    Re: Obama State of the Union

    Blame Bush you are not smart enough to know I am right. Then he showed it is about his power hunger. It was all about Obama.


    Obama referred to himself over 100 times.

By the way, your article does say in the last paragraph that the banks will pay back the remaining 175 billion by next year. So, he is not exactly lying in saying they have cost us that much, but leaving out that information that they are projected to make the taxpayers a profit might change the opinion of a lot of people. I don't know what you call that, perhaps arguing with half truths.
    Yes, but the bulk of what is left is either scheduled to be returned on particular payment structures or is in the form of warrants that the government owns. The fact that the government is still holding onto those doesn't mean that they don't have the money - they just haven't cashed it it yet.

    Where Obama is getting the $120b figure from is when you add in all projected losses, regardless of whether they're due to the banks. That means he's trying to make the banks pay for the losses of GM, Chrysler, etc.

    Hilarious.

    Good one.


    Anyway,

    Treasury's bank bailout list - CNNMoney.com

    When the banks give us money, they expect more money back in return.

    If the government gave the banks a loan, why shouldn't we expect to be paid back, as quickly as possible?
    Haha. Panty Hawk. I would watch that show.

    Breitbart.tv 132: The Number of Times Obama Refers to Himself in One Speech
    Last week in Michigan he said it 132 times...

    He is very Lincoln-like.... not.

    He fails at salesmanship 101; of course, as far as Presidents go he only has 8% free market participation in his life.
    Other presidents were about 50%+.
    During his short spell he disdained his free market work. It shows.

    So, no wonder he (or his writers) know nothing about selling; the first rule being You, your and their being in the vocabulary as often as possible, and me, I, my as little as possible.

    Listening to it a second time... simply amazing.

    Palin nailed it... he is lecturing... like we are children.

    Interesting is during a focus group monitoring the speech, they found his claim that the economy being in recovery a huge oral feces.
