    arguably one of his dumber ideas. you don't fix a bubble by inflating it further.

    Re: Obama State of the Union

    Three things were really telling for me:

    1. The first - Obama called for the large banks that used bailout money to give bonuses to executives to pay back the money before giving handouts to their CEO's.

    The Democrats applauded.....the party of no...the party that never saw a corporate executive that it didn't want to give a payout to....sat on their ass.

    2. Immigration - Obama called for the strengthening of our borders.

    The party of no....the party that LOVES the cheap labor that supports big business for low cost.....sat on their ass.

    3. Obama called for more prosecution of civil rights violators, equal pay for women and the end of Don't ask/Don't tell.

    The party of no....the party that fights against equal rights for minorities....that fights against protection of rights for women and the party that seeks to keep gays as second class citizens.....sat on their ass.

    Americans saw the clear and obvious difference between the two parties tonight.

    At least he's better than that Jindal idiot that did the last one.

    That was great comic relief.

    McDonnell is a horrible public speaker.

    That's because the banks already paid it back. This isn't a matter of different opinions, it's a matter of fact. Obama is lying to your face and you're slurping it up.

    But the government is projecting a $19 billion profit and perhaps more on the $245 billion lent to banks, through interest, dividends and the sale of warrants the government received as collateral.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/07/business/07tarp.html

    Explain how a $120b tax on banks is designed to "recover" the money we gave the banks when the banks earned the government $19b+ in profit.

    2. Immigration - Obama called for the strengthening of our borders.

    The party of no....the party that LOVES the cheap labor that supports big business for low cost.....sat on their ass.
    Have you ever watched a SOTU before? The way it works is that the President's party applauds everything while the minority party only applauds things that they unequivocally support.

    The conclude that that means that the Democrats want more strict immigration reform than the Republicans, you would have to have completely ignored the party platforms over the past decade.

    I'm sure you saw the difference, but I don't think that's due to any particular qualities of the speech.

    Of course I've seen many many SOTU speeches. Personally, I think the cheerleading is ridiculous.

    the party in power always looks idiotic cheering practically everything that th President proposes...

    However, I found it very telling, what the Republicans responded to and what they didn't. I said the same of the Democrats in past years.
