1. MAKEUP!
Where are the makeup people? He looks so tired. He looks so shiny. They can do miracles, and I hope he gets somebody.

2. He Looks Great Just The Way He Is!!!
I would rather see the real President Obama than a made up version hiding behind make up.

3. yeah, President Obama looks tired, and so would all of us
if we were tossed a plate load of slop that had to be cleaned up yesterday.

He has my full support, hopefully we can get out of this mess before my grandkids get to be as old as me.

Peace

5. Thank you for posting
I look forward every weekend to watching this address. I know if I come to this forum I will find it.

He lays out the devastating problems that we face.....Then he tells us what he has done or plans to do about it. Then he sets about doing it. Maybe I'm the only one, but it makes me feel better.

Through out the whole campaign I could never understand the whole Obamamania thing. I wanted someone with experience.....but I have come to realize that the right choice was made. He is a leader. No matter how much experience you have that doesn't necessarily make you a leader. Now is the time we need a real leader and I think he is fulfilling that roll.

6. I LOVE OBAMA.
Dude, he's the president of the United States, the hardest job in the country, so he's doing an amazing job because I would have totally crashed.

9. Maybe when all this works we'll be one step closer to putting the Conservative mindset in history...

... where it belongs. Probably not though; right wingers still rest all the credit in ending the great depression on World War 2 alone. Even though FDR took office in 1933 and from 1933 to 1940, with the exception of a spike in 1938, unemployment went down every year and there were 3.3 million jobs created by 1938. We entered the war in 1941. Another little fact the right wing fail to mention is that tax rates were over 90% during war time.

-How about healthcare; there is one, just one, half way decent rebuttal I hear from a conservative after someone proposes Universal healthcare and that is "the wait to see a doctor is too long". Wow. Please don't tell me we're that selfish. The United States ranks a pathetic 37th in the world by The World Health Organization; a piss poor ranking for any country, let alone an industrialized one, we have the mortality rate of a third world country, 40 million people who don't even have health insurance but all of that's OK because we don't have to wait that long to see a doctor.

-Public education? In 2003 UNICEF ranked The United States 18 out of the 24 nations with effective educational systems. While conservatives view public education as a cash crop that we need to "stop throwing money at", their solution is the "voucher" system. A system the nation of Chile enacted which resulted in voucher schools being "marginally less effective than public schools in producing academic achievement" (EERA). But they were cheaper on the state. Hey as long as it's cheaper for rich taxpayers right? Wrong.


WHEN ARE WE GOING TO LEARN FROM THE REST OF THE INDUSTRIALIZED WORLD?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
