    Oh and also the following Republican Response? What's your reaction on that? Who do you believe more, the President or the Republican response? Which side do you believe was more effective (and/or convincing) in making their argument.

    Ive been thinking about this for a while. :razz:

    Let me know your thoughts!! :razz:

    I got tired of Obama raising and then dropping his hands on the podium. It became very distracting with every thump of his hands, lol.

    Here is what I think. Obama is planning to redesign the American flag by taking out the Stars and putting in a hammer and sickle.

    For a state of the union address I heard very little about the state of the union. Instead I heard a lot of "I will do this" and "I will do that".

    In essence it sounded like he plans to create the perfect world....put food on everyones table, a roof over everyones head, keep taxes in check, increase employment, increase business development, become a leader in clean energy and so on and so on.

    Sounds like a plan.

    The problem is, do we expect any president to say his plan is to do otherwise?

    It was a campaign speech and nothing more.

    Oh, I agreed with much of what he said. I just have serious doubts this administration can follow through with their promises.

    hmmm...that was a SOTU speech? I thought he had started his new campaign.

    Didn't watch the Republican response. I was too busy throwing up

    Exactly how can you agree or disagree with the proposals if you are not aware of what needs to be done to acheive them?

    I mean...who would disagree with the idea of increasing employment...
    Who would disagree with ensuring no one is hungry?
    Who would disagree with decreasing the debt?

    Give me the "sacrifices" that are attached to those "plans" and then I can say the sacrifices are worth the results...or not worth the results.

    This that poll is garbage to me.....it is simply 83% of the people saying they like the way he said what he said.

    My point exactly...

    He simply said he wants to make the perfect world. Who doesn't?
