His inexperience with foreign policy and global economics has been this nation's bane for the past 4 years. We, as a nation, have brought ourselves through this much of a recession in spite of his administration, not because of it. The political superstructure in DC (and in many states) should wake up to the ever-growing dissent among the constituents and the real possibility of a forced (most likely by economic or legal action) governmental reform.

We are finally moving past the disaster created by the failed credo of "trickle down", the Bush tax cuts for the very rich, and the two wars foisted on us based on bald faced lies.

Central PA will bear a special burden that is likely to far outlast Barack Hussein Obama. Remember Dick Cheney, he whose friends/family became so obscenely rich from the aforementioned wars based on lies. He whose "secret" energy meetings favored certain special energy industry interests allowing them to prepare sophisticated campaigns that rolled over the people here before they ever knew what hit them. In the aftermath of their desecration we are likely to have no water fit to drink. This seems of little import to the smug cretins who find it convenient to blame everything on Obama.

President Obama now has four more years to work us out this mess as a country. Lets hope with our incredibly weak representation in Congress he has time to help us when the "shale gas" pyramid

Gee....who would HAVE expected "conservatives'" opinions to be in-conflict with the opinions of librarians; i.e. LITERATE-people?

How fortunate, for you.

You COULD have been in-attendance of a room-FULL of "conservatives", that The President had totally-"EVISCERATED", regarding his handling of the economy.

Who GUESSED we wouldn't have gotten the same warnings (THIS time), that The Heritage Foundation offered (in 1996), before BILL CLINTON had proceeded with HIS 2nd term clean-up??!!!

"His inexperience with foreign policy"; it's not inexperience, it's intelligence. He is not a knee-jerk reaction type of guy like W was. When something happens in the world, he wants all the information/intelligence that can be gathered before makinig a judgement call. Wars and bad policy drove this country into the Great Recession. Just think of those Trillions of dollars that could have been invested domestically.

I loved the speech but I said to my wife, if the libertarians/republicans are watching, they are squirming. We the people after all is a collectivist ideology.

Right, Jeff33 - because the recession didn't start until W was out of office. What a stupid thing to say...

I love it! I am no Obama fan, i would like to see someone stand up more to big industry, but he is doing well considering what he has to work with. It is so incredibly clear that he is advancing almost every aspect of this country from foreign respect to the economy here at home. And boy does that annoy the conservatives. Just accept it folks, he is doing well by our country and no amount of fantastic lies and ridiculous half truths can change it.

No*****"America depends on a rising middle class" we are the only ones paying for the too lazy to work drones that voted him back in office. What a sad time for this country...we are headed to a third world status with this idiot at the helm and I can't believe how many people actually voted for him and bought into this speech. I am appauled at the part of his speech about gays...why should we be promoting that, it is SICK! He will work hard this next 4 years to do nothing more than give the have nots more and make the working class work more for less, just so another black can be voted into the white house. Truly a terrible time in America!

The problems facing this nation are not from any one administration or party, they stem from a political structure that is too dependent on special interest money to secure their public-financed positions and retirements! With our government's system of checks and balances, no single administration can create or wipe clean the amount of mistakes that have befallen our economy, our international reputation and our social self-esteem. Our political structure, in general, has lost the fact that they are public servants, not that we are their servants.

Wow, a whole dozen sheeple watched on the big screen. How the heck did he get elected? You can't believe a word he says. Have you been to the grocery store lately? When he came into office in 2008 a gallon of milk was a little over $2.00 now it's almost $5.00. What about coffee, butter, etc. It's nuts. Now, you liberals out there explain to me how that will "build up the middle class"

bubbles - You can blame the ethanol people on that. Corn is being diverted to making ethanol. So farmers are growing more of it but it isn't going towards food. Since more corn is being grown, less of other stuff is being grown like wheat. Simple supply and demand. Since there is less wheat, alfalfa, etc, they become more in demand and price goes up for bread and milk and butter too because the stuff the cows eat is now more expensive. You should call Rep. Marino and our Senators.

Coffee on the other hand is beyond our control since the U.S. doesn't grow it.
