    This is a really stupid thread. It's just an excuse for a bunch of mindless rant for Obama haters.

    Are you Joe Biden's speech writer? You say you are better off, but then rattle off campaign talking-points from 2012. LOL...

    I didn't watch either the president or Rubio, talk is cheap. Most of the rhetoric spouted by either party is to please their base. Now actions speak louder than words. I will do as I usually do, I will sit back with ear plugs on and watch what happens, what actions or non-actions each side takes. Whether the votes on bills are symbolic so they can say they are doing something while doing nothing or if the votes and debates are the real thing. I do not trust either party and in most cases, I rank politicians right below lawyers. But there are times when one needs a good lawyer and once in a long while, politicians actually come through.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Congratulations on being better off than you were four years ago, wonder if the 22 plus million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers plus the millions of small business owners that have gone out of business feel the same way? Wonder how many of them are benefiting from the booming stock market which apparently seems to mean to you that when things are good on Wall Street they are good on Main Street? Were you this excited when we had a record high stock market in 2007?

    You claim the economy was plunging into the abyss, did you get that out of the media reports? How did the recession of 2007-2009 hurt you or your family? Try living with 17.5% interest rates and 10.8% unemployment along with high inflation.

    You are typical of the Obama supporter, someone who ignores history and reality and simply buys what he was told. Sounds like a poorly informed voter to me.

    LOL, a vision for the country? To me it was another speech where he gave people like you what you wanted to hear and will do what he has done the last four years, whatever he wants to do that has nothing to do with the vision he laid out last night. An Obama supporter buys rhetoric, a conservative buys results. when will we get strong economic growth, job creation, fewer people dependent on the taxpayers for assistance and a reduction in the 16.5 trillion dollar debt?

    Your'e refering to a "bait" thread.

    Look if morons claim that what we're currenty experiencing is "growth" and a "recovery" then its not our fault if we come in and tell the truth.

    Don't run off at the mouth with lies and misrepresentations and NOT expect to get challenged on your BS.

    I'm not a Lib, I'm not easily fooled or entertained.

    You dont want to hear the truth,go hang out the democrat underground.

    Very well stated, and you speak for many of us. Also, BHO repeatedly shouting "Take a Vote" was drama at its finest...and he certainly seemed to enjoy the attention it got. Perhaps he should speak to Harry Reid about actually bringing everything UP for a vote? Radical, I know, but I wondered....

    The cause of the economic recession is akin to building a skyscraper with a flawed structural integrity. The higher it went up the more stress was put on the structure until it reached a point were it could take no more and the whole thing collapsed on itself.
    Yet here we are today with people still blaming Bush while Obama put the people in his Administration that helped perpetuate the crisis, Geithner and Summers? Then there was Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Now you can bury your head in the sand, be a typical liberal blaming everyone else but liberal policies or you can come into the real world and understand that Obama is a social justice guy who believes in wealth redistribution along with being a lot like most Obama supporters knowing nothing about how our economy works.
