Totally agree, the best part of this speech was when the republican called him a lyer! It was the only truth that was heard in the entire hour!

how could you possibly be reassured by a promise that 500 billion will be saved thru discovering fraud and waste? isn't this a government-run program that has been wasteful and fraudulent? isn't medicare supposed to go broke in 15 years? you can't get blood from a rock.

Yes he DID apologize as he should have. I don't like what Obama is doing to our country at all but acting that way when the president (no matter who he is) is addressing the congress is just about the worst display of ignorance I've seen during any of the speeches I have ever seen! Either clap or not, stand or not, hold up your ideas for medical reform or not, but you don't heckle the president. As an American there should be some level of respect for the office. You don't have to agree with him but you damn sure shouldn't act like a teenager when you are a congressman sitting there being addressed by the president. Shameful!!!!

So it's O.K for the President to take shots at republicans during his speech but if they say anything they are acting childish? Mentioning death panels was directed to Sarah Palin and he also made statements directed to oposition basically blaming republicans for the hold-up on this bill, which is a lie, democrats have also been holding it up. I agree all should show some dignity but one party should not be silent while the other does what it wants.

Libs with selective memories. Oh, the humanity!

JOHN ROBERTS (CBS White House correspondent): At a couple points in this address, it looked more like the British Parliament than the United States Congress. I've never heard the minority party shout at the president during the State of the Union address.[CBS, post-speech coverage, 2/2/05]

Maybe the funniest part was Obama claiming he "saved" the economy!

Over 3 million jobs lost in 8 short months? "Saved"?

This appears to be Obama's new rhetorical tact. Obviously he has failed miserably with the stimulus.

Obama promised unemployment would not go over 8.0% if his Stimulus was passed. Now its 9.7% and rising.

Since he failed in his presidency so far, Obama is trying to take credit for the TARP plan of October!

He and his DNC talking points keep claiming he saved an economy on the brink, etc. They refer to what happened in Sept.-Oct. when Lehman failed.

Love it or hate it, the very expensive TARP plan was passed BEFORE THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. It was TARP that backstopped the banks. Democrats like Warren Buffet say it was TARP that took the economy back freom the brink.

Obama can't even take credit, as it were, for the bailouts of GM & Chrysler which started in December under Bush.

The economy clearly had troughed out before Obama took office. It has done little since, but Obama is going to claim credit for what his nemesis Bush did in 2008!

Obama did not save an economy from the brink. In fact, Obama's anti-small business policies are making this a "U" shaped recovery instead of the typical "V" recovery after a recession.

Obama, I will "Call you out" on your lies and distortions!

Conservatives- you better watch out. You see how virtually every socialist here and in the press calls ANY opposition to any Obama policy is "racism"?

Think your taxes are too high? "racism"

You don't like Obama filling his administration with proven tax cheaters? "racism"

Don't want to be in a government health plan? "racism"

Don't like the government running GM? "racism"

Don't think Iran should get nukes as Obama sits idly by? "racism"

I think they have a plan: paint any criticism of Obama as "racism" and therefore "hate speech". Then they will try to ban all "hate speech". If Obama is the socialist we think he is, then he will eventually eliminate any freedom of speech just like socialist/communist dictators do.
