    We'll see. But like I said, corporations and unions have been spending money on political ads all this time, they just had to avoid the terms "vote for" or whatever. That's about it. So this changes very little.

    So a President should never criticize anyone in a SOTU speech?

    Hmmm.

    It's funny how you never noticed that every president does, in every single SOTU speech, until suddenly Obama did it.

    And if Obama thinks something is a legitimate threat to the Union, he should state it, which he did. It doesn't matter where the threat comes from.

That is why the abortion and gay marriage issues are so popular. It allows the parties to sound like they are have a different viewpoint w/o doing much of anything differently once in office.
    Money...just now...leads to faux diffs of opinion and sameness of outcome. Again, you stood cheering Obama's trillion dollar election win, the hope and change the defeat of Repubs....all more important than this brand new concern of sameness of outcome or faux differences.

    Merely tell me I'm wrong, merely tell me you weren't all swept up in election fever that Tuesday night, admit your concern for the trillions in sameness and faux differences wasn't top shelf then.

    No there is no reason to respond, yer not going to deny this is all brand new concern for you, we know where you were then.....therefore...we know where you stand today. This is a political loss for you, not one that brings concerns for sameness. Yer concerned this is gonna result in Republican bank accounts increasing......it's a valid concern.

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    It's even funnier how you seem to think it's wrong when someone else does it, yet use that as an excuse for your messiah to do it.

    Leading on a standing ovation behind the SCJustices is inappropriate and doesn't beling at the State of the Union. He disagrees, say so in a fireside chat or in one of the media stations he owns. The State of the Union isn't the place, the fact that you can't admit this is telling. Yer normally better than this, misterman.

    Is he a snakeoil salesman or a real leader?
    A real leader. He was magnificent.
