To think of the destruction Obama was handed from the Worst President In US History George W. Bush and then having to face the Second Civil War as the Republicons in Congress made their Only Stated Policy Goal of 'making him a One-Term President'
But, even facing the daily lies from Faux News, the destructive anti-American policies of the Punk-Ass GOP, the smears from Right-Wing funded think tanks and the blubbering of ponderous Toxic Right Wing Radio Commentators declaring "I Want Him to Fail." President Obama arrested the collapse of the Nation and set us upon the Path towards a more perfect, equitable Union.
It won't be easy to create a Better America. The Republicon Congress has no intention of helping America. For 3 years the Right-Wing has been harming America and hurting Americans in an Campaign to Blame Barack for their torching of the Country. The Evil Stain on the Nation, that Party of Bigots and Thieves, the GOP will stop at nothing to beat down the People and serve their Plutocratic Masters.
Additionally, the Alternate Reality sewn in the minds of the duped and ignorant rubes who vote for Republicons is working. Self conditioning Right-wing bloggers, who've absorbed so much propaganda, continue to furiously try to downplay the Massive Achievements of Barack Obama the Great.
The State of the Union Address was Epic. Obama covered many of the things, but not all, we Liberals wanted to hear. It's a repudiation of Conservative Piss Down Your Back and Tell You It's Raining Prosperity Reaganomics. Obama's call for the Government to step up and reign in the murderous Oil Companies, the greedy and viscous Hedge Fund Vultures, to create a sensible economic policy, a return to investing in American jobs, and an end to the Era of the Greedy 1% served notice.
More needs to be done after Obama's Victory in 2012. An End to the Phony War on Terror, especially in Afghanistan but also the drone attacks in and around HOA, a solution to Gitmo, higher taxes on Thieving Disaster Capitalists, a transaction tax on Wall Street, a Single-Payer Medicare Option for All and more. But once we Liberals Stand Behind Our President and get him re-elected the Sun will again Shine on America the Beautiful.
The fantastic David Corn over at Mother Jones writes Obama's SOTU,
With this speech, Obama forcefully presented a view of the nation and the tasks at hand that positioned him as a can-do, patriotic, forward-looking optimist against obstructionist Republicans with a dark take on the nation's prospects. He pitched government policies that would bolster middle-class security: job-training programs, tax credits for college tuition and repatriating jobs to the United States, mortgage refinancing, research-and-development spending, and measures to boost domestic manufacturing. "Take the money we're no longer spending at war," he declared, "use half of it to pay down our debt, and use the rest to do some nation-building right here at home."Damn Clear contrast David and a damn clear choice, Barack Obama the Great or a Republicon slug.
Due to this shift, the 2012 race is shaping up as a titanic face-off between a president who advocates using government to bolster the economy and address inequities and Republicans who have one answer to everything: Smother government and let the markets run free. In his speech, Obama called for "great projects." Republicans call for no projects—that is, nothing outside the private sector. This is a damn clear contrast.
