Obama Schedules Jobs Speech During GOP Debate

Obama Schedules Jobs Speech During GOP Debate

According to CBS News , President Barack Obama’s request to address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7, the same evening a Republican Presidential debate in California is scheduled to take place, has caused many people to speculate that the President did so in an attempt to overshadow the GOP.

“Our nation faces unprecedented economic challenges, and millions of hardworking Americans continue to look for jobs,” Obama wrote in a formal letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid requesting to address both chambers, reports CBS News.

Boehner reportedly joked that Congress needs a plan, not more discussion about the economy. The President‚Äôs planned jobs speech during the session has been lampooned as the same ongoing rhetoric about unseen job growth that has been promised for more than a year; criticism was heightened after Obama embarked on his ‚Äúrural economic bus tour‚ÄĚ earlier in the month.

White House spokesman Jay Carney reportedly said the GOP debate, ‚Äúone of many,‚ÄĚ was not something the President should have to consider in scheduling a speech and suggested the debate be scheduled later to give candidates an opportunity to respond to Obama‚Äôs remarks.

According to The Washington Times, Boehner later responded to the President’s request in a letter suggesting that the address be scheduled for the following day:

‚Ķas the Majority Leader announced more than a month ago, the House will not be in session until Wednesday, September 7, with votes at 6:30 that evening. With the significant amount of time‚ÄĒtypically more than three hours‚ÄĒthat is required to allow for a security sweep of the House Chamber before receiving a President, it is my recommendation that your address be held on the following evening, when we can be sure that there will be no parliamentary or logistical impediments that might retract from your remarks.

    All this fraud and his cohorts know is “playground” politics. Maybe you should schedule your jobs announcement between dora the explorer and mighty mouse episodes because those are most of the individuals you impress.

    • wandamurline

      First, he was only going to be on when the GOP was having the debate…he has since changed his mind and he will be opposite the first NFL football game. Wonder which one people will be watching? I’ll be watching football because all I hear from this POTUS is the same old thing….over and over….spend more to make jobs…spends, spend, spend….blah, blah, blah, blah. I am so sick of this man’s lies that I no longer watch him anytime he is on television, he makes me want to vomit. Vote in 2012 like yourlife depends on it, because it really does.

          The choice really needs no thought. I am not even a football fan and I would choose football over the current President. Let me see, a game I would probably find little interest in, or a President whose so predictable that he will talk jobs while proposing the very thing that will destroy jobs? Oh wait! Let me listen to another jobs destruction speech… no, not really. How about I spend my time reading about how to really create jobs and wealth instead? Because after our government has driven America into extreme poverty, maybe just maybe, some of us will preserve the knowledge of freedom and how that creates wealth. More government jobs programs, more government regulations, more government jobs, this will all destroy American job creation. Stop creation of the private sector. You know that part of the economy that actually FUNDS government. The more that government gobbles up, the less the private sector grows and eventually it will shrivel up and disappear. Remember what government gives, government can control and take. If the government can force your employer to pay you a raise, or to make someone hire you, then government can control your wages and your job. Government controls you. You only let yourself be deluded into thinking the control stops at your employer.

          • Jana

            It’s just going to be another speech, which he is famous for anyway. This country needs less talk and a lot more action! The only problem his ACTION is to put MORE regulations on business and farmers that will cost billions when we are struggling now.
            He wants to give another speech oh wow how exciting. I saw a movie RECENTLY that expresses the sentiment perfectly DULLSVILLE.

            Well Hooray I just heard on the radio Obama halted this proposal and withdrew it.
            That is a great tactic, make up a lot of retsrictions on the businesses and then just to show how really great he is (NOT) he takes them away. That’s right up there with not spending money you don’t have is saving money you don’t have.

        • Jana

          He is always late for his meetings or speeches so he may have to run late. When someone consistently runs late it shows a blatant disregard for others who weren’t late.

        Even one of the most rabid party line democrats said obama was wrong to schedule the speach opposit the GOP debate. The following two lines show that.

        ‚ÄúI do think this is a really big debate, and I think the White House was out of bounds . . . in trying to schedule a speech during a debate,‚ÄĚ Carville said.

        Given a ‚Äúchoice between watching a debate and the speech, I would have watched the debate and I‚Äôm not even a Republican or even close to being a Republican,‚ÄĚ he said.

