    Nice bait and switch CNN! You press play on the video thinking you'll see his speech to the students and instead you get a tirade of quasi-intellectuals judging the President's economic policies.
    Nicely done. Not.

    ALL republicans are not bad, all are not obstructionists, all are not unprincipled Obama-haters [i.e. racists], all are not against the President and NOT ALL of them have vowed to work for his "failure"; but the ones in Congress and some statehouses HAVE.

    These people have been campaigning & politicing against Mr. Obama since February of 2009; their opposition has NOTHING to do with his "policies". The Healthcare Insurance reform law – which many of them claim is the source of their opposition – wasn`t voted on and signed until about the 15th month of his Tenure; not the 1st. Their excuses don`t hold water.

    They will call him the " Campaigner-in-Chief" but I don`t see it that way. Apparently with them, you HAVE be on CONSTANT GUARD against lies & untruthful and manipulative statements [Death Panels; JobS, Jobs, Jobs; Tax Cuts for Job Creators, etc] . If the GOPTP`ers want to complain about the President governing through taking the message to the people, they should not have begun their mis-information campaign in February 2009.

    He's campaigning.........he is not pushing his jobs plan, because he knows it isn't really a plan, in the first place.

    It is however, an excuse to campaign on the public's dollar. Obama is the worst kind of Dem........he squanders OUR money, to serve himself.

    This country simply cannot afford the "Campaigner in Chief" for another 4 years.Sure, he's very good at it, but the message and promises have fallen far short during his administration. Makes you feel like you've been scammed.

    ...the president began by referring to the "once-in-a-lifetime economic crisis" facing the nation, saying his administration knew "it was going to take years" to rebuild.
    Oh, so the increased ( official ) unemployment rate of 9% and the increased debt to $15 trillion was all part of his Grande Plan For Recovery? I think he had better enjoy his last 15 months on Pennsylvania Avenue because American voters will make his current administration a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Everyone who has a pea sized brain knows that Obummie's job plan doesn't do anything for job creation. His plan is to further his class warfare.agenda. His statements about a millionaire paying less federal taxes on a percentage basis is a bold face lie. Check the IRS stats on this. Millionaires paid 20.5% of the taxes and were 0.2% of the tax filers. What is their fair share when 50% don't pay anything? Also their rate is double that of the middle class. But Obummie's plan raises taxes on people making over $200,000 and eliminates deductions for them. Why is he sticking to his millionaire and billion statements when he is also sticking it to people that only make $200,000? Most of us that do pay taxes, which is only about half of us, feel we already pay more than our fair share because the other half of the country doesn't pay federal taxes. If any of you out there, including the lying weasel named Buffett, feel you don't pay enough send your check to the Bureau of the Public Debt. You may also make your contributions on line. So Obummie supporters, Dom Mama for Obummie; Rick, NYC; Sniffitt there is the answer to your problem. Give all you want. But I would be willing to bet you are in the 50% that pays nothing.
