    Yea. Unless he promises to cut military spending at least 50%, create a wpa type jobs program to repair and build put solar panels on all sunny govt buildings to reduce tax payer energy bills and reduce pollution, and lay rail and build a national high speed rail network.. Unless he lays out a plan
    like that, i will be disappointed, but i've grown used to it ober the years....

    @PoliticalSpice I wouldn't go as far as cutting military spending that much. Cutting the military should come after looking at other programs on the priority scale. Many folks knock solar power...I don't. But, I believe the private sector should be doing the funding for solar energy. They also should be the ones to reap the rewards for solar's success. It's obvious that gov't grants for solar are failing.

    I guess the Electoral College vote, the popular vote and current approval polls are all wrong. Is the desert air of Arizona that as you living in an alternate universe from the rest of "we the people."

    @Medicinebow Well we disagree. But I will give you my take on both so you can st least inderstand my reasoning. First, I do not believe the govt should be putting money into research or building solar plants. That is not what I support. I support jobs in sunny areas where the govt trains and employs people to install solar on govt buildings, federal buildings, hospitals, schools, etc. to reduce engergy cost and pollution. Imn talking mostly about a jobs program to install priloven technolgy not improve on it. In return for buying the panels the govt should also insist on long service warranties as part of the program.

    As to the military here is my take. There is a lot of waste in military budget. Projects that cost hundreds of millions like the F-35 which do not even perform as pronised that we continue to build. The problem with cutting military spending is the comlanies doing this work hire subcontractors all over the country. Even a bad project is impossible to kill because so many congressional districts employ people for each project. A project offering a thousand jobs may employ subcontractors or buy equipment from as companies in fifty to a hundred congressional districts, each of which has a repressentitive who will hear we are laying off hundred or so people in your community if you kill this. That makes getting rid of bad projects impossible. But for a congress person to blame the sequester or obama is much easier then telling a town meeting of hundreds of employees and family and friends they dupported cutting a project cause it was necessary. So the sequrster makes it possible to wipe out a slew of bad programs. Re-negotiate contracts on better terms for those congress devides to reinstate, etc. i see no way to get signifigant military cuts without a drastic measure like thr sequester. It upsets me the sequester is unlikely to take place. Military pork never decreases, it only grows...

    @PoliticalSpice On a jobs program we can agree. I'd respond longer but i'm hitting the sack. Have a nice night. It's refreshing to have a discussion with a person having differing views and have it in an adult manner.

    What he says will be lip service, nothing more. If he had his way he would skip the whole thing and continue down his progressive liberal path like a bull in a china closet.

    So he's going to avoid mentioning all the gun control laws he's trying to force through congress with Bloomberg's financial help because he is finally realizing that being open and honest about his intentions of total semi-auto gun bans is backfiring?

    I can't believe PolitixMary bowed to a commenter and removed "jeer and scoff" because that's exactly what the right wing will do. It's an accurate option in any poll concerning Obama. It's all the far right lunatic fringe does. Jeer and Scoff. They would support A right winger nuking California but refuse to give Obama credit for giving the OK to kill Bin Laden. While calling him a Muslim. Come on Mary. Stop bowing to bullies.

    Hey JesseJaymes! Thanks for further input on the poll :) I changed it because it seemed that some people who wanted to vote weren't able to, because of the way that option was worded.

    @texas_cutie75 There is a difference between a conservative and a right winger. I am called a right winger all the time by the far left loons. But I'm not. I'm a conservative leaning moderate. And that is light years away from the far right rabid. It's not a simple as the extremists of both left and right think it is. Most of America goes back and forth issue by issue.

    For the sensible person, it will not matter if he advocates more Liberalism. As long as the "Liberalism" being advocated is within the confines of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. True Liberalism is being PRO BILL OF RIGHTS to the best advantage of The American People, INCLUDING the much-maligned SECOND AMENDMENT, and NOT interpreting the Bill of Rights to DENY OR ABROGATE freedoms to The American People while enlarging those of the Federal Government. I like to think I'm a TRUE LIBERAL: Pro women's right to choose; pro gay American's equal rights; pro progressive social agenda; PRO 2nd Amendment. The Bill of Rights isn't a pick and choose proposition. The whole thing comes as a package.

    I will watch, and though I voted to enjoy, it was because the other choices didn't fit either. I hope it is more focused on the economy because that should be proper focus of all our elected officials. Not that this country doesn't have social problems that need to be addressed but they waste money & time we don't have while the country suffers financially.

    He can't be less Liberal. It is his entire makeup. So...instead of talking about Liberal social issues he is going to talk about Liberal spend, spend spend...another far left liberal loon position. He is determined to spend our country into the ground. Son of Stimulus proposal on the way. Let's see the Democrats push for another $800B or so in spending. I want to get all the Liberals on record as voting for that ahead of the 2014 elections.

    Obama makes even Liberals look conservative. He is the only senator who voted to kill the Baby if it survives the Abortion attempt. Is there anything more Liberal or horrendous?

    4 yrs of hell has begun.........the first 4 weren't enough for you blind followers I guess. If a brother can't get the job done in 4 years, give em 4 more? I so much wish that the Milwaukee County Sherrif would have run for president . At least he was a realistic & intelligent black man w ho could have had something to offer. Nobama is a disgrace.
