    Interesting how quickly the Republicans stood and cheered though when Obama said that if they had a better plan, he'd like to see it.
    But of course, they'll present a plan which is as bad as the one already on the table. And nothing will get done either way.

    Which lies specifically bothered you?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    If there is no good site, and currently there may not be, then there is no good site. You don't just embrace a flawed site because it's all you can find.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think it was wonderful where he nearly exposed one of the conservative Supreme Court "judges" for being disrespectful....probably white trash...
    and this I will not take back, I just have too many suspicions.

    I think he made it blatantly clear that he no longer cares about health care reform. If they don't pass a health care bill, I will not be voting this November.
    I think he was chilling/backing off healthcare for the night because there are more important things that people care about?

    I loved what he had to say about education & community colleges and would love to see what he said about those things happen.

    Obama is totally screwed because he had so many things to deal with and no matter what issuse and how much time he spent on each one? There are gonna be people not happy about the content nor the time he took on each subject.

    In otherwords what he failed to spend more time on matters to you while what he did spend time on matters to others.

    Don't you think that one of the most powerful men in the world should have a bit of arrogance?

    I think some people mistake arrogance for confidence and strength

    I'm fine with a bit of arrogance, it's when it's full blown like this case I get a little po'd

    I think some people mistake arrogance for confidence and strength
    Nah, I'm confident, and I can smell smug and arrogant from a mile away, I know you're an Obama fan and that's fine, but I still say he's way too smug for what we're getting out of him.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
