I missed the SOTU address last night so i read the transcript this morning. Honestly, after reading it I thought to myself how could anybody have a problem with his vision of the country (never mind the practicality of actually doing everything he envisioned). But then I logged on to this messageboard and realized that the hatred that so many people have for this man can never be overcome, regardless of what he says or does.
He proposed something like 29 new government programs...he called for ridiculous gun measures in which statistics don't support his ideas...he went against his own wishes relative to the sequestration issues (total flip flop)...he has shown no true desire to reduce government size, scope or spending.
With Obama, like any other politician, you must look at their actions, not their words. Sadly, Obama's actions probably run contrary to his words and promises more than any president in recent memory. He is a walking, talking contradiction in so many ways that it is almost laughable.
