      Translated it means "I wanna spend a few more trillion wastefully, and if it doesn't work, it's Bush's fault.

    It also means the presidency is paralyzed by cultural socialism otherwise known as political correctness.  Progressives live in an alternate universe of happy lies.

      No kidding? Let me check the log: who still believes Iraq was justified? Conservatives. Weapons of mass destruction? Conservatives. Who believes evolution is a scam, even though it is evidenced daily in our lives with things like antibiotic resistance? Conservatives. Who believes the founding fathers were evangelical Christians? Conservatives. Who thinks the dictionary, the Bible, and even user edited Wikipedia are too liberal so they want to rewrite their own? Conservatives. Who believes that they are NOT paying for other people's medical care right now? Conservatives. Who thinks because Nazis had socialist in their name, that they were socialist? Conservatives. I can go on forever. Honestly, you people are the least informed group in this country. PS - I think it is hilarious that you call Iraq and Afghanistan Obama's. What a joke. Do you teach your children with that idiocy? Of course you do.

    His speech was awful.  The delivery was monotone.  And we were supposed to get out of Iraq after the surge anyway so what he said about that part is not really news.

    oh brother... the President is awfully snippy these days:

    Milwaukee Speech

    it's funny to hear him talk about how sacred police officers are after his blasting that police officer for performing his duties as he saw fit and then calling a "Beer Summit" roll over the whole thing.

    what was the point of this speech? to talk to his constituents or to just attack others? didn't he say once upon a time "all this bipartisanship has got to stop"?

    Not an impressive speech. Used to love his speeches. I seriously used to be a pretty big Obama fan, but it seems like his star has fallen a lot the past couple years.

    I'm more disgusted with his lies and his rantings every day! He sounds like the Reverend Wright's protege rather than our President. I can't wait until 2012 when he finally gets fired!
