    If this Prez wants bipartisanship, it should start with him. If he wants trust, he needs to fulfill promises he made to us, ie healthcare on C-SPAN. And if he couldn't handle the GW Bush fallout, he shouldn't have run for the job, but instead continues to play the blame game. Stop the wah, wah, wah. I voted for Obama and never again!

    Who does Obama think he is going after the Supreme Court in the State of the Union? I wish they were classier and could rebut his drivel. Who does he think comprises unions and corporations? It's us working folks.....duh. He's all talk and partisanship.

    It's funny how we dont want a big government and at the same time we all expect the President to do something to crate jobs. How? The jobs are gone to China, the profits are with the big corporations, we all want high paid jobs, but we don't want to study hard. Seems to me we all want more that we can have, but we want someone to give it us.

    How about some investigative reporting.
    Twitter is not news, Twitter in politics is just party propoganda.

  7. Obama - worse Presidet ever.

    It's sad that that was our State of the Union address. This character is a joke. 2012 can't get here fast enough!

    Every time Obama speaks publicly these days, stock prices plummet. Why? I think it's because of a sense that he doesn't have a coherent vision for the economy. In short, he scares the hell out of Wall Street. For the sake of the nation, Mr. Obama, please try to resist the urge to flex those toned oratorical muscles.

    Given the responses that were read; it appears that the majority of the comments and results came from a younger base. Certainly doesn't represent the majority of middle class America. That's who Obama has forgotten. We don't need a sales-man in office, we need a leader. That Obama is not.

    Hidding behined closed doors with the Unions and making "bribs" with other states like Nebraska, speaks loud and clear of this President's actions.

    The PropOganda Machine tried to reset its image, but all the American people saw last night was more smoke and mirrors.

    Obama will say anything to mask the true goal of his administration: to grow government, control the economy, and turn our country into a socialist "utopia."

    But it's too late liberals, the people have come out of their "change" coma and realize what a mistake Obama is.

    On November 3, 2010, the State of the Union will be more conservative than ever!

    I dont understand why you people are against the president of the united states. There are child mulesters runing around out the there, and they are not ordinary men, these are big business men, doctors, lawyers, senators and officials. Why is it that rich people after taking everything form the poor and still taking, think its ok to do what ever and take what ever they feel like. isn't there some consequence to pay for abusing children, they are helpless, why not buy a dog with tax payers money and have sex with it. I know you can do something abotI it, thats were most of the tax payers money is going, buying inocent children for there sex crave.

    O is such a sweet talker. Saw where one lady said it was the first SOTU she had been able to listen to the very end. But reality should have been included in his speech. ie Freeze on spending, after spending 9 hundred million to Hamas (sworn to wipe us off the face of the earth) millions more to Palestine to bring jihadist to USA on USA taxpayers nickle including food housing medical when they arrive he is going to "freeze" gov. spending which will amount to less than 1% of the deficit HE CREATED. You see his lack of understanding The AMERICAN way of life ie BALANCE OF POWER when you see him attaching the highest court in the land because he disagrees with them (they did not like sheep follow where he wanted them to go. Yes I listened to what he said they I got the facts. To me his the the biggest MONSTER of my nightmares. Fear going to doctors, hospitals because he has made them the executioners of old, disabled, sick. READ THE HEALTH BILL page 429 giving doctors the right to write END-OF-LIFE ORDERS who deceides who dies your local government representative who does the execution your doctor!

    I found it difficult to not roll my eyes during the president's speech. It sounded to me as though the president was recycling his campaign speeches and looking to re-live the momentum and faith people had then. He spoke of hope, yet, he has delivered little results to relief folks of the economic stress they are under. He spoke of deficit reduction, yet, his agenda is plagued with big spending. He spoke of bipartisanship, yet, we have heard him tell the GOP to sit and be quiet so he can clean up the mess. He spoke to civility, yet, he openenly chastised the supreme court justices at the SOTU. He spoke of not demonizing big business, yet, he said he is ready for a fight with banks. He spoke about not being in campaign mode, yet, just weeks before, he was in massachusetts campainging for Cockley. He spoke to taking responsibilities, yet, his speech was plagued with blames on the former Bush administration.

    With this, how can i say with honestly that i took the president seriously. Words, after all, are cheap.

    Horrible speech from a horrible president. I could actually see President Pinoccio's nose growing as he spoke. And please, California, I'm begging you, please vote that lunatic Nancy Pelosi out of office. She is an absolute national embarrassment sitting back there adjusting and readjusting her false teeth through the entire speech and hopping up and down like a 3rd grade schoolgirl.

    I did not care to watch the idiot president do another number on the taxpayers so I did not watch the speech. How many times did he blame Bush? How many times did he refer to himself? How many times did he use the work "unprecedented"? I think it shows the class and grace Bush had, as well as the difference between Democrats and Republicans, that Bush never blamed Clinton and his administration for anything, in spite of the sophmoric destruction of the White House by Clilnton aides.

    OBOZO's speech was horrible. He blamed everybody, especially Bush, Republicans, and Military Chiefs.

    i find it funny that when OBOZO asked if anyone has a better HC plan let him know, and several Republicans raised their hands, but OBOZO didn't dare call on them.

    OBOZO is a socialist, and all the tele-prompter rhetoric isn't going to work.

    TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party movement is growing every day, and I am cheating on my taxes purely to stick to OBOZO and his crew.

    OBOZO the CLOWN needs to be impeached.

    Technology won't stop WARS of Aggression, not will it save the lives of those killed by Hateful Policy. We CAn Tweet, Facebook, MySpace and all the rest for Eternity, BUT it won't replace Peace as the best decision.

    Maybe one day the whole World could Tweet the Vote if they all had a communication device! I think the Abused and Exploited would Tweet this! S-T-0-P T-H-E K-I-L-L-I-N-G, We Need Food, Water, Shelter, Clothing, etc. Even this will not CHANGE BAD Policy by the Haves who Cause much of the Misery of those who Have NOT! Tweet This!

    I see that you added the two blue together to get 45 percent....why not add the other colors together that are negative for the President and you get over 50% everytime. You are not fair and your are unbalanced in your reporting. Its obvious you are bias. Just be fair no matter how it falls.

  23. Lets do action in 2011....

    Do nothing Washington-dems will start action in 2011 according to Obama's State of the Union Speech. Another of his rhetoric to carry-over leadership to tomorrow. Lets face it this man does not have what it takes to lead. Obama is a great speaker and even better whiner:

    .............................."Its all their fault"..........................................................

    When hitting a brick wall, smart people change direction...not Obama
    he truly believes that he is Ammerica's Messiah and can walk through
    brick walls....::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    President Obama stated in his State of the Union Address on Wednesday.that "we" (as in government) have lost the turst of the American People. After watching the last two state of the union addresses, that statement couldn't be closer to to the truth. I continue to lose trust in our governement when our senators continue to disrespect the president everytime they snicker of laugh at a comment or statement made by president Obama. It's hard not to disagree with President Obama when he also states that both parties must stop the "school age" name calling and finger pointing when trying to fix the mess that has been handed to him. I may not agree with some of President Obama's view points, but I think I am fair to say that it's time to grow up – "pull up the big boy pants" and start filling in the deep hole that they got us in. Pull up the sleeves and get dirty!
