I voted for him. One of the few that admit it. Kick my self every time I look in the mirror. He has lied to us so much in past. Personaly do not believe any thing he says so will not even listen to his B. S. any more. His vetoing thus killing the pipe line and anti fragging stance. Leaves me amazed. I have fought socialism all my life. YEP VEIT VET. Never but Never thought we would allow a socialist president, ( SOCILIST, COMMINUEST, NAZI, MOA'S, SAME THING DIFFERENT NAME. ] Never but Never would have though I would be ashamed that I voted or of the American People. But all of us who voted for him. I am deeply. included my self. The teachers union, AFL-CIO, [whom I was a member of at one time] Democratic party, and the Jimmy Jr Hoffa. Shame on us all.

I care about the debt. He and the Democratic Party have completely abrogated sanity on this issue.

I guess it's par for the course; Myron H, Bill Maher and I were, apparently, the only three people who actually watched the SOTU speech. None of us got what we wanted.
