Here is Marco Rubio’s State of the Union YouTube Video Response to President Barack Obama’s 2013 State of the Union Address. If you missed the State of the Union Address first watch this enhanced YouTube video that adds some more information along with the President Barack Obama’s speech.
This is not one of the strongest responses the GOP has delivered to the State of the Union Addresses. Marco Rubio doesn’t deliver a terribly well prepared response as he contradicts himself on several important points. Knowing what the talking points are going to be it should be expected to have a better and more organized response. Sticking to the regular stump speech points is a little lazy for a response to the State of the Union.

President Obama discusses his nomination of Mary Jo White to lead the Securities and Exchange Commission and Richard Cordray to continue as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
President Obama also runs through his goals for the years and what he wants to get done during his second term in office. Unfortunately the signs are pointing to the GOP keeping their game pretty much the same. So the pressure from the people America needs to increase to remind the Republicans that there last term shenanigans did not go unnoticed. We have huge challenges in America today and we need both political parties to work together to solve the problems they were elected to address.

President Barack Obama was inaugurated for his second term as President of the United States on January 21st, 2013. In fact this was the second time he was sworn in(the second time). President Obama was officially sworn in the day before due to the Constitution stating the exact day that new Presidents is to be sworn in. Vice President Joe Biden was also sworn in in this same manner. Anyway, the celebration and all of the pomp and circumstance took place on January 21st in the manner in which tradition dictates. It was a cold but nice day, turning sunny and mild through Washington as the ceremonies took place.
After President Barack Obama was sworn into office for his second term he gave a brief speech to the nation. This time around the speech was more focused on the people and progressive ideas than his first inaugural speech. Instead of a more far reaching speech this second inaugural speech was more focused on the immediate issues that face America and its people.
It’s a good speech and I would recommend everyone listen to it whether you voted for him or not. It’s important to know where our President wants America to be.

The first weekly address by President Barack Obama was one of good news, kind of. The good news is, Congress was able to pass a OK bill to head off the Fiscal Cliff. However, they definitely kicked a few things down the road. Namely, the Fiscal Cliff and much more budget work that needs to be done. It is great to hear that the tax burden in this country is being more evenly spread. It is also good to see that the GOP can compromise, even when Beoner is not willing to.
The next debt ceiling debate is coming up soon and it is poised to be another repeat of what happened before. President Barack Obama sees this fight coming and is already working to get ahead of that battle.
It was clear what the Debt Ceiling Debacle did to our economy before and it can’t be allowed to happen again. Even though the GOP still holds a majority in Congress, here’s hoping that they have a little more sense than the last Congress, even by a little. With the last minute save of the Fiscal Cliff, there is some hope this may be true.

