    For the crises were in, will they suck it in and make a change, or buck up and cause more problems?

    I would say given the fact that blaming Republicans for his and his parties failures is ludicrous were I them I would be angry and dig in my heals but then I am just that way. The fact is the Republicans have been in the minority and have been LOCKED OUT of all the debates and decision making so how can they be to blame? Talk about spineless scapegoating. JMHO

    I think blaming the Republicans is exactly what he did. If you listen to his speech, he gives out the usual utterly monotonous lines. "This debt was here before I came in office." "We have to start putting our party affiliation aside and start becoming one as a unit." "Just don't forget... If you critcize me too much, I am black and can make you look like a racist (Okay, Maybe not that one.).
    The republicans are probably going to put up their guard some more. It was a brash speech from our dictator... COUGH!... I meant, president.

    What did he say different than last year? Now he's going to make unemployment his priority? Let's see if he can f- THAT up as good as he's done healthcare.:lol:

    Boy you people must be blind, deaf and dumb. He didn't assign blame only to Republicans, he did factually explain what happened last year, previous years to that and what he expects going forward.

    Cons are suddenly so overly sensitive having anything negative said about their run with power. Telling... Defensive...

    The speech was hard hitting, he looked like a leader, confident and telling it like it is.

    Sheesh!

    Unemployment in a way is his priority. He wants more of it. REALLY!!!

    All of his policies are geared to causing jobs to go away making us poorer and putting us under the governments thumb.

    He's not gonna really focus on jobs or the economy. He's just saying that to get some of the heat off his behind.

    His focus is health care. That's the key to enslaving us. If he can't get that then he's failed. Once he gets that he was gonna nationalize the oil and energy industry.

    He couldn't help accusing the Republicans of getting in the way. Yet he still has 60 votes as we speak in the Senate. What's been stopping him all of this time? Not the Republicans. Scott Brown has not even taken his seat officially and he's already blaming them.

    pfffffffft

    What I heard last night was OL'BO trying to cover his ass big time. He is now going to concentrate on JOBS, JOBS, JOBS. Something he should have been focused on all last year. Will have to wait and see if him methods to creats jobs will work.

    He's also going the popularist route via taxing the banks. Bad idea as the banks won't be paying those taxes, anyone doing business will. Sure it sounds good, but in a practical sense it just isn't very smart. Didn't hear a word about Fannie and Freddie though.

    Also heard him chastising Congress. That was a hoot. Will see if the Dems really want input from the Reps. Ain't holding my breath on that either.

    I heard a bunch of bs last night from OL'BO. Does anyone seriously think this guy is going to the center??

    I think the VA Gov was right on the money with his response. He made more sense in 10 minutes than Barry did in his 70 minutes. Just sayin.
