    Hey, Anderson. While YOU are keeping them honest, WHO's watching you? Rachel Maddow reported last night that CNN aired the Michelle Bachman speech because it had a financial interest in the Tea Party Express. She also reported that the Tea Party Express was a SCAM, using the Tea Party name to bring in money to Sam Russo's business and funnel money into select political campaigns. Is CNN now MAKING ITS OWN NEWS?

    Real life Ex- The company president tells everyone that they are “cost cutting” so they have to shut down a facility say California. So a thousand American jobs are lost – but what they didn’t say was in a month or 2 they would be opening a new facility in India!

    The truth is America actually has tons of jobs. It’s just that the corporations choose to OUTSOURCE it all to China and India. First outsource toy manufacturing, then software programming, then most of the IT manufacturing and today just about everything you see in the department store is always made SOMEWHERE ELSE. They might as well put NEVER MADE IN USA- too expensive. Now they are outsourcing even customer service and accounting. What’s left for us?

    I like your speech Obama, but you are not addressing the real problem: AMERICAN Corporations outsourcing AMERICAN JOBS and then DOING business in USA. Obama, what you have to do is make it difficult for companies that choose to outsource American jobs to do business in America. Heck we can learn something from the Chinese- the only way to do business in China is to build the factory in China – So we should do likewise. If workers in other countries accept a wage that is ten times less than ours that’s their problem, but don’t let American companies give OUR jobs away to other countries and then do business in America. I say if you want to do business in USA then you have to hire IN USA ONLY! And if these outsourcing companies make excuses saying that they can’t compete with the other companies that are outsourcing then it’s the government’s job to EVEN the playing field.

    OMG,LOL Bachman's response to the SOTU speech had clearly not listened to the speech first.
    Ryans "official" response in summary was the criticism of the Obama administrations 2 prior years which we already know well and it appears they are not, despite applause, wanting to work to improve health care only repeal, and have now even got a second repeal bill thru the House.
    I as a very simple minded person think they clearly are Idealogues and completely unchanging and do not know the meaning of either Bi-partisanship or compromise.
    Of course Obama has to wait to see the content of the Senate bills or repeals, but he should be hinting queitly at some parameters to these (Republican) bill sponsors and saying there are limits where it will mean you waste a lot of time which we do not have for more important issues, because of my veto.
    I am going to let you waste 12 months of Republican time/committees on this while I try to fix jobs and economy thru my legislative agenda.
    Have a good day on health care outside my advice, it ends with a veto!! Because I will create jobs and do things while you play Ideological games .. go to it please.