I hope everyone has had a good holiday season, and I hope that it continues!
Here is this weeks President Obama’s weekly address to the country. As expected it is still focused on the Fiscal Cliff as Congressional Republicans still fail to do their jobs. They are still fighting for the rich and ready and willing to screw the other 98% America for them once again. It is depressing but it is not unexpected. It seems we are stuck in a quagmire with the GOP with little hope of any real solutions. Thankfully, this debacle should stick in American minds like the Debt Ceiling talks did. So when the mid term elections come around we can finish kicking these obstructionist idiots out of our government.
Please do not buy into the standard 30 second broken record BS speech that Beoner has been giving daily. The Democrats have been offering a mountain of solutions for two years, not two months, but they are just dead set on not letting them get anything done. In turn the GOP and Republicans continue to screw us and America. It is become painfully obvious they are not patriots. Doing the best thing for 2% does NOT HELP the 98% of the country it screws. If they were real patriots that loved America and their people they would be fighting for the 98%. So keep that in mind as we zip off the Fiscal Cliff. Unless of course you like to watch America’s economy crash and burn. If that is the case, keep voting Republican. If you want to real progress, vote for people that have a chance of compromise and working for the greater good of our country.
Happy New Year.
Here is President Barack Obama’s Weekly Address for December 30th, 2012
This should make everyone angry (not just Democrats): on December 6, Republican Mitch McConnell introduced a debt ceiling bill, only to filibuster his own bill when Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid calls for a vote on it. This is so insane that I, as many have already, had a hard time even articulating this audacity other than with a primal scream of absolute frustration.
We are doomed; there is no doubt, to go over the fiscal cliff. Like Thelma and Louise we are flying over with Republicans Mitch McConnell and John Boehner driving.
It is as simple as that.
The Senate Republicans can’t even pass a bill that was introduced by Republicans. Everyone must understand, the person who made, crafted, created the bill, Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was the one to reject his OWN LEGISLATION! Seriously, what the hell is wrong with him and the Republicans? For the sake of the American people, and our future, this Republican obstinacy has to stop.
How the hell are we supposed to get anything done with this dysfunctional Republican policy of completely and totally blocking anything the Democrats want to do? Even when what the Democrats want to do is accept the Republican legislation!
This must be clear and everyone needs to understand. It is not Democrats and Republicans fighting over what was to be done.
Republicans said we want Mitch McConnell’s debt ceiling bill.
Democrats said, OK.
Republicans said they do not want Mitch McConnell’s debt ceiling bill.
It was that simple and about that fast, astonishing.
This is precisely the insane shit that needs to be splattered all over the news. Luckily, this was getting some attention because it is so totally and completely insane.
Luckily the American people are smarter and have longer memories then the Republicans want to believe. This last election made it clear that:
Americans watched the Republicans obstruct government.
The American people know it was the Republicans who damaged America by not even trying to come to reason on the debt ceiling talks.
The American people now have seen the Republican Leader in the Senate filibuster his own bill.
The American people see the Republicans playing political games with their livelihoods.
The American people now know the Republicans are not serious about solving any issues. Their only interest is to obstruct Democrats.
I am so flabbergasted by this whole thing it took me some time to even form my rage into comprehensible thoughts. There was all this talk after the general election in politics that the Republicans were humbled and that they were going to change their ways or at least not be so overzealous in obstructing everything the Democrats wanted to do. That is clearly not the case.
The reality of the situation is that they are wounded toddlers. Angry and upset without the ability to comprehend what damage their actions do. The only thing they know is that they didn’t get to do what they wanted. So now, they will make it their mission in life to make those that spanked them pay for it with every opportunity that arises regardless of the damage it does them or to America.
In President Barack Obama Weekly Address for 12/8/12 he urges people to push their congress to come to a compromise before America goes over the Fiscal Cliff.
President Barack Obama points out a few of the highlights of what will happen if we end up going over the Fiscal Cliff if Republicans in Congress can not come to a reasonable compromise. If the recent history of the Republicans are any indication there is little hope that any compromise will be made.
Here are a few of the key points of what will happen as laid out by President Barack Obama in this weeks weekly address.
Tax Cuts end at the end of 2012.
All Families will see a typical tax increase of $2,200 going over the Fiscal Cliff.
Congress can pass tax cuts on everyone’s income up to $250,000, including those that make more.
98% of Americans would not see a tax increase.
Congress can pass tax increase on income of over$250,000.
97% of American Businesses would not see a tax increase.

Here is the Presidential weekly address for November 17th, 2012. This week President Barack Obama is still focused on the looming fiscal cliff. President Obama continues to focus on the cooperations needed in congress. Bills have already been passed by the Senate and are ready to solve this every increasing problem of the fiscal cliff but it will require cooperation from the Republican held Congress. This alone may be a long shot since the Congress has made a point of blocking and stopping anything that has come through. If you doubt this in any way look at what they did to downgrade America’s credit rating when it should have been an otherwise standard increase of the debt ceiling. Now the fear is that after holding America hostage for political gains they are going to hold the middle class and small business holders hostage.Additional public pressure will be needed to make sure that Congress becomes willing to work with President Obama. There are some signs that this might be working.
It seems that this week President Obama is working to keep everyone engaged. He didn’t come out and say it directly but I think it was implied, that everyone needs to urge their Congressman to work with the President to get this financial cliff taken care of so we can move forward with repairing America.
That is my take on President Barack Obama’s November 17th weekly address but I urge everyone to watch it themselves. Below is the President’s address in full.
