    So America concerning the state of the union was it spot on or just another spew of lies? Good policy or wishful thinking? Hmm only the people know...

    Rebuilding American infrastructure instead of countries we bombed?

    Republicans call that wasted money and a good investment. Democrats call it the same thing, only the order is reversed.

    It was the same ole same old.

    For a guy that's supposed to be soooooo smart he really doesn't have any new ideas

    It was a campaign speech. Nothing new in it. He doesn't even seem to think there is a problem. Hell. He's still pushing his green bs.

    As Skull says, same old same old.

    I much preferred Mitch Daniels rebuttal. He actually spoke about what was wrong and the need to fix it.

    To bad he won't run for POTUS.

    New ideas? Sometimes it seems he is only one in Washington with any ideas other than apocalyptic visions of decline into third world status.

    I do agree his very few ideas are the only ideas coming out of Washington. Now good or bad we"ll see

    Is "rebuilding American infrastructure" the new euphemism for "shovel ready jobs?"

    Personally, I agree with most of Obama's "old" ideas. Suggesting otherwise you must have better ones. What are they? (I can guess, but I'll wait and see if you respond and have anything new).
