    How about, regarding WI, "But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized," a bunch of windows being broken, union thugs going in, tearing down statues, several rounds of ammunition found on the grounds, the death threats against the Republican senators, the 'targeting' signs with Walker in the sights etc. "At a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do," and get these people out there railing against the Republicans and Scott Walker. "It's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we're talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds." You know, a speech as he gave shortly after the Tuscon event. As if that would ever happen.

    Lets hope that Obama sees fit to mention the outrageous event at Wisconsin.

    So much for campaign pledges – – The middle class keep taking the hits for Big Business and Wall Street.

    They will soon own the country!

    Hey CNN, why do I have to go to the foreign press to read about coalition forces accidentally killing an elderly relative of Karzai or the federal Judge who ruled against the Ecuadoran natives and in favor of Chevron. You guys and the rest of the corporate media wouldn't know real journalism if it snuck up behind you and brained you with an old typewriter.

    Yeah, gas prices are going up primarily because of speculative buying. If he releases the strategic reserves to address pricing...good luck with that. If it's not a supply problem, increasing the supply will not solve anything. But let's see what his plan is. I know he has not come out and said that yet.

    gas prices are riasing because of brokers and speculators in the market place cashing in on the fear factor. it has nothing to do with supply. they have got this rape of the consumer down pat to a point that if a middle east oil country leader "passes gas" thats enough news to raise prices on. don't forget that a president once said "greed is good greed built america" remember that when you pay for your tank of gas your only building america for the brokers and speculators which i am sure will trickle down some of their money to you! look up so you won't miss yours! just make sure when your looking up your back is against a wall.

    This is the right time to address America. I know from the bottom of my heart, it will be done right.
