working like 3 jobs at one time, still broke.
let's just get to it shall we, had to go to three sites to find the text of this speech, couldn't get it on fox, politico or anything, so let's thank http://www.whitehouse.gov/ for helping bring truth...........
may not get through all of it today, but we are going to keep pushing until we do ALL THREE SPEECHES,
GOV. PALIN...........THANKS FOR HAVING MY BACK, I TOLD YOU WE DOWN LIKE FOUR FLAT TIRES.....
Y'ALL KNOW HOW THIS GOES, MY RESPONSE IS IN BOLD.
Because people need to be able to train for new jobs and careers in today’s fast-changing economy, we’re also revitalizing America’s community colleges. Last month, I saw the promise of these schools at Forsyth Tech in North Carolina. Many of the students there used to work in the surrounding factories that have since left town. One mother of two, a woman named Kathy Proctor, had worked in the furniture industry since she was 18 years old. And she told me she’s earning her degree in biotechnology now, at 55 years old, not just because the furniture jobs are gone, but because she wants to inspire her children to pursue their dreams, too. As Kathy said, “I hope it tells them to never give up.”
COMMUNITY COLLEGE DOES NOT GIVE THE KIND OF EDUCATION, STATE AND PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES DO. NO DISRESPECT, I HAVE ATTENDED CEDAR VALLEY, RICHLAND COLLEGE IN DALLAS, GOOD SCHOOLS NO DOUBT, BUT THE MONEY, TIME, PROFESSORS, SUPPORT SYSTEM, ETC. ETC.........AT BIGGER BETTER SCHOOLS IS PRICELESS. IT'S COOL TO TAKE A CLASS OR TWO AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE, BUT THERE IS NO COMPARISON TO BIGGER SCHOOLS.
SMU, PEPPERDINE, TUITION COSTS ARE CRAZY, BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY..........
UNIVERISTY OF OKLAHOMA, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT TYLER STATE SCHOOLS EXPOSED ME TO DIFFERENT CULTURES AND LARGE AMOUNTS OF PEOPLE. COMMUNITY COLLEGE CAMPUSES ARE DETACHED JUST BY THE NATURE OF THE STUDENTS. COLLEGE IS MORE THAN GOING TO CLASS ONLINE,
IT IS AN EXPERIENCE........
I KNOW IT HELPS, BUT ONLINE MASTER AND DOCTORAL DEGREES SHOULD BE ENDED, NO COMPARISON TO INTERACTION WITH PROFESSORS AND STUDENTS IN A VISCERAL MANNER........
NO DISRESPECT TO MS. K AND HER DREAM, BUT COLLEGE SHOULDN'T BE NECESSARY FOR EMPLOYMENT, HIGHER LEARNING SHOULD BE THAT. FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TAKE THAT NEXT STEP IN ELEVATING THEIR MINDS, NOT JUST THEIR PAYCHECKS.
SUPPORT YOUR PRIVATE AND STATE UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES, THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY. IT IS NOT ELITIST TO ATTEND AND BE TRAINED BY THE BEST. IT HELPS IN YOUR CAREER.
If we take these steps -– if we raise expectations for every child, and give them the best possible chance at an education, from the day they are born until the last job they take –- we will reach the goal that I set two years ago: By the end of the decade, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world. (Applause.)
I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF EXPECTATIONS YOU GOT FOR YOUR SHORTIES AT HOME BARACK............BUT BABY WE ALREADY EXPECT OUR CHILDREN TO BE THE BEST AT BEING THEM. NOTICE I AM FOCUSED ON CAREERS, YOU FOCUSED ON JOBS YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE. WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE ABOUT THE PROPORTION OF COLLEGE GRADUATES WHEN THE MERE PRESENCE OF ONLINE DEGREES TAKES STUDENT VISAS FRAUD AND JUST PLAIN OLE' CHEATING TO THE NEXT LEVEL. I AIN'T WORRIED ABOUT STATS, BARACK.
I WOULDN'T CARE IF WE WERE LOWEST IN THAT CATEGORY, IF THESE CHIDLREN CAN LEARN TO COUNT CHANGE WITHOUT A CELL PHONE AND CAN WORK AND HAVE A CAREER AND BE A BENEFIT TO THIS SOCIETY, I AIN'T WORRIED ABOUT STATS......
WORRIED ABOUT CITIZENS........AND YOU SAY YOU HAVEN'T STARTED YOUR CAMPAIGN?
One last point about education. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of students excelling in our schools who are not American citizens. Some are the children of undocumented workers, who had nothing to do with the actions of their parents. They grew up as Americans and pledge allegiance to our flag, and yet they live every day with the threat of deportation. Others come here from abroad to study in our colleges and universities. But as soon as they obtain advanced degrees, we send them back home to compete against us. It makes no sense.
I KNEW YOU COULDN'T GO WITHOUT THIS. NO DREAM ACT................NO DREAM ACT..................THE SINS OF THE MOTHER BECOME THE BURDEN OF THE CHILD. DIDN'T FEEL GOOD WHEN YOUR WHITE GRANNY CALLED YOU THE N WORD, DID IT BARACK? IF THEY WANTED TO PLEDGE ALLGIANCE THAT BAD, THEY WOULD HAVE GONE DOWN TO THE LOCAL INS OFFICE AND SAID WHAT CAN I DO TO BE DOWN? BEFORE ONE DIME GOES TO THE DREAM ACT,
I WANT REPARATIONS FOR ALL DESCENDENTS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN INVENTORS WHO WERE NOT PAID BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT FULL PEOPLE AT THE TIME.
WE SEND THEM HOME BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE THEY BELONG, IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE.........
MAYBE NOT TO YOU, BUT THEN AGAIN, YOU ASK ME TO SEE THE RESULTS OF MY PAP SMEAR THROUGH OBAMACARE, BUT YOU WON'T COME OFF THAT LONG FORM IN EXECUTIVE ORDER #13489 OR YOUR PEOPLE'S RECORDS THAT YOU SEALED.
LOOK, ILLEGAL CHILDREN, YOU ALL NEED TO GO CUSS OUT YOUR PARENTS RIGHT NOW, BOOK YOUR PLANE TICKET HOME AND BUILD UP YOUR COUNTRY, TAKE THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM HERE HOME.
B/C WE CAN'T AFFORD MEDICARE, WE SURE AS HELL CAN'T AFFORD THE STUDENT AID THAT COMES ALONG WITH YOU ALL, THE BURDEN ON OUR SCHOOL DISTRICTS BECAUSE YOUR ILLEGAL SELVES CAN'T BE ON THE TAX ROLLS, THE BUMPING OUT OF QUALIFIED LEGAL AMERICAN CHILDREN, MY SWEET BABIES FOR IN-STATE TUITION AND AID..........
