    Is he tearing up our freedoms as well? Some of us are a little concerned about that, Catawba. Can you keep us posted?

    Dammit! Mr. Speaker, open the Articles of Impeachment, and open them now on the Solyndra scandal. This crook must now be allowed to have another term to continue his corruption

    Liblady, people have been arguing this point on DP since Gingrich released his effective tax rate. The President of the United States should not make that mistake. It is terribly misleading. (And it was no mistake.)

    As to my second puke -- -- first, he had the perfect opportunity to put this in place when he bailed them out. To now try to guilt them into refinancing is ridiculous. PLUS those people with a pulse on the real estate market know that those who are having trouble refinancing run into one of two problems: #1, They are upside down and could never get their home appraised; #2, Their credit has been ruined by the downturn and they'd never qualify for a mortgage.

    On the home front...way too little...way too late.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    So question....

    Did we enact things to expand our oil production 10 years ago, under Bush, and that's what is coming to fruition now?

    OR

    Is it actually possible to expand oil production currently and it come into play sooner than 10 years?

    Because one or the other has to be the case if Obama's statements about Oil production is true.

    Buffett paid millions in taxes. what did his secretary pay? his effective rate is 17.5% or so. She would have to have earned income of well over 200,000 with no serious deductions to pay an effective rate that high

    marginal rates mean nothing in this debate

    what catawba is saying is that Obama-a guy who became a millionaire from winning public office and who is banked by millionaires like Goldman Suchs and Soros as well as the hollwood libertines-is bashing the rich who are wealthy despite the government.
