    Oh, my, the horrow of it all!! You evil rightwinger!No wonder the country is going to hell in a handbasket with thought s like that, ROFLMAO! States' rights? How dare you put responsibility back at the state level! We all know that Federal Bureaucrats in D.C. know what is best for the state and local communities.

    Thats the funny part...I make no bones about my right wing status...Im VERY conservative...Im an extremist. I believe in personal and government fiscal accountability. I believe most elected democrats exist by exploiting workers...providing handout programs that do just enough to keep poor people poor and then pull back that support if anyone dares to begin to do well on their own. I support others rights...even rights I disagree with. Im as repulsed by the out of control republican spending as I am about the democrat spending. I'm disgusted by whiny bitches that spend the bulk of their life rolling on their back and pee on themselves complaining about what others have achieved and place virtually no effort or attention to their own failings, and I dare to believe that most of those people COULD actually be successful if they just believed in themselves and not the message that they cant...and its ok...its not their fault...and government should force rich successful people to take care of them. Im a very bad bad man.

    4 empty talking points from Fox News + 1 unoriginal Strawman. IMO you basically just copy/pasted something you heard on right-wing media, however have no real understanding of the subject matter. Prove me wrong.

    Can you back anything up with a deeper analysis--be more specific, show us you really understood what the President said. Show the 'bashing Bush' language and explain why it was not a fair criticism of policy.

    Give us example of "lies" -- please include links to fact checks or evidence.

    Your vague and meaningless talking point posts continue to back up what I believe to be the truth about you.

    What really scares me is that it seems that many of those spouting the big central govt. rhetoric here are young, inexperienced and being spoon fed by someone that big govt. is responsible for individual responsibility issues. Hopefully that is not the education system today but I am afraid it is. It is quite scary when 47% of the people in this country don't pay any federal income taxes meaning that 53% fund the Federal Govt. Think those not paying any Federal Income taxes have any problem raising taxes on the other 53% that do? The best way to create permanent power is to give people what they need and thus keep them dependent. Dependent people are growing in numbers thanks to Democrat social policy. The Obama brainwashing has convinced people that tax cuts are an expense to the govt. when tax cuts actually take away govt. power.

    i suspected that if i stayed around this forum long enough i might finally find a point with which you and i agree
    it happened
    tax cuts do take away government power

    without adequate revenues the government would not be able to defend our nation
    without adequate revenues the government would not be able to offer assistance to those who are without the ability to care for themselves
    without adequate revenues the government would be unable to educate our next generation to assure we remain globally competitive
    without adequate revenues the government government would be unable to install, maintain and replace critical infrastructure essential to the economic life of our nation

    what seems lost on those in the reich wing is that to once again realize a revenue surplus would be a good thing, so that we could show the world our economic house is in order and thus preserve the integrity of the US dollar. and this is vitally important. no one on these boards was around when the dollar was not the dominant international currency. few seem to have an appreciation for the massive advantage that currency domination gives our nation. our present economic strife will be nothing compared to what we will go thru if confidence in the dollar is lost. that $100 bill we print for a few pennies yields a huge equity - and a huge international economic advantage ... an advantage which will be forever lost if the profligate spending of the democrats AND republicans does not come to an end. that inappropriate spending includes the giving of tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires at a time when we have to borrow money from other nations to operate our government's essential functions
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Re: Obama: I'll cut $4 trillion

    today:

    President Barack Obama anchored his State of the Union address with a call for increasing investments in areas such as education, infrastructure and innovation — targeted spending he said would help create jobs and strengthen the country while the administration also tackled ballooning budget deficits.

    He spoke in epic terms as he described America’s challenge to “win the future” after a period of economic turmoil.

    “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment,” Obama said in January. “We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to outinnovate, outeducate and outbuild the rest of the world.”

    But in recent weeks, Republicans have shifted the conversation in an entirely different direction. Instead of talking about small increases to select programs, Washington is preoccupied with preserving existing programs from cuts at every turn.

    As Obama celebrated the budget compromise he struck with Republicans, the soaring Sputnik rhetoric had vanished. Instead, he emphasized programs that Democrats had “protected” from GOP cuts.

    “Beginning to live within our means is the only way to protect those investments that will help America compete for new jobs,” Obama said last week. “We protected the investments we need to win the future.”

    the slasher's sadsack sotu was only last january

    america has never seen a chief exec routinely drop his stated agenda, as put forth in his yearly address, so regularly and quickly

    in 2010, before barack hussein became the slash, his sotu priorities included his bank tax, his spending freeze and, of all things, his debt commission whose recommendations he still appears not to have read

    within days, he'd dumped em all

    he has the attention span of a teen

    this year, it was all wtf, win the future---what became of that

    it's all in the same dustbin with his 2012 budget proposal published in february

    which beats 2011's, never written or submitted by the party still in power

    does he really believe we weren't watching

    the point is---the slasher's recent class warfare and hate the rich rhetoric will be dropped as fast as the bank tax

    since he can't put up, ie, since harry won't be able to hustle anything hard or real, the slash will soon be forced to shut up

    and so here we are, just where we were before the slash's pusillanimous politicizing of our planetary problems

    green energy, infrastructure, obamacare and hate your neighbor

    leadership, anyone?