Y'ALL GOTTA GO, TAKE THAT UP WITH YOUR PARENTS.
I KNOW YOU WANTED 6 YEAR OLDS TO HAVE SEX EDUCATION, BARACK, HERE'S SOME FOR YOU.
KNOW THE CITIZENSHIP STATUS OF WHO YOU PLACE YOUR PENIS IN.
KNOW THE CITIZENSHIP STATUS OF WHO YOU LET PUT SEMEN IN YOU.
IT HELPS.............LET PARENTS BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN.........
RUDE, BUT TRUE.
IF YOU SHOWED THAT KIND OF LOVE BARACK TO CHILDREN OF SOLDIERS WHO LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR US OR POLICE OR INCERATED PARENTS WHO LOVE THEIR LEGAL AMERICAN CHILDREN........IT WOULD BE A BEAUTIFUL THING,
BUT THAT'S TOO CLOSE TO RIGHT FOR YOU.......
Now, I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. And I am prepared to work with Republicans and Democrats to protect our borders, enforce our laws and address the millions of undocumented workers who are now living in the shadows. (Applause.) I know that debate will be difficult. I know it will take time. But tonight, let’s agree to make that effort. And let’s stop expelling talented, responsible young people who could be staffing our research labs or starting a new business, who could be further enriching this nation. (Applause.)
BORDER SECURITY DOES NOT EQUATE TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. YOU TALKING ABOUT ENFORCING LAWS AND YET ONE OF YOUR FIRST ACTS WAS TO STOP WORKPLACE RAIDS, SEAL YOUR RECORDS, AND TELL PEOPLE IN YOUR INAGURAL ADDRESS TO "JUST GET USED TO IT"
ARE YOUR CHILDREN IN THE ROOM?
B/C I KNOW YOU NOT TALKING TO GROWN PEOPLE LIKE THAT. THE ILLEGAL PEOPLE AIN'T LIVING IN THE SHADOWS, THE CITIZENS ARE......
WE DON'T NEED NOBODY TO STAFF OUR RESEARCH LAB, WE GOT BEAUTIFUL INTELLIGENT CHILDREN RIGHT HERE....... WE GOT LEGAL AMERICAN CHILDREN TO START BUSINESSES AS WELL.
WHAT I AM WILLING TO DO IS THE BACK OF THE LIST PROGRAM WHICH MEANS YOU GET TO BE LEGAL WITH A 250,000 DEBT TO UNCLE SAM FOR DAY ONE FOR ALL THE COSTS YOU PLACED ON OUR SYSTEM.
NO GOING TO COLLEGE, SERVE IN OUR MILITARY ONLY. DOING WHAT THE FOLK ON THE FIELD TELL YOU TO DO, THEN YOU GET TO BE A CITIZEN WITH THE 250,000 TAX ON.
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET NO AID OF ANY KIND FOR 5 YEARS AND IF YOU COMMIT ANY PENALTY OR CRIME INCLUDING CHILD SUPPORT IN THAT TIME, YOU GOING BACK TO YOUR PEOPLE.
NO WAY AM I GOING TO LET ILLEGAL AMERICA COME UP TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE.
IF YOUR COUNTRY IS AS BAD AS YOU SAY IT IS, ILLEGAL AMERICA, THEN YOU SHOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE WHATEVER WE OFFER.
IF NOT, GO HOME.
YOU NOT GOING TO COME INTO MY HOUSE, SIT AT MY TABLE, EAT UP ALL MY FOOD TRYING TO MAKE ME FEEL BAD FOR HAVING FOOD IN THE FIRST PLACE AND REORGANIZE MY HOME.................
SO GET OVER IT. START ENFORCING THE WORKPLACE RAIDS BARACK BECAUSE THAT IS YOUR JOB. HELP TEXAS AND ARIZONA BY SENDING TROOPS AND NOT DOING BUSINESS WITH COUNTRIES SUING ARIZONA AND ATTACKING THE VERY CONCEPT OF SOVERIENGTY. YOU WANT SOME HELP ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION?
OPEN UP EXECUTIVE ORDER#13489 AND GET ROMNEY'S PAPERWORK TOO, HE AIN'T LEGAL EITHER..........
YOU DO THAT, I'LL GET YOU BI-PARTISIAN SUPPORT ON IMMIGRATION, UNTIL THEN SAVE YOUR "HAND" TIME FOR YOURSELF, WE NOT IN THE MOOD TO GET SCREWED OVER RIGHT NOW.
The third step in winning the future is rebuilding America. To attract new businesses to our shores, we need the fastest, most reliable ways to move people, goods, and information -- from high-speed rail to high-speed Internet. (Applause.)
BABY, THERE IS NO STEP FOR OUR FUTURE NEW...............FAITH, FREEDOM, FELLOWSHIP, WE BEEN DOING THIS 400 YEARS NOW. THE WAY TO ATTRACT NEW BUSINESS IS...........
ERIC BOLLING, BABY, MAKE UP A CARD FOR THIS MAN.
STOP TAXING BUSINESSES................MAKE TAX CUTS PERMANENT SO BUSINESSES CAN MAKE LONG TERM PLANS............STOP CHANGING RULES AND REGULATIONS EVERY FIVE MINUTES, AND STAY OUT OF BUSIENSS.
WE DRIVE CARS IN THIS COUNTRY, WE GO ON VACATIONS AND STOP ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND SUPPORT BUSINESS.
YOU WANT TO GO TO JAPAN? PLEASE DO ALL OF US A FAVOR AND DROP ERIC HOLDER OFF SOMEWHERE OVER THERE AS WELL.
YOU MAY THINK LIKE AN ASIAN, BUT BABY, THIS AMERICA, ALL DAY LONG.
TAKE YOUR ASIAN WET DREAMS, BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM. TURN JAPAN INTO JAPAN, BUT AMERICA IS GOING TO STAY AMERICA.
THIS AIN'T CITIVILLE............
Our infrastructure used to be the best, but our lead has slipped. South Korean homes now have greater Internet access than we do. Countries in Europe and Russia invest more in their roads and railways than we do. China is building faster trains and newer airports. Meanwhile, when our own engineers graded our nation’s infrastructure, they gave us a “D.”
DO YOU NEED A CONDOM FOR YOUR LOVE FEST WITH SOUTH KOREA. MAN THEY SELL STUFF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FREEWAY IN KOREA, YOU WANNA DO THAT TO?
