I don't even know who would watch to watch a liar speak. He is so pathetic and never lets up. Anyone who would believe anything he says has to be checked out !!! He has done all he can so far to ruin our wonderful country and take away the pride of the American people. He just wants to throw stuff in their faces so they vote for the democrats an what is so sad it works for some people at the expense of others. He will be know as a lame duck president. Have you noitce how people call him Mr. Obama more the President Obama. I know how they feel, because I would never ever call him my president I hate liars !!! God Bless America !

This man should be impeached. He belongs in Hollywood along with the rest of the stupid liberals. Someone should send him Ben Carsons book, "America, the Beautiful" so that he can learn something of the Foundling Fathers. I have a name for this President, " All Flack-The Lame Duck President. I could go on, but its useless with the suck-up liberal media disguiseing every bad thing our President does.

How can the president have a war on poverty when the government keeps taking money from the eldery and the disabled? I think it is great that President Obama is proposing things to help bring people out of poverty by getting them better educated, by encouraging companies to bring jobs back to this country, by pushing for higher minimum wages. But he is pushing people who depend on Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and Food Stamps further into poverty by making cuts. Why? So that the rich can get richer? The State of the Union Address was entertaining to watch and listen to. President Obama is a very good speaker. But much of what he said didn't impress me. He does a lot of talking, but not so much doing.

Didn't watch...have no interest in anything this man has to say. He has successfully divided our nation and does not need to be ashamed of himself. I'm ashamed enough for the both of us.
