    Pretty sure by then no neededly heroic prosperity-creating deeds will have been done.

    Then we can focus on electing the Repub candidate in November ..

    .. So he too can predictably repeat the same do-nothing-worthy behavior ..

    Well, things have gotten better for me since Obama took office, but let me let you in on a little secret. It didn't have anything to do with Obama, Democrats, Republicans, or anybody else. It was all me. Screw the politicians. I don't need 'em.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    This inept hack Obama has now fully transformed the once esteemed and omnipotent Office of the President of the United States to that of a carnival barker, trying to take your money to deliver a show hyped beyond the pale.

    The "listen to what I say, ignore what I do" President.

    May the Republc have endured its last SOTU by this jackal.

    I love how people give those "EVERYTHING!" responses, yet can't name one specific one.

    Seriously, you and I both know that's not correct. Now, change the wording to what he said earlier in the speech, to (paraphrased) "Warren Buffett pays less of a % in taxes on his income than his secretary," is possibly correct. His second statement? A lie. And don't say it was a mistake -- since the text of his speech was released beforehand. It was written that way. And it was written that way on purpose.

    So. If not 100% correct, you pay. Deal?

    **It occurs to me they may not even rate it...since surely she hasn't released her income tax return.
    If we go with his statement "Warren Buffett pays less of a % in taxes on his income than his secretary," yes, that is what I know to be true. Deal?

    Just as Mitt Romney pays a lesser tax rate than someone making $50,000 a year that you were sure was wrong, so you should have no doubts, right?

    Are any of those guys candidates???

    No deal. -- And you're parting shot off the bow that I was wrong isn't right either. You're batting zero.

    BTW, do you know what percentage Warren Buffett pays on his income? That answer would be, "No." Do you know what percentage the secretary pays on her income? That answer would also be, "No."

    Anyhow, I thought we had a sure contribution to DP on your behalf. But you weaseled...