AND CREDIT TO MR. DELMAR LEE MEADOWS, WHO POINTED OUT WASN'T THAT INFRASTRUCTURE JAZZ COVERED IN THE LAST THREE STIMULUS BILLS? SEE ROADS ARE PAID THROUGH TAXES,BECAUSE TAXES CAN'T BE COLLECTED ON FOLK WHO ARE PAID UNDER THE TABLE.
YOU NOT GETTING NO MORE MONEY FOR NO MORE ROADS..........
PUT THE STRAIGHT DOWN............................
PUT IT DOWN RIGHT NOW..............
YOUR SICK TWISTED CRACK FISCAL ORGY IS OVER, THE 112TH KNOWS BETTER.
HEY BROTHER BOEHNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I KNOW WE MAKING IT HARD ON YOU, BUT MUCH LOVE......
We have to do better. America is the nation that built the transcontinental railroad, brought electricity to rural communities, constructed the Interstate Highway System. The jobs created by these projects didn’t just come from laying down track or pavement. They came from businesses that opened near a town’s new train station or the new off-ramp.
YOU NEED TO DO BETTER. IT IS ONLY BECAUSE OF THE STRENGTH AND DEDICATION OF LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS, WE NOT BANKRUPT NOW. NOW, I LOVE THE PLAY OKLAHOMA, BUT BARACK YOU DO KNOW THAT THOSE DAYS ARE GONE............
CATCH UP, WE NOT GOING TO PAY FOR MENIAL JOBS SO YOU CAN HIRE THESE ILLEGALS, IF A PRIVATE BUSINESS WANTS TO BUILD A RAIL THEY WOULD HAVE BECAUSE THEY WOULD GET THIS STRANGE FUNNY FEELING INSIDE, WHATS IT CALLED STUART VARNEY?
A PROFIT! IF THERE IS A BUCK TO BE MADE, SOMEONE WILL DO IT.
THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT INTO THAT, GO CHECK YOUR LOCAL INVESTMENT BANKER, SCREW ALL THIS ONLINE TRADING, GO SEE A STOCK BROKER.........
So over the last two years, we’ve begun rebuilding for the 21st century, a project that has meant thousands of good jobs for the hard-hit construction industry. And tonight, I’m proposing that we redouble those efforts. (Applause.)
ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE SHOVEL-LESS READY JOBS THAT YOU POPPED CRAP ABOUT FOR STIMULUS ONE, TWO OR THREE? DO YOU EVEN READ THIS STUFF OR DO THEY JUST MAKE YOU FOCUS ON NOT LOOKING DIRECTLY AT THE TELEPROMPTER?
We’ll put more Americans to work repairing crumbling roads and bridges. We’ll make sure this is fully paid for, attract private investment, and pick projects based [on] what’s best for the economy, not politicians.
YOU DO REMEMBER YOU SAID THIS SAME THING FOR THE STIMULUS, PROPS TO MR. MEADOWS AGAIN............THIS IS KIND OF LIKE YOUR DOG BOYFRIEND LADIES WHO SAY JUST LET ME PUT THE _______ IN. DO YOU GRASP MY POINT BECAUSE I CAN'T MAKE IT ANY PLAINER.........NO MATTER THE WORDS, YOU KNOW YOU GETTING SCREWED..
Within 25 years, our goal is to give 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail. (Applause.) This could allow you to go places in half the time it takes to travel by car. For some trips, it will be faster than flying –- without the pat-down. (Laughter and applause.) As we speak, routes in California and the Midwest are already underway.
WITHIN 25 YEARS, OUR CHILDREN WILL BE FISCAL SLAVES TO THE GOVERNMENT. AGAIN, WE NOT JAPAN, WE DRIVE CARS, WE ROLL SPINNERS, WE GO TO DRIVE-INS, AND SONICS, AND STUFF. WE AIN'T WORRIED ABOUT GETTING THEIR QUICKER, YOU GOT TWO KIDS AND STILL AIN'T FIGURED OUT IT'S ABOUT THE RIDE..........
NO WONDER MICHELLE IS GOING ON VACATION ALL THE TIME
Within the next five years, we’ll make it possible for businesses to deploy the next generation of high-speed wireless coverage to 98 percent of all Americans. This isn’t just about -- (applause) -- this isn’t about faster Internet or fewer dropped calls. It’s about connecting every part of America to the digital age. It’s about a rural community in Iowa or Alabama where farmers and small business owners will be able to sell their products all over the world. It’s about a firefighter who can download the design of a burning building onto a handheld device; a student who can take classes with a digital textbook; or a patient who can have face-to-face video chats with her doctor.
AGAIN, THE BIGGEST BUSINESSES ON THE INTERNET ARE PORN, PROTITUTION AND CHILD SLAVERY. WE DON'T NEED TO BE CONNECTED EVERYWHERE, AND DO YOU ALL KNOW WHAT ALL THOSE CABLES DO THE ROOT ZONE OF THE EARTH? IT MATTERS. WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FIRES WITHOUT BLACKBERRIES FOR HOW LONG? WE RUIN OUR EARTH AND ENSLAVE SO MANY AFRICANS WITH OUR FETISH FOR THIS ELECTRONIC CRAP WHEN HEMP CAN MAKE PAPER WITH LESS WASTE AND LESS COSTS, AND I DON'T WANT TO SEE MY DOCTOR ONLINE WHEN THAT BURNING SENSATION HITS........
I NEED MY DOCTOR IN MY PRESENCE............NOT THAT I HAVE A BURNING SENSATION BUT YOU GET MY POINT. AND EVEN IF ALL THIS WAS COOL,
WE DON'T HAVE NO MONEY............
WE DON'T HAVE NO MONEY............
WE DON'T HAVE NO MONEY........
All these investments -– in innovation, education, and infrastructure –- will make America a better place to do business and create jobs. But to help our companies compete, we also have to knock down barriers that stand in the way of their success.
DID YOU AND ROBERT GIBBS JUST TAKE PARTS FROM THE LAST TIME YOU ALL ROLLED AROUND THE FLOOR ASKING FOR MONEY? YOU KNOW WE CAN READ, WE'VE HEARD ALL THIS BEFORE, YOU GOT AN ALL DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT FOR TWO YEARS, WHAT OTHER OBSTABLES DID YOU ENCOUNTER?
THE CONSTISTUTION, THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.
For example, over the years, a parade of lobbyists has rigged the tax code to benefit particular companies and industries. Those with accountants or lawyers to work the system can end up paying no taxes at all. But all the rest are hit with one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world. It makes no sense, and it has to change. (Applause.)
