Barack Obama, our next President

You're as ignorant about the Constitution as you are with most other things.

----------

Preamble to the Constitution of the United States

""We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,[note 1] promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

----------

To further enlighten nitwits like you, here's what the Preamble is for:

"The Preamble to the United States Constitution is a brief introductory statement of the Constitution's fundamental purposes and guiding principles. It states in general terms, and courts have referred to it as reliable evidence of, the Founding Fathers' intentions regarding the Constitution's meaning and what they hoped the Constitution would achieve.""

----------

Meanwhile, you stupidly overlook the fact that the Constitution DOES NOT allow a standing Army, Coast Guard, Air Force.

See Section 8 of the US Constitution, Mr. Expert!!

""To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;""

----------

So the Army is unConstitutional, as you clearly see. Armies can only be raised for a period of 2 years.

And the militia is there to supress insurrections and repel invasions.

Kind of ruins your childish reading of the 2nd Amendment, doesn't it??

People like you are extremely ignorant, but roll out the Constitution as if you've actuallly read it.

You haven't, and I just proved it!!

Next problem for a dropout like you is that you can't comprenend the meaning of the Constitution.

Too dull for a campaign speech, too partisan for patriotic fanfare, it fell somewhere in between and landed with a thud. His supporters, of course, will have loved it. But few will remember it.

It had its moments. Obama's refrain on the victims of gun violence was powerful and inspiring.

"I know this is not the first time this country has debated how to reduce gun violence," he said, referring to the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook. "But this time is different."

Then, imploring Congress to at least put proposals on gun control to the vote, he began an incantation that began with the parents of Hadiya Pendleton, the teenager killed less than a mile form his Chicago home.

"Hadiya's parents, Nate and Cleo along with more than two dozen Americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. They deserve a vote. Gabby Giffords deserves a vote. The families of Newtown deserve a vote. The families of Aurora deserve a vote. The families of Oak Creek, and Tucson, and Blacksburg, and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence – they deserve a simple vote."

His voice rising with the name of each tragedy, this was as audacious an appeal to tackle what was once a taboo in American politics as you're likely to see. When he shone the spotlight on Desiline Victor, the 102-year-old woman from Miami who waited hours to vote in November, he also brought a sense of purpose both to the room and the event.

Unfortunately, he saved these most rousing moments until the end. And it was there, just as he was to finish, that we learned that the speech we had been listening to was supposed to have had a unifying theme: active and engaged citizenship.

IMO every new law proposed should be attached to the repeal of an existing law.
Don't know why they bother regulating your business, because everybody knows that used car dealers are lying, thieving bastards who cannot be trusted for anything.

This type of risky surgery should never be performed by a hack in a clinic instead of in a hospital.

Futhermore, if the pregnancy presented no risk to the mother, but the surgery had obvious risks, then the "doctor" should be charged with manslaughter.

Some think the LAPD wanted to halt any investigation into racism in the department, hence needed to destroy the evidence.

The LAPD Chief is a career hack who is knee-deep in all the department's ills. Same with Mayor Tony Villa.

Blah blah f*cking blah.

I know this is impossible for you right whiners to understand, handing out tax cuts add to the debt because they reduce revenues.

To avoid that, tax cuts need to be FUNDED.

And really, if you think there is a difference between getting a discount or instant rebate, you are a few bricks short of a load.

I am not a big government guy. There are some things best solved by government.

No need for a trial. No presumption of innocence??

You'd have fit into Hitler's Germany quite well. They didn't believe in trials either.

Yeah, newbie Puerto Rican Florida state senator Darren Soto thinks it a good idea to do away with daylight savings time in Florida to maximize the use of the sun for important sht like golfing, fishing, going to theme parks etc.

Fine by me but it's been introduced before in this state and others to no avail__so why bother eh?

Soto, a (D) is a pretty smart guy__this is probably him sticking his toe in the water to get started off as a legislator. There have been dumber first attempts at getting noticed eh?

It was far better than Rmoney's speech!!

Oh wait, Rmoney lost and didn't get to make a SOTU speech!!

You sound like the sore loser you are!!

But seeing as how you asked;

""Polls show rave reviews for SOTU""

""Americans responded with overwhelming positivity to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, two polls conducted after the Tuesday night speech found.

In a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll of 475 adults who watched the speech, 52 percent of respondents said they had a very positive reaction to Obama’s message. An additional 32 percent said their reactions were somewhat positive. Just 15 percent responded negatively to the speech.""

Thanks for asking, ye of the reddish neck!!
