I can say though that I'm disappointed about the poor work done on our foreign trade policy, Obama made some promises and our foreign trade is still a joke. We tax and penalize more here at home then we do with overseas trade.

Sorry Pavel, great point but a little correction needed. Congress actually doesn't work hard. Working hard takes more than hours of golf, time in the tanning bed, and 20 vacations a year (ahem John Boehner) but I am glad that we're paying them so much to vacation so often, good to know these "servants" and this process works out so well for us

thats because american is quite polarized...
by Pavel1/29/2014 5:18:58 AM
Rich Smith, you are a typical aggressive liberal fascist if instead of responding on the merits of your opponents' comments you call them names. From what I see in modern day America, usually one who call others racists are racist. And coward. And potential looter, a great Bolschevik material.

the cnn poll results showed INDEPENDENTS the least responsive to the presidents' address- even lower than republicans He def has lost the middle.
by cons1/29/2014 5:17:44 AM
that point when you think you should join politics because you want to do something good for the country..because clearly our president and congress are not functioning properly...... .a dream one day
by Rick Smith1/29/2014 5:17:36 AM
If I remember right WE the PEOPLE voted in Obama twice!
by Pavel1/29/2014 5:16:15 AM
Rich Smith, no offense, but you need to learn about what democratic process means. Congress is elected by We the People and represents We the People. If Obama and Dems expect that the reps of the People will suddenly betray their voters and their own principles to side with Obama's worldview - they are delusional. Congress is working, and working hard in not allowing Obama to push his agenda throw. Again, Congress represents the People. The problem is not in Congress. The problem is in Obama unwilling to compromise, and in liberals largely see the People as some form of uneducated masses which need to be enlightened, forcefully, if necessary, such as through executive orders on issues that actually require a national referendum so important they are.
by Samson1/29/2014 5:15:46 AM
yeah Rick Smith gets weird sometimes but u gto luv em, where's Ron Paul I'm missin that guy right about now
by cons1/29/2014 5:15:16 AM
i see we have some negative nancy
by Rick Smith1/29/2014 5:14:14 AM
Pavel you should be ashamed of yourself, but I know you're not, it's hard for you to overcome years of being a racist, I feel for you, and hope you get help, never know who your grandkids might bring home for dinner.
by cons1/29/2014 5:13:59 AM
in my opinion, obama focused more on social issues in a suffering economy than jobs issues, which are much more important.
by cons1/29/2014 5:12:46 AM
you cant generalize* and say all business owners are repubs
by cons1/29/2014 5:12:22 AM
of course...you can
by Samson1/29/2014 5:12:15 AM
i'm not sure i can compare obama to marx...marx was more successful, lol
by Samson1/29/2014 5:11:53 AM
okay thanks for the clarity, but take a look there's a large amount of entrepreneurs are are in fact dems/obama followers
by Pavel1/29/2014 5:11:06 AM
Samson, I said specifically that this is my personal observation. Experience of others may be different.
by Pavel1/29/2014 5:10:13 AM
Greg, I disagree. I do not think that Obama lies. He wants the best for the country, the way liberals understand the best - larger government, a nanny state, and more regulations to control everything. He does not believe in the self-balancing system of the market economy. He's not alone, many bright individuals from Karl Marx to Paul Krugman think that planned economy is the best option. Obama's problem is that he dreams the same dream Russian socialists had about 100 years ago. His view of America is based on what he has learned from the books of people who have never got anything good coming out of the implementation of their ideas. It's getting clear now that most Americans actually see that being a nice guy does not equal to being a decent president.
by Samson1/29/2014 5:10:10 AM
Pavel, you don't really believe what you said about Repubs vs. Dems = entrepreneurs/owners vs. salaried? come on, that is so far from true. do a little research, you might be surprised how many business owners are dems
by Samson1/29/2014 5:08:34 AM
Well, of course that's true Greg; but, I'm guessing there was more to it than that. Especially since the head of the KKK is the House of Reps...jus' say'n :)
by T.L.LOVE1/29/2014 5:08:21 AM
nobody has answers, the world has changed. technology has changed the workplace. companies know they don't need as many workers. the job market isn't in education or engineering, its in trades. what we need is a reinvestment in the infrastructure in America. the electric grid. the highway system. the bridges.. a cooperative effort between the states, the federal government and the industries across this nation must come together to build the future. be it the next generation of communication or electrical grid. it takes cooperation between industry, state and federal government. and this will put people back to work
by greg1/29/2014 5:07:06 AM
And of course there were those who voted for a skin color; just say'n. FACT
by Rick Smith1/29/2014 5:07:01 AM
Obama only needs a few level headed Congressman to push past this blockade of stagnation and get this country moving in the right distraction again.
by greg1/29/2014 5:04:05 AM
Stupid America fell for his lies, stupid America!

