    I know all Presidents do this but lord I wish that the POTUS would just stick to the condition of the nation. We've heard about Haiti; we've heard about Afghan school girls; ugggh!

    Goddess forbid those suffering in Haiti should bring down the lightness of conversation and destroy the ambience at your cocktail party.

    As for raising the status of schoolgirls in Afghanistan, raising the condition of women and girls raises the conition of all in a country.

    Someone recently said that a country that cannot see to the rights and the needs of half of its own population cannot be trusted to do anything else right in managing the business of running its country.

    There really should be more to females than going the needy route and using porn to get a little attention.

    He threw bullshit all over the room, and said not one word about saving SS & Medicare. The DC whores know about peddling influence, not about fiscal responsibility. Maybe the next one will?

    Indirectly. He mentioned something about protecting the environment. He knows C+T is dead. That would be a devastating issue in 2010 and 2012.

    I also think the Sate of the Union is not a speech to put jokes into. It was unprofessional and unclassy and shows how much of a rookie this bafoon is.

    It was way to long and a rehash of a lot of things. His agenda ain't gonna fly here so now he must move to the center, or pretend to move to the center, iin order to get anything done.

    Freeze on Spending?? What a joke since last year they upped all the budgets by about 20% so the freeze is all smoke and mirrors.
