Am I the only one embarrassed after watching the "State of the Union"?

I'm not embarrassed at all...I'm very much excited and fired up now for the 2012 election.

Romney and Newt should be shaking in their boots...Obama isn't going to lie down and give up...he is ready to fight.

It was nice to hear Obama talk about helping out the working class instead of just arguing which way is better to help out the rich like the GOP does. The GOP candidates disagree on things like this...should we eliminate capital gains...or give corporations a flat tax of 5%????


This is the only choice in the 2012 election. Are you going to support someone who is proposing solutions for the working class or someone who is only concerned about how rich people can pay less taxes???

I like that George W Bush's budget director have the balls
to give a rebuttal preaching about the merits of budgetary
restraint... That was embarrassing...

Ya all the GOP has to offer is the suggestion for Prozac and black out curtains in everyone's
rooms. They are gonna run on more tax cuts for billionaires and depression, good luck, dudes.

Translation: The banker puppets on the strings of the same entities will make it look like they have stark differences and it's an actual legitimate election of voting for the candidate who will benefit the country the most when in reality things will be virtually the same with either of them as president.


This is the only choice in the 2012 election.
Nevermind him obviously being a banker puppet, not addressing the Federal Reserve and gleefully violating the Constitution over and over again makes him an unviable presidential candidate in my book.

Here are some of your "only choice's" top campaign donors:
Goldman Sachs $1,013,091
JPMorgan Chase & Co $808,799
Citigroup Inc $736,771
General Electric $529,855
Morgan Stanley $512,232

And here's a graphic that shows the 11 Goldman Sachs employees appointed to the Obama Administration:


Obama is the "only choice" if the person you want running this country is a banker-puppet tyrant violating the Constitution while continuing to accumulate debt and breaking promises.

I'm a Democrat. But I believe what Republican Abraham Lincoln believed: That Government should do for people only what they cannot do better by themselves, and no more.


Oh really Mr. President? Then please explain that 30% tax rate you threw out there in your speech.

Quoting Lincoln and then talking about a 30% tax rate is laughable. Medieval serfs had to give the lord of the manor one-third of their output and they were considered slaves.

The speech was very good. maybe obama's best yet. Even Boehner was choking on himself because Obama used many republican arguments to prove his points. No wonder the republican response was so muted. Obama blew it out of the park in my opinion. I think this election is over for all practical purposes.

Hmmm.....

It seems as though your Government is too big. Forcing kids to stay in school until 18? Bud out.

Yeah, we have a 16 year old here and everyday it's an argument to get her to get her butt in school.
But the truancy officers can't do anything. So, how can they sit there and force them to go? Too bad he didn't elaborate more on that topic.

You know , I missed most of it . What did the President have to say about our 15 Trillion National Debt ? What were his Ideas on how we can reduce it ? How about our Dismal Job Market , did he mention anything about trying to Improve it ?

I think he said we recovered more then 2 Trillion debt due to the business re-hiring the unemployed. I think that's what he said. Commentators on yahoo were noisy and annoying and kept interrupting the speech.

I disagree with the 2 Trillion.
