    Yeah...Dems who historically have been the regulatory hawks have pandered to Wall Street and the financial sector for decades now. Relatively...they are still better than Republicans but they aren't the Dems of 30 or 40 years ago!

    I've seen what he has done for the last three years and in my mind actions speak louder than words.

    I probably would watch it if I knew it was his words and not some speech writers, and that he was speaking from the heart and not a tele-prompter.
    Then watch the rebuttal speech by Mr. Daniels. He is just about the only politician that does NOT employ, used or otherwise gets advice from speech writers. Every word he speaks, as in his rebuttal speech, is 100% his. He writes his own speeches......all of them.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Far too many here buy rhetoric and ignore the results because it is easy to believe what you are told instead of doing research to verify what you are told. Notice the Obama results and stop buying the rhetoric.

    Many here will attack the messenger and ignore the content. That is partially what is wrong with this country today, ignoring substance and buying rhetoric.

    Most of us are perfectly well aware that politicians present facts in a manner that's most flattering to their own argument, even it shades the truth from time to time. They all do it, all the time.

    Yes, the Dems are drinking the Kool-Aid, but so are you. No spin? HA!!. There is just as much spin in Bill O'Reilly as there is in Obama, which gives me an idea. Bill O'Reilly for President. He can be just as irrelevant as Obama.

    wow. An outlet that calls itself a news media calling Obama's State of the Union address, "rhetoric."

    They don't even bother to conceal their bias anymore, huh? No wonder righties love Fox News like they do. It feeds them what they want to hear.

    Wall Street and the very big banks and corporations LOVE the liberal Democrats and their propensity to increase laws and regulations. Those Democrat action make extreme profits for them.

    The more intrusive laws and regulations the less competition and therefore, more profits for the really big institutions. That's why you see the big money from the really big companies and Wall Street going to the Democrats. Yes, I know it is counter intuitive, but it is never the less true.

    The Republicans are for business. All the businesses starting with the Mom and Pop to the big corporations. They, the Republicans, like the idea of a free market where competition decides which companies enter a market and which companies will succeed......not Washington, D. C. politicians and/or bureaucrats.

    "No Spin" for O'Reilly is when one of his guests calls Obama something like a serial killer and pedophile and O'Reilly is like "wait a minute...now we don't know he's a seriel killer or pedophile, there's not proof on that yet..." like shooting down ridiculous **** improves his "no spin" credentials.

    What facts did Obama present? Facts are results and he continues to run from his results.

    Thank God for the unbiased news of MSNBC/NBC, ABC and CNN.
