Short version of Obama's speech:

"It's all Bush's fault, and we need to raise taxes."

Also, Obamacare is magic, and Paul Ryan wants your grandmother raped to death on the street.

All those czars and he hasn't thought to appoint a Speech Writing Czar yet? Guess he figures it's cheaper to recycle the same old blame speech we've been hearing for 2-1/2 years already.

The deficit is Bush's fault, or his administration anyway, if only because I have a hard time believing only one person could have run up such a huge debt.

And we do need to raise taxes to pay for it. I'm already paying for it with furloughs and workloughs. I think people richer than me need to shoulder their share of the repayment, too.

I'm already paying for it, anon. Get a real job in the private sector.

As I was told when I worked in Aerospace in the early 90's, just before the really big layoffs, we're all overpaid, and some adjustments will need to be made.
The Public Sector (workers paid for by Private Sector taxes) are in that position now, as they have never had layoffs of the magnitude of any ONE industry, and I specifically mention Steel, Auto, Coal, and Aerospace/Defense.
Furloughs and workloughs are merely band-aid remedies for the arterial hemmorhage of deficit spending Government is experiencing.