YOU MEAN THE LOBBYIST, YOU MET IN THE BASEMENT WITH TO COME UP WITH OBAMACARE..........LET ME DUMMY THIS DOWN TO YOU, FLAT RATE MEANS NO TAX RETURNS BROKE FOLK................NO MORE TAX RETURNS...............
SO WHAT SOME FOLK HID THEIR MONEY, THEY ALSO GIVE ENDOWMENTS, SCHOLARSHIPS, FOUDNATIONS...........STOP HATING ON OUR SYTSEM.
IF YOU WERE SERIOUS ABOUT CORPORATE TAX RETURNS, THEN YOU WOULD HAVE MADE THE TAX CUTS PERMANENT FOR ALL. AND ADDRESSED CAPTIAL GAINS AND ALL THAT STUFF.
I DON'T KNOW ALL ABOUT THIS STUFF, BUT THE PEOPLE AT FOX BUSINESS CHANNEL DO. http://www.fox.com/ CHECK THEM OUT, BUT YOU GET MY POINT.
So tonight, I’m asking Democrats and Republicans to simplify the system. Get rid of the loopholes. Level the playing field. And use the savings to lower the corporate tax rate for the first time in 25 years –- without adding to our deficit. It can be done. (Applause.)
MAN, IF IT COULD BE DONE, YOU WOULD HAVE DONE IT. WHAT YOU STOLE EASY E ERIC CANTOR'S IDEA BOX FOR REAL? MAN DO YOU HAVE NO SHAME.............IT'S OKAY, EAZY E, BABY..........IT'S OKAY.
WE GOT A POLITICAL KLEPTO IN THE ROOM, LORD LET ME HIDE PAUL RYAN RIGHT NOW.......
To help businesses sell more products abroad, we set a goal of doubling our exports by 2014 -– because the more we export, the more jobs we create here at home. Already, our exports are up. Recently, we signed agreements with India and China that will support more than 250,000 jobs here in the United States. And last month, we finalized a trade agreement with South Korea that will support at least 70,000 American jobs. This agreement has unprecedented support from business and labor, Democrats and Republicans -- and I ask this Congress to pass it as soon as possible. (Applause.)
YOU KNOW IF WE KICKED WAL MART OUT, WE WOULD HAVE THAT MANY JOBS RIGHT HERE WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING. SCREW CHINA, SERIOUSLY........ INDIA? PLEASE, THEY SHOW A PROFIT BECAUSE THEIR CASTE SYSTEM ENSLAVES FOLKS AND IT IS NOT REFLECTED IN THEIR GDP. GO TO KOREA BABY, CAN YOU TAKE SOLIS WITH YOU TOO? DON'T PASS IT..........I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS BILL IS, BUT IF WE CAN'T TAKE CARE OF THE HOMIES COLUMBIA AND PANAMA FIRST........
IT'S GOING TO BE PROBLEMS......
WE AIN'T HERE TO MAKE ASIA BIGGER THAN AMERICA, AND YOU WONDER WHY EXECUTIVE ORDER #13489 IS A CONCERN? ROMNEY............YOU ILLEGAL TOO. DON'T EVEN BOTHER TO RUN. GULIANI IF PALIN CAN MAKE YOU RUN, AND OBAMA'S ACTIONS CAN'T, THEN YOU NEED TO REALLY CHECK IF YOUR NETHER REGION HAS LEFT. ROVE IS IT NOT CALL GRAVITAS?
Now, before I took office, I made it clear that we would enforce our trade agreements, and that I would only sign deals that keep faith with American workers and promote American jobs. That’s what we did with Korea, and that’s what I intend to do as we pursue agreements with Panama and Colombia and continue our Asia Pacific and global trade talks. (Applause.)
WE NOT FOR THE ASIA PACIFIC, YOU ARE..........PANANA AND COLUMBIA STUFF WAS ON THE TABLE BEFORE YOU RAN OVER TO SOUTH KOREA FOR THEM TO MAKE A FOOL OF US. DANA PERINO PUT US UP ON GAME ABOUT SOUTH AMERICA AND TRADE AGREEMENTS LAST YEAR..........YOU SLIPPING........OR JUST DON'T CARE. MAN YOU TALK A LOT.
To reduce barriers to growth and investment, I’ve ordered a review of government regulations. When we find rules that put an unnecessary burden on businesses, we will fix them. (Applause.) But I will not hesitate to create or enforce common-sense safeguards to protect the American people. (Applause.) That’s what we’ve done in this country for more than a century. It’s why our food is safe to eat, our water is safe to drink, and our air is safe to breathe. It’s why we have speed limits and child labor laws. It’s why last year, we put in place consumer protections against hidden fees and penalties by credit card companies and new rules to prevent another financial crisis. (Applause.) And it’s why we passed reform that finally prevents the health insurance industry from exploiting patients. (Applause.)
YOU NOT HERE TO RE-REGULATE GOVERNMENT TO WHAT YOU SEE FIT. THAT'S CONGRESS JOB. YOUR JOB IS TO ENFORCE THE RULES. COMMON SENSE SAFEGUARDS...........
WHAT'S COMMON SENSE?
B/C THAT LOVE FEST YOU CALL WITH ASIA, IRAN, MUSLIM AND SOCIALIST COUNTRIES............AIN'T COMMON OVER HERE MAYBE IN JAKARTA?
ONCE AGAIN, WE GROWN, WE GOT THIS.
ENFORCE YOUR RULES, GO PLAY SOME GOLF, RIP OFF AMERICA, STICK TO YOUR BASICS...........
BECAUSE YOU STARTING TO SOUND LIKE MY DADDY.
COMMON SENSE LIKE KICKING FOLK OUT WHO DON'T BELONG HERE, OH.......
BUT THAT MEANS FOLK LIKE YOUR AUNT.
MAN, MY POINT IS UNLESS YOU TURN OUT TO BE GOD, THE MAN I AM SLEEPING WITH AND THERE AIN'T ENOUGH CRACK IN THE WORLD FOR THAT, FLAVA FLAV GOT A CHANCE BEFORE YOU DO OR TURN OUT TO BE MY DAD AND I DIDN'T KNOW.
SAVE THE YOU ARE GOING TO DO WHAT I SAY STUFF FOR YOUR HOUSEHOLD.
Now, I have heard rumors that a few of you still have concerns about our new health care law. (Laughter.) So let me be the first to say that anything can be improved. If you have ideas about how to improve this law by making care better or more affordable, I am eager to work with you. We can start right now by correcting a flaw in the legislation that has placed an unnecessary bookkeeping burden on small businesses. (Applause.)
