Congressional Democrats pan Obama SOTU

Vulnerable democrats in congress are disappointed in Obama's snoozefest SOTU address and several democrat senators say will opposed the president on his plan to use executive orders to circumvent congress, oppose radical nominees and several of Obama's other signature initiatives that he outlined on Tuesday. At least 6 senators are going out of their way to avoid campaigning with him in their home states.

Rats, sinking ship, you know the rest.

Can't say I blame them, kind of the same thing some Repubs did with Bush starting with the 2006 election cycle.

I've said it time and time again. Once the Democrats have had enough feasting on the Republicans, they will then turn on themselves and go into cannibal mode. When there's nothing left of the Republicans and the Democrats insist on vengeance and going for more blood and meat, their only option is to turn on each other.

This activity is much different than the infighting happening in the Republican party. The Democratic party and their ruthless ways will ensure those who they've preyed upon within their own party will bear plenty of battle scars as a result of the lambasting.

Make some popcorn, this is going to be a sight to see.

Please Gerry, elaborate. Tell us the future. And since you have such clairvoyance, can you tell me this week's Powerball numbers too?

You act like you have some real inside knowledge as if you're a political analyst with real credibility. The reality is, you're quite the opposite. If your party had any desire for your skills, they would be paying you big bucks for your work as opposed to you have to fuel speculation day in and day out here with your trolling posts.

Hey Pinocchio, your nose is starting to grow again!

CNN's Dan Merica

Washington (CNN) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid embraced President Barack Obama's standing in an exclusive interview with CNN on Tuesday, stating that he encourages vulnerable Senate Democrats running for re-election in 2014 to invite the President to campaign with them even in states where he is unpopular.

LoLz!

Its simple, Democrats can push for highly popular issues like a minimum wage increase.

Republicans have no agenda other than lower corporate taxes and less regulations. The two only things that solve all problems.

Actions have consequences, GerBear.

Give people free healthcare that costs more than their house and there's consequences.

Raise the minimum wage to make that glass ceiling thicker and there will be consequences.

Personally, I can't wait. Get busy GerBear.

Minimum wage needs to be eradicated not raised. Minimum wage is just another tool used by liberals to expand the poor.

Does sitting on your ass in front of a computer 24/7 and regurgitating bullshit from the Huffington Post qualify you as a political analyst?
If so, Gerry must be making big bucks off this forum.

And at one point a majority of Americans were cool with slavery, too. So what's your point. Even if 100% of people think a dumb idea is a good idea, it's still a dumb idea.

Although neither one of you idiots likely realize it, technically, they're right. At least potentially depending on how many would be affected and definition.

All wealth is relative. 'Poor' is defined relative to the larger whole, typically as we do it at the lowest 15 percentile. If you expand the pool of people in that group by making more people already slightly above now equal to them, then you will expand their number.

You can argue that they are better off at on absolute basis, but then that erodes the whole 'income inequality' bs in principle since that's also depends on a relative argument versus the very top.

The poorest 1% in this country is still better off than most people in many of the shithole countries in the world.
