    The problem of society is that it lets the masses push them and here the Republicans are using it to their advantage. The message of the President is clear, but the Republicans want to confuse it.Officials are not doing what they should do. Americans are not lazy.

    They are not lazy, they leave things up to others countries which saves companies so they do not need to pay American wages. One more thing if the Gop candidates need to distort what the president says or does, maybe they should try another person.

    Yes, I agree Linda....and I wonder if anyone remembers Santorum saying to a group of folks last year that America was thriving and doing well up until 1965! Why didn't liberals jump out and question his reasoning for making such a remark? Why isn't that when the 'voters rights bill' was passed?? What was he trying to say? I noticed the media didn't jump all over that!
