    "You don't go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage," Obama said. "You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to save for college. You prioritize. You make tough choices."

    Although I'm not an Obama fan, I agree with the Rev here.

    I just wish King Zero would listen to his own advice instead of digging us deeper and deeper into debt.

    That would be a first for a sitting POTUS.

    We have the government that the Boston Revolution gave us in 1787. You all want to revert to the Articles of Confederation, fine with me.

    With the way the Federal govt (congress) has abused the Constitution, the AOC look a lot better.

    I agree with the idea of not spending money you don't have (although it seems kind of hypocritical for Obamo at the moment). However that is really not the point of the story, but rather that the President has twice now singled out a city in this country when making his point and they don't like him doing so.

    The point of the story is not the point of this thread and no one here needed to have that pointed out to them. I provided the link as the source of the quote and nothing more. This is about agreeing with Obama when at all possible and nothing more.

    Oh OK, When someone post a link usually it is in regards to the post.

    As far as agreeing with him, while I agree with the idea behind his words, they just seem shallow with all the spending he is actually pushing down our throats.

    It's kinda reading Luke 4:10-11 and sayin', "I agree with Satan."

    How do Obama's words match up against his actions for the past year?

    What good does it do to say that you agree with a man's words when his actions are the opposite?

    I don't understand the point of this thread.

    So true. I just do not want it to be said that I refuse to agree with him on anything. If I can I will. And like you I agree with the sentiment behind the words. But hypocritical it is with all the spending he wants.

    I was one of those who accused you of that, and you've obviously proven me wrong. We shouldn't disagree someone just because we don't like them (or, for that matter, just agree with someone just because we like them). If we agree with the guy, then we shouldn't be made fearful of saying we agree with the guy. Besides, agreeing with Obama on some points does not make a person a liberal, any more that agreeing with Bush makes one a conservative.

    True. Obama has said somethings that I agree with and many many things that I disagree with.

    I doubt there is a single person in the world that I would either agree with 100% or disagree with 100%.

    For instance, Obama said that we should help the Haiti victims because we are Americans and that is what America does.

    I agree with him on that point.
