President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday evening is likely to be viewed as a reelection speech, and the president's former chief of staff, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has some ideas about how the speech should be constructed.
The mayor told a panel at the University of Chicago that the president should say very little about his first term, and focus on what he would do in a second term. Emanuel said, "What you do with the first term is say, 'I inherited a mess, I did what I could to stabilize it, and here's what we're gonna do.' "

Step..1.. Lower taxes for those can afford them most, the job creators who choose not to create jobs, instead invest for themselves.
Step..2..start a war based on lies
Step..3..create about 5 trillion of unfunded liabilities, due to said war
Step..4..Bail out the banks to the tune of 7.7 to 13 trillions of dollars
The result is a f..ing mess, not hard to understand why we are where we are. All of the liabilities that Bush created, were unfunded.
“We like to say that dependability is more important than ability,” Bill Belichickism....
And nobody can deny he has done an awful job and made a bad situatin worse.
They can't? Wow.... I guess that depends on what you define as "awful." Anything that's not "great?" That's probably the case in the black-or-white world of the arch con, like you. But here in reality, there's a ton of gray.
I'll give him a C-. Mostly because of torture, expansion of fascist surveillance legislation and his Bush-League approach to regulating Wall St.
But none of that pales in comparison to the grade the Boy King idiot gets who came before him. And a lot of it is in an attempt to slowly mitigate away from years of "I break it, we all own it" ideology. Can't happen overnight. Can't happen in 3 years. But you know this. You just hate him because he's black, popular, suave and "socialist."
At some point, maybe you'll stop telling the forum what no one can do. Or how dumb it is to even ask. But probably not.
Been watching too many pubbie debates, and deciding that whatever three loonies and a "job creator" who guts healthy companies say is true?
Whichever way you slice it, the U.S. economy has now been creating jobs for 22 consecutive months.
Yes, everybody thinks everything does suck. That's because we continue, and will continue for some time, to compare the state of things to how it was before the Bush crash of '08.
The Obama Administration policies undoubtedly made things better, not worse. Spare me the idiot graph showing the month and day the recession bottomed. You know, I know, and whoever's your pubbie hero du jour knows that spending through your companies capital, holding on for dear life despite cratered demand, can damn well continue your company for a few weeks or months, just not years. Every damn one of us knows, whether we like it or not, that a whole system predicated on vanished liquidity, doesn't screech to a halt over night, but over months.
Since the trough? 3.2 million private sector jobs gained. Were the pubbies not busy cutting public sector jobs, someone might be giving this guy a nobel prize in econ to go w/the peace prize.
“More private-sector jobs were created in 2011 than any year since 2005,” Obama said today, taking credit for the gains. “After losing more than 8 million jobs in the recession, obviously we have a lot more work to do. But it is important for the American people to recognize that we’ve now added 3.2 million new private sector jobs over the last 22 months.”
In 2009 Obama signed an order closing Guantanamo, the most expensive prison in the world ($800,000 per inmate), which was a campaign promise. Later Congress passed a law indicating it could not close.
Last summer the american people favored, 75% approval, Obama's economic package, then congress defeated it.
In 2011 Obama tried to reduce military spending, now the rights favorite christian, Santorum, has vowed to reinstate the cuts Obama made.
The reality is that the way DC is working, it is not about the American people and what they want, it is about one upping Obama... and anything he says or does is automatically bad.
It goes on and on, contentiousness at its finest.. very little of what is happening inside the beltway is about the American People..
They know Obama is nothing but a "feel good social experiment" and they can't let him run amok, Obama IS NOT presidential material it would be a danger to America to turn him loose, America is much better off if he just continues to Play Golf,
