What Obama "should" do

I've come to loathe the "what Obama should do" genre of punditry. The advice is often unrealistic and inevitably contradictory. It's only value in my mind is to point up how being President is really a horrible job. There's simply no way to balance such conflicting demands.

That being said, this wish list of "what Obama should say" in the SOTU is interesting. I'm going with this one:
Adam Green, co-founder, Progressive Change Campaign Committee: “He should use the State of the Union to draw a firm line in the sand against any reduction of the Social Security benefits that American workers earned, paid for, and do not want to see cut. Then he should offer a progressive vision for creating jobs and fighting for middle class families over big corporations.”
Not holding my breath waiting for it to happen. At this point I'm just hoping he doesn't parrot the "fiscal conservatives" talking point about how Social Security is going to ruin us unless it's "fixed." And I don't want to hear anything about "hard choices" unless he's talking about military spending.

What he should say it that after a 2 year games of "What's Waldo" regarding his birth certificate, he's a fraud and it doesn't exist. Even the governor of Hawaii, an Obama crony, says that can't find it. The lying huckster is about to be exposed.

Exposed, sure - keep holding your breath and if you have to keep yapping, please explain how the hell you would have the slightest ability to know what you insist you know?

Were you there when he was born? Do you know anyone who was? Have you access to any private information, or are you just so desperate to find something bad, you've twisted your underwear and your few working synapses into a knot?

No, just keep holding your breath. It smells better in here when you do.
