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness” I’ll add some sage wisdom from another great American President.

JFK Quotes from speeches:

"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

"When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters--one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity."

“We have all made mistakes. But Dante tells us that divine justice weighs the sins of the cold-blooded and the sins of the warm-hearted on different scales. Better the occasional faults of a party living in the spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a party frozen in the ice of its own indifference.”

“Economic growth without social progress lets the great majority of the people remain in poverty, while a privileged few reap the benefits of rising abundance.”

Commentary:

Since John F. Kennedy, no President has understood that budget deficits are only remedied through economic expansion and growth, and not by cutbacks in Federal spending, tax increases, austerity, or selling off government assets to the private sector. Most Presidents since the early 1960s have insisted that this country could not have a strong defense and at the same time make the necessary infrastructure investments for economic growth.

I indicated he Plans on spending etc. Of course the Repubs are saying NO More etc.

It's a crap shoot for him. Depending how things play out before the hardcore election time-the results will be spun by his team etc. " I could have done it or fix it IF the Repubs would have voted to let me spend more. But since they didn't, you got what you got (and of course whatever is there will be made to look horrible and ruined since the 2010 elections).

He really has not other options.... unless he joins up with the Repubs.

he's just giving false hope and false change. i see more and more people now not caring if someone's D or R . it honestly doesnt matter anymore, right now all anyone wants is to fix this recession, this economy, our foreign policies, our capitalistic gov't that BAILS out companies (doing the exact opposite of what capitalism even is..)
i for one , wont be watching the state of the union speech. everything he's gonna say has already been said by the presidents before him, he's just gonna say it with a smile. i helped vote him in office, and now, im waiting to help vote him out.

He had two years of total Democrat control. Are things better? Hell no, they are 10x worse. He didn't end the patriot act or the Iraq/Afghan wars, he quadrupled the deficit, has the Dems so deep in bed with unions and corps they'll never get out, passed a 1000+ page supposed healthcare bill nobody seems to have read.

BUT the few who actually vote in the US have short term memory and 90% of the mass media is on Obama's side so I don't doubt he'll get re-elected.

The debate has been framed falsely

(Government can stimulate jobs - let us spend more)
vs.
(Private sector creates jobs...Just give us tax breaks and less rules)

The middle ground is Government focusing on areas that FACILITATE the private sector succeeding, competing and creating jobs.

Spend...
Human capital - Education, education, education
Infrastructure - Roads/shipping/commuting and technology
Innovation - government loans and grants for innovative private sector start-ups and companies that are pushing the envelope.
Reforming and simplifying the Tax Code - Both eliminating the huge amount of loopholes while lowering taxes across the board.

These are all things that other countries are doing very well right now or have taken the lead while we are in a stall.

We need to get back in the game...and quick.

Cut spending...
Everywhere else we can.

These are not left/right issues...these are not government takeovers...this is government as it should be...creating fertile ground for American Capitalism and Innovation.

BUT what you will see is spin and politicization of all of it so it conveniently fits into the left/right paradigm.

HCR was long term planning...and a bitter pill for most to swallow in a crisis. That is done and the Pres. has always been a moderate pragmatist...and what we will see now post HCR is him focusing on issues that both the left and the right should support absent the rhetorical nonsense.

I wonder if he'll be using anything from my own vision for the future

Had I been POTUS instead of Cheney/Bush, this would have been my thinking:

INSTEAD of making a run at the throne of the earth ie: global geostrategic hegemony, by authorizing the muder of 3000 of my own constituents, in order to wage resource and domination wars as per the PNAC (with a soft c) recommendations, and sacrificing another million innocent souls in the process to a Satanic doctrine..

..I would have looked into the future of the 21st century and noted that the whole world was on the very cusp of entering the technological age, and on the basis that we had a severe CRISIS on our hands, in education and technological innovation, and were about to lose our competitive edge in an increasingly competitive global marketplace, I would have spent that TWO TRILLION dollars on all manner of infrastructure, including a REAL information superhighway in the form of terrabit bandwidth fiber optic cabling to every school and home in the country, as well as various Civil Infrastructure initiatives, including high speed and light commutor rail corridors between all the major urban centers, improving dramatically the speed of exchange of people and goods and services, as well as the continued joy of community living, or a MAJOR national upgrade in other words, on par with JFK's landing on the moon initiative.
Then we could have turnedd our attention to the Education System, recognizing that our HUMAN INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL development, is indeed our greatest national asset and latant potentiality, for securing a vital edge within the larger context of an emerging global civilization / global village.

In other words, I would have tried to discern and do the will of God, instead of Satan, simple as that.

I honestly think there might have been GIVEN the wrong blueprint for success by the wrong people, people like Cheney, Bush Sr. and their ilk. &/or whoever they take their marching orders from..

May there be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth...

Speaking of "head in the sand" if you'd raise yours and do a little reasearch ON YOUR OWN you'd learn it is intended to be a show of unity and civility in light AZ tragedy.

Geez, why do the people who just read Drudge or WND and spewing the same nonsense refer to others as sheeple?

IMO if the goal was to" fix" the economy he would have made moves to do so within the time he has already been president. He's done a great job with change though.. he has changed the economy and is changing the country.. bad for us, good for those who benefit from bail outs and etc.

Dem or repub. they are the same. 2 sides of the same coin feeding everyone opposite lines of BS and going toward the same goal. Keep everyone divided and appease the ears but not the belly. WHy are we still talking about Dems versus Repubs.. or repubs taking control and doing it better..really?