    Unfortunately, except for Ron Paul, the rest of the competition will

    • Bob C.

      I see it the same way Tony

      while I support Ron Paul 100% and will vote for him even if I have to write his name in, I have to say, it’s not right we are not having a choice here, out of 320 million people, we get to choose from romney, perry, bachmann, and cain… all RINO’s, all have worked in big government for many years. god, bachmann was an IRS attorney, now taking over the tea party? cain worked for the federal reserve, and seems to really like the wars we’re in… really, perry and romney both have so much dirt on them, I can’t even go into it here… this is the best we have?
      they have long ago sold their souls to be where they are today,

      then we have barry…. Obama, no one can say for sure what his name is… but we should all know what he’s about by now.

      so what I’m being told here is, are choice are between a collectivist/socialist with an R or D after his or her name, or Ron Paul… a REAL constitutionalist, …and he’s the long shot?

      that’s really no choice at all… again…. just like in 08, we didn’t even have Ron, we had McCain…. and that guy is about as bad as it gets… next to obama that is…
      choice, land of the free? come on.

      I don’t know about you, but just like in 08, I feel like we are being herded.

      • http://Personalliberty Tony

        To Bob C.:
        Right on with your response!!

      • Brenda Choate

        Ron Paul has been a part of the Washington team also. Your faiure to note this fact shows the degree of dissatisfaction you have for the establishment.

        • http://Personalliberty Tony

          Dear Brenda:
          Ma’am, you have to call things the way they are. We keep going the way we’re going our society will be lost. Thanks!!

        • Average Joe

          While your comment is true concerning Ron Paul, he has never violated his oath of office by violating the Constitution in an way. Can you say that about any other “career” politician? Not likely.You might start looking into their voting records for the answer (in case you don’t believe me).

      • crystal

        If Ron Paul is the Republican choice (and we still have a long time) I’ll vote for him, but I don’t agree with him on several issues. If he’s not, then I will vote for the Republican candidate. I’m not writing in anybody’s name because I can’t take another 4 years of Obama. I won’t take that chance.

  • Betty Salsbury

    I don’t think that he was ever serious about giving the speech on Wednesday, I think he was just setting around thinking, “What can I do to ‘get up John’s nose today’”, alone with the rest of the conservatives. Most people believe this guy is as engaged in the welfare of this country as they are. First mistake, he could give a flying —-. He just wanted to have some fun at our expense, as he has done from the first day he took office, arriving late for the swearing in and then deliberately flubing the oath.

    • Bear

      And since that great day……………………nothing has changed.

  • william thomas

    Obama’s speech is scheduled at the same time as the GOP ,because he knows no one will watching his spwwch on jobs because there will not be any truths in it , nothing but lies.Thant way his image will not faulter any lower. Then the dem-o -rats can pick apart the GOP talks . When it comes to policy he is a cleveer rat and a dirty lier and will never stop spending till he completely ruins America.

  • iam

    Actually, they wanted that time-slot because they knew that no-one would be watching BO, everyone would be watching the debate. That way BO could say any stupid thing he wanted to, and there would be no dissent.

    Boehner joked “that Congress needs a plan not more discussions”. You’re now in charge of Congress Mr Boehner so where is your plan? Maybe it’s the Republicans who are passing the buck and not getting the job done. There is too much grandstanding in Washington and not enough accomplishments.

    • Bear

      C’mon eddie. Your tribe of morons has had two and a half years with Pelosi at the helm to start making a positive statement to the economy and all you have done is point your fingers at Bush and the Republicans every time you fell on your asses. It’s high time you started taking the responsibility for the failures your tribe has created. Take a few moments and read your Pelosi’s health care bill. You kinow, the one she said, “we needed to pass so we could find out what’s in it?” That’s the mentality of your tribe. Like saying,”let’s have a car wreck so we can find out how it feels.” Michelle Bachman just found the 105 billion dollar funding scam hidden in it that you Dems were trying to cram down our throats. There is no end to your tribes Chicago style politics and we, the free thinking people, are going to put an end to it.

      • Rick

        In the 2 years the Democrats were in charge (2009 – 2011) the economy was stabalized. Unemployment never went above 10% and the economic mess left by the Republicans was catastrophic. Read your history from 1929 – 1941 when we had the Great Depression…unemployment was over 25%. Since the 2010 elections, the Republicans did absolutely nothing to improve the economy. Now you want to bash the President when nothing in the way of improving the jobs situation was even introduced in the House. Get Real and study history or you will be doomed to repeat it!

