You contradict yourself. If the "tea party" wants across the board cuts, those cuts will inevitably include defense spending; which will inevitably include the military and "slash the heck out of them".

I'm a little tired of the hyperbole. There's enough wealth in the world to cover our obligations and while the debt issue is a concern, there were few if any conservatives rending their clothing, tearing at their hair and sitting in ashes when George W. Bush expanded Medicare, waged the bloody war of "pre-emption" AND cut taxes. Explain that. I'll be waiting.

President Obama's State of the Union speech was excellent IMO. He hit the important points of his presidency &, with a Lincoln quote, the place for government in our lives. This contrasted with "get gov't our of our lives" rhetoric we've been hearing of late from the GOP candidates

The mention of the successes of saving the US's auto industries, killing Osama bin Laden & other high racking Al Qaeda members, job creation. Plans for the future he mentioned job training, consolidation of agencies performing duplicate tasks, energy & chiding congress for obstuctionism.

>""Each time I look at that flag, I am reminded that our destiny is stitched together like those 50 stars and those 13 stripes," the President said. "No one built this country on their own. This nation is great because we built it together. This nation is great because we worked as a team. This nation is great because we get each other's backs.""<

This is such a contrast from the Republican fest we're being inundated with.
