WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama delivered an election-year message to Republicans: Game on. The GOP – in Congress and on the campaign trail – signaled it’s ready for the fight.

In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, Obama issued a populist call for income equality that echoed the Occupy Wall Street movement. He also challenged GOP lawmakers to work with him or move aside so he could use the power of the presidency to produce results for an electorate uncertain whether he deserves another term.

“It seemed to be more of a populist campaign speech rather than a recipe for economic recovery” said Senator John Cornyn (TX-R).

Obama faces a deeply divided Congress. He vowed to fight obstruction with action in a speech to a packed chamber and tens of millions of Americans watching in prime time.

    Income equality. What a Marxist farce. Nobody owes you anything. Get out there and WORK for it. Ask the multimillionaire immigrants who own flourishing businesses if anyone ever gave them anything. I can’t wait for November to vote this pinko clown OUT.
