I’m waiting anxiously for the State of the Union address, I guess they were afraid to pre-empt American Idol.

First impressions would be this speech was more humble and “patriotic” than I had heard from his previous speeches. Just my personal impressions, but those two things always seem to be lacking when I hear our President talk.

I thought it was a fine speech. Wonderful words, however and unfortunately, saying the words does not make it so.

I try not to read between the lines and keeping a positive attitude has been hard this last year, but if we are to believe in President Obama’s sincerity, I would think that jobs for Americans should be first priority.

The best "you lie" moment during the SOTU address.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito when he mouthed "not true" while shaking his head no.

Too bad a camera can not read people's minds.

There were so many contradictions and loose facts coming from Obama's teleprompter, even the Amazon Speaker of the House blushed.

For me, the most telling part of the speech was our President's "admission" that he didn't properly explain his healthcare plan to the American people. So, we oppose it because we don't understand it? What arrogance and ignorance on his part!

Still pursuing Govt. Healthcare, Cap& Trade, Bank Tax, and only union green jobs--Give me a break! and a freeze of nothing to go into affect next year??? I think Florida should set a specific date for this President to get on the People's page, or Florida will consider leaving this Union permanently, along with the other disenchanted, fed-up States. Watch how quickly people would flock to our real estate if they didn't have to answer to this socialist govt and continually worry about the future of America.

After last night, I'm more convinced than ever before, that this guy is an empty suit driven by
a radical movement that is trying to take over this country. Where is his birth certificate anyway?

If I heard his speech correctly, I will have a son back here after August.

I will remember that in 2012.

When Obama was elected last november, his priority should have been the economy? Too bad he waited such a long time?
I really don't understand politicians? They always feed people with "Promises with the wind"?
Sideshow I hope for you that your son will be back after August.

I watched this speech and realized two some things. Obama is still blaming Bush for his problems. Let us not forget that, as a senator, Obama voted for every spending plan that came his way. Then he became president and has tripled the spending debt. He refuses to take responcibility for his short comings due to his lack of job knowledge. He is still giving campaign speeches with vailed threats and vague promises. Time for him to "man up" and realize people know what he is doing and don't want it.

First "responsability" is not spelling with a "C" but with a "S"?
Second, Obama had to deal with all the failures of the former administration.
Third, I agree that Obama didn't take the right direction in the beginning and I didn't agree with him about the way he choose his priority for the country!
OK Sportruck?

In the future, Anicou, I wouldn't be giving English advice: first, the correct spelling of "responsibility"; second, you say choose--should be chose.

You are right unfatcat! My French is better than my English?
I admit that I make mistakes with the spelling?
Pardonnez moi mon cher!:)
