    The president could agree to an energy policy that increases American energy production and reduces our dependence on foreign oil.

    Now that's some balls. Bravo for her.

    Who gave the Republican response? Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. The land of lakes and cow teats.
    Not ONCE did he mention oil or energy.

    PoliticalCorrection.org..... a project of Media Matters. This is the OP's idea of a fact check source. And he wonders why I mock him.

    Yes it is, it highlighted Bachman's lies. Too bad her response wasn't aired on the networks and an analytical review wasn't offered but she's unfortunately considered a joke not to mention a diversionary attempt.

    She did no harm to either the president nor Ryan.

    Ryan talking about the accounting end of things sort of put people to sleep so no harm to the president there either.

    The sotu was a successful speech except for maybe the plane crash analogy. I liked his comments on the repeal of healthcare by the morons in the house.

    Not that Republicans won't get it all wrong and spin the fucking shit out of it, nonetheless..

    Who fact checked the President's lies? Or are you that naive that you still think he hasn't lied?

    This partisan bullshit is laughable. Seriously. Outrage at Bachman's bullshit, while allowing the bullshit to slide from the Dems.... pur-leeeeze. :lol:

    The only thing that changed since the Stimulus became law is the way they count the unemployed. They even announced this fact when it changed, so the numbers reported are not accurate. It's gotten so bad that when new job losses dips below half a million the Obama Administration throws a party.

    They don't count the actual unemployed, only those who are currently collecting unemployment. Those that lose their benefits go off the total. The actual unemployment rate is currently over 20 percent. Many of my renters have lost their jobs. In some states there has been massive increases in unemployment. Many illegal immigrants have returned to their country of origin, if they are able to, because there's no work here anymore.

    I didn't even mention Ryan's lies. Bachman is definately a liar and she repeats false talking points because she's too stupid to do any research for herself.

    Obama KNOWS what he is talking about. He writes his own stuff THEN it's tweaked.
