    May the Republc have endured its last SOTU by this jackal.
    Well yeah it does take a congress willing to do something to actually do something, I'm pretty sure Obama would do all that he says if he had support of congress.

    There is nothing of substance in any of this. It sounds good, all he speaks about is the gov't funding a bunch of crap. We don't have the money, bonehead. You spent it all. Get away from "the gov't is the answer to the countries problems" and change it to "the gov't is the SOURCE of the countries problems" and then people might want to listen to you.



    Better than watching Pelosi who looked like she was back there having an orgasm.
    No doubt, this is your idea of a great speech ...

    So basically this thread is dedicated to a poster that fawns at every minor quip by the speaker, and a range of posters who are ready to curse his name. Did I miss anything?

    Anyhow, I thought we had a sure contribution to DP on your behalf. But you weaseled...
    Not willing to put your money where your position was earlier today???

    Warren Buffett, like Romney, gets most of his income from investments, therefore I know his tax rate is going to be somewhere close to 15%, as was Romneys.
    And I know that his secretary who is required to pay both income taxes and payroll taxes on her entire income, that we she wlll have a tax bill higher than Buffett's 15%.

    And I am willing to bet that my claim, and Obama's, is correct. Why are you not willing to bet I am wrong as you maintained earlier?

    Because one or the other has to be the case if Obama's statements about Oil production is true.
    I think it is the result of something that happened under Bush; namely, skyrocketing oil prices which made a lot of formerly marginal wells and drilling projects cost effective.
