Obama jokes about a health care deal

(CNN) – Prior to entering the House chamber to deliver his first State of the Union, President Obama was talking it up with Republican Sens. Lamar Alexander, John Cornyn, and John Thune and then turned to a larger group and declared: "We just brokered a health care deal right here."

A bit of levity on a serious subject right before Obama was to address the nation.

    I just don't understand how this country can forget that Pres. Obama inherited most severe of problems from the previous administration. Give him a break! He has only had 1 year to work on the problems the Bush Administration created over an 8 year period. Please give him some time and some support to work for all of us; rich and poor, young and old and all races. Let's work together to make this country what it was.

    We are all Americans! Political posturing has no place in this country. We deserve a united citizenry.

    thanks