        • Patriot

          Hey Rick,

          How about recent history, the Demorats controlled Congress from 2006 on? Oh, BTW your revisionist history about the Great Depression is completely wrong, please inform yourself first prior to babbling talking points! Can anyone realistically follow the leadership of Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Durbin, Barney the Frank, Shummer, Weiner, Sharpton, Napalitono, Biden, Kerry, Clinton…..my god we are at the very shallow end of the Gene pool. We need a skimmer to collect and clean up the scum! Let our work Begin!

          • Rick

            Patriot, the economy tanked in 2008 when the President was a Republican. Wouln’t your logic conclude that is is Bush’s fault if you now blame Obama for the problems since he was elected. How can you conclude that the stimulus plan failed if unemployment didn’t even come close to the levels in the 1930′s, and by any measure you can come up with, the situation in 2008 under Bush was the reason we are in this mess now. Please study Newton’s laws that described momentum. Do you really think the economy would completely turn around in just 2 yeasr?

          • Jana

            There was a plan, but Harry Reid in the SENATE would NOT let it come to a vote.
            Where is the Democrat Plan? Where is Obama’s plan? Oh that’s right, they didn’t have one.

          • eddie47d

            Then it is unanimous nobody has a plan!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Rick,
            how can he say it failed?? Because Nobummer said we had to pass it to keep the unemployment level below 8% (not 9 or 10, but EIGHT!). It has raised to as high as 9.8% since then and is just over 9% NOW! So yes, it HAS failed!!! Job creation has to be at 75,000 a month just to keep up with graduates and other NEW workers entering the workforce! 100,000 would just start making a small dent in the level!!
            Oh, BTW it’s estimated that private employers added 91,000 jobs in August, but that remains to be seen. Next months will be effected by the hurricane damage and tornado damage as well. Those will be temporary till the damage is repaired!!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Rick,
            An update on that Aug job report. It came out today that there were exactly ZERO jobs created for August!! the Market tanked 240+ points on the dow!! Dam that stimulus worked so WELL!!! A zero job rate hasn’t been recorded since near the end of the great depression!!!

        • Patriot

          Rick,

          On another topic, Government cannot do anything to improve the economy your primise is all backward, stopping looking for part-time politicians to come up with solutions. These people “all of them” are the problem! I repeat “GOVERNMENT CANNOT CREATE ANYTHING” expect possibly misery!

          • Rick

            You need to take a course in economics. Government spending, by definition, is a stimulus even if some of it is wastful. I am not advocating chaos in government spending, but you don’t have a clue as to how economics works during a business cycle.

          • Brad

            Rick,

            Government spending more then it takes in is by definition treasonus! Yes the government needs to live by our standards, if you spend more then what you have, you go bankrupt. You need the economics lesson more then the rest.

      • eddie47d

        Maybe that is the problem Bear the buck keeps getting passed back and forth and no one owns up to it.The Democrats see the problem with our health care system and are attempting to correct the discrepancies in what hasn’t worked in the past and that were plentiful. The Republicans work tirelessly to sabotage any reform instead of fixing those failures of the past.If the Republicans had worked with private insurers in keeping costs down health care wouldn’t have been such an urgent issue.

        • Bud Tugly

          Consider the payroll tax cut extension that Obama supports and wants to continue. This would help working class and middle class families. The GOP is opposing this tax cut extension despite all their rhetoric and pledges about taxes. What is with this? It seems that the GOP will oppose ANYTHING Obama supports even when he is doing the right thing. It is time both sides got off their intractable high horses and doing right for the country instead of stubbornly clinging tho their memorized mantras.

          And for all those who worship the Constitution and believe that all compromise is evil… do a little reading and you will learn that the Constitution, one of the most significant documents ever created by our species, is a triumph of compromise between honorable individuals with differing points of view. No one doubted that the all loved our brand new country, but had varying views on how it should be structured. It is time to get good faith negotiations back into politics and start putting the needs of the country before petty ideologies.

          The country is evolving as human knowledge expands and global circumstances change. We, as a species are evolving (sorry creationists), as technology, medical science, and environment influences impact human life. It is time our leaders started dealing with what our country and our world can become in ways that preserve the best of what we have been and build upon it for the benefit of all.

