President Obama came off bad. One term is enough.

So where is Boehner's speech? Don't see it here! I just watched both. The liar-in-chief is at the scare-mongering again! That's as civil and pithy as I can be.

If tax cut for the rich creates jobs – how come it did not create new jobs in the past? Unless confidence return nobody will be stupid enough to invest. Confidence will not return until war ends. Don’t’ be fooled. Republican goal is to defeat President Obama even if it destroys economy. We should wait until next election and let the people decide.

I cannot believe what I am hearing. Mr. Boehner seems to be on another planet.
I'm so sorry to see the press give him such a nice buy -- why are you guys being so nice?
This is a national embarrassment? Can't you get clever like the Brits, and slice and dice him?

I wish wnyc had put this on the radio as they usually do. My computer is not well equipped for streaming video . . .

Why are there so many liberals on this stream and why is the commentary so biased ?
