Watch as President Obama gives Apple a shout out during the State of the Union

0. phoneArena 12 Feb 2013, 22:31 posted on

President Barack Obama gave a shout out to Apple and its CEO Tim Cook during Tuesday night's State of the Union address and while there could be a number of reasons for the president to mention Apple, it was the decision of the Cupertino based firm to return some production to the U.S. that motivated the president to mention the company...

I really hate to get political on a tech site, but your widely ignorant and one-sided argument has me baffled. You are aware that Congress can not (and with the Republicans, will not) agree on many issues that could have been addressed and solved with the President's ideas? Healthcare reform, ending the Bush tax cuts, budget overhauls...all shot down in Congress because they don't fit the Republican agenda.

The GOP has made it their mission to stifle Obama's impact on the country, since he's not THEIR President. He is America's President, like it or not. And as for support, I'd say he still has plenty of it. He did get re-elected, after all.

That's all I really have to say. I expect thumbs down and/or a rebuttal, but if you can criticize Obama all day long, I'll support Obama all day long.

Do you already forget that Obama too pushed to extend the Bush era tax cuts?

As for congress do you not realize the Democrats control the Senate? Obamacare which is widely unpopular will take affect next January. I can't afford Obamacare and yet if I don't buy into it, ill be fined! How ridiculous.

As for popularity that can go both ways. Bush afterall got re-elected friend.

I like a good debate, keep em coming.

The cost of you will have have to pay for healthcare is is off-set by a tax credit for individuals and small businesses under 50 employees. There, now you can afford it. Or, you can just go to the emergency room and make the rest of us pay for it.

Finally someone who gets it... Obama is after the same thing Bush was after... Republicans and Democrats play as if they can't stand eachother. Truth is they have one agenda and get along just fine. (not all politicians but maybe 93%)
Regardless who got into office back in '08. The same outcome would have came.

Your both probably right. Former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura said behind the curtains they're mostly all friends and agree more times than not.

Apple sucks and lacks any innovation but the fact that they're american makes me root for them a tiny bit. I still prefer Microsoft and Google though. The sooner Motorola (the only real american phone manufacturer) makes the next nexus the happier I will be. I support American companies first and then maybe Europe as well. So I wish Nokia well too.

Yup. Too bad all they represent is greed, dishonesty, outsourcing, lies, and unfair market practice. Great horse you've hooked your wagon to there.

Under the rule of the 22nd Amendment, US presidents can serve two four-year terms of office, and a maximum of 10 years if succeeding a President for less than half of a full term.

The speechwriters.are out of touch on this. Bad idea to give praise.to a company that pays no taxes, is having a TOKEN amount of computers "made" here, and still gladly supports and enforced borderline-slave labor to make its junk, while raping the earth in an overly aggressive way to get the materials to make the same.

Motorola/Google: the only major American mobile device company worth our support. (American = USA, otherwise we could add BlackBerry to that list). Heck, other companies even have factories in Mexico to avoid the Chinese problems.

I like how everyone thinks the economies solutions are so simple there is no clear answer. There is no black or white just alot of grey. If everything was so simple id be a billionaire living in a flying house drinkjng a beer on a lawn chair. Yet because there is no way for everyone to all go with one decision we have this he said she said ongoing argument. I doubt none of you guys could last as a president and the stress and crap they go through. Every president has his haters and they all seem to sit behind a computer and b***h about it rather than do something.
