Shorter Obama Speech
“Since nothing else has worked, I’m going to try some mild populism tonight, but I’m still prepared to meet the GOP 90% of the way and enact Hoover-like policies in a recession.”
Shorter Speaker of the House John Boehner: “Get stuffed.”

It's funny most of the replies are focusing on who's fault it is or who created the problem, exactly what the two of them did on tv.

you say screw the rich people, yet don't you see whats happened? the rich guys are leaving the U.S. to nations where they would pay 0 taxes on property and such.
we need to bring jobs back into this country, and if we just keep threatening the ones who have stayed with higher taxes, they'll leave too. so for you the decision to live with at this point would be, lets the rich have their tax cuts, or accept mass deportation, so Americans can have the
jobs that are left. sadly this may be what it comes down to
