Welcome to the first $Billion$ Campaign in our Nations history between multiple millionaires....Obama is a liar and Romney is out of touch. Where are we heading and why do we continue to elect these "leaders"? we must as a country get beyond the petty party lines and elect some people that will fix what's broke, for our country, not a huge pension or re-election. It starts here at the state level and grows to the federal elections. I could go on for days...but I'm not saying anything you don't already know.

When did Obama lie? I missed that one.

Liar might be strong...endless campaigning might be better. Although I do remember him promising to be a 1 term president if he couldn't fix the economy....nothing is fixed, just listen to his speech. It's the same speech we have been hearing since his last campaign 4 years ago. Expanding government and adding government jobs is not a long term solution to our nations problems.

You "remember" him promising to be a one termer ? Your memory - and your reasoning powers - are both severely lacking.

Not that it matters, but if you have a few minutes, run the following Google searchs: 1. J Steen IL Patch. 2. J Steen WI Patch 3. J Steen SC Patch In a way, you almost have to feel sorry for the poor little cretin. As a matter of fact, I feel so horrible on the inside, I believe his unemployment benefits should be extended indefinitely, and his healthcare should be provided “free” of charge.

Waterloo IA June 27th: 'A year from now, I think people are going to see that we're starting to make some progress. If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition.'

The verdict is in. This speech was written at the level of an 8th grader. Two of Obama's SOTU's have been judged similarly. The lowest since 1934. What does that tell you about Obama? he is connecting with his base.

nice locker room speech, but you still need to win the game. last i checked he wasn't on the field .
A. M. Kelly February 10, 2012 at 12:29 PM
What an incredibly inept metaphor...Of course he's "on the field"....He's the president of the United States and he's doing his job and doing it well!
