    So he thinks he's a King, with the power to rule America on his own whim, with no need for any consent from Congress or the American people? I guess this is certainly not the first hint we've seen of this attitude on his part.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    So this thread is a basic preview of the insane rhetoric that is going to come from far Right Conservatives during the campaign, I mean it's nothing we haven't heard before, bogus claims of Class warfare, socialism etc.

    Oh well. Ignorance is bliss I suppose.

    No, what's abundantly clear is that you're claiming that a single member of the minority party in the House has the power to completely shut down the majority party in the Senate; all while avoiding answering the salient point thar Republican leadership in the Senate refused to put two separate bills up for a full vote in the Senate.

    How did Barney Frank block S.190 and H.R.1461 (which actually passed in the House despite Frank's nay vote)?

    This place mirrors the, 'say no to everything Obama wants,' Republican-led House and it offers a glimpse as to why the government is broken. Obama even addressed this last night how America needs to unite to move forward and yet they still refuse. To many on the right, it's party first, country second.

    Anybody watching this???
    Yeah I watched it, and I think it's one of Obama's worst speeches ever. Much of the language didn't sound presidential, the delivery was off, and wasn't he usual quality.

    So you felt a tingle down your leg.
