    It's called leadership.

    When your boss tells you to do something, and tells you what the results will be if you don't, and you IGNORE him, he really has no choice if he wants the other employees to respond to him in the future.

    Perfectly stated view of authoritarians. Suck dick or face the consequences.

    Yep, they didn't say "how high" fast enough. It's good to be king.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith

    Bush did, but he likely followed it up with that ice breaking laugh of his.

    Then evidently, all leaders must be authoritarians.......

    Looks like BHO will be remembered mainly as Rubio's opening act. Even the BHO supporters can't think of anything better than to whine about illegal strikers and their defeat over 30 years ago.

    Not any different from "Pass this jobs bill now" ......... which never got passed, BS legislation that it was.

    Obama is full of ****. His voters want their free-stuff, and he gave them no reason to fear they would lose it.

    Re: SOTU Address:

    Eh nothing too crazy happened tonight. This is what we get when we have the same exact government that we had four years ago. Same old stuff Obama always talks about. It's fun trying to figure out what social issue he will drag up next. Will it be immigration? Or will he start blowing up GOP members with his drones? Find out next week!!!!

    I was expecting Rubio to knock it out of the park, but it didn't happen. I don't know if he passed the audition. Do you think Christie could have done a better job? What about Dr. Carson, the guy who gave the other speech a few days ago?? There are rumors that he could possibly join the 2016 line up! Frankly, with how great Herman Cain did in the primaries before, he dropped out, I think another black man has a good shot at becoming President. You never know what could happen in four years. That's a long time!!! Dr. Carson has a long time to build up his resume and get out his message to as many people as possible. I see him on Fox all the time now.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.
