    That's your idea of a good president, right?

    please do not minimize his accomplishments

    he also turned a budget surplus into massive deficits

The Democrats still have a vision for a future that is better than today and they still want to aggressively go after it.
    Holy crap! Someone actually did some analysis!

    He also took us to war over WMD that weren't in Iraq. That cost America roughly another 5,000 lives.

    The righties' idea of a "good president," though.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Just a little information that I'm sure will tweak the haters:

    63% believe that Obama made the case for a second-term (and this doesn't even factor in the two sorry candidates that are vying for the GOP nod)

    Don't overlook that he presided over the only 8 years in American history in which the median household income actually fell. Gotta wonder where all that money went...

    But it's not all bad news. The median income of millionaires increased 400% during the same term.

    Gosh I wonder if there is a connection.

    Tweak away, but that's nothing but a worthless unscientific online poll.

    Still campaigning against Bush? I'll let you in on a little secret....Bush is not in the White House anymore....and he's not running for president this year.

    Good luck with that one....maybe MAYBE if there was a viable alternative, but the two current clowns in the lead aren't going to be very convincing.

    I never claimed that it was scientific....but it is an instant "temperature" of the effect of the speech....polls in the next few days will tell the full story...but for those hoping that this would be Obama's last SOTU speech.....this is a good indication that he didn't falter as many were hoping for.
