    For those who have forgotten one of Obama's campaign promise let me remind you. Obama said he would keep Americans informed and the only way to inform us is by the media we only have to listen and understand. So put on your listening ears and then we can voice our opinions but we can't hear if are minds are blocked with negativity.

    If you are a politician and you have brain-dead for the past 8 years, U do not need to express your opinions while Obamabot is Prez, unless you have the solutions to problems.

    Brain-dead = missing in action politicians...
    Brain-dead = politicians that helped give a 5 trillion blank check to W

    If he can give a major speech on the economy, why can't he make a statement on HAMAS/Israel? Are his HAMAS buddies advising him via his personal cell phone?

    Simply put: Republicans this whole mess was your fault!!! So sit down be quiet and let the rest of us get some work done.
    That is pretty short sighted. Both parties are to blame, ALL POLITICIANS ARE LIARS AND CHEATS. Yes, even Obama. What happened to all of his campaign promises that were on his website????

    You morons such as "proud American" even dont know what Obama is going to say but conclude he is going to deliver inspirational policy and it is going to solve all our problems. get a life man...

    This is obama's patteren...give a speech written by a pro and do a something different...remember the talk on no lobbyist in his admin..remember talk abould public financing...remember his talk about NAFTA ....
    Yes FDR inspired the whole america but he got things done..so it is too early to judge Obama but his track record does not look very roosey

    republicans should be overjoyed as obama is little by little revealing himself as simply a republican puppet. a $500 tax break? shades of deja vu, a devastated economy, purposely bankrupted government & w. what an absolutely perfect con job. my hat's off to you!

    Ummm...what happened to there being "only one President at a time"????

    Why is Obama still mute when it comes to events in Gaza??? His zero experience in foreign affairs (among many other things) was an issue in the election that was buried by the lemmings who wanted "hope and change." So he comes out with his own economic package and delivers weekly addresses on everything under the sun, except the issues in the Middle East. He's a Post Turtle.

    To Sweetie who says: We need some brilliant conservatives to offer up a better way!

    Yeah Right. We see what these brilliant conservatives did to our economy ( and rest of the country) the last eight years.

    A $500.00 tax credit? It should be at least a $5,000.00 tax credit. Billions to bail out crooks and only 500.00 for the average American. This is "big"? Hardly.