SO A RECORD MANDATE ON ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT FROM MUNICIPAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL IS A JOKE TO YOU AND YOU WONDER WHY WON'T BE NO 2012 FOR YOU? WE NOT GOING TO IMPROVE THE LAW, FIRST OF ALL, THE MANDATE IN IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, SECOND OF ALL, WE CAN'T AFFORD IT, KEEPING THE GOOD PARTS DON'T HELP PAY FOR IT, AND MOST IMPORANTLY, THE REAL BOSS OF AMERICA.
LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS SAID NO..........
THAT'S IT, THAT'S ALL.......... WE CAN CORRECT THE FLAW BY REMOVING THE BILL.
MONEY MITCH, BABY, YOU AIN'T GOT THAT MUCH TIME. I SUGGEST IN THREE WEEKS YOU GET THAT BILL ON THE SENATE FLOOR BECAUSE WHEN THE SNOW THAWS.........LET'S JUST THE GROUND WON'T BE THE ONLY THING HEATING UP.
WE NOT PLAYING WITH YOU. YOU DON'T WORK FOR OBAMA.
YOU WORK FOR US.
PUT THE BILL ON THE FLOOR, THE REPEAL BILL, MAKE THE SENATE VOTE ON IT.
What I’m not willing to do -- what I’m not willing to do is go back to the days when insurance companies could deny someone coverage because of a preexisting condition. (Applause.)
BABY, BARACK..........IT'S NOT UP TO YOU. YOU CAN VETO WHAT YOU WANT, I GUARANTEE THE VOTES TO OVER COME IT. YOU NOT IN CHARGE OF OUR LIVES, YOU ARE THE ENFORCEMENT BRANCH OF THE RULES CONGRESS COMES UP WITH.
DO WHAT YOU WANT, BUT YOU WILL RESPECT THE WILL OF LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS............SAVE THAT LOVING ILLEGALS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY SERVICE TIME WHEN WE GET YOU OUT OF HERE.
I’m not willing to tell James Howard, a brain cancer patient from Texas, that his treatment might not be covered. I’m not willing to tell Jim Houser, a small business man from Oregon, that he has to go back to paying $5,000 more to cover his employees. As we speak, this law is making prescription drugs cheaper for seniors and giving uninsured students a chance to stay on their patients’ -- parents’ coverage. (Applause.)
YOU DON'T WANT TO TELL HIM, I WILL. MR. HOWARD, I AM SORRY THIS MAN EVEN LED YOU ON LIKE THAT, BUT WE ALL KNOW MR. OBAMA IS A BIG TEASE. WE CAN'T AFFORD THIS BILL, SO YOU GOTTA PAY MORE, BE THANKFUL YOU IN TEXAS WHERE YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY STATE INCOME TAX, SOME GOT IT HARDER THAN YOU..........
THAT WASN'T SO HARD WAS IT BARACK.
So I say to this chamber tonight, instead of re-fighting the battles of the last two years, let’s fix what needs fixing and let’s move forward. (Applause.)
WE MOVED FORWARD NOV. 3RD..............
Now, the final critical step in winning the future is to make sure we aren’t buried under a mountain of debt.
MAN, DID YOU HONESTLY SAY THAT? GREEN ANGLES IN MALIBU FED EX ME(SUPPORT FED EX, AN AMERICAN BUSINESS!) SEND ME SOME '91 BUBBA KUSH STAT!
THE PERSON WHO BURIED US UNDER IS YOU AND YOU THINK WE GOING TO TRUST YOU WITH THE SHOVEL TO GET OUT.................
We are living with a legacy of deficit spending that began almost a decade ago. And in the wake of the financial crisis, some of that was necessary to keep credit flowing, save jobs, and put money in people’s pockets.
IT STARTED TWO DECADES AGO WITH THIS DUDE WHO DOES YOUR JOB FROM TIME TO TIME. WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON. IT WASN'T NECESSARY, GM COULD HAVE FAILED............AMERICA WOULDNT' HAVE DIED, BUT YOUR POL NUMBERS WOULD HAVE.......
AGAIN, WE NOT DUMMIES NOR CHILDREN............
But now that the worst of the recession is over, we have to confront the fact that our government spends more than it takes in. That is not sustainable. Every day, families sacrifice to live within their means. They deserve a government that does the same.
IS IT REALLY OVER? ASK A COAL MINER IS IT OVER? ASK THE GULF IS IT OVER? ASK KANSAS CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT IS BANKRUPT IS IT OVER? DALLAS INDEPDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT IS IT OVER? THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA IS IT OVER? NOW I KNOW, IT'S HARD FOR YOU TO SEE WITH ALL OF YOUR EXCLUSIVE TRIPS AND ALL.
WE DO DESERVE A GOVERNMENT THAT DOES THE SAME, WHICH IS WHY WE ARE GETTING YOU OUT OF THERE LIKE A JOSH HAMILITON HOME RUN (WHAT'S UP RANGERS................SPRING TRAINING IS COMING!)
So tonight, I am proposing that starting this year, we freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years. (Applause.) Now, this would reduce the deficit by more than $400 billion over the next decade, and will bring discretionary spending to the lowest share of our economy since Dwight Eisenhower was President.
SENATOR RON PAUL, HANDLE THAT...........500 BILLION IN CUTS, HIRING FREEZES, NO MORE CZARS, WE GOING WELL BEYOND THAT. HIT UP SENATOR PAUL'S PAGE LET HIM KNOW WHAT YOU THINK NEEDS TO BE CUT, EAZY-E ERIC CANTOR GOT A PAGE AND BOEHNER, I THINK.
This freeze will require painful cuts. Already, we’ve frozen the salaries of hardworking federal employees for the next two years. I’ve proposed cuts to things I care deeply about, like community action programs. The Secretary of Defense has also agreed to cut tens of billions of dollars in spending that he and his generals believe our military can do without. (Applause.)
YOU AIN'T CUT.................FILL IN THAT BLANK. WHAT ABOUT ALL THESE CZARS AND COUNCILS CIRCUMVENTING CONGRESSIONAL POWER ON OUR DIME. YOU WANT TO CUT ACORN NOW AFTER YOU WROTE THE MANUAL ON HOW TO SQUAT IN AMERICA FOR AT LEAST TEN YEARS............GATES, THAT ANOTHER ISSUES.
CUT OUT SEC 8, GO BACK TO THE PROJECTS, GO BACK TO GOVERNMENT CHEESE.
I recognize that some in this chamber have already proposed deeper cuts, and I’m willing to eliminate whatever we can honestly afford to do without. But let’s make sure that we’re not doing it on the backs of our most vulnerable citizens. (Applause.) And let’s make sure that what we’re cutting is really excess weight. Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may make you feel like you’re flying high at first, but it won’t take long before you feel the impact. (Laughter.)
