    This is a *must see* ! Excellent! Thanks for posting, Tammy.

    But what’s up with Biden’s facial expressions? Gas? Trying to pass a kidney stone?
    Realized he should’ve had a V-8?

    Urkel’s idea of full employment is a government check in every mailbox.

    You mean to tell me it was all a LIE!

    But WOW, the Cato Institute dissected him with the precision of a skilled surgeon. That’s something you won’t see in the MSM. Thanks, Tammy!

    Maynard: LOL!

    I have one more question: What’s up with the DB’s obsession with dimes? Is he Dimish? or a Dimist? or a Dimophobe?

    Or, maybe he just has “dimebags” on his mind…

    One of the things I hate about Obama is he’ll just say anything, truth be damned, that makes him look reasonable, caring and wise. Even in a very important address to the nation like this SOTU speech. And he does it so smoothly and it sounds so superficially reasonable as it flies by — he is one of the best smooth-talking con artists I’ve ever seen (to our country’s detriment!). And I fear the majority of his infatuated low-information rubes out there listening are nodding in approval at this most righteous and caring president THEY’VE ever seen *swoon*. Gag.

    The man is dangerous because it’s easy for him to pull the wool over the eyes of the country’s increasingly gullible populace, while his methods and motives are not in America’s best interest…to put it mildly.

    Relative to the DB, but not SOTU: In a remote part of Alaska, people with significant health issues had died because of weather preventing plane flights to access medical care. A road was needed to get to a bigger airport that could evacuate person during severe weather. Congress worked (actually worked!!!) to pass a bill to get a road constructed while protecting the environment. This included a land swap with a wildlife refuge. Congress passed the law and Obama signed it. But here’s the catch, because a wildlife refuge land swap was involved, the Dept. of Interior needed to approve land swap. And guess what, outgoing DoI Secretary Salazar nixed the land swap, killing the road. What a kneeslapper, Obama signs law authorizing to mollify Congress and then has Cabinet Secy kill it to mollify ‘environmentalists’. No wonder the autopen is good enough, his signature isn’t worth anything.
