    Me too, getting disoriented

    There are for sure some ideas worthwhile, many of which will be incorporated into what eventually gets signed into law.
    It comes back to something I have been saying awhile no. If the republicans where to switch to a positive message, outlining proposals, and showing what they think should be done, instead of complaining about Obama, us liberals could be in trouble. Thankfully for us, they are not doing that.

    Terrible idea look at the credit card industry. Now you have only 2 states where credit card companies issue their cards from. So then there are laxer regulations for the insurance industries and we end up with the equivalent of delaware for the health insurance industries

    So, in short, you're just another O-bot?

    Re: Presidential Address

    ...the danger of too much government is matched by the perils of too little...
    I did not care for this part.

    I did not catch the whole speech. He seems to have loosened up a little and is talking more naturally. I think it went well as far as mechanics and delivery.

    Now to turn "partisan" (critical) I think he is misleading and I think he likes to try to make his political enemies look stupid or evil instead of actually disputing the "lies" they have been propagating. I learned nothing but I felt reassured.

    Yeah, but there's a huge difference in the message.
