    Republicans whine all day before the President's speech that he's not only "soft" on terror, but might even be, gasp, "European".

    Then stuff happens like pirates dying and Americans being rescued. Oops.

    I have to say I found The "Borowitz" report funny. (Just so idiot right winger say I believe this is a "real" news source, I know it's a "comic". They still insist I believe the "Onion" is a legitimate newspaper.

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – In what some critics are calling the most radical tactic ever employed in a State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama risked alienating congressional Republicans last night by repeatedly using facts.

    Mr. Obama stirred controversy throughout the speech with his relentless references to facts, data, and things that have actually happened, all long considered the third rail of American politics.

    Borowitz Report

    Oh, and Republicans refused to applaud the rebirth of the auto industry.

    Interesting that Obama, and you, both point to a strategy of no more bailouts, yet point to a bailout as something Obama did right.

    Can anyone explain that?














































    Anyone?

    Haven't read the links yet but we can add Gaddafi, al-Awaki, many top Taliban and al-Qaeda leaders and of course, the one that Bush was too bored and lazy to go after, bin Laden.

    Fact is, its the 21st century and even though Mitt and Newt both say they want bigger military and more wars, hand-to-hand combat, on the ground is simply beyond stupid. I'd rather see a very few deaths than another expensive war, with thousands and thousands of dead civilians and dead Americans.

    A deadly accurate surgical strike is intelligent and makes our point much better.

    Thank You Mr. President. And, when the pubs try to take credit for this, just ignore them. That's what the rest of us do.

    It seems that many GObP/Repubs don't take pride in their country. Its like Mitt saying he would let the housing crisis go on until total collapse and homeless Americans. Pretty stupid and doesn't do anyone any good, including his cronies in the banks.

    Now me? I'm proud that GM is Number One, over Toyota!

    I'm sure all the troops are happy their C-I-C once said as a cheerleader for terrorists..
    our troops "Air-raiding villages and killing civilians"

    YOU don't think the terrorists LOVED to hear words coming from US politicians.. cheering them on by calling ALL our troops civilian killers????

    The GOP is soft.

    That's why Limbaugh needs Viagra!

    Obama bailed out the U.S. economy.

    No more bailouts for banks.

    Give me a fucking break. If it had been Bush you people would be pissing and moaning about his illegal invasion of Somalia...



    Good Job Mr. President. Good job Navy SEALS.

    I think he's just fabulous at ordering assassinations. He's a champ at it.

    It's always this way.

    R President goes on the attack or gasp has terrorists waterboarded = bad evil bad evil bad evil bad

    D President goes on the attack, runs a war on Libya or in Bill's case Serbia, orders assassinations of Libyan President, Bin Laden, an American Muslim cleric and his son oh and is really really big on regime change = hero to Dems

    Nothing ever changes.
