Glad he finally spoke about the pink elephant in the room: the fact that technology is going to continue to replace humans in the workplace, meaning people are going to have be smarter ( get higher education)

Another thing I heard frequently in this speech was how he is going to require Americans to be more responsible going forward.

Hopefully this means

Population Control
Not spending money on child-support agencies searching for men who have chosen not to be fathers ( this forces women to be responsible)
Not rewarding welfare recipients who continue to have more children while on welfare with extra benefits

to name a few.....these may appear radical, but they are real solutions to not only our deficit, but the productivity of our nation.

but...

I agree with the new mandate about enforcing children to wait until they turn 18 to drop out or graduate.

I love it!

How will this work with No Child Left Behind? Are teachers going to pas children along even more than they already are?


Why on earth would you support this? Governments can't make kids learn, can't motivate them and can't make parents all of a sudden become better than they were. My older children graduated because of parenting and motivation, not because the government told them they didn't have a choice. What would we do with those who don't listen? Put them in jail?

LESS mandates, please.
As far as No Child Left Behind--get rid of it.

I dont believe that Obama or any of the GOP candidates could fix this country over the next 4 year... Each of them has their own agenda, and the damage that's already been done is too severe..... Its going to take multiple (2-3) terms to get this country back on track....

My favorite part of the speech was when Obama was bragging about getting Bin Laden (eliciting rave applause from the audience), BUT then the camera cut to a shot of a group of military bigwigs and not a single one of them was standing or clapping. It's hard to resist the temptation to infer anything from that.

What's my point?

Government created lobbyists.

Shrink the power of Government and it's instrusiveness there will not be a need for them.



Lobbyists are not funded with tax payer money, they are funded with private money
and dues.

Can you honestly tell us at what point lobbying will die off due to your "solution"?

You can't because it only addresses a small part of the system.

His information is skewed, if you never worked and are disabled you get right under $700 a month, plus medicaid and food stamps. Its called ssi

If his parents are only receiving $800 a month on full blown social security then they have always lived in poverty as social security is based on what you have earned your entire life. Its called ssa

Im not going to mention his family anymore, It can be viewed as disrespectful, but it is also a clear example of supporting a political party that doesn't support ones best interest.

I think the speech was awesome and its nice to hear good news and a since of hope coming from Washington for a change. Oh and its also refreshing after hearing the republicans and there speeches with there debates, to hear some one that relates to average Americans and there hopes and dreams, and of issues with clear common since solutions.

When are you going to look past the end of your gas mask?

Sure, Obama is not the answer, but neither is the Republican establishment as it is!

We need to look for a real answer and quit perpetuating the left vs. right BS that keeps us stuck in a one-track state of mind.

heh heh Even with "Date night" in the seating arrangement, we can tell only half of the attendees approved his message, and it's not hard to know who approves and who doesn't.

Yes...and that is what everyone else calls it too who isn't ignoring facts.

Things take time...Bush tanked us...and we are slowly but surely climbing out of the pit.

I am partisan only towards my personal beliefs. I hold no favor to party or politician. I support Ron Paul, but you just spend your time bashing all things "leftist". You care not for fact or common sense.

So the real question is.....are you kidding yourself?

When did this happen?

I guess I didn't get the memo.

(The climbing out of the pit I mean)

I forgot the favorite scapegoats blame the dude who was there for a few years instead of the people who were their decades and made policy like Senators Frank and Dodd.

The "crisis" was manufactured by the left simple fact because Frank and Dodd controlled Fanny and Freddy.

The real issue here is that govt takes your money from you forcibly while you are young and energetic and puts you at their mercy when you are old and frail. During all those years, the Fed keeps printing money and the value of the dollar goes down and inflation goes up.
It is a sickening thing.

It's so funny that people just seem to forget that Bush did the bank bailouts...not Obama.


So.. What was the billions in stimulus packages that Obama forced through then??
