President Obama put forward relatively modest policy proposals and pulled some punches when it came to big ticket items like immigration and voting rights. Here are six takeaways. http://nbcnews.to/1fvFsFF
President Barack Obama may have made sweeping statements about his unfinished agenda on Tuesday night, but, when it came to specifics, the president used a scalpel rather than an axe when delivering his State of the Union message.  The president put forward a series of rela …

With congressional gridlock standing in the way of his legislative agenda, President Barack Obama is getting some fresh help in adding to his legacy in a different way – through government regulation.

Good stuff. Maybe we will get enough regulation in place to stop the next batch of greedy real estate crooks and bankers and polluters from destroying this country like they tried to do in 2007.

THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH: Let’s keep voting republican so they can address the growing financial gap between the Billionaires and Millionaires.  Perhaps we need more tax loop holes for the bottom of the top one percent to close that growing gap among the rich. Maybe some legislation is needed  to create more off shore tax shelters for this group to avoid paying their share of taxes to support their American Govt. expenses for such things as fighting ISIS or continuing paying the checks and Govt, health and retirement benefits for their politicians in Washington?  They need to take care of their own? Does this sound like a reasonable campaign issue for 2016?

Can he bounce back? Accusations of dirty politics during his reelection bid are unlikely to sink Chris Christie's presidential ambitions. But the Jersey governor, whose opponents already call him a bully, didn't need this headache. http://nbcnews.to/KHRVgj
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has rocketed to the top of the 2016 GOP presidential field, fueled by his straight-talking persona, his tell-it-like-it-is approach to policy and his willingness to reach across the aisle. But that carefully-crafted position could be in trouble, th …
