    State of the Union






    Well worded. Well spoken. Mostly more of the same. Odds of the objectives/programs/bills outlined being achieved..... ?

    I watched a 3rd Rock from the Sun DVD instead.

    I agree. I thought Nancy was going to go into orbit a few times. Looked like someone popped her in the rump with a cattle prod. And yes, it is rediculous how the rest of the Dems jumped up like highschool cheerleaders (I was waiting for them to form a pyramid) while the Repub.s sat stoically while whispering to one another. I don't see bipartisanship in our future.

    Just more bs like always. Only difference I saw was the fact that the speech was tailored more to the individual watcher at home and their approval more than anything. This was achieved by Obama acting like an outsider and giving those "mean, corrupt politicians" a slap on the wrists and reminding them they are Americans and represent the people, and lobbyists are bad, and yada yada yada, blah blah blah. Dont even get me started on corruption, bribes, lobbyists, etc. They control washington, that isnt gonna change, no matter how charasmatic of a speaker you are, or how many times you and your party blame Bush for everything.

    Besides all that,.. I thought it was a good speech.

    Let's see, up until a week ago he had a huge majority in the House and a Super Majority in the Senate yet he couldn't get his bullshit health care passed. Now that the Super Majority in the Senate is gone he's claiming that it's the Republicans who are the reason nothing gets passed??? Lying piece of shit.

    Tha'ts all I can post. Every time I think about those assholes in D.C. my blood pressure goes through the roof.
    Rules? You mean we have RULES for that???

    Nice speech, nothing will happen, but that's probably a good thing.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    I sensed some concern that now he might have to give some consideration of what the voters think instead of not really giving a shit while pushing his health care program through.

    I have that problem, too.

    I have only watched half, and it was pretty much what I expected it would be.
    The less Obama does, the better. So far, I still feel that is was the better choice. We'll see if I still fill this way a year from now.

    "This problem "THAT IN INHERITED" was due to the recklessness of a stimulus package passed by my predecessor. I tried to fix it with a stimulus package ten times bigger than my predecessor's. Since that only made the problem ten times worse, I want to pass ANOTHER stimulus package."

    it was the same old theatrical quasi choreographed skit...I highly doubt he will achieve most of what he said for two reasons:

    1. Its a lie (just like his reversal of NAFTA lie during his campaign)
    2. He can't get the USG as a whole to back him up

    Only difference is, he has an EXCELLENT method of delivery when it comes to speeches. He can talk the talk better than any other politician out there right now, but he walks the same walk as everyone else

    Nothing to discuss.

    The State of the Union is a waste of time.

    It's a carefully crafted propaganda speech.

    Tune out.

    They should not even have such a things as the "State of the Union" address.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    kind of. The Constitution does not say how often or by what means

    "He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient"

    he could send a letter if he wanted and fulfill this responsibility

    I think Congress should actually meet less, because when they meet all they do is pass more restrictive laws and regulations.

    I'm saying trying to make oil out as a bad guy is just cheap politics. I'm saying that capitalist economics should decide our energy policy not some yuppie, tree hugging, "look at me I'm so green" douche bag who only got elected because he wasn't george bush. anyone thinking that that paragraph in the state of the union means anything for economic policy is pretty dense

    This has nothing to do with yuppie tree hugging earth muffins and everything to do with catching up to the rest of the world in an Industry that I personally have seen grow exponentially over the 7 years I have been in the business. Solar panels, inverters, batteries, wind generators are hot products, and the Japanese and Germans lead the market, we need to step up our game, the tax incentives help to drive the market, plus it helps to create more jobs....
