You couldn't pay me enough to sit and listen to complete garbage doubletalk that comes out of his mouth.

I find it amazing that most folks refuse to call our dear leader a liar. After all, if you tell a lie then you are a liar.

It will be all theater and drama....all of which we've heard before.

As President Obama prepares to deliver the first State of the Union Address of his second term, his job approval ratings appear to be reverting to their medicore norm.  Both CNN's "poll of polls" and an early February survey from Quinippiac show Obama dipping back into the 40s, suggesting that his brief inaugural afterglow is fading:

Overall Approve: 46 percent
Overall Disapprove: 45 percent

Independents: 40/47...