          As a fourth generation Republican, I left the party and became an independent. Most of what I see in local and national politics a scrambling for re-election, vilifying opponents in an appeal to more intellectually challenged constituents, and a cynical dumbing down of political speech into sound bites for the media.

          Read the writings of our brilliant founding fathers. Read anything even approaching their command of language and depth of thought lately? Seen any politician on the horizon with their sense of honor? Not too often.

          The founding fathers had very different points of view, yet they were able to overcome their differences and create the country we all love. Let us honor their legacy and try to move forward together by rising above petty nonsense an seek real solutions to our country’s problems. All this petty bickering and “gotcha” debates is accomplishing nothing.

          • independent thinker

            “Consider the payroll tax cut extension that Obama supports and wants to continue.”

            Oh, you mean the payroll tax cut that never should have happened because it will just hasten the bankruptcy of SS.

          • Bud Tugly

            how about the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy? They should ave happened despite their hastening of the deficit?

      I’d prefer they all just went home.

      “getting things done”= spending/borrowing more money on the necks of our kids, stealing more liberties and freedoms from us…
      buying more votes or paying back their buds that helped them get in.
      if “getting things done” was about repairing our government, get it back to the constitution, then I’d be all for it.
      but we all know that’s not what getting done.

      Exactly – the Right has been stonewalling this president since day one.
      The Right, particularly south of the Mason Dickson line, (it seems) cannot accept a half-white, half-black president. Some things never change … apparently the Civil War is still being fought.

      When Mitch McConnel declared that making Obama a one term president was his party’s number one priority, it should be no surprise Obama turned out to be a lame duck. When party’s put COUNTRY LAST, as both seem to do, not much will ever get done.
      The most patriotic thing EVERYONE could do, would be to not belong to any one party – be an independent and vote on the issues: Country First!
      Lastly, without huge reforms to our political system, it doesn’t matter who wins! Jesus Christ could down from heaven, win the election; money and power would defeat him in the end … his liberal policies would be declared socialistic!
      Ron Paul, even if he wins, won’t accomplish much. Bet my last dollar, if Paul becomes president, no one from Wall Street will go to jail!

        When you resort to calling people names, it is a sure sign that you are losing the debate. It also shows eveyone your lowbrow, knuckle dragging thought processes. As for your comments earlier concerning “economics”, it all depends on what economic model you adhere too. I am guessing that you are a Keynesian in your economic beliefs ( considering that’s all that liberal colleges teach). Some of us have seen the fallacies in Keynesian “theory” and have begun looking into Austrian economic theory (laissez faire) which has proven to be right (99.9 % ) more often than not. Thanks to Keynesian theory, government involvement in the economy has killed the economy.

        Before you comment, remember…I care not one iota about your opinion and whining isn’t pretty.

        Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

    Why didn’t we have a jobs plan 2 years ago? Oh, that’s right we did it was called the stimulus plan which failed, hey Mr. President get the hell out of the way before you bury what is left of the productive people. Also wasn’t he “focused like a laser on the ecomomy and creating jobs”? With that type of focus, please go on another vacation and here is a clue do not do anything, PLEASE!

    • Blueshoes

      Patriot,

      You’re right on target but those leftist ObamaBot will NEVER admit it. They wear blinders so that they can’t see the truth, so that they can keep TRYING to distract others from the truth.

      Close to 3 years later, he is still… PROPOSING, jobs plans but no one has yet to see one, same with the economy. No, BHO is ON-TARGET for what he wants for this country and that is to destroy it and turn it into a Communist, Socialist, Fascist failure.

      With very little research, anyone can find out what he is. Why is it he now has an uncle show up, who is from Kenya and is a MUSLIM but yet B HUSSEIN O is a CHRISTIAN?!?!?!?!?!? HUH?!?!?! His uncle is a Muslim, is grandmother is a Muslim (who stated he was born in Kenya), his father is a Muslim and he’s a CHRISTIAN?!?!?! In the Muslim faith, you either are a Muslim and if not need to submit to become one or become enslaved or be killed. WHICH has happened in his case?!?!?!?!

      I realize the Hared Core, Leftist ObamaBot will jump all over this post because they are so embarrassed to have voted this guy in, that they can not bear to admit they MADE A MISTAKE!!! Although it just takes a modicum of research, they won’t do it, soooooo… fire back dummies!!!

