Pros, Cons.... What did you think ? I think he may have reached (and this speech was aimed at) his base, many Independants, and moderate Republicans in the sense that he may get their attention for "a little while" at least...

I think he's better at pointing fingers and placing blame than coming up with workable solutions.

He's still campaigning....somebody should tell him at some point that he was elected about 15 months ago.

Narcissists, when in such a position, don't know the difference between leading and campaigning. To our Narcissist in Chief, leadership is passing HIS agenda. That can only happen when enough people have been "sold" to clear the way to passage. To hell with the country and the consequences.

...the scant attention paid in the State of the Union speech to US leadership was pitiful and frankly rather pathetic. The war in Afghanistan, which will soon involve a hundred thousand American troops, merited barely a paragraph. There was no mention of victory over the enemy, just a reiteration of the president’s pledge to begin a withdrawal in July 2011. Needless to say there was nothing in the speech about the importance of international alliances, and no recognition whatsoever of the sacrifices made by Great Britain and other NATO allies alongside the United States on the battlefields of Afghanistan. For Barack Obama the Special Relationship means nothing, and tonight’s address further confirmed this.

Significantly, the global war against al-Qaeda was hardly mentioned, and there were no measures outlined to enhance US security at a time of mounting threats from Islamist terrorists. Terrorism is a top issue for American voters, but President Obama displayed what can only be described as a stunning indifference towards the defence of the homeland.

The Iranian nuclear threat, likely to be the biggest foreign policy issue of 2010, was given just two lines in the speech, with a half-hearted warning of “growing consequences” for Tehran, with no details given at all. There were no words of support for Iranian protestors who have been murdered, tortured and beaten in large numbers by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s thuggish security forces, and no sign at all that the president cared about their plight. Nor was there any condemnation of the brutality of the Iranian regime, as well as its blatant sponsorship of terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As the example of Iran showed, the advance of freedom and liberty across the world in the face of tyranny was not even a footnote in the president’s speech. I cannot think of a US president in modern times who has attached less importance to human rights issues. For the hundreds of millions of people across the world, from Burma to Sudan to Zimbabwe, clamouring to be free of oppression, there was not a shred of hope offered in Barack Obama’s address.

Obama’s world leadership in his first year in office has been weak-kneed and little short of disastrous. He has sacrificed the projection of American power upon the altar of political vanity, with empty speeches and groveling apologies across the world, from Strasbourg to Cairo. He has appeased some of America’s worst enemies, and has extended the hand of friendship to many of the most odious regimes on the face of the earth. Judging by the State of the Union address tonight, we can expect more of the same from an American president who seems determined to lead the world’s greatest power along a path of decline.

bho wasn't brought up in a normal American family, or even in an American family for that matter. He doesn't have the vaguest clue or concern about what is important to Americans - freedom, security, and prosperity - because he isn't an American. Therefor, all he can do is drive what is important to him, the appeasement of our enemies, the promotion of islam, and the destruction of the greatest country in the history of mankind.

The "Hope" ran out and the "Change" was not the change everyone was hoping for. Job losses, broken promises, not listening to the people, trying to force health care down our throats, crap and trade, raising taxes, raising debt, increasing budget, etc. etc.
