    Lie much?

    From your link:

    Sounds to me like most Americans oppose his policies, but like his sound bites. Can't say I disagree with that myself, I love his soundbites, but his actual policies suck.

    This excerpt does very little to contradict the point of my thread. Do you realize how immature you sound when you are being argumentative for the sake of being argumentative?

    Do you realize how stupid you sound when you try to come off as mature?

    Your thread is titled that Americans favor Obama's economic policies. In an attempt to prove that you pulled a few proposals Obama threw out in his SOTU speech and showed they polled favorably. They do sound good, but anyone that actually understands economics knows most of it is bullshit. Have you noticed how the only thing Krugman had to say about the speech is that Daniels screwed up the numbers in comparing Apple to the car bailout?

    No, what I was doing was summarizing the findings from the article. The viability of the economic issues themselves is a separate issue.

    Idiot.

    Not if you are president of the United States, which Obama is. He should listen to his advisors and not make proposals simply because they will get him elected. I know life long Democrats that are upset over Obama's SOTU speech, the only people that support it are idiots and hacks, which are you? I vote for both.

    You haven't explained why these are such terrible policies.

    Because they cost to much and they generally don't work.

    Education suddenly became an issue ! In Kansas, we can't cut our eduction funding fast enough at the state level. That way, locals can decide if they want to pony up....and they will. With money that will stay in their own districts...not go to some NEA laden dung heap.

    The rest sound so good...more money for alternative energy. Did they ask how many knew about Solyndra ?

    Yeah, he reads a good speech.

    But to normal people, that's not enough. Let's see what he actually does.
