Check Out These Reactions To The 2014 SOTU

(Two posts today. Please scroll down)

This morning, a client told me about this video, and I stumbled upon it during blog rounds just now (hat tip to Capitalist Preservation):


  1. That was a SOTU? I thought he was making up with his wife, there was so much BS, you couldn't tell the difference.

  2. Why is it that a few get it, while so many don't? . I wonder if this group sees Detroit as a harbinger? I just shared this with many.

  3. Good point: minimum wage increase doesn't matter if you don't have a job. Well, but sadly, these people are about 5 years too late.

    1. Sam,
      I'd be interested if those interviewed on the video voted twice for Obama.

  4. They are all right on target, but the bald man wearing gray and black with a diamond pattern down the front and traces of green and orange is extremely intelligent and articulate. The Republicans would do well to take him aside, and arrange for him to run for congress.

  5. I agree with Mr FreeThinke, and he does belong in the Repub party.

    If he tried to run as a democrat, he would be subjected to Joe Biden 'clean and articulate' tests and Harry Reid would have to declare him free of any 'negro dialect'

    1. U.R. Nutz says

      you want some lowlife scum talking jive the oval office? you gotta be kidding, right?

  6. Buyers' remorse:

    As more bad poll numbers continue to pour in for President Barack Obama, a new survey finds that if the 2012 election matchup were held this month, Mitt Romney would hold the edge with the voters.

    Romney topped Obama 49 percent to 45 percent among registered voters in the Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday. Among all Americans, the 2012 rivals would be tied, at 47 percent....

  7. More buyers' remorse:

    Labor union officials say Obama betrayed them in health-care rollout

    Labor leaders who have spent months lobbying unsuccessfully for special protections under the Affordable Care Act warned this week that the White House’s continued refusal to help is dampening union support for Democratic candidates in this year’s midterm elections.

    Leaders of two major unions, including the first to endorse Obama in 2008, said they have been betrayed by an administration that wooed their support for the 2009 legislation with promises to later address the peculiar needs of union-negotiated insurance plans that cover millions of workers.

    Their complaints reflect a broad sense of disappointment among many labor leaders, who say the Affordable Care Act has subjected union health plans to new taxes and mandates while not allowing them to share in the subsidies that have gone to private insurance companies competing on the newly created exchanges.

    After dozens of frustrating meetings with White House officials over the past year, including one with Obama, a number of angry labor officials say their members are far less likely to campaign and turn out for Democratic candidates in the midterm elections....
