    Re: Obama State of the Union

    Let's see:

    [*]Takes credit for TARP but blames bush for the deficit
    [*]Says there's a spending freeze, but it's not actually frozen
    [*]Says business is the engine for job growth, but wants to tax large businesses and let the government "create" jobs
    [*]Says Republicans blocked him from doing anything but he's had a filibuster proof majority

    Did no one else think it was strange when he openly stated that he wants the US to have a government led economy like Germany and China?

    Did no one else think it was strange that he threw respect for separation of powers in the sewer and publicly embarrassed and intimidated the supreme court justices?

    Did no one else think it was strange that he said we can't freeze spending even though we have a deficit, then told the Republicans "that's how you budget", as if spending money you don't have is basic household finance?

    He says he wants to punish businesses for sending jobs overseas, he should punish government for sending jobs overseas by taxing, supporting labor unions and enforcing unneccessarily strict regulations.

    Overall, worst state of the union ever. Disingenuous, disrespectful, stupid and full of excuses for not actually doing anything in an entire year with total control of government. Not to mention 0 minutes spent on terrorism. Did I miss an Al Qaeda surrender or something?

    My question is about the tax cuts.

    What tax cuts?

    He's not talking about the one time tax CREDIT of 400 or 800 is he?

    Thanks, you just reminded me of another one. He wants to lower taxes on small business investment, but he is raising the carried interest tax on the firms that actually make investments in small businesses.

    Re: Obama State of the Union

    I was at least glad he made financial reform seem like an important topic. I would really like to see this done. I am also glad he has suggested more investment tax credits and a payroll tax cut for those who hire. Those are good common sense policies right now in my opinion.

    Re: Obama State of the Union

    Ha. I loved the spending freeze back-and-forth.

    OBAMA: We're going to have a spending freeze.
    applause
    OBAMA: But it's going to be frozen next year, not this year. This year we're still going to spend the money.
    REPUBLICANS: laughter
    OBAMA: (to Republicans) That's how you budget.
    DEMOCRATS: applause
    OBAMA: That's how you budget.

    As if spending money you don't have is basic household finance. You tell 'em Barry!

    How did he not do anything? He sent more troops to Afghanistan, attempted to deal with health care (although that bombed pretty miserably thanks to Congress and the Senate), and he reached out to the Muslim world. That doesn't sound like "nothing" to me.

    Is this a joke? Seriously? How did he not do anything, he reached out and attempted. Awesome.

    So sending tens of thousands of more troops is nothing? What about health care? What would you have him do?
