    1 speech compared to 41/2 years of less people working, hours being cut and 45 Million forced to survive on food stamps. Hmm.

    ^ReFlex-76, Lisa and ConserveGov only wait for Rush to tell them what Obama said, well, Rush’s interpretation of it anyway.

    Americans are certainly being squeezed by gov’t, and both parties and all branches of gov’t are to blame.

    That was a 20% cut for a 22 week period, not 20% per year. It’s a little deceptive not to specify the time period.

    Obama is starting to Sweat about his legacy. So now he will pay attention to the middle class.

    All along he has shown himself to be a friend of Democrat strongholds: The poor, the needy, the incapable.

    Now, suddenly, he cares about the average middle class worker who is employed and struggling because the taxes to support Obamas supporters are so burdensome that he can’t carry them any more.

    If Obama really cared about the middle class he would propose another round or 2 of sequesters and shed some layers of government. Maybe even look to the states to make decisions for themselves.

    But he and his cronies are so Bent on controlling everyone else’s lives that I wouldn’t advise holding your breath.

    He looks at 1200 days as a very short time to do something good. I look at it as a very long time until we are free of his idiocy.

    Good Cartoon Lisa!!!

    I want a president that will help middle class get to be upper class rather than moving them to poverty. (O MITT, where are you when we need you?)

    He hasn’t done anything for the poor, the needy, or the incapable except make more of them.

    You obviously don’t listen to Obama’s speeches — he has ideas that were proven to work by presidents of both parties over the past century. But the GOP has let it be known that ANYTHING that might help the country is dead on arrival. There is simply no room there to govern.

    That is 45 (?) million forced to use food stamps due to low wages while the executives feast on excessive profits.

    Interesting that Faux News decided it wasn’t important to air the President’s speech – while criticizing it.

    I see she forgot energy companies, banks, wall street, and the other fat cats sucking at the tit of the government.

    hink, that 20% cut (for some) came about because the Conservatives refused to help create a budget, mainly by increasing income while the Liberals did agree to some budget cuts.

    That 20% cut originated with the White House staff, Obama said OK and it was given to Harry Reid. Harry got it through the Senate and then the House voted “yea”. The White House, Senate, and House were all to lazy to sit down and do a real budget. Too busy politicking instead of doing the people’s business.
