    OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR
    From Obama, a Proudly Liberal Message
    By TED WIDMER
    Published: February 13, 2013

    HE bright blue tie worn by President Obama to his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening was an accurate barometer of the weather. This was the most Democratic State of the Union in some time, not just in the range of government initiatives he proposed — the annual speech is usually a long laundry list — but because it set a new tone.

    Mr. Obama was looser than he has been in these previous annual messages to Congress — and unapologetic about his belief in government as an instrument to improve people’s lives. Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, might have been right when he snorted, in the blur of televised commentary that followed, that it was the most liberal speech by a president to Congress since Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration.

    Though it was his birthday, Lincoln went unmentioned (as did Mardi Gras). The only bit of history in the speech was at the opening, when Mr. Obama took us back to President John F. Kennedy’s second State of the Union address, in 1962 — the start of an eventful year that would include the peaceful resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the integration of Ole Miss, a strong White House response to price-gouging in the steel industry and the rapid expansion of NASA.

    President Barack Obama focused on the economy and called on the nation to “reignite the true engine of America’s economic growth” as he opened the first State of the Union address of his second term.

    “Thanks to the grit and determination of the American people, there is much progress to report,” Obama said. “Together, we have cleared away the rubble of crisis, and we can say with renewed confidence that the state of our union is stronger.”

    He challenged members of Congress to work through their differences for the good of the country. “The American people don’t expect government to solve every problem. They don’t expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue. But they do expect us to put the nation’s interests before party,” he said.

    Quit the BRINKSMANSHIP. QUIT GOING FROM ONE MANUFACTURED CRISIS TO THE NEXT.
    PAY OUR BILLS ONTIME AND UPHOLD THE FULL FAITH & CREDIT OF AMERICA.

    I can’t believe that mofo Ted Nugent gets a front row seat. He should be forced to watch with handcuffs on, since that Secret Service visit didn’t shut his yap up.

    He was supposed to be either dead or in jail if the POTUS won re-election. Time for that dirty mofo to either shyt his pants or turn himself in to the DC Po-Po.
