President Obama will again outline how he will attempt to forge a lasting economic recovery in his State of the Union address on Tuesday. Obama's blueprint will be built around manufacturing, energy and education, and will reportedly include proposals to make college more affordable, address the housing crisis, and hike taxes on the rich.

    Hahaha, it will one long campaign speech and everyone knows this. With him shelving the Keystone XL pipeline until after the election, how can anyone except the koolaid drinkers believe he has any intention of governing. He's a lame duck President already, and he knows it.

    manufacturing = Solyndra
    energy = canceling Keystone pipeline
    education = government subsidized
    housing = government subsidized
    hike taxes = redistribution of wealth

    Unless he is going to tell everyone he is resigning. There is not much chance for the economy. Unless you count the hundreds of millions he will spend on his campaign.

    My daughter is in college. There has been exactly "0" reductions in cost or tax credits since the Obama administration took office. It only goes up. So with four years to fall back on, with the same campaign speech just reheated, what different should anyone expect?

    Wow - I want to make sure I watch that. Unless something more interesting is on, like reruns of "Lost in Space". Obama's speech will just be a rerun anyway...