THE MOST VULNERABLE CITIZENS KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS. THEY KNOW THEY HAVE TO DEPEND ON THOSE GOD AWFUL PEOPLE WHAT ARE THEY CALLED RUSH? RICH PEOPLE TO GIVE BACK. BECAUSE IT IS MY GENERATION BACKS THAT PAY FOR ALL OF THIS.
IF YOU AIN'T PAYING, YOU AIN'T SAYING........
IF YOU REMOVE AN ENGINE, CAN THE PLANE FLY AT ALL?
MAN, YOU RIGHT JAKARTA'S EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM NEEDS SOME WORK. DID YOU ALL SEE JOE BIDEN'S FACE AT THIS MOMENT, CLASSIC......
Now, most of the cuts and savings I’ve proposed only address annual domestic spending, which represents a little more than 12 percent of our budget. To make further progress, we have to stop pretending that cutting this kind of spending alone will be enough. It won’t. (Applause.)
YOU STOLE PAUL RYAN'S NOTES DIDN'T YOU? YOU THIS GREAT POLITICITANS AND THIS JUST KNOW HITS YOU.............
SOBRIETY IS A BEAST AIN'T IT, BARACK?
The bipartisan fiscal commission I created last year made this crystal clear. I don’t agree with all their proposals, but they made important progress. And their conclusion is that the only way to tackle our deficit is to cut excessive spending wherever we find it –- in domestic spending, defense spending, health care spending, and spending through tax breaks and loopholes. (Applause.)
CASE IN POINT, HOW MANY COMMITTEES CONCERNING MONEY DO WE HAVE ALREADY? WE DON'T NEED NO MORE OF YOUR INVENTIONS? WE ALREADY KNEW WE WAS BROKE, YOU THE ONLY CLUELESS ONE IN THE ROOM.
This means further reducing health care costs, including programs like Medicare and Medicaid, which are the single biggest contributor to our long-term deficit. The health insurance law we passed last year will slow these rising costs, which is part of the reason that nonpartisan economists have said that repealing the health care law would add a quarter of a trillion dollars to our deficit. Still, I’m willing to look at other ideas to bring down costs, including one that Republicans suggested last year -- medical malpractice reform to rein in frivolous lawsuits. (Applause.)
LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING REP SENATE BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE THE CORRUPTION KICKS IN.........
DON'T MONEY MITCH LET THE THOUGHT OF TORT REFORM KEEP YOU FROM THAT REPEAL HITTING THAT FLOOR. BOEHNER, PUT SOMEBODY ON THAT. TORM REFORM CAN COME IN ITS OWN SEPERATE BILL, BUT IT WILL NOT BE A LEVERAGE TOOL.
To put us on solid ground, we should also find a bipartisan solution to strengthen Social Security for future generations. (Applause.) We must do it without putting at risk current retirees, the most vulnerable, or people with disabilities; without slashing benefits for future generations; and without subjecting Americans’ guaranteed retirement income to the whims of the stock market. (Applause.)
BABY, SOME HURT IS COMING, GET OVER IT............. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE CUTS, THE ONLY FOLK THAT DON'T WANT TO ACCEPT THAT IS YOU AND THE HILL..........
THAT'S THE WAY IT GOES SOMETIMES....... GOD FILLS IN THE BLANKS MAN CAN'T.
And if we truly care about our deficit, we simply can’t afford a permanent extension of the tax cuts for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans. (Applause.) Before we take money away from our schools or scholarships away from our students, we should ask millionaires to give up their tax break. It’s not a matter of punishing their success. It’s about promoting America’s success. (Applause.)
WHO DO YOU THINK GIVES THOSE SCHOLARSHIPS? THIS IS WHY EVERY REP. SENATOR THAT SIGNED THAT TAX CUT DEAL NEEDS THEIR BUT WHOPPED, WHERE IS A SWTICH? HE JUST EXTENDED FOR TWO YEARS SO HE CAN MAKE A CAMPAIGN TALKING ABOUT HOW ALL RICH PEOPLE ARE BAD EXCEPT FOR HIM.
MAKE THE TAX CUTS PERMANENT AND MAKE ANY LEGAL GOP CONTENDER, THAT MEANS ROMNEY MOVE THE SIDE, CHECK OUT WE THE PEOPLE ON FACEBOOK, THEY GOT THE STORY ADDRESS IT. IT IS ABOUT PUNISHING THEIR SUCESS, IT IS ABOUT SPENDING SOMETHING THAT DON'T BELONG TO YOU.
BUT YOU AND MICHELLE GOT THAT DOWN PACKED DON'T YOU
In fact, the best thing we could do on taxes for all Americans is to simplify the individual tax code. (Applause.) This will be a tough job, but members of both parties have expressed an interest in doing this, and I am prepared to join them. (Applause.)
MAN, PLEASE..................BROKE PEOPLE FLAT TAX MEANS NO TAX RETURNS. LET IT GO.
So now is the time to act. Now is the time for both sides and both houses of Congress –- Democrats and Republicans -– to forge a principled compromise that gets the job done. If we make the hard choices now to rein in our deficits, we can make the investments we need to win the future.
WE MADE OUR CHOICE ON NOV. 3RD, THAT WHY BOEHNER GOT THE CHECKBOOK, AND HE ALREADY KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS.
Let me take this one step further. We shouldn’t just give our people a government that’s more affordable. We should give them a government that’s more competent and more efficient. We can’t win the future with a government of the past. (Applause.)
WE AMERICA, YOU AND EVERY OTHER ILLEGAL TAKE PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES TO GET OVER HERE. WE DOING ALLRIGHT, WE DONT NEED YOU TO CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT, IF YOU CAN'T WORK WITH THE SYSTEM, MAYBE YOU NOT THE RIGHT DUDE FOR THE JOB?
We live and do business in the Information Age, but the last major reorganization of the government happened in the age of black-and-white TV. There are 12 different agencies that deal with exports. There are at least five different agencies that deal with housing policy. Then there’s my favorite example: The Interior Department is in charge of salmon while they’re in fresh water, but the Commerce Department handles them when they’re in saltwater. (Laughter.) I hear it gets even more complicated once they’re smoked. (Laughter and applause.)
IT'S CALLED CHECKS AND BALANCES SO MORONS LIKE YOU WON'T DESTROY OUR COUNTRY SO EASILY...........
