Obama: US must reclaim values of fairness for all

January 24, 2012


— President Barack Obama says America is at a defining moment — deciding whether it will settle for being a nation where many people barely get by or one where everybody gets a fair shot at success.

In excerpts of his State of the Union address, Obama says the country must reclaim its place as a land of opportunities for people who do their fair share and follow the same rules.

He says those "are not Democratic values or Republican values but American values."

The White House released excerpts ahead of Obama's speech at 8 p.m. CST. His address will center on his ideas for a sound economic recovery.

Obama will pledge to work with Republican lawmakers, but he will also warn he intends to "fight obstruction with action."

the bigest job obama had was as a community organizer except for govt work, the guy never had a job, or paid taxes if you have only lived off the rest of us you to would think that is a way of life just another welfare rat , but now you elected him president

Dont know who caused most of the defisit and dont care. What I am wondering is, if the Republicans gain the Presidencie and bring in their tax plan , is it going to be like the proposals here in Kansas, get rid of all tax deductions, lower the tax rate, but everybody except for the 1% will pay higher taxes.

Obama is clueless. He milks the system he has no clue how to build and wonders why the country goes broke.

With his logic, everyone gambling in Vegas should win the same amount of money. That sounds fair.

Did the Mope apologize for whizzing away billions of tax dollars on failing companies owned by big donors to his campaign?

"Obama: US must reclaim values of fairness for all"

"Kansas Republicans critical of Obama’s address"

The two headlines say it all.

US must reclaim values of fairness for all. And dummkopf defines fairness how? And he proposes to achieve this how, by raising taxes on a select few?

Dummkopf does not have a clue. America has & remains the land of dreams. Dummkopf has turned America into the land of food stamps, not the land of paychecks.

How can someone like dummkopf know how to create an economy generating paychecks when dummkopf never earned a paycheck?

I will say this: man, can that man deliver some oratory!

I liked a lot of what the President had to say. More than that, his appeal to work together had me screaming "Yesssssss!" As usual, disappointed in the "opposition" deciding to sit on their hands most of the time. Always makes me wonder how many actually like what the Prez has said but can't stand or applaud 'cuz The Damn Rascals will make him pay for his disloyalty.

On the other hand, I found it cheap the administration decided to use the SOU as the initial salvo in a re-election campaign. And the choreography with the camera shots was as well timed as a music video, which seemed fairly cheesy as well.

The Anointed One's message intended for have-nots:

Obama: US must reclaim values of fairness for all

The Anointed One's mesage taken quite literally by haves:

Obama: US must redistribute wealth

Look, friends, fellow posters and all others, Obama is a Socialist. This is not intended to be factual, but my humble opinion.

(No source)

Talk about demagoguery? Obama can not be matched....he is THE best at it. Don't you Obama worshipers agree? Don't you feel good right about now about The Anointed One?

Eager and ready to cast that second vote for the worst economic malaise we've since in decades? Just 'cause he's black? Just 'cause he's a Democrat? Whatever reason?

So Johnny who sits on his couch all day collecting government checks and food stamps which is paid for by John Q. Taxpayer is fair to who?? Food stamps under Obama are up 45% and he has spent more money in 3 years then all past presidents combined. With those facts stated how on earth can you justify voting for this man.

Please spare me the "fairness" bologne, you either go out and cut it on your own or you don't. Obviously, not counting anyone incapable of supporting themselves.

"...fairness for all..." Except when the Department of (no)Justice turns a blind eye to crimes.
