    I liked that the Democrats kept clapping and springing up and down and pretending that he had accomplishments when he didn't have any.

    Oh the best punchline was when Obama effectively said that he inherited debt from Bush but that the way to fix the economy was to get into more debt but then debt was bad and the government has to watch their expenses.  It was like watching a dog chase after his own tail.

      I don't know if he did much of anything else but he did head off a terrible depression.  Maybe that was a bad thing in the long run and maybe the banks should have been let to fail.  But the last time that happened it took us over ten long years and a World War to crawl out of the hole.

      If Obama beckons back to "W" it is with good reason.  "W" was bailing out of office the way he left most of the companies he had a hand in.  Either bankrupt or close to it.

      As everyone tells us about "W", only time will tell what kind of president he was.  At least we gave him eight years to screw it up.  Obama only gets a year?

        In fact George W Bush got passed the Medicare Drug Legislation during his term to help Seniors, He led from the front on it and it passed. The pure politics of this so far are that he and the Dems wanted it to be contentious so when it passed they could say look what we did, (similar to civil rights leg in the 60's) and have folks beholden to them.
        That's the why of the way the legislation was crafted and ehy the repubs were cut out. It's backfired because we read the legislation and even an old soldier like me can see its not a good thing for our country the way they want to do it. Now he's got to compromise because that is the only way anything will get passed in the senate. Thanks to independents like me in Mass. God Bless em!

      I don't slam Obama or congress for the TARP legislation though I think the Car Company Bailouts were overdone. And the Bank Bailouts had some real holes in it that shouldn't have been. But I would also remind you that it was started Under Bush and continued with Obama. The issue I have is tghe blame Bush mentality that continues a year later, it's time for him to take ownership good and bad and move forward. Bush is gone and thats that.

      See half the story again, this all started when Congress told Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (Responsible for 80% of Home and business mortgages) and The Fed Chairman to lower interest rates and structure loans so more low income folks could own a home. They did what Congress wanted, and the more the did and the riskier it got the more Congress (Dems in Charge by then) wanted it. Till  it started coming apart. Then Congress blamed them. and all the rest of the banks, Two of the biggest Targets right now (Goldman Sacks, and Morgan Stanley) weren't even banks at the time, The Treasury Sec and Fed Chairman begged them to become one so they could take over WAMU and and Lehman Bros. Now they are sucking up the blame.

            No, JP Morgan Chase is different from Morgan Stanley, and it was JP Morgan Chase that took over WAMU.  I know this because I banked at WAMU and am now at Chase.  Chase is a very health bank. Morgan Stanley may have taken Lehman assets over of divisions that were not affected but the majority of Lehman was allowed to fail.

              No argument on Lehman failing, it was Morgan Stanley that came in and kept the insured accounts whole at the request of the Treasury. And I concede the JP Morgan thing I had WAMU Credit cards that made the transition through he maze. But never the less the Last of the Investment Banks became retail banks at the insistence of the Government, had the TARP money pushed on them, paid it back with interest and are now taking the heat for the rest (Fannie Freddie and AIG)

    It wasn't the banks that were totally at fault. It was the democrats.  They forced the banks to be part of a lending program by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, whereby they would loan to people who couldn't afford homes to buy a house with little or no money down and it snowballed from here.

    Bush was bad in his second term, and Obama is going down that same road. When McCain suggested taxing big insurance policy during the campaign, BO blasted him for it. Now Obama is trying to do it - unfairly. Unions don't pay the tax, but the rest of us do. Totally unfair! I turned against the health care bill when BO sold us out to big Pharma. At that point, I realized he didn't really care about us. And what about all the pork in this bill? It's ridiculous. If they want health care reform that will truly benefit us, the bill wouldn't have so much pork attached to it. And why won't the dems include TORT reform? See who gets the huge donations from trial lawyers. Look it up - the information is available to the public. BO also promised that these negotiations would be on C-SPAN. Another broken promise.

    I actually believed that BO would be somewhat different. Silly me!

    hmm Health in Canada is governed by the gov't to prevent the high prices medical professionals can charge. US doesn't have that control so prices are set competitively between dr's and medical facilities plus adding other health services, for a price. So Canada loses their dr's. Prices will keep rising because there is a high population of elderly and upcoming generation with illnesses. Should there be a cap on health service charges or just keep paying out the high prices?

      Frankly, it sounds like you guys are screwed.  If you cap, how are the medical professionals going to earn a living commensurate with their expertise. How are they going to maintain facilities. Also, how are they going to cover all that geriatric care.  Your gov't is going to have to decide who gets care and who doesn't (death panels).  This is what we're trying to avoid.

      Right now the insurance companies have exemptions from anti trust regul;ations, what doctors charge is what insurance companies will pay, the Drs haven't set their prices since the 60's.

          The reality is the majority of the people who pay insurance get treated and those that can't afford it get treated.  You've been talking and reading too many leftist people and programs.  But you're in Canada, so it's not like you get a lot of variety of views.

              No, not really.  It's well known that American educators skew leftist/socialist.  And if you're family skews that way, well...

    Looks like you had your hands full last night, Dame.  lol

    Here are my thoughts on the State of the Union address.  They'll be brief because I have to get ready and go to work soon.

    I liked that he challenged both parties to stop worrying about sound bites and behaving like every day is election day.  Specifically, he called out the Democrats for their cowardice and the Republicans for their opposition just for the sake of opposition.  This is what people on all sides are so angry about and this is what must change. 

    I liked that he's going to continue to fight for a health care bill. 

    My reaction to the targeted spending freeze is "meh."  It isn't really enough to have a large effect on the deficit, but it should play well with a certain sector of the public who always want to cut government spending.

    Repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell: it's about time.

    I liked that he will pushing for legislation to counter the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding corporations. 

    Overall, I thought his ideas will appeal to most Americans. The reality is that he will have to fight to overcome the Democratic scaredy-cats in the Senate and the Republican knee-jerk opposition to get anything done.

    Hi Pretty Panther, smile thanks. I agree that Obama will have a fight on his hands but I think behaviors say a lot about a person and in Obama's case, a party tongue lol. Opposition to do good things is a crime? hmm yeah, ok. I just like giving benefit of the doubt and believing in those that want to do good things smile especially for others.