  • Brenda Choate

    Playing the blame game gets us nowhere. No one person is responsible for the economy. It took a lot of players to get us to this point and there is plenty of blame to go around for everyone. The driving force was greed, from the business man wanting better profits to the White House wanting more control. Yes the economy was great during Clinton, but the tech bubble burst. Housing bubble burst under Bush. The great ameican bailout was obama’s child. Obama can not create jobs, all he can do is over regulate and come up with more “Investment scams”. Stimulus did not work the last time, and will not work this time.

  • http://jassyl@centurytel.net James Kirksey

    When FDR did his fireside chats, Americans listened. In fact most previous Presidents could get an immediate crowd each time he said a word. However, we have heard he same old lies from Obama, read from a teleprompter too many times. I am no fan of the National Democrat Party and certainly not this Communist Branch, now holding power. But, President Obama has gone down hill since he sent David Axelrod to Chicago to work on his campaign. Without Axelrod at his side, he seems to be without adequaqte words to answer public inquires. It is a good thing for the Speaker of the House to decline stopping all his activities to accomidate an impromptu presidential announcement of a joint session of congress. This looks like another dumb political stunt of the Obama administration. However, this could be purposely done to take the public eye off the real dismal failed policies of bailout, corprate welfare, advocating rogue unions, run away spending, failue to enforce the current laws, gun running to Mexico, illegal military support of Muslim Brotherhood in Lybia, and many other things on his “wantabee dictator” agenda.

    James: You forgot- the acceptance of illegals in America with the promise of jobs that no AMERICAN CAN GET FROM THIS SO CALLED PRESIDENT. EVERYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE SCREAMS FOR IMPEACHMENT. IF HE DOES NOT GET REMOVED FROM OFFICE ASAP, THERE IS NO LONGER AN AMERICA.
    Mysteries scream FRAUD: America bought a pig a poke, who wants nothing more than to destroy AMERICA – THAT IS THE SLIMEY LEGACY OF THE FIRST BLACK SOCALLED PRESIDENT. REMOVAL OF OBAMA DOES NOT REQUIRE IMPEACHMENT. WHAT THE HELL IS CONGRES WAITING FOR?

    If it weren’t such a serious matter, it would be almost funny…listening to everyone complaining that this candidate did this…or that candidate did that ( as if the things that they complain about is something new….they aren’t). Then,
    when anyone points out that there is one candidate out of the whole batch ( both sides)….who has never done any of these things, who has always been honest, forthright and a defender of the Constitution….someone who has stood up for smaller, less intrusive government, sound currency and personal freedoms…….everyone goes wild … calling the man everything except…a viable candidate. Why is that?
    It is obvious to me ( as it should be to everyone else) that what we have been doing….ISN”T WORKING…..and maybe…just maybe, it’s time to take a new approach to the way this nation is beng run. Maybe, just maybe it’s time to stop electing “business as usual” “mainstream” candidates….who continue to run our nation into the ground while ignoring the will of the people. If we were to elect Dr. Ron Paul, could he really be any worse than what we’ve had over the last 40+ years (both sides)? If we were to elect him and he doesn’t make changes that positively affect our nation….can we not vote him out in another 4 years?
    Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over…and expecting to get a different result. Isn’t it time that we stopped the insanity?
    While I am not asking anyone to vote for any particular candidate, I will ask that you spend more time actually looking into all of the candidates’ backgrounds ( voting records, campaign finances…who they’ve made deals with etc.). learn everything you can about the candidates (not the MSM talking heads versions…do the research yourselves), so that on election day….you can make an informed decision about who you want to represent you in government….
    Remember, what they do is a direct reflection on us…..if they do foolish things….it makes us look like we elected foolish people….which means we look like fools for electing them.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I am tired of the insanity and will be casting my vote for Ron Paul. You can say that I am wasting my vote….well , I guess that’s OK….it is after all…MY….vote…… it doesn’t belong to any party or candidate….it belongs to me …to cast as my conscience
    dictates.
    I hope eveyone makes informed decisions concerning our future as a
    nation.

    The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived
    and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.

      Average Joe,
      Very well articulated and AMEN!! RON PAUL FOR PRES!!!!!!!

