You have to go back to Nixon to match these low approval numbers!

    Washington (CNN) -- Three numbers to keep in mind Tuesday night as President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address: six, 30 and 43.

    Six as in the number of seats Republicans need to gain this November to take control of the Senate.

    30: The historical average of House seats gained by the other party -- in this case the Republicans -- in a two-term president's "six-year itch" midterm election.

    And 43%, of course, is Obama's job approval rating -- a reminder that his political standing is weak, though up slightly from its recent low point, as he stands before a closely divided Congress -- and country -- to lay out his agenda for year six of his presidency.



    This year's State of the Union is a defining test for Obama - CNN.com


    Another Clinton White House veteran disagreed, arguing this president is too weakened and the 2014 campaign landscape too troublesome to seize the initiative.

    "State of the Union means nothing," this Democrat said, speaking only on condition of anonymity. "Re-read last year's address. How relevant was it last year in terms of how 2013 turned out?"

    In fact, Obama failed to get any of his top 2013 State of the Union priorities through Congress. Congress ignored his calls for a new jobs program, for new gun controls and for sweeping immigration reform.

    In short.....the dems are TOAST!

    I can't sit through another one of Obama's "hate of the Union" addresses. If those worthless pieces of crap would stop applauding for 3 minutes after every word that he says, I might be able to tolerate it. But as is........he makes me sick and so do the pukes who interrupt after every word. It's nothing but a dog and pony show anyway. He lies through his teeth and tries to get people to believe his lies. Nothing more, nothing less.

    He'll get a little spike in his approval numbers for a week or so, until people come back to reality and realize that everything that he said is just more b.s. lies.

    Obama will talk about how he's bumping up the minimum wage required for all FEDERAL contracts. But the fact is, that it doesn't change ANY of the existing Federal contracts, and for the future contracts, the contractors will just add more to the cost to cover the higher minimum wage amount. So who pays for it?????? That's right, the American tax payer.

    But the low information voters will salivate over this hike to $10.10 per hour increase, but won't realize that it doesn't change one thing for them personally. Their "chubby" won't last long.
