I got an email today from Phil Hare about the State of the Union address, and he was raving about how Obama is trying to make a better world for all of us. I called him down on it and told him that the Supreme Court did NOT permit foreign companies to contribute to American elections and candidates. In fact, they specifically prohibit it in at least 3 places. I suggested that Obama should start reading the things he is adamantly criticising. And the Constitution was designed so that he (and others) could not influence the workings of the US Supreme Court nor the Congress. (Franklin Roosevelt tried, though.) If he doesn't like that he should have gone to some other, socialistic, nation and became their president. In America, we like our Constitution just the way it is, thank you. And we happen to believe that America is the GREATEST nation on earth, not one that has to be 'fundamentally' changed. And wasn't that great when he told us how he is trying to promote those wonderful PROGRESSIVE ideals that America had a century or so ago? Hillary Clinton also believes that the PROGRESSIVES are our heroes and we need to 'return' to those ideals! What idiots! Do they not know that WE know what a progressive is? WE just ended the Cold War with some of those 'progressives' and now we want to be just like them?

Yeah, riiight!

Learn from the mistakes of others. Life is too short to make them all yourself.

When he starts stepping on big money companies, he starts getting slowed down.

They (big money) see what has happened to the banking industry and the auto industry.

Forewarned is forearmed.

Sadly, the everyday, ordinary American citizen won't be made aware of this.

Ya'll it's just plain and simple HUBRIS. And since we don't have it, we're having a hard time understanding it. If we were SOBs and jerks, maybe we'd get it. emoticon

well, that's just the point--he's NOT a leader! He's still campaigning.

I think Congressmen should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers, so we could identify their corporate sponsors.

Beck pointed out that Obama has 30 former lobbyist in his cabinet. I can't believe a leader in this country could say I don't care about what the people want, what congress or the supreme court say, I am ramming my progressive agenda down your throat.

The only thing I'm continually surprised by is the man's arrogance and audacity. What disappoints me is that there are still so many who are turning a blind eye to it all.

Within 24 hours after pledging to the American people that he'll curb the influence of lobbyists, Obama held a private, by-invitation-only teleconference for lobbyists and other "stakeholders". No doubt these teleconferences can't be organized at the last minute, so it is safe to state that Obama had this already planned while he was telling the American people that he would do otherwise. But, should we be surprised? No. Here's a link to a great article about this: thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/7864

The White House response was that other administrations have done this. Yes, but isn't Obama the one who campaigned on change? Isn't Obama the one who pledges less influence by lobbyists? Isn't Obama the one who pledges more transparency?

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.
