Obama’s State of the Union

President Obama Addresses Joint Session Of Congress


Here’s where you can read the entire transcript of the speech.  I found it fascinating to watch so many Congressman and Senators from the GOP on their Blackberries or iPhones during the speech, and the video above captures John McCain mouthing the words “Blame it on Bush.”  That would be an accurate statement Senator.

I want to note points in the speech where Republicans sat on their hands, not applauding, while Democrats gave Obama a standing “O.”  What do Republicans find objectionable about a tax cut for small businesses?  Ending tax breaks for companies that send American jobs overseas?  Are Republicans really against student loan programs and assistance to help Americans be beter educated and better able to compete in the world economy?  They sat during this proposal so they must be against it.  Prohibiting foreign money from influencing our elections. Should be a no-brianer.  They don’t like that either.

    Such a whiner.
    Is this the Audacity of NOPE we are encountering?
    Obama is not manly enough to face his own faults. It is always about someone else.
    Someone said that we need good jobs we don’t need another good speech.

    The problem with Obama is that he has promised and not delivered, he is no longer believable. Smoke and mirrors economics. The 3 year freeze on spending for discretionary departments is a bogus hoax. Congress already gave those departments a 20% increase, which equals 6.7% per year. A fiscally prudent business tries to contain cost at zero growth or only 3% a year at most. Who is this guy fooling, all it does is guarantee an increase in spending. Why didn’t Obama scrap health care and cap and trade, he isn’t willing to give up on ideas that are abysmal failures that will only increase spending and thus impede job creation. He is engaging in same progressive agenda , he only tried to put lipstick on a pig by his oratorical skills. Pathetic

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will
    eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest
    enemy of the State.” — Joseph Goebbels
