1) Invest in schools

Everyone gets a certificate of participation.

2) Invest in roads

Without gas to drive on them.

3) Invest in green technology

Launder greenbacks to the Bolshies.

4) Punish everyone who works hard and is successful.

Have no fear unions.

For every "fair share", "fair shot" and "play by the rules" a Republican should walk out. It will be a retread of tired cliches without meaning, signifying nothing.

Is this a repeat of his 2008 campaign speech?

Of course not, he will change the wording slightly and add a lot more I's and me's this time.

It’ll be a growth all right, but death by cancer isn’t high on my list.

GDP contracted .1% in the 4th quarter last year. That is just the start.

Government spending does not raise the GDP one bit. nobama can continue spending money he doesn’t have but it’s a dead end street.

What was that Margaret Thatcher said? “Socialism works great until you run out of other people’s money.” IMHO, that day is fast approaching.

In the annual presidential address to Congress, Obama plans to show he has not lost sight of the economic woes of middle-class Americans

Chairman Zero has never HAD sight of the economic woes of middle-class Americans. More propaganda from al-Reuters.

Like the last three Calls to Worship, I will be unable to attend due to previous commitments. No need to hear what he has to say, we have heard it non-stop for the past FOUR years. Tax the rich, more investment needed in commie ed and green shoots, the GOP is evil personified. It never ends.

America is still asleep and worshiping at the feet of a FALSE IDOL.

Even though I’ve been extremely busy, the only thing that could possibly prevent me from watching this year’s SOTU speech is if I don’t get to rearrange my sock drawer. I’ve been putting it off for long enough... I sorely need to do it, and, it’s been over a year since the last time I rearranged it, on 1/24/12.

“There’s no problem the Democrats have that can’t be solved with faster growth.”

Their (our) problems have been created by their policies, which foster no or slow growth. Unless they change policies, nothing will be solved, things will only get worse.

Christina Romer Knows Tax Hikes Will Kill the Recovery
http://www.forbes.com/sites/charleskadlec/2012/04/23/christina-romer-knows-tax-hikes-will-kill-the-recovery/

In a paper entitled: “The Macrcoeconomic Effects of Tax Changes” published by the prestigious American Economic Review in June 2010 (during her tenure at the White House), she stated: “In short, tax increases appear to have a very large, sustained, and highly significant negative impact on output.”

...The Romers’ baseline estimate suggests that a tax increase of 1% of GDP (about $160 billion in today’s economy) reduces real GDP by 3% over the next 10 quarters.

(me again) Just the payroll tax increase alone is about $100 billion, so for the next 10 quarters, look out below.....

"The potential success of his second term is hugely dependent on the rate at which the economy grows,"

Ok, so starve the beast.

Everyone will be doing it eventually anyway, because there won't be anything left for the politicians to steal. They'll have bled the world dry for the sake of their own power and their own privilege.
Their tower of Babel will fall, and the people of the world will finally live in peace. There will be no one left in power to steal from the people or pit the people against each other.
The world can survive without the politicians money, but the politicians can't survive without ours.

"There's no problem the Democrats have that can't be solved with faster growth. Conversely, there's not much they'll be able to do if growth stays slow."

He's an economic genious! Wow!