Obama - build a coal plant and I will bury you with regulations
by cons1/29/2014 5:04:02 AM
good night! =] Enjoyed talking/debating with everyone.
by Pavel1/29/2014 5:04:01 AM
Cons, the point of my comment was that Republicans I meet in my life are more practical and down-to-earth kind of people who understand what fiscal responsibility means and who know how to build and run their business. Democrats, to the contrary, are mostly salaried former college kids who can speak well but often do not know how to create anything that hires people and makes profit.

Peace out everyone and I wish you luck in all your journeys, sincerely an independent american who has big dreams.

Yes Pavel, it was a nice speech
by Warren Peterson1/29/2014 5:02:12 AM
A Canadian's view point is outta here. Have fun everyone! I wish you all the best!
by cons1/29/2014 5:02:05 AM
I agree...great motivational speech, but backed by nothing,and plenty of false statements
by Samson1/29/2014 5:02:05 AM
way to go Pavel!!! good point
by Pavel1/29/2014 5:01:16 AM
Johnno, just to add, for clarity: CNN says that they admit that ones who watched the speech are mostly Democrats. Also, having a positive reaction does not mean agree with what he preaches. I am an independent, social conservative, and I find his speech an excellent motivational speech. Does it mean I support his agenda? Nope. Not at all.
by red state1/29/2014 5:01:12 AM
The other two branch have decided to bypass the president with their pens..
by Samson1/29/2014 5:01:04 AM
Ah, you must have been involved with writing Mrs. Roger's little speech tonight...very cute
by cons1/29/2014 5:01:00 AM
Yep, nanomedicine may get there. It will take time, but many small bio-pharma companies have been on the market with nano-pharmaceutical therapies for some time now. Big pharma with their empty pipeline are just buying up these smaller start ups
by Rick Smith1/29/2014 5:00:46 AM
Every Vote counts, even in off years 2014 is just as important as 2016! no matter what side your voting for.

Obama's speech - a repeated recording from 2008
by Samson1/29/2014 4:59:37 AM
Greg, what's your point? He's a liar...so why'd America re-elect a liar?
by gloriaetfortuna1/29/2014 4:59:19 AM
Yes nano medicine still young and I hope to see it become the greatest medicinal revolution. hopefully in my lifetime
by cons1/29/2014 4:59:10 AM
Pavel, degree or not does not necessarily mean smarts or success. my grandfather never had the opportunity to go to college during his time, yet he worked hard and became successful. He was smart too and would often give advice to others as well...I know it's anecdotal, but correlation does not imply causation
by Pavel1/29/2014 4:58:52 AM
Rich Smith, you are confused. They are all high in liberal Colorado.
by Johnno 541/29/2014 4:58:51 AM
CNN Poll, 76% positive reaction to the speech. Bwhahaha CNN viewers are on...
by greg1/29/2014 4:58:41 AM
Yes he spoke on all those things 5 years ago Samsonit; most of it was lies just to get elected again! FACT
