    Is Obama also going to have dancing bears and plate spinners in his political circus tonight?

    Is he going to attack and insult the US Supreme Court justices again? If so, I hope they just get up and walk out. He deserves a bird flip but they have too much class for that.

    Wow must be nice to have a Billionaire for a boss who supports the President.

    Better watch out you know you are in the 1% that Obama is against.

    Aaaah one of the puppet masters will be represented, even though the "man behind the curtain" will not put in an appearance himself.

    You know, typically guests at the SOTU addresss have had some distinguished accomplishment or notable cause. In this case, the President of the United States is using an ordinary citizen as a political pawn in a State of the Union address. Just when you think Obama can't possibly go any lower, he puls off this political hack-a-rama.

    Wow. Just wow. The great uniter = the great divider.

    Obama is turning the SOTU into a first class clown show. What next? Is he going to drag in some of the OWS scum and let them squat in Congress? But when the State of the Union is BAD then you have to resort to smoke, mirrors and clown shows to fool the people.

    Bad news Obama... the American people are not fooled any more.

    Why doesn’t Obama ask Warren Buffet why he isn’t paying more in taxes? Warren Buffet can do that as we all know, there is nothing stopping him from paying more taxes.
