Obama to refocus on economy
in State of the Union

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2013 10:38:19 AM

President Barack Obama will focus his State of the Union address on boosting job creation and economic growth at a time of high unemployment, underscoring the degree to which the economy could threaten his ability to pursue second-term priorities such as gun control, immigration policy and climate change. Obama also may use Tuesday´s prime-time address before a joint session of Congress to announce the next steps for concluding the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan by the end of 2014. Obama´s State of the Union marks his second high-profile speech to the nation in about three weeks, after his

Comments:
Of course he will. s/o You mean he´s going to tell us how he plans on further destroying it? He´s been saying the same pathetic lies over and over and over again. It´s beyond tedious.

Last time, he scolded the SC justices for a vote that he didn´t like. Wonder if this time he will thank John Roberts for his perfidious vote on Obamacare?

I saw Ken Langone on a business show recently. He is one of the founders of Home Depot.

Langone said that Home Depot was as the right time, not possible to start that company now. He explained that provisions in Sarbanes Oxley prohibit the type of stock incentive used to get the company started. Company currently has 331,000 employees.

Any politician who is not willing to review bad legislation (like SarBox, obamacare or FinReg) is bald face lying when they say they are focusing on jobs. And I mean you obama.

Re: Tony Fratto, who worked in the White House during President George W. Bush´s second term, said....
"We´re not in a position where Obama can blame anybody else for the economy now," Fratto said, "Now it´s his eccomy."

Fratto treats Obama as normal. Obama is a narcisst who lacks the personal responsibility trait. He can never accept blame or admit fault. Obama will once again note the mess he inherited and how it takes 4 to 5 terms in office to recover from the things Booosh, and now the GOP, have done. "Therefore, I will issue an executive order suspending the 22nd Amendment as well as the 1st and 2nd Amendments since they were written by old white men who owned slaves."

What does the AP mean by refocus. When did this admin ever focus on the economy other than to implement rules and regulations to destroy it ?

Of course he´ll say that, again.

He´ll say whatever he needs to say to keep fooling enough of the people all the time.

1% growth? Are you kidding me?

Our trade deficit is shrinking because we are pumping more of our own oil not because the economy is improving.
We are even selling some overseas.

Why aren´t we taking advantage of the $20/barrel cost-savings and ensuring we all have cheap gasoline?

Democrats don´t want cheap gasoline.

The so called -0.1% ´growth´ reported last quarter is worse than reported. If anyone noticed they used an inflation number of 0.6% to calculate that number. If you use even the ´cooked´ 2% inflation then the real number is -1.5%.

This speech will be designed to seem "reasonable" to fool as many low information voters as possible, because by now, most people recognize that it is not what Obama says, but that it is what he actually does that is important, and those two factors are usually as different as apples and oranges.

BO could state in his State of the Union address that he has no intention of going after Muslims in the Benghazi executions, will cut all defense by 75%, increase federal government wages and salaries by 75%, free all Gitmo prisoners and give them automatic US citizenship, confiscate all property and assets of anyone makeing over $1,000,000, criminalize all private and parochial schools, allow cities to impose Sharia law, and overturn the 2nd Amendment and he would not only receive a 45 minute standing ovation, his popularity vote would rise 85%, and he would win another peace prize.

Does anyone with an IQ higher than their shoe size believe a word stuttered out of his mouth?

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