  • AJ

    Somebody should put a mussel on those lying lips. As the lips move the lies fall off in droves. I wouldn’t walk accross the hall to listen to his lying lips. Oh I mean George Sorros’s lying lips.

  • AJ

    Ya, Mr. & Mrs. or Ms. America how’s electing ‚Äúbusiness as usual‚ÄĚ ‚Äúmainstream‚ÄĚ candidates‚ĶDem and Repub.who continue to run our nation into the ground while ignoring the will of the people”, been working for ya? Are you going to continue on the road to insanity? Pull your brain out of the “Main Stream Media” washing machine and start thinking for a change. Make up your own mind.

  • Winnie

    Seems to me that the elected are elected by only a few Americans. The majority of the people are so disgusted by the idiots in Washington that they think that by not voting the problems will go away. HELLO!!!! Go out and vote. Only the people of the United States of America can change Washington by going out and voting; otherwise, shut your complaining.

  • Bob from SoCal

    Obama got one upped on his one upmanship. These politicians are playing games while the ship is sinking. Maybe they have a life boat that they are not telling us about.

    • Average Joe

      Of course they do, it called positions of power in the NWO….with no Constitution to restrain them from doing as they please to both America and the American people.

    • bob wire

      I suppose that you have heard people refer to a dollar bill as “skin”?

      Now where this is early “Trapper” talk or some jargon that came on of the Beatnik era, I really don’t know.

      “flip me some skin bro” Loan me some “skin”.

      But one think is fairly certain, not all but many politicians are “heeled up” with all the trapping of a “good life” and have a very “thick skin” that insulates them for the majority of Americans.

      They fail to act with the urgency these desperate times requires and why people seating in powerful position are sometimes dragged out of bed in the dark hours of early morning, shot, burned and buried before sunup.

      A most grizzly image to consider but history does repeat itself it just a matter of time as the “Entitled” feel that they have control and can run out the clock to their favor with this illusion of protection and self importance.

      I do believe that we are a long, long way for that point today, but be little mistake about it, this is where we are presently headed with their dysfunctional state of affairs our government officials seem to be mired in today.

      They have the benefit of status, the respect it offers and time but the clock is ticking.

    Who would be a good possibility for Ron Paul’s VP choice?

    This is how far ahead you need to be thinking.

    I’d like to see a race between “O” and RP for the first chair.

    I would be comfortable with these ballot options.

      To Bob Wire:
      I would say J.C. Watts. That team would be a jaggernaut. Thanks!!

    • Average Joe

      A couple of months ago, Ron Paul was asked about his choice as a running mate. His response was, “I really haven’t given it much thought yet, but I sure do like that Andrew Napolitano fellow”.
      Sounds like a pretty good choice to me.

      Ron Paul/Andrew Napolitano 2012!

    • Average Joe

      From lewrockwell.com:

      Andrew Napolitano. The Judge has a print and electronic record a mile long. And, he keeps hitting home runs; no Gary Johnson, he. Judge Napolitano is a charismatic, telegenic presence who is always willing to stand up to the Fox News neo-nuts clamor for war-mongering and Wall Street bailouts. With a Paul/Napolitano ticket, the Republicans would finally have a team that has read, understood, and would honor the original intent of the Constitution. This includes reducing the power of the imperial presidency, engaging in wars for only self-defense purposes, not imperialism, ensuring that Congress declares them, freeing up the economy and promoting personal liberty and responsibility. In any one-on-one debate, Napolitano would overwhelm Biden.

      HHHHHHhhhhhmmmmmmm! I think I’ve fallen into the Ron Paulista pit. :(

      • Average Joe

        Blueshoes,

        Well then, if you have…you should consider yourself lucky. If as I suspect, you were only being a troll…you have my sympathies. A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for liberty and freedom. A vote for anyone else is a vote for government corruption and tyranny…..the choice is yours to make. But, if you choose the latter, don’t whine or complain (ever)…because you’ve gotten the government you’ve asked for…nothing more….nothing less.

  • Chris

    Obama May talk as long as he wants when ever he wants,As long as theres more than one channel on my tv set,I frankly Don’t give a damn.

  • Emmy

    His “address to Congress” will be another speech citing the same old stuff we have heard many times already! He’s hoping to raise his poll numbers. But Americans want Results not Excuses or more Blame Games. He is standing in the way of the economy taking off, like it could do. Action not words create results.