Now, we’ve made great strides over the last two years in using technology and getting rid of waste. Veterans can now download their electronic medical records with a click of the mouse. We’re selling acres of federal office space that hasn’t been used in years, and we’ll cut through red tape to get rid of more. But we need to think bigger. In the coming months, my administration will develop a proposal to merge, consolidate, and reorganize the federal government in a way that best serves the goal of a more competitive America. I will submit that proposal to Congress for a vote –- and we will push to get it passed. (Applause.)
I CAN ALSO STEAL ALL THAT MEDICAL INFO ONLINE SO MUCH EASIER........THANKS...... DID YOU USE THAT ROOM TO GIVE THE BEE KEEPER YOU HIRED AT 70K AN OFFICE. WE NOT GOING TO CONSOLIDATE ANYTHING.
LOOK AT DICTATORSHIPS, SOCIALISTS COUNTRY, THE GOVNERMENT DOES EVERYTHING, BUT NOTHING GETS DONE.
IF YOU WANT TO BE IN JAKARTA, OR TEHRAN BABY, GO..................
BUT THIS IS AMERICA, THIS IS OUR SYSTEM, YOU CAN'T WORK WITH IT RESIGN.
In the coming year, we’ll also work to rebuild people’s faith in the institution of government. Because you deserve to know exactly how and where your tax dollars are being spent, you’ll be able to go to a website and get that information for the very first time in history. Because you deserve to know when your elected officials are meeting with lobbyists, I ask Congress to do what the White House has already done -- put that information online. And because the American people deserve to know that special interests aren’t larding up legislation with pet projects, both parties in Congress should know this: If a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it. I will veto it. (Applause.)
ISN'T THAT WHAT HOPE AND CHANGE AND TRANSPARENCY WAS ABOUT, YOU DIDN'T PUT THAT HEALTH CARE BILL ONLINE, WE HAD TO THREATEN YOUR PHYSICAL HEALTH TO PUT IT ON CSPAN STOP LYING.
DON'T FALL FOR THE EARMARK CRAP, HE WANTS MORE CONTORL OF THE MONEY.
TELL THEM HARRY REID.............
YES, ME AND REID ARE COOL AT LEAST FOR NOW BECAUSE HE CALLED CHINA THE DICTARTORSHIP THAT IT IS. HE FELT THAT WILL OF THE PEOPLE HEAT.......
The 21st century government that’s open and competent. A government that lives within its means. An economy that’s driven by new skills and new ideas. Our success in this new and changing world will require reform, responsibility, and innovation. It will also require us to approach that world with a new level of engagement in our foreign affairs.
YOU LIVE WITHIN OUR MEANS AND BEYOND........WHAT KIND OF ENGAGEMENT MORE LETTERS TO THE AYOTOLLAH? MORE APOLGIZING? MORE NOBEL PEACE PRIZES? MORE START TREATIES?
Just as jobs and businesses can now race across borders, so can new threats and new challenges. No single wall separates East and West. No one rival superpower is aligned against us.
YOU UNITED ALL THE ENEMIES..........YOU GOT THAT RIGHT.
And so we must defeat determined enemies, wherever they are, and build coalitions that cut across lines of region and race and religion. And America’s moral example must always shine for all who yearn for freedom and justice and dignity. And because we’ve begun this work, tonight we can say that American leadership has been renewed and America’s standing has been restored.
WE CAN'T GET THAT DONE UNTIL YOU LEAVE OFFICE, NEXT ,IT'S GETTING LATE.
Look to Iraq, where nearly 100,000 of our brave men and women have left with their heads held high. (Applause.) American combat patrols have ended, violence is down, and a new government has been formed. This year, our civilians will forge a lasting partnership with the Iraqi people, while we finish the job of bringing our troops out of Iraq. America’s commitment has been kept. The Iraq war is coming to an end. (Applause.)
DON'T EVEN MENTION OUR BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHEN YOU KNOW 4 YEARS AGO, YOU WAS CALLING THEM MONSTERS AND MICHELLE SAID IN NO WAY COULD SHE RESPECT SOMEONE SERVING OUR COUNTRY..................
YOU SHADY ............ ENIMEN SLIM SHADY SHADY........
Of course, as we speak, al Qaeda and their affiliates continue to plan attacks against us. Thanks to our intelligence and law enforcement professionals, we’re disrupting plots and securing our cities and skies. And as extremists try to inspire acts of violence within our borders, we are responding with the strength of our communities, with respect for the rule of law, and with the conviction that American Muslims are a part of our American family. (Applause.)
AMERICAN MUSLIMS ARE PART OF OUR FAMILY, BUT THEY AIN'T THE HEAD OF THE TABLE EITHER, REMEMBER THAT.................FORT HOOD..........DON'T GET AHEAD OF YOURSELVES AMERICA MUSLIMS, DON'T LET BARACK GET YOU DEALT WITH.
We’ve also taken the fight to al Qaeda and their allies abroad. In Afghanistan, our troops have taken Taliban strongholds and trained Afghan security forces. Our purpose is clear: By preventing the Taliban from reestablishing a stranglehold over the Afghan people, we will deny al Qaeda the safe haven that served as a launching pad for 9/11.
MAN PLEASE THEY LEAVING NOW AND THE TALIBAN IS RUNNING THINGS AGAIN, YOU GOTTA KEEP YOUR CAMPAIGN PROMISE RIGHT?
Thanks to our heroic troops and civilians, fewer Afghans are under the control of the insurgency. There will be tough fighting ahead, and the Afghan government will need to deliver better governance. But we are strengthening the capacity of the Afghan people and building an enduring partnership with them. This year, we will work with nearly 50 countries to begin a transition to an Afghan lead. And this July, we will begin to bring our troops home. (Applause.)
DIDN'T I JUST SAY THAT?
In Pakistan, al Qaeda’s leadership is under more pressure than at any point since 2001. Their leaders and operatives are being removed from the battlefield. Their safe havens are shrinking. And we’ve sent a message from the Afghan border to the Arabian Peninsula to all parts of the globe: We will not relent, we will not waver, and we will defeat you. (Applause.)
MAN PLEASE, IRAN HAS BECOME NUCLEAR CHAVEZ HAS LOST HIS MIND. THE ONLY ONE PAYING ATTENTION TO YOU IS YOU.
American leadership can also be seen in the effort to secure the worst weapons of war. Because Republicans and Democrats approved the New START treaty, far fewer nuclear weapons and launchers will be deployed. Because we rallied the world, nuclear materials are being locked down on every continent so they never fall into the hands of terrorists. (Applause.)
THAT TREATY ALSO REMOVED OUR ABLITY TO EXTEND OUR MISSLE DEFENSE PLANS.......
