    It really doesn't matter what Obama says. It's what he does that really matters. That's why I want to remind everyone that no matter what he says in today's State of the Union Address, he's still a liberal and always will be, regardless how centrist he or the media tries to make him sound.

    The latest fad seems to be which members of congress will be sitting together at the SOTU. In an act of symbolism some members from opposing parties will be noted by the media to be sitting together which breaks with recent tradition. In a congress that is so divided they will attempt to show us they have turned over a new leaf. After all of the "We won, so deal with it" talk, there is going to be an attempt to show unity. Seems kind of strange after all of the nastiness the Dems showed us the last several years. Now they want to get along and share responsibilities. Well, don't fall for it.

    After two years of unprecedented spending, and 4 years of political maneuvering, back-door deals, and behind closed door policies, the Democrats and the President finally feel it's time to act responsibly. Oh, and guess what; Obama is gonna ask for more money for a bailout. I promise you, he will. He can't help it. Instead of calling it a tax he will call it "INVESTMENT".

    Nope, I don't think anything has changed. The election may have put the brakes to this runaway government, but it's only temporary. They still intend on spending us into abject poverty, and they still intend on assuring that the United States pays for past transgressions against others simply for being a great country.

    Don't fall for the hype. The only way to keep a liberal or a progressive from legislating anti-business policies and practicing "Crony Economics" is by getting rid of them. They will still endeavor to fight climate change and they fully intend on spending billions to do it. The result will be higher prices for everything in our lives. Get ready for five dollar a gallon gas to be the new low point.

    Spending a minimum of $100 dollars every time you go to the store will be normal. Soon you will have to take out a loan just to put food on the table. We're only a few months away from that now regardless of the fact the Bush tax cuts are still in place. The pain from the last two years are just about to hit us. And the media will continue to show us a Centrist President who is thinking about the Middle Class, taking up the cause of the little man.

    Well, don't buy it.

    I think you're right. I've been (slowly and sometimes painfully) reading a book generally pointing in this direction - I just don't like the author's writing style. Obama is who he is - and that's it in a nutshell.

    Yep. Gotta agree.

    The only reason your seeing OL'BO move to the center is because the Dems got thier asses handed to em in Nov. He forgot America has always been a center right country.

    Cure??? Move, or at least, appear to move to the center.

    Thats exactly what he's doing.

    His ideology will always be left but he'd doing what he needs to do to be re-elected.

    As for the State of the Union?? It will be the same bs every Prez throws out every Jan.

    I've got my pretzels in the bowl and the beer on ice.

    Everyone said the success Clinton had was due to his drifting to the right, so the Administration has been fostering a more centrist image. Obama wants to be able to take 20 vacations a year and fly all over the world on our dime, so he's gonna say whatever he has to just to keep it going for another 4.

    You guys would't know a real leftist if he put your asses in a gulag.

    Such creatures exist but Obama isn't one of them.

    He's a Republican lite, actually.

    His actions and policies prove that beyond doubt to anybody who isn't slightely right of a John Bircher

    You might be very surprised by my response to the above opinion, Stephanie.

    Here it is:

    That's fine by me.

    When my choice is Sham Democrats pretending to be liberals, or Sham Republicans pretending to be conservatives, I understand that they have a distiction without a difference.

    I feel very much the same way when choosing between Coke and Pepsi, to be honest.
