I’m a Democrat. But I believe what Republican Abraham Lincoln believed: That Government should do for people only what they cannot do better by themselves, and no more.
Heard a lot of shouting on this line. Guessing some aren’t buying it.

Love this line on personal responsibility: "They know that this generation’s success is only possible because past generations felt a responsibility to each other, and to their country’s future, and they know our way of life will only endure if we feel that same sense of shared responsibility. That’s how we’ll reduce our deficit. That’s an America built to last. "

Obama says no more bailouts: "So if you’re a big bank or financial institution, you are no longer allowed to make risky bets with your customers’ deposits. You’re required to write out a “living will” that details exactly how you’ll pay the bills if you fail – because the rest of us aren’t bailing you out ever again." But wait … we saw “Inside Job.”

In the next few weeks, I will sign an Executive Order clearing away the red tape that slows down too many construction projects. But you need to fund these projects. Take the money we’re no longer spending at war, use half of it to pay down our debt, and use the rest to do some nation-building right here at home.
Bro’s feisty tonight.

“For the first time in nine years, there are no Americans fighting in  Iraq. For the first time in two decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat  to this country.  Most of al-Qaida’s top lieutenants have been defeated.  The Taliban’s momentum has been broken, and some troops in Afghanistan  have begun to come home.”

The best screencap, and angle, of the night.

There’s no reason why Congress shouldn’t at least set a clean energy standard that creates a market for innovation. So far, you haven’t acted. Well tonight, I will. I’m directing my Administration to allow the development of clean energy on enough public land to power three million homes. And I’m proud to announce that the Department of Defense, the world’s largest consumer of energy, will make one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history – with the Navy purchasing enough capacity to power a quarter of a million homes a year.
Don’t want to work with me, Congress? WELL I GON’ WORK AROUND YOU!

Eric Cantor is not amused.

Best face of the night.

For most people, it’s harder to frown than smile. For Eric Cantor, it’s the opposite.

Tonight, I’m announcing the creation of a Trade Enforcement Unit that will be charged with investigating unfair trade practices in countries like China. There will be more inspections to prevent counterfeit or unsafe goods from crossing our borders. And this Congress should make sure that no foreign company has an advantage over American manufacturing when it comes to accessing finance or new markets like Russia. Our workers are the most productive on Earth, and if the playing field is level, I promise you – America will always win.
Obama • Pushing tough language against bad trade practices. Makes a lot of sense in the wake of the recent NY Times article on Apple, but worries us in the case of SOPA.
