IS there a Republican response, or are they forbidden from disagreeing with the guy in the White House?

A doctor gave the response. I was channel surfing just in time to hear Overbite say in response to the response, "He's been sued for malpractice a few times, and he's a birther who..."

CLICK.

Republican response to Obama's address to Congress

A smaller bone to chew on in complacent political comfort.

I thought the response was weak. And anyone know what the republican side was holding up? Was it maybe the VA death program?

Boustany is Arabic for “garden.” Is he of Middle Eastern descent? Not that there’s anything wrong with that. :)

Nothing but blue sky!

If this was about the uninsured then they should just fix the one or two items and then get back to us with the results in 10 years with a progress report.

After listening to the speech, there is no guaranty of anything that was being stated, other than Government meddling, new regulations more taxes!!!

No ones mind has been changed by o’s speech tonight. I have MS and have had several severe relapses last year. The wording of the original bills, the text of liberal government and political writers and the OPERATING PRACTICES OF CANADA, GB, and all the other socialist countries who are the models of his plan convince me that I would be on the visitors list of the “end of life” crews.
If Obama or congress meant everything they said it would have been an easy speech. “My fellow Americans, the congressional and cabinet members health plan is open to all who want in.” “Thank you, good night.”

But of course that was not offered and not said at all.

Thank you good night.

There was a reply but it lasted less than 2 minutes. I probably shouldn’t have made this a LIVE THREAD.
How can anyone refute Obama’s inane ramblings on such short notice?

Obama babbled for nearly an hour, how can you expect anyone to rebut him 5 minutes later?

As an employer I was not moved by The President’s speech. I have seen my business grind to a halt as this economy is on life support and creating more ways to tax my business will put more folks on welfare in the fourth quarter.

Good jobs are leaving America as the democrats want to tax business to death. Add on Cap and trade and other issues and America is done as a capitalist nation.

I don’t need to provide jobs for almost 300 employees when I have enough for my immediate family for a couple of generations. But my family has run this Business for over 85 years employing hard working Americans.

Does my congressman or my President really care about the 300 employees?

I care for them as that is why I keep my family business open. I know the names of the husbands,wifes, kids and grandkids.

Mr. President should I stay in business or do you tax my business out of business?