Because of a diplomatic effort to insist that Iran meet its obligations, the Iranian government now faces tougher sanctions, tighter sanctions than ever before. And on the Korean Peninsula, we stand with our ally South Korea, and insist that North Korea keeps its commitment to abandon nuclear weapons. (Applause.)
THOSE SANCTIONS WASN'T TOUGH ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GET THOSE CENTRIFUGES AND THAT HACKING CRAP WAS JUST PUNKISH, JUST BLOW THEM UP AND BE THROUGH.......
This is just a part of how we’re shaping a world that favors peace and prosperity. With our European allies, we revitalized NATO and increased our cooperation on everything from counterterrorism to missile defense. We’ve reset our relationship with Russia, strengthened Asian alliances, built new partnerships with nations like India.
YOU RIGHT RUSSIA NUMBER ONE, WE NUMBER TWO, THE ONLY THING WE CONCERNED WITH WITH INDIA IS KEEPING HOLLYWOOD, HOLLYWOOD AND NOT BALIWOOD.
This March, I will travel to Brazil, Chile, and El Salvador to forge new alliances across the Americas. Around the globe, we’re standing with those who take responsibility -– helping farmers grow more food, supporting doctors who care for the sick, and combating the corruption that can rot a society and rob people of opportunity.
ALL THREE COUNTRIES THAT SUED ARIZONA AND YOU WONDER WHY I CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT?
Recent events have shown us that what sets us apart must not just be our power -– it must also be the purpose behind it. In south Sudan -– with our assistance -– the people were finally able to vote for independence after years of war. (Applause.) Thousands lined up before dawn. People danced in the streets. One man who lost four of his brothers at war summed up the scene around him: “This was a battlefield for most of my life,” he said. “Now we want to be free.” (Applause.)
YOU DON'T SUPPORT ANY ALLIES ASK ISREAL, YOU GOING TO LEAV SUDAN HANGING TO.........
And we saw that same desire to be free in Tunisia, where the will of the people proved more powerful than the writ of a dictator. And tonight, let us be clear: The United States of America stands with the people of Tunisia, and supports the democratic aspirations of all people. (Applause.)
We must never forget that the things we’ve struggled for, and fought for, live in the hearts of people everywhere. And we must always remember that the Americans who have borne the greatest burden in this struggle are the men and women who serve our country. (Applause.)
Tonight, let us speak with one voice in reaffirming that our nation is united in support of our troops and their families. Let us serve them as well as they’ve served us -- by giving them the equipment they need, by providing them with the care and benefits that they have earned, and by enlisting our veterans in the great task of building our own nation.
ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Our troops come from every corner of this country -– they’re black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American. They are Christian and Hindu, Jewish and Muslim. And, yes, we know that some of them are gay. Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love. (Applause.) And with that change, I call on all our college campuses to open their doors to our military recruiters and ROTC. It is time to leave behind the divisive battles of the past. It is time to move forward as one nation. (Applause.)
MAN, THE MOMENT DON'T ASK DON'T TELL WAS SIGNED, IT KILLED THE MORALE OF OUR MILITARY...........
We should have no illusions about the work ahead of us. Reforming our schools, changing the way we use energy, reducing our deficit –- none of this will be easy. All of it will take time. And it will be harder because we will argue about everything. The costs. The details. The letter of every law.
AIN'T GOING TO BE NO ARUGING BOO-BOO. JUST A LOT OF NO'S.............
Of course, some countries don’t have this problem. If the central government wants a railroad, they build a railroad, no matter how many homes get bulldozed. If they don’t want a bad story in the newspaper, it doesn’t get written.
IS THAT A SIDEWAYS THREAT?
MAN WATCH YOURSELF............
And yet, as contentious and frustrating and messy as our democracy can sometimes be, I know there isn’t a person here who would trade places with any other nation on Earth. (Applause.)
HEAR YOU TELL IT, THIS IS THE LAST PLACE FOLK WANT TO BE.
We may have differences in policy, but we all believe in the rights enshrined in our Constitution. We may have different opinions, but we believe in the same promise that says this is a place where you can make it if you try. We may have different backgrounds, but we believe in the same dream that says this is a country where anything is possible. No matter who you are. No matter where you come from.
IT DOES MATTER WHERE YOU COME FROM, THE CONSTITUTION IS FOR LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS ONLY.
That dream is why I can stand here before you tonight. That dream is why a working-class kid from Scranton can sit behind me. (Laughter and applause.) That dream is why someone who began by sweeping the floors of his father’s Cincinnati bar can preside as Speaker of the House in the greatest nation on Earth. (Applause.)
BIDEN AND BOEHNER LEGAL YOU NOT...............THE FACT THAT YOU IN THE WHITE HOSUE IS MOST OF US GREATEST NIGHTMARE
That dream -– that American Dream -– is what drove the Allen Brothers to reinvent their roofing company for a new era. It’s what drove those students at Forsyth Tech to learn a new skill and work towards the future. And that dream is the story of a small business owner named Brandon Fisher.
Brandon started a company in Berlin, Pennsylvania, that specializes in a new kind of drilling technology. And one day last summer, he saw the news that halfway across the world, 33 men were trapped in a Chilean mine, and no one knew how to save them.
But Brandon thought his company could help. And so he designed a rescue that would come to be known as Plan B. His employees worked around the clock to manufacture the necessary drilling equipment. And Brandon left for Chile.
Along with others, he began drilling a 2,000-foot hole into the ground, working three- or four-hour -- three or four days at a time without any sleep. Thirty-seven days later, Plan B succeeded, and the miners were rescued. (Applause.) But because he didn’t want all of the attention, Brandon wasn’t there when the miners emerged. He’d already gone back home, back to work on his next project.
And later, one of his employees said of the rescue, “We proved that Center Rock is a little company, but we do big things.” (Applause.)
We do big things.
From the earliest days of our founding, America has been the story of ordinary people who dare to dream. That’s how we win the future.
We’re a nation that says, “I might not have a lot of money, but I have this great idea for a new company.” “I might not come from a family of college graduates, but I will be the first to get my degree.” “I might not know those people in trouble, but I think I can help them, and I need to try.” “I’m not sure how we’ll reach that better place beyond the horizon, but I know we’ll get there. I know we will.”
We do big things. (Applause.)
The idea of America endures. Our destiny remains our choice. And tonight, more than two centuries later, it’s because of our people that our future is hopeful, our journey goes forward, and the state of our union is strong.
AMERICA AIN'T ABOUT BIG THINGS, IT'S ABOUT DOING YOUR THING.
FREEDOM, FAITH AND FELLOWSHIP...........
Thank you. God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America. (Applause.)
HAVE MERCY IT'S OVER..............BE BACK TOMORROW!
